My Needs

TODAY’S VERSE
“Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done.”
Philippians 4:6 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
We have choices. Paul starts this passage of scripture by saying, “Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything.” This is easy to say, but hard to do! So Paul follows it with a simple but profound credo, “Tell God what you need!” “Thank God for all He has done.” We can all do that. Do you have a need? Tell God about it. Has something good happened in your life? Thank God for it. What is so amazing is Paul’s promise. If we will start sharing our needs with God and become more and more thankful for what He is doing Pauls promises, “Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.” It’s simple, why not start today, “Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done.”

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear Lord Jesus, I will start today. I will tell you my needs. I will  come to You and share my heart. And then I will be thankful for what You are doing. As I do, please help me to experience Your peace, help me experience it in my heart and mind.
AMEN

TODAY’S AFFIRMATION & MEDITATION
I am trusting God with all my needs  and thanking Him with all my heart
Quiet yourself and visualize yourself coming to God. See Him as the most loving Father in the whole universe and He loves you. Sense the freedom and joy as you come and share with Him all your needs. Sense how thankful you are for His love and concern. See yourself talking with Him sharing, laughing, and loving the way He loves you and provides for your needs.

First Love

TODAY’S VERSE
“So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness.”
Colossians 2:6-7

“I know your deeds, your hard work and your perseverance… Yet I hold this against you: You have forsaken your first love. Remember the height from which you have fallen! Repent and do the things you did at first.”
Revelation 2:2, 4-5

TODAY’S THOUGHT
Remember when you first came to Christ? You were aware of your need. You were humbled by His love, appreciative of His sacrifice for you. You wanted to help everyone else know Him. What happened? How did we allow our intimate relationship with Christ to become a ritual? When did we trade our freedom? When did we forsake our joy? Have we traded our relationship with Christ for a religion? Have we given up grace for rules and regulations? Have we traded the mission of the church for membership in a country club? Paul encouraged the church in Colossians to continue to live in Christ just like they did the first day they tasted of salvation. The first day the Spirit of God was born in their heart, the first time the tears from God’s forgiveness stained their cheeks. John wrote to the church in Ephesus that even though they worked hard and persevered, they lost their first love. He admonished them to repent and do the things that they did at first. Oh, that we would never forget the wonder that God loves us. Or extinguish the joy from knowing that He has chosen us to be His children. Today, examine your heart. Do you feel far from God? Who moved? Go back to the place you met Christ. Rededicate your heart to Him. Just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live in Him.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, take me back to the time I first knew You. Renew the joy in my soul. Reignite the fire that burned in my heart. Help me to remember and to live this day in the fresh awareness of Your love and forgiveness.
In Jesus’ name. AMEN

God’s Love

TODAY’S VERSE
“Show me your unfailing love in wonderful ways.”
Psalms 17:7 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
God loves us in so many wonderful ways. Have you ever stopped to think of all the many ways God loves you? What of His forgiveness, His grace and mercy? Have you pondered His provision, protection and promises? Have you stopped to thank Him for all that you have, all that you have done and all that you are? What of our hope, faith and love He freely gives us? There’s the fruit of the Spirit, the whole armor of God and spiritual gifts. Not to mention Christ’s death and resurrection. And what of the very life He gives us? Every breath we breathe, all the physical blessings that we take for granted. Finally, there is family, friends and wonderful fellowship with those we love. Today, take time to thank God for all the wonderful ways He loves you.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, forgive me for taking Your love for granted. How blinded, how self centered I have been. Today, help me to see all the many wonderful ways You love me.
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

Be A Blessing

TODAY’S VERSE
“Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.”
Ephesians 4:29 (NIV)

TODAY’S MESSAGE
What would you do if you were given two potions, one that could cure cancer the other that would make people deathly sick? It is obvious that you would give every cancer victim you could find the cure and no doubt, do away with the poison. Yet what do we do with our words? With each sentence there is the potential to cure or destroy. We can use our tongue to heal those that are hurting, bring joy to a broken heart or hope to those that are suffering. Yet what do we choose to do? So often we choose to use unwholesome words that tear down, wound and destroy those that get in our way. James speaks about this in the forth chapter of the book of James. He writes, “Sometimes it (the tongue) praises our Lord and Father, and sometimes it curses those who have been made in the image of God. And so blessing and cursing come pouring out of the same mouth. Surely, my brothers and sisters, this is not right!” Today, be careful with what you say to others. Use the wonderful gift of language as a blessing to others, not a curse.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, help me use my tongue as a blessing. Direct my mouth with Your power and help me use my words to share love and peace with others.
AMEN
