Confess Your Sins to God

1 john 1 9

 

Verse of the Day:  1 John 1:9

If we confess our sin, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.

 

Unconfessed sin can be a stumbling block that keeps you from getting closer to God.  The Bible says, The Lord is far from the wicked but He hears the prayers of the righteous. (Proverbs 15:29)   Even on your best days there may be sin in your life. When you pray, humbly come before the Lord and honestly confess your sins relying on His mercy and forgiveness through the righteousness of Christ. God is merciful and ready to forgive so don’t let unconfessed sin come between you and the Lord.

Mercy

Titus 3 5 (2).jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Titus 3:5

He saved us, not because of righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy.

 

The dictionary describes mercy as compassion or forgiveness shown toward someone whom it is within one’s power to punish or harm. We are all born sinners with sinful, selfish natures because sin entered the world through Adam and Eve. We deserve the condemnation that came as a result of sin, which is death. But, because of God’s mercy, He sent His only Son to pay the price of sin so that we could be made right. His merciful gift of salvation brought forgiveness and eternal life through Jesus Christ.

My Deliverer

Psalm 34 19

 

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 34:19

The righteous person may have many troubles, but the Lord delivers him from them all.

 

Life can be hard and at times may even seem unfair.  You will go through tough times but don’t give up hope.  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 God and He will get you through the troubles that come your way and in due time you will be delivered from them all.

Choosing Friends

Proverbs 12 26 2.jpg

 

Verse of the Day: Proverbs 12:26

The righteous choose their friends carefully, but the way of the wicked leads them astray.

 

Choosing the right kind of friends is actually a big deal because whether you realize it or not, you become like the people you spend the most time with. Surround yourself with people who encourage you and make a positive impact in your life. Your friends should inspire and motivate you to do good and be a better person. Choose your friends wisely and strive to be a good friend too.

He Sees and Hears You

Psalm 34 15

 

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 34:15

The eyes of the Lord are on the righteous, and his ears are attentive to their cry

 

As believers in Jesus we have been made righteous through Christ on Calvary and not by our own doing.  We have, therefore, been adopted into the family of God the Father. We can rest assured that He watches over and protects us and when we cry out to Him we know He hears us.
