Verse of the Day: Romans 8:37
No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.
We may have confidence in knowing that no tribulation, suffering, persecution, absolutely nothing can separate us from the love of Christ. His love is not earned so it cannot be lost, it is undeserved and limitless. We are not just conquerors, we are more than conquerors, not just in some things but in all things through Jesus Christ!
Verse of the Day: Acts 20:24
However, I consider my life worth nothing to me; my only aim is to finish the race and complete the task the Lord Jesus has given me—the task of testifying to the good news of God’s grace.
God has given each of us different gifts to be used for His purpose. We should be content with what we’ve been given and use these gifts to the best of our ability. We each may have a different task but the goal is the same for all of us, to finish the race and to complete the task we’ve been assigned.
Verse of the Day: James 1:22
Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says.
If you are just listening to or reading the Word of God but not applying it to your life and expecting your life to change you’re fooling yourself. That would be like reading about a diet then eating junk food and expecting to lose weight. You have to apply it to your life, you have to change your habits and it has to be a way of life not just a Sunday event.
Verse of the Day: Proverbs 3:5
Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding.
There are going to be times when you say, “God, I don’t understand why this is happening.” That’s when you must learn to accept that you will not always understand everything God is doing. That’s when you just have to trust that God has a plan and that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose. Life is not always going to be easy but if you learn to trust God with all your heart you will have peace, joy and happiness in this life.
Verse of the Day: Romans 12:12
Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.
The Christian life is not always easy. Jesus said we will have troubles but we can have peace because He overcame the world (John 16:33). Be encouraged in knowing you can be joyful in the hope you have in Christ, patient during troubled times and faithful in your prayer life regardless of what is going on around you.
Verse of the Day: 1 John 4:16
And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them.
If your first thought of the day is “God loves me” it will change the way you react to things that happen throughout your day. No matter what happens tell yourself, “It’s going to be okay, God loves me”. You can rely on God’s love for you and His strength will get you through the most difficult days if only you would trust in His love for you.
Verse of the Day: Luke 6:32
If you love those who love you, what credit is that to you? Even sinners love those who love them.
It’s easy to love someone who loves you and is good to you. The challenge then is to love the unlovable and those who have been forgotten by society. Start seeing them the way God sees them, love them, do good for them and pray for them.
