Joy Comes in the Morning         

Psalm 30 5 (2)

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 30:5

For his anger lasts only a moment, but his favor lasts a lifetime; weeping may stay for the night, but rejoicing comes in the morning.

As we go through life there will be times when, for whatever reason, we will encounter difficulties, pain or sorrow. Be comforted in knowing that no matter what you may be going through it’s only for a night (a season), it will not last forever. The mercies of God are new every morning and you may be weeping now but joy will come soon. Things may seem dark and hopeless now but with the dawn of a new day the sun rises once again and light breaks through the darkness. Hope is on the horizon. If you woke up this morning that means you’re alive and breathing. You have something to be thankful for so keep praising the Lord.

Keep Serving the Lord

Romans 12 11

Verse of the Day: Romans 12:11

Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord.

This year has been difficult to say the least. We’ve had a lot to deal with including the coronavirus, being quarantined, loss of jobs, natural disasters and civil unrest. Our schools closed, work places closed, stores closed, even churches closed. Through it all, God is still with us. Don’t let your spiritual relationship become lukewarm. Don’t let the troubles of this world come between you and God. All these things are temporary and this is not our eternal home. Keep serving the Lord, keep reading the Word of God, keep praying, keep singing, keep praising and worshiping, keep your soul on fire for God!

God Hears Your Prayers

Jeremiah 29 12

Verse of the Day:  Jeremiah 29:12

Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you.

Be encouraged, you serve a God who promises to listen to every single one of your prayers.  He hears your requests and petitions and answers them in His own timing and in His way. Usually, the answer is yes, no or wait. It’s not always what you want but it is what you need. So pray without ceasing and pray with expectation. Keep praying, keep praising, keep worshiping because God is listening.
