Verse of the Day: Exodus 4:12
Now go, I will help you speak and teach you what to say.
If God has put a desire in you to share His Word with others don’t let fear stop you. He will help you speak and teach you what to say. Let God work through you as He gives you courage to share His Word and your testimony with others. Step out in faith and you will be fruitful.
Verse of the Day: Matthew 26:39
And going a little farther, He fell on His face and prayed, saying, my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me, nevertheless; not as I will, but as you will.
Jesus gave us the example of how to pray when going through something difficult. He prayed to God saying, if it’s possible let this difficult situation pass from me but let it be what you want, not what I want. God knows everything from the beginning to the end we just need to trust Him and pray for His will to be done in our lives.
Verse of the Day: Proverbs 19:11
A person’s wisdom yields patience; it is to one’s glory to overlook an offense.
Wise people are patient when others offend them, purposely or not. Don’t be so easily offended, instead show the offender God’s love and forgive them as God forgives your offenses. Hurt people, hurt people, wise people overlook offenses.
Verse of the Day: Psalm 119:15
I will meditate on your precepts, and contemplate your ways.
Do you know what a precept is? It is a command, a general rule intended to regulate behavior or thought. Instead of focusing on your problems or things that upset, disappoint or annoy you think about the way God wants you to deal with them, how He wants you to respond. God’s ways are pure and good and they are always better than your ways.
Verse of the Day: Matthew 7:12
So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets.
People think the “Golden Rule” was made up by man, but it’s actually Biblical. It’s so basic and fundamental that we teach it to our children yet, we as adults sometimes forget the principle. Treat others with fairness and mercy just as you would like to be treated.
Verse of the Day: Matthew 19:26
Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”
How amazing it is to know that the God we serve created the heavens and the earth. As human beings we have limitation to what we can do, but with God all things are possible. Stop putting human limitations on a God that has no limit to what He can do. Have faith and remember that with God ALL things are possible!
Verse of the Day: Micah 6:8
What does the Lord require of you? To do justice, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God.
God wants you to treat others fairly, behave morally righteous, show compassion and forgiveness even to those who don’t deserve it. Be respectful, gentle, live modestly, not thinking too highly of yourself. You don’t always have to behave the way you feel, but you should always behave in a way that pleases God.
Verse of the Day: James 3:17
Wisdom that comes from heaven is pure; then peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere.
Spiritual wisdom comes from God and it gives you the ability to live a life that is obedient to Him no matter what trials you face. Consistently seek God’s wisdom by reading the Bible and through prayer and you will begin to see the changes in yourself and in your life.
Verse of the Day: John 14:27
Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.
Things are going to happen in life that make you sad, scared or are just hard to get through. When your heart is hurting, troubled or afraid turn to Jesus, He’ll give you peace beyond compare.
Verse of the Day: 1 Timothy 2:1
I urge you first of all, to pray for all people. Ask God to help them, intercede on their behalf, and give thanks for them.
Take time to pray for your family, your friends, your co-workers, your neighbors and while you’re at it, pray for your enemies as well. We don’t always know what they are going through but one thing is for sure, they can always use our prayers.
