Trust In His Love

TODAY’S VERSE
Let all who fear the LORD repeat: ‘His faithful love endures forever.’ In my distress I prayed to the LORD, and the LORD answered me and set me free. The LORD is for me, so I will have no fear. What can mere people do to me? Yes, the LORD is for me; he will help me.
Psalms 118:4-7

TODAY’S THOUGHT
What a marvelous passage. Our faith is in a God who knows. Our faith is in a God who is able. Our faith is in a God who cares. Our faith is in a God whose love endures forever! A tragic situation faced our family. My middle son was in critical condition after being hit by a car. My youngest son was shaken to the core and that night before he went to sleep asked me to pray with him. I prayed with all my heart. Afterward, as I was leaving he asked me, “That won’t really make a difference, will it?” I know he believed but he was as fearful as I was. I looked at him and said, “Yes, I believe it makes a difference. I always pray for God’s power. I ask for His power, but I trust in His love.” Like the Psalmist we too can pray in our distress and the Lord, He will answer. The Lord is for you, you can trust in His love.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Lord, I don’t know everything that is going on. I can’t see the future. I know I often waiver in my faith. But Lord, I know in my distress, I can call upon You. Help me with those special burdens I am carrying. Most of all, help me today to really trust in Your love. In Jesus’ name.
AMEN

Focus On Believing

TODAY’S VERSE
Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever! Amen.
Ephesians 3:20-21

TODAY’S THOUGHT
Which are you? The glass is half empty or the glass is half full? When it comes to reading today’s verse, it really makes a difference. It is easy to let our “half empty” attitude take a “glass is full and running over” type of verse we have today and bring it right down. What do you think when you read, “Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine”? Bill Johnson in his book When Heaven Invades Earth writes, “Faith is not the absence of doubt. It is the presence of belief.” So maybe today we shouldn’t worry about our doubts. It’s okay to have them. We all do. But for today, perhaps we should just focus on believing what God has said. He CAN do more than you and I can ever imagine. Ask God to help you believe this today. Give Him your worries, fears, and problems. Let Him control your life. He is more than able!

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, today, instead of trying to rid myself of doubt, I choose to believe You are able to do more than I can ever imagine. Today I choose faith. Today I choose to trust You. Today I choose Your love for me and will live in this hope, that You are alive and are able. In Jesus’ name.
AMEN

Where Do You Go?

TODAY’S VERSE
So let us come boldly to the throne of our gracious God. There we will receive his mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it most.
Hebrews 4:16

TODAY’S THOUGHT
Where do you go when there is trouble? There are a lot of choices. You can run to your friends. Friends who listen and understand and help you when you need it are a true blessing. But not all of us have those kinds of friends. Sometimes it is easier for us to simply run away. This can be in many different forms. It can be procrastination, you know, where we will always get to some solution later. It could be an addiction, to simply anesthetize ourselves from the situation. It could be plain running full steam ahead, ignoring any problems, focusing on achievement or materialism. Yet, there is a better way. Today’s scripture gives us another option. One that makes good sense. The author of Hebrews writes, “So let us come boldly to the throne of our gracious God. There we will receive his mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it most.” You notice the verse doesn’t say to be timid. It says to “boldly” come to God. And what do we get when we find ourselves in His presence? Mercy and grace. Two of the most beautiful words in all of the Bible. Mercy, not giving us what we deserve. Grace giving us what we do not deserve. Thank God today that He has His mercy and grace available for you.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, thank You that You have promised me that I can come boldly to You anytime – day or night. I can come boldly with my problems, my issues, my concerns and weaknesses. I come to You now, dear Father. Hear my needs, hear the deep inner thoughts and concerns of my heart. Please make me conscious of Your wonderful mercy and grace that You have promised to me. In Jesus’ name.
AMEN

Open My Eyes

TODAY’S VERSE
And Elisha prayed, “O LORD, open his eyes so he may see.” Then the LORD opened the servant’s eyes, and he looked and saw the hills full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha.
II Kings 6:13-17

TODAY’S THOUGHT
This a great Biblical story. The King of Aram was at war with Israel and every time they made a military move, God told Elisha, who told the Israelites. It was so bad that the King of Aram thought he had a spy in their midst. But the officers told the King, “No, Elisha is telling the Israelites our plans.” So the King was angry and asked his armies to go get Elisha. Elisha’s servant saw the army approaching on horses and chariots, surrounding their camp and he was scared to death. But Elisha saw a heavenly reality that made all the difference in the world. He was at peace and asked God to give the servant the same perspective. The Lord opened the servant’s eyes to the heavenly reality of their situation. Can you imagine how he must have felt? It would be like a person who was raised in the deep jungle seeing a modern city for the first time. Telephones, videos, automobiles, restaurants, airplanes. How different the two worlds are. Yet, what do we know of heaven? What do we know of God’s power available to us? What do we know of His infinite riches and power toward us who believe? It made all the difference when the servant saw the heavenly resources there on his behalf. Would it make a difference in your day today if you knew more about the Heavenly reality waiting to bust in on yours? I pray for you what Elisha prayed, “May God open your eyes so you may see.”

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, I confess, I spend much of my time blind to Your presence. Blind to Your power. Blind to Your heavenly reality all around me. Help me Lord, to see all of Your vast love and resources You have available for me today. In Jesus’ name.
AMEN

Show Me The Way

TODAY’S VERSE
Trust in the LORD with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take.
Proverbs 3:5-6

TODAY’S THOUGHT
Is the Bible just an ordinary book to you? Just some old religious sayings? Perhaps a few good stories, but really nothing to take too seriously? If so, let me challenge you to reconsider your view. You see, there is a wisdom that only comes from God and it comes from reading and meditating on His word and committing yourself to what it says. This wisdom is the secret to life! Today, heed what Solomon is saying when he writes, “Trust in God and don’t lean on our own understanding.” Pay attention to what God’s word says, listen closely, let it penetrate deep into your being. If you do this God will bless you. Your reading and understanding will help you guard your heart and determine the course of your life. Start today, make a commitment to read and study the Bible.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, You know my life, my situation, and circumstances. You know my emotions and my thoughts. I need You. I need Your wisdom and understanding. Let Your words that I read sink down deep into my soul and guide me, protect me and give me direction. In Jesus’ name.
AMEN

Come To God With Confidence

TODAY’S VERSE
This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. And if we know that he hears us—whatever we ask—we know that we have what we asked of him.
I John 5:14-15

TODAY’S THOUGHT
Confidence. There are many different ways you can approach God. You could be fearful, apathetic, humble, arrogant, with faith or without it, confused or assured, angry or in worship. You can also come to God with full assurance and confidence that He loves you and will answer your prayer. Leanne Payne in her book Listening Prayer writes, “In a day when we are out of touch with the soul and its way of communicating and interacting with God, we have to learn anew how to receive from Him.” She continues, “It is really simple. Through an act of the will we release our faith in confidence and receive what we have asked for, thanking God in advance for the answer.” This happens as we dialog with God about His will. “What is it You want, Father?” we ask. And when He answers (and He will in His time), then we can go to God in confidence knowing He will do His will. John says it this way, “This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. And if we know that he hears us—whatever we ask—we know that we have what we asked of him.” What do you want to ask God for today? Come to Him in confidence and talk to Him about it.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, help me learn to be more intimate with You and to have confidence, even today, in who You are and how much You love me. Lord, You know my situation. You know my needs. Help me to know what Your will is in these matters so I can pray accordingly and thank You in advance for Your answer. In Jesus’ name.
AMEN

Praise Him

TODAY’S VERSE
Praise the LORD! Praise God in his sanctuary; praise him in his mighty heaven! Praise him for his mighty works; praise his unequaled greatness! Let everything that breathes sing praises to the LORD! Praise the LORD!
Psalms 150:1-2, 6

TODAY’S THOUGHT
We often have so many pressing issues that it is easy to come to God and pour out our requests without saying anything of praise toward God. But when we forget to praise God, it is us who misses a blessing. It is ironic, we come to bless God with our praises and we are blessed in the process. Derek Prince once said, “If we only have ten minutes to pray, eight of them should be spent in praise!” There is so much we can praise God for today. Praise Him for His power. Praise Him for His glory. Praise Him for His provision. Praise Him for His love toward us. Praise Him for His death and resurrection. Praise Him for being our Almighty God. Who are we that God would allow us to even utter His name in praise, yet He does. He desires our praise and gratitude. Today, lift up your voice in praise to Him. Let everything that is in us, PRAISE THE LORD!

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, I confess I have not praised You as I should. I become so occupied with this life that You have given me. So busy that I forget to stop and thank You for all You have done for me. So busy that I forget to praise You for who You are. Today, I come to say, “Thank-you!” Thank You for dying on the cross for my sins. Thank You for all Your provision. Thank You for loving me and taking care of me. I stop now to praise You for Your majesty and power, for Your Holiness and unfailing love. I love You, Father God, and praise You today in the name of my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
AMEN
