Saved from Yourself

Psalm 118 14.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 118:14

The Lord is my strength and my song; he has become my salvation.

 

Even if you are going down the wrong path the Lord will never forget you, He will never leave you.  Surrender to His calling. It’s not too late to turn around and it’s not too late to start over.  The Lord will save you from yourself and from your own bad decisions.  When you accept Jesus as your Savior you can leave the guilt and shame of your past behind, you are a new creation. Let Him be your strength, your song and your Savior.

Depend on God

Isaiah 40 29.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Isaiah 40:29

He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak.

 

Today’s society teaches that independence is the goal but what we need most is to be dependent on the Lord.  If we learn to trust and hope in God, he will give us strength when we’re weary and power when we’re weak. You can depend on God, his power, promises and provisions.

Rely on God’s Love

1 John 4 16.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  1 John 4:16

And so we know and rely on the love God has for us.  God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them.

 

If your first thought of the day is “God loves me” it will change the way you react to things that happen throughout your day.  No matter what happens tell yourself, “It’s going to be okay, God loves me”.  You can rely on God’s love for you and His strength will get you through the most difficult days if only you would trust in His love for you.

Confidence 

Proverbs 31 25

 

Verse of the Day: Proverbs 31:25

Strength and honor are her clothing; she is confident about the future.

 

A virtuous woman of God carries herself with strength and honor in her attitude and her behavior. She is in control of her actions and does everything with purpose and uprightness. She is respected for more than her outward appearance, she is respected for her godliness and holiness. She is confident because she knows God is in control of her life and the future.

Lead Me to the Rock

Psalm 61 2.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 61:2

From the end of the earth will I cry to thee, when my heart is overwhelmed; lead me to the rock that is higher than I.

 

There are times when we may feel far from God, when we feel alone, when our heart feels sad and overwhelmed.  He is always there for you, He is in control and you can turn to Him with all your troubles.  Cry out to the Lord and ask Him to strengthen your faith, for He alone is your rock and your salvation.

Pray for Them

ephesians 3 16-18

 

Verse of the Day:  Ephesians 3:16-18

I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ.

 

Just like Paul prayed for the believers in Ephesus, we need to pray for our family, our friends, even our enemies and the world in general.  We need to pray that they would invite Jesus into their lives so they may experience His infinite love first hand and have a personal relationship with Him.  We also need to pray that they would come to truly know Him, His grace, glory and how much He really loves them.

10 Days of Thanksgiving – Day 2: Thankful for Wonderful Memories

Philippians 1 3

 

Verse of the Day:  Philippians 1:3

I thank my God every time I remember you.

 

Paul wrote this in a letter after he left Philippi where he had gone through some very difficult times, yet he chose not to focus on the things that had caused him pain. We ought to be like Paul and stay focused on the positive things in our lives and appreciate the great memories we have.  I thank God for giving me strength to get through difficult times and I am thankful for the great memories I have of the wonderful people God placed in my life.
