His Word

TODAY’S VERSE
“All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right. God uses it to prepare and equip his people to do every good work.”
II Timothy 3:16-17

TODAY’S THOUGHT
How often do we pray for direction? How many times do we just long to hear God’s voice? How many times a week do we cry out for wisdom? The good news is that God has created a way to speak to us, give us wisdom and guide us. It is through His written word, the Bible. Paul was telling Timothy how important the Bible was. He shared that the Bible is inspired by God for the purpose of teaching us, convicting us, correcting us and equipping us for His service. There is no other source that God uses to communicate to us more effectively. Through the power and guidance of the Holy Spirit, God is able to speak to us in a personal and intimate way. It is easy to get busy and a day goes by, then two, pretty soon a week, then a month. Before you know it, you are not spending any time getting to know God or His word. We were not meant to live life without the word of God. It is like going through life with a hole in your heart. Instead, let God fill the emptiness. Get a Bible today and put it near your favorite chair. And then each day start spending a few minutes letting God teach you. He will. He longs to fellowship with you and teach you His word, but you have to make the first move. Why not start today?

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear God, thank you for the Bible. I know that it was written to give me wisdom and guidance. Help me to read it, learn it and use it in my everyday experience. Teach me Father to love Your word that I might live for You.
AMEN

Search Me

TODAY’S VERSE
“Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.”
Psalm 139:23-24 (NIV)

“Let us examine our ways and test them, and let us return to the LORD.”
Lamentations 3:40 (NIV)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
“You shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free.” These famous words were said by Jesus. Although He was referring to the truth of salvation, the larger application is true as well. Truth will set us free. Free from bondage, free from negative thinking, free from poor choices. But truth can be elusive. This is why we must call upon the Lord to help us be honest with ourself. David did this. He asked God to search the deepest parts of his mind and heart and lead him in the truth. Jeremiah in Lamentations encourages us to, “examine our ways and test them.” And God always has our best in mind. His purpose isn’t to fail us, embarrass us or send us back a grade. His desire is to encourage and motivate us, moving us toward maturity. What better way to mature than coming before God, examining our progress and letting Him coach us through the power of His word and the Holy Spirit. This is consistent with God’s will for our life. Jeremiah wrote it this way, “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.” Today, let God examine your heart. Seek His direction and let Him develop the plans He has for your life.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, search me and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.
AMEN

God’s Word

TODAY’S VERSE
“The commandments of the LORD are right, bringing joy to the heart.”
Psalms 19:8 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
The Bible is a precious gift from God. Divinely inspired, it was written in order that we might know how to live. The Bible inspires, convicts, guides, warns and teaches us. David wrote that believing what the Bible says is right and following its precepts brings joy to our heart.
He then goes on to share in a very poetic way, how valuable the word of God is. He writes, “The commands of the LORD are clear, giving insight for living. – The laws of the LORD are true; each one is fair. They are more desirable than gold, even the finest gold. They are sweeter than honey, even honey dripping from the comb. They are a warning to your servant, a great reward for those who obey them.” Today, spend time with God and His word and let it bring a deep joy into your heart.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, thank You for Your word. Speak to me, guide me, correct me, inspire me. Teach me how to live. Give me a deep and lasting joy deep down in my heart.
AMEN
