Look to the Lord for Strength

Verse of the Day:  1 Chronicles 16:11          

Look to the Lord and his strength; seek his face always.     

No matter how many times you cry out to God for strength He will be there. He hears you every single time. Don’t give up, don’t stop seeking the Lord. Don’t let anything keep you from seeking His face. God will give you the strength you need to get through anything. No matter what you face He is by your side and He will never leave you. If your soul is weary, if you’re going through troubled waters, if you’re facing temptations, whatever trials you are going through pour your heart out to God because He promises not only to give you strength but to be your strength.           

God Can Turn It Around

Genesis 50 20

Verse of the Day:  Genesis 50:20

You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good, to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives.

This is one of my favorite Bible verses because it reminds me that no matter what the devil tries to use to harm us God can turn it around and it use it for good. God can use your past to help others and your deepest pain can be used to set your calling in motion. God has a plan and a purpose for your life so no matter you’ve been through, what’s been done to you or what you’ve done God can still use you for His purpose. Trust in God and don’t give up.

Rejoice, Pray, Give Thanks!

1 Thessalonians 5 16-18 (2)

Verse of the Day:  1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Jesus Christ.

We don’t always need to change our circumstances sometimes we just need to change the way we see them. No matter what you are going through keep rejoicing in the Lord, keep praying and keep giving thanks to God. Don’t give up on God because He’ll never give up on you.

My Deliverer

Psalm 34 19 2

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 34:19

The righteous person may have many troubles, but the Lord delivers him from them all.

Life can be hard and at times may even seem unfair. You will go through difficult times but don’t give up hope. Remember, the Lord has gotten you through tough times before and He will get you through them again. Keep your mind on the things above. Keep praying, cry out to God and be comforted in knowing that He hears you. Keep your focus on Him and He will get you through the troubles that come your way and in due time you will be delivered from them all. If not in this present life than surely in the hereafter where there will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain but only eternal happiness.

Don’t Lose Heart            

2 Corinthians 4 16 2

Verse of the Day:  2 Corinthians 4:16

Therefore, we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day.

Life is sometimes demanding and hard on us physically and emotionally. We get sick, we get tired and we get mentally exhausted. Don’t be discouraged by your burdens and afflictions. Don’t give up, this world and everything in it is only temporary including our physical bodies. Our physical limitations make us rely not on ourselves but on our sovereign God. Keep doing the work of the Lord. Don’t lose heart, He sees everything you do for His honor and glory. Trust in God and let your spirit be renewed by His love and grace.

Perseverance       

Hebrews 10 36 2

Verse of the Day:  Hebrews 10:36

You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what he has promised.

When times are tough, when you are struggling or when things in your life seem fruitless, be patient, stay strong and don’t give up. Keep on the path God has set you on in spite of difficulty, obstacles or discouragement. Don’t lose your confidence in God or in His promises, wait patiently on the Lord because He is always on time. Don’t give up, you only fail if you quit. Continue in the will of God, finish your race strong and you will receive what He has promised, eternal life.

Keep Praying and Singing

Acts 16 25

Verse of the Day:  Acts 16:25

About midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the other prisoners were listening to them.

Paul and Silas were in a pretty bad situation. They had been beaten and thrown into prison. They had every reason to be bitter and angry, but because of their love and faith in Jesus they chose to pray and sing to God despite their current circumstances. Whatever difficult situation you may find yourself in today, keep praying and singing to God. Keep praising God no matter what the circumstances. Keep praising Him until He gives you the victory.

Don’t Lose Heart        

Hebrews 12 3

Verse of the Day:  Hebrews 12:3

Consider him who endured such opposition from sinners, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.

Jesus is the Son of God, pure and holy, yet He suffered and died for us. Everything He went through was an example for us so that we too can continue what we have been called to do. What we go through now is nothing compared to the glory God will reveal to us later. (Romans 8:18) Your hardest times will often lead to the greatest moments in your life. Keep fighting the good fight, be strong in your faith and don’t lose heart. It will all be worth it in the end.
