Comfort And Hope

TODAY’S VERSE
“LORD, you know the hopes of the helpless. Surely you will hear their cries and comfort them.”
Psalms 10:17 (NLT)

“Even when there was no reason for hope, Abraham kept hoping.”
Romans 4:18 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
There are times when we feel helpless. But it doesn’t mean we are hopeless. David shared that God can give us hope no matter how helpless we feel. He hears our cries and will bring us comfort. That is why Abraham kept hoping even when there was no reason for hope. Even when circumstances did not make any sense, it was the comfort of hope that allowed Abraham’s faith not to weaken. Paul shared that “Abraham never wavered in believing God’s promise. In fact, his faith grew stronger, and in this he brought glory to God.” Why did his faith grow stronger? Because He knew God and “he was fully convinced that God is able to do whatever he promises.” How my heart yearns for that kind of faith, that kind of trust, that kind of hope. Today, may we know God like David. May we believe God like Abraham. May our faith grow stronger. Today, let us keep hoping.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, help me know You better. Increase my faith. Help me to trust in You and be comforted and full of hope. In Jesus’ name.
AMEN

Stronger Faith

TODAY’S VERSE
“Abraham never wavered in believing God’s promise. In fact, his faith grew stronger, and in this he brought glory to God.”
Romans 4:20 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
How does that happen? How does one’s faith grow stronger? Abraham knew God and he was constantly being challenged by his life’s circumstances yet his faith grew stronger. How did this happen? Paul shares, “Abraham never wavered in believing God’s promise.” God called Abraham and promised that through him He was going to start a new nation. Hard times came, “God promised.” Detours, “God promised.” Danger and peril, “God promised.” And each time Abraham remembered God’s promise, his faith grew. Peter said it this way, “He (God) has given us His very great and precious promises, so that through them you may participate in the divine nature and escape the corruption in the world caused by evil desires.” God’s promises are true, but they do us no good if we don’t know them. Today, get to know God’s word and start to believe for yourself.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, help me know and believe Your promises. Help my faith grow stronger, even today. In Jesus’ name.
AMEN

Your God Is Too Small

TODAY’S VERSE
“Your unfailing love, O Lord, is as vast as the heavens; your faithfulness reaches beyond the clouds. Your righteousness is like the mighty mountains, your justice like the ocean depths.” Psalms 36:5-6 “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. May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God.” Ephesians 3:18-19

TODAY’S THOUGHT
How big is your God? In 1952, J.B. Phillips wrote a book called, “Your God Is Too Small.” It shook the Christian world. His theory was that many believers had misconceptions about God that were no more than superimposed human characteristics. God was a Santa Claus, a stern father, an impersonal clock maker, a kill joy. His book begged the question of how big was the God we visualized as we worshiped. In today’s scripture, David paints a picture for us to imagine when we think of God. He writes that God’s unfailing love is “vast as the heavens”, His faithfulness “reaches beyond the clouds.” He compares God’s righteousness to “mighty mountains” and His justice to the “ocean depths.” Even with David’s help, Paul knows that we cannot begin to understand how magnificent God really is by ourselves; so He prays that we may have power from God to really understand how wide, long, high and deep His love is. How can we begin to know how vast God is? How do we keep from making God too small? Paul shares the secret. He writes, “May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God.” Ask God to help you experience His love today. To really know it, feel it, sense it, see it. Ask Him to reveal Himself to you right now in ways you have never experienced Him before. If you do, what does God promise? He promises, “Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God.”

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father. Can it be true? Can I really experience your love today? Can I begin to know how deep, high, long and wide it really is? Pour into my heart a sense of Your presence. Help me imagine who You really are. Forgive me for making You so small. Enlarge my vision today, I pray.
AMEN

Covenant

TODAY’S VERSE
“But this is the new covenant I will make with the people of Israel on that day, says the LORD: ‘I will put my laws in their minds, and I will write them on their hearts. I will be their God, and they will be my people. And I will forgive their wickedness, and I will never again remember their sins.’”
Hebrews 8:10, 12 (NTL)

TODAY’S MESSAGE
We get married and say, “For better or for worst.” We buy a house and sign a loan agreement. We get bids on a job and award a contract. We accept a job for an agreed upon salary. We live much of our life with promises, contracts, pledges and covenants. How difficult is it when one of them is broken? Doesn’t it play havoc with our life? That is why I find it fascinating that God has actually made a covenant with us. Who are we that God would make us a promise? And yet what a promise He has made. And what I love the best is God does not break His promises. In today’s passage God is saying that He is making a covenant with us. He promises to make us His people by working in our heart and mind. He promises to be our God. And God is so serious about this that He takes away the one barrier that could ruin the whole promise. He does it with a promise of His own. He makes a covenant with you and I to absolutely forgive our wickedness and to never, never, not ever remember any of our sins. How great is that? How awesome? Only God could make a promise like that! Only God can keep it. Today, take God at His word and confess all your sins to Him. Let Him love you, let Him totally forgive You.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, thank You for Your precious promises. Thank You for promising to never remember any of my sins. I come to You today for total forgiveness and freedom.
AMEN
