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 rely on God’s faithfulness which has been established in heaven.

Verse of the Day: Psalm 145:9
The LORD is good to all; he has compassion on all he has made.
God is the essence of perfect goodness. He is kind, caring, compassionate, generous and merciful toward all who seek Him. There is not a single person God is not ready and willing to bless; not a single person who God does not want to see happy and not a single sinner God would not show mercy to. Everything from God is good and all good things are from God. Turn to God, His goodness and love last forever.
Verse of the Day: Jeremiah 32:17
Ah, Sovereign Lord, you have made the heavens and the earth by your great power and outstretched arm. Nothing is too hard for you.
God is all powerful and there is nothing too hard for Him. When you feel overwhelmed by your circumstances you need to remember that you serve a mighty God who created the heavens and the earth. For Him, nothing is impossible. Nothing is beyond His power and there is nothing that His power cannot do.
Verse of the Day: 1 Peter 1:15-16
But just as he who called you is holy, so be holy in all you do; for it is written: “Be holy, because I am holy.”
God is holy and He is calling you do be holy in all you do. He wants you to be obedient to His Word and live according to His will in every aspect of your life. You might think, God is perfect and it is impossible for me to be as holy as God, but try anyway. It is better to shoot at the stars, even though your arrow never reaches them, than to fire it at the goal of a worldly life.
Verse of the Day: Proverbs 20:7
The righteous man walks in his integrity; his children are blessed after him.
Fathers – You are responsible for teaching your children about the Lord. Be a leader and live a life of integrity. Show your children love and compassion but discipline them when necessary.
Children – Obey, respect and honor your father as the Lord commands.
Fathers and children – No matter how old you are, remember that no one is perfect, forgive each other and try to live in peace.
Verse of the Day: 2 Chronicles 15:7
But as for you, be strong and do not give up, for your work will be rewarded.
We all have times when we feel discouraged and we feel like giving up and quitting. If the Lord has put a “work” in your heart He will make a way for you to do it. That doesn’t mean it won’t be hard, because it might be, but that’s okay because God is on your side. What you do for God, and for his honor and service, will not be overlooked. Be strong and don’t give up!
Verse of the Day: Mark 10:45
For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.
As followers of Jesus Christ we should follow the example He set for us. Jesus showed us how to help the weak and we must, with humility and love, also do the same. How wonderful it is to serve God by serving others.
