TODAY’S VERSE

Then I pray to you, O LORD. I say, “You are my place of refuge. You are all I really want in life.”
Psalms 142:5 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
It’s not just what you pray that counts. The reason you pray is just as important. God loves you and knows your need before you pray. Listen to the despair and emotion that David was feeling when he prayed today’s verse. He was hiding in a cave and wrote, “I cry out to the LORD; I plead for the LORD’s mercy. I pour out my complaints before him and tell him all my troubles. I look for someone to come and help me, but no one gives me a passing thought!” God heard more than David’s words. He felt David’s needs and David knew it. That is why David could write, “You are my place of refuge. You are all I really want in life.” The truth is, God is all we need in life! Today, know that God is your place of refuge. He knows your circumstance, turn to Him.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear Father, I sometimes feel like no one gives me a passing thought. I start to despair, but You gently bid me come, and I come to You. Truly, You are my refuge. Today, I can say, “You are all I really want in life.”
AMEN

TODAY’S VERSE

Let us go right into the presence of God with sincere hearts fully trusting him.
Hebrews 10:22 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
Today’s verse is amazing. It is mind boggling! God has made a way that we can go right into His very presence and fellowship with Him. What a marvelous plan. A Holy and Just God, who creates us as human beings with all our imperfections, sin and outright rebellion also creates a way, through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ that we can come into His presence and have intimate fellowship with Him. He writes, “We can boldly enter heaven’s Most Holy Place because of the blood of Jesus.” Read it again. Not just enter, but boldly enter heaven’s Most Holy Place. Today, you have been invited. You have an open invitation to visit the MOST Holy Place. You, today, can go right into the very presence of God, fully trusting that He wants you there.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear Father, thank You for making a way that I can go right into Your presence. Thank You that I can fully trust that You want me there. I come now; make me conscious of Your very presence I pray. In Jesus’ name.
AMEN

TODAY’S VERSE

Jehoshaphat was terrified by this news and begged the LORD for guidance.
II Chronicles 20:3 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
What do you do when you are terrified? It is easy to panic, fret and withdraw. King Jehoshaphat was told that three different armies joined together to take siege of Jerusalem. The Bible says he was terrified. But instead of running, he decided to seek the Lord. He prayed, “O LORD, God of our ancestors, you alone are the God who is in heaven. You are ruler of all the kingdoms of the earth. You are powerful and mighty; no one can stand against you! – Whenever we are faced with any calamity such as war, plague, or famine, we can come to stand in your presence before this Temple where your name is honored. We can cry out to you to save us, and you will hear us and rescue us.” This reminds me of another verse, “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, lean not to your own understanding, in all your way submit to Him and He will direct your path.” Today, no matter what your circumstance, seek the Lord’s guidance.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear Father, You are aware of all my circumstances. There is nothing that surprises You or can separate me from Your love. Therefore I come to You with all worries and seek Your wisdom and direction. In Jesus name.
AMEN

TODAY’S VERSE

I want to know Christ and experience the mighty power that raised Him from the dead.
Philippians 3:10 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
What do you aspire? What desires do you have? It is an important question, but the answer is more important. The best desires are the ones that result in many benefits. What if you were granted a wish? Wouldn’t it make sense to ask for unlimited wishes? Paul’s desire was similar. He wanted something that would have a continuous impact on his life. He wanted to know Christ and experience the mighty power that raised Him from the dead! He wrote, “Yes, everything else is worthless when compared with the infinite value of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. For His sake I have discarded everything else, counting it all as garbage, so that I could gain Christ and become one with Him.” Today, desire what can change and guide all of your life, knowing Christ and the His resurrection power.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear Lord, please help me. I want to know Christ and experience the mighty power that raised Him from the dead.
AMEN

TODAY’S VERSE

The LORD will work out his plans for my life—for your faithful love, O LORD, endures forever.
Psalms 138:8 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
It is hard to make plans. There are so many variables. Life is complex and trying to execute the best of plans is often difficult. But here is one variable that we can count on. One that is steadfast and secure. An aspect that trumps all others. It is the fact that your Heavenly Father has His plans for you and will work them out. And here is another variable that will never change. God loves you! David wrote that God’s love for you will endure forever. No matter what happens, no matter what changes, God’s love for you is secure. So today, trust God. Talk to Him. Go over your plans with Him. Tell Him the desires of your heart. Know that He hears you. Know that He cares. But most of all, no matter what, know that He loves you deeply.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear Father, I am so glad I can put my trust in the plans You have for me. I thank You that I can know that You will work them out because of Your faithful love. In Jesus’ name.
AMEN

TODAY’S VERSE

But I am trusting you, O LORD, saying, “You are my God!” My future is in your hands.
Psalms 31:14-15 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
Fear and the future often go hand in hand. It is easy to let our imagination become full of worry and fear. So much so that we are not able to focus on the present moment. The Psalmist had the solution. He trusted God with His future. He chose to put all his worries, all his concerns, all his fear of the future into the loving hands of God. So today, whatever you are worried about in the future, whatever you may be dreading, give it to God. Trust Him with it. Say with David, “You are my God! My future is in your hands.”

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear Father, I come today and put my trust in You. You are my God and I know that my future is in Your hands.
AMEN

TODAY’S VERSE

Then Peter came to him and asked, “Lord, how often should I forgive someone who sins against me? Seven times?” “No, not seven times,” Jesus replied, “but seventy times seven!
Matthew 18:21-22 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
Forgiveness is the Hallmark of Christianity. Jesus came to earth so that we could be forgiven of all our sins. As He has forgiven us, we in turn are supposed to forgive others. I think Peter understood that principle. But there was something about the way Jesus lived that made him double check. He knew the love of Jesus was such that forgiving someone once would not do. So Peter came to Jesus with the seemingly impossible. He asked Jesus if we were to forgive the same person for the same behavior seven times. How shocking it must have been for Peter to hear Jesus’ response. “No, not seven times, but seventy times seven!” In one sentence Jesus put forgiveness at the top of the priority list. There is no room left for doubt. If we want to be like Jesus, if we want to follow Him, then we must forgive those who have offended us.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear Jesus, I cannot get my mind around the vastness of Your forgiveness for me. Neither can I fully comprehend forgiving someone as many times as You said. Fill my heart with Your compassion. Give me eyes to see what you see in others so I can be more like You.
AMEN

TODAY’S VERSE

I will climb up to my watchtower and stand at my guard post. There I will wait to see what the LORD says and how he will answer my complaint.
Habakkuk 2:1 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
Troubles were everywhere. The Babylonians were coming against the Jewish nation. They were brutal and Habakkuk the prophet was complaining to the Lord. “Lord aren’t you listening. Will you let them get away with this forever? Will they succeed forever in their heartless conquests?” But then he stopped and went to the watchtower to stand guard. And while at his post, he declared that he would wait to see how the Lord would answer him. Habakkuk knew the secret to listening to God. It is in asking the right questions. Rich Richardson in his book, ‘Experiencing Healing Prayer’ writes, “Learn to recognize that God is concretely present with you and then to ask good questions of this very present God. Then wait until he speaks into your heart and mind.” Jesus, Himself said, “I do nothing on my own but say only what the Father taught me.” Today, tell God your complaints, ask Him relevant questions then wait patiently for God to answer.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear Father, I confess that I have many complaints but I don’t wait for You to answer. Today I come with an open mind and heart. Speak to me I pray. In Jesus’ name.
AMEN

TODAY’S VERSE
May God give you more and more grace and peace as you grow in your knowledge of God and Jesus our Lord.
II Peter 1:2 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
Have you ever tired of someone who needs the same thing over and over again? It tries our patience when we are asked to extend forgiveness or grace to the same person multiple times. We ask ourself, “When are they going to get it right?” And yet God, who could easily ignore us and consider our very life of no significance, chooses to extend to us His grace and peace over and over again. He does this in the most marvelous way. He does it through our knowing Him. Peter uses a specific word for knowledge. It means a personal, experience knowledge. We just don’t know about God’s grace and peace, we know that He is intimately gracious and loving toward us. It is this living knowledge that gives us the peace over and over again. So today, walk with God. Know Him in a deep and personal way. Let Him graciously speak peace to your heart.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear Father, how I thank You for Your grace and peace in my life. You know and love me Lord and I desire with all my heart to know You better. Speak to me, teach me, fill me with Your Spirit and give me more and more of Your wonderful grace and peace. In Jesus’ name.
AMEN

TODAY’S VERSE
But you, O Lord, are a God of compassion and mercy,
slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love and faithfulness.
Psalms 86:15 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
Who is God to you? If I asked you to write down five attributes of God what would you write? Many would choose omniscient (all knowing), omnipresent (present everywhere), omnipotent (all powerful), immutable (unchanging), and Holy. It sounds like a list from a Theology Exam. That’s because we pride ourself in knowing about God. But David was a man after God’s own heart. He knew God. So when David made his list he wrote, God is compassionate, full of mercy, slow to get angry, filled with unfailing love and faithful. It is important to know about God but imperative to know Him. Today, meditate on God’s compassion, mercy, patience, love and faithfulness. Know Him like David did.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear Father, I know that you are Holy, all powerful, all knowing, unchanging and everywhere. But Lord, I also long to know You, to know your love, mercy, patience, compassion and faithfulness. I want to know You in a deeper more profound way. Here is my heart, Lord; fill me.
AMEN
