Don’t Be Fooled

Psalm 14 1.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 14:1

The fool says in his heart, “There is no God.”

 

Today is April Fools’ day, a day in which people play practical jokes and spread hoaxes.  It’s all about fun and games.  However, the Bible says only a fool would deny the existence of God. Where you will spend eternity is no joking matter.  Matthew 25:46 says: And these will go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous into eternal life. Don’t be fooled into thinking there is no God, seek the Lord while he may be found; call upon him while he is near. (Isaiah 55:6)

Knowing Christ

Philippians 3 10.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Philippians 3:10

I want to know Christ—yes, to know the power of his resurrection and participation in his sufferings, becoming like him in his death

 

There is a difference in knowing about someone and knowing someone and there is a difference between knowing what someone does and knowing who someone is. You may have known about Jesus all your life but until you seek Him with all of your heart you won’t really know Him as your personal Savior. You won’t have a personal relationship with Him until you start spending time with Him.  The more time you spend with Him the more you will become like Him.  You have a friend in Jesus, start getting to really know Him.

Seek the Lord

Deuteronomy 4 29

 

Verse of the Day:  Deuteronomy 4:29

But if from there you seek the Lord your God, you will find him if you seek him with all your heart and with all your soul.

 

God isn’t far from you, He’s always with you, you need only to seek Him with all of your heart and soul.  He wants to have a relationship with you but He’s not going to force you.  He wants you to seek Him, and the more you seek Him, the more you will find Him. The most important thing you can ever do isn’t found in the busyness of your life, it is found in the quiet times seeking God.  This world is temporary and everything in it is temporary, but what God is offering you is eternal.

Seek the Lord

Jeremiah 29 13.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Jeremiah 29:13

You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.

 

When you seek the Lord with a sincere heart you will find Him.  God hears your prayers and knows yours heart.  God promises that if you humble yourself, pray, seek His face and turn from your wicked ways He will hear you. Make God a priority in the coming year by making time to read His Word and spending time with Him in prayer. God loves you and wants to have a personal relationship with you but it’s up to you to seek Him.

God is Good

Psalm 145 9.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 145:9

The Lord is good to all: and his tender mercies are over all his works.

 

God is the essence of perfect goodness. He is kind, caring, compassionate, generous and merciful toward all who seek Him. Everything from God is good and all good things are from God. Turn to God, His goodness and love last forever.

Turn to God for Salvation

Isaiah 45 22

 

Verse of the Day:  Isaiah 45:22

Turn to me and be saved, all you ends of the earth; for I am God, and there is no other.

 

There is no other way to be saved.  You won’t find salvation in idols, in man, not even in yourself.  Only God can save you.  Seek the Lord while he may be found, call on him while he is near. (Isaiah 55:6)
