For God’s Purpose

Romans 6 13

 

Verse of the Day:  Romans 6:13

Do not offer any part of yourself to sin as an instrument of wickedness, but rather offer yourselves to God as those who have been brought from death to life; and offer every part of yourself to him as an instrument of righteousness.

 

If you have been born again, you have a new identity in Christ and you are no longer a slave to sin. Because you have been set free you can now offer yourself to God, both body and soul, as an instrument of faith, joy, hope, peace and love to be used for His purpose.

Meditation

Psalm 77 12

 

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 77:12

I will consider all your works and meditate on all your mighty deeds.

 

Make time to meditate and reflect on all that the Lord has done for you.  This is especially helpful when your current circumstances are challenging.  Remembering the ways God has been merciful to you in the past will give you comfort and peace as he brings you through your present situation.

Live at Peace

Romans 12 18

 

Verse of the Day:  Romans 12:18

If possible, to the best of your ability, live at peace with all people.

 

We cannot control what other people do, but we certainly can control our own actions and responses.  It may not always be easy, but it will be worth it to try to live peacefully with others, especially those who are difficult to deal with. Do your part to be kind and leave it in God’s hands.

Seek Peace

Psalm 34 14

 

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 34:14

Depart from evil, and do good; seek peace, and pursue it.

 

Evil is all around us all we have to do is turn on the evening news to see proof of the evil in this world.  To live a peaceful life, the Bible tells us to turn from evil.  This includes evil people, evil places and all things evil.  Instead, do good, according to God’s word.  Actively seek peace in every area of your life through your faith in God.

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.

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.
