Stand Up for Jesus!     

Matthew 10 32

 

Verse of the Day:  Matthew 10:32

Therefore, everyone who acknowledges me before people, I also will acknowledge before my Father who is in heaven.

 

Everyone is standing up for what they believe in.  They’re rallying and marching for political parties, rights, you name it there’s a march for it.  It’s time we have the courage and confidence to stand up for what we believe in, Jesus Christ!  He is the way, the truth and the life!

Teaching Children About God

Proverbs 22 6

 

Verse of the Day:  Proverbs 22:6

Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.

 

One of the most important things we can ever teach children is how much God loves them.   Knowing they are loved by God Himself will give them confidence to shine.  Let’s be examples for the children in our lives and teach them what it is to know and love God and what it is to be loved by Him.

Confidence

Proverbs 31 25

 

Verse of the Day:  Proverbs 31:25

Strength and honor are her clothing; she is confident about the future.

 

A virtuous woman of God carries herself with strength and honor in her attitude and her behavior.  She is in control of her actions and does everything with purpose and uprightness.  She is respected for more than her outward appearance, she is respected for her godliness and holiness.  She is confident because she knows God is in control of her future.

Fruit of Peace

Isaiah 32 17

 

Verse of the Day:  Isaiah 32:17

The fruit of that righteousness will be peace; its effect will be quietness and confidence forever.

 

God’s presence in our lives changes everything.  When we submit to God’s will, he gives us a calmness, an inner peace that nothing on the outside can take away.  We’ll have a quiet confidence that no matter what happens we know God is in control and we know that God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. (Romans 8:28)

He Hears You

1 John 5 14

 

Verse of the Day:  1 John 5:14

This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us.

 

Pray with the full confidence that God hears you, He is faithful and He is a loving God.  God hears all your prayers and He answers all your prayers.  When you ask God for something, the answer will be yes, no or wait. The key words here are “according to His will”.  Just because you pray and ask God for something does not mean that it is His will for you.  You must always pray “according to his will” and ask that His will be done, not yours, for He alone knows His plans for you. No matter what the answer is, know that He has heard your prayer.

God Chose You

1 1-11-18 1 Thessalonians 1 4.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  1 Thessalonians 1:4

We know dear brothers and sisters, that God loves you and has chosen you to be His own people.

 

Live with confidence and walk with your head held high knowing that God loves you and has chosen you to be His own people.  You belong to the Father because the Father chose you.  How wonderful is that? To know that God Himself chose you should give you the faith you need to follow Jesus wholeheartedly.

God Isn’t Finished with You Yet

1 11-13 1 Philippians 1 6

 

Verse of the Day:  Philippians 1:6

being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.

 

Have you ever felt like it was taking way too long for God to change you? You might even have wished you could rush God into changing you over night.  We all do, but it doesn’t happen that way. You need to be confident that in His way and in His timing he is changing you. We know this because He always finishes what He starts, so when you feel like you’re not changing fast enough, have faith and trust that God is still working on you.
