Psalm 149:4 niv

Standard

3flowers

We may often think of the LORD only as a stern solemn God
and Judge who rebukes with mighty discipline those who are rebellious.
But He is also our Father, and like all fathers everywhere, He enjoys His children.

Have you thought of God as having a sense of humor and enjoying a hearty laugh?
Why or why not?

Zechariah 4:10 nlt

Věžnice,_small_chapel

Just as the Lord rejoiced to see the rebuilding of the Temple begin,
He is delighted to see us begin our journey, fresh and new everyday.

Do you feel like your small steps do not merit celebration?
Why would you depreciate something that God rejoices to see?

Psalm 62:8 niv

Standard

pour

There is nothing we can tell God that He doesn’t already know.
Yet, we are to pour out our hearts to Him.
Not just when we are in trouble, or troubled, but all the time.
We can be confident that He is always a safe trustworthy place. 
 Always a place of comfort and peace.

Have you trusted someone and been betrayed, making it difficult to trust even God?
Will you let God be your sanctuary, your comfort, and place of healing?

Blessings this day of grace,

Psalm 119:30 niv

unterberg-345560_640Being faithful and having a heart devoted to Jesus is a choice. 
Each of us must make up our own mind which way to go.   
It is a choice no one can make for us.

What path have you chosen?   
What is your heart set on?

Blessings this day of grace,

Romans 16:20 msg

Standard

bovist-184502_640We may become discouraged, resentful, or embittered
 because of the injustice, inequity, and wickedness around us
while we are trying our best to live good lives following Jesus.
Be encouraged, Satan’s days are numbered.
The day is coming when he will be crushed under the Lord’s feet
and that day is not far off.

Today, will you look beyond what you see around you and look
to the Lord’s promises and praise Him for His faithfulness?

Blessings this day of grace,
