Morning Rituals

Psalm 143 8

 

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 143:8

Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love, for I have put my trust in you.  Show me the way I should go, for to you I entrust my life.

 

As soon as I open my eyes and wake up each morning there are a two things that cross my mind:  God and coffee.  I’ve made it a habit to start my day with prayer, God’s Word and coffee and have come to depend on them to get me through the day. If you want a closer relationship with God get into the habit of praying and reading the Bible daily. All you need is a little bit of coffee and a whole lot of Jesus.

Isaiah 26 4.jpg

Trust in the Lord forever, for the Lord, the Lord himself, is the Rock eternal.

 

Building trust takes time.  The more you get to know God, the more your trust in Him will grow.  When you truly trust in God you will experience the perfect peace that comes from knowing that God is in control. Worrying doesn’t change a thing.  Instead, focus on getting to know God and let of go of worry and let God have His way in your life.

Peace for Your Stress

Philippians 4 7.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Philippians 4:7

And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

 

Everyone deals with stress now and then and some people deal with it on a regular basis. Meditating on God’s Word and praying plays a big part in dealing with these external stressors. We also need to do our part in taking care of our bodies by getting enough sleep, eating right and exercising.  Give your worries over to God. Put your trust and confidence in Him and let the Prince of Peace, Jesus Christ, bring His peace into your life.

God Will Fight for You

1 peter 2 23

 

Verse of the Day:  1 Peter 2:23

When they hurled their insults at him, he did not retaliate; when he suffered, he made no threats. Instead, he entrusted himself to him who judges justly.

 

It’s in our nature to protect ourselves when we are being attacked whether it’s insults, criticism, or lies. We want to fight back and retaliate with more of the same, we want to defend ourselves with our own arguments.  But when Jesus was being insulted and suffering He did not retaliate.  He put his trust in His Heavenly Father and let God’s will be done.  Put your trust in God and let Him be your defender, He will fight for you and He will judge your enemies accordingly.

God is Within You

psalm 46 5

 

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 46:5

God is within her, she will not fall

 

When God is in your heart and soul you can face anything that comes your way. Put your hope and trust in God and His mighty power to uphold you. God is a present help and you can turn to Him in all circumstances. You can turn to Him in times of trouble and let His grace and mercy lift you up. God is with you and will help you when you put Him first in your life. Have confidence that He is always within you.

Faith Over Fear 

Psalm 56 3

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 56:3

When I am afraid, I put my trust in you.

The devil will use fear to keep you from the plans God has for your life.  He knows if he keeps putting doubts and fear in your mind you will never step out in faith to achieve what God has planned for you.   Turn to God, put your trust in Him alone.  When you are afraid, step out in faith knowing that God will never lead you in the wrong direction.  Don’t let fear keep you from living the life God has planned for you.
