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: 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: 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.
Verse of the Day: 2 Corinthians 5:17
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!
Leave the past behind you, don’t look back, keep looking forward to what God has planned for you. It’s a new year and you are a new creation in Christ. God’s mercies are new every morning and it’s never too late to start over. Make this a year of faith and courage focused on God!
