Praise the Lord at All Times

Psalm 34 1.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 34:1

I will bless the LORD at all times; His praise will always be on my lips.

 

No matter what is going on in your life praise the Lord!  In good times praise the Lord, in difficult times praise the Lord.  At all times praise the Lord because praise invites God’s presence into your situation. Praise gets the focus off of you and onto God and when you focus on God it changes your heart and increases your faith. When something is troubling you start praising God.

Courage for Today 

1 Samuel 17 37

 

Verse of the Day:  1 Samuel 17:37

The Lord who rescued me from the paw of the lion and the paw of the bear will rescue me from the hand of this Philistine.” Saul said to David, “Go, and the Lord be with you.”

 

If you’re going through a difficult time remember that you can have courage in your current situation because you know God has brought you through difficult times before and He’ll do it again. God was with you then and He’s with you now.

Set the Example

Titus 2 7-8.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Titus 2:7-8

In everything set them an example by doing what is good. In your teaching show integrity, seriousness and soundness of speech that cannot be condemned, so that those who oppose you may be ashamed because they have nothing bad to say about us.

 

It’s not enough to just deliver the message and teachings, you have to live it too.   It’s easy to say one thing and do another but if you really love God you will strive to set the example for others. Live a life of integrity and uprightness during good times and in difficult times. Let your light shine for others to see so that they may be moved to know, love and serve God.

Intercession by the Holy Spirit

1 11-10 1

 

Verse of the Day:   Romans 8:26

In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans.

 

At times we come before the Lord feeling defeated to the point where words cannot convey what we want to say to Him. Tears stream down our face as we humble ourselves before the almighty God. It’s okay if we don’t have the right words, the Holy Spirit will intercede for us and step in to interpret what is in our heart.
