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 one feel helpless, alone and powerless. As believers we know that our God is the source of all hope. Hope for healing, hope for peace, hope for joy and hope for the future here on earth and in heaven. All hope comes from knowing, believing and trusting God. By His love, grace and mercy God has given us the precious gift of hope through the power of the Holy Spirit. If you feel hopeless, seek a relationship with the author of all hope, the Lord our God.

That I May Know Him Better

Ephesians 1 17.jpg

Verse of the Day: Ephesians 1:17

I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know Him better.

My deepest desire is that I may know God more and that I may grow closer to Him with every day, week, month and year that passes. My hope is that I may continue to gain wisdom and revelation that brings me closer to God. I want a deeper relationship with my God that helps me to live a life more pleasing to Him. I want my creator to fix what is broken in me, to heal what the world has hurt in me so that I can be who He created me to be. I want more of you, God, less of me and more of you.

Knowing and Trusting God

Psalm 9 10.jpg

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 9:10

And those who know your name put their trust in you, for you O Lord, have not forsaken those who seek you.

The only way to know God is to seek Him with all of your heart.  Spend time with Him in prayer, read the Holy Bible and really make an effort to understand who He is. The more you seek God in faith, the more you will come to know Him. You will know His true nature, power, wisdom, faithfulness and goodness. When you experience God’s love, grace and mercy for yourself you will come to completely trust in Him and realize that He is always there for you.

Worship in Spirit and in Truth

John 4 23

Verse of the Day:  John 4:23

But the time is coming—indeed it’s here now—when true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and in truth. The Father is looking for those who will worship him that way.

God is looking for people who will worship Him with all of their heart and soul. He doesn’t want people who are just going through the motions or performing ceremonies. That’s not all He wants, your worship must also be in truth.  In order to worship the truth, we must know the truth which is found in God’s Word. Truth comes from the certainty in knowing who God is and by having a personal relationship with Him. The more you know who God is the more genuine your worship becomes. As #knowingyou begin to worship God in spirit and in truth you will be transformed by His grace because worship changes everything!

A Soul on Fire

2 Timothy 1 6

 

Verse of the Day:  2 Timothy 1:6

For this reason I remind you to fan into flame the gift of God, which is in you through the laying on of my hands.

 

A soul on fire for Jesus is a heart that has moved from knowing who God is to having a personal relationship with God.  It’s a soul that’s passionate about sharing the Word of God and the love of God with hurting people.  Be sure to keep your flame fanned by using the gifts God has given you to help bring salvation and hope to the lost.

God Hears You

Psalm 86 7

 

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 86:7

When I am in distress, I call to you, because you answer me.

 

Faith is not about having the answers; it’s about knowing the one who has the answers.  Having a relationship with God is what’s important and we can be encouraged in knowing that God hears our prayers. If we learn to trust in Him, when we call on Him, He will give us peace and comfort. We can have confidence in God at all times even when we can’t find the right words to pray, God hears our heart.

Teaching Children About God

Proverbs 22 6

 

Verse of the Day:  Proverbs 22:6

Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.

 

One of the most important things we can ever teach children is how much God loves them.   Knowing they are loved by God Himself will give them confidence to shine.  Let’s be examples for the children in our lives and teach them what it is to know and love God and what it is to be loved by Him.

Pray for Them

ephesians 3 16-18

 

Verse of the Day:  Ephesians 3:16-18

I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ.

 

Just like Paul prayed for the believers in Ephesus, we need to pray for our family, our friends, even our enemies and the world in general.  We need to pray that they would invite Jesus into their lives so they may experience His infinite love first hand and have a personal relationship with Him.  We also need to pray that they would come to truly know Him, His grace, glory and how much He really loves them.
