Gentle and Humble

Matthew 11 29

Verse of the Day:  Matthew 11:29

Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.

If you’re feeling burdened, troubled, angry, out of control or your life is in turmoil turn to Jesus, He is the answer. Jesus is inviting you to take His yoke. In other words, humbly surrender to God’s will, be obedient to His Word and let Him guide and direct your life. Jesus was a great example of what it is to be gentle and humble. Gentleness = kind, mild in temperament; Humbleness = respectful, showing a modest estimate of one’s own importance.

Let Go, Let God

Psalm 46 10

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 46:10

Be still, and know that I am God

Often, we are tempted to try and work everything out for ourselves but what we really need to do is to just let go and give it all to God.  When you are struggling to make things work out the way you want them to just stop, be still, wait patiently without fear, abide in His Word and let God’s will be done. Acknowledge that He is God and He is in control. He knows you, He knows your troubles and He will make all things work for the good of those who love Him. (Romans 8:28) Surrender your need to control the situation and let God be in charge of your life, His ways are always better and He is always faithful to His Word and His promises.

God Has the Answers

Proverbs 3 5 (2)

 

Verse of the Day:  Proverbs 3:5

Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding.

 

We won’t always know the answer to why we are going through something or why things are turning out the way they are, we just need to trust the one who does.  God knows everything from the beginning to the end. He knew you before you were born and He knows the plans He has for your future.  Trust in the Lord with all your heart, surrender to His will and know that He loves you and everything He does is out of love for you.

Put Jesus First

Colossians 1 17

 

Verse of the Day:  Colossians 1:17

He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together.

 

Before the world began, God made a way for us to be saved through Jesus Christ.  If you feel like things are falling apart put Jesus first in your life.  Everything else will fall into place and will be held together by His power.

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.

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.

Living by Faith

galatians 2 20

 

Verse of the Day:  Galatians 2:20

I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. And the life that I now live in my body, I live by faith, indeed, by the faithfulness of God’s Son, who loved me and gave himself for me.

 

Are you living a life focused on yourself, a life without purpose or peace?  In order to get to where God wants you to be you have to leave your old life and your old ways in the past. Surrender your life to God and focus on the future He has planned for you. Christ now lives in you and you don’t have to live by your own power or strength anymore. Start living by faith in Jesus Christ who loves you so much He died on the cross for you.
