He Hears You

1 psalms 34 15

 

Verse of the Day:  Psalms 34:15

The eyes of the Lord are on the righteous, and his ears are attentive to their cry

 

As believers in Jesus Christ we have been made righteous through him and not by our own doing.  We have been adopted into the family of God the Father.  Because of his grace and love for us he watches over us and protects us, and when we cry out to him, he hears us.

For His Purpose

Romans 6:13

Verse of the Day:   Romans 6:13

Do not offer any part of yourself to sin as an instrument of wickedness, but rather offer yourselves to God as those who have been brought from death to life; and offer every part of yourself to him as an instrument of righteousness.

 

You have a new identity in Christ. You are no longer a slave to sin and because you’ve been set free from sin you can offer yourself to God so he can use you for his purpose.  Devote yourself to God and to his service with all your heart.

Verse of the Day:   2 Timothy 3:16

All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness

 

Reading the Bible as part of your prayer may lead to enlightenment.  God speaks to us in many ways including his written Word.   God may open your eyes to something new when a passage you’ve read before suddenly becomes clear and impacts you like never before.

Confess

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.
