Now Is the Time

2 Corinthians 6:2

Verse of the Day:  2 Corinthians 6:2 

For he says, “In the time of my favor I heard you, and in the day of salvation I helped you.” I tell you, now is the time of God’s favor, now is the day of salvation.   

Jesus came to save the world at the right time, a time that was preordained by God. God sent His only Son to pay the price for ours sins and to make a way for us to be saved. From that day up to the second coming of Christ is the time for salvation. That means we are currently living in the day of salvation and have the opportunity right now to be saved. Now is the right time to give your life to God, now is the right time to heed His call, today is the right time to be saved. We don’t know the exact day when Jesus is coming for His people but He’s is coming soon. We don’t know what tomorrow brings so don’t put off your salvation until it’s too late.

Finding the Good

Verse of the Day:  Proverbs 11:27    

Whoever seeks good finds favor, but evil comes to one who searches for it.        

Putting God first in everything you do and seeking the kingdom of God leads to a life of favor. Pursuing what is good and doing good for others will put you in a position of favor from both God and people. When you look for trouble, trouble will find you. When you try to hurt others, it will surely come back to you. If you’re always looking for the negative that’s exactly what you’ll find. Instead, live a positive and optimistic life by trying to find the good in all people and making the best of things in all situations.

Rise and Shine

Verse of the Day:  Isaiah 60:1           

Arise and shine for your light has come and the glory of the Lord rises upon you.       

Rise and let God’s grace lift you up from whatever darkness is holding you down. Jesus is the light of the world and He came to save the lost and offer you hope and a future. Surrender your heart to God so He may pour His favor out on you. Shine so others may see God through you by honoring Him not only with your words but by the way you live your life. Give God the glory and He will give you the victory.

Joy Comes in the Morning         

Psalm 30 5 (2)

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 30:5

For his anger lasts only a moment, but his favor lasts a lifetime; weeping may stay for the night, but rejoicing comes in the morning.

As we go through life there will be times when, for whatever reason, we will encounter difficulties, pain or sorrow. Be comforted in knowing that no matter what you may be going through it’s only for a night (a season), it will not last forever. The mercies of God are new every morning and you may be weeping now but joy will come soon. Things may seem dark and hopeless now but with the dawn of a new day the sun rises once again and light breaks through the darkness. Hope is on the horizon. If you woke up this morning that means you’re alive and breathing. You have something to be thankful for so keep praising the Lord.

I’m Not Lucky, I’m Blessed

Numbers 6 24-26

Verse of the Day:  Numbers 6:24-26

The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make his face shine on you and be gracious to you; the Lord turn his face toward you and give you peace.

Don’t waste your time on lucky charms, four leaf clovers or any other superstitions. Instead, spend time in prayer with the living God who hears your prayers. Thank God for all your blessing for every good and perfect gift comes from above. The Lord pours His blessings and grace on His people. He, and He alone is the reason for your blessings and peace. May the Lord keep you in His hands and let His blessing surround you with His love. Let His righteousness shine on you and His mercy and grace rain upon you. May He show you favor all the days of your life in Jesus name.

Don’t You Give Up

1 Kings 18 43-44

Verse of the Day: 1 Kings 18:43-44

“Go and look toward the sea”, he told his servant. And he went up and looked. There is nothing there,” he said. The seventh time the servant reported, “A cloud as small as a man’s hand is rising from the sea.”

Even when you don’t see God working on your behalf He’s working. Even when you don’t feel God working for your good, He’s working. Keep trusting God, keep having faith in God, keep believing, keep hoping, keep praising Him and keep waiting for His favor no matter how long it takes for your prayers to be answered. God sees you and He hears you so don’t you give up. Praise God while you wait on Him even if it takes seven times or seven hundred times.

Now Is the Right Time to Be Saved

2 Corinthians 6 2

Verse of the Day:  2 Corinthians 6:2

For he says, “In the time of my favor I heard you, and in the day of salvation I helped you.” I tell you, now is the time of God’s favor, now is the day of salvation.

Jesus came to save the world at the right time, a time that was preordained by God. When Jesus was in the garden at Gethsemane and cried out to God the Father and when He was on the cross crying out, God heard Him and answered His prayers. God’s will was done and on the third day Jesus was delivered from death and rose from the grave. God sent His only Son to pay the price for ours sins and to make a way for us to be saved. From that day to the second coming of Christ is the time for salvation. That means we are currently living in the day of salvation. NOW is the right time to give your life to God, now is the right time to heed His call, today is the right time to be saved. Jesus is coming soon.  Don’t put off your salvation until it’s too late.

Rise and Shine

Rise and let God’s grace lift you up from whatever darkness is holding you down. Jesus is the light of the world and He came to save the lost and offer you hope and a future.

Deep Waters

Isaiah 43 2

 

Verse of the Day:  Isaiah 43:2

When you go through deep waters, I will be with you. When you go through rivers of difficulty, you will not drown. When you walk through the fire of oppression, you will not be burned up; the flames will not consume you.

 

In the midst of the deep waters of life all believers can take comfort in God’s favor and love for His people. You don’t have to be afraid of difficulties that lie ahead because God is for you. And if God is for you, who can be against you? Do not fear, do not let your heart be anxious instead be encouraged because God is with you. If you let God fight your battle He will see you through and you will not be overcome. He hasn’t brought you this far to give up on you now.
