Grace

Ephesians 2 8

 

Verse of the Day:  Ephesians 2:8

For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith; and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God.

 

Salvation is a gift graciously given from God because of His great love for us.  You cannot buy it, earn it, work for it or get it based on your own abilities. It is an undeserved gift you can only receive through faith. Through God’s plan to save us, Jesus paid for this gift when He died on the cross for our sins.  Everything you have, everything you are, and everything you do is all because of God’s saving grace.

Restorer

Psalm 30 11

 

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 30:11

You turned my wailing into dancing; you removed my sackcloth and clothed me with joy.

 

For whatever reason, be it sin, mourning, sickness or something else, if you are in a season of darkness return to God.  He is the restorer of light and goodness.  By his grace He will turn your sorrow into joy, your brokenness into beauty and your wailing into dancing.

Don’t Be Discouraged

2 Corinthians 4 16

 

Verse of the Day:  2 Corinthians 4:16

Therefore, we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day.

 

Life is sometimes hard and the world can be a mean and lonely place not to mention the pressure we put on ourselves to be perfect.  Don’t be discouraged, don’t give up, this world and everything in it is only temporary.  Turn to God and let your spirit be renewed by His love and grace. Remember, God gave you a spirit that does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline. (2 Timothy 1:7)

Hope for Today

Romans 15 13

Verse of the Day:  Romans 15:13

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.

 

Without hope we feel helpless, alone and powerless.  But our God is the source of all hope.   Hope for healing, hope for peace, hope for joy and hope for the future.  All hope comes from knowing, believing and trusting God. By His grace and by the power of the Holy Spirit, God has given us the precious gift of hope. If you feel hopeless, seek a relationship with the author of all hope, God Almighty.

Straighten Your Crown   

Hebrews 4 16

 

Verse of the Day:  Hebrews 4:16

Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.

 

We all have days when we wake up feeling like we just can’t face the day.  Don’t let that overwhelming feeling discourage you.  Take a deep breath, remind yourself that you are a daughter of the King and straighten your crown.   Come boldly to the throne of God to lay your burdens at his feet and receive His mercy and grace for today.
