We all know that nothing is permanent in this world. Sad to say, sometimes the one who “supposedly” love you the most will abuse your heart the most. Your heart maybe hurting today but God wants you to know that, there is happiness on the other side of goodbye. When God removes something from our lives, it’s not because He’s trying to take away something good. It’s because He’s trying to make room for something better.
“Now remain in My love, I have told you this so that My joy may be in you and that your joy may be complete.”-John 15:11
Joy produces strength. That’s why the enemy will do everything to steal it, because he knows that once we lose our joy – we lose our strength. If we want to have the kind of joy that stays no matter what happens, we need to make a conscious decision to focus each day on our personal relationship with our Lord Jesus Christ. His presence in our lives will be our never ending source of joy that no one can take away from us.
“The joy of the Lord is your strength.” – Nehemiah 8:10
Sometimes, we go through things in life that we don’t fully understand. Today, God wants to remind us that, where we are right now is part of where we are going. Every experience has a purpose. The enemy will tempt us to give up and question God’s love, but don’t listen to his lies. Instead of feeling down, declare good things in your life! In the end, you will see that all things will work out for your own good because of God’s great love for you.
“O Lord my God, Your plans for us are too numerous to list. You have no equal. If I tried to recite all your wonderful deeds, I would never come to the end of them.” -Psalm 40:5
With all the pressures in life, are you at a point right now where you’re ready to give up & can’t find the strength to continue? God is telling you right now, “Come to Me…I am the Door to everything that you need.” Today, open yourself up to God’s loving presence. Tell Him what you need, for He takes pleasure in hearing your prayers.
[ "In that day He will be your sure foundation, providing a rich store of salvation, wisdom, and knowledge. The fear of the Lord will be your treasure." Isaiah 33:6]
Are you facing some battles today? How often do you experience “quietness” in your life? In the hustle and bustle of life, we still need quiet moments to be alone with God because our victory is in Him.
["Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours." -Mark 11:24]
Is life wearing you out? Don’t let the enemy devour you with discouragement. God has already opened up a way for you to experience a peaceful life. Spend time with Him at the start of each day and see how marvelous His presence is. Now is the time for you to experience the matchless security that can only be found in your Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
[ “Surely You have granted him eternal blessings and and made him glad with the joy of Your presence.” -Psalm 21:6 ]
God used Noah to save His family from danger. He wants to do the same with you. That’s why if you want to build a better relationship with your family, you should start by building a relationship with God. He is reminding you today to start “building an ark” or “a room in your heart” for a deeper relationship with Him, then watch how everything else will fall into its proper place.
["But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you."-Matthew 6:33]
["Then God blessed Noah and his sons, saying to them, "Be fruitful and increase in number and fill the earth."-Genesis 9:1]
We live in dangerous times where our family needs constant prayers and guidance. Now, more than ever, parents should step up and fight for their families. God has anointed them as channels of blessings that will benefit their children. Their words and how they live will affect their children’s future.
[ "Be very careful, then, how you live —not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil. Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the Lord’s will is." -Ephesians 5:15-17 ]
[ "Direct your children onto the right path, and when they are older, they will not leave it." -Proverbs 22:6 ]
As Christians, we are called to go into the world and share the love of God into all the nations. Today, God is reminding us to always be courageous as we face all the battles of life. And He promised, that as we follow His will; we will never be alone. He will be with us, even to the very end of the age.
[ "Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the LORD your God goes with you; He will never leave you nor forsake you." - Deuteronomy 31:6 ]
Sometimes, trials and testings make us feel imprisoned in an ark with no other place to go. But just like Noah who received God’s sign of hope inside the ark through a dove, God will also send us the Holy Spirit to assure us that the flood of trials in our life is almost over.
[ No one will be able to stand up against you all the days of your life. As I was with Moses, so I will be with you; I will never leave you nor forsake you.-Joshua 1:5 ]
