Verse of the Day: 1 Peter 5:10
And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast.
At the beginning of this year many of us were in a good place and we were looking forward to seeing what the new year had in store for us. Little did we know that this would be one of the hardest times since the Great Depression. Many have lost their jobs, their homes and people they love. Some are struggling emotionally, physically and financially just to make it to tomorrow. We have had to trust in the Lord like never before. But praise God, we serve the God of restoration! By His grace, we have been called to be His children and we have hope for a future because our heavenly Father always has a plan to heal and restore His people.
Verse of the Day: Luke 5:20
And when he saw their faith, he said, “Man your sins are forgiven you.”
In Luke chapter 5 some men carried a paralyzed man to see Jesus for healing. When they couldn’t reach Him, because of the crowds, they didn’t give up and they went through the roof. When Jesus saw their faith He forgave the man’s sins and his body was healed. Had it not been for the faith of the friends the man may never have been healed. You may know someone who is going through something so difficult it’s beginning to weaken their faith. That’s where your own faith comes in to play. You can be the bridge to God by praying and interceding for your friends and family. You can stand in the gap by letting your faith carry them when they are weak.
Verse of the Day: Psalm 107:20
He sent out His Word and healed them, and delivered them from their destruction.
God’s Word will heal whatever is hurting and destroying you, but first, you must receive it. You have to let it penetrate your heart, meditate on it, hear it, read it, study it, memorize it and it will begin to fix whatever is broken in you.
