TODAY’S VERSE
And so, dear brothers and sisters, we can boldly enter heaven’s Most Holy Place because of the blood of Jesus. By his death, Jesus opened a new and life-giving way through the curtain into the Most Holy Place. And since we have a great High Priest who rules over God’s house, let us go right into the presence of God with sincere hearts fully trusting him.
Hebrews 10:19-22 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
There is a Holy Place. Far beyond the vastness of the universe, before eternity ever started, beyond any form of comprehension, there is God. And this God allows all that He is, to become exposed to all that we are. We with our humanness, our finite, fickle, sinful selves are allowed to enter the Holy Place through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. How marvelous, how wonderful, how unbelievable that we can “go right into the presence of God with sincere hearts fully trusting Him.” Today, enter the Holy Place and commune with the Holy God, fully trusting that He has bid you to come.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Holy Father, who am I that You would allow me to enter into Your Holy Place? Thanks be to You and Your Son Jesus Christ who died in my place that I might be made holy in Your sight. Thank You for bidding me to come and fellowship with You. I come, Dear Father, fully trusting in Your love and forgiveness.

TODAY’S VERSE
You inspect the breaks in the walls of Jerusalem. You store up water in the lower pool. You survey the houses and tear some down for stone to strengthen the walls. Between the city walls, you build a reservoir for water from the old pool. But you never ask for help from the One who did all this. You never considered the One who planned this long ago.
Isaiah 22:9-11 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
There is a great tension between trusting God and doing things by ourself. The old adage, “Pray as if everything depended on God and works as if everything depended on you,” sounds good but is it really what God wants? Yes, we should pray and ask God for His guidance, and yes we should work hard at what He has called us to do. But it is not like the prayer at the beginning of a meal. At mealtime we give thanks and then go about eating our food. However for our life concerns and projects we pray over what we are about to do and then remain in continuous prayer as we participate with God in what He has called us to do. The Israelites trusted God as they began to work on the walls of Jerusalem, but somewhere between planning and building, they left God out of it. Isaiah wrote, “Between the city walls, you build a reservoir for water from the old pool. But you never ask for help from the One who did all this. You never considered the One who planned this long ago.” Today, as you go about your day, as you attack the plans that God has given you, consider Him. This is a new day; make Him the Lord of it and seek Him in all you do.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear God, forgive me for running ahead of You. I desire to live for You and yet it seems I live my life without You. Help me. Guide me by Your Holy Spirit so that I keep You Lord of all I do. Help me to live for Your glory. In Jesus’ name.
AMEN

TODAY’S VERSE
Let us think of ways to motivate one another to acts of love and good works.
Hebrews 10:24 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
Jesus never intended us to be church dwellers. He wanted us to be field workers. He didn’t go around setting up new synagogues in His name so we could worship. Instead, He called us to participate in His mission to reach a lost world with the good news of the gospel. Now assembling together to worship, learn and encourage one another is definitely important. Right after today’s passage the author writes, “And let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage one another.” However, if you really want to know what is near to the heart of Jesus, read Matthew chapter nine. Matthew wrote, “Jesus traveled through all the towns and villages of that area, teaching in the synagogues and announcing the Good News about the Kingdom. And he healed every kind of disease and illness.” The author of Hebrews compels us to do the same today. He wrote, “Let us think of ways to motivate one another to acts of love and good works.” Today, let’s be active in our Savior’s mission.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear Jesus, Your compassion is boundless and Your mission is clear. Help me to live like You. Help me love and serve others like You did. Guide me, Lord, and empower me with Your Holy Spirit I pray.
AMEN

TODAY’S VERSE
You hide them in the shelter of your presence.
Psalms 31:20 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
It is hard to fathom how magnificent God really is. He is so great that when Elijah was at a mountain speaking to God, all God had to do was pass by and there was a great wind, earthquake and fire. Moses knew God perhaps more than any living man so when he was ready to take the people into the wilderness, He begged God to be present with them. As an assurance Moses asked God to show him His presence. God replied, “I will make all my goodness pass before you, and I will call out my name, Yahweh, before you.- But you may not look directly at my face, for no one may see me and live.” As well, David, a man whom the Bible says “was a man after God’s own heart,” comes to God in the midst of all his trouble and says, “How great is the goodness you have stored up for those who fear you. You lavish it on those who come to you for protection, blessing them before the watching world. You hide them in the shelter of your presence.” God’s presence, how mighty, how breathtaking, how personal and how available. Come to God today. Join Elijah, Moses and David and enjoy the shelter of God’s presence.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Oh Father, how I thank You for the death of Your Son, Jesus, so I can come boldly into Your presence and find all the love, peace and joy I will ever need. Let me sense Your presence in my life today. In Jesus’ name.
AMEN

TODAY’S VERSE
I will – transform the Valley of Trouble into a gateway of hope.
Hosea 2:15 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
We have our valleys of trouble don’t we. In this particular passage the troubles were self inflicted. How many times have we been the cause of our own troubles? And yet, God’s mercies are not shaken. His love for us does not stop! Instead, He turns our valley of trouble into a gateway of hope. What a beautiful metaphor. A gateway is an escape from trouble and a doorway to hope. Isn’t that how God works? He takes our smallest step toward escape and turns it into a journey of hope. Today, no matter what trouble you have, no matter how hopeless it seems, God wants to give you a way out. You may be in a deep, deep valley of trouble, but today God wants to turn it into a gateway of hope. Come and let Him transform your trouble.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear Father, You know the trouble I have. You have said that You would transform my valley of troubles into a gateway of hope. How I need that transformation. Work in my heart now, dear Lord. Show me the way, that I may follow it, and find the peace, joy and rest I have been looking for.
AMEN

TODAY’S VERSE
Worship the LORD in the splendor of his holiness.
Psalms 29:2 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
We were made to worship God. How can this be? We are so finite, so far from God. Yet in all our finiteness there is something in us that yearns to connect to the divine. There is a part of us that wants to know that there is more than this life of human frailty and a fatalistic outlook. We desire to know that there is a plan and a master creator behind the plan. David knew this and invites us to participate in the secret to life. David bids us to come and worship God in the splendor of His Holiness. What is so ironic is that God’s Holiness, in its purest form, is unknowable by human understanding. God’s Holiness is the attribute that makes Him transcendent and separate from all else. Likewise, His wisdom, knowledge, power, love and purity are way beyond our comprehension. And so we worship. We come to God with a reverent honor and adoring reverence and know with our spirit what we cannot always know with our mind. And God, in His great love for us, allows us to love and adore Him. Come today and tell God how much you love Him. Worship the LORD in the splendor of his holiness.

TODAY’S PRAYER
My Lord and my God. Though I cannot begin to understand the depths of who You are, I worship You today in the splendor of Your Holiness. In Jesus’ name.
AMEN

TODAY’S VERSE
Even if that person wrongs you seven times a day and each time turns again and asks forgiveness, you must forgive.” The apostles said to the Lord, “Show us how to increase our faith.”
Luke 17:4-5 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
Whoever said forgiveness was easy didn’t have much to forgive. It can be hard, very hard, especially when we try to do it by ourselves. That’s why Jesus was challenging His disciples to be bold in their forgiveness. He said, “Even if a person asks forgiveness seven times a day you must forgive!” I love the response of the disciples. They asked for more faith. Why did they do that? Because forgiveness is more divine than human. Forgiveness is all about faith. When our armor of rules, safety and protection is compromised; when all sense of right and wrong is violated; when our belief in a sensible world is shattered, it is hard to forgive someone. And it is hard to believe what we thought was true about God and the world we live in, are still true. It takes faith to trust God when we have been wounded. It takes faith when we have to return an act of hate with an act of love. It takes faith when our soul cries for revenge, justice and punishment and God calls for grace. We need faith to believe that God knows, God cares and that God will heal, rebuild and restore us. So today, search your heart. Is there someone you need to forgive? Ask God for faith.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father God, increase my faith in who You are and Your Supernatural love for me. Help me trust You so I can let go and forgive those that I have refused to forgive. Help me see Your ways and not mine. Help me to forgive others in the same way You have forgiven me.
In Jesus’ name.
AMEN
