God is Good to All

Psalm 145 9

 

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 145:9

The LORD is good to all; he has compassion on all he has made.

 

God is the essence of perfect goodness. He is kind, caring, compassionate, generous and merciful toward all who seek Him. There is not a single person God is not ready and willing to bless; not a single person who God does not want to see happy and not a single sinner God would not show mercy to.  Everything from God is good and all good things are from God. Turn to God, His goodness and love last forever.

Receive Your Blessing

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 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 with blessings.  Open wide and receive your blessing!

Too Many Blessing to Count

Psalm 40 5

 

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 40:5

Many, Lord my God, are the wonders you have done, the things you planned for us. None can compare with you; were I to speak and tell of your deeds, they would be too many to declare.

 

God is good all the time and He has wonderful blessings planned for you, including the gift of salvation. There is no way we could even begin to count all of God’s blessings. He is worthy to be praised for His goodness and mercy.

I’m Not Lucky, I’m Blessed

Numbers 6 24-26.jpg

 

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.

 

The Lord pours his blessings and grace on his people.  He alone is the reason for my blessings and 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.

Love Yourself

Mark 12 31.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Mark 12:31

The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no commandment greater than these.

 

Sometimes we forget the “as yourself” part of this verse. Many of us struggle with loving and taking care of ourselves, we even feel guilty for doing so. We put everyone else’s needs first but the truth is we can’t love anyone else if we don’t take care of our own health, mind, body and spirit.  Make self-care a priority and remember, you can’t pour out blessings from an empty cup.

Good Gifts from Your Heavenly Father

Matthew 7 11

 

Verse of the Day:  Matthew 7:11

So if you sinful people know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give good gifts to those who ask him. (NLT)

 

Doesn’t it make you feel wonderful to know you have given your children what they’ve asked for on their Christmas list? Now, think about how much more your heavenly Father also wants to give you good gifts. God loves you and it makes Him happy to bless you with the desires of your heart. God already knows what you need before you ask, if you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer according to His will.
