Psalm 95:6-7 (NLT): “Come let us worship and bow down. Let us kneel before the Lord our maker, for He is our God. We are the people He watches over, the flock under His care.”
Our intent should be to worship God, for He is worthy to be praised. Today, take the time to bow before God - just because you love Him and are amazed by His love, provision and care over your life.
Galatians 6:2 (NLT): “Share each other’s burdens, and in this way obey the law of Christ.”
When a friend in Christ, is overcome by sin, you should gently and humbly help that person back onto the right path. Just be careful not to fall into the same temptation yourself. You can represent Jesus to someone by truly caring and being there whenever they are weak in spirit.
2 Corinthians 12:9 (NLT): “Each time he said, “My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness.” So now I am glad to boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ can work through me.”
Do not try to solve every problem from a natural perspective, but rather put your trust in the One who has the insight and the wisdom to work on your behalf. Today, rest in His peace; know that His grace is sufficient for you and me.
Colossians 3:1-4 (NLT): “Since you have been raised to new life with Christ, set your sights on the realities of heaven, where Christ sits in the place of honour at God’s right hand. Think about the things of heaven, not the things of earth. For you died to this life, and your real life is hidden with Christ in God. And when Christ, who is your life, is revealed to the whole world, you will share in all His glory.”
Set your sights on the things of Christ, meditate on them and talk about them. You are an ambassador of the Kingdom of Heaven and should represent that Kingdom in all that you do. When you finish the race strong, you will share in God’s glory. Do not get distracted by pondering on the cares and the chaos of this world that we live in. Rather, prayerfully take all of that to God and allow Him to work on your behalf.
Philippians 4:4 (NLT): “Always be full of Joy in the Lord. I say it again – rejoice!”
There is nothing that can lift your spirit and fill a room with hope and the Presence of God like JOY and laughter. Even if you are a person who always struggles to laugh and find that joy, ask Holy Spirit to fill you with joy and gladness. Pray this today: “Thank You Lord that You have given us the ability to find joy in and through You, and that joy can sustain us. Fill us afresh and give us peace beyond all understanding. Amen”
Ephesians 4:27 (Amplified): “Leave no (such) room or foothold for the devil (give no opportunity to him)”
The enemy is always out to corrupt our walk by getting us offended, stuck in old hurts, judgements and pride. However, we have the right & power to choose our emotions and reactions towards any given situation! “Lord, help me identify wrong feelings or attitudes in my life that the enemy could use to hurt relationships with people I need and Love. Amen.”
Habakkuk 1:5 (NLT): “Look around at the nations, look and be amazed! For I am doing something in your own day, something you wouldn’t believe even if someone told you about it.”
God is always working to fulfill His promise of providing us with the abundant life of His Kingdom. Look at the giants around you (those situations that are getting you down) and proclaim that God is doing a new thing. His ways are higher than ours. If we yield to Him and align our mind, will and emotions according to His Word, then He will make everything work together our good.
Isaiah 41:10 (NLT): “Don’t be afraid for I am with you. Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my victorious right hand.”
Fear is merely False Evidence Appearing Real. God created us to be wired for love. We get anxious about circumstances that seem out of our control and we forget His promise that He is always with us and He is our strength. “Thank you, Father that you are always with me; You guide and protect me. I choose to seek Your truth and find comfort under Your wings of Peace and Love. Amen.
Proverbs 4:23 (Amplified): “Keep and guard your heart with all vigilance and above all that you guard, for out of it flow the springs of life.”
Whatever resides in the heart eventually flows out onto the rest of our lives. What we say with our mouths reflects what we think and believe in our hearts. If we feed our hearts with the good things of the Word of God, we will reflect God’s glory. Today, focus on the good things that God says and is doing; let your heart be filled to overflow with pure goodness – straight from the heart of God.
