Give God the Glory!

Psalm 63 3

Verse of the Day: Psalm 63:3

Because your love is better than life, my lips will glorify you.

Our worst day with God is better than our best day without Him. Our life, health, job, riches, friends and family and everything else are meaningless without the love of God. Everything here on earth is temporary but God’s love for us is forever and nothing can ever separate us from His love. We have so much to be grateful for and when we begin to glorify God for all He has done for us and count our blessings we see that His love is better than life itself.

A Heart at Peace

Proverbs 14 30

 

Verse of the Day:  Proverbs 14:30

A heart at peace gives life to the body, but envy rots the bones.

 

When you have a real relationship with God, He changes your heart.  You start to feel freed from anger, worry and envy.  You have peace in your heart and a hope that makes you joyful.  But a heart that envies the happiness, prosperity and success of others exhausts the body and soul.  Don’t let envy steal your peace and joy, don’t let it affect your spirit or your health. Trust in the Lord, what is meant for you won’t pass you by.

Love Yourself

Mark 12 31.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Mark 12:31

The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no commandment greater than these.

 

Sometimes we forget the “as yourself” part of this verse. Many of us struggle with loving and taking care of ourselves, we even feel guilty for doing so. We put everyone else’s needs first but the truth is we can’t love anyone else if we don’t take care of our own health, mind, body and spirit.  Make self-care a priority and remember, you can’t pour out blessings from an empty cup.

Intercession

1 timothy 2 1.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  1 Timothy 2:1

I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people-

 

Intercession is prayer said on behalf of and for other people.  God wants all people to be saved so we should be praying for everyone we know and even those we don’t know.  We can pray for their needs, their health and most importantly for their salvation.  When we pray for others God’s love works through us.  Who will you pray for today?
