We serve the most high God and the whole universe is in His hands. No enemy is powerful enough to keep you away from His mercy and love. Great is His plan for your life. That’s why it’s so important that you get to know Him in a deeper way. If you get in agreement with Him, He will not only bring you through the trouble, He will bring you out better off than you ever been before.
The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases. His mercies never come to an end. They are new every morning. Great is your faithfulness. “The LORD is my portion,” says my soul, “therefore I will hope in him.” – Lamentations 3:22-24
Sometimes, God uses certain verses in the Bible to give us the comfort and direction that we need. Maybe a specific Word has touched your heart today, giving you God’s personal instruction that is waiting for your action. Listen to His voice and receive! The favor is already prepared for you! Always remember that one truth from God’s Word that you will trust and obey is worth more than the biggest favor any person in this world can give you.
[ "In the time of my favor I heard you, and in the day of salvation I helped you. I tell you, now is the time of God’s favor, now is the day of salvation." -2 Corinthians 6:2 ]
Do you need inner strength today? Just like the Apostle Peter, all of us have weaknesses in different areas of our lives. But the secret to overcoming those weaknesses is in knowing who Jesus is and what He wants to do in our lives. The first step is to “come to Him” with all of our hearts. Once we do that, then we will discover the strength that we never knew we already have within us.
[ Then Jesus said, "Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest." -Matthew 11:28 ]
When we go through difficulties in life and see other people prosper, we sometimes ask, “God, do you really care about me? Do you still notice me, Lord?”
The Bible declares that God does not show favoritism. He gives everyone an equal opportunity to be blessed by Him. You still have that opportunity. So instead of focusing on how bad you feel today, stir your mind up, trust in His words and promises. Declare His goodness and your desire to follow His will no matter what.
“He is the Rock. His deeds are perfect. Everything He does is just and fair. He is a faithful God who does no wrong, how just and upright He is!”-Deuteronomy 32:4
When the things we hope for doesn’t happen and when we are in great pain, the enemy will always tell us that the easy way out is to just give up. But God is reminding us to do the opposite; to still hang on and not lose hope. Because on the other side of every setback is an opportunity. He wants us to remember that the difficulties we face today is not there to defeat us… they are there to increase us.
[ "Blessed is the man who perseveres under trial, because when he has stood the test, he will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love Him." - James 1:12 ]
The key how to receive from God is this, “just simply ask and don’t complain.” There’s nothing God loves more than keeping promises, answering prayers, performing miracles and fulfilling dreams. That’s who He is. That’s what He does. Always remember that there is nothing God cannot do, and He is a Father who loves to hear from His children. Come to Him with joy and gladness, and rest in the comfort of His loving embrace.
["And this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us."-1 John 5:14 ]
[ "For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened."-Matthew 7:8 ]
It always feels great to be “chosen”. Whether it be in a love relationship, in work or friendship. But nothing compares with the joy in knowing that God has chosen us long before we were born, to be in a relationship with Him and be a part of His great plan. If you feel unloved and unwanted today, God wants to remind you that you were in His heart and mind from the very beginning. The plans He has for you is great beyond measure.
“Even before He made the world, God loved us and chose us in Christ to be holy and without fault in his eyes. God decided in advance to adopt us into His own family by bringing us to Himself through Jesus Christ.”-Ephesians 1:4-5
What we think about matters a lot. That’s why when God asks us to redirect our minds, He is not trying to control us, but instead, He wants to save us from heartache and pain. He wants to protect us and keep us on the best path. Believe today that as you choose to think about things that pleases Him, He will show you His incredible grace and favor.
“For God has not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.”-2 Timothy 1:7
No matter who you are and what you do, you cannot please everyone all the time. Sometimes God allows difficult people in our lives to help us mature in our spiritual journey. You may not be able to stop another person’s actions, but you can stop the effect it has on you by remembering who you are in Christ and what Jesus asks you to do.
“Never pay back evil with more evil. Do things in such a way that everyone can see you are honorable. Do all that you can to live in peace with everyone.” -Romans 12:17-18
Nothing in this world can ever stop the blessings and full life God has planned for us. If you are feeling down today, our Father in heaven is reminding you that you can accomplish anything if you have Him on your side and if you consistently communicate with Him. Are you confused right now? Spend time with Him. He has a special message for you.
[ "And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons,neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love." - Romans 8:38-39 ]
