Move Forward by Faith

Philippians 3 13

Verse of the Day:  Philippians 3:13

Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead.

Would haves, could haves and should haves are holding you back. None of us are perfect, we have regrets and have things we wish we would have done differently but if you want to move forward you have to let go of the past. Your sins have been forgiven and forgotten by the grace of God. If you want to move forward in life you have to stop living in the past. Your soul can heal, from whatever happened to you or the choices you made, when you give it to God. Move forward by faith and don’t let the hurt and pain of the past keep you from the joy God has planned for your future.

Let Go, Let God

Psalm 46 10

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 46:10

Be still, and know that I am God

Often, we are tempted to try and work everything out for ourselves but what we really need to do is to just let go and give it all to God.  When you are struggling to make things work out the way you want them to just stop, be still, wait patiently without fear, abide in His Word and let God’s will be done. Acknowledge that He is God and He is in control. He knows you, He knows your troubles and He will make all things work for the good of those who love Him. (Romans 8:28) Surrender your need to control the situation and let God be in charge of your life, His ways are always better and He is always faithful to His Word and His promises.

The Lifter of My Head

Psalm 3 3

 

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 3:3

But you, O Lord, are a shield about me, my glory, and the lifter of my head.

 

Thanksgiving Day is over and not everyone has or was able to spend time with family and friends.  For some, the holidays can be lonely and even a sad time. I sometimes feel it too. I miss loved ones that have passed and those who can’t be near me. But we are not alone, God is with us in every moment of every day. If we focus on the Lord, His goodness and our blessings He will get us through it.

A Change of Heart and Spirit

Psalm 51 10 (2).jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 51:10

Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me.

 

Even David, a man after God’s heart sinned against God, but he recognized that he needed a profound change of heart and spirit and he knew he could not make this change on his own. No matter how much you try to change on your own it’s not going to happen until you give it to God.  God is the creator of your heart and the only one who can renew your soul and spirit.

 

Let Go, Let God

Psalm 46 10.jpg

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 46:10

He says, “Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.”

 

Often, we are so tempted to try and work everything out for ourselves but what we really need to do is to just let go and give it all to God.  When you are struggling to make things work out the way you want them to that’s when it’s time to stop, be still, abide in His Word and let God’s will be done. Surrender your need to control the situation and let God be in charge of your life, His ways are always better.
