A Solid Foundation

TODAY’S VERSE
Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock.
Matthew 7:24-25

TODAY’S MESSAGE
It matters what you build your life on. Both Jesus and Paul agreed you need to build your life on the truth of the Bible. Not just knowing the truth but living the truth. Jesus said, “Everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them in practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock.” Paul wrote that we should be a “workman that does not need to be ashamed, who correctly handles the word of truth.” If we want our life on the firm ground, then we need to be grounded in His word. We need to read the Bible, study it and then apply it to our life. We need to live what we read. When we do, we will find that life will stand the tests of time.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Lord Jesus, I want to live my life on solid ground. I want to be able to stand firm when I go through hard times. Help me to read Your word and understand its meaning. Help me to live what You tell me to do. I want to be a workman that does not need to be ashamed, who correctly handles Your word of truth! In Jesus’ name.
AMEN

Ask For Wisdom

Ask For Wisdom

TODAY’S VERSE
My child, listen to what I say and treasure my commands. Tune your ears to wisdom, and concentrate on understanding. Cry out for insight, and ask for understanding. Search for them as you would for silver; seek them like hidden treasures. Then you will understand what it means to fear the LORD, and you will gain knowledge of God. For the LORD grants wisdom! From his mouth come knowledge and understanding.
Proverbs 2:1-6 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
In I Kings the third chapter, God asks Solomon, David’s son and the new King of Israel, “What do you want?” Solomon gives an eloquent response and asks for wisdom. God was impressed and blessed Solomon beyond measure. I admire Solomon’s choice. He could have asked for riches, fame, land, skills, athletic ability, immortality, a myriad of choices were his to ask for, but he chose wisdom. He knew that with wisdom comes so much more. With wisdom comes knowledge and understanding. It is more precious than hidden treasure. The best news is that God will give it to us freely if we ask for it in faith. What do you need wisdom about today? Is it a relationship, job situation, financial worry, medical choice or family issue? God hears your request. Search for wisdom, cry out for insight, seek for it and God will grant your request. Like James said, “If you need wisdom, ask our generous God, and He will give it to you.”

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear almighty, all-wise God. I need Your wisdom today. I need You to speak to me, to show me Your way, to give me Your knowledge and understanding. I want it more than riches than fame than success. Thank You that You said if I need wisdom to ask You and You will give it to me. So, Father, I come now, bowing before You, asking for wisdom, knowledge, and understanding. Thank You for hearing my prayer. In Jesus’ name.
AMEN

Focus On Believing

TODAY’S VERSE
Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever! Amen.
Ephesians 3:20-21

TODAY’S THOUGHT
Which are you? The glass is half empty or the glass is half full? When it comes to reading today’s verse, it really makes a difference. It is easy to let our “half empty” attitude take a “glass is full and running over” type of verse we have today and bring it right down. What do you think when you read, “Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine”? Bill Johnson in his book When Heaven Invades Earth writes, “Faith is not the absence of doubt. It is the presence of belief.” So maybe today we shouldn’t worry about our doubts. It’s okay to have them. We all do. But for today, perhaps we should just focus on believing what God has said. He CAN do more than you and I can ever imagine. Ask God to help you believe this today. Give Him your worries, fears, and problems. Let Him control your life. He is more than able!

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, today, instead of trying to rid myself of doubt, I choose to believe You are able to do more than I can ever imagine. Today I choose faith. Today I choose to trust You. Today I choose Your love for me and will live in this hope, that You are alive and are able. In Jesus’ name.
AMEN

Think Right

TODAY’S VERSE
Whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.
Philippians 4:8 (NIV)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
You have heard the saying, “You are what you eat.” I think in reality, “We are what we think.” Thoughts, whether conscious or on a more hidden level, affect the way we feel, perceive reality, act or react. Thoughts help create our moods, attitudes, and beliefs. Anger, jealousy, pride, envy, sadness, rebellion – these and many other negative emotions or behaviors have their root in the way we think. That is why it is so important to be aware and take responsibility for our thinking. Paul instructs us to consider that our mind is in a spiritual war. Because of that, we are to demolish any rouge thoughts that set itself up against Godly thinking. We are to take our thoughts captive and put it through a Godly filter so it becomes the way He would have us think. Paul admonishes us to dwell on thoughts that are noble, right, pure, lovely, admirable, excellent and praiseworthy. Today you have a choice; you can rule your thoughts or you can let them rule you. Let Jesus be the Lord of your thought life. Let Him help you with the way you think.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, I bring you my mind and my sub-conscious mind. Help me bring all my thoughts into the light of Your Holy Spirit. Today, dear Lord, help me dwell on thoughts that are noble, right, pure, lovely, admirable, excellent and praiseworthy. In Jesus’ name.
AMEN

Meditation

TODAY’S VERSE
May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing to you, O LORD, my rock and my redeemer.
Psalms 19:14

TODAY’S THOUGHT
It is so easy to fall into a negative thinking. It is simple as a cue, response, and reward. The negative beliefs we have causes predictions which send us into alarm mode. We try to escape these painful emotions but the truth is we need to change what we believe. We must ask God to take over our mind, emotions, and will. We need to allow Him to be the master of all we think and do. The great news is we can start today. We can come to God and start to meditate on what He wants us to believe. We can bring Him all our emotions and thoughts. We can be honest with Him and then let Him be honest with us. As we do, He will begin to affect our behavior. Today, ask God to invade your mind and guide your meditation. Pray with David, “May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing to you, O LORD, my rock and my redeemer.”

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, You know what goes on in my mind. You know how I can become so unspiritual in my thought life. Help me, Lord! Correct my thinking. I pray that today the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart will be pleasing to You. In Jesus’ name.
AMEN
