God is Faithful

Psalm 89 2

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)

Anchored in Jesus 

Hebrews 6 19

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.

Let God Guide You

Psalm 48 14

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.

God’s Word is Right and True

Psalm 33 4

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.

Perfect Peace

Isaiah 26 3 2

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.

Life’s Instruction Manual

proverbs 3 1-2

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.

The Never Changing Word of God

Matthew 24 35

Verse of the Day: Matthew 24:35

Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away.

We live in an ever changing world and change is inevitable for better or worse. There is a saying some people think comes from the Bible but it doesn’t: “This too shall pass”. It’s an adage reflecting the temporary nature, or ephemerality, of the human condition. (Wikipedia) I’m sure it has helped some people get through tough times, but there is something even better, something you can always count on, the never changing Word of God. It was true yesterday, it’s true today and it will be true forever. You can depend and rely on it. You can live your life by it, even to the end of the world because it is never ever going to change.

Praise God!

Psalm 150 6

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 150:6

Let everything that has breath praise the Lord. Praise the Lord.

No matter what is going on in your life, God is worthy of your praise. If things are going well, praise Him. If things aren’t going well, praise Him. Praise God through faith, with love and confidence of His goodness. Praise Him for the victory of salvation. Praise Him cheerfully and with joy for His love and mercy endure forever. God is great and worthy of all praise. As long as you have breath in your body praise the Lord. And when you get to heaven you can praise Him for all eternity!

Keep On Keeping On

James 1 12 2

Verse of the Day:  James 1:12

Blessed is the one who perseveres under trial because, having stood the test, that person will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love him.

There will be trials, there will be tough times, but God is with you and if you don’t give up you will be blessed. Be patient in afflictions, keep believing and keep praying. It’s no surprise that we will face adversity Jesus said we will have troubles but to take heart because He has overcome the world. So when these troubles come stand firm in your faith and trust in the Lord. Stay strong, you are not alone, and it will all be worth it in the end for when that day comes you will receive the crown of life, which is a gift from God.

God’s Promises

Hebrews 6 18.jpg

Verse of the Day:  Hebrews 6:18

God did this so that, by two unchangeable things in which it is impossible for God to lie, we who have fled to take hold of the hope set before us may be greatly encouraged.

The Bible tells us that God cannot lie and His promises are unchangeable. We can be confident in and count on God’s promises for all eternity. Not only can we count on God’s promises but we can also live our lives by them. By faith we can receive and claim each and every promise God makes through His everlasting Word. The firm believer in God’s promises is comforted in all situations by the hope and encouragement they have in trusting and patiently waiting on the promises of God to be fulfilled either in this world or in heaven.
