TODAY’S VERSE
Taste and see that the LORD is good; blessed is the man who takes refuge in him.
Psalms 34:8

TODAY’S THOUGHT
Have you ever stopped to think how many different ways you can experience the Lord? Worship is multi-dimensional. With the use of our mind, God has allowed us the capacity to really know Him and love Him. Certainly we can read His word. God does speak to us through the scriptures. What He has written connects with us in a personal way. We can sense His presence. He is the God of all comfort and the Holy Spirit bears witness with our spirit that He is God. We can hear His voice. Whether it is a still soft voice deep in our soul or, as some have heard, an audible voice, or a deep impression, God speaks to us. We can see His glory; either through a beautiful sunset or a significant moment where we recognize the hand of God. We can also use our inner mind and see Him with the eyes of our heart. We can sense that God is weighty, that He has substance. Today, determine to start spending time with God and worship Him with the different senses. Love Him, worship Him, and experience Him today. Oh that you would taste of the Lord and know that He is good.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, I give myself to You. I want to know You in all of Your fullness. Help me worship You in new and fresh ways. Enlarge my capacity to know You, that I might love You more and more. In Jesus’ name.
AMEN

TODAY’S VERSE
This is what the LORD says: “Don’t let the wise boast in their wisdom, or the powerful boast in their power, or the rich boast in their riches. But those who wish to boast should boast in this alone: that they truly know me and understand that I am the LORD who demonstrates unfailing love and who brings justice and righteousness to the earth.”
Jeremiah 9:23-24

TODAY’S THOUGHT
“Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth.” This is one of the beatitudes that Jesus taught us. God puts a premium on humility which runs counter to worldly wisdom. In modern society, there is a premium put on “bragging rights.” Kudos are given to the person who is a success. We live for that elusive fifteen minutes of fame. Why? Because we want to feel important and appreciated. But God offers a better way. He says not to boast in our wisdom, power or riches, instead we are to boast in the fact that we know Him as our Lord. What makes this so exciting is that the very thing that we are looking for, love and acceptance, is found in Jesus Christ. We can boast in the fact that God loves us with unfailing love. We don’t have to earn it. We can tell everyone that we don’t have to perform to certain expectations. We can let everyone know that God loves us unconditionally. So today, boast about His grace and all the love He has for you.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, forgive me for bragging about my own abilities. Forgive me for putting such high importance on my own possessions and accomplishments. Instead, I want to praise You, dear Lord, and will boast about Your unfailing love for me.
AMEN

TODAY’S VERSE
All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right. God uses it to prepare and equip his people to do every good work.
II Timothy 3:16-17

TODAY’S THOUGHT
How often do we pray for direction? How many times do we just long to hear God’s voice? How many times a week do we cry out for wisdom? The good news is that God has created a way to speak to us, give us wisdom and guide us. It is through His written word, the Bible. Paul was telling Timothy how important the Bible was. He shared that the Bible is inspired by God for the purpose of teaching us, convicting us, correcting us and equipping us for His service. There is no other source that God uses to communicate to us more effectively. Through the power and guidance of the Holy Spirit, God is able to speak to us in a personal and intimate way. It is easy to get busy and a day goes by, then two, pretty soon a week, then a month. Before you know it, you are not spending any time getting to know God or His word. We were not meant to live life without His inspired word. It is like going through life with a hole in your heart. Instead, let God fill the emptiness. Get a Bible and each day start spending a few minutes letting God teach you. He will. He longs to fellowship with you and teach you. Why not start today?

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear God, thank you for the Bible. I know that it was written to give me wisdom and guidance. Help me to read it, learn it and use it every day. In Jesus’ name.
AMEN

TODAY’S VERSE
Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.
Matthew 11:28-30

TODAY’S THOUGHT
It is easy to get weary. There are so many demands on our life. We live at such a fast pace, burning the candle at both ends. The result is that we end up tired much of the time. Where do you turn? Where do you turn for relief, comfort, and escape from all the pressure? If not careful, you can find yourself victim to addictions, unhealthy relationships or negative emotions. But Jesus has a better way. He says, “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened and I will give you rest.” More than that, Jesus invites you to learn from Him. His teaching is easy and His burden is light. So today, turn to Jesus. Bring your weary self to Him. Give Him your circumstances your thoughts and your emotions. Surrender yourself to His care. He promises that you will find rest for your soul.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, You know my condition. I am weary and in need of renewal. You have invited me to come to You for rest, so I come. I know that You are gentle and humble in heart and will give me rest for my soul. I put my self into Your capable hands. Help me and heal me. In Jesus’ name. AMEN

Lead Me

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 in 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, the 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 warn us not to lean on our own understanding instead we need 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
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
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 nowhere 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
