Today’s Verse for 02/28/2013

You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them [those who deny that Jesus is from God and who have the spirit of the world], because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world. — 1 John 4:4


The world can often be a hostile place for believers. God wants his spiritual children to know, however, that they are not alone. He lives in us through his Spirit. We can be assured, therefore, that no matter what spirit someone else may have, the Holy Spirit of God is greater, more powerful, and more glorious. The victory is ours because God’s presence in us is greater than any force that we will ever face. We have our victory assured over all forces, powers, spirits, or opponents.


Dear Father, please give me the confidence, boldness, and conviction of your promises. I want to live boldly for your glory and according to your will. Thank you for empowering me to this victorious living by your Spirit who lives within me. To you belong all glory, majesty, and praise. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

Honoring God/Do we?


How do we honor God?

Do we honor God?

I will put a video at the end that will bless you lots.

Matthew 15:8

“‘These people honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me.
Where is our heart?
Do we focus on things of the world or do we focus on God and honor Him?
It’s so hard to do at times because as people we tend to focus on things of the world and not on the things of heaven.

1 Corinthians 10:31 ESV

So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.

It’s all about Him, His love for us, what he did on the cross for us.

Honor Him for He is gracious and merciful.

Deuteronomy 6:5 ESV

You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might.

The pharisee’s in the Bible did honor God with their hearts they did with their mouths.

Honor Him with our hearts, love Him with all our hearts.

Matthew 28:18-20 ESV

And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”

I hope your blessed by this inspiration and will honor God with our hearts and not our lips.

Today’s Verse for 02/27/2013


For I am the LORD, your God, who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear; I will help you. — Isaiah 41:13


Life crashes in and we wish we could be children again and have someone to take care of us and protect us. Into our confused and chaotic world, God’s promise comes to us once again. Like a loving parent with a frightened child, God reaches out and takes hold of our hand and comforts us with his precious words: “Don’t be afraid. I’m here with you. I will help.” Even when he seems distant, the echo of this thought can remind us that we are never alone or forgotten (cf. Heb. 13:5-6).


Abba Father, whose presence and help are always near, please help me have faith that you are there. I confess that at certain points in my life, you have seemed distant and I have felt alone. Please remind me through your Spirit of your nearness and your care. In my moments of struggle and doubt, please make your presence known. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.

Today’s Verse for 02/26/2013


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. All who rage against you will surely be ashamed and disgraced; those who oppose you will be as nothing and perish. — Isaiah 41:10-11


Not only does God’s blessing rest on us, his presence goes with us. We cannot ever be in a place where he is not with us (see Psalm 139). His presence and power will uphold us and strengthen us. No matter what may happen in our physical bodies or our physical worlds, God has given us the ultimate triumph over every enemy and all wickedness in Jesus. Even Jesus’ doubters and enemies will worship our Lord and kneel at his feet and will recognize that our faith is not only appropriate, but it is victorious (cf. 1 Thess. 1).


Thank you, dear Father! You are not only the God of the heavens, but you are also my God. You know me and care about me. You hear my cries for help and mercy. You share my struggles and burdens. Please deliver me from every enemy, both physical and spiritual, and give me boldness to stand firm in my faith in you. In Jesus’ name I ask this. Amen.

Today’s Verse for 02/24/2013

The LORD will fulfill [his purpose] for me; your love, O LORD, endures forever — do not abandon the works of your hands. — Psalm 138:8


First there is conviction: the LORD will finish his work in us! (cf. Phili. 1:6). Second, there is declaration: the LORDS love endures and doesn’t fail (cf. 1 Cor. 13:8). Finally, there is supplication: O Lord, don’t ! forget me, your creation (cf. Ps. 139:13-16). What beautiful balance for our walk with the Lord.


Heavenly Father and LORD of all things, I am confident that you will accomplish your will and purpose in me. Seeing how you loved and worked through the centuries with the everyday people I find in Scripture, I know your love will last long after I am gone from this place. However, dear LORD, I do face some struggles and difficulties and I ask you to please intervene with your grace and power in my life. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
