What Do You Want Him To Do For you?

TODAY’S VERSE
Two blind men were sitting by the roadside, and when they heard that Jesus was going by, they shouted, “Lord, Son of David, have mercy on us!” Jesus stopped and called them. “What do you want me to do for you?”
Matthew 20:30-32

TODAY’S THOUGHT
Deep down inside you know there has to be more. There must be a relief for your pain. Perhaps like two blind men on the side of the road, if you knew Jesus was coming, you would shout out to Him. In his book, The Church That Heals Doug Murren writes, “We need the miraculous in the church today. Postmodern people are too broken to be fixed through simple human caregiving; they need to be pieced back together through the Supernatural healing of Jesus through His body the church.” What is it you need today? Where are you hurting? Today Jesus is asking you the same thing that He asked the blind men, “What do you want me to do for you?”

TODAY’S PRAYER
Jesus, I am sitting here today by the side of the road. I am in great need. I have shouted for mercy and You have heard me. Help me to respond to Your question, What do you want me to do for you? In Jesus’ name.
AMEN

Cry Out To God

TODAY’S VERSE
Listen to my prayer for mercy as I cry out to you for help, as I lift my hands toward your holy sanctuary. – Praise the LORD! For he has heard my cry for mercy. The LORD is my strength and shield. I trust him with all my heart. He helps me, and my heart is filled with joy. I burst out in songs of thanksgiving.
Psalms 28:2, 7-8

TODAY’S THOUGHT
David knew what it was like to be tormented. He knew the pain that comes with great need. He experienced difficulties that had no escape, except by the mercy of an Almighty God. So David cried out to God for help. As David cried out to God, the Lord became his strength and protection. David trusted God with all his heart and the result was a deep spiritual joy. You see, God did not take David out of his situation. David still faced his problems, but instead of facing his situation on his own, he turned to God for strength. God protected David like a shield. Do you have a story similar to David? Are there times when you need to cry out to God for His mercy? Rest assured He hears you. You, too, can end up praising God for He promises that He will be your strength. He will be your shield. You can trust Him with your situation. When you do, you will experience the deep joy that can only come from God.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, I come to You today asking for Your mercy in my life. I thank You for hearing my cry and offering to be my strength and shield. I accept this promise and put all my trust in You. Thank You that I will not be disappointed. Fill my heart with a deep joy today so that I too will burst out with thanksgiving. In Jesus’ name.
AMEN

Rest For The Weary

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

The Pits

TODAY’S VERSE
I waited patiently for the LORD to help me, and he turned to me and heard my cry. He lifted me out of the pit of despair, out of the mud and the mire. He set my feet on solid ground and steadied me as I walked along. He has given me a new song to sing, a hymn of praise to our God. Many will see what he has done and be amazed. They will put their trust in the LORD.
Psalms 40:1-3 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
Have you found yourself in the pit? Does it seem like there is no way out? The walls are high and slippery, and every time you try to escape you slip back down? David knew exactly how you feel. There are many pits in life we can fall into. Emotional pits of bitterness, depression, fear. Financial pits of debt or inadequate income. Relational pits of alienation, fighting or loneliness. Career pits of unemployment or underemployment. The good news is that God knows about our situation. He is able to help us. As David waited patiently for God, God heard his cry. God lifted him out of the pit of despair and put him on solid ground. He can do the same for you. Cry out to God today. Tell Him about your situation. Share with Him how you feel. As you do, you will find God lifting you out of the pit you are in. He will put you on solid ground. He will give you a new song to sing. Best of all, as God works in your life, many will see what is happening and put their trust in God the same way you do. Give God your situation and begin to trust Him for deliverance today.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, You know the pit I am in. Please show me any participation I may have in this so I can repent of any of my doing that has kept me here. I ask You, Father to please lift me out of this. I will wait patiently for You, dear God, and trust You for Your deliverance. In Jesus’ name.
AMEN

Consider The Poor

TODAY’S VERSE
Command them to do good, to be rich in good deeds, and to be generous and willing to share.
I Timothy 6:18

TODAY’S THOUGHT
God created you for a great purpose. He created you to be His ambassador of love! All around us are people in need. No one is immune from heartache, illness or crisis. But there is a group of people close to the heart of God that He keeps reminding us of. It is the poor. It is so easy to forget, yet He doesn’t forget. And if we are going to be His disciples and do His business, then we must take serious God’s cry for us to help the poor and needy. Paul tells Timothy to command those with the means to do good. He wants us to be “rich” in good deeds and to be generous. God has called His children to be kind and compassionate to those in need. When we are kind to the poor, David reminds us that there is great joy! And it is true, there is great joy. Today ask God to help you find ways to help those that are less fortunate.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, I confess I get so wrapped up in my own life that I haven’t taken the time to consider the poor and needy. I worry about my own needs and do not feel the compassion I should for those in need. Please forgive me. Help me today to find something I can do. Guide me to someone who I can help. I want to be generous and willing to share with others in the way You have been so generous and loving to me.
In Jesus’ name. AMEN

A New Sphere

TODAY’S VERSE
You must grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
2 Peter 3:18 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
Peter is saying that we need to grow “in” grace. The normal use of the word “in” meant like walking through a door. You go into another room. You come and you go. But Peter is suggesting much more!!! Peter writes that we are to grow in Grace. He uses the other word for “in.” A word that means moving and living in a whole new sphere of reality. Peter is saying that as a Christian even though we are on earth we are living in another sphere or reality of God’s grace and knowledge. Grace is God’s favor, affection, mercy and thoughts toward you. Knowledge is “experientially knowing” something. It is a working knowledge gleaned from personal experience! Today, stop and realize where you live. You live in a spiritual sphere in which you grow in and have first-hand knowledge of God’s favor, affection and mercy. Welcome to this new world!

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear Father, thank You for inviting me to live in this new sphere of grace and knowledge. Help me enter into it fully and grow and mature in this atmosphere of Your favor, affection and mercy.
Amen

His Masterpiece

TODAY’S VERSE
For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.
Ephesians 2:10 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
There is something very personal about God planning out your life before you were born. Can you imagine? God thought of you and decided He would create you. But not just an ordinary run of the mill creation. A masterpiece. But chances are you don’t believe that. For some it is much worse. You think that God made a mistake with your life. Who was it that sold you that lie? How is it that you think you are inferior, no good, broken, less than what you should be? My friend, God did not make a mistake with you. He knew exactly what He was doing and it doesn’t matter what you have done with your life, this doesn’t change – God has created you to do all the good things He planned for you long ago! Today, meditate on this, you are His workmanship. He is proud of what He has created in you. And when you start to understand that, you can begin all those good things He designed you to do.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, thank You for purposely creating me as a masterpiece. Help me really grasp the reality of how You delight in me. Help me understand how You have designed me for doing good and show me what it is You want me to do with my life. In Jesus’ name.
AMEN
