Keep on Speaking

acts 18 9

 

Verse of the Day:  Acts 18:9

One night the Lord spoke to Paul, “Do not be afraid, keep on speaking, do not be silent.”

 

We live in a society where everyone wants to give their opinion on anything and everything. As believers in Christ we must be courageous and willing to stand up for what we believe in, Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.  Don’t be afraid to share Jesus with the world, just tell them what God has done for you.

Anger and Forgiveness

Psalm 37 8.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 37:8

Refrain from anger and turn from wrath; do not fret–it leads only to evil.

 

Sometimes, during an argument, in the heat of the moment we say things we don’t mean. We let our anger get the best of us and we lose control of our emotions. If you find yourself on either side of this situation you need to do two things: First, let go of your anger, it only leads to evil; and second, forgive each other because your heavenly Fathers forgives you. (Matthew 6:14)

God’s Promises

hebrews 6 18

 

Verse of the Day:  Hebrews 6:18

God did this so that, by two unchangeable things in which it is impossible for God to lie, we who have fled to take hold of the hope set before us may be greatly encouraged.

 

The Bible tells us that God cannot lie. His promises are unchangeable. We can be confident in and count on God’s promises for all eternity. Not only can we count on God’s promises but we can also live our lives by them.

Know Him Personally

Psalm 139 16.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 139:16

Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.

 

Before we were ever born, God saw us and He knew all about us. He knew everything from our first day to our last. He sees us, He hears us, He knows our thoughts and He knows our hearts. Isn’t it wonderful to know that our God knows us personally?  Now, we must not only know of Him and His works, but we must seek to know Him personally.

That I May Know Him Better

Ephesians 1 17.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Ephesians 1:17

I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better.

 

My deepest wish and desire is that I may know Him better.  With every day, week, month and year that passes my hope is that I may gain wisdom and revelation that brings me closer to Him. I want more of you, God, less of me and more of you, God.

Daily Encouragement

hebrews 3 13

 

Verse of the Day:  Hebrews 3:13

But encourage one another daily, as long as it is called “Today,” so that none of you may be hardened by sin’s deceitfulness.

 

There is enough negativity in the world today, instead of spreading more speak words of encouragement.  God has called us to encourage each other daily.  Don’t let sin harden your heart, instead be kind to one another. You never know what someone may be going through and a kind word may help them get through the day.

A Two-Step Process

psalm 37 3

 

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 37:3

Trust in the LORD and do good; dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture.

 

There is a two-step process to receive this promise. The Lord will take care of all your needs but you need to trust in Him and do good.  Notice it says “and” do good, not “or” do good. While you are waiting and trusting on God to fulfill His promise have faith. Moreover, do good, always keeping His commandments and doing the things that are pleasing to the Him.
