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.

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.

Have a Blessed Sunday!

Psalm 84 4

Verse of the Day: Psalm 84:4

Blessed are those who dwell in your house; they are ever praising you.

What a blessing it is to be in the house of the Lord enjoying the presence of the one true living God. It is a privilege and an honor to offer our praises to our Lord and Savior. The house of the Lord is also a place where we can go to be refreshed, revived and renewed. How truly blessed we are to enter His house to offer our praise, worship and give thanks.

Envy Rots the Bones

Proverbs 14 30

Verse of the Day:  Proverbs 14:30

A heart at peace gives life to the body, but envy rots the bones.

When you have a real relationship with God, He changes your heart.  You start to feel freed from anger, worry and envy. You have peace in your heart and a hope that makes you joyful. But a heart that envies the happiness, prosperity and success of others exhausts the body and soul.  Don’t let envy steal your peace and joy, don’t let it affect your spirit or your health. Count your own blessings and be happy for the blessings of others. Trust in the Lord, what is meant for you won’t pass you by.

Keep On Keeping On

James 1 12 2

Verse of the Day:  James 1:12

Blessed is the one who perseveres under trial because, having stood the test, that person will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love him.

There will be trials, there will be tough times, but God is with you and if you don’t give up you will be blessed. Be patient in afflictions, keep believing and keep praying. It’s no surprise that we will face adversity Jesus said we will have troubles but to take heart because He has overcome the world. So when these troubles come stand firm in your faith and trust in the Lord. Stay strong, you are not alone, and it will all be worth it in the end for when that day comes you will receive the crown of life, which is a gift from God.
