Verse of the Day: Psalm 9:1
I will give thanks to you, LORD, with all my heart; I will tell of all your wonderful deeds.
Thanksgiving Day is quickly approaching and I thought it would be nice to share some of the things I am thankful for. This year our family went through the one of the hardest seasons we’ve had to go through together. In July, my husband was diagnosed with stage II colon cancer. Because of God’s great mercy, the cancer was found early enough for the tumor to be removed. He recovered from the surgery and did not have to have chemo therapy. For that alone, we are so grateful to God for his healing. But the story doesn’t end there. My husband is the sole supporter for our family and with him being unable to work during the recovery process we came very close to losing everything we have. But God made a way where there was no way. The Lord put it in the heart of many to help us along the way. Every time I thought we were at the end of the road the Lord opened up a new door. I was repeatedly reminded of God’s goodness as He kept showing us time after time that if we trust in Him, He will make a way. Through it all, my faith has been made stronger and I am so thankful for my relationship with the Lord and for His amazing grace. My heart is filled with gratitude for all the things He has done for us. He has renewed my spirit and because of this I am so thankful and like David, I want to share His wonderful deeds and goodness with the world.
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.
Verse of the Day: Jeremiah 31:3
The Lord appeared to us in the past, saying: “I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with unfailing kindness.
God assures His people that His love was established since the beginning of time. It is not a temporary love but one that continues from generation to generation. It is confirmed daily as He forgives, protects, provides, heals and demonstrates His continued grace, mercy and power in your life. God’s magnificent love is sovereign, unchangeable everlasting and nothing can separate us from His love for us.
Verse of the Day: Genesis 16:13
She gave this name to the Lord who spoke to her: “You are the God who sees me,” for she said, “I have now seen the One who sees me.”
God sees you. He knows your heart and He knows your pain. You are not alone. He loves you more than you could ever imagine. Trust God and give Him your brokenness. Allow Him to heal your heart and lead you to restoration.
Verse of the Day: Luke 13:12
When Jesus saw her, he called her forward and said to her, “Woman, you
are set free from your infirmity.”
Jesus already knows your condition and He is calling you because He has
compassion for you. If you need healing
come to Jesus, He can heal your mind, body and soul. The first step in healing
is coming to Jesus, the second is faith. He can set you free from whatever
chains are holding you down.
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.
