Verse of the Day:  Deuteronomy 20:4

For the LORD your God is the one who goes with you to fight for you against your enemies to give you victory.

Those that love and trust in the Lord may call upon Him in their time of need. Whatever battle you are facing be it physical, mental, emotional or spiritual God is with you and He will fight for you. From the smallest battle to the biggest God will defend you and protect you. This is Christian warfare and the key to victory is to stay in God’s will and to fight on your knees in prayer.

My Deliverer

Life can be hard and at times may even seem unfair. You will go through difficult times but don’t give up hope. Remember, the Lord has gotten you through tough times before and He will get you through them again. Keep your mind on the things above. Keep praying, cry out to God and be comforted in knowing that He hears you. Keep your focus on Him and He will get you through the troubles that come your way and in due time you will be delivered from them all. If not in this present life than surely in the hereafter where there will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain but only eternal happiness.

Take Care of Your Soul

3 John 1 2

Verse of the Day:  3 John 1:2

Dear friend, I pray that you may enjoy good health and that all may go well with you, even as your soul is getting along well.

We all have been very focused on our physical heath lately due to the Coronavirus. It’s important to make sure you take care of your body and enjoy life, but don’t forget to also take care of your soul because good health starts from the inside. Do things that make you smile and bring you joy. Do volunteer work, it not only helps others, it also brings you joy. Forgive others, let go of anger and hurt so you can move forward leaving the past behind. Exercise daily faith, hope and love in your Christian walk. Above all, fill your heart with the Word of God and let your soul be renewed by spending time alone with God who daily refreshes your spirit.

The Words of Your Mouth

Psalm 19 14 2

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 19:14

May these words of my mouth and this meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer.

Let your words and thoughts be pleasing to God when you pray, praise and give thanks. Likewise, let your words be pleasing and acceptable to Him in your everyday conversations and thoughts. Fill your mind and heart with positive thinking so there will be no room for negativity or sinful thoughts. Sometimes it’s difficult to stay positive in a negative world, but if you stay focused on the Lord who is your Rock and Redeemer, you can have peace in all circumstances.

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.

In this world we will have troubles. They can be troubles we bring on ourselves by our own actions or they can be brought on from other people. Sometimes they’re from the devil who tempts us and schemes against us. It can be an illness or hardship beyond our control. They can be troubles that last for a day, for a while or for a season. The important thing to know is that when you have a relationship with God you can always call on Him and know that He hears you and answers you. God hears your every prayer and when you learn to trust in Him, He will give you peace. Even when you can’t find the right words to pray God hears your heart.

Memorial Day

John 15 13

Verse of the Day:  John 15:13

Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.

As we celebrate and enjoy our freedom this Memorial Day, let’s take a moment to reflect on the true meaning of the holiday as we remember those who died in active military service.  Let’s honor and pay respect to these heroes by praying for their families, our leaders and our country. No matter what is happening around us and the current condition of our country remember, we still live in one of the best nations in the world. Enjoy your freedom but don’t forget the price others have paid for it when they laid down their life and gave all.

The Right Direction

Isaiah 30 21

Verse of the Day:  Isaiah 30:21

Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, “This is the way; walk in it.”

If you are at a crossroad in your life or have an important decision to make and you’re not sure which path to take listen closely to the Holy Spirit, who will guide you onto the right path.  Humbly and earnestly seek guidance through prayer, fasting and studying the Word of God. The Holy Spirit also helps you in your day to day life keeping you on the right path just like the shepherd guides his sheep. The Word of God and the Holy Spirit are always there to direct you in the way you should go.

Happy Mother’s Day

Mother's Day - Proverbs 31 28

Verse of the Day:  Proverbs 31:28

Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her.

If you are blessed to have your mother in your life, honor her as the Lord commands. Pray for her and ask God to bless and protect her always. Be devoted and respectful, affectionate and loving for she won’t always be here. If there are grievances between you, ask God to help you forgive each other. If you are blessed to be a mother, pray that you would be a good example for your children and that they would honor you in the same way you have honored your own mother.

National Day of Prayer

National Day of Prayer 2

 

Let’s join together today to pray for our country. Our country and our people need God’s healing power more than ever. Let us unite and pray for our government leaders, military, and first responders. Pray for the doctors, nurses, researchers and all others who tirelessly work to save us from the Covid-19 pandemic. Pray for our businesses, schools and churches who have also been adversely affected. Pray for God’s mercy and grace, direction and wisdom. Most importantly, pray for our people to know how much God loves them.

May the Lord Be with You

2 Corinthians 13 14

Verse of the Day:  2 Corinthians 13:14

May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all.

May the fourth has become a day of observance for Star Wars fans. It is a play on the phrase “May the Force Be with You”.  But life is not a movie, you do however, get to choose the ending. Until that day, I pray that you would come to know the endless love of God, the Father. I pray that you would know the redeeming grace that comes through believing in the Son, Jesus Christ and I pray that you would receive the fellowship and power that comes with receiving the gift of the Holy Spirit. May the Lord be with you always.
