Verse of the Day: Psalm 16:11
You make known to me the path of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence, with eternal pleasures at your right hand.
Until we find the path of life that leads us back to God we will have a longing to be complete. The only thing that can fill the emptiness is the love of God. This world is not our home. Heaven is our final destination. We are merely on the road that leads us to our Father’s house. How wonderful to be on the path that was laid out for us by our creator for one day we will be seated at His right hand in the joyful presence of our Savior.

Blessed are all who fear the Lord, who walk in obedience to him. You will eat the fruit of your labor; blessings and prosperity will be yours.
It doesn’t matter if you are rich, poor, young or old, blessings and prosperity come to all who fear and obey the Lord. Reverence to God, submitting to His will and obedience to His Word are the keys to a blessed and prosperous life. God wants you to enjoy the fruits of your labor. He wants you to be happy and reap all the benefits of His promises. If you walk in His ways all will be well with your soul while you live on this earth, and even better, for all eternity.
Verse of the Day: Psalm 18:16
He reached down from heaven and rescued me; he drew me out of deep waters.
Have you ever felt like you were doing all you could just to keep your head above water? Be it afflictions, sorrow or something else that makes you feel like giving up. Whatever troubles you find yourself in, call out to God even if you have to whisper. You are not alone, God is with you and He hears your prayers. God will fight for you and He will rescue you. He is your refuge from the storm. Trust in the Lord to be there for you, He is faithful and He loves you more than you can ever imagine.
Verse of the Day: John 14:6
Jesus answered, I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
Through the sacrifice made by Jesus on Calvary, God made a way for us to be saved from death and be with Him in heaven for all eternity. There is no other way to come to the Father, but through the Son. Not by works, merit or personal sacrifices. Jesus is the only way, He is our Savior, and there is no other way. He is the true way to the Father. His way is not only true but He is the truth itself. Christ is the author and giver of life, natural, spiritual and eternal. (John Gill’s Exposition)
Verse of the Day: Psalm 89:2
I will declare that your love stands firm forever, that you have established your faithfulness in heaven itself.
Though life may disappoint and try us, we can be assured that God honors and fulfills His promises. We can trust and rely on God’s faithfulness which has been established in heaven and stands firm forever. During the hardest trials, our faith in God’s love and mercy will always bring us peace and comfort. Our hope and confidence in God lies in His faithfulness because His Word is true and trustworthy forever and ever. Even if we are faithless, God remains faithful. (2 Timothy 2:13)
Verse of the Day: Hebrews 6:19
We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure.
This world is as a sea; the church in it, and so every believer, is as a ship; the port that is bound unto is heaven; Christ is the pilot, and hope is the anchor. (John Gill’s Exposition) If our hope is anchored in Jesus, when we go through storms, by faith we can be confident that we will remain connected, safe and secure. Whatever storm we face we can trust that Jesus will never leave us and our hope is never misplaced in Christ our Lord.
Verse of the Day: Psalm 48:14
For this God is our God for ever and ever; he will be our guide even to the end.
We all need directions to get us to where we want to go. Spiritually speaking, it’s the same thing. God has given us a spiritual compass, the Holy Spirit, to guide us through life every step of the way. He has given us a “map”, the Holy Bible, to show us the way we should go. God guides us in truth and with love through deep waters to peace and salvation and He will never leave us. If we are obedient and follow His instructions, He will lead us day by day to the promised land.
Verse of the Day: Psalm 33:4
For the word of the Lord is right and true; he is faithful in all he does.
Every word, every promise, every part of God’s Word is right and true. His commands and precepts are righteous and fair. God’s Word is an awesome display of His power, wisdom and goodness. God’s Word exists for all people equally and its path leads to heaven and happiness. We can be confident and believe every Word because He is truly faithful in all He does and keeps every promise. God is good and never changes, we can rely on this truth. He is so deserving of all praise for His righteousness, truth and faithfulness.
Verse of the Day: Isaiah 26:3
You will keep in perfect peace those whose minds are steadfast, because they trust in you.
No matter what you go through, if you stay focused on the Lord and trust in Him, He will give you peace to get through anything. God’s peace is real and true, it’s an inner peace that only He can give. It’s peace for this world and it’s a perfect peace that will continue even when we get to heaven. Keep your mind fixed on the love God has for you. Stay rooted and grounded in God’s promises and in His power. Give up your need to control every situation and just let God have His way. Let Him give you the peace your heart longs for.
Verse of the Day: Proverbs 3:1-2
Do not forget my teaching, but keep my commands in your heart, for they will prolong your life many years and bring you peace and prosperity.
People often joke about life not coming with an instruction manual. It actually does, it’s called The Holy Bible. The Book of Proverbs is an excellent place to start if you’re looking for instructions. It is an example of the Biblical wisdom tradition, and raises questions of values, moral behavior, the meaning of human life, and right conduct. (Wikipedia) If we live our lives according to God’s commands and keep His Word in our heart we can avoid many problems and live a long, peaceful and prosperous life. Even better than that, we can live forever in heaven.
