Lord, I Am Coming

TODAY’S VERSE
“My heart has heard you say, ‘Come and talk with me.’ And my heart responds, ‘LORD, I am coming.”’
Psalms 27:8 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
There are a lot of voices calling out for the attention of our heart. Depending how deep you are thinking, you can have a new thought every two to ten seconds. That’s anywhere from ten thousand to fifty thousand thoughts a day. How many of these are cries of the heart? How many come from emotional pain? How many are the result of unsolved spiritual issues? How we ruminate over and over again, struggling to find peace and joy. And yet if we listen, if we stop, quiet ourselves, we will hear it. We will hear the voice of God crying out to us. David heard it. He wrote, “My heart has heard you say, ‘Come and talk with me.’” How God wants your heart. How He desires to fellowship with you. And yet we resist. We have so many important things to tend to. Yet God is calling, “Come and talk with me.” David’s heart heard the voice of God and David said, “Lord, I am coming.” What does your heart say? Today, come to God. Come and talk with Him. Come and listen. Come and fellowship. God is calling you.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear Father, I come and quiet myself before You. I need You so badly and yet I don’t know where to start. Teach me. Show me how to know You. Help me talk to You. Lord, hear the silent cries of my heart. Hear my inner thoughts. I come to You now, in Jesus’ name.
AMEN

What Do You Remember?

TODAY’S VERSE
“But they soon forgot what he had done and did not wait for his counsel.”
Psalms 106:13

“I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you.”
Psalms 119:11

TODAY’S THOUGHT
When the chips are down, what do you remember? When fear enters your mind, what do you think of? When you are angry and tempted to do something rash, what thoughts enter your mind? It is hard to stop automatic thoughts that pop into our head, but what you think after that, is your responsibility. In today’s verse we see that the people of God chose to forget what God had done in the past. The lessons of faith that they should have learned were never cultivated. This wasn’t a memory lapse. It was more like apathy. It was living as if God didn’t exist. The cure for this spiritual apathy is to take deliberate steps in order to prevent a lapse of memory. The Psalmist shares how. He shares that the reason he did not sin against God was because he hid God’s word deep in his heart. The “word” of God not only contained the law, it also contained stories, stories that revealed God’s character and His great love for us. It is your remembrance of His promises, the recalling the many miracles you have witnessed, the active reading the scriptures and spending time with God seeking His counsel that will keep you from falling. These spiritual disciplines will protect you when facing temptation. They will be your guide when you have hard decisions to make. May God help you in your stressful times. May the remembrance of all He has done for you, give you the confidence you need to follow Him. 

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, help me to remember all You have done for me. Help me read Your word and plant it deep into my heart so it will guide me as I go through my day. I pray this in Jesus’ name.
AMEN

Live For Him

TODAY’S VERSE
 “You are a chosen people. You are royal priests, a holy nation, God’s very own possession. As a result, you can show others the goodness of God — Be careful to live properly among your unbelieving neighbors. Then even if they accuse you of doing wrong, they will see your honorable behavior, and they will give honor to God — It is God’s will that your honorable lives should silence those ignorant people who make foolish accusations against you.”
I Peter 2: 9, 12, 15 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
God cares about the way we live. Why? Because it the evidence that others see about God. Many people will never read the Bible but they will read our lives. They may not hear about the Gospel According to Matthew, Mark, Luke or John, but they will know the Gospel According to you! You see, according to Peter, you are part of a chosen people. You are a Royal Priest of Almighty God. You are part of a Holy Nation. Because of this you have the privilege, the responsibility, to represent your King. You are to show others the goodness of God by the way you live. It is your life that silences the skeptics that would bring dishonor to God. Does this mean we make a mask and fake our good behavior? No, people are not looking for pretence or phoniness. They want to see an honest, real and authentic life. A life where you admit when you are wrong. Where you fall but get up and try again. Where your faith is weak but you surrender to the love of God anyways. God chose you. Now it is your turn. Choose to live for Him.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, thank You for choosing me. Thank You for making me a Royal Priest, a chosen person, part of a Holy nation. Help me to live accordingly. I cannot do it by myself. I need Your help to live the kind of life that would honor You. Help me to that end I pray. In Jesus’ name.
AMEN
