Today

TODAY’S VERSE

I focus on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead.
Philippians 3:13 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
It is hard to drive forward looking in the rear view mirror. If it was only like the good old days. If this never happened or if something else did happen. Regrets, resentments and remorse can keep us in their stronghold. Maybe it is basking in the glory of times past, reliving previous victories or times when all seemed better. This too is futility. God is the God of the present and as we live in the now we look ahead to where we are going. Learn from the past? Sure. But Paul wrote, “I press on to reach the end of the race and receive the heavenly prize for which God, through Christ Jesus, is calling us.” We press on, living each day at a time, trusting God in the now, encouraged not by what we left behind, but what lies ahead. Today, focus on the goodness of God in this day. Live it to the fullness. Rejoice in today and as we keep doing that each and every day, we will eventually receive the heavenly prize that God has for us. Alleluia.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear Father, forgive me for living in the past or worrying about the future. Help me live this day for Your glory. Help me press on through this day trusting in Your love and power, looking forward to the heavenly prize You have for me. In Jesus’ name.
AMEN

Treasure

TODAY’S VERSE

Yes, everything else is worthless when compared with the infinite value of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord.
Philippians 3:8 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
What do you treasure? Jesus said, “For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.” So if you want to know what you treasure, check your heart. What consumes you? What do you spend your time on? What do you talk about? What lights you up? Paul treasured His relationship with Christ. He wrote, “For his sake I have discarded everything else, counting it all as garbage, so that I could gain Christ and become one with him.” Knowing Christ was everything to Paul. He treasured it because it had value, it offered him more than anything this world could give him. He wrote, “I want to know Christ and experience the mighty power that raised him from the dead.” Today, the power, the presence and love of Christ is yours. How much do you treasure it?

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear Jesus, how much I treasure You. Consume my heart. I want to know You and experience Your resurrection power.
AMEN

Worship Him

TODAY’S VERSE

When a certain immoral woman from that city heard he was eating there, she brought a beautiful alabaster jar filled with expensive perfume. Then she knelt behind him at his feet, weeping. Her tears fell on his feet, and she wiped them off with her hair. Then she kept kissing his feet and putting perfume on them.
Luke 7:37-38 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
How much do you worship Jesus? Here was a woman who knew she was immoral but also knew Jesus. She came to worship Him bringing expensive alabaster oil with her. She entered the house and knelt behind Jesus pouring the oil, intermingled with her tears, on his feet. Some at the table were indignant, feeling it was a waste. They said it was worth a whole year’s wages and could have been given to the poor. This woman came to worship Jesus and it cost her a whole year’s wage, humiliation, scorn, ridicule and judgement. She risked being rejected by those in the house but somehow she knew she would be okay with Jesus. Maybe that is why she cried. She felt total acceptance, perhaps for the first time. She experienced a deep sense of self-worth, so much that gratitude overwhelmed her heart. She was forgiven much and she loved much. How much do you love God? How much have you been forgiven? Today, worship Him.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear Lord Jesus, I come now to worship You. You are worthy of all my praise and adoration. I give You thanks for Your love and forgiveness. Please accept from my heart my deepest gratitude.
AMEN

Talk With God

TODAY’S VERSE

My heart has heard you say, “Come and talk with me.” And my heart responds, “LORD, I am coming.”
Psalms 27:8

TODAY’S THOUGHT
Is it a wonder that God said that David was a man after His own heart? David shows why that was true in today’s verse. Here is a respondent David saying, “Lord I am coming.” He heard God and desired with all his heart to meet with Him. Now I would be tempted to give up and say, “I could never be like David” except for the fact this verse is really about God. It is God that made the overture to David. God said, “Come and talk with me.” It was God that loved David and desired David’s fellowship. The good news is that God desires the same with you! He wants you to come and talk with Him. David believed it and responded. What will you do?

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear Father, today I hear You say to me, “Come and talk with me.” Lord, my heart is responding, “Here I am Lord, I want to talk with You.”
AMEN

Forgiveness

TODAY’S VERSE

For the honor of your name, O LORD, forgive my many, many sins.
Psalm 25:11

TODAY’S THOUGHT
Who are we fooling? Our sins are many. David knew this. He wrote, “Lord, forgive my many, many sins.” David had a grasp on who he was and who God was. He knew his humanness, his tendency toward sin. He wrote, “I recognize my rebellion; it haunts me day and night. Against you, and you alone, have I sinned; I have done what is evil in your sight.” But David also knew God’s compassion and forgiveness. Again he wrote, “Have mercy on me, O God, because of your unfailing love. Because of your great compassion, blot out the stain of my sins. Wash me clean from my guilt. Purify me from my sin.” God’s forgiveness, His unfailing love allows us to see ourselves and our many, many sins against the background of His almighty sacrifice. Today, trust God. Get right with Him. He knows you, He loves you. Clear your conscience, confess your sins. He longs to forgive you and put you on the right path.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear Father, for the honor of Your name, forgive me for my many, many sins.
AMEN

Lord

TODAY’S VERSE

O LORD, I give my life to you.
Psalms 25:1 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
What do you give your life to? What have you committed yourself to for guidance and direction? The Psalmist cries out to God for help. He gives his life to the Lord who loves him and will guide him. He writes, “Show me the right path, O LORD; point out the road for me to follow. Lead me by your truth and teach me.” God loves you. He has provided a way for you to have eternal life. Why would he do any less for you here on earth? Today give your life to Him. He will guide you, He will lead you, He will teach you.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear Father, I surrender my will to You and give You my life. Guide me, lead me, teach me I pray.
AMEN

Peace

TODAY’S VERSE

You will keep in perfect peace all who trust in you, all whose thoughts are fixed on you!
Isaiah 26:3 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
It’s harder than it seems. You would think that having God, with all His love for us, all His power, all His knowledge, all His tremendous grace and mercy toward us we would be obsessed with Him! I mean we get excited about sports teams. We become obsessed with television programs. We spend countless hours in pursuit of our interests, hobbies and careers. We think these things will bring us peace, but in actuality they only help us cope with our lack of peace. They are treating the symptoms but never getting to the cause. Instead true peace comes when we make God our magnificent obsession. Isaiah shares that God will keep us in a deep mature peace as we trust in Him. As we fix our thoughts on Him we will become more and more aware of His presence. We will trust Him more, share with Him more, listen to His voice more. This becomes a relationship with God and it is in this continuous relationship that we will find peace. Today, make it the cry of your heart to know Him, to trust Him, to become conscious of Him all throughout the day.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear Father, I want to know You. I want to be conscious of Your presence in my life. Today, help me fix my thoughts on You.
AMEN
