Verse of the Day: James 4:8
Draw near to God and he will draw near to you.
We all need God in our lives, but how do you “draw near to God”? You draw near to Him by faith, repentance and obedience. Study the Word of God to learn who He really is. Seek Him with all your heart through prayer, fasting, praise and worship for He is worthy. God is waiting for you to take the first step by inviting Him into every part of your life. He loves you more than you can ever imagine and when you draw near to Him, He will draw near to you with His love, grace and mercy.
Verse of the Day: Hebrews 4:12
For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.
The Bible, which is the Word of God, isn’t some old irrelevant book of stories. It is alive and active today and forever. If you begin to read God’s Word daily, I promise, it will start to change your life. Ask God to reveal His Word to you. You’ll see how much He really loves you, His promises and His will for your life. Whatever you are going through the answer is found in God’s Word because it contains infinite wisdom from the Lord. Use it to guide you through life, to convict you when you need correction and to nourish your soul every day.
Verse of the Day: Psalm 34:8
Taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the one who takes refuge in him.
I am personally inviting you to experience the infinite goodness of the Lord. He is perfect in every way, the author of all good things, everything about Him is good and He loves you. Turn to Him, put your hope in Him and put your trust in Him alone. He is the only one that can fill your heart with peace. You will never know what it’s like to have a relationship with the Lord until you make an effort to really seek and experience Him for yourself. A good place to start is by praying and reading the Word of God.
Verse of the Day: Ecclesiastes 3:1
There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens.
Everything has a time and a season. There will be good times, hard times, growing times, quiet times, every kind of season you can imagine. The most important thing you need to know is that you never have to go through a season alone. God is with you in every season and He loves you more than you will ever know.
Verse of the Day: Psalm 31:14
But I trust in you, Lord; I say, “You are my God.”
In the worst of times you can trust in God to be with you. You can trust that He is on the throne ready to protect and defend you. By faith, leave all your troubles at the feet of the Creator. He is your God and in Him you may trust no matter what trials befall you. Turn to God because He is merciful and He loves you more than anyone ever can.
Verse of the Day: Proverbs 3:5
Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding.
We won’t always know the answer to why we are going through something or why things are turning out the way they are, we just need to trust the one who does. God knows everything from the beginning to the end. He knew you before you were born and He knows the plans He has for your future. Trust in the Lord with all your heart, surrender to His will and know that He loves you and everything He does is out of love for you.
Verse of the Day: Psalm 43:5
Why, my soul, are you downcast? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior and my God.
Life is not always sunshine and flowers. There are days when bad things happen, days when sadness creeps in and there are days when we just feel lonely. In these times, you need to lift your head toward God and give praise to your Savior. God loves you more than you will ever know. Thank Him for all the good in your life. Put your hope in God and rely on Him to get you through even the darkest of days.
