TODAY’S VERSE
May he equip you with all you need for doing his will.
Hebrews 13:21 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
I love it. As Christians we have been called to be His disciples and help, “His will be done on earth as it is in Heaven.” Yet, at the same time God is commanding us to live for Him; He is there equipping, encouraging and empowering us! Jesus gave us the Holy Spirit to guide us, comfort us, and assist us. Peter writes, “By his divine power, God has given us everything we need for living a godly life.” Paul adds, “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.” I am not sure what you believe about yourself, but this is true. God created you and wants you to live for Him. You are His representative here on earth and He has given you everything you need to fulfill your destiny. Today choose to live for Him in all you do. He has equipped you to do it.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear Father, thank You for creating me to be Your disciple. Thank You for equipping me to live for You. I choose to live for You this day. In Jesus’ name.
AMEN

TODAY’S VERSE
Therefore, let us offer through Jesus a continual sacrifice of praise to God, proclaiming our allegiance to his name. And don’t forget to do good and to share with those in need. These are the sacrifices that please God.
Hebrews 13:15-16 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
When you read the word, “sacrifice” in the Bible, what do you think of? In the Old Testament tradition you may be thinking of the sacrificial offerings of animals for our sins. In the Pharisaical tradition you might think of sacrificial behavior, in the sense of self-denial, asceticism or the strict following of ritualistic traditions. But as we look at today’s passage we the types of sacrifices that pleases God. What God is pleased with is when we praise Him for who He is and all the good He has done. Another sacrifice that pleases God is when we give ourself to Him. When we submit to Him our allegiance and live for Him. Finally, when we do good and share with those in need, this is a sacrifice that is pleasing to God. Today, you can bring your sacrifice to God by praising Him, giving yourself allegiance to Him and living for others.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear Father, I praise You for who You are and all that You have done in my life. I give You my allegiance and pledge to do good and help others. Please accept my humble sacrifice. In Jesus’ name.
AMEN

TODAY’S VERSE
Your road led through the sea, your pathway through the mighty waters—a pathway no one knew was there!
Psalms 77:19 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
That’s what I love about our Heavenly Father. When we don’t know the way, He does. Here is Moses leading the people of Israel out of Egypt. What was His plan? Did he have a bridge over the Red Sea? Did he plan on going around it? All we know is that he came to the end of the road. The sea was in front of him and the Egyptian army behind him. But there was God. The Lord showed Moses a pathway that wasn’t on any map. God led them in a roundabout way through the wilderness toward the Red Sea. Miraculously He led them with a pillar of cloud during the day and a pillar of fire by night. Then when they came to the Red Sea God told Moses to raise His staff and walk across on dry ground! Through the whole ordeal they followed a pathway of God’s own making. He will do the same for you. What are you up against? What trouble is pursuing you? Where in your life does it feel hopeless? Trust God today. He will show you a way!

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear Father, You know my needs. You know the way through my wilderness. Help me to trust You and follow Your path.
AMEN

TODAY’S VERSE
Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a huge crowd of witnesses to the life of faith, let us strip off every weight that slows us down, especially the sin that so easily trips us up. And let us run with endurance the race God has set before us.
Hebrews 12:1 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
Life is not a sprint. It is a long distance race. However, with all the stress, all the demands of life, in our “have to have it NOW!” world we live in, it feels like a sprint. But that is the deception of what has been called the “Tyranny of the urgent!” The seemingly urgent interruptions keep us off focus. They creates stress, worry and fear. We run around like Chicken Little crying, “The sky is falling!” Yet all the while God is still on His Throne. He knows all about us. We are still in His loving arms. Instead of continually reacting and attempting to cope, we need to take away those things that interrupt our spirituality. We need to get rid of habits that lead us in the wrong direction or keep tripping us up. We need to pray and manage our time rather than being a slave to it. We need to prioritize our activities and make sure we are doing the things that keep us spiritually alive. The author of Hebrews writes, “We do this by keeping our eyes on Jesus, the champion who initiates and perfects our faith.” It’s all about the focus. We focus on Jesus. Today, see the long journey before you and decide to travel it with Jesus one day at a time.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear Jesus, help me keep my focus on You. Help me live one day at a time, knowing that I am on this glorious journey with You. Help me rid myself of whatever it is that is hindering me. Help me Lord I pray.
AMEN

TODAY’S VERSE
An elder must live a blameless life.
Titus 1:6 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
Paul had sent Titus to appoint Elders in the different house churches. They were to lead the church. Paul wrote, “An elder is a manager of God’s household, so he must live a blameless life.” An Elder also needs a strong belief in God’s word. Again Paul wrote, “He must have a strong belief in the trustworthy message he was taught; then he will be able to encourage others with wholesome teaching and show those who oppose it where they are wrong.” But what about you? What if you are not an Elder? What if you are not a teacher? Can you live any way you want? Of course not! Paul also shares the moral responsibility of an Elder and it is safe to say that these would apply to you as well. He writes, “He must be faithful to his wife, and his children must be believers who don’t have a reputation for being wild or rebellious. – He must not be arrogant or quick-tempered; he must not be a heavy drinker, violent, or dishonest with money. Rather, he must enjoy having guests in his home, and he must love what is good. He must live wisely and be just. He must live a devout and disciplined life.” These same behaviors apply to you. You may not be called to be an Elder but you are called to live for Christ.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear Father, help me live for You. Help me to mature and live the kind of life You have called me to. In Jesus’ name.
AMEN

TODAY’S VERSE
Mary responded, “I am the Lord’s servant. May everything you have said about me come true.”
Luke 1:38 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
It was hard to take in. The Angel had visited Mary and told her that she was favored among women and would give birth to the Messiah. It seemed so impossible. She was a humble young woman and a virgin but the Angel explained that it was God’s will and unlike her relative, Zechariah who doubted the Angel, Mary submitted to the Lord’s will. She said, “May everything you have said about me come true.” What if we said that? What if we took God at His word when He says that we are totally forgiven, deeply loved and His very own child? How would our life be different if we really believed that nothing can separate us from His love and that He will always give us grace and mercy in our time of need? What joy would permeate our life if we believed with all our heart that we are complete in Him, that we are His workmanship created for good work and He has given us everything we need for Godliness? Today, believe. Say with Mary, “I am Your servant God. May I believe that everything You say about me is true!”

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear Father, forgive me for my doubt and apathy. Help me live as Your servant. I want to know and believe that everything You say about me is true.
AMEN

TODAY’S VERSE
Faith is the confidence that what we hope for will actually happen; it gives us assurance about things we cannot see.
Hebrews 11:1 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
Faith is a confidence. It is not wishful thinking. It is not mental assent. It is an assurance that what we believe will happen, will happen. But it is not faith in the event, it is faith in the event maker. We often act as if faith is a magic chant. We say, “Power is in our words.” But faith is so much more than words. It is sensing His will and agreeing with Him. This only comes out of a relationship, a deep heart felt experience with the Lord Himself. Oh that we would know Him more so when life’s situations come, we can talk to Him, be assured of His will, and pray in faith believing. Today grow in your relationship with Him and your faith and confidence will grow too.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear Father, I want to know You more. I want to know Your will. I want to do Your bidding. I want a deep loving relationship with You so my faith is an outgrowth of knowing who You are.
AMEN
