Daily Peace and Comfort
The Holy Spirit is the one who gives us peace and hope. It is when we are filled with the fire of God’s Spirit that people notice there is something different about us. He empowers us to reach and accomplish things that go beyond our limitations. When God calls us to do something, He equips us through the power of the Holy Spirit.
“This is why I remind you to fan into flames the spiritual gift God gave you when I laid my hands on you.” -2 Timothy 1:6
God constantly reminds us that even if so many things cause us trouble & pain, and even if we mess up countless of times, His love for us remains the same. God’s love is eternal. Unchanging. Unconditional.
If you feel alone in the battles you are facing today, God is reminding you that He is never away. He has a great plan for your life and the best way to start over is to start believing that you are deeply LOVED by God more than you can ever imagine.
[ “For the LORD your God is living among you. He is a mighty Savior. He will take delight in you with gladness.
With his love, he will calm all your fears. He will rejoice over you."-Zep 3:17 ]
One sure sign that our plan is bound to fail, is when we begin to think that “we can handle things on our own”. When we start making plans for ourselves & our loved ones without considering God’s will for us, that’s when trouble starts creeping in.
The cure for the heaviness we feel today is surrender – full and wholehearted surrender to our God who owns everything. Once we acknowledge Him & accept His perfect plan for us, that’s the time we can be completely rested in the assurance that everything will work together for our own good. God’s plan will always prevail.
[ “Commit everything you do to the LORD. Trust Him, and He will help you.” - Psalm 37:5 ]
Has someone hurt you? The Lord wants to heal you right now. The Bible says that God is close to the brokenhearted. He wants to take away the heaviness that is weighing you down. But you must first surrender it to Him. Why? Because bitterness will only cause you more harm than good, it will multiply the pain that is already in your heart. It will make you an unhappy person. Don’t let that happen to you.
If you’re already tired & looking for a way out, start giving thanks & see what God will do. He is just. Trust Him.
[ “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”
John 16:33 ]
When you keep on doing the right things, promotion is guaranteed. Nobody can stop it. So don’t feel weary in doing small acts of obedience and integrity in your workplace. Continue to do good, even when nobody is looking. Always remember that Jesus produces great miracles when His people trust and obey His instructions.
“And your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly.” -Matthew 6:4
God will use people to bless us. No matter what our need is today, He is reminding us that He already gave us the principle on how to receive from Him. Jesus said, “do to others as you would have them do to you.” Do you need mercy? Show mercy. You need love? Give love. Do you need forgiveness? Help in time of trouble? Do it to other people and see what God will do for you. Time and again we are reminded to not grow weary in doing good. Why? Because there is indeed a harvest if we will never give up.
[ "So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets." -Matthew 7:12 ]
Are you tired of failing all the time? Do you want to experience lasting change & true success? Well, it’s about time to make an evaluation of your life. Are you a good steward of the blessings God has given you?
This message is a good reminder to all of us that true joy & lasting success comes only when learn to humble ourselves before God, choose to be disciplined and consider God’s Word in every decision we will make.
[ “If you are willing and obedient, you shall eat the good of the land." - Isaiah 1:19 ]
Never give up because God has never gave up on you. Don’t condemn yourself every time you make a mistake because you have a God who believes in you more than anyone else.
“The God of our fathers has chosen you that you should know His will.”(Acts 22:14)
Do you need strength in these times of fear and desperation? God is continuously providing ways how we can fight the things that gives us fear. Today, God is reminding us to just trust & believe that nothing is beyond the reach of HIS love & compassion.
[ "So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand." Isaiah 41:10 ]
Knowing God’s love for us is a great privilege. When we take the time to remember what Christ has done for us, our eyes will be opened to what we already have rather than what we thought we had lost. God wants us to start focusing on His promises. Every time you feel sad, alone, abandoned or fearful, remember that there is nothing Jesus won’t do for you
[ "For great is Your love, higher than the heavens; Your faithfulness reaches to the skies." -Psalm 108:4 ]
Develop the habit of expecting good things to come your way and see what God can do in your life. Start believing things are going to change for the better, not because you deserve it, but simply because God loves you so much.
“The LORD is gracious and righteous; our God is full of compassion. The LORD protects the unwary; when I was brought low, He saved me.”-Psalm 116:5-6
