Verse of the Day: Isaiah 26:4
Trust in the Lord forever, for the Lord, the Lord himself, is the Rock eternal.
Building trust takes time but the more you get to know God, the more your trust in Him will grow. When we think about a rock we think of something solid, strong, supportive and able to withstand pressure and when we call a person our rock they usually have the same attributes. God is the same way, you can always rely on Him and when you truly trust in God you will experience the perfect peace that comes from knowing that He is in control. Worrying doesn’t change a thing, instead of focusing on your problems put your efforts into getting closer to God. Let go of worry and let God have His way in your life.
Verse of the Day: Matthew 9:29
Then he touched their eyes and said, “According to your faith let it be done to you”
If you want God to do something big in your life this year you need to have big faith and big expectations. You have to pray with expectation and you have to expect to succeed. You aren’t putting faith in your own abilities but in the power of Jesus Christ. That doesn’t mean you will get everything you want but if you let fear keep you from trying in the first place you will definitely fail. Trust in God’s perfect will for you, step out in faith and let God be in control.
Verse of the Day: 2 Corinthians 12:9
My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.
God’s grace is enough to transform any situation. The more you trust in God the more His strength and power are evident in your life. When you are weak call on the Lord, He will strengthen and support you as you go through trials. He will comfort and refresh your spirit as you trust in Him. It may not be easy, but when you surrender to God, He will give you peace like no other. The world we live in has changed drastically and the enemy prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour but God’s saving grace gives you the victory.
Verse of the Day: Hebrews 12:1
Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us.
God wants you to run the race He planned and designed specifically for you. Don’t compare your race to anyone else’s race. You are uniquely you and that’s how God planned it to be. We are all running toward the same goal but each one of us needs to run our own race. Ask God for the strength and courage to get rid of anything that comes between you and Him. Keep your eyes on the prize, focus on God, seek His will for your life and don’t give up.
Verse of the Day: Psalm 119:105
Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.
Navigating this world is no easy task. At times you may feel like you’re lost or walking in the dark but God’s Word is here to guide you and to show you the way you should go. The Bible is a light shining in the darkness. The more you know and study God’s Word, the more you can apply it to your daily life. The more you apply it to your life, the clearer the path becomes. Let God guide you through life with His Word.
Verse of the Day: Ephesians 3:19
May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God.
We were created with a longing for Christ. We unsuccessfully try to fill this emptiness with people and things. But the truth is, only Jesus can make you whole. Only Jesus can satisfy your soul. It’s not enough to know who He is. You need to personally experience the love of Christ in your life.
Verse of the Day: 1 Corinthians 10:23
“I have the right to do anything,” you say—but not everything is beneficial. “I have the right to do anything”—but not everything is constructive.
Honestly, this is a hard lesson to learn for many, including myself. You may be determined to demand your rights as a citizen of this country but it’s not always what’s best for you as a Christian. Just because you have the right to do something doesn’t necessarily mean it’s right for you. Knowing the difference between your rights and what is right for you as a child of God comes with spiritual maturity.
