Wait for the Lord

Psalm 130 5

Verse of the Day: Psalm 130:5

I wait for the Lord, my whole being waits, and in his word I put my hope.

Wait for the Lord; wait for His presence, His salvation and deliverance. Wait with your mind, body and soul. Wait for His answers to prayers, for His guidance, for His promises to be fulfilled in His timing. Wait because His ways are perfect. Wait because He loves you and has a plan for you. Wait patiently, putting all of your hope in His promises. Wait for the Lord because His Words are right and true and His ways are better than anything you could ever imagine. Waiting doesn’t mean you do nothing while God is working for your good. While you wait you can praise Him, worship Him and wait with expectation.

You Are Precious in His Sight

Isaiah 43 4

Verse of the Day:  Isaiah 43:4

Since you are precious and honored in my sight, and because I love you, I will give people in exchange for you, nations in exchange for your life.

Are you seeing yourself the way God sees you? Here’s a little reminder for you in case you have forgotten. You are God’s own creation and God doesn’t make mistakes. You have worth, you are a jewel and you belong to God. You have been adopted into His own family, you are His child and an heir to His kingdom. God has given you gifts and talents to use for His purpose because He has a plan for you. He loves you so much He gave His Only Son so you could have eternal life. Stop worrying about the way the world sees you and start seeing yourself the way God sees you, as His precious daughter.

God’s Will Not Mine

Luke 22 41-42.jpg

Verse of the Day:  Luke 22:41-42

He withdrew about a stone’s throw beyond them, knelt down and prayed, “Father, if you are willing, take this cup from me; yet not my will, but yours be done.”

Jesus gave us the example of how to pray, especially when going through something so difficult and life changing. First, In Luke 22:41 it says He went a little farther leaving the disciples behind so He could be alone. Intense prayer needs privacy, sometimes it just needs to be you and God alone, no one else, no distractions. Second, He knelt down and prayed. Kneeling to God shows humility, respect and honor. Third, He prayed to God saying, “Father if you are willing, take this cup from me; yet not my will, but yours be done.” Jesus, knowing what was ahead asked His Father, if He was willing, to change the outcome that had already been set in motion. Then He relinquished His own will to the will of God. We too must voluntarily hand over our distress, our problems, our worries and our lives over to God and let His will be done. God has a purpose and a plan for your life and He knows everything from beginning to end. Trust in the Lord with all your heart and pray for His will to be done in your life.

God Can Turn It Around

Genesis 50 20.jpg

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.

Wait for the Lord; wait for His presence. Wait with your mind, body and soul.

Wait patiently, putting all of your hope in His promises. Wait for the Lord.

Living by Faith

galatians 2 20

 

Verse of the Day:  Galatians 2:20

I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. And the life that I now live in my body, I live by faith, indeed, by the faithfulness of God’s Son, who loved me and gave himself for me.

 

Are you living a life focused on yourself, a life without purpose or peace?  In order to get to where God wants you to be you have to leave your old life and your old ways in the past. Surrender your life to God and focus on the future He has planned for you. Christ now lives in you and you don’t have to live by your own power or strength anymore. Start living by faith in Jesus Christ who loves you so much He died on the cross for you.
