The Seventh Time

1 Kings 18 43-44.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  1 Kings 18:43-44

“Go and look toward the sea”, he told his servant.  And he went up and looked.  There is nothing there,” he said.  The seventh time the servant reported, “A cloud as small as a man’s hand is rising from the sea.”

 

Keep having faith in God, keep believing, keep hoping, keep praising Him, and keep waiting for His favor no matter how long it takes for your prayer to be answered, don’t give up. Praise God while you wait on Him even if it takes seven times or seven hundred times.

Avoid Negativity

1 peter 3 10

 

Verse of the Day:  1 Peter 3:10

Whoever would love life and see good days must keep their tongue from evil and their lips from deceitful speech.

 

Embrace life, be kind, be sympathetic, be loving, be compassionate, be humble. Keep your tongue from speaking foul, obscene or unwholesome words. Don’t lie or say hurtful things to anyone. Instead, speak blessings, be a blessing and you will receive a blessing. A forgiven heart is a changed heart, filled with gratitude and love. Avoid negativity by speaking positivity into your life.

God Will Fight for You

1 peter 2 23

 

Verse of the Day:  1 Peter 2:23

When they hurled their insults at him, he did not retaliate; when he suffered, he made no threats. Instead, he entrusted himself to him who judges justly.

 

It’s in our nature to protect ourselves when we are being attacked whether it’s insults, criticism, or lies. We want to fight back and retaliate with more of the same, we want to defend ourselves with our own arguments.  But when Jesus was being insulted and suffering He did not retaliate.  He put his trust in His Heavenly Father and let God’s will be done.  Put your trust in God and let Him be your defender, He will fight for you and He will judge your enemies accordingly.

Greater Is He That Is In You

1 john 4 4 kjv

 

Verse of the Day:  1 John 4:4

Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.

 

We have been chosen and adopted by God as His own children.  His unshakeable power lives in us and His Word is written on our hearts as we experience His truth. Because God lives in us we are overcomers and by faith we have the victory over evil.

Glory to God

psalm 63 3

 

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 63:3

Because your love is better than life, my lips will glorify you.

 

Our worst day with God is better than our best day without Him. God’s love, grace and mercy cover us because He is faithful even when we are not.  We have so much to be grateful for and if we begin to glorify God for all He has done for us and count our blessing we would see that His love is better than life itself.

My Rock

psalm 18 2

 

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 18:2

The Lord is my rock, my fortress, and my deliverer; in whom I will trust.

 

When we have a personal relationship with God we learn to trust Him in all situations.  We know that no matter what is going on around us we can count on Him to be there for us because we know He loves us and always has our best interest at heart. People may fail you but God never will.

Forgiven

isaiah 1 18

 

Verse of the Day:  Isaiah 1:18

“Come now, let us settle the matter,” says the Lord. “Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool.”

 

Your sins have been forgiven through the blood of Jesus Christ. What once was scarlet, is now white as snow. Your sins are forgiven. Jesus paid the ultimate price for you and your debt has been forgiven. Let the guilt and shame of the past be cleansed by God’s grace and mercy.
