He will restore you and turn your sorrow into joy, your brokenness into beauty, your wailing into dancing.

Restoration

1 Peter 5 10

Verse of the Day:  1 Peter 5:10

And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast.

At the beginning of this year many of us were in a good place and we were looking forward to seeing what the new year had in store for us. Little did we know that this would be one of the hardest times since the Great Depression. Many have lost their jobs, their homes and people they love. Some are struggling emotionally, physically and financially just to make it to tomorrow. We have had to trust in the Lord like never before. But praise God, we serve the God of restoration! By His grace, we have been called to be His children and we have hope for a future because our heavenly Father always has a plan to heal and restore His people.

God Sees You

Genesis 16 13

 Verse of the Day:  Genesis 16:13

She gave this name to the Lord who spoke to her: “You are the God who sees me,” for she said, “I have now seen the One who sees me.”

God sees you. He sees everything you are going through, He knows your heart and He knows your pain. He looks at you with His eyes of love, mercy and grace. God loves you more than you could ever imagine and you need to know that you are not alone. Trust God and give Him your brokenness, your pain and everything that is weighing you down. Call upon the Lord, praise Him and allow Him to heal your heart and lead you to restoration.

Emmanuel

Matthew 1 23

Verse of the Day:  Matthew 1:23

The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and they will call him Emmanuel which means “God with us”.

The prophecy by Isaiah, which was inspired by God, revealed the birth of Jesus by a virgin and that they would call Him Emmanuel, which means God with us. The Gospel of Matthew interprets this as the birth of the Messiah and the fulfillment of scripture in Jesus. This was all part of God’s divine plan for the salvation of man and the restoration of fellowship between God and man. How wonderful to know that God loves us so much He sent His only Son to dwell with us and will be with us until the end of the world.

To Seek and to Save

Luke 19 10.jpg

Verse of the Day:  Luke 19:10

For the Son of Man came to seek and to save that which was lost.

Because of the actions of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden sin entered the world and separated us from God. But God loved us so much He made a way for us to be saved. He sent His only Son, Jesus, to this world to seek and to save the lost, to offer us the free gift of salvation. He rescued us from a life of sin, from the guilt of sin and from the power of sin when He paid the ultimate price and gave His life for our sin on Calvary so our relationship with God could be restored. So then, what shall we do to receive this gift? Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. (Acts 2:28) As followers of Christ, we need to share this Good News with the world while there is still time.

God Sees You

Verse of the Day:  Genesis 16:13     

She gave this name to the Lord who spoke to her: “You are the God who sees me,” for she said, “I have now seen the One who sees me.”  

God sees you. He knows your heart and He knows your pain. You are not alone. He loves you more than you could ever imagine. Trust God and give Him your brokenness. Allow Him to heal your heart and lead you to restoration.

Beautiful Star of Bethlehem

Matthew 2 2.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Matthew 2:2

Where is the one who has been born King of the Jews? We saw His star in the East and have come to worship Him.

 

The long awaited sign that the Savior had been born finally appeared in the night sky.  They magi knew that the King of the Jews had been born and the prophecy fulfilled. (A star will rise from Jacob; a scepter will emerge from Israel. Numbers 24:17) The message of the star is the good news that Jesus Christ the Messiah has come to pay for our sins so that we could have our relationship with God restored.

Change Begins with Ourselves

2 Chronicles 7 14.jpg

 

Verse of the Day: 2 Chronicles 7:14

Then if my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, I will hear from heaven and I will forgive their sins and restore their land.

 

The lack of morality and having no relationship with God is what’s wrong with our society today.  How do we fix it? We humble ourselves, pray, seek God and turn from our wicked ways.  If we do these things God will hear us, forgive us and heal our land. To change the world, we must first change ourselves.
