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
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
If we claim we have no sin, we are only fooling ourselves and not living in the truth. But if we confess our sins to him, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all wickedness.
I John 1:8-9 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
Sometimes it is so hard to deal with our inconsistencies. You know those times we stumble, do the things we shouldn’t and then kick ourselves. Thank God there is a better way to handle our “sins”. The secret is to stop when we have a moment of sanity. When the Holy Spirit convicts us, we need to confess to God and acknowledge our wrongdoing. “Father, I was wrong, forgive me!” Next, we need to repent, that is to make up our mind that with God’s grace we will stop. Finally, we need to renew our commitment and make steps toward correcting our behavior. Jude says that we can have confidence in having God’s help. He writes, “Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy.” God is able to help us live in victory and freedom. The outcome is that we can walk in forgiveness and freedom. Yes, we have sinned, but God has forgiven and cleansed us from all wrongdoing. Today, let us live in true forgiveness and freedom.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, forgive me for those sins that so easily trip me up. I confess my wrongdoing. Help me, Lord. Keep me from falling. Cleanse my heart as I renew my commitment to You.
AMEN

TODAY’S VERSE
He chose to give birth to us by giving us his true word. And we, out of all creation, became his prized possession.
James 1:18 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
What a marvelous plan. How can a Holy God, who gave us a free will to live the way we choose, allow us to live in our human sinfulness? How can He reconcile His love for us? James says it is by offering us a second birth. By using our human choice, God gives us the option to become His child and be born again by His Spirit. Jesus said it first. He told a ruler of the religious group of His day, “I tell you the truth, unless you are born again, you cannot see the Kingdom of God.” The Scriptures makes it plain that Christ’s sacrifice for our sins cleanses us from all our unrighteousness. Jesus again said, “For God loved the world so much that he gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life.” His love validates what James wrote, “We, out of all creation, became His prized possession.” Today, believe it, rejoice in it, live like it is true. You are His prized possession!

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear Jesus, thank You for becoming a sacrifice for me. Thank You for making it possible that I could be born again. Help me today to believe what You came to tell me; because of You, I am one of God’s prized possessions. Bless You, my dear Lord.
AMEN

TODAY’S VERSE
We know how much God loves us, and we have put our trust in his love. – Such love has no fear, because perfect love expels all fear.
I John 4:16, 18 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
Depending upon our upbringing we bonded with our caregivers one of two ways. We either had a strong bond based on love or we had a bond that was based on fear. A fear bond is based on the fear of rejection, punishment, abandonment or shame. A fear bond is insidious. Like Pavlov’s dogs we are conditioned to respond to fear stimuli. Years later it leaves us vulnerable, destined to perfectionism or people pleasing, anxious, never believing that we are unconditionally loved. But Hallelujah, God isn’t finished with us yet! David wrote, “Though my father and mother forsake me, the LORD will receive me.” John wrote in today’s verse, “We know how much God loves us, and we have put our trust in his love.” And here is the clincher, “Such love has no fear, because perfect love expels all fear.” I love it. What does fear have to be afraid of? Love! God’s love for us is able to expel any and every “fear bond.” Today, examine your heart. Is there fear? Are you living in constant anxiety over rejection, shame, or abandonment? Cast it away and embrace God’s love for you. His love will expel all your fear.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear Father, I come to You, calling You Father. Not a father that I have to please or fear, but a Heavenly Father, that has an unconditional love for me. Cast out all fear from my heart I pray. In Jesus’ name.
AMEN

TODAY’S VERSE
The LORD your God is in your midst, a mighty one who will save; he will rejoice over you with gladness; he will quiet you by his love;
he will exult over you with loud singing.
Zephaniah 3:17 (ESV)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
It is one thing to think of how we should devote our lives to God. It is another to think of how God devotes His life to us! Zephaniah was telling a broken and disheartened people not to despair. Not to worry for God cares for you. He told them that God was in their midst and that He was mighty to save them. Then Zephaniah painted a word picture that should have filled them with joy. He told them that God Himself rejoiced over each and every one of them. That God personally would quiet their hearts with His love and that when it is all said and done, if they would listen, that they could hear Almighty God praising each of them with singing. What a picture. What a reality. Today, know that God loves you, He rejoices over you with gladness and He is singing praises all about the love He has for you.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, how my heart rejoices in knowing that You care so much for me. How can I even begin to fathom it? Today, dear Lord, open my eyes that I can truly see the love You have for me. Thank You, Lord!
AMEN
