Verse of the Day: Jeremiah 10:23
Lord, I know that people’s lives are not their own; it is not for them to direct their steps.
The devil tries to trick you into thinking “this is my life and I can do what I want with it”. We know that the devil is a liar and that kind of thinking only leads to sin. The truth is, your life is not your own, you belong to God. When you accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior and surrendered your life to God you became a new creation. God has a plan for your life and He promises to guide and direct your steps in the way you should go. Trust in the Lord with all your heart and the Holy Spirit will take you down a path of truth and obedience that leads to an eternity in heaven.
Verse of the Day: James 1:22
But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.
If you are just hearing the Word of God but not applying it to your life and expecting your life to change you’re fooling yourself. That would be like reading a diet book and expecting to lose weight just from reading it. You have to apply it to your life, you have to change your habits and it has to be a way of life not just a Sunday event. Doers of the Word hear it, understand it, receive it and obey it.
Verse of the Day: Psalm 86:7
When I am in distress, I call to you, because you answer me.
In this world we will have troubles. They can be troubles we bring on ourselves by our own actions or they can be brought on from other people. Sometimes they’re from the devil who tempts us and schemes against us. It can be an illness or hardship beyond our control. They can be troubles that last for a day, for a while or for a season. The important thing to know is that when you have a relationship with God you can always call on Him and know that He hears you and answers you. God hears your every prayer and when you learn to trust in Him, He will give you peace. Even when you can’t find the right words to pray God hears your heart.
Verse of the Day: Genesis 16:13
She gave this name to the Lord who spoke to her: “You are the God who sees me,” for she said, “I have now seen the One who sees me.”
God sees you. He sees everything you are going through, He knows your heart and He knows your pain. He looks at you with His eyes of love, mercy and grace. God loves you more than you could ever imagine and you need to know that you are not alone. Trust God and give Him your brokenness, your pain and everything that is weighing you down. Call upon the Lord, praise Him and allow Him to heal your heart and lead you to restoration.
Verse of the Day: Luke 13:12
When Jesus saw her, he called her forward and said to her, “Woman, you are set free from your infirmity.”
Jesus already knows your condition and He is calling you to draw nearer because He loves you and has compassion for you. If you need healing come to Jesus. He can heal your mind, body and soul. Take the first step to receive healing and come to Jesus in faith. Whatever chains are holding you down, whatever illness, heartache or trauma, give it all to Him and let Him set you free and heal you.
Verse of the Day: Romans 15:13
May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
Without hope one feel helpless, alone and powerless. As believers we know that our God is the source of all hope. Hope for healing, hope for peace, hope for joy and hope for the future here on earth and in heaven. All hope comes from knowing, believing and trusting God. By His love, grace and mercy God has given us the precious gift of hope through the power of the Holy Spirit. If you feel hopeless, seek a relationship with the author of all hope, the Lord our God.
Verse of the Day: John 3:30
He must become greater; I must become less.
More of Jesus, less of me in all things. We need Jesus in our hearts, in our lives, in our relationships, in our families, in our churches, in our work place, in our schools, in our communities, in this world – We need more of JESUS! There is nothing our soul needs more than Jesus. The world keeps forcing Jesus out of their lives and then they wonder why things aren’t going well, why things are dark – Jesus is the Light of the world. Whoever follows Jesus will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life. Open up your heart to Jesus, let His light shine in you for all the world to see.
