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 (NTL)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
Sometimes you just have to trust. You know what it’s like. You are sitting there and “bam” – the sky starts falling. You are caught off guard. Your head starts spinning and you feel sick to your stomach. Gasping for breath you start accessing your situation. For some, adrenalin starts to kick in and you hang on for the ride. For others you just go numb. Indecision, blocked from thinking, you just sit there. You too are on a ride, even if it doesn’t feel like you are going anywhere. And that is when you have to trust. Your thrown into an unwanted journey where you need your faith. It is a desperate time and we can’t depend on our own understanding. Instead, we must seek His will and God promises that He will show us which way to go. So today, hang on. God knows your situation. He knows and deeply cares. Come to Him. Quit trying to figure it out and trust. He is there. He will show you the way.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Lord, I surrender. I don’t know what to do. I don’t know which way to go. I will quit depending on my own understanding and will trust in You with all my heart. I need Your supernatural wisdom and guidance. Today I will seek Your will; please show me which way to go. In Jesus’ name.
AMEN

TODAY’S VERSE

“I was so foolish and ignorant—I must have seemed like a senseless animal to you. Yet I still belong to you; you hold my right hand.
You guide me with your counsel, leading me to a glorious destiny.”
Psalms 73:22-24 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
How true is the first part of this passage? And yet, as true as the fact that we behave foolishly and ignorant before God, like senseless animals, so is the fact that nothing can separate us from His love. We are still His. Even in our vilest condition we belong to Him and He extends His hand toward us. This is love. This is God’s love. It is so vast, so great that we could never fully comprehend it. It would be easier to explain when the end of eternity is, than to fully understand the love God has for us. Yet Paul asks God to, “give us the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep His love is.” So, even though we are reminded over and over again how foolish we have been, don’t stop there. Also remember that you will always belong to Him and He will continue to love you and guide you with His counsel. Praise be to God for His marvelous grace!

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear Father, how foolish and ignorant I have been before You. I have sinned over and over again. And yet, Your love for me and utter forgiveness has been unbelievable. I thank You for accepting me and continuing to guide and direct my paths.
AMEN

TODAY’S VERSE

“Let us think of ways to motivate one another to acts of love and good works.”
Hebrews 10:24 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
When you became a Christian, you became a follower of Christ. You became part of a world-wide fellowship of believers. This is more than a fraternity, it is a fellowship. But more than a fellowship, it is a mission. Our mission is to love others and to become involved in doing good. Love and doing good? It sounds too simple and too humanistic. Instead, we want to preach and teach and tell others about the love of God. While teaching and preaching is crucial, we miss the point. God has chosen some to teach, some to preach, but He has chosen us all to love. Why? Because our preaching and teaching will never be accepted by the world if it isn’t backed up with real living proof? And the proof that Christianity is real is in our actions, not our words. So if we want to see others around us come to know Christ, we must think of ways to motivate one another to acts of love and good works.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, help me live for you. Help me also think of ways to motivate others around me to join me in performing acts of love and good works.
AMEN

TODAY’S VERSE

“God is awesome in his sanctuary. The God of Israel gives power and strength to his people. Praise be to God!”
Psalm 68:35 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
There are a lot of things that we need to make it through this life. Sometimes it is hard to ascertain what exactly to ask for. Today’s verse sets good guidelines to help us when we pray. First, God is awesome. We have every right to ask for His miraculous power to intervene in our situations. He is able to heal, change circumstances or to move in the hearts of people. We need to ask and expect God to be awesome on behalf of His people. And yet there is another side. Today’s verse also says that God gives power and strength to His people. Although we can ask God to show His love to others, has He not chosen you and I to be His love in this world? Paul wrote, “We are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.” And who knew this better than David? After all it was David who picked up the stone and aimed at Goliath but God directed the stone. David said to Goliath, “You come to me with sword, spear, and javelin, but I come to you in the name of the LORD of Heaven’s Armies. – Today the LORD will conquer you and I will cut off your head.” God created you and I do be His ambassadors in this world and He gives us the strength and power to do His will. What a magnificent plan, God with His power working with and through us to do His will in this world. No wonder David ended saying, “Praise be to God!”

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, I can’t live the life You want me to without Your power. Nor do I want to try. I come today and ask You to guide me, direct me, and fill me with Your power and strength. And may You show Yourself strong through all I say and do. To You be all the Glory!
AMEN

TODAY’S VERSE

“But though I have rescued you from your misery and distress, you have rejected your God today and have said, ‘No, we want a king instead!”
I Samuel 10:19 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
How much do we really rely on God? How much do we really commune with Him and depend on Him for wisdom and direction? Think about it. We have pastors, radio preachers, counselors and bookstores full of books and magazines. That’s not counting conferences, colleges, Bible studies or Sunday School classes. With all this help, with all this representation of God, why would we ever need God at all? The people of God wanted a King. They wanted a physical representation of God, instead of God Himself. Now there is nothing wrong with having Pastors to teach and equip us, participating in small groups or enjoying Bible Study. The point is this. In all our searching, in all our seeking for answers, for all the comfort we are looking for, let us not forget God Himself.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, I am so sorry for putting other things above You. You are all my heart really needs. I come to You, my Lord and King, and ask that You would guide and direct me throughout this day.
AMEN

TODAY’S VERSE

“Let all that I am wait quietly before God, for my hope is in him.”
Psalms 62:5 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
It is so hard to wait sometimes. We are so driven. Burdens, passions, ambitions all take turns moving us from moment to moment, barely leaving us time to breathe. Even when we don’t have pressing needs, we fill our time with busyness. And when we aren’t hurried on the outside, we are spinning around and around inside, deep in the recesses of our mind. Thoughts out of control, emotions hammering us, voices commanding us to keep going, keep moving. All the while our soul is crying out for rest. And all the time God is waiting to give it to us. He desires us to stop and know Him. David knew this so he forced himself to stop and wait. He wrote, “Let all that I am wait quietly before God.” And why? Why did David do this? Because he knew God was his only hope of peace. He declared, “My hope is in Him.” It can be the same for you. Today choose to stop the madness. Stop the busyness. Choose to wait, wait quietly before God. Know Him, love Him, fellowship with Him. As you do, you will find your hope in God.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, I know I have been so busy that I haven’t taken the time I should to be with You. Help me change. Help me as I seek to wait for You. Help me as I attempt to quiet my heart. Help me hear Your voice. Help me see Your face. Help me find my hope in You.
AMEN

TODAY’S VERSE

“A final word: Be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on all of God’s armor so that you will be able to stand firm against all strategies of the devil. For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places. Therefore, put on every piece of God’s armor so you will be able to resist the enemy in the time of evil. Then after the battle you will still be standing firm.”
Ephesians 6:10-14 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
We need to remember that we are in a spiritual world and there is a war going on. We have an enemy of our very soul. But unlike a regular war, in this war we have an incredible advantage. Though there are powers against us, Paul tells us that we have the mighty power of God to help us every step of the way. Though we are in a fight, God has given us all the armor we need to be victorious. In actuality it is not our war, it is God’s and as we trust in Him, put on His whole armor, use His might and not ours, He assures us that when it is all over, we will be standing firm. Today, put all your trust in Him. Put on His armor and live today by faith; for this is true, the victory is ours.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Lord Jesus, I cannot win this spiritual battle in my own power. I ask for Your guidance to guide me and Your might to be my strength. Today I put on Your armor of righteousness, truth, the word, faith, the message of Your grace and gospel and the power of the Holy Spirit. Lead me in spiritual victory today I pray.
AMEN
