Believe

 TODAY’S VERSE
“For they did not believe God or trust him to care for them.”
Psalms 78:22 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
There is a fine line between trust and faith. The Children of Israel were in the wilderness, a hard and barren land. It was a difficult and cruel existence. Even though God had promised to take care of them, they did not believe it. It was hard for them to trust God to provide for them. It is hard to trust with your mind when your feet are in a precarious place. That is when trust needs to turn into faith. They would need faith that He would take care of them. This is where the Israelites failed. Like us, instead of faith, they chose murmuring and complaining. They looked around and saw nothing but rocks and a hot and barren land. They did not see God. Today, might we open our eyes to the reality of God in our own situation. Might we trust God for a pillar of cloud by day and fire by night. Might we taste the Manna and drink of the water from the rock. Today, let us rejoice, for He is Jehovah-jireh, the Lord our provider.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, forgive me for my complaining. Forgive me when I forget that You love me and are my provider. I lay my needs at Your feet and give You all my trust and faith.
AMEN

A Deeper Faith

TODAY’S VERSE
“For they did not believe God or trust him to care for them.”
Psalms 78:22 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
I must admit that I am guilty. I do not always believe God or trust Him to care for me. I am not being glib, I am not proud of it. And even though I deeply believe in the grace of God, I shutter when I think of God’s anger toward the Israelites for their unbelief. My unbelief goes against God’s Holy plan for mankind. My fear, because I doubt whether or not God wants to or even can care for me, flies in the face of everything God wants to do in my life. I get up some mornings and the best I can mustard is, “Lord, I believe, help my unbelief.” But the amazing fact is, He hears my prayer. He knows my fears, He knows my doubts and as I commune with Him, His Holy Spirit prays on my behalf and starts to churn hope, and faith and perseverance deep into my heart. And I press on. I cry, “I believe Lord, help my unbelief” and God begins to reveal Himself and I start to believe all over again. His faithfulness is greater than my forgetfulness. His nurturing, caring, loving grace is greater than all my sin, even my unbelief. This I truly believe. Today, repent, believe and trust Him. He does care for you.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, I am so glad I can come to You in my human frailty. I ask forgiveness for my unbelief. I need You and trust You to speak to me, comfort me and guide me into a deeper faith.
AMEN

A Friend Of God

TODAY’S VERSE
“You were once far away from God. You were his enemies, separated from him by your evil thoughts and actions. Yet now he has brought  you back as His friends. He has done this through his death on the cross in his own human body. As a result, he has brought you into the very presence of God, and you are holy and blameless as you stand before him without a single fault.”
Colossians 1:21-22 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
What you believe about yourself is key to the way you live. What you believe God thinks about you can make all the difference in the world. That is why Paul wrote his letter to the Colossian church. He wanted them to know who they were. He starts out reminding them that they were the very enemies of God, separated by their evil thoughts and actions. But just as quick, he shares that God, through the death of Christ on the cross, has now accepted them as friends. This gives them the right to come into His very presence as a holy and blameless individual. In their book “TrueFaced” the authors say it this way, “As a maturing Christian, I no longer define myself by my sin or the sin committed against me, but by who God declared me to be.” And what has God declared about you? He has declared, because of Christ and your personal faith in Him, that you are His friend. Today, let this reality sink deep into your heart. Let it fill you with joy and peace as you live for Him.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, thank You for declaring me as Your friend. Thank You that through the death and resurrection of Christ, Your son, I am Your child, completely loved and forgiven of all my sins. Help me to live in this reality.
AMEN
