You Are His Masterpiece

TODAY’S VERSE
“For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.”
Ephesians 2:10

TODAY’S THOUGHT
For every truth there is a lie waiting to deceive us. Why is it so much easier to believe a lie? Why can doubt have so much impact on belief? A million people can believe the truth and yet one dissenter will get the nation’s attention. It is that way in the spiritual realm. Paul writes that we are significant. Specifically, “we are God’s masterpiece created to do the good things he planned for us to do” and what do we believe? Be honest, don’t we often believe we are no good, inferior, damaged goods and even hopeless? Where did that come from? It didn’t come from God! If we want to change what we believe, we must renounce the lies. Do it today. Lift up your heart and say it out loud, “I renounce the lie that I am no good, inferior, damaged goods or hopeless.” My friend, it is time to believe the truth about yourself. You are significant. You are a masterpiece made by God Himself. He absolutely loves you and desires you to accept the love He has for you. Renounce the lies; today choose to believe the truth.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear Father, my Father. I confess I have believed lies about myself. I renounce these negative thoughts and feelings and command their power over me to be broken in the precious name of Jesus Christ! I choose to accept the truth, that you personally created me as a masterpiece to do the good things you have sent me here for. Thank you, dear Father, for giving me significance.
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

Hypocrite

TODAY’S VERSE

‘“Jesus replied, ‘You hypocrites! Isaiah was right when he prophesied about you, for he wrote, ‘These people honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me. Their worship is a farce.’”
Mark 7:6-7 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
According to Webster, a hypocrite is “a person who acts in contradiction to his or her stated beliefs or feelings, puts on a false appearance of virtue or religion.” None of us start out trying to be a hypocrite but so often it end up happening. What starts as a wonderful relationship with Christ somewhere along the way becomes a religion, a system of do’s and don’t. Whereas we found salvation as a free gift from Christ, we start to believe that God would love us more if we behaved certain ways. We slowly go from a relationship of grace to a system of works. We start spending more time knowing about God and less time knowing Him. And then it begins to happen. Our Christianity becomes more about church and less about our life. We know how to “talk” about Jesus but know nothing about “walking” with Him. Jesus said it this way, “These people honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me.” True worship is from the heart and Jesus says that ours has become a farce. It doesn’t have to be this way. Today, be real with God. Come to Him seeking to really know Him. Ask Him to reveal Himself to you in new and refreshing ways. Accept His love and forgiveness. Accept His grace and fellowship. Today, start afresh and begin to love Him again with all your heart, soul and mind.  

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear Father, help me search my heart. Help me to know where I have wandered from You. Forgive me for any hypocrisy and help me to embrace Your love simply living for You in return.
AMEN

Confess

TODAY’S VERSE
“If I had not confessed the sin in my heart, the Lord would not have listened. But God did listen! He paid attention to my prayer.”
Psalm 66:18-19 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
Our heart is key to our relationship with God. Our emotions, motives, beliefs, assumptions, self image, and so much more all interface in our heart. If we are tempted or in denial to our own behavior, it is in our heart. So it stands to reason, if we have sin in our life, we know it in our heart. When there is sin, it is in contrast to God’s purposes; so why would our communication to God even be heard? That is what David is trying to say. God is not interested in our deception, lies or rationalizations. He would rather have our confession, repentance and humility. When we come to Him in this way, there is open communication. Love, joy and peace can be shared because our hearts are in tune with His. Today, protect your heart. Keep your conscious clear, be honest with God in all you do.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, forgive me for all the times I have held sin in my heart. I come to you repentant. Help me keep my conscious clean. Help me to constantly be honest with you and confess all my wrong doing. I pray in Jesus’ name.
AMEN
