Praise Him Today

TODAY’S VERSE
“I will exalt you, my God and King, and praise your name forever and ever. I will praise you every day; yes, I will praise you forever. Great is the LORD! He is most worthy of praise! No one can measure his greatness.”
Psalms 145:1-5

TODAY’S THOUGHT
Have you ever praised the Lord? No, I mean really praised the Lord? It could have been a quiet, sweet praise that brought tears to your eyes. Perhaps it was a shout-out-loud, hand clapping, exuberance. If you haven’t been praising the Lord lately, today would be a great time to start. David said that he praised God everyday. Why? Because David knew that God was worthy of his praise! We too can praise God. Just start to think of all the goodness in your life. Think of all that you have. Think of those most precious to you. Think of the fact that today you are alive and as long as you are alive, God has a purpose for you. If that is not enough, think of the fact that God loves you unconditionally. He has forgiven you of all the wrong you have ever done through the sacrificial death of His son. Finally, think of how almighty God is. Think of how awesome He is. His wisdom, majesty, power and greatness are without limit. So what is stopping you? Right now, stop and praise the Lord. Tell Him how much you love Him. Tell Him how great and majestic He is and how thankful you are to have a relationship with Him. He is worthy of our praise.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Almighty, glorious, everlasting, majestic God. I come now to bow before you. I come to praise your Holy name. I come to lift up my voice from the depth of my soul and say, “Halleluiah”. I thank you for who you are and for what you have done in my life. I thank and praise you for all that I have and for all that I am. I thank you for your love for me, for your death on the cross for me, and for the gift of your Holy Spirit. I praise you God for your greatness. I praise you God and affirm how great you are. Truly you are worthy of all my praise.
AMEN

The Promiseland Is Waiting

TODAY’S VERSES
The LORD said to Moses, “Send some men to explore the land of Canaan, which I am giving to the Israelites. From each ancestral tribe send one of its leaders.”
Numbers 13:1-2

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

That night all the people of the community raised their voices and wept aloud. All the Israelites grumbled against Moses and Aaron, and the whole assembly said to them, “If only we had died in Egypt! Or in this desert! Why is the LORD bringing us to this land only to let us fall by the sword? Our wives and children will be taken as plunder. Wouldn’t it be better for us to go back to Egypt?” And they said to each other, “We should choose a leader and go back to Egypt.”
Numbers 14:1-4

TODAY’S THOUGHT
Attitudes can change everything. You know the story. Moses sent spies into the promise 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, that God did not really love them and they were better off taking care of themselves.
What do you think? 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 spend time with God. Don’t quit, 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 promiseland is waiting.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Oh Father, you know my heart. You know my doubts, fears, 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

I Can Only Imagine

TODAY’S VERSE
“No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love him.”
I Corinthians 2:9

TODAY’S MESSAGE
Most of time our family has moved, my wife and I have worked together on finding a house. However when we moved to Georgia I was out there for two months before her. My son came with and we looked for homes. He found one on the MLS listing and went to meet the people. He called me at work and said that he found the house for us. He was right. It was love at first sight. It was rustic, in the woods had a lot of potential. Of course that meant it needed a lot of work. Somehow though, I could see the finished home in my minds eye. I was really excited and send my wife a rendering of what I proposed. I promised her that I would get the house fixed up. I kept my word. I put in trails, two ponds, bonus apartment, bird sanctuary, plumbing, electric work, deck and new floors. I painted, cleaned and put in gardens. I have never enjoyed a project more that that one. I really wanted my wife to love it like I did. Well, she fell in love with the house too. Now imagine what Jesus feels like. He said that He went to prepare a place for us. And what a place it must be! Paul says that “No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love him.” As the popular Christian song says, “I can only imagine!”

TODAY’S PRAYER
Jesus, I thank you that you have gone on ahead to prepare a place in eternity for me. I cannot imagine what you must have in store. I only know that you love me and no one can even begin to conceive how great it will be to spend eternity with you. Let me live today with eternity in mind. Thank you Lord Jesus.
AMEN

The One Thing

TODAY’S VERSE
“One thing I ask of the LORD, this is what I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to gaze upon the beauty of the LORD and to seek him in his temple.”
Psalms 27:4

TODAY’S MESSAGE
Have you ever went somewhere and hated to leave? Have you ever enjoyed something so much that you did not want it to stop? Is there anything in your life that has become that “one thing”? This is what David felt about his relationship with God. If we had to choose a word to describe David it would be “worshipper”. David really loved God. He was sold out to Jehovah. So much so that if he had to choose just “one thing” it would be to worship God all the time. What about you? What role does the worship of God play in your life? Is it just an hour of church on Sunday? That wasn’t enough for David. If he could, he would have stayed in the Temple of God worshipping all the time! The good news is that we don’t have to go to a Temple to worship God. We are the temple. Our body is His temple and our heart is an alter for worship. We can stop anytime, anywhere and gaze upon His beauty in the quietness of our own soul. Bring your praise and adoration to Him in your own temple throughout the day and night. Let loving God and living for Him become your “one thing.”

TODAY’S PRAYER
Lord, I admit I have been preoccupied with so many things that worshipping you has taken a back seat in my life. I am so sorry. I do love you. I really do want to get my priorities right. Help me know and love you more and more until worshipping you becomes the “one thing” in my life.
AMEN

His Unconditional Love

TODAY’S VERSE
“Look at my Servant, whom I have chosen. He is my Beloved, who pleases me. I will put my Spirit upon him, and he will proclaim justice to the nations. He will not fight or shout or raise his voice in public.
He will not crush the weakest reed or put out a flickering candle.
Finally he will cause justice to be victorious. And his name will be the hope of all the world.”
Matthew 12:18-21

TODAY’S MESSAGE
You can tell a religion by the God it follows. We follow Jehovah who made Himself a man in the person of Christ Jesus. He could have chosen to come as a ruler, a dictator, a mighty military leader or a tyrant. Instead, He came to earth in the person of Jesus. Isaiah says that Jesus came to proclaim justice. He came to be our hope. He did not come to crush the weakest reed or put out a flickering flame. What a picture Isaiah is painting. Here we are; many times messy, needy and weak. We get beat up, confused, tempted and tired. What does Jesus do? Does He step all over us? Does He crush the reeds? No, not even a faint brush to disturb them. Does He rant and rave? Does He blow out the littlest bit of a flame that we have left? No, He does nothing that would cause the flame to go out. His name is Hope! Hope today in His unconditional love for you.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear Father, what a picture of your love for me! I need your love. I need your understanding, your mercy and your total forgiveness. I fully receive them right now. I praise you for your kindness, I shout with joy even now for your unconditional love for me. Thank you Jesus. My hope is in you!
AMEN

More Than A Father

TODAY’S VERSE
“And because we are his children, God has sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, prompting us to call out, ‘Abba, Father.’”
Galatians 4:6

TODAY’S MESSAGE
What a tender thought. Paul was very deliberate in using “Abba Father”. This is a more affectionate term that simply saying, “Father.” The real translation of Abba Father is “Daddy!” Imagine, God invites us to call Him our affectionate Father, “Daddy”. Can you say that? Have you thought of Him that way? Paul says that as God’s children, He has given us His Spirit and the job of the Spirit is to help us fall more and more in love with the Father until we can call Him “Daddy.” Will you let Him do that? Will you begin to meditate, to really stop and consider that He is your loving Father? Imagine His deep love for you. Imagine you coming into His presence, calling Him “Daddy”. Ask God to help you know this reality deep in your heart. After all, God has sent the Spirit of His Son into our hearts, prompting us to call out, “Abba, Father.”

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear Father, I want to call you “Daddy”. I hear it in my head, but it isn’t quite in my heart. I invite you Holy Spirit to speak to my heart, to help me feel the Father’s love, to know the Father’s love. Prompt me Holy Spirit to call God, “Dear Father, Dear Daddy”.
AMEN

STOP and PRAISE HIM

TODAY’S VERSE
“Let all that I am praise the LORD; with my whole heart, I will praise his holy name. Let all that I am praise the LORD; may I never forget the good things he does for me.
He forgives all my sins and heals all my diseases. He redeems me from death and crowns me with love and tender mercies. He fills my life with good things. My youth is renewed like the eagle’s!”
Psalms 103:1-5

TODAY’S MESSAGE
Charles Spurgeon wrote; “I don’t which is more incredible, God’s faithfulness or man’s forgetfulness!” It is so easy to forget all that God has done for us. We get so preoccupied. Our lives get so crazy that we can go whole days, weeks, perhaps months without thanking God for His presence and provision. But today is a new day! Today we can say with David, “Let all that I am PRAISE THE LORD!” Today we can thank Him with our whole heart. Right now we can lift our eyes to heaven and shout, “Thank You God for all your blessings!” He forgives our sins. He crowns us with love and tender mercies! He fills our lives with good things. Stop and spend a moment thanking Him for all He is and has done for you.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear God, I praise you today with my whole heart. Everything that is in me says, “Praise You God!” I thank you for your tender mercy. I thank you for your love and provision. I thank you for forgiving all my sins. Forgive me for forgetting so easily. Truly Father, you are worthy of all my praise. I worship you now with praise and thanksgiving, In Jesus name.
AMEN
