TODAY’S VERSE
O LORD, hear me as I pray; pay attention to my groaning. Listen to my cry for help, my King and my God, for I pray to no one but you.
Psalms 5:1-2 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
Jesus said, “Abide in me and I will abide in you.” What a relationship God is offering us. David knew about it. He was abiding with God. He writes, “Listen to my voice in the morning, LORD. Each morning I bring my requests to you and wait expectantly.” He brought God His groaning; his deepest concerns; the cries from the bottom of his heart. Paul picks up on this same theme and writes, “The Holy Spirit helps us in our weakness. For example, we don’t know what God wants us to pray for. But the Holy Spirit prays for us with groanings that cannot be expressed in words. And the Father who knows all hearts knows what the Spirit is saying, for the Spirit pleads for us believers in harmony with God’s own will.” Today, abide in God. Pray and share your heart with Him. He knows you. He loves you. He cares for you. Abide in Him.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear Father, thank You for Your love and concern for me. Thank You for hearing my prayers and helping me with all my needs. Today I want to abide in You and have You abide in me. In Jesus’ name.
AMEN

TODAY’S VERSE
“Trust in the LORD with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths.”
Proverb 3:5-6

TODAY’S THOUGHT
When I was trained in wilderness school, the goal was to teach us to be a good guide. They took us on courses and training where our lives were literally in the hand of the person leading us. The training guide knew where we were and how to get us where we were going. The guide knew the terrain and how to survive any and every condition. A wilderness is a wild and unpredictable environment and a good guide will get you through it. We need a guide to get us through the mountains and valleys of this life. We need a guide to lead us through the difficult times, when we seem lost and all is hopeless. Solomon says to, “Trust in the Lord with all our heart” and He will direct our path. More specifically, Jesus promised that He will give us the Holy Spirit to be our guide. God, through the Holy Spirit, will lead us into all truth. And in the wilderness, truth is king! There is no room for error; you need the truth to guide you every step of the way. So, where are you today? Where are you going? How will you get there? You need the Holy Spirit to be your guide. Proverbs warns us not to lean on our own understanding but to acknowledge our need for God. Come to God today and ask Him to lead you. Surrender to His guidance and let Him direct your paths. Might the verse of an old Sunday School song be your prayer today, “My God knows the way through the wilderness, all I have to do is follow.”

TODAY’S PRAYER
Lord, You know how I need You to direct my path today. I can’t do it by myself. I surrender to You and ask that You would lead me through the power of Your Holy Spirit. Guide me, direct me, lead me this day. In Jesus’ name.
AMEN

TODAY’S VERSE
Therefore, dear brothers and sisters, you have no obligation to do what your sinful nature urges you to do. For if you live by its dictates, you will die. But if through the power of the Spirit you put to death the deeds of your sinful nature, you will live.
Romans 8:12-13 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
Maturity is a journey. When we think we have matured in one area, we move to another challenge in life that stretches us more. We are in a process of becoming more and more like Him. It is so hard, but we don’t give up! The good news is that Paul tells us that we do not have an obligation to do what our sinful nature urges us to do. Now, it doesn’t always feel that way. Cravings, temptations, habits run deep. But today we have a choice! We have a choice to say, “No.” We have the choice to “stop”. We have to “repent!” We have a choice to not be dominated by our sinful nature. Paul wrote, “Those who are dominated by the sinful nature think about sinful things, but those who are controlled by the Holy Spirit think about things that please the Spirit. So letting your sinful nature control your mind leads to death. But letting the Spirit control your mind leads to life and peace.” So today, repent; say no; stop! You have a choice. Ask the Spirit of God to mold your mind and behavior.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear Holy Father. I struggle with sin. I need Your help. I need the power of Your Holy Spirit to put to death my sinful nature. I come and ask You to forgive me, fill me and empower me. In the name of Jesus.
AMEN

TODAY’S VERSE
“But blessed are those who trust in the Lord and have made the Lord their hope and confidence.”
Jeremiah 17:7

TODAY’S THOUGHT
It is one thing to say we trust someone, it is another to put confidence in them. A famous tightrope walker was going to cross Niagara Falls with a person in a wheelbarrow. He asked the crowd watching, “How many think I can make it with a person in the wheelbarrow to the other side?” Most of the people raised their hand. Then he said, “Who will sit in the wheelbarrow?” No one volunteered. How many times has God said to us, “How many believe I can supply all your needs?” “How many think I love you and will help you overcome your struggles?” We quickly raise our hand and say, “Yes, Lord, I believe.” But when struggles come, when doubt raises it head, when God brings the wheelbarrow and says, “Jump in,” we slither to the back of the crowd. True trust, true faith is acted out in hope and confidence. Might you go forth this day trusting in God. Might you have all the faith you need to sit in the wheelbarrow. If anyone can get you to the other side, it is God your Father.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, help me put my faith in You. Help me trust You, really trust You. Help me have real confidence in Your resurrection power and hope in Your undying love for me. In Jesus’ name.
AMEN

TODAY’S VERSE
“Then Jesus told him, ‘Because you have seen me, you have believed; blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.’”
John 20:29

“But he said to me, ‘My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.’”
II Corinthians 12:9

TODAY’S THOUGHT
Sometimes we just have to step out in faith. Sight is not an option. We can’t see a way out. We don’t know which way to go. Everything is cloudy. We are so tired, so weary, so confused we have no where to go. But then grace appears. Not any grace, God’s sufficient grace. Grace to help you trust Him. Grace to give you courage. Grace to give you hope. Grace to give you wisdom. Grace to help you hold on when you think your strength is gone. Grace to go to bed and get up to face another day. Grace to let God be God. If you believe when you have not seen any reason why, Jesus said you will be blessed. So get up, lift up your hands, give whatever it is that you cannot see to Jesus. He promises that His grace is sufficient for you.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, I come to You in my weakness. I cannot see. I have no answers. All I have is Your grace and You promised that will be sufficient. You promised if I believe when I cannot see, I will be blessed. So I bow to You. I place my heart at Your feet. You are my Lord and I will follow You. In Jesus’ name.
AMEN

TODAY’S VERSE
In peace I will lie down and sleep, for you alone, O LORD, will keep me safe.
Psalm 4:8 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
In the Lord’s Prayer Jesus, told us to pray to God saying, “Our Father.” And then He told us to ask our Heavenly Father to do His will on earth, as it is in heaven. There is peace in knowing a loving Father, a mighty Father, and an all wise Father. David knew God in that way and even during troubled times he could commit himself to the loving arms of God when he was about to sleep. His Father would keep him safe. Paul confirmed this when he wrote, “So you have not received a spirit that makes you fearful slaves. Instead, you received God’s Spirit when he adopted you as his own children. Now we call him, “Abba, Father.” We can come to God and call Him our loving Father, Daddy or Papa. It is through this re-fathering that we will know lasting peace. Isaiah assured us of this when he wrote, to God His Father, “You will keep in perfect peace all who trust in you, all whose thoughts are fixed on you!” Today, come to your Heavenly Father. Trust Him and He will give you peace.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear Father, help me to know You in this deep paternal sense. Re-father me I pray. Help me to grow into the child You have created me to be.
AMEN

TODAY’S VERSE
Dear brothers and sisters, when I was with you I couldn’t talk to you as I would to spiritual people. I had to talk as though you belonged to this world or as though you were infants in Christ. I had to feed you with milk, not with solid food, because you weren’t ready for anything stronger.
I Corinthians 1:1-2 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
It is one thing to see a baby behaving like a baby but totally inappropriate for an adult. There is an assumed maturity that should come with age, but sadly this is not always the case. Emotionally we can be stuck in “arrested development”. Spiritually Paul says we can be stuck in infancy. Instead of growing at a reasonable rate in our faith we become more nominal. In the letter to the Galatians Paul writes, “The Holy Spirit produces this kind of fruit in our lives: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.” This is the growth God desires. He promises if we abide in Him and He in us we will bear much fruit. Today, make it your goal to grow in Christ.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear Father, I want to grow in my faith. I want to grow in my knowledge of Christ. I want to grow in my relationship with You. Help me I pray.
AMEN
