He Hears Your Prayers

1 10-15 1.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:   Jeremiah 29:12

Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you.

 

How encouraging to know we serve a God who hears our prayers.  Through His love and mercy God promises that when we call on Him and pray to Him, He will listen.  Whatever the answer may be, we can be assured that God hears our prayers and know that He will answer them in his own time and way.

Knowing and Trusting God

1 10-12 1

 

Verse of the Day:   Psalm 9:10

And those who know your name put their trust in you, for you O Lord, have not forsaken those who seek you.

 

The only way to know God is to seek Him with all of your heart.  Spend time with Him in prayer, read the Holy Bible, really make an effort to understand who He is.   The more you seek God in faith, the more you will come to know Him, the more you know Him, the more you will trust Him.  When you experience God’s love, grace and mercy for yourself, you will come to completely trust in Him and realize that He will never abandon you.

The Ungrateful

1 10-6 1

 

Verse of the Day:   Luke 6:35

But love your enemies, do good to them, and lend to them without expecting to get anything back.  Then your reward will be great, and you will be sons of the Most High, because He is kind to the ungrateful and wicked.

 

God commands us to love our enemies, even the ungrateful.  For some this may be harder than others, but if we are grounded in God’s love and mercy, we can move past the human nature and into the spiritual characteristic of Christ.    Our heavenly Father has shown us great mercy and expects us to be kind to those who are ungrateful and wicked, not because they deserve it, but because we are striving to live a life that pleases Him.

God Is Good

Verse of the Day:   1 Chronicles 16:34

Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good; His love endures forever.

 

The Bible doesn’t say, “Give thanks to the Lord when you feel good or when things are going good”.  It says, “Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good”.  Giving thanks shouldn’t be based on how we feel, it should be based on who God is, and He is good. There is always something to be thankful for.

Forever Faithful

Verse of the Day:   Psalm 100:5

For the Lord is good and his love endures forever; his faithfulness continues through all generations.

 

He loves us and His love is forever not because of anything we have done or ever can do but because He is good.  We can always count on Him because He never changes, even when we are faithless, he remains faithful.  Man may fail you but my God never will.

 

Draw Near to God

1 9-22 1

 

Verse of the Day: James 4:8a

Draw near to God and He will draw near to you.

 

We all need God in our lives, but how do you “draw near to God”?  You draw near to him through prayer, praise and worship.  You need to take the first step by inviting him into your life and start to experience his goodness for yourself.

To Seek and To Save

1 9-21 1

 

Verse of the Day:  Luke 19:10

For the Son of Man came to seek and to save that which was lost.

 

God loved us so much he made a way for us to be saved.  Jesus came to this world to seek and save the lost, to offer us salvation.  He came to rescue us from a life of sin.  As Christians, we need to share this good news with the world while there is still time.
