What we do in secret is far more important to God than what we do on the outside. Keep in mind that we may not be able to please everyone, but if we please our Father in Heaven at all times, we can expect favor and blessings to show up in places where we least expect it. Goodness & mercy will follow us wherever we will go.
“…and your Father who sees in secret shall reward you openly.” -Matthew 6:4
Are you scared or clueless about what the future holds? Maybe you have been waiting for God to make a move in your life; but the truth is, all along, He has always been at your door waiting for you to let His Word to come in your home and in your heart.
[ “Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with him, and he with Me.” -Revelation 3:20 ]
We all know that God wants us to trust Him. But most of the time, when trials come our way, we walk around with worries in our heart that steal our peace and joy.
Doubts will always arise when we listen to our feelings instead of God’s Word. If your faith feels weak today, God is reminding you that He is the kind of Father who never forgets the needs of His children
“And do not set your heart on what you will eat or drink, do not worry about it…Your Father knows that you need them. But seek first His kingdom and all these things will be given to you as well.” -Luke 12:29-31
Just as we don’t let anybody who knocks on our door come in and enter our homes, we should also not let the enemy barge in and fill our minds with things that displeases the Lord. God has given us the authority to control what enters our minds. Let’s be wise in guarding it, having complete awareness that our thoughts will greatly affect our lives.
“Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise.”-Philippians 4:8
Do you want to be detached from worry? Do you want be set free from the heaviness of catching up with the world? If your circumstances have been difficult lately, God is reminding you that contentment and true peace will never come in our life, unless we understand deeply who’s the “The True Source” of everything that we need.
[ “Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is–His good, pleasing and perfect will.” -Romans 12:2 ]
We all know that our salvation is a free gift from God. But one thing we must also remember is that “the blessing” of God comes through obedience. The Lord says, “If you are willing and obedient, you shall eat the good of the land…” It is our Father’s will for us to prosper, that’s why He is reminding us today that the sooner we choose to follow and obey His will, the faster we will experience and receive His great plan for us.
[ “See, today I am letting you choose a blessing or a curse. You will be blessed if you obey the commands of the Lord your God that I am giving you today.” -Deuteronomy 11:26-27 ]
Are there moments when you can’t seem to understand what’s happening in your life? Are you close to giving up? God wants to remind you today that He cares for you & that everything that is happening right now has a reason. The Word of the Lord is clear. God cares for His own children and there is nothing He won’t do for them. He is a good Father who wants His children to hear what’s in His heart and how much He cares for their needs.
[ “So each generation should set its hope anew on God, not forgetting his glorious miracles and obeying his commands.”- Psalm 78:7 ]
If you are tired, worried and desperately need a break, God can give you the rest that you need. Today, He wants you to hold on to His promise that, “He will set you apart from all other people to be His very own.”
[ “Of all the people on earth, the LORD your God has chosen you to be his own special treasure.” – Deuteronomy 7:6 ]
Stability is a spiritual blessing that God has already given us. Because through Him, we can do all things & nothing is impossible. Today, God is reminding us that, the “best weapon” when we are attacked is our “DECISION” to never give up.
[ “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 ]
God wants us to know that His Word is not just about knowledge, but also about trust and obedience. The foundation of a blessed life is not just hearing God’s word, but by applying it in every area of our lives. This is one of the marks of a true worshiper of God. He is reminding us today that through spending time with Him, we can learn how to love unselfishly and have wisdom in every decision that we will make.
[ “Therefore everyone who hears these words of Mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock.” -Matthew 7:24 ]
