God Hears You

Verse of the Day: 1 John 5:14   

This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us.     

Pray with the full confidence that God hears you, He is faithful and He is a loving God. God hears all your prayers and He answers each one. Sometimes the answer is yes, sometimes the answer is no and sometimes the answer is not right now but in His timing. The key words here are “according to His will”.  Always pray “according to his will” asking that the Lord’s will be done, not yours, that His promises be fulfilled for He alone knows His plans for you. Pray by faith in the name of Jesus with humility and reverence because no matter what the answer is, you can be sure He has heard your prayer.

Lord, I humbly come before You to thank you for your goodness, love and mercy. Thank you for hearing my prayers and for answering each one according to Your will. May Your will be done in my life. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Don’t You Give Up

Verse of the Day:  1 Kings 18:43-44 

“Go and look toward the sea”, he told his servant. And he went up and looked. There is nothing there,” he said. The seventh time the servant reported, “A cloud as small as a man’s hand is rising from the sea.”           

Even when you don’t see God working on your behalf He’s working. Even when you don’t feel God working for your good, He’s working. Keep trusting God, keep having faith in God, keep believing, keep hoping, keep praising Him and keep waiting for His favor no matter how long it takes for your prayers to be answered. God sees you and He hears you so don’t you give up. Praise God while you wait on Him even if it takes seven times or seven hundred times.

Dear Lord, Thank You for always being with me, even when I don’t see or feel You near me, I know that You are with me. Help me to stay strong when I am weak, help me to have faith in Your promises while I wait and help me to keep going when I feel like giving up. I need You in every moment of every day and I trust in You Lord. Amen

God Knows You

Verse of the Day: Psalm 139:16        

Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be. Before you were ever born, God saw you and He knew all about you. He knew everything from your first day to your last. He still knows everything about you. He even knows every single hair on your head. He sees you, He hears you, He knows your thoughts and He knows your heart. He knows your past and He knows the plans He has for your future. More than anything God wants you to know how much He loves you and He wants you to know and love Him too. It’s up to you, to not only know of Him and of His works but, to seek to know Him personally.

Lord, I am so grateful for your amazing love and mercy. You know everything about me and yet you still love me. You know my heart Lord, help me to draw closer to you so that I may know you more fully.  Amen

Seek the Lord

Verse of the Day:   Jeremiah 29:13   

You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.           

A new year is the perfect time to start over. It’s a time of new beginnings, second, third, even ninety-ninth chances. It’s okay to start over, we serve a God of new beginnings. None of us are perfect but as long as you don’t completely give up, God will work with what you have right where you are. When you seek the Lord with a sincere heart you will find Him. God hears your prayers and knows your heart. God promises that if you humble yourself, pray, seek His face and turn from your sinful ways He will hear you. Make God a priority in the coming year by making time to read His Word and spending time with Him in prayer. God loves you and wants to have a personal relationship with you but it’s up to you to seek Him.

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.           

Morning Prayer

Psalm 5 3

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 5:3

In the morning, Lord, you hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before you and wait expectantly.

The most important thing you can do to start your day is to spend time with the Lord in prayer.  Thank Him for waking you up and giving you another day of life. Praise the Him for His goodness and His mercy that starts new every morning. Lay your requests and concerns at His feet. Invite Him into every part of your day. Be consistent and diligent with your prayers, always praying with the confidence that God hears you. Make time to pray every morning and ask God to give you the peace and guidance you need to go through your day.

Pray for God’s Will to Be Done

Matthew 6 10

Verse of the Day:  Matthew 6:10

Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.

If you’re not sure how to pray or what to pray for, start by praying for God’s will to be done in your life. Praying for God’s will to be done is an act of faith because we know and believe that God’s will is good and perfect and therefore, we trust in His plans and His will for us. Pray that your own will, heart and actions would conform to God’s will by making Him the center of your life. Don’t be intimidated by long, loud or eloquent prayers.  Prayer doesn’t have to be formal or full of big, fancy words it just has to be from your heart. Have a sincere conversation with God and pray knowing and believing that He hears 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.

God Hears You

Psalm 86 7

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 86:7

When I am in distress, I call to you, because you answer me.

In this world we will have troubles. They can be troubles we bring on ourselves by our own actions or they can be brought on from other people. Sometimes they’re from the devil who tempts us and schemes against us. It can be an illness or hardship beyond our control. They can be troubles that last for a day, for a while or for a season. The important thing to know is that when you have a relationship with God you can always call on Him and know that He hears you and answers you. God hears your every prayer and when you learn to trust in Him, He will give you peace. Even when you can’t find the right words to pray God hears your heart.
