He Is Our King

Wednesday, February 21st, 2018

TODAY’S VERSE
But though I have rescued you from your misery and distress, you have rejected your God today and have said, ‘No, we want a king instead!
I Samuel 10:19 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
How much do we really rely on God? How much do we really commune with Him and depend on Him for wisdom and direction? Think about it. We have pastors, radio preachers, counselors and bookstores full of books and magazines. That’s not counting conferences, colleges, Bible studies or Sunday School classes. With all this help, with all this representation of God, why would we ever need God at all? The people of God wanted a King. They wanted a physical representation of God, instead of God Himself. Now there is nothing wrong with having Pastors to teach and equip us. Participating in small groups or enjoying Bible Study is a needed thing. The point however, is this. In all our searching, in all our seeking for answers, for all the comfort we are looking for, let us not forget to seek God Himself.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, I am so sorry for putting other things above You. You are all my heart really needs. I come to You, my Lord and King, and ask that You would guide and direct me throughout this day.
AMEN

Power and Strength

Tuesday, February 20th, 2018

TODAY’S VERSE
God is awesome in his sanctuary. The God of Israel gives power and strength to his people. Praise be to God!
Psalm 68:35 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
There are a lot of things that we need to make it through this life. Sometimes it is hard to ascertain what exactly to ask God for. Today’s verse sets good guidelines to help us when we pray. First, God is awesome. We have every right to ask for His miraculous power to intervene in our situations. He is able to heal, change circumstances or to move in the hearts of people. We need to ask and expect God to be awesome on behalf of His people. And yet there is another side. Today’s verse also says that God gives power and strength to His people. Although we can ask God to show His love to others, hasn’t He commanded you and I to be His ambassadors of love? Paul wrote, “We are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.” And who knew this better than David? After all it was David who picked up the stone and aimed at Goliath but God directed the stone. David said to Goliath, “You come to me with sword, spear, and javelin, but I come to you in the name of the LORD of Heaven’s Armies.” God created you and I do be His ministers in this world and He gives us the strength and power to do it. What a magnificent plan, God with His power working with and through us to do His will in this world. No wonder David ended saying, “Praise be to God!”

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, I can’t live the life You want me to without Your power. Nor do I want to try. I come today and ask You to guide me, direct me, and fill me with Your power and strength. May You show Yourself strong through all I say and do. To You be all the Glory!
AMEN

Love and Good Works

Monday, February 19th, 2018

TODAY’S VERSE
Let us think of ways to motivate one another to acts of love and good works.
Hebrews 10:24 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
When you became a Christian, you became a follower of Christ. You became part of a world-wide fellowship of believers. This is more than a fraternity, it is a fellowship. But more than a fellowship, it is a mission. Our mission is to share the message of Christ to the world. It is also to love others and to become involved in doing good. Love and doing good? It sounds too simple and too humanistic. Instead, we want to preach and teach and tell others about the love of God. While teaching and preaching is crucial, we miss the point. It is not an either/or it is both. God has chosen some to teach, some to preach, but He has chosen us all to love. Why? Because our preaching and teaching will never be accepted by the world if it isn’t backed up with real living proof? And the proof that Christianity is real is in our actions, not our words. So, if we want to see others around us come to know Christ, we must tell them, but we must also love! Today think of ways to motivate one another to acts of love and good works.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, help me live for you. Help me tell others about your love. But also help me think of ways to motivate others around me to join me in performing acts of love and good works.
AMEN

Amazing Grace

Sunday, February 18th, 2018

TODAY’S VERSE
I was so foolish and ignorant—I must have seemed like a senseless animal to you. Yet I still belong to you; you hold my right hand.
You guide me with your counsel, leading me to a glorious destiny.
Psalms 73:22-24 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
How true is the first part of this passage? And yet, as true as the fact that we behave foolishly and ignorant before God, like senseless animals, so is the fact that nothing can separate us from His love. We are still His. Even in our vilest condition we belong to Him and He extends His hand toward us. This is love. This is God’s love. It is so vast, so great that we could never fully comprehend it. It would be easier to explain when the end of eternity is, than to fully understand the love God has for us. Yet Paul asks God to, “give us the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep His love is.” So, even though we are reminded over and over again how foolish we have been, don’t stop there. Also remember that you will always belong to Him and nothing can separate you from His love! He will continue to love you and guide you with His counsel. Praise be to God for His marvelous grace!

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear Father, how foolish and ignorant I have been before You. I have sinned over and over again. And yet, Your love for me and utter forgiveness has been unbelievable. I thank You for accepting me and continuing to guide and direct my paths.
AMEN

Trust

Thursday, February 15th, 2018

TODAY’S VERSE
Trust in the LORD with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take.
Proverbs 3:5-6 (NTL)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
Sometimes you just have to trust. You know what it’s like. You are sitting there and “bam” – the sky starts falling. You are caught off guard. Your head starts spinning and you feel sick to your stomach. Gasping for breath you start accessing your situation. For some, adrenalin starts to kick in and you hang on for the ride. For others you just go numb. Indecision, blocked from thinking, you just sit there. You too are on a ride, even if it doesn’t feel like you are going anywhere. And that is when you have to trust. Your thrown into an unwanted journey where you need your faith. It is a desperate time and you can’t depend on our own understanding. Instead, you must seek His will and God promises that He will show you which way to go. So today, hang on. God knows your situation. He knows and deeply cares. Come to Him. Quit trying to figure it out and trust. He is there. He will show you the way.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Lord, I surrender. I don’t know what to do. I don’t know which way to go. I will quit depending on my own understanding and will trust in You with all my heart. I need Your supernatural wisdom and guidance. Today I will seek Your will; please show me which way to go. In Jesus’ name.
AMEN

What Controls You?

Wednesday, February 14th, 2018

TODAY’S VERSE
Either way, Christ’s love controls us.
II Corinthians 5:14 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
We would like to think that we are free, that nothing controls us. And yet, it is not a question of whether or not we are controlled. It is what do we let control us? Influences, impulses, beliefs, assumptions, responsibilities, promises, obligations, emotions, medications, addictions, spiritual forces, desires, dreams, aspirations and a myriad of other things shape our behavior more than we would like to admit. However, we are not helpless. We are not a puppet. We do not have to be like James suggests, “unsettled as a wave of the sea that is blown and tossed by the wind.” Instead, we can come to Christ. We can choose to let His love guide and control us. We can allow the Holy Spirit to fill us and direct us each and every day. With the guidance of the Holy Spirit and the soul penetrating love of Christ influencing us, we will be able to live our life for Christ. Today, choose to live for Christ and let His deep, deep love for you permeate your thinking and actions. Then you can say with Paul, “Christ’s love controls me.”

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear Christ, fill me with Your love. Let it permeate my very being until I am controlled by it. Help me to love as You love and to live my life in a way that is pleasing to You.
AMEN
