Rely on God’s Love  

1 John 4 16

 

Verse of the Day:   1 John 4:16

And so we know and rely on the love God has for us.  God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them.

 

If your first thought of the day is “God loves me” it will change the way you react to things that happen throughout your day.  No matter what happens tell yourself, “It’s going to be okay, God loves me”.  You can rely on God’s love for you and His strength will get you through the most difficult days if only you would trust in His love for you.

Dependent on God

Isaiah 40 29

 

Verse of the Day:  Isaiah 40:29

He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak.

 

Today’s society teaches that independence is the goal but what we need most is to be dependent on the Lord.  If we learn to trust and hope in God, He will give us strength when we’re weary, power when we’re weak and he’ll supply all your needs. You can depend on God, His power, promises and provisions.

You Are Not Alone

2 Timothy 4 17

 

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 support what you are doing.  That’s why it’s important to surround yourself with likeminded people. Even so, there may be times when you still feel alone and it may feel like everyone has deserted you. But, know that you are not alone the Lord, your God is with you. He is on your side and he will give you the strength to carry out his purpose.

Confidence

Proverbs 31 25

 

Verse of the Day:  Proverbs 31:25

Strength and honor are her clothing; she is confident about the future.

 

A virtuous woman of God carries herself with strength and honor in her attitude and her behavior.  She is in control of her actions and does everything with purpose and uprightness.  She is respected for more than her outward appearance, she is respected for her godliness and holiness.  She is confident because she knows God is in control of her future.

Pray for Others

Ephesians 3 16-18.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:        Ephesians 3:16-18

I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ.

 

Like Paul prayed for the believers in Ephesus, we need to pray for our friends and family, our enemies, and the world.  We need to pray that they would invite Jesus into their lives so they may experience His infinite love first hand and have a personal relationship with Him.  We also need to pray that they would come to truly know Him, His grace, glory and how much He really loves them.

Strength Renewed

1 12-29 1 Isaiah 40 31

 

Verse of the Day:  Isaiah 40:31

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.

10 Days of Thanksgiving – Day 2 Thankful for Wonderful Memories

1 11-15 1 Philippians 1 3

 

Verse of the Day:  Philippians 1:3

I thank my God every time I remember you.

 

Paul wrote this in a letter after he left Philippi where he had gone through some very difficult times, yet he chose not to focus on the things that had caused him pain. We ought to be like Paul and stay focused on the positive things in our lives and appreciate the great memories we have.  I thank God for giving me strength to get through difficult times and I am thankful for the great memories I have of the wonderful people God placed in my life.
