Walk in the Light

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 18:28         

You, Lord, keep my lamp burning; my God turns my darkness into light.           

It’s not easy living in a world full of hate, violence and darkness. But when you trust in the Lord with all your heart His light shines down on you because He is the light of the world. Out of His love, grace and mercy He alone will give you the strength and faith you need to keep walking in the light and you will not be overcome. Be faithful to God and you will see that He is everything He promises to be.

Let God Lead You

Proverbs 20 24

 Verse of the Day:  Proverbs 20:24

A person’s steps are directed by the Lord.  How then can anyone understand their own way?

Life is a journey. God is at work in your life and is directing your steps for His purpose. He will lead you to eternal life with Him if only you would let go of your need to follow your own path. It’s impossible for man to know what lies ahead. Only God knows and it won’t always be easy because there is a time for every purpose under heaven but don’t worry, Jesus is the way and the truth and the life. Trust in the Lord with all your heart and let Him lead you in the direction you should go. You may be going through a hard time right now but if you are faithful and obedient even when you don’t understand where He’s leading you, eventually, you will see the fruits of your labor.

Hold On to Hope

Hebrews 10 23 2

Verse of the Day: Hebrews 10:23

Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful.

It’s easy to have faith in God when everything is going our way and when things are good. But when difficult times come and our faith is being stretched we can’t give up hope. As God’s children we need to hold on to the hope of God’s promises knowing that He is always faithful. The promises of God are exceedingly great and He fulfills each one in His own timing. God never changes His mind, He never forgets and His Word is true for all eternity. God will never lie, deceive or mislead you. Even if it feels like He has overlooked you or if He feels far away, have faith and remember He is always with you and He has never ever failed in any of His promises. Keep hoping, keep believing and keep trusting God.

Same Goal

Acts 20 24

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 pleased with what we’ve been given and use these gifts to the best of our ability. No matter what happens in the world around us we cannot let it shake our faith, become fearful or allow it to change our purpose. We are to remain faithful to the very end in testifying to the grace, love, and mercy of God and the salvation He offers to all people. We each may have a different gift and a different task but the goal is the same for all of us, to use our gifts, to finish the race and to complete the task we’ve been assigned by God.

Joyful – Patient – Faithful

Romans 12 12

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). We can be joyful in the hope we have in Jesus Christ because we have salvation and the hope of being with the Lord forever in heaven. We can be patient during troubled times because we know our faith is being made stronger while we rely fully on God for healing, comfort, provisions and peace. Be faithful in your prayer life regardless of what is happening in the world and especially in times of tribulation. Don’t be discouraged by what is happening around you instead take every concern, every fear and every doubt straight to the throne of God.

Love Requires Action

1 John 3 18

Verse of the Day: 1 John 3:18

Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth.

When it comes to marriage let’s not just talk about love, let’s show our love with actions. Throughout the Bible God shows us that love is an action not just a word. Two of the greatest acts of love in the Bible are when God gave His only Son and Jesus laid down His own life for us. We can never out love God but we can do our best to show the love God shows us to our husband or wife. God is our example by being caring, compassionate, forgiving, merciful, patient, faithful and so much more. Let’s not love with words but with action.

God’s Timing

Habakkuk 2 3

Verse of the Day:  Habakkuk 2:3

For still the vision awaits its appointed time; it hastens to the end; it will not lie, if it seems slow, wait for it; it will surely come; it will not delay.

We need to learn patience while we stay persistent in prayer, never giving up, all the while trusting in God and in His timing.  Though we may not know the exact time God has already determined we do know that God keeps His promises. We cannot rush Him, but we can be sure He will not disappoint and while we wait on Him we must remain faithful.  God’s timing is perfect, never late and always on time.
