More than Conquerors

Romans 8 37 2

Verse of the Day:  Romans 8:37

No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.

Romans 8:35 poses the question: Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? The answer my found in Romans 8:37-39. We are to have confidence in knowing that no tribulation, suffering, persecution, absolutely nothing can separate us from the love of Christ.  His love is not earned so it cannot be lost, it is undeserved and limitless. We are not just conquerors over sin and despair, we are more than conquerors in all things through Jesus Christ because even when we go through these things our faith is made stronger. We have the victory through the blood of the Lamb.

Pour Out Your Heart

Lamentations 2 19

Verse of the Day:  Lamentations 2:19

Arise, cry out in the night, as the watches of the night begin; pour out your heart like water in the presence of the Lord.

God wants you to come to Him with the good and the bad. It’s easy to bring the good through praise and thankfulness but we also need to bring our problems and our troubles to Him. It doesn’t matter if it’s anger, frustration, confusion, pain, suffering, lay it all at His feet. Come to Him with a sincere heart, don’t hold back. Pour your heart out to God and tell Him exactly how you feel and what you need. He already knows what you’re going through but He wants you to bring it all to Him. God loves you and He hears every prayer. Trust in Him at all times, you people; pour out your hearts to Him, for God is our refuge. (Psalm 62:8)

Speak Up

Proverbs 31 8.jpg

Verse of the Day:  Proverbs 31:8

Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute.

Speak up for the people who have no voice.  Stand up for the oppressed.  It’s our duty to help those who cannot help themselves.  We ought to go into the world and donate our time, money and resources for the poor, the destitute and the suffering.  We must be protectors of those who are unable to plead their own cause. It’s up to us to share the Gospel and demonstrate the teachings of Jesus to the people so they too may know the mercy, forgiveness and love of God.

My Comforter

Isaiah 49 13

Verse of the Day:  Isaiah 49:13

Shout for joy, you heavens; rejoice, you earth; burst into song, you mountains! For the Lord comforts his people and will have compassion on his afflicted ones.

The world attempts to keep you content but the only place to find real comfort and compassion is in the Lord. Shout for joy and rejoice because God loves and cares for His people. He doesn’t want you to suffer or be discouraged. Pour out your heart in prayer, for the Lord will never forsake you. He will have compassion on you and His unfailing love will comfort you and give you peace.

Courage to Follow Jesus

Philippians 1 20

 

Verse of the Day:  Philippians 1:20

I eagerly expect and hope that I will in no way be ashamed, but will have sufficient courage so that now as always Christ will be exalted in my body, whether by life or by death.

 

Because of God’s grace we do not have to be ashamed of any suffering we may encounter for Christ.  We must have the courage to follow Jesus and declare Him to be the Son of God, the Messiah and the Lord of our lives. (Romans 10:9) Having courage also means being obedient to His teachings. (John 8:31) Be courageous and determined to always do your very best to obey the call of God in all circumstances.
