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

Getting Through Dark Days 

Psalm 43 5

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 43:5

Why, my soul, are you downcast?  Why so disturbed within me?  Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior and my God.

Life is not always sunshine and flowers. There are days when bad things happen, days when sadness creeps in and there are days when we just feel lonely. In these times, you need to lift your head toward God and give praise to your Savior. The way to forget your troubles is to remember God’s goodness. God loves you more than you will ever know. Turn to Him in your times of trouble. Thank Him for all the good in your life. He hasn’t forgotten you, He is close to the brokenhearted. Put your hope in God and rely on Him to get you through even the darkest of days. Let your faith and hope in God be the path to victory.

Personal Requests

Matthew 6 8

Verse of the Day:  Matthew 6:8

For your Father knows the things you have need of before you ask Him.

God already knows your needs before you ask but He still wants to hear your request and see you exercise your faith. Before you get on your knees to pray, God’s already making a way. Coming to God in prayer for your needs shows your reliance and dependence on Him. If there’s something you need, go directly to the source. Take it to God in prayer, be bold and confident with your personal requests and always pray with the right motives and according to His will.

God is Faithful

Psalm 89 2

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 89:2

I will declare that your love stands firm forever, that you have established your faithfulness in heaven itself.

Though life may disappoint and try us, we can be assured that God honors and fulfills His promises. We can trust and rely on God’s faithfulness which has been established in heaven and stands firm forever. During the hardest trials, our faith in God’s love and mercy will always bring us peace and comfort. Our hope and confidence in God lies in His faithfulness because His Word is true and trustworthy forever and ever. Even if we are faithless, God remains faithful. (2 Timothy 2:13)

Don’t Lose Heart            

2 Corinthians 4 16 2

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 demanding and hard on us physically and emotionally. We get sick, we get tired and we get mentally exhausted. Don’t be discouraged by your burdens and afflictions. Don’t give up, this world and everything in it is only temporary including our physical bodies. Our physical limitations make us rely not on ourselves but on our sovereign God. Keep doing the work of the Lord. Don’t lose heart, He sees everything you do for His honor and glory. Trust in God and let your spirit be renewed by His love and grace.

Teaching Children About God

Proverbs 22 6

Verse of the Day: Proverbs 22:6

Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.

One of the most important things we can ever do is to teach children how much God loves them. Knowing they are loved by God, the Creator, Himself will give them confidence to shine. It’s our responsibility to teach our children the ways of the Lord, to teach them what it means to be a child of God and to pray for and with them. It’s up to us to give them a strong foundation on which they can rely. Let’s be examples for the children in our lives and teach them what it is to know and love God and what it is to be loved by Him. If we don’t teach them to follow Christ the world will teach them not to.

Strength Renewed

Isaiah 40 31

Verse of the Day: Isaiah 40:31

But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.

As 2019 comes to a close we can thank God for seeing us through another year. Though we may have had struggles we made it through them with the help of the Lord. Personally, our family went through one of the most difficult times when my husband was diagnosed with colon cancer. But because of God’s great mercy he survived and through it all our faith was made stronger. The new year will soon be here and 2020 is not only the start of a new year but also a new decade and it’s the perfect time for new beginnings and new possibilities. Whatever you may currently be going through rely on God and put your hope in Him to give you strength and fortitude. Trust in the Lord to renew and refresh your spirit. You are more than conquerors through God who loves you.
