TODAY’S VERSE
Pursue righteousness and a godly life, along with faith, love, perseverance, and gentleness.
I Timothy 6:11 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
What are you pursuing? What demands your attention and devotion? What occupies your time? What do you spend your resources on? What area of your life gets your very best? The answer to these questions speak volumes about your spirituality. Paul, speaking to Timothy, encourages him to spend his life pursuing spiritual goals. He writes that he should pursue righteousness and a Godly life. In doing that he also tells him to pursue faith, love, perseverance and gentleness. Could Paul be serious? What about fame, wealth, knowledge, success, significance and security? What about a hundred other noble goals? But what if we pursued Paul’s list, what would happen? What would we end up like? I am convinced, if we focused all our intentions on the list Paul gives us, our life would be of the highest calling. We would be living life the way Jesus did. There are many good pursuits but there is only one life on this earth. Why settle for second best? If we believe anything about Christianity, then let’s pursue a life like His. Today, make it a goal in everything you do to pursue righteousness, Godliness, faith, love, perseverance and gentleness.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, help me pursue You and the life You want me to live. Help me live the way Jesus did. I need Your Holy Spirit to guide me, help me and give me the strength to pursue a godly life, faith, love, perseverance, and gentleness. In Jesus’ name.
AMEN

TODAY’S VERSE
Let each generation tell its children of your mighty acts; let them proclaim your power. – Your awe-inspiring deeds will be on every tongue; I will proclaim your greatness. Everyone will share the story of your wonderful goodness; they will sing with joy about your righteousness.
Psalms 145:4, 6-7 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
Good news travels fast, spreading from one person to another. A bargain sale, a hit song, a good movie, a medicine that really works. People don’t have to beg us to tell them, we volunteer. We share what impacts us and is good for others. But what of God? Have we let Him impact our life? Is our relationship with Him worth telling others? God’s mighty works have always been on the tongues of men. Today He is still wondrous. The “good news” of Christ’s message is still good news today. He loves us unconditionally and gave His life on the cross that we might be forgiven of all our sins. He gives purpose and meaning and heals our broken hearts. He cares and provides for our needs. This is the message that we must proclaim: “God is alive and He loves mankind.” David said, “Let each generation tell.” Today, it is our turn.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Lord Jesus, thank You for all You are and what You have done for me. Thank You for Your love and forgiveness. Help me share Your good news with others that they, too, might share in Your goodness.
AMEN

My Unbelief

TODAY’S VERSE
“Have mercy on us and help us, if you can.” “What do you mean, If I can?” Jesus asked. “Anything is possible if a person believes.”
The father instantly cried out, “I do believe, but help me overcome my unbelief!”
Mark 9:22-24 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
How many times do I question God? I come up against a wall and I start to doubt. At first it seems like it is a doubt of God’s ability. I am like the person in today’s verse, “Have mercy on us and help us, if you can.” But do I really doubt His power? I believe in a God who can. I have read the Bible. I have read the accounts of God doing the miraculous. So, what do I doubt? If I am honest I have to admit that I doubt God’s desire to help me. I doubt the depth and power of God’s love. The father was asking for mercy. He knew that God had the ability to be merciful. Perhaps what he was really asking was, “Be merciful if you can find it in your heart to do it.” It was more a question of God’s will than His ability. And I wonder which the bigger offense to God is? That I doubt His power or I doubt His desire? I seem to doubt God’s love for me more than I do His ability to do great and mighty things. Either way, I find myself in conflict and must cry out to God saying the same thing the father did, “I do believe, but help me overcome my unbelief!” Today, might we search our heart and believe both in God’s ability and desire.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, I believe but help my unbelief. Teach me more about You and Your great heart and desire so I can believe You for great and mighty things.
AMEN

TODAY’S VERSE
Have you never heard? Have you never understood? The LORD is the everlasting God, the Creator of all the earth. He never grows weak or weary. No one can measure the depths of his understanding. He gives power to the weak and strength to the powerless.
Isaiah 40:28-29 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
God was frustrated with His people. They had wandered far from Him. They would not listen to God so He sent His prophet Isaiah to ask the people, “Have you never heard? Have you never understood?” We would do well to ask ourselves these same questions whenever we read God’s word. We get so busy, so inwardly focused, that even when we read His word, we do not hear. We do not understand. We don’t begin to fathom the ramifications of the tremendous promises He gives us. In today’s passage God wanted to emphasis His patience, love, strength and commitment toward those in need. The prophet writes, “The LORD is the everlasting God, the Creator of all the earth. He never grows weak or weary. No one can measure the depths of his understanding. He gives power to the weak and strength to the powerless.” Unlike the Israelites, did you hear it? Did you understand? God is GOD! And God never grows weary of you. He wants to love and help you. He is never weak, not for a second! And He has all the power to help you in your situation. He fully understands where you are and wants to give you all the strength you will ever need to face the situation you are in. Rest assured God gives His power to us when we are totally weak and powerless. Today, might we hear His voice and understand His great love for us.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father God, help me to hear You. Help me to understand the depths of Your word. Help me know Your truth. Guide me by Your Holy Spirit, I pray.
AMEN

TODAY’S VERSE
But in my distress I cried out to the LORD; yes, I prayed to my God for help. He heard me from his sanctuary; my cry to him reached his ears.
Psalms 18:6 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
I love hope. I need hope. Everyday is new and so are the challenges. And there are a lot of things we can do to help ourself get through the morass of issues and concerns that face us. There are a lot of different techniques and systems that will help us. New ways of thinking, new tools. But one thing surpasses every coping mechanism, every strategy, every technique, every method of problem solving. It is our relationship with God. David knew this. He was a doer. He knew how to solve problems, yet when he was in severe crises, there was one place he went to over and over again. He went to God. He went to the arms of his good shepherd. And God heard him. He writes, “Yes, I prayed to my God for help. He heard me from his sanctuary; my cry to him reached his ears.” His cries reached the ears of Heaven. So will yours. Today, don’t stop whatever is helping you but add to it the one thing that can make all the difference. In all your striving add hope. Cry out to the Lord, you will reach His ears.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear Father, I come to You. I come and present all my needs, all my concerns. I cannot make it without You. I cry out and I know You hear me. Comfort me even today, Lord. In Jesus’ name.
AMEN

TODAY’S VERSE
You light a lamp for me. The LORD, my God, lights up my darkness. In your strength I can crush an army; with my God I can scale any wall.
Psalms 18:28-29 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
David’s faith in God is infectious. He shares how dire his situation is when he writes, “The ropes of death entangled me; floods of destruction swept over me. The grave wrapped its ropes around me; death laid a trap in my path.” And yet David trusts in God. Not just trust, David gushes with optimism. Verse after verse gives hope in the God who cares, the God who is able. When there is darkness in his life, God provides light. When there is an army, God gives him strength. When there is a wall in front of him, God enables him to scale it. David writes, “God arms me with strength, and he makes my way perfect. He makes me as surefooted as a deer, enabling me to stand on mountain heights.” You may have problems, struggles abound and difficulties are all around; but today, trust in God like David did. Put your faith in God. He will make a way.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear God Almighty, I need Your strength today. I need Your light in my darkness, I need Your help to scale the walls in front of me. Lord, give me the faith I need so I can say with confidence, “With God I can.”
AMEN

new-2TODAY’S VERSE
So the LORD must wait for you to come to him so he can show you his love and compassion. For the LORD is a faithful God. Blessed are those who wait for his help.
Isaiah 30:15—18 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
The Lord longs to be gracious to us. We see it in today’s passage. By His own choice, God created us, knowing that we would be obstinate, fickle and slow in responding to His love. He knew and yet He put himself in a place of waiting for us to come to Him so He can show us His great love and compassion. Why does He do this? Why does He wait for us to respond to Him? Because He is faithful to us. His love is not like ours. His love is eternal, unfathomable, unconditional and unfailing. So, He waits. And what is so ironic, is that He waits for us to wait on Him. When we have tried everything else, when we have panicked, obsessed, returned from running away, quit our procrastination or stopped trying to do everything by ourselves, He bids us to come to Him and wait for Him to love and help us. And when we finally wait, He blesses us and meets our deepest needs. Today, quit hurrying and scurrying and come to Him. He is waiting for you to wait on Him.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear God, I admit that I worry and run around trying to fix things by myself. Forgive me for not trusting You. Today I come and pour my worries at Your feet. Guide me, help me, bless me I pray as I wait on You for all my needs.
AMEN
