Verse of the Day: Matthew 5:5
Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth
The world considers meekness to be a weakness. When they hear the word meek they automatically imagine someone who allows people to walk all over them, is subservient or a person who does not stand up for themselves and gives up their rights. As a human characteristic it is a negative trait. But Jesus was the perfect example of meekness. He had every right and the power to take Himself off the cross but He chose to submit to God’s will for the greater good. The kind of meekness the Bible talks about isn’t being weak, it’s the opposite, it’s being so strong that you are in control of your emotions and actions. The Biblical characteristic of meekness is to be submissive to God, obedient, righteous, teachable, patient, humble, and peaceful even in the face of adversity. God blesses the meek and promises that they will inherit the earth and enjoy peace and prosperity.
Verse of the Day: Psalm 128:1-2
Blessed are all who fear the Lord, who walk in obedience to him. You will eat the fruit of your labor; blessings and prosperity will be yours.
It doesn’t matter if you are rich, poor, old, young or what race you are blessings and prosperity come to all who fear the Lord. Reverence to God, submitting to His will and obedience to His Word are the keys to being blessed and prosperous. God wants you to enjoy the fruits of your labor, to be blessed and prosperous! If you walk in His ways all will be well with your soul while you live and even better, for all eternity.
Verse of the Day: Psalm 34:8
Taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the one who takes refuge in him.
I am personally inviting you to experience the infinite goodness of the Lord. He is perfect in every way, the author of all good things, everything about Him is good and He loves you. Turn to Him, put your hope in Him and put your trust in Him alone. He is the only one that can fill your heart with peace. You will never know what it’s like to have a relationship with the Lord until you make an effort to really seek and experience Him for yourself. A good place to start is by praying and reading the Word of God.
Verse of the Day: Ecclesiastes 3:12

Verse of the Day: Psalm 118:24
