Monday, Monday

Psalm 118 24.jpg

 

Verse of the Day: Psalm 118:24

This is the day the Lord has made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.

 

If you’re reading this, it means God woke you up this morning and you have another day to praise and glorify God.  Each day is a precious gift from God and you should make the most of it. Rejoice, be thankful, be kind and be open to new opportunities to be blessed and to be a blessing to others.

No Other Way

John 14 6

 

Verse of the Day: John 14:6

Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.

 

Through the sacrifice made by Jesus on Calvary, God made a way for us to be saved from death and be with Him in heaven for all eternity.  There is no other way to come to the Father, but through the Son.  Not by works, merit or personal sacrifices.  Jesus is the only way, He is our Savior, and there is no other way.

Make Wise Decisions

James 1 5

 

Verse of the Day:  James 1:5

If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you.

 

When you have a decision to make that you are uncertain about, take it to the Lord in prayer.  God is wise and all knowing, the giver of all good things.  Bring your concerns to Him with sincerity and ask for guidance and wisdom to make the right decision.

Strong & Courageous

Joshua 1 9.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Joshua 1:9

Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous.  Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.

 

The Lord has commanded you to be strong and courageous.  When you are afraid and discouraged turn to God.  It doesn’t matter what it is, you don’t have to do it alone, He will be with you every step of the way.  Trust in God and by His power He will give you the strength and courage to get through anything.

Take Refuge in the Lord

Psalm 57 1

 

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 57:1

Have mercy on me, my God, have mercy on me, for in you I take refuge.  I will take refuge in the shadow of your wings until the disaster has passed.

 

There are times when God delivers you from the storm and there are times when He wants you to go through the storm so that when it’s over you come out stronger than before. If you find yourself going through a storm, take refuge in the shadow of His wings and remember He is always protecting you with his love and mercy and He will see you through it.

Getting Through Dark Days

Psalm 43 5.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 43:5

Why, my soul, are you downcast?  Why so disturbed within me?  Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior and my God.

 

Life is not always sunshine and flowers.  There are days when bad things happen, days when sadness creeps in and there are days when we just feel lonely.  In these times, you need to lift your head toward God and give praise to your Savior.  Thank Him for all the good in your life. God loves you more than you will ever know. Put your hope in Him and rely on Him to get you through even the darkest of days.
