Rejoice

TODAY’S VERSE
“But let the godly rejoice. Let them be glad in God’s presence. Let them be filled with joy. Sing praises to God and to his name! Sing loud praises to him who rides the clouds. His name is the LORD—rejoice in his presence!”
Psalms 68:3-4 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
Joy comes from relationships. And one of the most joyous relationships we can have is with God. Why? Because God created us that way. He created us for fellowship with Him. It is the longing of God’s heart to have communion with us. We love our children and we hope that they rejoice in that fact, but who is really blessed? Isn’t it us, the parents? We are the ones who had the joy of bringing them into the world and nurturing them into maturity. Aren’t we the real winners? What joy our children bring us. Likewise, God gets great pleasure out of His relationship with us. And at the same time we are blessed by God. How thankful this should make us. How full of praise. So today, rejoice that you are loved by God, deeply loved. Be glad in His presence for He desires your relationship. Be filled with joy that you bring the Almighty pleasure. Sing praises for all His love for you. Rejoice!

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, how I thank You for Your love for me. How full of praise I am in the thought that I can really know You. How glad I am to dwell in Your presence. Thank You Lord. How I praise Your name.
AMEN

Friendship

TODAY’S VERSE
“There are “friends” who destroy each other, but a real friend sticks closer than a brother.”
Proverbs 18:24 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
The more I study the scriptures, the more I study human behavior, the more I am convinced that we need healthy relationships. Our brains, our capacity for joy, our spirituality all function best when we are in healthy authentic relationships with God and others. Have you ever noticed the difference you experience when some one graces you with a social smile compared to someone who looks you in the eyes and communicates a real empathy? Friendship is real. With friendship, we can be real. Jesus said to His disciples, “I have called you friends.” He wants to be the same with you! Today, focus on being a friend with God and others. Be real, be authentic, build trust and empathy. True joy comes with relationships.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, help me to build true friendships with You and others. Give me the love, courage and strength to do this, I pray.
AMEN

Live At Peace

TODAY’S VERSE
“Live in harmony with each other. Don’t be too proud to enjoy the company of ordinary people. And don’t think you know it all! Never pay back evil with more evil. Do things in such a way that everyone can see you are honorable. Do all that you can to live in peace with everyone.”
Romans 12:16-18 (NLT)

TODAY’S MESSAGE
God wants us to live in harmony with others. This is easier said than done. Yet as God’s ambassadors it is imperative that we really try. Ken Sande, the author of “The Peacemaker” writes, “Something significant happens when you decide to follow God’s instructions for relationships, especially His insights on conflict. When you focus on Him and His ways, you do more than cope. When you choose to study and act on God’s plan in every area of your existence, you’re living for His glory. – When you glorify God by doing relationships according to His plan, you’re allowing God to reign in your life. You’re enjoying a powerful connection that alters your whole life. And it’s far more than personal. You’re also giving everyone around you a reason to respect and praise God’s fame.” Conflicts will come, but today choose God’s way of dealing with them. Turn it over to Him, live in harmony, don’t be proud, don’t think you know it all, don’t repay evil with evil and do all you can to be at peace with everyone.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, I need Your help with relationships. I get so frustrated. I need Your Holy Spirit to guide me and help me love others the way You do. Help me, guide me and empower me I pray in Jesus’ name.
AMEN
