Worries

TODAY’S VERSE
Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you.
I Peter 5:7

TODAY’S THOUGHT
What do you do with your worries? We all have them. We can’t help what comes into our head but once there, we have choices. The trouble is worry feels productive. It feels like we are attempting to solve something. It feels like we are getting close to resolution but all we really are doing in ruminating over and over again all these negative scenarios in our head. Situations can cause us to be concerned, shocked, apprehensive, cautioned and even horrified. But after our initial reaction we can reflect, review the situation and take action. Worry however just worries. It doesn’t stop, it goes on and on, unless we do something to make it quit. We need something bigger than our worries to take care of them. That is why Peter says you can give all your worries and cares to God. Why? Because He is God, He is big enough! And because He cares about you! Can you feel your body relax? He cares for you. Can you feel the worries leave? How wonderful. Today, don’t hang on to your worries one more second. Give them to God. He cares about you.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear Father God. Thank You for caring so deeply for me. I am bringing all my worries and cares to You. Help me to leave them there.
Amen

A New Sphere

TODAY’S VERSE
You must grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
2 Peter 3:18 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
Peter is saying that we need to grow “in” grace. The normal use of the word “in” meant like walking through a door. You go into another room. You come and you go. But Peter is suggesting much more!!! Peter writes that we are to grow in Grace. He uses the other word for “in.” A word that means moving and living in a whole new sphere of reality. Peter is saying that as a Christian even though we are on earth we are living in another sphere or reality of God’s grace and knowledge. Grace is God’s favor, affection, mercy and thoughts toward you. Knowledge is “experientially knowing” something. It is a working knowledge gleaned from personal experience! Today, stop and realize where you live. You live in a spiritual sphere in which you grow in and have first-hand knowledge of God’s favor, affection and mercy. Welcome to this new world!

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear Father, thank You for inviting me to live in this new sphere of grace and knowledge. Help me enter into it fully and grow and mature in this atmosphere of Your favor, affection and mercy.
Amen

Renewed

TODAY’S VERSE
That is why we never give up. Though our bodies are dying, our spirits are being renewed every day.
II Corinthians 4:16

TODAY’S THOUGHT
For much of life God has ordained two processes. Renewal and maturity. We were not meant to stay static. We were meant to grow as His followers and mature. But this maturity does not come easy. It comes from a daily spiritual renewal process. We mature as we come to Him and daily learn, emotionally, spiritually and experientially. Sometimes this is an exhilarating experience full of joy and wonder. Other times it can be through pain, disappointment and sorrow. The good news is whether good or bad, as we come to Him He will renew our spirit day by day. Today, don’t rob yourself of maturity. Come to Christ. Let Him renew your spirit.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear Christ, I want to be like You. Help me mature. Help me this day be renewed in my mind, spirit and heart. In Jesus’ name.
AMEN

Not Alone

TODAY’S VERSE
So then, since we have a great High Priest who has entered heaven, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold firmly to what we believe. This High Priest of ours understands our weaknesses, for he faced all of the same testings we do, yet he did not sin. 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.”
Hebrew 4:14-16 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
How is it we end up believing we are so alone? Why do we feel we must face our problems by ourself? With Christ, nothing could be farther from the truth. We have been invited to come boldly to the very presence of God. The truth is that Jesus knows what we are going through. He understands the trials and temptations that we face. He knows the emotional struggles we have. And He knows how to get through them. You are not alone. You can come to Him and receive the grace and help you need just when you need it. Today, come boldly to Jesus.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear Lord, I come to You today, knowing that you know all about me and my situation. Help me through this day. Give me the mercy and grace that you promised to give me when I need it the most. In Jesus’ name.
AMEN

Faith

TODAY’S VERSE
How can you show me your faith if you don’t have good deeds? I will show you my faith by my good deeds.
James 2:18 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
It is easy to say we have faith in God. The test however is whether our faith is affecting our everyday living? Although the dictionary and most people treat faith as a noun, James is suggesting that faith is really a verb. Faith without action he says is dead. The faith that James is writing about isn’t something we “have” but something we “live.” Faith that we have, displays itself every once in a while, especially if something troubling happens. But the faith James is writing about is an everyday realization that God is with us and we are living for Him. It affects our actions. James asks a great question. If your life isn’t being lived out for Jesus in the way you love others, then is it really faith? Today, let’s not “have” faith. Let’s “live” it. May our faith bless all those around us.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear Father, forgive me for my dead faith. Help me really believe in you and live my life with a faith that is vibrant and blessing all those around me.
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

TODAY’S THOUGHT
How are you effected by stress? We all have stress in our life. We have situations that get us down, emergencies that distract us and cause us to fret. Situations that anger us, others cause us grief. We become full of worry and anxiety. What are we to do? Isaiah has a word for us. It is as if God had him look ahead to today and says to us, “God will help you with all your stress. He will give you a peace that passes all understanding, if you do one thing. Keep your thoughts fixed on God.” What a precious promise. What love and concern for us. Today, stop and focus on the Lord. When stress comes keep your eyes on Him. You are not alone. He will keep you in peace.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear Father. Help me keep my mind on you. I ask You to keep my heart and my mind at peace today.
AMEN

Promises

TODAY’S VERSE
Stay here for now, and may the LORD help you keep your promise.
I Samuel 1:23 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
We live in a world that doesn’t honor its word. This is especially true of a promise that was made with the wrong motives; a promise that is more like “let’s make a deal” than it is a serious commitment. We either want something and will manipulate with a promise in order to get it; or we try to avoid certain consequences and use promises as currency to buy our way out of trouble. But this is not the way Jesus taught us. He said to make our “Yes” a “Yes” and our “No” a “No”. Yes, it is easy to fail at keeping our promises even when we have the best of intentions. There are so many distractions, so many important things vying for our attention that we can begin to serve the “urgent” at the expense of the promises we made. Integrity is key to the Christian life and we need to repent when we stray from keeping our word. Today, let us repent of our unkept promises and recommit ourself to follow through on what we say we will do.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, help me keep my word. Help my “Yes” be a “Yes” and my “No” a “No”. Might I serve You by keeping my promises.
AMEN
