God’s Ways

Psalm 119 15

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 119:15

I will meditate on your precepts, and contemplate your ways.

A precept is a command or a general rule intended to regulate behavior or thought.  Instead of focusing on your problems or things that upset, disappoint or annoy you think about the way God wants you to deal with them. Think about how He wants you to respond. Let God’s precepts direct you in the way you should go. God’s ways are pure and good and they are always better than our own. Keep God’s Word in your heart and let it guide your steps through life.

What Does the Lord Require?

Micah 6 8

Verse of the Day:  Micah 6:8

He has shown you, O mortal, what is good. And what does the LORD require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.

What does the Lord require? Obedience to His Word by faith. Treat others fairly and equally, oppressing no one. Behave in a morally righteous way, not self-righteous, but in accord with God’s laws and virtues. Be kind, merciful, compassionate and forgiving even to those who don’t deserve it. Be respectful, gentle and live modestly, not thinking too highly of yourself. Submit to God’s will and acknowledge Him in every part of your life, not just on Sunday but, walk with Him in every moment of every day. We all fall short sometimes, but God’s grace is bigger than our sins.

Spiritual Wisdom

James 3 17.jpg

Verse of the Day:  James 3:17

Wisdom that comes from heaven is pure; then peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere.

Spiritual wisdom comes from God and it gives you the desire to live a life that is obedient and respectful to God and His holiness no matter what trials you face. It helps us to see the best in people, to be patient and to forgive others and it also help us to step back in the interest of peace when appropriate. It allows us to be open to receiving good advice and godly counsel. It compels us to be merciful and compassionate toward all people leading us to do the good works God has already planned for us with a sincere and impartial heart. How do we get this spiritual wisdom? God reveals it through the Holy Spirit and through His Word to every believer in Christ who asks in faith.

 

Let Go, Let God

Psalm 46 10

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 46:10

Be still, and know that I am God

Often, we are tempted to try and work everything out for ourselves but what we really need to do is to just let go and give it all to God.  When you are struggling to make things work out the way you want them to just stop, be still, wait patiently without fear, abide in His Word and let God’s will be done. Acknowledge that He is God and He is in control. He knows you, He knows your troubles and He will make all things work for the good of those who love Him. (Romans 8:28) Surrender your need to control the situation and let God be in charge of your life, His ways are always better and He is always faithful to His Word and His promises.

Understanding God’s Word

Psalm 119 130 2

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 119:130

The unfolding of Your words gives light; it gives understanding to the simple.

If you read the Holy Bible in faith, studying the truth, asking God to give you understanding of what was, what is and what is to come – the Lord, by his grace, will enlighten your mind and soul. He will help you understand the scriptures, His plan for salvation and He will give you spiritual peace and comfort. God’s word gives understanding to all who earnestly seek Him and are willing to learn.

Worship in Spirit and in Truth

John 4 23

Verse of the Day:  John 4:23

But the time is coming—indeed it’s here now—when true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and in truth. The Father is looking for those who will worship him that way.

God is looking for people who will worship Him with all of their heart and soul. He doesn’t want people who are just going through the motions or performing ceremonies. That’s not all He wants, your worship must also be in truth.  In order to worship the truth, we must know the truth which is found in God’s Word. Truth comes from the certainty in knowing who God is and by having a personal relationship with Him. The more you know who God is the more genuine your worship becomes. As #knowingyou begin to worship God in spirit and in truth you will be transformed by His grace because worship changes everything!

Walking in God’s Word

Psalm 119 105

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 119:105

Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.

Navigating this world is no easy task.  At times you may feel like you’re lost or walking in the dark but God’s Word is here to guide you and to show you the way you should go.  The Bible is a light shining in the darkness. The more you know and study God’s Word, the more you can apply it to your daily life.  The more you apply it to your life, the clearer the path becomes.  Let God guide you through life with His Word.
