Verse of the Day: Jeremiah 31:3
The Lord appeared to us in the past, saying: “I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with unfailing kindness.
God assures His people that His love was established since the beginning of time. It is not a temporary love but one that continues from generation to generation. It is confirmed daily as He forgives, protects, provides, heals and demonstrates His continued grace, mercy and power in your life. God’s magnificent love is sovereign, unchangeable everlasting and nothing can separate us from His love for us.
Verse of the Day: Hebrews 11:1
Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.
Faith is believing in and completely trusting in the one true God, His Word and His promises. It is the foundation and firm belief in the power, faithfulness and love of God. Faith is what helps us get through life knowing that by accepting Jesus Christ as our Savior and by the power of the resurrection someday we will be in heaven with God for all eternity.
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: 2 Corinthians 4:16
Therefore, we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day.
Life is sometimes hard and the world can be a mean and lonely place not to mention the pressure we put on ourselves to be perfect. Don’t be discouraged, don’t give up, this world and everything in it is only temporary. Turn to God and let your spirit be renewed by His love and grace. Remember, God gave you a spirit that does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline. (2 Timothy 1:7)
Verse of the Day: Isaiah 40:29
He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak.
Today’s society teaches that independence is the goal but what we need most is to be dependent on the Lord. If we learn to trust and hope in God, he will give us strength when we’re weary and power when we’re weak. You can depend on God, his power, promises and provisions.
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.
