TODAY’S VERSE

Casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you.
I Peter 5:7 (ESV)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
It is so easy to worry. We start to believe lies about ourself and more importantly about God. We begin to doubt our own worth and His great love for us. With our mind full of false beliefs we make predictions, horrible predictions that cause us to worry and fret. Peter knew this all too well. He had worried when Jesus was taken to be crucified. He let his mind get the best of him and when Jesus was being tried and beat, Peter denied that he ever knew Him. He let his fear overshadow the love that Jesus had for Him. Years later, he wrote to the church and shared what he had come to know as true. He told them to cast all their worries and concerns once and for all on Jesus. Why? Because Peter had experienced the fact that Jesus deeply cares for him. Today, let this same affection that Jesus had for Peter fill you with courage. Come to Him and cast all your cares on Him.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear Jesus, thank You for Your love and affection for me. I come to You today because You care for me and I cast all my concerns and worries at Your feet.
AMEN

TODAY’S VERSE

The LORD is close to the brokenhearted; He rescues those whose spirits are crushed.
Psalms 34:18 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
David could write today’s passage with confidence. He had experienced the Lord being close to the brokenhearted. His own! His own heart had been broken many times. As a young man he was neglected and ridiculed by his own family. As a young adult he had to leave his home and best friend because he was unjustly hunted down like a common criminal. He lost a son at birth. Another son grew up hating him and fighting against him, eventually dying in war. Over and over David had to commit himself to God. When his spirit was crushed God would rescue him. Centuries later Jesus would say, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest.” Jesus promises that He will come and relieve and refresh our weary soul. David knew this about God. Isn’t it time we did? Today, bring Jesus all your heavy burdens. Open your broken heart to God. Give Him your crushed Spirit and let Him rescue you and refresh your soul.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear Jesus, I come to You with all my burdens. I give You my crushed spirit. Rescue me. Refresh my soul. Give me relief from my troubles I pray.
AMEN

TODAY’S VERSE

Letting the Spirit control your mind leads to life and peace.
Romans 8:6 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
What controls you? We have deep needs to belong, be loved, be understood, be secure and to have purpose and meaning. Unfulfilled, we are controlled by our emotions and passions. We try our own way to meet these deep needs but to no avail. Unfortunately we will never find what we really need in success, fame, fortune or other worldly pursuits. Instead the Apostle Paul tells us how to meet the core longings of our heart. It is through a relationship with God through Jesus Christ. When we become a Christian, God’s Holy Spirit invades our life leading us and guiding us in a new direction. It is a Spiritual journey and when we let God control our mind through the Holy Spirit the result is life and peace. Today, let your needs be met by God. Submit to Him and let His word and the Holy Spirit control your mind.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear Father, thank You for the Holy Spirit. Take control of my heart and mind. Help all my deep longings be found in You. I give you myself, give me Your life and peace. In Jesus’ name.
AMEN

TODAY’S VERSE

Dear friends, let us continue to love one another, for love comes from God. Anyone who loves is a child of God and knows God. But anyone who does not love does not know God, for God is love.
I John 4:7-8 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
When Jesus was asked what the most important commandment was, He said that it was to love God with all our heart, soul and mind and to love our neighbor as yourself. If this wasn’t enough to convince us that love in important, the Apostle John makes it abundantly clear by giving us a unique piece of theology. He defines God. He says, “God is love!” Not, “God wants us to love.” Not, “God desires love.” Not, “God loves us.” He says, “God is love and if anyone does not love, he or she does not know God.” Today, let us reset our priorities and love the way our God, who is love, loves.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear Father, You are love. I cannot even imagine what that really means. But I do know that You want me to love like You do. So today, dear Lord, help me to love others in the same way You love me.
AMEN

TODAY’S VERSE

For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’ – ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’Matthew 25:35-36, 40 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
Jesus used this parable to illustrate who His true followers were. He could have used any illustration. He could have said, “Those who know my word the best.” “Those that spend the most time in church.” “Those that pray the most.” But He didn’t. While those are all behaviors that we should take seriously, Jesus chose to immortalize those that helped the hungry, helpless, naked, sick and prisoners as His true followers. When are we going to get this? When are we going to see that this was foremost on Jesus’ mind? When are we going to see that this was what He personally exemplified? Let Jesus Himself tell us one more time, “Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.”

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear Jesus, Help me to be more like You. Help me to get involved in helping and loving those that are in need.
AMEN

TODAY’S VERSE

Immediately he spoke to them and said, “Take courage! It is I. Don’t be afraid.” Then he climbed into the boat with them, and the wind died down. They were completely amazed, for they had not understood about the loaves; their hearts were hardened.
Mark 6:50-52 (NIV)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
The disciples were in the boat crossing the Sea of Galilee. Jesus told them to go ahead of him. But a strong wind came up and they were straining, trying to make it across. They were afraid, and then terrified as Jesus approached the boat walking on the water. They were in the Abyss, fighting for their life, and now they thought they saw a ghost. All their sea faring superstitions and primal fears took over and their faith was nowhere to be found. This would not have been so bad, but they just saw Jesus feed five thousand people. They had seen Jesus do countless other miracles and yet the Bible says their heart was hardened. We often think of the “Hard heart” as someone who is jaded or bitter. They don’t care. This is true when referring to being calloused. But the word also means lacking spiritual perception. The disciples were sincere, they were following Jesus, but they were fighting a life of tradition, superstition and legalism. What are you fighting? What is keeping your heart hard? Today, ask God to give you spiritual perception that you may know and enjoy the truth of God’s love and grace.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, soften my heart that I may perceive and receive your truth. Speak to my heart I pray.
AMEN

TODAY’S VERSE

Your mistake is that you don’t know the Scriptures, and you don’t know the power of God.
Matthew 22:29 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
There are mistakes and then there are catastrophic errors! Some mistakes don’t have much of a consequence. We can live with them. But some errors can have crippling effects in our life. The sad thing is when we do not even realize we are making a mistake. A person in a coma would not know if they were not eating and starving to death. If not careful, we can slip into a spiritual coma. A coma that causes us to go through this life without knowing the scriptures or the power of God. It was the error of the Sadducees, the religious leaders of Jesus’ day. It is our mistake too when we become religious. God is not looking for religious leaders. He is looking for a relationship. A relationship where He can share with us His word and live through us with His power. Today, let us wake up and come alive in Him.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, stir me from my coma. I do not know Your word like I should or Your power. Revive me, wake me up that I may know You deeper and live for you in the fullness of Your power.
AMEN
