Love God

TODAY’S VERSE
“I love the Lord because”
Psalms 116:1 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
I love the Lord because? Go ahead and fill in the blank. The Psalmist includes reasons like, “Saved me from death.” “Listens to me.” “Saves me.” “Is kind and good.” and “Gives help to those in need.” The Apostle John  writes, “We love Him because He first loved us.” How about you? Why do you love the Lord? What is it that you could praise God for? Worship in the expression of praise and gratitude for all that God is and all that He does. Today let worship be a part of your day. Thank God for the many reasons you love Him.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear God, I love You. I come now with a heart full of gratitude for all You are and do. Thank You for Your love, mercy and grace in my life.
AMEN

Thank God

TODAY’S VERSE
“Make thankfulness your sacrifice to God.”
Psalm 50:14 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
Why do we make it so hard? What is it about God that we think we have to earn His love? It’s not that God wants us to. He doesn’t. The fact is we can’t! However, there is something deep inside of us that wants to feel we have worth, and the only way we know to do that is to “earn” our worth. But what if you could see it another way? What if you started to believe that you have intrinsic worth? That you were created by a God that saw you as something He wanted to create and that He took great pleasure in creating you? What if you started to believe that God loves you because you are you! If you could start to grasp that, then you would begin to understand today’s verse. God wants your worship of thanksgiving. He doesn’t want sacrifices to appease Him, or to bring you into a right relationship with Him. He wants you to realize that as a Christian you are already His child and that you have all the love and acceptance by Him that you would ever need. All He desires is “thanks”. A heartfelt thank you, this is the offering He desires. A deep sense of appreciation and gratitude, this is what God wants from you. Today, let the love of Christ fill your heart and bring a sacrifice of thankfulness to Him.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, I come and bow before You. I am humbled by Your love for me. I could never earn it, but today I want to stop and say Thank-You, God, for Your love for me. Thank You for Your care and provision. Thank You, Heavenly Father, for all You are and do. I worship You in the matchless name of Jesus.
AMEN

Blessing or Blesser?

TODAY’S VERSE
“Jesus asked, ‘Were not all ten cleansed? Where are the other nine? Was no one found to return and give praise to God except this foreigner?’ Then he said to him, “Rise and go; your faith has made you well.”’
Luke 17:17-19 (NIV)

TODAY’S MESSAGE
It is so easy to seek the blessing more than the blesser. Here were ten lepers all with the same putrefying disease. All with the same hopeless situation. Unless. Unless the Jesus that they heard about could really do miracles. Unless this Jesus was as compassionate as everyone said He was. They came to seek a blessing and as Jesus came down the road, a blessing they received. All ten were healed. But only one gave thanks to the blesser. He was the one that was touched in his body and his soul. He is the one that stopped to worship and give thanks. The nine came to get a blessing, the tenth met the blesser. How different are we? Is it possible that we have gotten so use to our faith that we are running on auto-pilot? We get our daily dose of blessing and go down the road as if nothing significant has happened. But let something go wrong. Then what do we scramble for? We cry out again like the leper for a blessing. But, it is not a blessing that we need. It is the blesser. It is Jesus, who loves us, that we need to seek. We need to come to Him and let Him know our situation and then commune with Him and let Him guide us. He is what our soul requires. Today, let us commit our situation to God and come to Him, seeking the blesser not the blessing. He is the blessing.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, forgive me for being more worried about blessings than worship. Forgive me for taking You for granted. You are what my life needs. You are the blessing. Today, I choose to seek Your fellowship more than anything else. In Jesus’ name.
AMEN
