Help Me

TODAY’S VERSE
Help, LORD.
Psalms 12:1

TODAY’S MESSAGE
Sometimes the most significant prayers are the simplest. “Help me!” It is the cry of the heart that God hears. David knew what problems were like. But he knew where to turn. In another Psalm, he wrote, “In my distress, I called to the LORD; I cried to my God for help. From his temple he heard my voice; my cry came before him, into his ears.” How about you. Will you cry out to God to help you? What is it that your soul needs? What is the longing of your heart? Talk to Him, pour out your heart. He will listen.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, thank You for the invitation to pour out my heart to You. I cry “help me.” Help me, where I don’t even know I need help. Help me, in ways that only You can. Help me, with Your power, Your love, and Your wisdom. I commit myself to Your loving care. In Jesus’ name.
AMEN

Help Me Believe

TODAY’S VERSE
Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.
Hebrews 11:1

TODAY’S MESSAGE
Faith is not easy. If it was, it wouldn’t be “faith”. However, the more we get to know the object of our faith, the more we can “become sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see”. How well do you know God? Do you spend time with Him? Do you trust Him? It’s not always what we “believe” that affects our lives; sometimes it is what we don’t believe. If you do not believe God loves you deeply, if you do not believe that He will do all He says He will, if you do not believe that He will never leave you or forsake you, then your prayer needs to be like the man who came to Jesus to see his boy healed, “I believe, Lord. Help me overcome my unbelief.”

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear Lord, I believe but I need You to help me overcome things that I am having a hard time believing. I want to know, love, trust and believe You more and more. In Jesus’ name.
AMEN

What Do You Believe About God?

TODAY’S VERSE
And without faith, it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.
Hebrews 11:6 (NIV)

TODAY’S MESSAGE
What we believe about God makes a difference. Is He an overbearing parent, never pleased with us? Is he our celestial Genie whose purpose is to give us our wishes on command? Is he a senile old man, unable to really comprehend what we are thinking or doing? Is He sadistic, getting pleasure from making our lives miserable? Perhaps a mad scientist that started this experiment but has lost control, not able to influence any desirable outcome? If we are really honest with ourselves, we will see a little bit of our own beliefs in these scenarios. The author of Hebrews says if we want to please God, then we must believe that He is the God of the Bible, not something that we made up. Not some misconceptions that we bring with us from childhood. He is the God who created the world and loves us with a never-ending love. He is the God that rewards those that earnestly seek Him. Start to seek Him today. Study the Bible, pray, meditate on His goodness. He is the God who desires to be known.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear God, I confess I do not really know You as I should. I haven’t spent the time it takes. I haven’t shared my real heart with You. I haven’t waited long enough to hear Your voice. Forgive me. Please reveal Yourself to me through Your word and in my prayers. Today I commit myself to know You more.
AMEN

New Thinking Habits

TODAY’S VERSE
And now, dear brothers and sisters, one final thing. Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise.
Philippians 4:8 (NLT)

TODAY’S MESSAGE
It is so easy to let our thoughts run away from us. You know, the inward chatter that goes on all day. The voice when you get up in the morning, the musing on the drive to work, the stewing over events on the way home. Inner thoughts are powerful. They create emotions, which in turn, cause actions. Paul is saying that we have to take ownership of our inner dialog. It is so easy to be negative, anxious, angry, doubtful, bitter or carnal in our thinking. Instead, we need to be responsible for what we think and deliberately focus on true, honorable, right, pure, lovely, admirable, excellent and praiseworthy thoughts. What a difference this discipline would bring to our life.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, You know my thought process. You know my habitual thinking patterns. I bring them to You. I ask that You help me today begin a habit of focusing on true, honorable, right, pure, lovely, admirable, excellent and praiseworthy thoughts. In Jesus’ name.
AMEN

The Promised Land Is Waiting

TODAY’S VERSE
Then Caleb silenced the people before Moses and said, “We should go up and take possession of the land, for we can certainly do it.” But the men who had gone up with him said, “We can’t attack those people; they are stronger than we are.” And they spread among the Israelites a bad report about the land they had explored.
Numbers 13:30-32 (NIV)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
Attitudes can change everything. You know the story. Moses sent spies into the promised land to see what it was like. All twelve men saw the same thing but came back with different conclusions. Two saw possibilities born out of faith and hope in God’s love and power. The others saw defeat, death, dying and doom. The people believed the second story. Why is that? Why can we believe the death, dying and doom story so much easier than the land of milk and honey? What is it that keeps us from believing in the goodness of God? We don’t doubt whether He can do good, we doubt whether He wants to. Dallas Willard in his book Hearing God shares why even the miracles of Jesus could not convince some people of His love and Lordship. Willard writes, “Our preexisting ideas and assumptions are precisely what determine what we can see, hear or otherwise observe.” You see Caleb’s report could not change what the people already believed in their heart. They did not believe that God loved them. Deep in their heart, they believed they were better off taking care of themselves. What do you believe? Seeing a miracle won’t change it. A good report won’t change that deep-down doubt. Only repentance and a relationship can. Repent of unbelief, doubt and fear and then time spent with God soaking in His love. Every day get to know Him until you sense His concern and His deep passion and love for you. Come to Him today, ask Him to show you His love. He will. The promised land is waiting.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Oh, Father, You know my heart. You know my doubts, fears, and negative thoughts. I have had them all my life. I repent, Lord. I want to believe. Help me correct my thinking. Help me know You more and more until my inner thoughts reflect the faith and love that You created me for. In Jesus’ name.
AMEN

Ask For Wisdom

Ask For Wisdom

TODAY’S VERSE
My child, listen to what I say and treasure my commands. Tune your ears to wisdom, and concentrate on understanding. Cry out for insight, and ask for understanding. Search for them as you would for silver; seek them like hidden treasures. Then you will understand what it means to fear the LORD, and you will gain knowledge of God. For the LORD grants wisdom! From his mouth come knowledge and understanding.
Proverbs 2:1-6 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
In I Kings the third chapter, God asks Solomon, David’s son and the new King of Israel, “What do you want?” Solomon gives an eloquent response and asks for wisdom. God was impressed and blessed Solomon beyond measure. I admire Solomon’s choice. He could have asked for riches, fame, land, skills, athletic ability, immortality, a myriad of choices were his to ask for, but he chose wisdom. He knew that with wisdom comes so much more. With wisdom comes knowledge and understanding. It is more precious than hidden treasure. The best news is that God will give it to us freely if we ask for it in faith. What do you need wisdom about today? Is it a relationship, job situation, financial worry, medical choice or family issue? God hears your request. Search for wisdom, cry out for insight, seek for it and God will grant your request. Like James said, “If you need wisdom, ask our generous God, and He will give it to you.”

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear almighty, all-wise God. I need Your wisdom today. I need You to speak to me, to show me Your way, to give me Your knowledge and understanding. I want it more than riches than fame than success. Thank You that You said if I need wisdom to ask You and You will give it to me. So, Father, I come now, bowing before You, asking for wisdom, knowledge, and understanding. Thank You for hearing my prayer. In Jesus’ name.
AMEN

Show Me The Way

TODAY’S VERSE
Trust in the LORD with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take.
Proverbs 3:5-6

TODAY’S THOUGHT
Is the Bible just an ordinary book to you? Just some old religious sayings? Perhaps a few good stories, but really nothing to take too seriously? If so, let me challenge you to reconsider your view. You see, there is a wisdom that only comes from God and it comes from reading and meditating on His word and committing yourself to what it says. This wisdom is the secret to life! Today, heed what Solomon is saying when he writes, “Trust in God and don’t lean on our own understanding.” Pay attention to what God’s word says, listen closely, let it penetrate deep into your being. If you do this God will bless you. Your reading and understanding will help you guard your heart and determine the course of your life. Start today, make a commitment to read and study the Bible.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, You know my life, my situation, and circumstances. You know my emotions and my thoughts. I need You. I need Your wisdom and understanding. Let Your words that I read sink down deep into my soul and guide me, protect me and give me direction. In Jesus’ name.
AMEN
