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.
Verse of the Day: Proverbs 20:24
A person’s steps are directed by the Lord. How then can anyone understand their own way?
God is at work in your life and is directing your steps for His purpose. You may be going through a hard time, but if you are faithful and obedient even when you don’t understand where He’s leading you, eventually, you will see the fruits of your labor.
Verse of the Day: 1 Peter 1:15-16
But just as he who called you is holy, so be holy in all you do; for it is written: “Be holy, because I am holy.”
God is holy and He is calling you do be holy in all you do. He wants you to be obedient to His Word and live according to His will in every aspect of your life. You might think, God is perfect and it is impossible for me to be as holy as God, but try anyway. It is better to shoot at the stars, even though your arrow never reaches them, than to fire it at the goal of a worldly life.
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.
Verse of the Day: Acts 4:13
When they saw the courage of Peter and John and realized that they were unschooled, ordinary men, they were astonished and they took note that these men had been with Jesus.
You don’t have to be an eloquent speaker to have the courage to tell people about Jesus. All you need is the willingness to share your own story. Just tell others what God’s love, goodness, grace and mercy has done in your life.
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. 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.
