TODAY’S VERSE

And He was amazed at their unbelief.
Mark 6:6 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
It is recorded in the gospels that twice Jesus was amazed. One was when a Roman Officer had a sick servant and sent for some Jewish leaders to heal the servant. They went to get Jesus. Before Jesus could get to the Officer’s home he sent a messenger saying to Jesus, “Lord, don’t trouble yourself by coming to my home, for I am not worthy of such an honor. Just say the word from where you are, and my servant will be healed.” Jesus marveled at his faith. The other time was when Jesus went back to his own home town and no one would believe He was the Son of God. Instead they mocked and would not come for healing. Here Mark writes that Jesus was amazed at their unbelief. The two examples begs the question, “What about us? Will Jesus be amazed at our faith or our unbelief?

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear Lord, I know I live much of my life in unbelief. Forgive me for my lack of faith. Today, I recommit myself and cry out, “I believe, help my unbelief!”
AMEN

TODAY’S VERSE

You must grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
II Peter 3:18 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
We like to take a position. We choose sides. The danger in this is that our world view can become lopsided. Not everything is black or white, truth or lie, good or evil. Often we are better off embracing a broader view in order to get a more complete picture. For example there is strength and beauty, science and art, traditional and avant-garde. Peter, under the direction of the Holy Spirit, added grace and knowledge. We need knowledge. To know about Christ, His teaching, and the scriptures gives us the foundation upon which we build our spiritual life. But in our living of this spiritual life we need grace. God’s compassion, mercy, forgiveness and grace help give us the chance to mature and become more like Him. Today, heed what Peter wrote, “You must grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.”

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear Father, today I commit myself to grow in the grace and knowledge of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
AMEN

TODAY’S VERSE

Likewise the Spirit helps us in our weakness. For we do not know what to pray for as we ought, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words.
Romans 8:26 (ESV)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
Have you ever had someone intercede for you? You were way over your head and didn’t know what to do. Then someone came along, someone who knew exactly what you needed, and took care of the situation. How can you even begin to thank them? You were without hope and then they came and rescued you. Paul says that is the way it is with the Holy Spirit. We don’t know what to do. We don’t even know how to pray, but, praise God, He himself comes in the person of the Holy Spirit and intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words. God’s pure love is that way. It is way beyond our comprehension. Today thank God for interceding for you. Thank Him for His love that helps you in ways you can’t even imagine.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear Lord, thank You for Your love. Thank You for helping with my weaknesses and interceding for me with groanings too deep for words.
AMEN

Merry Christmas

TODAY’S VERSE

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.
Hebrews 4:15-16 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
How many times do we need mercy and grace in our life? It is so good to know that God knows all about your weaknesses. He empathizes with your situation. He overcame temptation and the trials that test your soul. Because of His great love for you He bids you to come to Him with boldness. Come right into His throne room and receive all the mercy and grace you will ever need. Today, don’t let anything stop you. He loves you, He knows you, come and let Him know your needs.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear Jesus, I am so thankful that You understand my weaknesses. I bring them to You and ask for Your grace and mercy to forgive me and help me live for You.
AMEN

TODAY’S VERSE

Love each other in the same way I have loved you.
John 15:12 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
There are commands and then there are commands. Jesus gave us a tall order when He told His disciples to love others in the same way He loved us. Jesus love was unfathomable. His sacrifice and compassion were His trademark. It doesn’t take long and we will find that we just cannot do it. We cannot love the way He does, at least without His help. The good news is that just a few sentences later Jesus looked at His disciples and said, “You didn’t choose me. I chose you. I appointed you to go and produce lasting fruit.” Here in lies our answer. Here is the solution. God chose you and I to be His disciples. He chose us to love others in the same way He loves us. And what He chooses to do He can empower. We don’t love in our own strength but in the power of His Holy Spirit. Today, in the power of the Holy Spirit, let us love those around us the way Jesus would love them.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear Jesus, Help me in the power of your Holy Spirit, to love others the way you love.
AMEN

TODAY’S VERSE

But God, who encourages those who are discouraged, encouraged us.
II Corinthians 7:6 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
We all need encouragement. With all the pressure and stress we live under it is easy to become frustrated, disillusioned and discouraged. But most of our discouragement comes out of a mindset that does not include God with all His love and power. God makes all the difference in the world. Today include God in your plans. Speak to Him about your frustrations and disappointments. Bring Him all your needs. Ask Him for wisdom and discernment. As you do, you will be able to say with Paul, “But God, who encourages those who are discouraged, encouraged me.”

TODAY’S PRAYER
Oh Lord, remind me of Your love for me. Help me to understand Your power. Help me to lean on You and not my own understanding. Here is my heart, encourage me I pray. In Jesus’ name.
AMEN

TODAY’S VERSE

Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.
I Thessalonians 5:16-18 (NIV)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
It is more than wishful thinking. It is more than some idealized notion. It is actually God’s will for your life that you rejoice always, pray continually and give thanks in all circumstances! This can only be done when we see that it is God’s will for our life. It is through our knowledge of Him, our experience with Him and our living through Him that this is possible. God’s will for our life is done out of a personal Spirit filled relationship with Him. He gives us the joy, He causes our heart to pray and He helps us give thanks. So today, let Him lead your life. Think of Him and all the love He has for you and rejoice always, pray continually and give thanks in all circumstances.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear Father. I thank You for Your love for me. Help me today to rejoice always, pray continually and give thanks in all circumstances.
In Jesus’ name.
AMEN
