Verse of the Day: Hebrews 4:16
Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.
We all have days when we wake up feeling like we just can’t face another day. Don’t let that overwhelming feeling discourage you. Take a deep breath, remind yourself that you are a daughter of the King and straighten your crown. Come boldly to the throne of God to lay your burdens at His feet and receive His mercy and grace for today. God is with you, God is for you and God loves you.
Verse of the Day: Deuteronomy 31:8
The LORD himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.
Everyone has days when they feel discouraged. You might be having a really bad day when nothing seems to go right and you just feel like giving up. Those are the kind of days when all you can do is turn to God and give it all to Him. When you do, He reminds you that no matter what you’re going through He is with you and He will never leave you. He will always be there to guide you, to strengthen you and to protect you. Trust in the Lord and He will give you the courage to keep on going.
Verse of the Day: James 1:12
Blessed is the one who perseveres under trial because, having stood the test, that person will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love him.
There will be trials, there will be tough times, but God is with you and if you don’t give up you will be blessed. Be patient in afflictions, keep believing and keep praying. It’s no surprise that we will face adversity Jesus said we will have troubles but to take heart because He has overcome the world. So when these troubles come stand firm in your faith and trust in the Lord. Stay strong, you are not alone, and it will all be worth it in the end for when that day comes you will receive the crown of life, which is a gift from God.
Verse of the Day: Isaiah 32:17
The fruit of that righteousness will be peace; its effect will be quietness and confidence forever.
God’s presence in our lives changes everything. When we submit to God’s will, He gives us a calmness and inner peace that nothing on the outside can take away. We’ll have a quiet confidence that no matter what happens we know God is in control and we know that God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose. (Romans 8:28)
Verse of the Day: Ecclesiastes 11:4
Those who watch the wind blow will never sow, and those who observe the clouds will never reap.
If you’re waiting for perfect conditions like the right time, the right people, the right job, the right “whatever” to start living your God given dreams (your purpose) you’ll never get started. Don’t be afraid, God is with you and He will equip you with every good thing you need to do His will. It’s okay to start small, at least you’ve started to sow and it’s okay to make mistakes, it shows you’re trying and not just “watching the wind blow”. Don’t wait for “perfect conditions”, start with what you know now and with what you have now. Let go of fear, step out in faith and trust God to make a way.
Verse of the Day: Isaiah 41:10
Fear not for I am with you; be not dismayed for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
God is telling you not to be afraid because He is with you. What better reassurance can you get? God Himself is saying that you shouldn’t be frightened because He is your God and He’s going to be with you to strengthen, help and defend you not because you are righteous but because He is righteous. Don’t let fear keep you from what God has planned for you instead, start relying on God’s promises to support, comfort and strengthen you and start being fearless.
Verse of the Day: Psalm 46:5
God is within her, she will not fall
As a child of God you need to know that He dwells in your heart and when God is in your heart you can face anything that comes your way. You no longer have to face anything alone because God is always with you. Put your hope and trust in God and in His mighty power to uphold you. He is a present help and you can turn to Him in all circumstances to let His grace and mercy lift you up. God is with you and will help you when you put Him first in your life. You can live with confidence knowing that He is always within you.
