Children Are a Blessing

Psalm 127 3

 

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 127:3

Children are a blessing and a gift from the Lord.

 

Every child is a blessing and a gift from God, unique and special in their own way.  It is up to us to guide, protect and to teach them the ways of the Lord.  Inspire and encourage your children by being an example of what it is to be a child of God.  Pray for your children and ask God to bless them and don’t forget to thank the Lord for this special blessing.

Experience God for Yourself

Psalm 34 8.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 34:8

Taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the one who takes refuge in him.

 

I invite you to experience the infinite goodness of the Lord.  He is perfect in every way, the author of all good things, everything about Him is good and He loves you.  Turn to Him, put your hope in Him, and put your trust in Him alone.  He is the only one that can fill your heart with peace.  You will never know what it’s like to have a relationship with the Lord until you make an effort to really experience Him for yourself through prayer and reading the Word of God.

Meekness is Not Weakness

Matthew 5 5

 

Verse of the Day:  Matthew 5:5

Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth

 

Many would consider being meek as being weak.  When they hear the word meek they automatically imagine someone who allows people to walk all over them, someone who is subservient.  But the kind of meekness the Bible talks about is different.  It’s being so strong that you are in control of your emotions and actions. Don’t confuse meekness for weakness.  To be meek is to be:  submissive to God, obedient, patient and peaceful.

Hope

Jeremiah 17 7.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Jeremiah 17:7

Blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD, and whose hope is the LORD.

 

Hope is confidence in God’s love. Hope is the expectation of a future with God.  Hope is the optimism you have in knowing that no matter what may come God will get you through it.  Hope is the anticipation of drawing closer to God. Hope is the assurance you have in knowing that with God all things are possible.  Hope is a blessing from God.

Happy Father’s Day

Verse of the Day:  Proverbs 20:7

The righteous man walks in his integrity; his children are blessed after him.

 

Fathers, you are responsible for teaching your children about the Lord.  Be a spiritual leader by living a life of integrity.
