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.

Finding the Good

Proverbs 11 27

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 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. Live a positive and optimistic life by trying to find the good in all people and in all situations. Appreciate what you have and stop comparing yourself to other people. If you’re always looking for the negative that’s exactly what you’ll find.

Rise and Shine

Isaiah 60 1.jpg

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.

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.

The Work of Our Hands

Psalm 90 17

 

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 90:17

May the favor of the Lord our God rest on us; establish the work of our hands for us — yes, establish the work of our hands.

 

Ask God to bless the work of your hands so that you may be fruitful and productive.  Ask Him to help you enjoy your work so you can see Him glorified in all aspects of your job.  And when your work is demanding, pray for strength and a good attitude.

Now Is the Right 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.

 

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.  Don’t put it off until it’s too late. Jesus is coming soon!
