Intercede

1 luke

 

Verse of the Day:  Luke 5:20

And when he saw their faith, he said “Man your sins are forgiven you.”

 

If you read the story of the man who was paralyzed and whose friends lifted him to the roof and lowered him down so Jesus could heal him, you’ll see that the man wasn’t healed because of his own faith, but because of the faith of his friends.

You may know someone who is going through something so difficult it is beginning to weaken their faith in God.  You might not know what you can do to help.  That’s where your faith comes in to play.  You need to be the bridge to God by praying and interceding for your family and friends.

 

Confess

1john 1 9

1 John 1:9

Verse of the Day:   1 John 1:9

 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.

 

Unconfessed sin can be a stumbling block that keeps us from getting closer to God.  The Bible says, The Lord is far from the wicked but he hears the prayers of the righteous. (Proverbs 15:29)   When you pray, confess your sins to God.  Because he is merciful, he will forgive you and cleanse you from the sin and guilt so your fellowship with him may be restored.

An Everlasting Love

1Jeremiah31 3

Jeremiah 31:3

Verse of the Day:  Jeremiah 31:3

The Lord appeared to us in the past, saying: “I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with unfailing kindness.

 

God’s love for us was established since the beginning of time.  It is confirmed for us daily as he forgives, protects, provides, heals, and demonstrates his continued grace, mercy and power in our lives.  God’s magnificent love is like himself sovereign, unchangeable, and everlasting.

Make sure you take care of your body, but don’t forget to also take care of your soul, good health starts from the inside.  Do things that make you smile and bring you joy.  Doing volunteer work not only helps others, it actually makes you feel happy too.  Forgive, let go of anger and hurt so you can move forward.  Most importantly, spend time with God.

Happy Mother’s Day

Exodus 20 12

Exodus 20:12

Verse of the Day:  Exodus 20:12

 

Honor your father and your mother, so that you may live long in the land the Lord your God is giving you.

 

If you are blessed to still have your mother in your life honor her as the Lord commands.  Be devoted and respectful, affectionate and loving for she won’t always be here.  If there are grievances between you ask God to help you forgive each other.  If you are blessed to be a mother pray that you would be a good example for your children and that they would honor you in the same way you have honored your own mother.

You, Lord, are forgiving and good, abounding in love to all who call to you.

 

I’m so grateful that I serve a forgiving God.  If not for his forgiveness, grace, and mercy where would I be?  He is ready to forgive us, he won’t hold back, all we have to do is come to him with a sincere heart and ask to be forgiven through faith.
