Your Rights vs. What is Right for You

1 corinthians 10 23

 Verse of the Day:  1 Corinthians 10:23

“I have the right to do anything,” you say—but not everything is beneficial. “I have the right to do anything”—but not everything is constructive.

You may be determined to demand your rights as a citizen of this country but it’s not always what’s best for you as a Christian. Just because you have the right to do something doesn’t necessarily mean it’s right for you. Though it may be lawful, it may not be beneficial to you as a Bible-believing follower of Christ. Do not let your rights become a stumbling block to others. Believers should waive what they have a right to when the peace and welfare of their fellow Christians require it (John Gill). Knowing the difference between your rights and what is right for you as a child of God comes with spiritual maturity and will help you to live according to God’s laws.

Straighten Your Crown

Hebrews 4 16

Verse of the Day:  Hebrews 4:16

Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.

We all have days when we wake up feeling like we just can’t face another day. Don’t let that overwhelming feeling discourage you. Take a deep breath, remind yourself that you are a daughter of the King and straighten your crown. Come boldly to the throne of God to lay your burdens at His feet and receive His mercy and grace for today. God is with you, God is for you and God loves you.

Teaching Children About God

Proverbs 22 6

Verse of the Day: Proverbs 22:6

Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.

One of the most important things we can ever do is to teach children how much God loves them. Knowing they are loved by God, the Creator, Himself will give them confidence to shine. It’s our responsibility to teach our children the ways of the Lord, to teach them what it means to be a child of God and to pray for and with them. It’s up to us to give them a strong foundation on which they can rely. Let’s be examples for the children in our lives and teach them what it is to know and love God and what it is to be loved by Him. If we don’t teach them to follow Christ the world will teach them not to.

God is Within You

Psalm 46 5

Verse of the Day: Psalm 46:5

God is within her, she will not fall

As a child of God you need to know that He dwells in your heart and when God is in your heart you can face anything that comes your way. You no longer have to face anything alone because God is always with you. Put your hope and trust in God and in His mighty power to uphold you. He is a present help and you can turn to Him in all circumstances to let His grace and mercy lift you up. God is with you and will help you when you put Him first in your life. You can live with confidence knowing that He is always within you.

Your Rights vs. What is Right for You

1 corinthians 10 23

 

Verse of the Day:  1 Corinthians 10:23

“I have the right to do anything,” you say—but not everything is beneficial. “I have the right to do anything”—but not everything is constructive.

 

Honestly, this is a hard lesson to learn for many, including myself. You may be determined to demand your rights as a citizen of this country but it’s not always what’s best for you as a Christian.  Just because you have the right to do something doesn’t necessarily mean it’s right for you.  Knowing the difference between your rights and what is right for you as a child of God comes with spiritual maturity.

Straighten Your Crown   

Hebrews 4 16

 

Verse of the Day:  Hebrews 4:16

We all have days when we wake up feeling like we just can’t face the day.  Don’t let that overwhelming feeling discourage you.  Take a deep breath, remind yourself that you are a daughter of the King and straighten your crown.   Come boldly to the throne of God to lay your burdens at his feet and receive His mercy and grace for today.

Greater Is He That Is In You

1 john 4 4 kjv

 

Verse of the Day:  1 John 4:4

Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.

 

We have been chosen and adopted by God as His own children.  His unshakeable power lives in us and His Word is written on our hearts as we experience His truth. Because God lives in us we are overcomers and by faith we have the victory over evil.

Children Are a Blessing

Psalm 127 3

 

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 127:3

Children are a blessing and a gift from the Lord.

 

Every child is a blessing and a gift from God, unique and special in their own way.  It is up to us to guide, protect and to teach them the ways of the Lord.  Inspire and encourage your children by being an example of what it is to be a child of God.  Pray for your children and ask God to bless them and don’t forget to thank the Lord for this special blessing.

He Sees and Hears You

Psalm 34 15

 

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 34:15

The eyes of the Lord are on the righteous, and his ears are attentive to their cry

 

As believers in Jesus we have been made righteous through Christ on Calvary and not by our own doing.  We have, therefore, been adopted into the family of God the Father. We can rest assured that He watches over and protects us and when we cry out to Him we know He hears us.
