Listening

1 Samuel 3 10

 

Verse of the Day:  1 Samuel 3:10

The Lord came and stood there, calling as at the other times, “Samuel! Samuel!”  Then Samuel said, “Speak, for your servant is listening.”

 

Prayer is not only about us talking to God, it’s also about actively listening to hear the voice of God. We may not hear an audible voice like Samuel did but if we listen with our heart we will become sensitive to the prompting of the Holy Spirit.  Spend time with God by simply being still.  Listen with your heart and learn to recognize God’s voice.

Hope for Today

Romans 15 13

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.

The Right Direction

Isaiah 30 21.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Isaiah 30:21

Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, “This is the way; walk in it.”

 

If you are at a crossroad in your life or have an important decision to make and you’re not sure which path to take listen closely to the Holy Spirit, who will guide you onto the right path.  Humbly and earnestly seek guidance through prayer, fasting and studying the Word of God. The Holy Spirit also helps you in your day to day life when you are in tune with His prompting, which are always aligned with scripture.

Let God Guide You  

Psalm 48 14.jpg

 

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. If we are obedient to His instructions God will lead us day by day.

I am a Witness

Acts 1 8.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Acts 1:8

But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.

 

I am a witness to God’s power changing lives. For I am no longer the same and now through the power of the Holy Spirit I am a witness to God’s message of love and forgiveness. You too are a witness and can share what the Lord has done for you.

Intercession by the Holy Spirit

Romans 8 26

 

Verse of the Day:  Romans 8:26

In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans.

 

At times we come before the Lord feeling defeated to the point where words cannot convey what we want to say to Him. Tears stream down our face as we humble ourselves before the almighty God. It’s okay if we don’t have the right words, the Holy Spirit will intercede for us and step in to interpret what is in our heart.

A Teachable Spirit

Psalm 143 10

 

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 143:10

Teach me to do Your will, for You are my God.  May Your gracious Spirit lead me on level ground.

God loves us so much that He gave us commands to obey that lead us towards His goodness and mercy and away from a path that leads to destruction.  Having a teachable spirit will put us in a position to be led by God.
