You Are Not Alone

2 Timothy 4 17

 

Verse of the Day:  2 Timothy 4:17

But the Lord stood by me and gave me strength.

 

Doing the will of God can at times be lonely.  Not everyone will understand or support what you are doing.  That’s why it’s important to surround yourself with likeminded people. Even so, there may be times when you still feel alone and it may feel like everyone has deserted you. But, know that you are not alone the Lord, your God is with you. He is on your side and he will give you the strength to carry out his purpose.

Sin in Your Heart

Psalm 66 18.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 66:18

If I had cherished sin in my heart, the Lord would not have listened; but God has surely listened and has heard my voice in prayer.

 

We all fall short of the glory of God.  We are not perfect but what we do when we fail God makes all the difference. Put aside your pride and acknowledge your sin and turn from it. Don’t let sin come between you and God. Don’t let sin destroy your fellowship with Him. Humble yourself before the Lord and confess your sins, ask for forgiveness, and he will hear your prayers.
