Our Daily Bread

Matthew 4 4

Verse of the Day:  Matthew 4:4

Jesus answered, “It is written: Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.’”

Just like bread (food) supports life to your body, the Word of God supports life to your soul. Your body can’t go too long without nourishment. Without food for prolonged periods your body becomes weak. It’s the same for your soul, without regular nourishment your soul too will become weak. God provided manna to the Israelites satisfying their hunger and in doing so, saved them. God has also provided the Holy Bible to satisfy your soul and save you from temptation. Jesus was tempted by the devil and in response He quoted scripture. If you don’t know scripture how can you use it to fight the schemes of the devil? If you want to be grow stronger spiritually, nourish your soul by reading the Word of God daily.

God’s Ways

Psalm 119 15

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 119:15

I will meditate on your precepts, and contemplate your ways.

A precept is a command or a general rule intended to regulate behavior or thought.  Instead of focusing on your problems or things that upset, disappoint or annoy you think about the way God wants you to deal with them. Think about how He wants you to respond. Let God’s precepts direct you in the way you should go. God’s ways are pure and good and they are always better than our own. Keep God’s Word in your heart and let it guide your steps through life.

Peace

John 14 27

Verse of the Day:  John 14:27

Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.

Things are going to happen in life that make you sad, afraid or are just hard to get through. Don’t be troubled or afraid Jesus is the Prince of Peace and has given you the peace that is revealed in the Gospel. He’s left you peace that was paid for with His precious blood when He gave His life for you on Calvary. You cannot get true peace by your own means, nothing in this world will bring you true peace because the world does not have peace. By faith you are able to receive this precious gift of peace that is Jesus Christ Himself. When your heart is hurting, troubled or afraid turn to Jesus. He’ll give you peace beyond anything compared to in this world and it is available to all that will trust in Him.

Walking in God’s Word

Psalm 119 105

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 119:105

Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.

Navigating this world is no easy task.  At times you may feel like you’re lost or walking in the dark but God’s Word is here to guide you and to show you the way you should go.  The Bible is a light shining in the darkness. The more you know and study God’s Word, the more you can apply it to your daily life.  The more you apply it to your life, the clearer the path becomes.  Let God guide you through life with His Word.

God Is with You in Every Season

Ecclesiastes 3 1

Verse of the Day:  Ecclesiastes 3:1

There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens.

Everything has a time and a season. There will be good times, hard times, growing times, quiet times, every kind of season you can imagine. The most important thing you need to know is that you never have to go through a season alone.  God is with you in every season and He loves you more than you will ever know.

 

Your Thoughts Matter

Proverbs 4 23

 

Verse of the Day:  Proverbs 4:23

Be careful how you think; your life is shaped by your thoughts. (GNT)

 

If you think your thoughts don’t matter you are very wrong.  When you think about things or believe something whether it’s good or bad, it turns into the things you do. If you do these things enough times they turn into a habit.  Your habits determine your character and your character determines who you are in life. Who you are in life determines where you will spend eternity. So you see, your thoughts really do matter.

To Him I Belong

Jeremiah 10 23

 

Verse of the Day:  Jeremiah 10:23

Lord, I know that people’s lives are not their own; it is not for them to direct their steps.

 

The devil tries to trick you into thinking “this is my life and I can do what I want with it”. That kind of thinking only leads to sin and we know that the devil is a liar. The truth is your life is not your own, you belong to God. When you accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior you become a new creation. God has a plan for your life and when you surrender your life to Him, He will direct your steps.
