TODAY’S VERSE

Even before he made the world, God loved us and chose us in Christ to be holy and without fault in his eyes.
Ephesians 1:4 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
Guilt, shame, condemnation, these negative concepts fill the minds of so many Christians. They are the result of events, circumstances and lies that have shaped us. How contrary to what God thinks of us. Paul wants us to see the truth so he takes us back to the beginning, before we were ever influenced in this world. He shows us who we really are. He confirms that before the world was ever made, you were part of God’s plan. He created you holy and without any shame. So even though you were born into an earthly family you were first born into God’s. Paul writes, “God decided in advance to adopt us into his own family by bringing us to himself through Jesus Christ. This is what he wanted to do, and it gave him great pleasure.” Can you imagine that? God received great pleasure in creating you. He sees you as His child, holy, without fault in His eyes. The question is, do you? Today, believe it. See yourself as you really are, God’s beloved child.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear Father, thank You that before You made the world, You loved me and chose me in Christ to be holy and without fault in Your eyes. Thank You for adopting me into Your family. Help me today to live in this wonderful spiritual reality.
AMEN

TODAY’S VERSE

What is important is faith expressing itself in love.
Galatians 5:6 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
It was hard enough trying to win people to Christ who had no idea of a monotheistic God. But to have to fight his fellow Christians over keeping the law was a real burden to Paul. In his letter to the Galatians, Paul told the Christians that Christ had set them free, not the law, and he encouraged them to live by the Spirit. He then stated what was real important; that is to have a faith that expresses itself in love. What a beautiful synopsis of our Christian life. Faith in Christ that results in Him loving others through us is our top priority. Today, ask God to increase your faith in ways that express your love to others.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, thank You for the death and resurrection of Christ. Please help me increase my faith and live a life that is an expression of Your love.
AMEN

Self Love

TODAY’S VERSE
The LORD is merciful and compassionate, slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love.
Psalms 145:8 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
If God is so merciful and compassionate, slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love toward us, why aren’t we that way toward ourself? Have you ever paid attention to your inner chatter when you don’t behave the way you felt you should? Sometimes we verge on self abuse. Where does that come from? Not from God. It is time we really start to believe that God is as merciful and compassionate as David says He is. We must let God’s forgiveness, patience, love and mercy toward us permeate our mind. When we start to see that God loves us that way, we will start to love ourself as well. His love will compel us to believe that we are lovable and forgivable helping us to treat ourself the way He does. Today, believe that the LORD is merciful and compassionate, slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear Father, thank You for being merciful, compassionate, slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love. Help me to be the same way toward myself.
AMEN

TODAY’S VERSE

Keep me safe, O God, for I have come to you for refuge.
Psalms 16:1 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
Safety, it can be evasive. You can be in the safest place on earth and still feel insecure. The feeling of being unsafe is not a location; it is a state of mind. It is waking up worrying about doing something wrong that day, or dreading that someone will not be pleased with you. It is trying to stay out of trouble and being ready to please everyone. It is walking through our day as if a predator is in the room. We are never fully peaceful, always on guard. David knew trouble. But he also knew safety. He was safe in the cave even when Saul’s army was at the foot of the mountain. Why? Because He knew how to live in God’s presence. He writes, “I know the LORD is always with me. I will not be shaken, for he is right beside me. No wonder my heart is glad, and I rejoice. My body rests in safety. You will show me the way of life, granting me the joy of your presence.” God’s presence and His unconditional love for you trumps all fear. Today, go in peace. God’s presence is with you, He is right beside You and you are safe.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear Father, I am so tired of feeling unsafe. Today, I surrender my fears to You. I accept Your love for me. Help me be conscious of Your loving presence. In Jesus’ name.
AMEN

TODAY’S VERSE

May you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is.
Ephesians 3:18 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
I think Paul knew how hard it is to really grasp that we are deeply loved by God. During our first year of life we build what I call, “I am loved capacity” from the interaction of loving caregivers. In our second year we begin to notice that life can become disturbing, but thanks to our capacity we can return to the feeling that “I am loved.” The trouble is many of us did not experience this kind of environment. We did not build this deep emotional safe feeling. When circumstances go awry we go into shame, anger, doubt and fear. Paul teaches that no matter what our past, we can know God’s love. God can build our capacity to know deep in our heart that we are unconditionally loved by Him. That is why Paul writes, “May you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is.” He says it again, “May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully.” When we do begin to understand how loved we are, Paul promises, “Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God.” Today, may you know how loved you really are!

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear Father, help me to really understand how deeply loved I am by You. May I return to it again and again and again. Help me to know how safe and secure I am in You so I can be complete with the fullness of You life and power.
AMEN

TODAY’S VERSE

I have loved you even as the Father has loved me. Remain in my love.
John 15:9 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
It is one thing to know love intellectually and another to know it experientially. It is also one thing to have experienced someone’s love and another to remain in that love. How many times have you heard that Jesus loves you? How much of that has gone from your head to your heart? How are you experiencing your relationship with Jesus today? Can you say that you have remained in His love? If not, come back. God hasn’t moved. He hasn’t stopped loving you. His love for you is unconditional, unfailing and unquenchable. He has loved You as the Father has loved Him with eternal love. Today, return and remain in His love.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear Jesus, thank You for Your love. Help me today to really grasp what that means. Help me sense it in all its warmth and power. Help me remain in the consciousness of your love all day.
AMEN

TODAY’S VERSE

We ask God to give you complete knowledge of his will and to give you spiritual wisdom and understanding.
Colossians 1:9 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
Some things are more important than others. And yet they are easy to miss. We get so busy living our life going from day to day coping when all the while God is offering us so much more. Paul knew how important it was to focus on our spiritual life that he prayed that God would give the Colossians the complete knowledge of His will. He prayed that God would give them spiritual wisdom and understanding. How often do we pray this way? Do we start our day out asking God to give us complete knowledge of His will? How much time do we spend trying to attain spiritual wisdom and understanding from the Lord? We should. Our spiritual life depends on it. When we do, Paul promises that the way we live will always honor and please the Lord, and our lives will produce every kind of good fruit as we learn to know God better and better. Today seek spiritual wisdom and understanding.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, I ask that You would, through the power of Your Holy Spirit, give me spiritual wisdom and understanding and the complete knowledge of Your will for my life. In Jesus’ name.
AMEN
