Verse of the Day: Psalm 63:1
You, God, are my God, earnestly I seek you; I thirst for you, my whole being longs for you, in a dry and parched land where there is no water.
If you really want to have a closer relationship with God seek him by faith with a sincere heart and mind. You must turn from evil, confess your sins and be obedient to his Word. Make spending time with him a priority over everything else. Humble yourself before him and worship him with all of your heart and you will surely find him.
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. 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.
Verse of the Day: Isaiah 43:4
Because you are precious in my eyes, you are honored, and I love you.
Are you seeing yourself the way God sees you? You are God’s own creation and we know that He 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.
Verse of the Day: 1 Thessalonians 1:4
We know dear brothers and sisters, that God loves you and has chosen you to be His own people.
Live with confidence and walk with your head held high knowing that God loves you and has chosen you to be His own. You belong to the Father because the Father chose you. It wasn’t by accident or a mistake, it was intentional. How wonderful is that? To know that God Himself chose you should give you the faith you need to follow Jesus wholeheartedly.
Verse of the Day: Lamentations 3:22-23
It is of the Lord’s mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.
Tomorrow is the first day of a new year, it’s a chance for a new beginning. Put the past behind you and start this new year with your focus on God. He loves you, He is merciful and His love and compassion for you never fails. Trust in the Lord with all your heart and see that He is good.
Verse of the Day: Isaiah 40:31
But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.
As 2018 comes to a close we can thank God for seeing us through another year. Though we may have had struggles we made it through them with the help of the Lord. The new year, 2019, will soon be here and it’s a time for new beginnings. Trust in the Lord to renew your strength and refresh your spirit, remember you are more than conquerors through God who loves you and with God, all things are possible.
