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, when they feel like giving up or when they just have a really bad day. Those are the 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’ll never leave you.
Verse of the Day: Matthew 18:20
For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.
What a blessing it is to be able to pray for and with your sisters in Christ. Calling upon a friend and ask them to pray in unity with you to collectively make your request known to the Father helps you to build stronger relationships with each other and with God. Get a prayer group going among your friends and reap the benefits of praying together.
Verse of the Day: 2 Timothy 4:17
But the Lord stood by me and gave me strength
Doing the will of God can at times be lonely road. Not everyone will understand or support what you are doing. That’s why it’s important to surround yourself with likeminded people. Even so, there may be times when you still feel alone and it may feel like everyone has deserted you. In these moments you must remember that you are not alone. The Lord is with you, He is on your side and He will give you the strength to carry out His plan.
Verse of the Day: Deuteronomy 4:29
But if from there you seek the Lord your God, you will find him if you seek him with all your heart and with all your soul.
God isn’t far from you, He’s always with you, you need only to seek Him with all of your heart and soul. He wants to have a relationship with you but He’s not going to force you. He wants you to seek Him, and the more you seek Him, the more you will find Him. The most important thing you can ever do isn’t found in the busyness of your life, it is found in the quiet times seeking God. This world is temporary and everything in it is temporary, but what God is offering you is eternal.
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 “whatever” to start living your God given dream 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 now with what you know now and with what you have now, tomorrow may never come.
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. Stay strong, you are not alone, and it will all be worth it in the end.
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 you, help you 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 and start being fearless.
