Verse of the Day:  Philippians 3:10

And this, so that I may know Him [experientially, becoming more thoroughly acquainted with Him, understanding the remarkable wonders of His Person more completely]

There is a difference between knowing about someone and knowing someone.   All my life I knew who God was but I never knew what it was like to have a relationship with him until a few years ago.  When I began to seek God with all of my heart I started to experience him in a way I never knew was possible and now my life will never be the same again. You can have a relationship with Jesus too, you just need to seek him, he’s waiting for you to make the first move.

Proverbs 22:24-25

Verse of the Day:  Proverbs 22:24-25

Do not make friends with a hot-tempered person, do not associate with one easily angered, or you may learn their ways and get yourself ensnared.

 

It’s clear that our friendships can have an influence on us, either for good or bad.  It’s important to choose the people who are close to us wisely.  Choose Godly friends that will be a positive influence in your life instead of people who can’t control their anger with whom you may eventually find yourself in a bad situation.  A bad temper is contagious.

Verse of the Day:  Psalms 30:4

Sing the praises of the Lord, you his faithful people; praise his holy name.

 

You can worry or you can worship the Lord with all your heart.  Fear is natural, everyone has fear.  What is unnatural is when you let fear take control over you.  The answer to fear is prayer and worship.  Instead of focusing on fear and worrying you need to sing praises to the Lord, and praise him by thanking him for what he’s already done.

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 be supportive of what you are doing.  When you feel alone and it seems like everyone has deserted you, know that you are not alone.  The Lord is with you, he is on your side, and he will give you the strength to carry out his purpose for your life.
