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

Don’t Forget

TODAY’S VERSE
“If only the LORD had killed us back in Egypt,’” they moaned. “There we sat around pots filled with meat and ate all the bread we wanted. But now you have brought us into this wilderness to starve us all to death.”
Exodus 16:3

TODAY’S THOUGHT
One month after the Lord had delivered them from the hand of Pharaoh, the children of Israel found themselves in a desert. Did they remember the mighty miracles that God used to deliver them from slavery? Did they remember the dry ground they walked on that was once covered by the Red Sea? No, they forgot and complained to Moses that they would have been better off back in Egypt! What is it about our human nature that causes us to forget good things so quickly? Charles Spurgeon said it this way, “I don’t know which to marvel more at God’s faithfulness or man’s forgetfulness.” Why is this so important? Because remembering is key to our survival. God teaches us life lessons that are needed later in our life but our propensity is to forget. The lesson for the Israelites would be, “Don’t forget in the desert what you learned at the Red Sea.” What about you? Do you remember how faithful God has been to you in the past? Today, stop and remember all that God has done for you. Remember His faithfulness. Remember His provision. Remember His presence in times past and go forward in the reality that God is the same yesterday, today and forever.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, forgive me for my forgetfulness. Instead, Lord, help me remember all that You have done and all that You have promised. In Jesus’ name.
AMEN

TODAY’S VERSE
The one thing I ask of the LORD, the thing I seek most, is to live in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, delighting in the LORD’s perfections and meditating in his Temple. – My heart has heard you say, ‘Come and talk with me.’ And my heart responds, ‘LORD, I am coming.’”
Psalms 27:4, 8

TODAY’S THOUGHT
David was a shepherd boy who knew and loved God. Because of David’s heart toward God, God called David to be king of all Israel. And a great king he was. But more than a king, David remained a man that sought after the heart of God. I can imagine David in his palace, a long way from the cold nights in the fields with the sheep, wishing he was back in the fields with the stars in the sky, playing his harp and worshiping God. How his heart cried out, “I want to live in the house of the Lord, delighting in Him!” And that is what he did. In fact, his heart did become a house of God. From his heart, he wrote the Psalms. What an offering of worship and praise to God. God would invite us to do the same. What is in your heart? Is it a home for God? Is it a Temple of praise and thanksgiving? If not, it can be. Like David, God comes to you and says, “Come and talk with me.” When He does, respond like David and say, “Lord, I am coming.” Today, you can begin to be a “person after God’s own heart.”

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, You have bid me to come to You. I am coming even now. Like David, I want to be a person after Your own heart. I come today and ask You to take my heart and make it Your home. In Jesus’ name. AMEN

TODAY’S VERSE
And since we are his children, we are his heirs. In fact, together with Christ we are heirs of God’s glory. – And having chosen them, he called them to come to him. And having called them, he gave them right standing with himself. And having given them right standing, he gave them his glory. What shall we say about such wonderful things as these? If God is for us, who can ever be against us?
Romans 8:17, 30-31

TODAY’S THOUGHT
I don’t think we really understand who we are in Christ. If we did, the church would be a more powerful force in the world. Instead, we go around blinded to our true inheritance. We are like a child who, separated at birth from its father, the King, grows up never realizing the birthright that was his. Never accepts the reality that they are the child of a King. In his book When Heaven Invades Earth, Bill Johnson drives this point home. He writes, “At what point do we start thinking of our worth through His eyes? If it is true that the value of something is measured by what someone else will pay, then we need to rethink our worth. – Jesus paid the ultimate price to make it possible for us to have a change in our identity. – Doesn’t it honor Him more when His children no longer see themselves only as sinners saved by grace, but now heirs of God?” Today, let that fact sink in. You are God’s child. You are a co-heir with Christ in our Heavenly Kingdom. If God is for you, what in this world could possibly stand against you?

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, I have judged myself by so many false standards. I have seen myself with blurry vision. I have looked in a stained mirror never seeing what You see. Today, help me believe. Help me really understand that I am Your child, a joint heir with Christ. In Jesus’ name.
AMEN

TODAY’S VERSE
Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. I will be found by you.” declares the LORD.
Jeremiah 29:12-14

TODAY’S THOUGHT
There is a mystery to knowing God. His love draws us to Him. God has made it abundantly clear that “whosoever will” may come to Him; but this is the beginning, not the end. If we are to follow Him, be His disciple, take knowing Him seriously, then He demands preeminence in our life. Solomon knew this. He prayed for Godly wisdom. He sought it more than anything else God could offer him and God gave it to him. He writes that it is the same for us. We must want to know God more than anything else. We need to “call out for insight and cry aloud for understanding”. He assures us that knowing God will come when we look for Him like we would look for silver and search for Him like we would search for hidden treasure. Jeremiah says it another way. He says that we will find God when we seek Him with all our heart. How much have you wanted to know God? What treasure are you seeking? What has your heart sought after? If God is going to be a serious part of your life, if you are going to live in His wisdom, then you must make knowing Him a priority. God didn’t say we had to be smart, wise, rich, talented or gifted to know Him. The only requirement is desire. Turn your desire toward God. When you do, He promises, “I will be found by you.”

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, I admit I have let my desire wander. I have sought for fools’ gold. I have put other priorities ahead of knowing You. I come today and seek You with all my heart. Father, I yearn for Your wisdom. I desire to have understanding. I want to know You more than anything else. Teach me, guide me, lead me. I pray this in the precious name of Jesus.
AMEN
