TODAY’S VERSE
Even before he made the world, God loved us and chose us in Christ to be holy and without fault in his eyes. God decided in advance to adopt us into his own family by bringing us to himself through Jesus Christ. This is what he wanted to do, and it gave him great pleasure.
Ephesians 1:4-5 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
I am convinced, if we would believe today’s verse with our whole heart, there would be no depression, no anxiety, no lasting emotional dysfunction. But it is hard to believe with a wounded heart. It is hard to stop and consider God’s love when we are in emotional pain. And so we go through life, like a person dying of poison, who has the antidote right in front of them, but is too disoriented to take it. But please hear me, there is hope. I have found, with every person I have ever worked with, that there is a moment of clarity, where, if they listen, if they stop, if they consider the truth, it will set them free. And today, this is the truth about you – even before God made the world He loved you! He chose you to be His own child. He decided long ago to make you His very own. Why? Because He wanted to! And even more, you bring God great pleasure! So today, rejoice. Embrace the truth; let it stir deep into your heart. You are God’s beloved. He has chosen to love you. And you, just as you are, bring Him great pleasure.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Oh, dear Jesus. Open my eyes. Help me see. Help me believe; help me know deep in my heart how much You love me. You love me and loving me brings You great pleasure. Thank You for this wonderful truth. In Jesus’ name.
AMEN

TODAY’S VERSE
I pray that from his glorious, unlimited resources he will empower you with inner strength through his Spirit. Then Christ will make his home in your hearts as you trust in him. Your roots will grow down into God’s love and keep you strong.”
Ephesians 3:16-17 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
Our inward journey greatly affects our outward one. How we live is dependent on how we think and feel. If we live in the truth, if we know that we are loved, if we have the resilience to bounce back from painful emotions we will find our outward journey one of peace and joy, the abundant life Christ talked about. However, if we allow life with its trauma, to sicken our inner life, we will find ourself living with festering emotional wounds, lies and dysfunctional behavior. Paul had the cure to an unhealthy inner life. He believed that God, with everything He is, wants to influence everything we are. Therefore, he prayed that we would allow the Holy Spirit’s unlimited resources to empower us and give us inner strength. He prayed that we would trust Christ and let Him live at home in our heart. He prayed that we would let our roots grow deep down into God’s love. If we do these things through prayer, meditation and reflection, Paul promises that God Himself will keep us Spiritually strong.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, please empower me with inner strength through Your Holy Spirit. Please make Your home in my heart and help my roots grow deep down into Your love. In Jesus’ name.
AMEN

TODAY’S VERSE
He revealed his character to Moses and his deeds to the people of Israel.
Psalms 103:7 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
I love the fact that God reveals Himself to us. He revealed His character to Moses and the children of Israel. God revealed Himself to David. Look at what David writes, “He forgives all my sins and heals all my diseases. He redeems me from death and crowns me with love and tender mercies. He fills my life with good things. He is compassionate and merciful, slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love. He does not punish us for all our sins; he does not deal harshly with us, as we deserve. His unfailing love toward those who fear him is as great as the height of the heavens above the earth. He has removed our sins as far from us as the east is from the west. The LORD is like a father to his children, tender and compassionate to those who fear him.” Paul insists that God can reveal Himself to us. He writes, “And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is. May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully.” Today, might you take the time and interest and allow God to reveal Himself to you.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, reveal Yourself to me. Help me know the heights and depths of Your compassion. Help me grasp the greatness of Your mercy and forgiveness. Move in my heart I pray and help me know You more.
AMEN

TODAY’S VERSE
His son said to him, ‘Father, I have sinned against both heaven and you, and I am no longer worthy of being called your son. “But his father said to the servants, ‘Quick! Bring the finest robe in the house and put it on him. Get a ring for his finger and sandals for his feet. And kill the calf we have been fattening. We must celebrate with a feast, for this son of mine was dead and has now returned to life. He was lost, but now he is found.’ So the party began.
Luke 15:21-24 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
Shame can keep us from the party. Jesus told a story about a young man who leaves home disgracing his family and squandering all his inheritance. The young man ended up with no friends, no family and no future. He is feeding pigs for a farmer and is tempted to eat the pig’s food. Full of shame, he decides to go home. In his shame he rehearses his remorse in the form of a speech to give to his father. He heads home but when his dad sees him way off in the distance, the father runs toward him. Now shame kept the son from running toward the father. Shame kept him from embracing him. Shame gave a speech of defeat and disownment. Had shame had its way the son would have become a servant. But the grace of the Father gave the son a robe. Grace put a ring on his finger. Grace put sandals on his feet. Grace gave him back his honor again. Grace threw a party. The son could not deny his father’s grace. Don’t let shame rob you of your Father’s grace. Everyday God has a party just for you. Isn’t it time you went?

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, thank You for Your grace. Thank You for rejoicing over me. Forgive me for not celebrating. Forgive me for being so wrapped up in myself. Today, I accept Your loving grace and forgiveness. Today, I come to the party You are having for me.
AMEN

TODAY’S VERSE
The words I speak are not my own, but my Father who lives in me does his work through me.
John 14:10 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
It is a mystery. God has created us so we can partner with Him in His work. What a privilege; what a joy to be part of God’s very plan and movement in this world. That is what Jesus did. He acted out what the Heavenly Father orchestrated in Him and then tells us how to do the same. He said, “Anyone who believes in me will do the same works I have done, and even greater works. You can ask for anything in my name, and I will do it, so that the Son can bring glory to the Father. Yes, ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it!” We will do even greater things than Jesus did as we ask for things that bring glory to the Father. Today, ask God to glorify Himself in your life and may you continue the ministry of Jesus.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Oh Father, through the power of the Holy Spirit who lives in me, I pray that I would bring You glory in all that I do. I pray that You would live Your will in and through me. In Jesus’ name I pray.
AMEN

TODAY’S VERSE
He has brought you into his own presence, and you are holy and blameless as you stand before him without a single fault. But you must continue to believe this truth and stand firmly in it.
Colossians 1:22-23 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
What you do with truth can make all the difference in the world. Truth is meant to be deeply believed. This is more than a mental assent. Sacred truth, life changing truth, is meant to be acted on. You must choose, commit and continue in the truth that He loves you, forgives you and wants a wonderful relationship with you. Really knowing Christ’s love means you repent and rebound from any sin in your life. This life altering truth enables you to be in His presence praying and opening up to Him about your feelings. Today, begin to believe, really believe. Stand firmly on the truth that He loves you, forgives you and has made you blameless in His sight.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, teach me to know, believe and live out the truth of Your love for me. Help the truth of your forgiveness and desire for my fellowship with You, go deep into my heart. Help me stand firmly on the fact that, really love me.”
AMEN

TODAY’S VERSE
I will never forget this awful time, as I grieve over my loss. Yet I still dare to hope when I remember this: The faithful love of the LORD never ends! His mercies never cease. Great is his faithfulness; his mercies begin afresh each morning.
Lamentations 3:19-23 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
Life has its share of trials. It can become confusing and leave us bitter. All the while we are taught not to complain, not to express our anger or disappointment. And I understand. We are to live by faith, we are to trust in the Lord. But trust comes from an honest relationship with God even when we don’t understand everything there is to know. Lamenting was common in the Bible. Many of the Psalms were outright displays of painful emotions. There is something about being honest with God about our emotion that brings a freedom and an ability to have a little more understanding of God’s mystery. Jeremiah knew grief and disappointment and he cried out to God. He wrote, “I am the one who has seen the afflictions that come from the rod of the LORD’s anger. He has led me into darkness, shutting out all light. – He has walled me in, and I cannot escape. He has bound me in heavy chains. And though I cry and shout, he has shut out my prayers. He has blocked my way with a high stone wall; he has made my road crooked.” But after sharing his deep pain with God, God allowed Him to come to a deeper understanding of spiritual truth. Jeremiah finishes his lament writing, “Yet I still dare to hope when I remember this: The faithful love of the LORD never ends! His mercies never cease. Great is his faithfulness; his mercies begin afresh each morning.” Today, bring your burdens to God. Share with Him your disappointment and grief and let Him show you a deeper truth.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear Father, there are so many things I don’t understand. My heart has its deep hurts and pain. Help me to share with You, be honest with You and then in Your mercy, heal my soul with Your restorative grace.
AMEN
