For God’s Purpose

Verse of the Day:  Romans 6:13       

Do not offer any part of yourself to sin as an instrument of wickedness, but rather offer yourselves to God as those who have been brought from death to life; and offer every part of yourself to him as an instrument of righteousness.

When you are born again, you have a new identity in Christ and you are no longer a slave to sin. You no longer have to give in to your sinful nature. You are no longer under the command of satan for sin, but under the command of God for righteousness. (Matthew Poole) Because you have been set free by the precious blood of Christ, you are now able to surrender your mind, body and soul to God. Devote yourself to righteousness and offer yourself to God in cheerful obedience as an instrument of faith, joy, hope, peace and love to be used for His purpose.

Lord, I am so grateful for the gift of salvation. I have been born again and am no longer a slave to sin. I give myself to You so You can use me for Your divine purpose. In Jesus’ Name, Amen

Trust in the Lord with All Your Heart

Proverbs 3 5 b

 

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.
