TODAY’S VERSE
This I declare about the LORD: He alone is my refuge, my place of safety; he is my God, and I trust him.
Psalms 91:2 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
Where do you go to escape? Life is full of pressures. Relationships, finances, health, our career, it is easy to become overwhelmed with stress. Then there is the inward battle. Our emotions run us ragged. Anger, sadness, fear and disgust seem to take their turn in dominating our thinking. We find ourself getting stuck in people pleasing, codependency, minimizing, maximizing and any one of hundreds of mind games. What can we do? Where can we go to ward off this onslaught against us? The Psalmist went to God. He declared that the Lord alone was his refuge. God was that place of safety that He needed. He declared that God was his God and he could trust Him. That personal acceptance is what made the difference. It was his God. It was his place of refuge. It was his place of safety. Today, you too can make it personal. Acknowledge Him as your Lord God. Accept His as your refuge. Find your place of safety by knowing Him in a deep personal way. As you develop your relationship with Him, you too will find that trusting Him will be the end result.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear Father, my Father. I need You and want You to be my refuge and place of safety. Help me to know You in a more deeper and profound way so I too can say, “You are my God and I trust You!”
AMEN

TODAY’S VERSE
Teach me your ways, O LORD, that I may live according to your truth!
Psalms 86:11 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
When is truth not true? When it is a lie! Just because you believe something is true doesn’t mean it is! There are many things that we believe about life, ourself and even God that are wrong. “I am unloveable.” “God can’t forgive me.” “I am damaged goods.” “God doesn’t care about me.” “It’s no use trying.” These core beliefs come out of life experiences and our immature interpretation of those events. When we use words like always and never we are making huge assumptions that leave little room for faith and grace. That is why we must be retaught. David wrote, “Teach me your ways, O Lord, that I may live according to your truth!” Jesus said, “But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, he will teach you all things and bring to your remembrance all that I have said to you.” Paul wrote, “All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right.” Why live your life believing deep seated lies? Bring all your beliefs to God. Ask Him to teach you truth through the power of the Holy Spirit and His word.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear Father, I need to know and believe the truth. Please teach me through Your Holy Spirit and the Bible what the truth about You, life and myself really is.
AMEN

TODAY’S VERSE
The joy of the Lord is your strength.
Nehemiah 8:10 (NIV)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
We were made for joy. Joy is an emotion of excitement and exuberance when we experience or anticipate something good. We experience joy when good things happen. But joy is also a peaceful assurance, a deep down inner satisfaction that we get from the source of the good. And what greater source of good is there that God? It is the presence of the Lord that brings us to this joyful conclusion. He changes everything. That is why the Bibles says, “In Your presence is fullness of joy; in Your right hand there are pleasures for evermore.” That is why the scriptures can command us to be joyful even in our troubles, suffering, affliction, poverty, and persecution. Why? Because the Bible says we will find true joy in God, the Holy Spirit and His people. We find joy in our faith, believing, hoping and giving. That is why Paul could write for us to joyfully bring our requests to Him, to finish our race with joy and to be joyful in all things. Today we have a choice. Troubles will come but when we think of God in all His power and deep love for us, we can return to joy over and over again. When we do, we will find our strength.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear Father, I take great joy in knowing who You are and anticipating all that you have for me. Help me find a deep strength as I return to this joy from the painful emotions I experience. In Jesus’ name.
AMEN

TODAY’S VERSE
So if you are suffering in a manner that pleases God, keep on doing what is right, and trust your lives to the God who created you, for he will never fail you.
I Peter 4:19 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
Sometimes there is a price for doing the right thing. But there is always a reward. It may not be the kind of reward we were looking for. Materialism is so addictive. We judge our value by our accomplishments, net worth and how many toys we have. However with all that can come Godless attitudes, a self-sufficiency and pride. So we decide instead to follow Christ. Peter explains, “You won’t spend the rest of your lives chasing your own desires, but you will be anxious to do the will of God.” As a follower of Christ the good you decide to do may be countercultural to where you work or those that you associate with. Peter says that this could result in people slandering you. You could suffer because of it. That very well may be the price you have to pay but Peter also explains the reward. He writes, “So if you are suffering in a manner that pleases God, keep on doing what is right, and trust your lives to the God who created you, for he will never fail you.” He will never fail you. He will never fail you! Keep on doing what is right.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Lord help me to keep on doing right, because I know it pleases You. Thank You that You promised You will never leave me or forsake. You will not fail me.
AMEN

TODAY’S VERSE
I will never forget this awful time, as I grieve over my loss. Yet I still dare to hope.
Lamentations 3:20-21 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
Life takes us on many twists and turns. There are times in our life that are hard to forget. They leave deep scars in our soul. Jeremiah starts this passage with the memory of an awful time. He was grieving over his loss but everything changed when he dared to hope. What do we dare to do? We could keep on grieving. We could stay in a state of hopeless depression. We could let bitterness and cynicism take over our life. Jeremiah dared to hope. He dared to hope because he remembered that God is in the picture. And it was what he knew about God that changed everything. He writes, “The faithful love of the LORD never ends! His mercies never cease. Great is his faithfulness; his mercies begin afresh each morning.” You see you have a choice. You can choose what you want to remember. Do you want to remember the awful time or the faithful love and mercies of God? Today choose God. His mercies are fresh this morning.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, You know my grief. You know my heartache. Today bring my grief to You. Take it Lord. I choose to hope in You again. Show me Your faithful love. Fill my heart with Your tender mercies. In Jesus’ name.
AMEN

TODAY’S VERSE
“So why do you keep calling me ‘Lord, Lord!’ when you don’t do what I say?
Luke 6:46 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
What an indicting question. It is so easy to use a name and forget its true meaning. How many times have we called our spouse, “husband” or “wife” and yet treated them as if they were someone of little importance? We call someone our “brother” or “sister” and treat them with disrespect. We call someone, “teacher” and do not do what they tell us to do. And so Jesus asks, “Why?” Why do we do it? Why have we done it to Him? What drives us to behave in the opposite direction of what we profess to believe? Perhaps it is because we have grown accustom to Him and take Him for granted. Could it be that someone or something else has taken His place of importance? Maybe we have become so self-centered that we dismiss His authority in our life. It could be that we have let strong emotions come between us and Him. Whatever the reason, here is the next question, “Why not repent and let Jesus be your true Lord today?”

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear Lord Jesus. Forgive me for calling You Lord and living as if it wasn’t true. I repent. I want to live for You. I want You to be the Lord of my life today.
AMEN

TODAY’S VERSE
I know the LORD is always with me. I will not be shaken, for he is right beside me.
Psalm 16:8 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
We are not alone. God created us for fellowship with Himself. He never purposed for us to travel this life without Him. No more than a loving Father would abandon his infant son to fend for himself, did God ever have in mind that He would abandon us to fight our own battles. The loneliness we sense is in our own head not in the spiritual reality God has created. He is the God who is here! He is present. He is always with you. Perhaps it was his shepherding, as a young boy, all alone at night guarding the sheep that taught David to trust in God. The reality of God caused David to write one the most comforting passages in all of scriptures. Read it, sense it, and believe it in all of its truth. David proclaims, “I know the LORD is always with me. I will not be shaken, for he is right beside me.” May you experience this reality today.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear Father, thank You for Your promise that You will never leave me or forsake me. Today I trust You, for I know You are always with me. I will not be shaken for You are right beside me. Hallelujah!
