Daily Peace and Comfort
No matter how many principles & lessons we try to learn, it is only by being honest & acknowledging our weaknesses that we can start over & improve our situation, slowly but surely. Evaluating the direction of our lives by starting at the “right place with God” is the BEST way for us to completely move forward and find security in this ever changing world that we live in.

As humans, we tend to look for people or things that will make us happy, only to discover that it cannot fully satisfy the longing of our soul. In the world, we may experience loneliness and discontent, but don’t let it bring you down. Fix your eyes on the Lord, for He is the only one who will never change and has the power to give you complete joy.
“Yes, joyful are those who live like this! Joyful indeed are those whose God is the Lord.”-Psalm 144:15
Perseverance turns adversity into advancement. God uses everything in a person’s life – especially the difficult challenges – to remake and transform them into the person He wants them to be. Everything that happens to us has a special purpose that’s why God wants us to be strong and never give up. He is reminding us today to keep our mind settled that He is a good God and that our future is safe with Him.
[ “Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up” -Galatians 6:9 ]
Acknowledging God as the “One True Source” of all our needs and the “Only Safe Refuge” when life is difficult, releases us from the bondage of worry and fear. As humans, we tend to focus on life’s complications and forget the simple instructions God has given, in order for us to live a worry-free life. This is His message for you right now: “Seek Me first, love others and trust in Me – and I will take care of whatever you need today.”
[ “But remember the Lord your God, for it is He who gives you the ability to produce wealth, and so confirms His covenant, which He swore to your forefathers, as it is today.” -Deuteronomy 8:18 ]
People are generally more happy when they find purpose & meaning in their lives, and part of living a meaningful life is being able to be a blessing to the people around them. If you have a problem today and you can’t seem to find a solution, God has one for you… Help others. By using your special gifts to help others, you will experience God’s miraculous answer to your need. Always remember that God’s principles always work if we are bold enough to apply it and if we do not give up easily.

The enemy will always try to bring you down and hurt you, but always remember this… because of what Jesus has done on the cross and because of His precious blood, you have nothing to fear! All trials and testings are just stepping stones to the victory that awaits you if you will never give up. In quiet confidence, let the Lord be your strength today.
[ “I have told you all this so that you may have peace in Me. Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world.” -John 16:33 ]
The Bible reminds us to always guard our thoughts, because our thoughts influence our attitude. Our thoughts are capable of drawing people closer or away from us because people can sense sincerity or hypocrisy.
God is reminding us today that if we want to have “good success” in our lives, we must learn how to have an attitude just like Jesus, who never entertained negative thoughts and always desired the best for other people.
[ “As a man thinks in his heart, so is he…” -Proverbs 23:7 ]
All men experience failure. But those who put their trust in the Lord will receive renewed strength to get up and never give up. Change is essential for growth. God wants to remind us today that our lowest point could be our starting point if we allow Jesus to take over. You may be in a difficult situation right now but always remember that you have a God who can change your “tests” into “testimonies”.
[ “The Lord upholds all those who fall and lifts up all who are bowed down.” – Psalm 145:14 ]
