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.
but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.
As 2017 comes to a close we can thank God for seeing us through another year. Though we may have had struggles we made it through them with the help of the Lord. The new year, 2018 will soon be here and it is a time for new beginnings. Trust in the Lord to renew your strength and refresh your spirit, and remember you are more than conquerors through God who loves you.
You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.
When you seek the Lord with a sincere heart you will find Him. God hears your prayers and knows yours heart. God promises that if you humble yourself, pray, seek His face, and turn from your wicked ways He will hear you. God loves you and wants to have a personal relationship with you but it’s up to you to seek Him.
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
God loved each one of us so much He gave the greatest gift ever, His only Son, Jesus Christ. God gave us His Son, and the Son gave His life for us. This was all part of the plan of salvation so we could receive forgiveness of sins and the gift of eternal life. Because of God’s grace and mercy, the gift of salvation is available to all through Christ.
So if you sinful people know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give good gifts to those who ask him. (NLT)
Doesn’t it make you feel wonderful to know you have given your children what they’ve asked for on their Christmas list? Now, think about how much more your heavenly Father also wants to give you good gifts. God loves you and it makes Him happy to bless you with the desires of your heart. God already knows what you need before you ask, if you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer.
Praise the LORD. Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever.
God is good all the time and all the time God is good. I woke up this morning, but not everyone did, so I am grateful for another day of life. No matter what is going on in your life there is always something to be thankful for. I’m thankful for God’s love and mercy. I’m thankful He never gave up on me even when I didn’t deserve another chance. Life is a precious gift from God and I’m going to be the best me I can be and live my life for Jesus.
I served the Lord with great humility and with tears and in the midst of severe testing (by the plots of my Jewish opponents).
There are times when we will go through something so difficult we cannot see the light of day through our tears and our faith is being severely tested. You might even feel like giving up on God but that’s when you need Him most. Prayer is the most powerful weapon you have. Cry out to God, He hears you and He loves you. Don’t give up instead give it all to God.
