TODAY’S VERSE
Let all that I am praise the LORD; may I never forget the good things he does for me.
Psalms 103:2 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
We tend to forget about all the goodness in our life. It is easy to take all our blessings for granted. Like spoiled children of the King who if we are entitled to every good thing we have. David, even though he was the King, did not want to take God’s love and favor for granted. Instead, he kept the blessings he received constantly in of him. He writes of God, “He forgives all my sins and heals all my diseases. He redeems me from death and crowns me with love and tender mercies. He fills my life with good things. My youth is renewed like the eagles!” What would you write? If you were to list all of the good God has done for you, what would you write down? Today, stop and consider all He has done for you. Let the cry of your heart be, “May I never forget the good things he does for me.”

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear Father, I praise You and thank You for all You have done for me. Let all that I am praise You. Thank You, Thank You, Thank you!
AMEN

TODAY’S VERSE
“I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith.”
Ephesians 3:16-17

TODAY’S THOUGHT
There is a famous booklet called “My Heart, Christ’s Home” written by Robert Munger. The author used a house as a metaphor for our heart. He shares how excited we are to first let Christ into our heart. Like a home, we visit with Him in the living room, treating Him as our guest. He is in our home. However, most of us stop there and never make Him at home. He isn’t part of our more intimate, personal lives. After a while, we get busy with life and quit spending time with Him. Soon we ignore Christ, running out of the house in the morning, never even talking to Him. The purpose of the book was to show us that knowing Christ is more than an occasional encounter. It is more than simply inviting Him into our heart. Knowing Christ is having intimate fellowship with Him. Paul prayed that the Ephesians would allow Christ to dwell in their hearts. This is where strength for our inner being comes from. John tells us that Christ is knocking on the door of our heart and wants to fellowship with us. Jesus told us that if we love Him, that He and His Father would come and make their home with us. Why not let Him? Give Him complete control of your life and access to all parts of your being. Today make your heart Christ’s home.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear Jesus, I want my heart to be Your home. Check out every room, every closet, even the basement. Be in complete charge of all I have and all I do. Be the ruler of my heart and make it Your home. In Jesus’ name.
AMEN

TODAY’S VERSE
And what do you benefit if you gain the whole world but lose your own soul?
Matthew 16:26

TODAY’S THOUGHT
Jesus asked a question that has challenged people for centuries. His question has never been more relevant than it is today. He asked, “What will we benefit if we gain the whole world but lose our soul?” Isn’t gaining the whole world what everyone seems to be striving for? Never in the history of man has it been harder to be content. The pressures of this world are amplified through print, television, movies and internet. The convergence of media and information has escalated the speed of trends, fads and popularity making us even more susceptible to manipulation. We need to look certain ways, have certain things, go to certain schools, and live in certain places. And if we cannot make it, then our children must. The words of Jesus stand in contrast to the media hype. They warn us to stop the madness! There is so much more in life. We have a soul that lives forever. It is eternal. Don’t lose it.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear Jesus, I feel like I am on a treadmill. Running and running but not going anywhere. I feel my soul slipping away. Help me today to see myself the way You see me. Help me to see myself as a living, breathing soul that You love and have created. Forgive me for seeking all the world has to offer. Help me find my true significance in You.
In Jesus’ name.
AMEN

TODAY’S VERSE
“This is my command—be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid or discouraged. For the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”
Joshua 1:9

TODAY’S THOUGHT
We read the Biblical stories and we tend to feel that those in the scriptures are super human. The truth is, they were people just like you and I. If there is a difference, it is the fact that they heard from God and, in Joshua’s case, decided to believe what God said. God chose Joshua to replace Moses as leader of the Jewish nation and lead them into the promised land. But God knew the task ahead and he knew Joshua. He knew that Joshua was a normal person with passions, fears and struggles. So when God appointed Joshua as leader, Moses met with him three times and told him to be strong and courageous. Then God called Joshua and Moses to appear before Him and personally told Joshua, “Be strong and courageous.” Can you imagine the impact that would have had on Joshua? To have Moses tell him three times and then meet with God face to face, and hear God tell him the same thing? But that was not enough. After Moses died, God personally called Joshua and spoke directly to him four more times. Each time God told Joshua to “be strong and courageous”. What did God know about Joshua that would cause Him to tell Joshua directly and indirectly eight times that he was to be strong and courageous? He no doubt knew that Joshua was a man just like you and I, and that he needed to put his feeble faith in a supernatural God. That is what Joshua did and God delivered him and the Jewish nation into the promised land. What is it that you need courage for? What do you need strength for? Remember today what God reminded Joshua of eight times, “Be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid or discouraged. For I AM with you wherever you go.”

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father you know all about me. You know how I need You. Today You have told me, like You told Joshua, not to be afraid but to be strong and courageous. Oh Father, tell me again and again, until like Joshua, I get it. Today I bring You my fears and my doubts, for You promised that You are with me wherever I am. Help me, Father, in my weakness to be strong and courageous. In Jesus’ name.
AMEN

TODAY’S VERSE
I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love.
Romans 8:38 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
Life can be a battle. There are all sorts of trials and tribulations that we face. But the good news is the Lord has the final word. Paul writes, “Can anything ever separate us from Christ’s love? Does it mean he no longer loves us if we have trouble or calamity, or are persecuted, or hungry, or destitute, or in danger, or threatened with death? No, despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us.” What victory is He talking about? How can we be victorious in calamity, persecution, hunger, destitution, danger or death? We are victorious because it isn’t finished yet! His love has the final word. He is the redeemer. He controls everything. He has prepared our ultimate home and victory so we can say with Paul, “No, despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us.”

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear Father, I pray that no matter what, I may always be conscious of Your great love for me. This is my victory, “nothing can separate me from Your love!”
AMEN

TODAY’S VERSE
Imitate God, therefore, in everything you do, because you are his dear children. Live a life filled with love, following the example of Christ.
Ephesians 5:1-2

TODAY’S THOUGHT
You have heard it said, “Imitation is the best form of flattery.” Have you ever watched a child imitate their father or mother? They are so serious. They pick up subtle nuances that we would never expect them to. They do not judge, they just act out what was acted out before them. This is what we have been asked to do. We are to imitate the love of Christ. We are to love the way He loved. Paul describes that kind of love. He says that love is patient, kind, not jealous, boastful, proud or rude. Love doesn’t demand its own way, is not irritable and doesn’t keep a record of wrong doing. Love endures, doesn’t lose faith, never gives up and is always hopeful. If we want to imitate Christ, we must love. Might Christ help us imitate His love today.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear Jesus, help me to imitate You in everything I do. Help me especially love the way You love. Guide me, direct me, fill me with Your Holy Spirit so I can follow Your example with those I meet today. In Jesus’ name.
AMEN

TODAY’S VERSE
Because of his glory and excellence, he has given us great and precious promises. These are the promises that enable you to share his divine nature and escape the world’s corruption caused by human desires.
II Peter 1:4

TODAY’S THOUGHT
Promises are important. It is a building block of civil society. Is there anything more reassuring than a promise? Is there anything more demoralizing than a promise that is broken? In the spiritual realm, God is the promise keeper. Peter tells us that God has given us great and precious promises designed to help us be like Him. Do you know what God has promised you? As you read the Scriptures you begin to realize that His word is full of promises. He has promised that He would never leave you or forsake you. He has promised that He went to Heaven to prepare a place for you. He has promised that nobody can take you from Him. I asked earlier if there is anything more demoralizing than a promise that is broken? The only thing I can think of is the sorrow that we must bring God when we live as if He never promised us anything. Start today, study the scriptures and find all the promises God has for you. You will be amazed. Start to live as if they are true and you will be blessed!

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear Father, thank You that You have given me many great and precious promises. Help me to learn more about them. Help me believe them and live my life accordingly. In Jesus’ name.
AMEN
