Verse of the Day: Galatians 5:16
So I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh.
It doesn’t matter what kind of temptation comes knocking at your door you can only get so far with your own willpower. You may be able to fight temptation yourself for a little while but soon willpower alone will not be enough. Instead of trusting your own willpower, turn to God and trust in his power. Instead of trying to do it on your own, walk by the Spirit and be victorious.
Verse of the Day: Deuteronomy 31:8
The LORD himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.
Everyone has days when they feel discouraged, when they feel like giving up or when they just have a really bad day. Those are the days when all you can do is turn to God and give it all to him. When you do, he reminds you that no matter what you’re going through he is with you and he’ll never leave you.
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.
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.
Verse of the Day: Psalm 34:8
Taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the one who takes refuge in him.
I invite you to experience the infinite goodness of the Lord. He is perfect in every way, the author of all good things, everything about Him is good and He loves you. Turn to Him, put your hope in Him, and put your trust in Him alone. He is the only one that can fill your heart with peace. You will never know what it’s like to have a relationship with the Lord until you make an effort to really experience Him for yourself through prayer and reading the Word of God.
Verse of the Day: Joshua 1:9
Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.
The Lord has commanded you to be strong and courageous. When you are afraid and discouraged turn to God. It doesn’t matter what it is, you don’t have to do it alone, He will be with you every step of the way. Trust in God and by His power He will give you the strength and courage to get through anything.
Verse of the Day: Psalm 30:11
You turned my wailing into dancing; you removed my sackcloth and clothed me with joy.
For whatever reason, be it sin, mourning, sickness or something else, if you are in a season of darkness turn to God. He is the restorer of light and goodness. By His grace He will turn your sorrow into joy, your brokenness into beauty, your wailing into dancing.
