God Is in The Waiting

TODAY’S VERSE
I wait quietly before God, for my victory comes from him. He alone is my rock and my salvation, my fortress where I will never be shaken. – O my people, trust in him at all times. Pour out your heart to him, for God is our refuge.
Psalms 62:1-2,8 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
How do you wait? I have to admit that I do not always wait with patience. I do not always wait with faith. Often, when I have to wait, anger, worry, and fear are my companions. Not far behind are murmuring and complaining, waiting to have their say. Why is that? Why is waiting so hard? It is because I forget that it is God I am waiting on. Worse, I behave as if He doesn’t exist. David was different. He said that he waited quietly before God. Why? Because, if David was going to be victorious, he knew it would be because of God. God was his rock, salvation, fortress, and refuge. David knew the peace that came from trusting God, and he implores us to do the same. He says, “Trust in God at all times. Pour out our heart to Him.” What a difference this will make. As we pour out our concerns, worries, fears, doubts, all that is on our heart to God, He will reassure us. He will guide us. He will give us the peace we need. Today when the pressure is on, when you are under the gun, and you have to wait, try waiting quietly on God. He will be your rock. He will give you the victory.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, forgive me for my impatience. Forgive me for leaving You out of my life. Help me to remember that You love me and care about the details of my life. Today help me, as I wait patiently on You.
AMEN

Come Boldly To God

TODAY’S VERSE
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 10:21-22

TODAY’S THOUGHT
In the Old Testament, it was the High Priest that offered sacrifices to God for the forgiveness of the sins of Israel. Each year the High Priest would go through the ceremony waiting upon God to see if indeed the sacrifice would be accepted. Then Jesus came. God sent His own Son, Jesus, to be the new Great High Priest. It was His blood, shed on the cross, that paid for our sins once and for all. No more annual ritual. It was finished when Christ died and rose again from the dead. Jesus opened the door for us to have a deep and personal relationship with God. In today’s passage, it says, “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.” Have you ever stopped to consider what this really means? It means that you have a personal invitation from God to come right into His presence anytime that you want. Today, don’t just read His word. Don’t just pray. Today, come boldly to God’s throne and enjoy His presence. He has forgiven your sins and is waiting for you to come and know Him, fellowship with Him, worship Him and live for Him.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, thank You for the sacrifice of Your only son, Jesus, making it possible to forgive all my sins. Thank You that I now can come right into your presence. Help me, Lord, to know You better. Help me today to fully understand Your love for me. I pray this in Jesus’ name.
AMEN

The Grace, Love, and Fellowship of God

TODAY’S VERSE
May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all.
II Corinthians 13:14 (NIV)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
The grace of Jesus Christ, the love of God the Father and the fellowship with our Holy God’s Spirit. Does it get any better than this? The three keys to life, all found in our Christian experience. The grace of Jesus Christ. Grace, the ability of Christ to see us as we really are and because of His death on the cross, be able to extend unmerited favor upon us, forgiving us, cleansing us and making us whole. The love of God the Father. Love from the one who is love. Perfect love. Unconditional love. Unfathomable love. Unending love. The fellowship of the Holy Spirit. The comforter has come and He brings a fellowship sweeter than life itself. A deep relationship, teaching us of truth, judgment, and righteousness. A fellowship that results in love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. He guides us, protects us, comforts us, teaches us and leads us. Today you can avail yourself of all of this. This is the normal Christian experience that God desires you to have. Today, ask Him to make you keenly aware of the grace of Christ, the love of God the Father and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit. Ask God to make it real, deep in your heart.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, help me see and really understand, deep in my heart, what it means to be filled with the grace of Jesus, the love of the Father, and the fellowship with the Holy Spirit. I desire to know this in all its fullness. In Jesus’ Name.
AMEN

The Desires Of Your Heart

TODAY’S VERSE
Delight yourself in the LORD and he will give you the desires of your heart.
Psalms 37:4 (NIV)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
What do you desire? In his book “Desire,” John Eldredge shares how we often confuse our “heart’s desires” with pleasures. His concern is that we have replaced the deep-seated needs of our soul with short term pleasures. Pleasure has become a false God, an idol. He writes, “Wal-Mart is open twenty-four hours a day now, with a dozen restaurants nearby. Next door, a multiplex theater with thirty-seven screens. Or stay home – we have more than a hundred channels on the TV. Then there are computer games and the internet. We’ve discovered gourmet coffee, gourmet jelly beans and popcorn. We’ve nearly perfected our little pleasures. But they are all imposters—everyone. We are so taken by the dizzying array of choices, we never have to stop and take a good look at what we are doing.” He then brings up an interesting point. “Pleasure isn’t nearly so much about satisfying our desires as it is about anesthetizing ourselves. Think about the relief your pleasures provide: Is your desire truly and deeply satisfied, or does the relief come more through the temporary absence of desire?” You see, God knows the desires of your heart. He knows what you are lacking and He has promised that if you delight yourself in Him and His ways, He will give you what you need. No worldly pleasure can do that. Today delight yourself in God.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, only You can satisfy the desires I have deep in my heart. Only You know me intimately and have a plan for my life. Forgive me for having my idols of pleasure. I renounce them and will delight myself in you. Thank You that You will give me the desires of my heart.
AMEN

Worship Him

TODAY’S VERSE
Happy are those who hear the joyful call to worship, for they will walk in the light of your presence, LORD.
Psalms 89:15 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
We were created to worship God. It is our highest calling, our number one occupation. Everything else emanates from there. Want to be a better parent? Worship God. Want to love your spouse with your whole heart? Worship God. Want to be truly happy? Worship God. When we truly worship God in Spirit and truth, everything else falls in line. There is something about coming before an Almighty God, having our sins forgiven–knowing full well that we don’t deserve His love but that He loves us unconditionally, that humbles us, makes us appreciate life and all that He gives us. Worshipping Him, because He is and that He is all-loving, kind, powerful, majestic and Holy, lifts us out of ourselves and all our preoccupation with this life. It renews our spirit, resets our vision and encourages our heart. Today, spend time before God in worship. Stop your busyness for a moment, humble yourself before Him and worship Him, love Him and adore Him. When you do, you will sense your true self and the relationship with God that your heart is searching for.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear Father, I come to You today in Spirit and in truth to worship You. I join the myriads of angels at Your throne and cry out “Holy, Holy, Holy Lord God Almighty. You, who died for me, are worthy to receive power and wealth and wisdom and strength and honor and glory and praise! I worship You. In the matchless name of Jesus.
AMEN

My Heart His Home

TODAY’S VERSE
How lovely is your dwelling place, O LORD Almighty! My soul yearns, even faints, for the courts of the LORD; my heart and my flesh cry out for the living God.
Psalm 84:1-2 (NIV)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
God never intended to confine Himself to a temple made by human hands. He had a better plan. He created man as a vessel for His very presence by placing a vacuum into the human heart that could only be filled with His presence. The Psalmist illustrates this when he writes, “My heart and flesh cry out for the living God.” Paul makes it crystal clear when he shares, “Don’t you realize that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, who lives in you and was given to you by God?” What a wondrous concept. So when we read, “How lovely is your dwelling place, O LORD Almighty! My soul yearns, even faints, for the courts of the LORD,” we can literally superimpose that image to our very body. His dwelling place, the very courts of the Lord, have found their new home, through the presence of the Holy Spirit, within our own body. Today you don’t have to go anywhere special to worship God. You don’t have to make a pilgrimage or look for lofty cathedrals. His presence abides in you. He who you come to worship is alive in your heart. Bow before Him, enter the gates of your heart with thanksgiving and worship Him.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, thank You for creating Your new temple within my own body. I bow before You as my Lord and Savior. My soul yearns, even faints to be conscious of Your presence. I worship You today in Spirit and truth. In Jesus’ Name.
AMEN

Merry Christmas

TODAY’S VERSE
“I bring you good news that will bring great joy to all people. The Savior—yes, the Messiah, the Lord—has been born today in Bethlehem, the city of David!
(NLT) Luke 2:10-11

TODAY’S THOUGHT
Christmas is a joyous occasion. Around the world today people are sharing love with each other, share gifts, food and fellowship. It is a treasured Holiday. But in all the excitement of the Holiday, let’s not forget that Christmas is when we celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ. The wonderful truth is that God came in the person of Jesus Christ so we could have a relationship with Him. Christ came to become the Savior of the world. Jesus Himself said, “For this is how God loved the world: He gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life.” Today, take a moment and thank God for this special day. Let us say with the angels on that Holy day, “Glory to God in highest heaven, and peace on earth to those with whom God is pleased.”

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, Thank You for this special day that we set aside to celebrate with friends and family. But most of all dear God, thank You for the birth of Your precious Son, our Savior, Jesus Christ.
AMEN
