God is not unjust; he will not forget your work and the love you have shown him as you have helped his people and continue to help them.
The Lord blesses those who are a blessing to others. The love you show to God’s people as He puts it in your heart to help and encourage them is evidence of your faith and your love for Him. God is not unjust that He would ever forget the work you do or the love you show by helping and ministering to His people. Let God work through you to show love to His people as you grow spiritually and walk in His wisdom and truth. Any good deed you do with a right heart for His glory will not go unnoticed or unrewarded.
Heavenly Father, thank You for all the blessings in my life. I pray that you would work through me so I can be a blessing to others for Your honor and glory. Amen
To the end that my glory may sing praise to You and not be silent. O Lord my God, I will give thanks to You forever.
Although your life may not be perfect and you may have troubles, there is so much to be thankful for. Even with everything going on in the world today, you still have a great deal to be thankful for. No matter what is currently going on in your life, there is always something to be thankful for so count your blessings and not your troubles. Thank God for waking you up this morning. Thank Him for all that you do have. Thank Him for your salvation. Thank Him for His love and mercy and for who He is. Never stop giving thanks to God, even with your last breath give thanks to the Lord for He truly is worthy of praise and thanksgiving.
Heavenly Father, thank You, Lord, for all the blessing in my life both big and small. I am truly grateful for them all. Thank You for loving me and always being there for me. Most of all, thank You for the precious gift of salvation. Amen
Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and not be afraid: for the LORD JEHOVAH is my strength and my song; he also is become my salvation.
With all the uncertainty in the world around us we can remain unafraid because our trust is in God our Savior. We can face anything because God is our strength and our salvation. I don’t know who needs to hear this today but I’m here to remind you that God loves you and it doesn’t matter who or what is against you because God is for you. No matter what you’re facing God can turn it around. He has been there for you in the past, He is there for you now and He will always be there for you. Trust in the Lord Jehovah not only to give you strength but to be your strength, your song, and your salvation.
God, You are my strength when I am weak. You are with me when I feel alone. No matter what I am facing, You can turn it around. I will trust in You and not be afraid for You are my salvation. Amen
You make known to me the path of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence, with eternal pleasures at your right hand.
Until we find the path of life that leads us back to God we will have a longing to be complete. The only thing that can fill the emptiness is the love of God. This world is not our home. Heaven is our final destination. We are merely on the road that leads us to our Father’s house. How wonderful to be on the path that was laid out for us by our creator for one day we will be seated at His right hand in the joyful presence of our Savior.
Lord, help me to stay on the path that leads to You. Let Your Word and the Holy Spirit continue to guide and direct my steps until I am finally home in the presence of my Savior. Amen
When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd.
Jesus was not only concerned for the souls of the multitudes who followed Him, but also for their physical needs. We are called to be Christlike – gentle, caring and compassionate. There is a homeless epidemic in this country, many people are living in poverty and people are going hungry every day. The Coronavirus pandemic is making a complex problem even worse with many people losing their jobs, their homes and ultimately their lives. Everywhere you look there are people who desperately need help and they need Jesus. People are hurting and it’s up to us as Christians to find a way to do what we can to help them with their physical needs and by sharing the love and compassion of God to bring souls to the Good Shepherd, Jesus Christ. If not us, then who?
Lord, thank You for caring for me and taking care of my every need. Help me to share Your love and compassion with those that are hurting by helping with their physical needs and, Lord, help me lead them to You. Amen
For I desired mercy, and not sacrifice; and the knowledge of God more than burnt offerings.
God is more pleased with us showing mercy, love and compassion towards all people rather than formalities. More than sacrifices God wants you to know Him on a personal level. He wants you to trust in Him, submit to His will and be obedient to His laws. God wants you to worship Him in spirit and in truth rather than go through the motion of ceremonies when your heart is not right with Him. Rituals and sacrifices have their place in organized religion, but God wants your heart to be truly in it for the right reasons otherwise, they are meaningless.
Dear God, I am so truly grateful for Your love and mercy. Father, to know You and love You more is my sincere desire. I want to live a life that is pleasing to You in every way and I’m going to praise and worship You with all of my heart. Amen
My flesh and my heart may fail; but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.
We are not perfect, we make mistakes and we fall to temptations and tribulations. No matter how much we want to do better we sometimes fail, we sometimes let God and ourselves down. Sometimes we question God’s reasons for why things happen and sometimes we let our faith waiver. But we serve a loving God and no matter how many times we fall, He picks us up. He continues to love us because His love never fails. He loves us not because of who we are but because of who He is. Our body and spirit may fail us, but God never will. Draw near to the Lord, put your hope in Him, for He alone is our strength and our ever present and never failing refuge now and for all eternity.
Heavenly Father, I am so sorry for the times when I fail You. Thank You for never giving up on me, for always being there for me, and for Your unfailing love for me. I need You in every moment of every day. You alone are my hope and my strength. Amen
For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.
The Bible, which is the Word of God, isn’t some old irrelevant book of stories. It is alive and active today and forever. If you begin to read God’s Word daily, I promise, it will start to change your life. Ask God to reveal His Word to you. You’ll see how much He really loves you, His promises and His will for your life. Whatever you are going through the answer is found in God’s Word because it contains infinite wisdom from the Lord. Use it to guide you through life, to convict you when you need correction and to nourish your soul every day.
Thank You, God, for the gift of Your Holy Word. Open my eyes, my mind and my heart to receive every life changing word. Amen
The Lord is gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and rich in mercy.
Where would we be if not for God’s grace, compassion, patience and mercy? We serve a mighty God who can do anything and although we don’t deserve any of His compassion and goodness, He still loves us. He loves us so much and is so merciful that He sent His only Son to come into the world to redeem sinners by dying on the cross and paying the ultimate price for our sin. God loves us so much He made a way for us to be saved so we can spend eternity with Him. Proclaim with me the Lord’s greatness; let us praise His name together! (Psalm 34:3) How great is our God!
Lord, Your love is so overwhelming and wonderful. I could never thank You enough for your compassion, grace and mercy. You are awesome and perfect in every way and I praise Your holy name! Amen
Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.
Throughout the Bible there are verses that encourage us to be diligent workers and there are also verses that say we need to rest, even God rested on the seventh day. Whether you are physically, emotionally or spiritually exhausted and burdened Jesus is inviting you and encouraging you to come to Him to find rest, peace, comfort, happiness and salvation. Believe in Jesus Christ, trust in Him and He will give you rest for your body, mind for your soul.
Lord, thank You for the work that You have given us to do. Help us to be diligent and work whole heartily for You. Bless the work of our hands and help us to find rest in You. Amen
