Perseverance       

Hebrews 10 36 2

Verse of the Day:  Hebrews 10:36

You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what he has promised.

When times are tough, when you are struggling or when things in your life seem fruitless, be patient, stay strong and don’t give up. Keep on the path God has set you on in spite of difficulty, obstacles or discouragement. Don’t lose your confidence in God or in His promises, wait patiently on the Lord because He is always on time. Don’t give up, you only fail if you quit. Continue in the will of God, finish your race strong and you will receive what He has promised, eternal life.

Keep Praying and Singing

Acts 16 25

Verse of the Day:  Acts 16:25

About midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the other prisoners were listening to them.

Paul and Silas were in a pretty bad situation. They had been beaten and thrown into prison. They had every reason to be bitter and angry, but because of their love and faith in Jesus they chose to pray and sing to God despite their current circumstances. Whatever difficult situation you may find yourself in today, keep praying and singing to God. Keep praising God no matter what the circumstances. Keep praising Him until He gives you the victory.

Love and Good Deeds

Hebrews 10 24 3

Verse of the Day:  Hebrews 10:24

And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds.

We are all going through a lot right now. Let your love for God and your gratitude for His mercy and goodness inspire you to share His love and with others. Let’s motivate each other and encourage acts of love and service for those in need so that our heavenly Father may be glorified. We need to do something, help somebody, tell someone about Jesus, if not us then who will?

Kind Words

Proverbs 16 24

Verse of the Day:  Proverbs 16:24

Gracious words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones.

Let’s all make an effort to encourage the people around us, especially the people we love and care about most. Kindness doesn’t cost a thing yet it’s so valuable. We can build each other up with loving and kind words that promote hope and courage. A kind word can change someone’s entire day and we all can use a little kindness. Encourage love and kindness for they are never wasted in God’s eyes.

Rich in Good Deeds

1 Timothy 6 18

Verse of the Day:  1 Timothy 6:18

Command them to do good, to be rich in good deeds, and to be generous and willing to share.

In this world money comes and money goes. If you want to be truly rich in life you must do good deeds and cheerfully share what you have with those in need. Build your treasure in heaven by doing the work of the Lord. Check on the elderly and sick, feed the hungry, give to the poor and do what you can to help a hurting world know God. These kinds of things make a real difference and these are the things that enrich your life. Give, serve, love, these are the sacrifices that please God.

Straighten Your Crown

Hebrews 4 16

Verse of the Day:  Hebrews 4:16

Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.

We all have days when we wake up feeling like we just can’t face another day. Don’t let that overwhelming feeling discourage you. Take a deep breath, remind yourself that you are a daughter of the King and straighten your crown. Come boldly to the throne of God to lay your burdens at His feet and receive His mercy and grace for today. God is with you, God is for you and God loves you.

Live Wisely

Ephesians 5 15-16

Verse of the Day:  Ephesians 5:15-16

Be very careful, then, how you live—not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil.

We are living in troubled times and it’s so easy to go astray from God’s ways. We need to live our lives conscientiously and with purpose. Jesus is your example of how to live a righteous and honorable life. Be diligent and wise in your decisions, making the most of every opportunity, always keeping your eyes focused on the Lord. Ask God to give you the wisdom you need to make the right decisions in your daily life and He will gladly give it to you.
