10 Days of Thanksgiving – Day 6: Thankful for Spiritual Freedom

Psalm 100 4.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 100:4

Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name.

 

I am thankful for the freedom to be able to enter into the house of the Lord to praise and worship my Lord and Savior.  Yes, we have a constitutionally protected right to religious freedom and that’s great, but I’m talking about the spiritual freedom we received when Jesus died on the cross and paid the price for our sins.  I’m talking about abiding in God’s truth which has set us free from a life of sin and death.  Because of God’s love and mercy, we can have a relationship with Him, we can come into his presence to praise and worship Him and for that I am thankful.

Now Is the Right Time

2 Corinthians 6 2

 

Verse of the Day:  2 Corinthians 6:2

For he says, “In the time of my favor I heard you, and in the day of salvation I helped you.” I tell you, now is the time of God’s favor, now is the day of salvation.

 

NOW is the right time to give your life to God, now is the right time to heed His call, today is the right time to be saved.  Don’t put it off until it’s too late. Jesus is coming soon!

Make Wise Decisions

James 1 5

 

Verse of the Day:  James 1:5

If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you.

 

When you have a decision to make that you are uncertain about, take it to the Lord in prayer.  God is wise and all knowing, the giver of all good things.  Bring your concerns to Him with sincerity and ask for guidance and wisdom to make the right decision.

Share the Love

1 John 4 11.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  1 John 4:11

Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.

 

God’s love flows to us and it also needs to flow through us.  When we receive God’s love it changes us so much that we should feel the need to share it by loving one another.  When we share God’s love with others the recipient is open to receive love not only from us but directly from God.  God’s love is meant to be shared.

Feeding the Homeless

 

To God be the glory!  Today my husband and I were able to provide food and drinks to a little over 300 people in the city of Phoenix, Arizona.  We praise God for his goodness and mercy.  We’re so grateful to be able to be a blessing to those in need.  God is good!

The Life That I Now Live

Verse of the Day:  Galatians 2:20

I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. And the life that I now live in my body, I live by faith, indeed, by the faithfulness of God’s Son, who loved me and gave himself for me.

 

The words repeat themselves in my head, “the life that I now live”.  It’s only by God’s grace and mercy I have “the life that I now live”.  It was not so long ago I lived a different life, a life focused on myself, a life without purpose or peace.  In order to get to where I am today I had to leave that life in the past. I had to surrender my life to God and focus on the future He has planned for me.   Now, because of God’s love, I live not on my own power or strength but through faith in Jesus Christ who loves me so much He died on the cross for me. I had to stop living in the past and start living by faith. Because He died for me, I now live my life for Him.
