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.
Verse of the Day: Psalm 9:10
And those who know your name put their trust in you, for you O Lord, have not forsaken those who seek you.
The only way to know God is to seek Him with all of your heart. Spend time with Him in prayer, read the Holy Bible and really make an effort to understand who He is. The more you seek God in faith, the more you will come to know Him. You will know His true nature, power, wisdom, faithfulness and goodness. When you experience God’s love, grace and mercy for yourself you will come to completely trust in Him and realize that He is always there for you.
Verse of the Day: 1 Corinthians 16:13
Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be courageous; be strong.
Whether you realize it or not, you are constantly fighting spiritual battles against the rulers of darkness and evil and you never know what the new day may bring. Be vigilant, on guard, standing firm in your beliefs. Be brave and courageous knowing that through Christ the victory is yours. Start each day with prayer asking God to give you courage and strength to face whatever comes your way.
Verse of the Day: Galatians 6:2
Bear one another’s burdens and so fulfill the law of Christ.
In life there will be times when you need encouragement and there will be times when you need to encourage others and show compassion. There will be times when you go through hardships and need someone to lean on and there will be times when others will need to lean on you. We all face temptation and trials and as brothers and sisters in Christ we need to be there for one another, sympathizing, praying and sharing the love of Christ.
Verse of the Day: Luke 5:16
But Jesus often withdrew to lonely places and prayed.
God wants you to get away from all the noise and distractions around you to spend some quiet time with Him in prayer. Jesus, as an example for us, chose to get away and pray in private. It’s not always easy to find the time or a quiet place but if you make an effort to be alone with God in prayer it will always be worth it. You are never less alone than when you are alone with God.
Verse of the Day: Psalm 34:8
Taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the one who takes refuge in him.
I am personally inviting you to experience the infinite goodness of the Lord. He is perfect in every way, the author of all good things, everything about Him is good and He loves you. Turn to Him, put your hope in Him and put your trust in Him alone. He is the only one that can fill your heart with peace. You will never know what it’s like to have a relationship with the Lord until you make an effort to really seek and experience Him for yourself. A good place to start is by praying and reading the Word of God.
Verse of the Day: Isaiah 49:13
Shout for joy, you heavens; rejoice, you earth; burst into song, you mountains! For the Lord comforts his people and will have compassion on his afflicted ones.
The world attempts to keep you content but the only place to find real comfort and compassion is in the Lord. Shout for joy and rejoice because God loves and cares for His people. He doesn’t want you to suffer or be discouraged. Pour out your heart in prayer, for the Lord will never forsake you. He will have compassion on you and His unfailing love will comfort you and give you peace.
