TODAY’S VERSE

Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything.
Philippians 4:6 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
Sometimes we make things harder than they should be. We see today’s verse and we think it is about ceasing to worry. However it is more about beginning to pray. It is a matter of substitution. Worry can become a habit and a habit is a cue that leads to a behavior and results in a reward. Paul is saying to take the cue, the situation that sends a warning to your mind, and change the behavior. Instead of worry, substitute prayer. He writes, “Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done.” And here is the good news. We get a better reward! While we believe our worrying and fretting gives us some sort of protection or peace, Paul says that prayer gives us so much more! He writes, “Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.” Today, when a troubling thought comes your way, stop the worrying and substitute it with prayer.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear Father, help me not to worry about anything but to pray to You about everything. Help me to experience Your peace. Guard my heart and my mind as I live in the awareness of Christ and His love.
AMEN

TODAY’S VERSE

We also pray that you will be strengthened with all his glorious power so you will have all the endurance and patience you need.
Colossians 1:11 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
We were meant to live a supernatural life. Not as a superhuman or a fictional superhero but as a person that is empowered by God. It is His supernatural power that gives us strength to persevere. He gives us the patience and endurance we need to live our life no matter what the circumstances. Knowing Him and His love for us, knowing His power available to us, gives us an attitude full of hope and peace. He sustains us. So as Paul prayed for the church you can also pray that you will be strengthened with all His glorious power having all the endurance and patience you need.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear Father, Almighty God, I pray that I will be strengthened with all Your glorious power so I will have all the endurance and patience I need.
AMEN

TODAY’S VERSE

So we have not stopped praying for you since we first heard about you. 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
What could you do with it? What would your life be if you had complete knowledge of God’s will combined with spiritual wisdom and understanding? Solomon encouraged us to seek wisdom as if it were gold. Paul goes a step farther. He prays that God would give us the knowledge of His will. Do you pray for that? To know God’s will in the affairs of your life would change everything. To have the assurance of what He wants you to do would give you the confidence you need to live the life He wants you to. To have spiritual wisdom and understanding would help you when you are stuck, when you are baffled by life’s up and downs. Oh to have His wisdom and understanding when you are tempted to believe lies about yourself, about life, and about God. How blessed you would be having His gift of spiritual wisdom to discern between good and evil, right and wrong, truth and lies. If Paul prayed this for the church, you can pray it for yourself. Today do that. Ask God, and do not stop until He gives you spiritual wisdom, understanding and the complete knowledge of His will.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear Heavenly Father, the giver of all good things. I ask you for spiritual wisdom, understanding and the complete knowledge of Your will. Guide me; direct me toward this end I pray.
AMEN

TODAY’S VERSE

She said, “You are the God who sees me.”
Genesis 16:13 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
What a mess. It could be the script for any modern day soap opera. Sarai cannot have a child so instead of believing God, she tells her husband, Abram, to go ahead and have relations with her servant Hagar. Because of his lack of faith in God’s promise, promise that he and Sarai would have a child, he agrees to Sarai’s plan. Hagar becomes pregnant but unexpectedly Sarai gets jealous and outraged. Hagar, confused and afraid, runs for her life. An angel of God finds her and says, “Return to your mistress, and submit to her authority.” Then he added, “I will give you more descendants than you can count. You are now pregnant and will give birth to a son. You are to name him Ishmael (which means ‘God hears’), for the LORD has heard your cry of distress.” The comforting fact in the midst of all this drama is that God notices Hagar in her pain. He was aware of her plight. Hagar, feeling insignificant and alone is overwhelmed at God’s attention and proclaims, “You are the God who sees me!” And that is enough. His presence heals the sick, calms the storm and raises the dead. His awareness empowers us with the peace that passes all our understanding. Today, know that He notices you! He knows your plight. He hears your prayers. He sees your circumstances and comes to you with the same message of old, “The Lord has heard your cry of distress.” Go in peace.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear Father, help me to notice that You notice me. Help me become aware of Your loving presence this day I pray.
AMEN

TODAY’S VERSE

Oh, what joy for those whose disobedience is forgiven, whose sin is put out of sight!
Psalms 32:1 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
How clear is your conscience? How heavy is your heart with unconfessed sin? David knew how important it was to keep his conscience clear with the Lord. He wrote, “When I refused to confess my sin, my body wasted away, and I groaned all day long. Day and night your hand of discipline was heavy on me. My strength evaporated like water in the summer heat.” Two things need to happen in order to get out of this dilemma. The first is to repent. That simply means to agree with God. Our behavior and attitude was wrong, an offense to God. It was sin. The second is to tell God about it and seek His forgiveness. This is confession. The great news is He is waiting with His unconditional love and forgiveness. David knew the joy of forgiveness. He wrote about the freedom he experienced. He said, “Finally, I confessed all my sins to you and stopped trying to hide my guilt. I said to myself, “I will confess my rebellion to the LORD.” And you forgave me! All my guilt is gone.” Today examine your heart. Confess any sin to God and be forgiven and free.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear Father, help me search my heart. Help me acknowledge any sin that has offended you. I desire Your forgiveness and clear conscience. In Jesus’ Name.
AMEN

TODAY’S VERSE

I will boast only in the LORD; let all who are helpless take heart.
Psalms 34:2 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
Learned helplessness. That depressive state of mind where we believe that there is nothing we can do to change our situation. We have come to the conclusion that we are both helpless and hopeless in our circumstance. David knew what that felt like. How many battles did he have to fight? How many people did he see die? How long did he have to run from the mad King Saul that wanted him dead for no apparent reason? Yet David sends a message to all who would feel helpless. He says, “Take heart!” He continues writing, “I prayed to the LORD, and he answered me. He freed me from all my fears. – In my desperation I prayed, and the LORD listened; he saved me from all my troubles.” Today know that you are not hopeless, you are not helpless. You can take heart, knowing that you can pray and the Lord will listen. He will free you.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear Father. Sometimes I feel so hopeless. Help me. Hear my prayer, answer me and free me from this helplessness. In Jesus’ name.
AMEN

TODAY’S VERSE

Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything.
Philippians 4:6 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
Don’t worry about anything? How hard is that? Worrying comes so naturally. Perhaps that is why we need supernatural help. Paul shares that the secret to “stopping” worry is “substituting” prayer. We need to pray about what we are worrying about. Paul elaborates, “Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done.” If we want to stop worrying we need to trust God with it. We let Him take the burden while focusing on having a heartfelt gratitude for all that He has done. When we take on this attitude of gratitude God is able to work in our hearts. Paul explains, “Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.” Today, stop worrying. Pray about whatever it is bothering you. Give thanks to God and let Him fill your heart and mind with His supernatural peace.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear Father, forgive me for worrying. I have not trusted You. Today, I bring You my burden and give thanks for all You have done. Fill me with Your peace I pray. In Jesus’ name.
AMEN
