My Rock

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 18:2           

The Lord is my rock, my fortress, and my deliverer; in whom I will trust.           

When we have a personal relationship with God we learn to trust Him in all situations. We can turn to God to shelter us from the storms of life, to build our hopes on and to deliver us from all our troubles. We know that no matter what is going on around us we can count on Him to be there for us. We can rely on Him to give us peace and help us get through anything because He loves us and He always keeps His promises. People may fail you but God never will.

Lord, You are my rock, my fortress and my deliverer. Thank you for being my shelter from the storm. I know that no matter what is going on in my life I can count on you to see me through it. Thank you for the peace I have in you.  Amen

Worship in Spirit and in Truth

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 you begin to worship God in spirit and in truth you will be transformed by His grace because worship changes everything!

As long as you have breath in your lungs, praise God!

Worship Over Rituals

Hosea 6 6

Verse of the Day:  Hosea 6:6

For I desired mercy, and not sacrifice; and the knowledge of God more than burnt offerings.

God is more pleased with mercy, love and compassion towards all people rather than formalities. More than sacrifices God wants you to know Him on a personal level. He wants you to trust in Him, submit to His will and be obedient to His laws. God wants you to worship in spirit and in truth rather than go through the motion of ceremonies. Rituals and sacrifices have their place in organized religion but without your heart truly in it for the right reasons they are meaningless.
