Promises

TODAY’S VERSE
“Through his glory and integrity he has given us His promises that are of the highest value. Through these promises you will share in the divine nature because you have escaped the corruption that sinful desires cause in the world.
II Peter 1:4-4 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
Peter reminds us that God has given us great and precious promises. Promises are those great weapons that we have to counter negative thinging and painful emotions. How many times we feel out of sorts, emotionally troubled when all the while God’s promises are greater than our fears and circumstances. Promises like He will never leave you, or He has fully forgiven you and has prepared a place for you in glory. God promises that nothing can seperate us from His love and that there is no condemnation now that we are in Him. He has promised that the Holy Spirit is in us to comfort, guide and direct our life. He has promised that He has given us everything we need in order to live a Godly life. Peter knew this so he encourages us to, “make every effort to respond to God’s promises.” That’s the important key to promises. If we are going to enjoy the peace and joy that comes with the promises, we need to appropiate them. We need to respond to what He promises and act on it. When we do, we will share in His divine nature and escape the negative thinking that comes with our natural human disposition. 

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear Lord, I give this day to You and put my faith in You and Your love for me.  Help me focus on all the great and precious promises You have given me. Help me to trust You and to not to lean on my own understanding.
AMEN

TODAY’S AFFIRMATION & MEDITATION

True Happiness

TODAY’S VERSE
“Oh, the joys of those who do not follow the advice of the wicked, or stand around with sinners, or join in with mockers. But they delight in the law of the LORD, meditating on it day and night. They are like trees planted along the riverbank, bearing fruit each season. Their leaves never wither, and they prosper in all they do.”
Psalms 1:1-3 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
We spend so much of our time looking for happiness. We are searching for that one thing that will solve all our problems and bring us into a constant state of contentment. How many times have we thought, “If I just win the Lotto?”; “If I had a certain job”; “If I just looked different”. Fill in your own blank. We seem to look everywhere for lasting joy and yet it is right in front of us. In the very first chapter of Psalms, David writes about the secret to joy. He says it’s not found in the counsel of the ungodly, but rather real joy comes when we delight in God’s word and meditate on what He says. David Benner, in his book, “The Gift Of Being Yourself” writes, “Everything that is false about us arises from our belief that our deepest happiness will come from living life our way, not God’s way. Although we may say we want to trust God and surrender to his will, deep down we doubt that God is really capable of securing our happiness.” Is that how you feel? What is your reaction when you read, “But they delight in the law of the LORD, meditating on it day and night. They are like trees planted along the riverbank, bearing fruit each season. Their leaves never wither, and they prosper in all they do?” Do you believe God will bless you and give you deep joy by living according to His word or do you doubt that God is really capable of securing your happiness? You can’t believe both. Today, choose to follow God’s word and begin to meditate on it and apply it to your life. As you do, you will find joy.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, thank You for Your word. I ask that you would teach me and guide me through reading and meditating on what Your Holy word has to say. Help me find happiness, joy and true meaning as I come to You.
AMEN
