Way Of Life

TODAY’S VERSE
You will show me the way of life, granting me the joy of your presence and the pleasures of living with you forever.
Psalms 16:11 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
What would you give to know the way of life? Imagine the joy, the excitement, the satisfaction from learning, “This is the way, walk in it!” That is exactly what God will do for you. He wants to show you the way. He wants His presence to be your assurance, your North Star, your compass, so at the end of the day, you too can say, “It was a pleasure living for God.” Today ask. Ask God to show you the way of life. Ask Him to grant you the joy of knowing and living in the awareness of His presence and the pleasures of living with Him forever.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear Father, show me the way of life. Grant me the joy of Your presence and the pleasures of living with You forever.
AMEN

Be On Guard

TODAY’S VERSE
Be on guard. Stand firm in the faith. Be courageous. Be strong.
I Corinthians 16:13 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
We each have our battles. Life can be hard. Struggles can cause our faith to falter, and we begin to live as those who have no hope at all. Paul knew what it was like to have troubles; he knew hardship and heartbreak. And so, when he was finishing writing his letter to the church in Corinth, he gave them one final admonition. Like a coach before the final play of the game, Paul rallies the church and tells them to be on their guard. He wanted them to watch out for the spiritual battle. He told them to stand firm in their faith, being courageous and strong. The good news is they did not have to do this on their own. This same Paul reminds us in another letter he wrote that we can do all things through Christ who empowers us. Today, call out to God for His power, and then be on your guard. Stand firm in your faith. Be courageous today and stay strong.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear Lord, You have said that I can do all things through You because You will empower me. Help me today to be on my guard against evil and temptation. Allow me to stand firm in my faith. Encourage me to be courageous in my behavior and to be strong in Your power.
AMEN

Be Strong And Corageous

TODAY’S VERSE
So be strong and courageous, all you who put your hope in the LORD!
Psalms 31: 24 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
What you hope in can determine your attitude. It is easy to get discouraged when times are hard. It is easy to behave and feel like a person who doesn’t have hope at all. That is why David challenged us to be strong and courageous. This wasn’t some Pollyanna “things will work out” slogan but rather a call to action. An “all-out, put your hope in God and go for it” holy boldness. Oh, that we would have the kind of faith that David had. Today, hope. Lift up your head, be strong, be courageous; you are hoping in the Almighty God.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear Father, I am hoping in You today. Help me to be strong and courageous in all I do. In Jesus’ name.
AMEN

Good Morning

TODAY’S VERSE
Satisfy us each morning with your unfailing love
Psalms 90:14 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
Every morning is a new day. But often, our routines, thoughts, predicament, and attitudes may be the same. Depression, anxiety, confusion can settle in with that first cup of coffee. Lack of purpose, regrets, a suffocating realization that life is passing us by may have us in a spiritual stupor. However, there is hope. God is here. As sure as the sun rises each day, God promised that He would never leave us or forsake us. Today’s verse is a cry out to God to satisfy the longings of our hearts with the realization of His unfailing love. Today can be different. Rise up, claim your birthright. You are a child of Almighty God, and this day He has visited you with His unfailing love.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear Father, thank You for this day. Come and satisfy me with your unfailing love. In Jesus’ name.
AMEN

My Refuge

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

TODAY’S THOUGHT
Fear is real. It is a major topic in the Bible. Did you know that “fear not” is one of the most frequent commands in the Bible? The people living in the Old Testament times knew what fears were. Wars, sickness, famines, poverty, violence, slavery were all around them, yet, look at their faith. In today’s passage, the Psalmist writes, “Do not be afraid of the terrors of the night, nor the arrow that flies in the day. Do not dread the disease that stalks in darkness, nor the disaster that strikes at midday. Though a thousand fall at your side, though ten thousand are dying around you, these evils will not touch you.” What confidence in God. Today say with the Psalmist, “This I declare about the LORD: He alone is my refuge, my place of safety; He is my God, and I trust him.”

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear Father, Almighty God, my Savior, and Lord. Thank You for being my refuge, my place of safety. Today I put my trust in You.
AMEN

Don’t Fear

TODAY’S VERSE
But Jesus spoke to them at once. “Don’t be afraid,” he said. “Take courage! I am here!”
Mark 7:50 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
Jesus told the Disciples to take their boat to the other side of the Lake. While they were on their way, a large storm came down upon them. They were afraid enough by the storm, but then around 3:00 a.m., they thought they saw a ghost when Jesus came walking on the water to their boat! They were terrified. Jesus, seeing their fear doesn’t rebuke them but rather says to them, “Don’t be afraid. Take courage! I am here!” He says the same to you. What storm of life has you shaking in the back of the boat? What is keeping you up at three in the morning? Today, hear Jesus say to you, “Don’t be afraid! Take courage! I am here!”

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear Jesus, You know those things that frighten me. Help me take courage today knowing that you are with me.
AMEN

How Do You Fight Your Battles?

TODAY’S VERSE
When the servant of the man of God got up early the next morning and went outside, there were troops, horses, and chariots everywhere. “Oh, sir, what will we do now?” the young man cried to Elisha. “Don’t be afraid!” Elisha told him. “For there are more on our side than on theirs!”
II Kings 6:15-16 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
How do you fight your battles? Here we see a situation that Elisha finds himself in. The King of Aram was trying to defeat the Israelites, but God would share it with Elisha every time they had a plan, who would then tell the King of Israel. The King of Aram was sure that he has a traitor in his court, but everyone insisted that it was the Prophet, Elisha. So, the King, in his anger, sent his troops to seize Elisha. Elisha’s servant got up in the morning and had a rude awakening when he went outside. Troops, horses and chariots surrounded them. Now Elisha was already aware of his plight. Did he get his sword? Did he get the Armies? No, he had a different plan. He gave the battle to God and leaned upon him. You see, Elisha saw what the real reality was. God had already revealed to Elisha what he prayed for his servant. Elisha prayed, “O LORD, open his eyes and let him see!” The LORD opened the young man’s eyes, and when he looked up, he saw that the hillside around Elisha was filled with horses and chariots of fire. God was in Elisha’s battle plans. He asked God to intervene and deliver him, and that is what God did. We need to bring our battles to God. Yes, a mighty army may come against us, but the real truth is that the Army of God surrounds us. Today, might we rise in faith and cry out, “The Battle is the Lords!”

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, open my eyes that I can see you in all my battles. You are there. You surround me with Your love and might. Help me trust in you.
AMEN

You Can Have Real Peace

TODAY’S VERSE
You will keep in perfect peace all who trust in you, all whose thoughts are fixed on you! Isaiah 26:3

TODAY’S THOUGHT
How are you affected by stress? We all have situations that get us down, emergencies that distract us and cause us to fret. Situations that anger us, others cause us grief. We become full of worry and anxiety. What are we to do? Isaiah has a word for us. It is as if God had him look ahead to today and say, “God will help you with all your stress. He will give you peace that passes all your understanding if you do one thing. Keep your thoughts fixed on God.” What a precious promise. What love and concern for us. Today, stop and focus on the Lord. When stress comes, keep your eyes on Him. You are not alone. He will keep you in peace.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear Father. Help me keep my mind on you. I ask You to keep my heart and my mind at peace today.
AMEN

You Are Not Alone

TODAY’S VERSE
So then, since we have a great High Priest who has entered heaven, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold firmly to what we believe. This High Priest of ours understands our weaknesses, for he faced all of the same testings we do, yet he did not sin. So let us come boldly to the throne of our gracious God. There we will receive his mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it most.”
Hebrew 4:14-16 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
How is it we end up believing we are so alone? Why do we feel we must face our problems by ourselves? With Christ, nothing could be farther from the truth. We have been invited to come boldly to the very presence of God. The truth is that Jesus knows what we are going through. He understands the trials and temptations that we face. He knows the emotional struggles we have. And He knows how to get through them. You are not alone. You can come to Him and receive the grace and help you need just when you need it. Today, come boldly to Jesus.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear Lord, I come to You today, knowing that you know all about me and my situation. Help me through this day. Give me the mercy and grace that you promised to give me when I need it the most. In Jesus’ name.
AMEN

Lead Me

TODAY’S VERSE
Show me the right path, O LORD; point out the road for me to follow. Lead me by your truth and teach me, for you are the God who saves me. All day long I put my hope in you.
Psalms 25:4-5

TODAY’S THOUGHT
It is so easy to lose our way. If not lost, then we just aren’t sure which way to go. Direction is so essential. I think I can make it down most paths if I was sure it was the one God wanted me to take. There is an assurance when you know He is directing you. There is peace when you know that He knows exactly where you are and what lies ahead. There is hope in the midst of each step when you know that God has said, “This is the way; walk in it.” So today, pray with the Psalmist. Cry out to God and say, “ Show me the right path, O LORD; point out the road for me to follow. Lead me by your truth and teach me, for you are the God who saves me. All-day long, I put my hope in you.”

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear God, please show me the right path to go on. Lead me by your truth and teach me, for I put my hope in you.
AMEN
