God’s Love

TODAY’S VERSE
“Show me your unfailing love in wonderful ways.”
Psalms 17:7 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
God loves us in so many wonderful ways. Have you ever stopped to think of all the many ways God loves you? What of His forgiveness, His grace and mercy? Have you pondered His provision, protection and promises? Have you stopped to thank Him for all that you have, all that you have done and all that you are? What of our hope, faith and love He freely gives us? There’s the fruit of the Spirit, the whole armor of God and spiritual gifts. Not to mention Christ’s death and resurrection. And what of the very life He gives us? Every breath we breathe, all the physical blessings that we take for granted. Finally, there is family, friends and wonderful fellowship with those we love. Today, take time to thank God for all the wonderful ways He loves you.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, forgive me for taking Your love for granted. How blinded, how self centered I have been. Today, help me to see all the many wonderful ways You love me.
AMEN

Praising God

TODAY’S VERSE
“The shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things they had heard and seen, which were just as they had been told.”
Luke 2:20 (NIV)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
Does our worship produce more worship? The shepherds came to the manger and worshiped Jesus born as a baby. And then they returned home filled with even more worship and praise. Jesus was the Messiah, the hope of the world, and they were deeply moved by their time with Him. Today, we come week after week worshipping the same Jesus. They knew Him as a baby but we know Him as the Savior. We know the joy of sins forgiven. We know the power of a personal relationship with Jesus. Yet how do we return home week after week after spending time in corporate worship? How does our experience on Sunday extend into how we live and worship on Monday? What kind of Christian experience do we really have, or is our faith just a ritual, a religious practice? The shepherds experienced Jesus, and even as a baby, it changed their lives. They were never the same. Let Jesus do the same for you. Might your whole life be filled with the joy and wonder of His love for you. Today, glorify and praise God for all He has done.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear Jesus, thank You for all You have done for me. Thank You for Your birth, death and resurrection. Today, fill my heart with praise. Give me a joy deep in my heart. Help me to know You in a profoundly personal way so I, too, return home glorifying and praising You for all the things I have seen and heard.
AMEN

Our Chief Purpose

TODAY’S VERSE
“Honor the LORD for his glory and strength. Honor the LORD for the glory of his name. Worship the LORD in the splendor of his holiness.”
Psalms 29:1-2

TODAY’S THOUGHT
What do you think is the most significant purpose God has for us on this earth? You could certainly build a case for loving others. The Apostle John told us that God is love, so loving others is most certainly on God’s agenda. Evangelism must be a priority. Jesus left us with the great commission to go and make disciples of all nations. Personal worship is another purpose God has created us for. God longs for our adoration. He is worthy of all our praise and worship. What a privilege it is to bow down before the Almighty creator of the Universe and know that He cares deeply for our worship. David said to “Honor the Lord” and “To worship Him in the splendor of His holiness.” It is nearly impossible to fathom what it is like to be before God in all His splendor and majesty, but that is what we are invited to do. Take the mountain tops, the streams, sunsets, ocean views, canyons and any other majestic visuals images that you have been privileged to see and let it equal one drop of water. Now put that drop in the ocean and you will begin to see how our paltry earthly images compare to His splendor. So today, no matter where you are, stop and participate in one of the most sacred and special purposes of our human experience. Right this moment, praise Him for who He is. Thank Him for all He has done. Worship Him in all His glory. He has invited you to come and adore Him. Don’t take His invitation for granted. It is a rare gift from God Himself. Worship Him with all your heart, soul and mind.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, I come right now to worship You. Thank You for Your love for me. I bow before You this moment and adore You for all Your goodness. You are the true and living Almighty God and I praise You for all You have done for me. Thank You for making me Your Child through the death of Your Son, Jesus, on the cross for me. I love and worship You in Jesus Name.
AMEN

Object Of His Love

TODAY’S VERSE
“Look, the highest heavens and the earth and everything in it all belong to the LORD your God. Yet the LORD chose your ancestors as the objects of his love. And he chose you – Therefore, change your hearts and stop being stubborn. For the LORD your God is the God of gods and Lord of lords. He is the great God, the mighty and awesome God.”
Deuteronomy 10:14-17 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
Some times we just need to be reminded. We get so busy, so crazy, so wrapped up in our own world we forget; we forget about God. And then in His mercy, He lets us come across a passage like the one today and it calls us back to what is real, back to Him and His love for us. The author reminds us that even though God made all of the universe and everything in it, He choose you and I to be the object of His love. The God of gods, Lord of lords, the Great God, mighty and awesome, chose you and I to be the object of His love. No wonder the author asks us to get serious, change our stubborn hearts and take God’s love seriously. Today, do as the author suggests, “Change your heart and stop being stubborn.” Turn to God, acknowledge Him as Lord of your life and thank Him for all His love, grace and mercy toward you. 

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear Lord God Almighty. I thank You for choosing me to be an object of Your love. Forgive me for taking that for granted. I come to You now and surrender my life to You, for You are the mighty and awesome God, worthy of all my praise and devotion.
AMEN

Holy, Holy, Holy

TODAY’S VERSE
“Day after day and night after night they keep on saying, ‘Holy, holy, Holy is the Lord God, the Almighty—the one who always was, who is, and who is still to come.’ – And they lay their crowns before the throne and say, ‘You are worthy, O Lord our God, to receive glory and honor and power.”’
Revelation 4:8-11 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
I remember as a young child reading the fourth chapter of Revelations. I didn’t quite understand about the living beings and the twenty-four elders but I do remember the phrase, “Holy, Holy, Holy is the Lord God Almighty!” It did for me then, what it still does today. It lifted me to the heights of heaven and dropped me to my knees at the same time. I remember thinking, “Who am I, Lord, that I would be allowed to worship You in this way?” I was humbled by my own unworthiness and yet mesmerized by the opportunity to join the multitude of heavenly hosts in praising God. It was as if I couldn’t help myself, something deep inside wanted to shout out, “Holy, Holy, Holy are You, God Almighty.” It was as if for that moment I was all that I was supposed to be. I still feel that way. I could be doing anything and when a song with the phrase, “Holy, Holy, Holy” comes on, I have to stop and give my gratitude, allegiance and worship to God. How about you? Today, give God your worship. Take your place with the hosts of heavens and cry out, “Holy, Holy, Holy is the Lord God, the Almighty—the one who always was, who is, and who is still to come. You are worthy, O Lord our God, to receive glory and honor and power.”

TODAY’S PRAYER
Oh Mighty God, I come and bow before You. I worship You for You are Holy, Holy, Holy. Truly You deserve all my praise. I love You, Lord.
AMEN

Strength And Song

TODAY’S VERSE
“The LORD is my strength and my song; He has given me victory. Songs of joy and victory are sung in the camp of the godly. The strong right arm of the LORD has done glorious things!”
Psalms 118:14-15 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
I love the two words, “strength” and “song” together. They go hand in hand; His strength, our song. Here is the Psalmist. He had seen God’s strength move on his behalf resulting in a great victory and his heart bursts out in singing. That’s because sometimes words alone are not enough. Our soul must express itself in melody. And yet, how many times do we fail to respond to God’s strength on our behalf? Remember the ten lepers that Jesus healed? Only one came back to even give thanks. Can you imagine? Forget a victory in battle. Their body, full of putrefying skin, had just been miraculously healed, and nine out of ten did not even say, “Thanks.”  And sadly, Jesus noticed. He asked the one who returned, “Where are the other nine?” Unfortunately, He’s still asking today. Where are we? Where are our praising hearts? Where are the songs of our souls that lift to the heavens in adoration for all that He has done for us? We have no excuse. We have been healed. Today let’s lift our voices in praise for all His strength on our behalf.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, my heart sings in praise and adoration for all You have done for me. You are the Almighty and all loving God who has saved my soul. I thank You and praise Your Holy name.
AMEN

Sit Before The Lord

TODAY’S VERSE
“Then went King David in, and sat before the LORD.”
II Samuel 7:18 (KJV)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
I love this verse. The Bible makes it clear that King David was a “man after God’s own heart.” David knew the heart of God and wrote many of the beautiful Psalms that we have come to love. In today’s passage we see David was moved deeply by God and had to talk to Him. What I love is that David went into the Tabernacle and sat before the Lord. This is the same Tabernacle where the sons of Aaron died because they did not follow protocol. Now some teach that sitting was a sign of worship in the ancient days. But it sure wasn’t what the Priests did. They could only come into the presence of the Lord and do exactly what was set down in the law. No more, no less. And here was David, like a child before his Father, sitting, no doubt in reverence but also in love. Love for His heavenly Father. And because of Jesus and His sacrifice for us, we have become His children and get to come sit in the presence of the Lord any time we desire. He bids us to come to Him, worship Him, share with Him, pray to Him. God created us so we could have a deep and loving relationship with Him. Today, come to God. Sit before Him, enjoy His presence. Share with Him your burdens, your concerns. Express to Him your joy and your love. What a glorious privilege is ours, to sit before God Almighty.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear Heavenly Father, I sit before You in deep wonder and worship. Who am I that You would allow me to know Your presence and yet You do. Your love for me is immeasurable. I sit in worship and adoration. I sit in humility and praise Your Holy name. You are my God and I sit humbly before You.
AMEN

Praise God

TODAY’S VERSE
“Oh, how great are God’s riches and wisdom and knowledge! How impossible it is for us to understand his decisions and his ways! For who can know the LORD’s thoughts? Who knows enough to give him advice? And who has given him so much that he needs to pay it back? For everything comes from him and exists by his power and is intended for his glory. All glory to him forever! Amen.”
Romans 11:33-36 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
Sometimes you just have to STOP and praise God! It is so easy to take Him for granted. We get use to having His presence in our life we act like the person living in the mountains that never stops to see its majesty. Or the person who drives along the ocean shore rushing to work and never stops to consider its beauty. Sometimes life crowds us in and we get so stressed out that we forget who God is and how privileged we are to be His children. Paul took time to remember. We need to as well. Paul wrote, “Oh, how great are God’s riches and wisdom and knowledge!” How great indeed. Today, stop and realize the wonder of God. Thank Him for His wisdom, love, power and majesty. Let us say with Paul, “All glory to Him forever!”

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, thank You for all You are and have done. Thank You for Your wisdom, power, love and majesty. Praise You for Your forgiveness and salvation. May all glory go to You forever!
AMEN

Give Praise

TODAY’S VERSE
“But you are a forgiving God, gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and abounding in love. Therefore you did not desert them.”
Nehemiah 9:17 (NIV)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
The story of Nehemiah in the Old Testament is about the redemption of God’s people. The people were scattered. They had disobeyed God and he allowed calamity to come upon them. But in God’s timing, He called Nehemiah to rebuilt the wall of Jerusalem so the people could come back together as a nation. When they were done rebuilding the walls they had a great celebration. Nehemiah writes, “Standing on the stairs were the Levites—who called with loud voices to the LORD their God and said: “Stand up and praise the LORD your God, who is from everlasting to everlasting. – Our God, the great, mighty and awesome God, who keeps his covenant of love.” They celebrated God who is forgiving, gracious and compassionate. What do you celebrate about God? What is it about God that brings a smile to your face and a joy in your heart? If you can’t think of anything then think on this. God has never given up on you, He will never desert you, He is always slow to anger and will always keep His covenant of love with you. Today, take pause and give praise. 

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, thank You for Your gracious love toward me. Thank You for Your forgiveness and compassion. Thank You that You will never desert me but will keep your promise to always love me.
AMEN

Stand In Awe Of God

TODAY’S VERSE
“Let everyone stand in awe of him.”
Psalms 33:8 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
Have you ever been blown away by something? Watching Michael Jordon doing a dunk, the sunset in Hawaii, Isaac Stern playing Beethoven’s Sonata in C Minor on his violin, the Rocky Mountains; these are just a few things that can inspire. But the Psalmist writes of something much greater than any mountain majesty. He writes of the majesty that created the mountain. He shares, “The LORD merely spoke, and the heavens were created. He breathed the word, and all the stars were born. He assigned the sea its boundaries and locked the oceans in vast reservoirs.” His conclusion was, “Let the whole world fear the LORD.” What about you? When is the last time you stopped and stood in awe of God? When have you let your mind go and just bask in His greatness, His power and His infiniteness? No one can do it for you. The good news is, it’s easier than you think. Just stop. Close your eyes and whisper, “How mighty You are, dear God.” Let it sink in and add, “I stand in awe of You, almighty Lord.” Then wait. Muse on Him. Pause and let the majesty of God flood your soul. Meditate; He is awesome, He is mighty, He loves you. Today, stand in awe of Him.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear Father, I stand in awe of You. You are mighty! You are glorious. You are worthy of all my praise. To You be the glory, I stand in awe of You.
AMEN
