Verse of the Day: Psalm 73:26
My flesh and my heart may fail; but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.
We are not perfect, we make mistakes and we fall to temptations and tribulations. No matter how much we want to do better we sometimes fail, we sometimes let God and ourselves down. But we serve a loving God and no matter how many times we fall, He picks us up. He continues to love us because His love never fails. He loves us not because of who we are but because of who He is. Although we don’t have the strength to carry on ourselves, we have strength through God who is our ever present, never failing refuge for all eternity.
Verse of the Day: Psalm 63:4
I will praise you as long as I live, and in your name I will lift up my hands.
Praise God for who He is by focusing your thoughts on His wonderful characteristics and what they mean to you personally. God is good, forgiving, loving, merciful, full of grace, holy and so much more. Even on your darkest day God is worthy of all praise. Joyfully lift your hands toward your heavenly Father as you pray because He is worthy of all praise. The Lord is great and greatly to be praised! As long as you have breath in your lungs, praise God!
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 with a yes, no or wait. The key words here are “according to His will”. You must always pray “according to His will” and ask that His will be done, not yours, for He alone knows His plans for you. No matter what the answer is, know that He has heard your prayer.
