Hope

Jeremiah 17 7

Verse of the Day:  Jeremiah 17:7

Blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD, and whose hope is the LORD.

Hope is confidence in God’s love, His promises and in His Word. Hope is the anticipation of drawing closer to God. Hope is the optimism you have in knowing that no matter what may come God will get you through it. Hope is the assurance you have in knowing that with God all things are possible. Hope is the confidence you have in the Savior and the expectation of spending eternity with our heavenly Father. Hope is a blessing from God and when you put your hope in Him you won’t be disappointed.

Grace    

Ephesians 2 8

Verse of the Day:  Ephesians 2:8

For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith; and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God.

Salvation is a gift graciously given from God because of His great and eternal love for us. You cannot buy it, earn it, work for it or get it based on your own abilities. It is the free, undeserved goodness and favor of God and it is a gift you can only receive by faith. Through God’s plan and His covenant of grace, Jesus paid for this gift when He died on the cross for our sins. As believers, everything we have, everything we are and everything we do is all because of God’s saving, forgiving and redeeming grace that blesses us all.

Happy Father’s Day

Give the Impossible to God

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 84:12

Lord Almighty, blessed is the one who trusts in you.

As women of God, we do our best to take care of our families to the best of our ability and we do as much as humanly possible. There are some things that are out of our control and for us, they are impossible. Those are the things we need to give to God. Through prayer, supplication and faith put your trust in the Lord Almighty who deals in making the impossible, possible. Do the possible and trust God for the impossible.

Happy Mother’s Day

Mother's Day - Proverbs 31 28

Verse of the Day:  Proverbs 31:28

Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her.

If you are blessed to have your mother in your life, honor her as the Lord commands. Pray for her and ask God to bless and protect her always. Be devoted and respectful, affectionate and loving for she won’t always be here. If there are grievances between you, ask God to help you forgive each other. If you are blessed to be a mother, pray that you would be a good example for your children and that they would honor you in the same way you have honored your own mother.

Receive Your Blessing

Psalm 81 10 2

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 81:10

I am the Lord your God, who brought you up out of Egypt. Open wide your mouth and I will fill it.

God is the same yesterday, today, and forever. Long ago He brought the Hebrews out of Egypt and out of bondage and He has done the same thing for you. He has brought you out of your bondage of sin. Now open your mouth wide with praise and thanksgiving for your deliverer. Pray with boldness and confidence in your God asking Him for what you need and He will bless you according to your faith. If you want to receive your blessing you have to trust and believe that the Lord is able to fill your cup, and not just fill your cup but overflow it. Open wide and receive your blessing!

Heads or Tails?

Deuteronomy 28 13

Verse of the Day:  Deuteronomy 28:13

The Lord will make you the head, not the tail. If you pay attention to the commands of the Lord your God that I give you this day and carefully follow them, you will always be at the top, never at the bottom.

God wants to bless you. He wants you to be successful and fruitful. Deuteronomy 28:13 says that “IF” you choose to be obedient to His Word, He will bless you and you will always be at the top and never at the bottom. God will never force you to do anything and He always leaves the choice up to you. Do you want to be the head or the tail, at the top or at the bottom? The decision is yours, you have a choice. Choose obedience to God’s commands and find favor instead of choosing disobedience and condemnation.

Generosity and Compassion

Proverbs 22 9

Verse of the Day:  Proverbs 22:9

The generous will themselves be blessed, for they share their food with the poor.

God is generous with us and He expects us to be generous with others. We serve a compassionate God and when we give ourselves to Him, He creates a compassionate heart in us. The awesome thing is that when we give to others from our heart God blesses us even more.  Not only does He bless us with earthly blessing but also with spiritual blessings. Be generous to those in need and do everything in love. No matter how much we give we can never out give God.

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.
