My Needs

TODAY’S VERSE
Your heavenly Father already knows all your needs. Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need.
Matthew 6:32-33

TODAY’S THOUGHT
We can really complicate life, can’t we? There are so many demands on our life. There are so many things that we think we must do we have lost sight of what is really important. Jesus comes along and would say to us, “Stop filling your life with so many other things and let Me fulfill your real need.” You see, Jesus knows what satisfies, and He offers it to all His followers. He said, “Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need.” The real secret to this life is to live in His Kingdom, instead of our own. We need to live in this world with heaven’s priority. God loves you. Trust Him, live for Him and He promises that He will give you everything you need.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, You know my name. You know who I am. You also know my needs. Thank You, for Your promise that if I seek Your Kingdom above everything else, You will give me everything I need. So I come to You now, Father, and ask that You would help me live for You. I entrust my needs to You. In Jesus’ name. AMEN

Don’t Forget

Don’t Forget

TODAY’S VERSE
“If only the LORD had killed us back in Egypt,’” they moaned. “There we sat around pots filled with meat and ate all the bread we wanted. But now you have brought us into this wilderness to starve us all to death.”
Exodus 16:3

TODAY’S THOUGHT
One month after the Lord had delivered them from the hand of Pharaoh, the children of Israel found themselves in a desert. Did they remember the mighty miracles that God used to deliver them from slavery? Did they remember the dry ground they walked on that was once covered by the Red Sea? No, they forgot and complained to Moses that they would have been better off back in Egypt! What is it about our human nature that causes us to forget good things so quickly? Charles Spurgeon said it this way, “I don’t know which to marvel more at God’s faithfulness or man’s forgetfulness.” Why is this so important? Because remembering is key to our survival. God teaches us life lessons that are needed later in our life but our propensity is to forget. The lesson for the Israelites would be, “Don’t forget in the desert what you learned at the Red Sea.” What about you? Do you remember how faithful God has been to you in the past? Today, stop and remember all that God has done for you. Remember His faithfulness. Remember His provision. Remember His presence in times past and go forward in the reality that God is the same yesterday, today and forever.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, forgive me for my forgetfulness. Instead, Lord, help me remember all that You have done and all that You have promised. In Jesus’ name.
AMEN

My Heart, God’s Home

TODAY’S VERSE
The one thing I ask of the LORD, the thing I seek most, is to live in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, delighting in the LORD’s perfections and meditating in his Temple. – My heart has heard you say, ‘Come and talk with me.’ And my heart responds, ‘LORD, I am coming.’”
Psalms 27:4, 8

TODAY’S THOUGHT
David was a shepherd boy who knew and loved God. Because of David’s heart toward God, God called David to be king of all Israel. And a great king he was. But more than a king, David remained a man that sought after the heart of God. I can imagine David in his palace, a long way from the cold nights in the fields with the sheep, wishing he was back in the fields with the stars in the sky, playing his harp and worshiping God. How his heart cried out, “I want to live in the house of the Lord, delighting in Him!” And that is what he did. In fact, his heart did become a house of God. From his heart, he wrote the Psalms. What an offering of worship and praise to God. God would invite us to do the same. What is in your heart? Is it a home for God? Is it a Temple of praise and thanksgiving? If not, it can be. Like David, God comes to you and says, “Come and talk with me.” When He does, respond like David and say, “Lord, I am coming.” Today, you can begin to be a “person after God’s own heart.”

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, You have bid me to come to You. I am coming even now. Like David, I want to be a person after Your own heart. I come today and ask You to take my heart and make it Your home. In Jesus’ name. AMEN

Joint-Heir With Christ

TODAY’S VERSE
And since we are his children, we are his heirs. In fact, together with Christ we are heirs of God’s glory. – And having chosen them, he called them to come to him. And having called them, he gave them right standing with himself. And having given them right standing, he gave them his glory. What shall we say about such wonderful things as these? If God is for us, who can ever be against us?
Romans 8:17, 30-31

TODAY’S THOUGHT
I don’t think we really understand who we are in Christ. If we did, the church would be a more powerful force in the world. Instead, we go around blinded to our true inheritance. We are like a child who, separated at birth from its father, the King, grows up never realizing the birthright that was his. Never accepts the reality that they are the child of a King. In his book When Heaven Invades Earth, Bill Johnson drives this point home. He writes, “At what point do we start thinking of our worth through His eyes? If it is true that the value of something is measured by what someone else will pay, then we need to rethink our worth. – Jesus paid the ultimate price to make it possible for us to have a change in our identity. – Doesn’t it honor Him more when His children no longer see themselves only as sinners saved by grace, but now heirs of God?” Today, let that fact sink in. You are God’s child. You are a co-heir with Christ in our Heavenly Kingdom. If God is for you, what in this world could possibly stand against you?

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, I have judged myself by so many false standards. I have seen myself with blurry vision. I have looked in a stained mirror never seeing what You see. Today, help me believe. Help me really understand that I am Your child, a joint heir with Christ. In Jesus’ name.
AMEN

Seek Him

TODAY’S VERSE
Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. I will be found by you.” declares the LORD.
Jeremiah 29:12-14

TODAY’S THOUGHT
There is a mystery to knowing God. His love draws us to Him. God has made it abundantly clear that “whosoever will” may come to Him; but this is the beginning, not the end. If we are to follow Him, be His disciple, take knowing Him seriously, then He demands preeminence in our life. Solomon knew this. He prayed for Godly wisdom. He sought it more than anything else God could offer him and God gave it to him. He writes that it is the same for us. We must want to know God more than anything else. We need to “call out for insight and cry aloud for understanding”. He assures us that knowing God will come when we look for Him like we would look for silver and search for Him like we would search for hidden treasure. Jeremiah says it another way. He says that we will find God when we seek Him with all our heart. How much have you wanted to know God? What treasure are you seeking? What has your heart sought after? If God is going to be a serious part of your life, if you are going to live in His wisdom, then you must make knowing Him a priority. God didn’t say we had to be smart, wise, rich, talented or gifted to know Him. The only requirement is desire. Turn your desire toward God. When you do, He promises, “I will be found by you.”

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, I admit I have let my desire wander. I have sought for fools’ gold. I have put other priorities ahead of knowing You. I come today and seek You with all my heart. Father, I yearn for Your wisdom. I desire to have understanding. I want to know You more than anything else. Teach me, guide me, lead me. I pray this in the precious name of Jesus.
AMEN

The Fruit Of The Spirit

TODAY’S VERSE
But the Holy Spirit produces this kind of fruit in our lives: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.
Galatians 5:22-23 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
When I think of our human propensity for anger, confusion, impatience, harshness, lack of control and impulsiveness, I am amazed at God’s solution. Our humanness, a result of man’s fallen condition, has been trumped by God’s Holy Spirit. What a plan. God gives us a body in which we house our personality with enough room for His Holy Spirit. The result is the ability of the Holy Spirit to produce in us new attitudes, motivations and behaviors. Paul calls it fruit. What a great analogy – the Holy Spirit alive in us, growing into a beautiful fruit tree. The fruit that the Holy Spirit produces is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. You don’t have to make an apple tree produce apples. When watered, nourished and receiving adequate sunlight, an apple tree produces beautiful luscious apples. Likewise, you don’t have to manufacture the fruit of the Spirit; rather, you begin reading and meditating on His Holy word and spending time in a relationship with God through confession and prayer and the Holy Spirit will generate the results. Begin today to nourish your spiritual life and let the Holy Spirit produce its fruit.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear Father, I desire the fruit of the Holy Spirit to be evident in my life. Help me to read and meditate on Your word. Help me to relate to You in prayer and confession. Help me, Holy Spirit, live the life You want me to. Produce Your fruit in my life, even today. In Jesus’ name.
AMEN

You Choose

TODAY’S VERSE
Today I have given you the choice between life and death, between blessings and curses. Now I call on heaven and earth to witness the choice you make. Oh, that you would choose life, so that you and your descendants might live!
Deuteronomy 30:19 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
Our life is full of choices. Everyday we make dozens of them. What are we going to eat? What responses are we going to give to the many questions we are asked? How are we going to react to the various circumstances we find our self in? However, some of the choices we make are serious, very serious. They are between life and death. Some choices are about our physical life but many choices are of a more spiritual nature. Moses tells us that we have a choice between life and death, blessings and curses. God then pleads with us, through Moses, saying, “Oh, that you would choose life, so that you and your descendants might live!” How serious is that? It is enough to cause you to freeze from making any choice, but that won’t help. In spiritual issues, sometimes not choosing is really a negative choice. Joshua helps us with our everyday choices by forcing us to consider the primary choice. If we make the primary choice, many of the other choices come much easier. Joshua asks us to choose who will be the Lord of our life, who are we going to serve? Today choose life. Choose to follow God and His word. Surrender your will and commit your way to Him and He will direct your other choices.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, I come to You today and choose to follow You. I need Your help in every choice I make. I want to choose life in all that I do. Please guide me and direct my choices. In Jesus’ name.
AMEN

Idolatry

Idolatry

TODAY’S VERSE
“Has anyone ever heard of anything as strange as this? Has any nation ever traded its gods for new ones, even though they are not gods at all? Yet my people have exchanged their glorious God for worthless idols! The heavens are shocked at such a thing and shrink back in horror and dismay,” says the LORD.
Jeremiah 2:11-12

TODAY’S THOUGHT
This passage shows the real heart of God and how He desires us to know and love Him. You may ask, “But how am I guilty of giving up God for idols?” Perhaps it makes more sense if we exchange the word “idol” and read it as, “traded their God for television.” Perhaps career, wealth, or busyness would be better word substitutes? How God desires us to know Him, to love Him, to worship and serve Him, and yet as humans we find ourselves so distracted, so fickle in our commitment to Him. Look over the last month. How would heaven react to the preference you have given God? Today, give up whatever has stolen your heart, your time, your dedication to God and come back to Him. Worship Him as the true and living God.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, I have let other things crowd You out of my everyday experience. I have been guilty of idolatry by not making You first in my life. Today, I choose to reignite my love for You. I declare that You are Almighty God and give You my allegiance. In Jesus’ name.
AMEN

Contentment

TODAY’S VERSE
Yet true godliness with contentment is itself great wealth. After all, we brought nothing with us when we came into the world, and we can’t take anything with us when we leave it. So if we have enough food and clothing, let us be content.
I Timothy 6: 6-8 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
What if the world really believed today‘s passage? How far would corruption get? How about envy, jealousy, bribery? If contentment was our goal instead of wealth, fame or one-upmanship, how much better would the world be? How better would our life be? But why would the world do this if the church isn’t? When is the last time you heard a sermon on contentment? Instead, how many times do we think a person who is successful in business should be one of our spiritual leaders? A person in a lesser station in life could be very devout in their faith yet never be considered for the position. This is simply wrong. Paul is teaching us true Kingdom standards. He is saying that being Godly and having contentment is true wealth in the Kingdom’s currency. If we have our basic needs met, it is not wrong to be satisfied with that and seek to devote our time to spiritual pursuits. In today’s world, most of us have an opportunity to make a good living. Some will make an extraordinary amount of money and have what the world calls success, but all of us can have contentment. All of us can be rich in the Kingdom of God. Today, let’s find it in our hearts to be thankful and pray that God would teach us more about contentment.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear Father, I have so much to be thankful for, yet I wrestle with being content. Help me understand Your values. Help me to strive after Godliness. Teach me about true contentment so I may have life’s true wealth. In Jesus’ name.
AMEN

Trust, Delight and Comitt

TODAY’S VERSE
Trust in the Lord and do good. Then you will live safely in the land and prosper. Take delight in the Lord and he will give you your heart’s desires. Commit everything you do to the Lord. Trust him, and he will help you.
Psalms 37:3-5 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
Attitude is everything. How we react to situations makes all the difference in the world. David knew this and God shared with him the secret to spiritual success. First, when circumstances arise, we are to trust in the Lord. We need to move ahead in faith. But even going forward in faith, if we want to experience the joy in the journey, we need to take the time to delight in God. Getting to know Him, building a relationship and learning to really enjoy living for God will keep us through the difficult times. Thirdly, we need to come to God with total commitment. How many times do we start out with trust and delight in God, but when things go sour, or when there seems to be no relief in sight, we give up. Committing everything to God means we trust Him for the long run. Today we can start our journey with the attitude that David had; we can bring everything to God and trust, delight and commit.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, help me with my attitude. I come to You today and trust You with my life. Help me know You and delight in You. Lord, I commit everything I am and have to You and am thankful that You will indeed help me. In Jesus’ name.
AMEN
