Hear and Obey

Luke 11 28.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Luke 11:28

He replied, “Blessed rather are those who hear the word of God and obey it.”

 

It’s not enough just to hear the Word of God, you must obey it.  Let the Word of God settle into your heart, mind and soul.  Love the Word, study the Word, hear the Word, obey the Word and it will be a blessing and a light unto your path.

Heads or Tails?

Deuteronomy 28 13

 

Verse of the Day:  Deuteronomy 28:13

The Lord will make you the head, not the tail. If you pay attention to the commands of the Lord your God that I give you this day and carefully follow them, you will always be at the top, never at the bottom.

 

God wants to bless you. He wants you to be successful and fruitful. Deuteronomy 28:13 says that “IF” you choose to be obedient to His Word, He will bless you and you will always be at the top and never at the bottom.  God will never force you to do anything and He always leaves the choice up to you. Do you want to be the head or the tail, at the top or at the bottom? Choose obedience and favor over disobedience and condemnation.

The Never Changing Word of God

Matthew 24 35.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Matthew 24:35

Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away.

 

We live in an ever changing world and change is inevitable for better or worse. There is a saying some people think comes from the Bible but it doesn’t: “This too shall pass”. It’s an adage reflecting on the temporary nature, or ephemerality, of the human condition. (Wikipedia) I’m sure it has helped some people get through tough times, but there is something even better, something you can always count on, the never changing Word of God. It was true yesterday, it’s true today and it will be true forever.

Morning Rituals

Psalm 143 8

 

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 143:8

Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love, for I have put my trust in you.  Show me the way I should go, for to you I entrust my life.

 

As soon as I open my eyes and wake up each morning there are a two things that cross my mind:  God and coffee.  I’ve made it a habit to start my day with prayer, God’s Word and coffee and have come to depend on them to get me through the day. If you want a closer relationship with God get into the habit of praying and reading the Bible daily. All you need is a little bit of coffee and a whole lot of Jesus.

You Are Wonderfully Made

Psalm 139 14.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 139:14

I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.

 

If you’ve ever felt insecure for any reason and most of us have, you can rest assured that you are God’s own masterpiece. Everything God makes is wonderful including you. Praise God because his Word is true and you are fearfully and wonderfully made by the Creator of the heavens and the earth. Start seeing yourself the way God sees you, his wonderful creation.

Grow in Wisdom

Proverbs 1 5

 

Verse of the Day:  Proverbs 1:5

The wise hear them and grow in wisdom; those with understanding gain guidance.

 

Solomon asked God to give him wisdom and understanding and it pleased the Lord, so He gave him wisdom and understanding beyond measure. The Book of Proverbs was written to guide people in how they should live their lives.  Some say the Book of Proverbs doesn’t apply to today’s times, but it is as relevant now as it was then because God’s word is the same yesterday, today and forever.   Learning is a life-long journey, even the wise can gain wisdom.
