Psalm 119 2-3 msg

feet

We are given directions for a reason; to show us the way
that will get us where we are going while avoiding unnecessary 
hazards and risks, roadblocks and detours on our journey.
God knows we need guidance and directions and has provided them.
If we think we know a better way and wander off on our own we might get lost
It is always best to follow His directions.

Do you follow directions or do you prefer to travel without a map?

Psalm 89:15 gw

forest-411491_640

Too often we don’t recognize blessings.
Praise is something we give to God, and
He blesses us with His light so we can walk with Him.
We give something little to the Lord and He gives something great to us.

Do you know you are blessed because you praise Him?

Luke 6:38 niv

filled

We will always have plenty when we give of what we have to others.

What do you have to give?
 Time, comfort, compassion, a hug…?

Psalm 29:11 niv

storm

Read Psalm 29.
 Think about the awesome power of the Lord.
He is powerful, majestic, the God of glory. 
We are His people, 
strong and blessed with peace.

Is there a storm raging in your life?
Do you know compared to God it is like a misty morning?

Blessings this day of grace,

Matthew 5:10 esv

sparrow

To be persecuted often means to be imprisoned or tortured for your beliefs, but not always.
Those who are harassed, teased, oppressed, or ill-treated in some way
because they are faithful and true to what they believe are being persecuted.

Those who stand firm and resolute in their beliefs without looking for vengeance or reprisal
make known to their persecutors that they have a higher calling.
They are children of God and the kingdom of heaven is theirs to claim.

Have you experienced persecution?
How do you respond when mistreated because of your faith?

Blessings this day of grace,
