Verse of the Day: Deuteronomy 4:29
But if from there you seek the Lord your God, you will find him if you seek him with all your heart and with all your soul.
God isn’t far from you, He’s always with you, you need only to seek Him with all of your heart and soul. He wants to have a relationship with you but He’s not going to force you. He wants you to seek Him, and the more you seek Him, the more you will find Him. The most important thing you can ever do isn’t found in the busyness of your life, it is found in the quiet times seeking God. This world is temporary and everything in it is temporary, but what God is offering you is eternal.
Verse of the Day: Romans 10:17
So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
We know that God can speak to you through his word when you read the Bible, when you hear a sermon, and when you pray. But He can also speak to you through other believers, through music, nature, even social media. God can speak to you in so many ways if you would only surround yourself with the things of God and put yourself in a position to be receptive to His voice.
Verse of the Day: 1 John 5:14
This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us.
Pray with the full confidence that God hears you, He is faithful and He is a loving God. God hears all your prayers and He answers each one with a yes, no or wait. The key words here are “according to His will”. You must always pray “according to His will” and ask that His will be done, not yours, for He alone knows His plans for you. No matter what the answer is, know that He has heard your prayer.
Verse of the Day: Proverbs 1:5
The wise hear them and grow in wisdom; those with understanding gain guidance.
Solomon asked God to give him wisdom and understanding and it pleased the Lord, so He gave him wisdom and understanding beyond measure. The Book of Proverbs was written to guide people in how they should live their lives. Some say the Book of Proverbs doesn’t apply to today’s times, but it is as relevant now as it was then because God’s word is the same yesterday, today and forever. Learning is a life-long journey, even the wise can gain wisdom.
Verse of the Day: Psalm 61:2
From the end of the earth will I cry to thee, when my heart is overwhelmed; lead me to the rock that is higher than I.
There are times when we may feel far from God, when we feel alone, when our heart feels sad and overwhelmed. He is always there for you, He is in control and you can turn to Him with all your troubles. Cry out to the Lord and ask Him to strengthen your faith, for He alone is your rock and your salvation.
Verse of the Day: Psalm 130:5
I wait for the Lord, my whole being waits, and in his word I put my hope.
Wait for the Lord; wait for His presence. Wait with your mind, body and soul. Wait for His answers to prayers, for His guidance, for His promises to be fulfilled in His timing. Wait because His ways are perfect. Wait because He loves you and has a plan for you. Wait patiently, putting all of your hope in His promises. Wait for the Lord.
Verse of the Day: Colossians 4:5
Be wise in the way you act toward outsiders; make the most of every opportunity.
There is no doubt we all live very busy lives. We work, we have families to take care of, appointments to keep, people to see and things to do. It’s important that we give our best to the things we do. Whether we realize it or not, people are watching us to see if we practice what we preach. Always conduct yourself in a way that pleases God because you represent Him in everything you do. Let them see God in you and in everything you do.
