TODAY’S VERSE

“But when the Father sends the Advocate as my representative—that is, the Holy Spirit—He will teach you everything and will remind you of everything I have told you.”
John 14:26 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
It is easy to get in the habit of reading the “word of God” without getting a “word from God.” There is a big difference. The Pharisees knew the word. Satan quoted it. But God’s word is meant for more than just reading. Paul wrote in a letter to Timothy, “All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right.” Jesus said that He gave us the Holy Spirit in order to personalize His word to each of us. He said, “He will teach you everything.” The author of the Hebrews wrote, “For the word of God is alive and powerful. It is sharper than the sharpest two-edged sword, cutting between soul and spirit, between joint and marrow. It exposes our innermost thoughts and desires.” So when we come to the word of God, let us remember that we are coming to God and ask Him to speak to us, move in our heart and show us His will. Today, don’t settle for the word of God, get a word from God.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, I need Your wisdom. I need Your instruction. I need Your assurances. As I come to Your word, open my eyes, open my heart that I may hear Your voice and understand what You want to say to me.
AMEN

TODAY’S VERSE

“Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.”
I Peter 5:7 (NIV)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
So often you hear the admonitions: “Don’t fear,” “Stop worrying” or “Quit being afraid.” These are helpful and can often deter us from pursuing a downward spiral of despair. But Peter had a better way. Instead of clipping back the weeds of fear and worry, Peter is recommending that t you pull all our anxiety out by the roots and bring them to Jesus. Not a few or some, all! And why can you do that? Peter says, “Because Jesus cares for you! It is like the old hymn says, “Is there a heart over bound by sorrow? Is there a life weighed down by care? Come to the cross each burden bearing. All our anxiety leave it there. All your anxiety, all your care, bring to the mercy seat leave it there; never a burden He cannot bear, never a friend like Jesus.” Today, turn to Jesus. Cast all your anxiety on Him because He cares for you.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, You know all about my worry and fear. I come to You now and cast all my anxiety at Your feet. Instead of taking it back, help me take Your love with me instead.
AMEN

TODAY’S VERSE

“And you also are among those who are called to belong to Jesus Christ.”
Romans 1:6 (NIV)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
I never tire of hearing the word “called.” There are many things that I would choose in life. But how many choose me? What about you? How many times have you waited to see if your name was on a list? Have you ever had to wait to see if you would be picked to play a game in gym? There are many things you and I think we need to do in order to please God, but instead God beats us to it and accepts us first. God has called us to belong to Him. This is it. The big “it” that all of mankind is starving for. Our calling to follow Him is the essence of our purpose and being in this world. Make no mistake; God has called your name. Today, follow Him.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, thank You for giving me life. Thank You for calling me to yourself. Thank You for giving me purpose and meaning. Help me live this and each day for You.
AMEN

TODAY’S VERSE

“Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.”
Psalms 23:4 (NIV)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
Fear can cripple us. It is an insidious cancer of the mind that eats away at our opportunities in life. Why is this? I am convinced that it is because we fear with our inner-child or some other traumatized part of ourself. We have unresolved memories that need to be dwelt with by Christ. Now it is true that we are to have “child-like” faith, but nowhere are we taught to have child-like fear. This is an immature state-of-mine. All we see is the terror and fear that we had when we were more defenseless. Instead, when we come to our own valley of the shadow of whatever it is we fear, we are to face our situations as mature adults looking through the eyes of Jesus. As an adult in Christ we are not defenseless. We have all the power and love of Christ at our disposal. We can trust Him and step out in faith. Today, examine your own fears. Ask Christ to come and comfort you like He did David. Ask Him to renew your mind and to heal that part of you that is in bondage. Remember, He is with you, He will comfort you.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, You know me. I come now and lay my fears at Your feet. Heal me, help me, I pray. In Jesus’ name.
AMEN

TODAY’S VERSE

“Being strengthened with all power according to his glorious might so that you may have great endurance and patience.”
Colossians 1:11 (NIV)

“But the fruit of the Spirit is – patience!”
Galatians 5:22 (NIV)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
Patience can be a very difficult to come by but what a powerful attribute to have. Think of all that could be done if we acted with patience instead of haste and pressure. Think of all the aggravation that could have been avoided had we waited just a little longer. Think of all the headache and tension that could have been obsolete had we just had patience. Patience is a sign of God’s presence in our life. It is the result of His Spirit living in us, strengthening us with His might! Today, when difficulties come, when plans get foiled or someone else’s urgency becomes our emergency, let us ask for patience. Let us cry out to God for strength and endurance and by His grace, patience will be a fruit of the Spirit that is alive in us.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, thank You for Your presence in my life. Thank You for the strength and endurance that You give me. I pray that it will produce the patience that I need.
AMEN

TODAY’S VERSE

“Make thankfulness your sacrifice to God.”
Psalm 50:14 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
Why do we make it so hard? What is it about God that we think we have to earn His love? It’s not that God wants us to. He doesn’t. The fact is we can’t! However, there is something deep inside of us that wants to feel we have worth, and the only way we know to do that is to try and “earn” it. But what if you could see it another way? What if you started to believe that you have intrinsic worth? That you were created by a God that saw you as something with great value? That He took great pleasure in creating you? What if you started to believe that God loves you because you are you! If you could start to grasp that, then you would begin to understand today’s verse. God wants your worship of thanksgiving. He doesn’t want sacrifices to appease Him, or to bring you into a right relationship with Him. He wants you to realize that as a Christian you are already His child and that you have all the love and acceptance by Him that you would ever need. All He desires is “thanks”. A heartfelt thank you, this is the offering He desires. Today, let the love of Christ fill your heart and bring a deep sense of appreciation and gratitude, a true sacrifice of thankfulness, to Him.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, I come and bow before You. I am humbled by Your love for me. Today I come to say Thank-You. Thank you for all Your love.
AMEN

TODAY’S VERSE

“The commandments of the LORD are right, bringing joy to the heart.”
Psalms 19:8 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
The Bible is a precious gift from God. Divinely inspired, it was written in order that we might know how to live. The Bible inspires, convicts, guides, warns and teaches us. David wrote that believing what the Bible says is right and following its precepts brings joy to our heart.
He then goes on to share in a very poetic way, how valuable the word of God is. He writes, “The commands of the LORD are clear, giving insight for living. – The laws of the LORD are true; each one is fair. They are more desirable than gold, even the finest gold. They are sweeter than honey, even honey dripping from the comb. They are a warning to your servant, a great reward for those who obey them.” Today, spend time with God and His word and let it bring a deep joy into your heart.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, thank You for Your word. Speak to me, guide me, correct me, inspire me. Teach me how to live. Give me a deep and lasting joy deep down in my heart.
AMEN

TODAY’S VERSE

“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.”
Galatians 5:22-23 (NIV)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
We live so much of life as if it all depended on us. We must achieve. We must make people happy. You know, “If it’s going to be, then it’s up to me!” mentality. Now, I believe in personal responsibility and accountability but we need to realize that we cannot live the kind of life Christ wants us to without Him. He is the one that came to give us a full life. It is “with” Him. We need to add faith to whatever we do by bringing God into the picture. We do this by changing “me” to a “we”. It is “Christ in me” that makes all the difference in the world. Jesus said that He came to give us a life that is to the full. He didn’t come to make us busy, or famous, or rich, or any other obsession that we may have. He came to give us the fruit of the Spirit: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. This is what He wants our life to be built on. This is the life He desires for us. Today, let’s quit striving and start living. Come to Jesus and let Him fill you with His Holy Spirit. Ask Him to produce the “fruit of the Spirit” in your life.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, I ask that You would produce the fruit of the Holy Spirit in my life. Help me live for You in Your strength and Your power.
AMEN

TODAY’S VERSE

“You must be compassionate, just as your Father is compassionate.”
Luke 6:36 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
Jesus was our example. For over two thousand years people have heard the story of His amazing Love. Jesus commanded us to be loving, full of compassion, mercy and pity for a lost and broken world just like He and His heavenly Father were. Love is more than a duty, it is our calling. It is the result of knowing Christ. It is the byproduct of being filled with the Holy Spirit. St. Paul defined this kind of love when he wrote, “Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged. It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance.” Today, ask Christ to fill you with that kind of love and compassion. Ask the Holy Spirit to empower you to live a life of love.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, I am helpless to live the life of love you have called me to without You. Fill me with Your Spirit. Convict me, forgive me, empower me to love the way You love.
AMEN

TODAY’S VERSE

“So your servant has found courage to pray to you.”
1 Chronicles 17:25 (NIV)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
Have you ever needed courage to pray? I have. Praying is all about courage. It is looking at your situation and saying, “I will exercise my faith and trust that God is all that He says He is and that He will answer my prayer.” Praying is courage because you are trusting God and giving up your right to try to do everything on your own. It is courage, because it would be easier to run and hide instead of facing your situation and trusting God. It is courage, because you are full of doubts and fears and yet you choose to exercise faith. The Apostle John wrote something that changes everything. He wrote, “Love has no fear, because perfect love expels all fear.” So today, when you are stuck, frustrated, afraid or confused, focus on the perfect love God has for you and be like David. Find the courage to pray.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, I believe, help my unbelief! Give me hope and faith so when struggles come, I will stop and have the courage to pray to You.
AMEN
