Greater Is He That Is In You

Verse of the Day: 1 John 4:4 

Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.        

We have been chosen and adopted by God as His own children. His unshakeable power lives in us and His Word is written on our hearts as we experience His truth. Because God lives in us we are overcomers and by faith we have the victory over evil.

Heavenly Father, Thank you Lord for choosing me as your very own. Thank you for your unshakeable power that lives in me. I know in my heart that I can face anything this world throws at me because I am more than a conqueror and I have the victory through Jesus Christ my Lord and Savior. Amen

Understanding God’s Word

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 119:130     

The unfolding of Your words gives light; it gives understanding to the simple.

If you read the Holy Bible in faith, studying the truth, asking God to give you understanding of what was, what is and what is to come – the Lord, by his grace, will enlighten your mind and soul. He will help you understand the scriptures, His plan for salvation and He will give you spiritual peace and comfort. God’s word gives understanding to all who earnestly seek Him and are willing to learn.

Worship in Spirit and in Truth

Verse of the Day:  John 4:23 

But the time is coming—indeed it’s here now—when true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and in truth. The Father is looking for those who will worship him that way.          

God is looking for people who will worship Him with all of their heart and soul. He doesn’t want people who are just going through the motions or performing ceremonies. That’s not all He wants, your worship must also be in truth.  In order to worship the truth, we must know the truth which is found in God’s Word. Truth comes from the certainty in knowing who God is and by having a personal relationship with Him. The more you know who God is the more genuine your worship becomes. As you begin to worship God in spirit and in truth you will be transformed by His grace because worship changes everything!

Helping God’s People

Verse of the Day:  Hebrews 6:10      

God is not unjust; he will not forget your work and the love you have shown him as you have helped his people and continue to help them.       

The Lord blesses those who are a blessing to others. The love you show to God’s people as He puts it in your heart to help and encourage them is evidence of your faith and your love for Him. God is not unjust that He would ever forget the work you do or the love you show by helping and ministering to His people. Let God work through you to show love to His people as you grow spiritually and walk in His wisdom and truth. Any good deed you do with a right heart for His glory will not go unnoticed or unrewarded.

God’s Word is Right and True

Psalm 33 4

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 33:4

For the word of the Lord is right and true; he is faithful in all he does.

Every word, every promise, every part of God’s Word is right and true. His commands and precepts are righteous and fair. God’s Word is an awesome display of His power, wisdom and goodness. God’s Word exists for all people equally and its path leads to heaven and happiness. We can be confident and believe every Word because He is truly faithful in all He does and keeps every promise. God is good and never changes, we can rely on this truth. He is so deserving of all praise for His righteousness, truth and faithfulness.

God is Love

1 John 4 16

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.

God is love, is the first Bible verse I ever learned. I still remember the days when as a child I would walk to the front of our church, right up to the microphone set up for the children to recite Bible verses and proudly say, “God is love”. Let your first thoughts of the day be “God is love” and “God loves me”. When you come to really know and rely on these truths it will change the way you react to things that happen throughout your day. God loves you so much He sent His only Son to be your Savior. There is no greater love than the love God has for you. No matter what happens remind yourself that it’s going to be okay because God loves you. 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 unfailing love for you.

The Full Armor of God

Ephesians 6 11 2

Verse of the Day:  Ephesians 6:11

Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes.

Just like a soldier going into battle you too must put on our full armor. God has equipped you with all you need to stand up to the devil’s schemes and plans. He has given you the belt of truth, the breastplate of righteousness, the gospel of peace, the shield of faith, the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God. Stand your ground against evil with your feet firmly rooted in the Lord and fight the good fight of the faith. There is one other thing you need before you go into battle, you must recognize that you already have the victory through Jesus Christ.

 

God’s Love Endures Forever

Psalm 100 5

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 100:5

For the Lord is good and his love endures forever; his faithfulness continues through all generations.

God loves us and His love is forever not because of anything we have done or anything we will ever do, but because He is good. His lovingkindness for His people will continue forever. His timing is good, His mercy and grace are good, everything He does is good. His truth continues for all generations and He is faithful in keeping His promises. We can always count on Him because He never changes, even when we are faithless, He remains faithful. People may fail you but God never will.
