Praise the Lord!

Psalm 119 164

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 119:164

Seven times a day I praise you for your righteous laws.

There is no set number of times a day we must praise God each day but wouldn’t it be wonderful if we just stopped what we were doing throughout the day to delight and please God with our praise, to give thanks and honor to the one who is worthy of praise? We have so much to be thankful for and it doesn’t take but a few moments to say, “Thank you God!” It doesn’t even matter what we are going though, even in difficult times, through faith we can still lift up our hands to praise our God. We can praise Him with our words and with our singing and give Him all the glory!

God Will Get You Through It

2 Corinthians 4 8-9

Verse of the Day:  2 Corinthians 4:8-9

We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed.

The Coronavirus pandemic is all over the news and on everyone’s mind. It’s affecting our physical health, mental health, and our work, home and social life. People are scared and it’s important to take every precaution possible to help contain the spread of this virus. As Christians, we need to remember that God did not give us a spirit of fear but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. Jesus said we would have troubles but then He said not to worry because He overcame the world.

Too Many Blessing to Count  

Psalm 40 5

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 40:5

Many, Lord my God, are the wonders you have done, the things you planned for us. None can compare with you; were I to speak and tell of your deeds, they would be too many to declare.

God is good all the time and He has wonderful blessings planned for you, including the gift of salvation. Jesus came to save the lost, to free the enslaved and to offer the gift of eternal life. There is no way we could even begin to count all of God’s blessings. There is no other like our God and He is worthy to be praised for His goodness and mercy.

Be Generous to the Poor

Proverbs 3 27

 

Verse of the Day:  Proverbs 3:27

Do not withhold good from those to whom it is due, when it is in your power to act.

God wants you to help the poor and indigent. If you have the opportunity and are able to help someone don’t walk away or turn your back on them when they need you most. God has compassion for the poor and you are called to show His love, kindness and mercy to those in need. Be generous not only with your money but also with your time and talents by letting God work through you to help the destitute. You have been blessed so that you may be a blessing to others and He will not forget the effort and love you show them.

Forgiveness

Psalm 86 5 2

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 86:5

You, Lord, are forgiving and good, abounding in love to all who call to you.

God hates sin but He loves the sinners. If not for His love, mercy and forgiveness where would we be? He is good to all and offers forgiveness to anyone who calls on His holy name. He loves us so much He sent His only Son to die on the cross to pay for our sins so we could receive His forgiveness and mercy. He is ready to forgive and He won’t withhold His mercy. No sin is too great that He can’t forgive it. Come to Him with a sincere heart and ask to be forgiven through faith. Accept the Lord’s forgiveness and know that God will wipe the slate clean and give you a new start.

I’m Not Lucky, I’m Blessed

Numbers 6 24-26

Verse of the Day:  Numbers 6:24-26

The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make his face shine on you and be gracious to you; the Lord turn his face toward you and give you peace.

Don’t waste your time on lucky charms, four leaf clovers or any other superstitions. Instead, spend time in prayer with the living God who hears your prayers. Thank God for all your blessing for every good and perfect gift comes from above. The Lord pours His blessings and grace on His people. He, and He alone is the reason for your blessings and peace. May the Lord keep you in His hands and let His blessing surround you with His love. Let His righteousness shine on you and His mercy and grace rain upon you. May He show you favor all the days of your life in Jesus name.

The Full Armor of God

Ephesians 6 11 2

Verse of the Day:  Ephesians 6:11

Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes.

Just like a soldier going into battle you too must put on our full armor. God has equipped you with all you need to stand up to the devil’s schemes and plans. He has given you the belt of truth, the breastplate of righteousness, the gospel of peace, the shield of faith, the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God. Stand your ground against evil with your feet firmly rooted in the Lord and fight the good fight of the faith. There is one other thing you need before you go into battle, you must recognize that you already have the victory through Jesus Christ.
