AUGUST 17

Today’s Scripture

            “They demonstrate that God’s law is written in their hearts…”  (Romans 2:15, NLT)

Written on Your Heart

            In the Old Testament, God’s commands were written on stone tablets and kept in the tabernacle. Today, when we accept Jesus as our personal Lord and Savior, we become His temple. He lives in us and engraves His promises and commands on our hearts.

            How do we know? This verse goes on to say that it’s because your conscience, or inner man, has a more powerful knowing of what is right and what is wrong. It becomes more clear what you should and shouldn’t do. Because you are drawn to follow the Word of God, you know that the Spirit of God is on the inside of you, guiding and directing you. Every time you follow His leading, your ability to hear and know Him is strengthened. However, if you choose to bypass that prompting on the inside, your heart can become hardened which will affect your ability to hear Him in the future.

            Make the decision today to follow that inner leading of the Spirit. He always has your best interest at heart. He wants you to stay close to Him. He wants you to follow Him which is why His promises are written on your heart!

A Prayer for Today

            “Father, thank You for making Your home in me. I acknowledge that I am Your temple! Help me to clearly follow Your leading all the days of my life that I may honor You in all I do. In Jesus’ name. Amen.”

By Joel & Victoria Osteen

AUGUST 16

Today’s Scripture

            “Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father…”  (James 1:17, NKJV)

He Gives Good Gifts

            God is a good God, and He has good gifts for His children! He wants to bless you with provision and supply all of your needs according to His riches in glory. He wants to pour out His abundant favor on you and cause everything you touch to prosper. He wants to bless you with spiritual gifts and make you strong in your inner man. He wants you to enjoy your job and be proud of your work each day. These are all gifts from God.

            Every good gift from God is meant to draw us closer to Him. He is good and faithful, and He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him. Seek Him today and experience the life of blessing He has in store for you!

A Prayer for Today

            “Father, thank You for Your good and perfect gifts. I open my heart to You and ask that You help me see Your goodness. Draw me to You and fill me with Your peace and joy as I follow You all the days of my life. In Jesus’ name. Amen.”

By Joel & Victoria Osteen

AUGUST 15

Today’s Scripture

            “Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called when you made your good confession in the presence of many witnesses.”  (1 Timothy 6:12, NIV)

Seeing the Dream Come to Pass

            One of the keys to your dreams coming to pass is to see them coming to pass in your mind’s eye first!

            One of the greatest baseball players of our time told about how that all through the day he envisions himself hitting the ball. Before he gets up to the plate, he visualizes getting on base. He has a picture in his mind of himself succeeding. It’s gotten deep down on the inside of him and now he’s moving toward it.

            Of course, it takes more than just visualization to see our dreams come to pass. It takes obedience; it takes prayer, and it has to be a part of God’s plan for our lives. But if you’ll keep the right pictures in your imagination, seeing yourself rising higher, seeing yourself healthy and whole, that vision is going to get deep down on the inside and set the course for your life! When your mind is in agreement with God’s Word, it will help guide you toward your destiny!

A Prayer for Today

            “Father, today I submit my dreams, desires and thoughts to You. Use my imagination for Your purposes. Help me to envision the dreams You’ve placed within me coming to pass. Let me bring You glory in everything I do. In Jesus’ name. Amen.”

AUGUST 14

Today’s Scripture

            “And will not God bring about justice for his chosen ones, who cry out to him day and night?…”  (Luke 18:7, NIV)

He Brings Justice

            Have you been crying out to the Lord for something? Maybe there’s a situation in your life that’s been overwhelming, and you feel like you’ve done everything you know to do but can’t see a way through. Be encouraged today because we serve a God of justice! He is faithful to His Word, and He will always be faithful to you.

            Not only is He a God of justice, He is your vindicator. One thing we have to remember is that our battle is not with the person who may have wronged us. Scripture says that the enemy of our souls, the accuser of the brethren, is our ultimate enemy. Know today that God already has a plan; He already knows the future, and He will bring about justice! Before eternity is through, He will right the wrongs that have been done to you.

            Your part is to release the situation into His capable hands. You don’t have to straighten everybody out or right the wrongs in your life; that’s God’s job. Trust Him with your future because the God of justice is working things out on your behalf!

A Prayer for Today

            “Father God, today I release every care, every concern, every situation that is beyond my control. I trust that You are working things out for my good, and You are bringing justice to me. Thank You for Your goodness and faithfulness in my life. In Jesus’ name. Amen.”

AUGUST 13

Today’s Scripture

            “We have different gifts, according to the grace given to each of us…”  (Romans 12:6, NIV)

Gifts by Grace

            God has given each of us gifts, and He’s given us grace, the supernatural power to operate in those gifts. In other words, if God has called you to do something, He has equipped you by His grace.

            Scripture says that His yoke is easy and His burden is light. That means when we are doing what we are called to do, when we are operating in our gift, there will be an “easiness” about it. That doesn’t mean there won’t be any opposition. It doesn’t mean there won’t be obstacles or that it won’t take effort on your part. But what it does mean is that you will have a supernatural empowerment to do it. It will just come naturally and flow out of you.

            If you are doing something that always seems hard, always seems heavy and drains the energy out of you, you might want to spend some time in prayer before God and see if that’s really what He has for you. Just because it’s a “good” thing doesn’t mean it’s a “God” thing. But when it is God, you’ll know it. You’ll feel His supernatural grace empowering you and refreshing you every step of the way.

 Prayer for Today

            “Father God, thank You for empowering me to live by Your grace. Help me to discern what You have for me and let go of anything that isn’t Your best for my life. I love You and honor You in all that I do. In Jesus’ name. Amen.”

AUGUST 10

Today’s Scripture

            “But he sad to me, ‘My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness’…”  (2 Corinthians 12:9, NIV)

Sufficient Grace

            Everyone has days when they feel weak or times when they feel overwhelmed. But God has given us His grace to carry us through these difficult times and empower us to move forward in victory.

            Scripture says God’s grace is sufficient. The word sufficient simply means competent, enough or qualified. That means you always have whatever you need by His grace. You will never face anything that God’s grace cannot empower you to move through. We serve a God who is more than enough, and His grace is more than enough, too! Anytime you feel weak, remember, when you rely on His grace, that is when you are at your strongest. When you feel like you can’t go on, that’s when He will carry you by His grace.

            Today, remember, no matter what you may be facing, you’re not facing it alone. You are not without hope, you are not without resources, and you are not without answers because His grace is sufficient! His grace is all you need to be equipped to move forward into His victory.

A Prayer for Today

            “Father, thank You for Your sufficient grace. Thank You for empowering me and equipping me no matter what I may be facing. Today, I lift my eyes to You for You are my help. I receive Your grace for everything I need. In Jesus’ name. Amen.”

AUGUST 9

Today’s Scripture

            “Keep this Book of the Law always on your lips; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful.”  (Joshua 1:8, NIV)

Use the Gift

            Have you ever received a gift card that you stored in a special place for so long that you forgot you had it? Most of them have an expiration date, and if you don’t use it, you will surely lose it! The same is true with the Word of God. No, the Word doesn’t ever expire, but we have to take action and use His Word in order to receive His promises. Just like you exchange your gift card for the things you need at the store, His Word gives you the power to receive every promise He has for you.

            As today’s verse tells us, when you declare His Word and keep your heart and mind open to Him, you are using the gift. You are opening the door for Him to move in your life. For example, if you’re facing lack in any area, receive the gift of provision by declaring, “My God shall supply all my needs according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:19). If there’s a mountain in your way, receive the gift of victory that says, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me“(Philippians 4:13).

            Today and every day, use the gift He’s given you. Make His Word a priority and don’t let it depart from your mouth. As you do, He’ll make your way prosperous, and you’ll enjoy the abundant life He has for you!

A Prayer for Today

            “Father, thank You for Your Word which is truth to set me free. I determine in my heart to set Your Word into motion in my life. Keep me close to You so that I can please You in everything I do. In Jesus’ name. Amen.”

By Joel & Victoria Osteen

THE SPARROW – By Jake Edgeman

Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground outside your Father’s care. And even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. So don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.” (Matthew 10:29-31)

AUGUEST 8

Today’s Scripture

            “Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.”  (Matthew 11:29, NIV)

Find Rest

            Sometimes the daily pressures of life can cause unnecessary stress. In fact, many people lose sleep worrying about things or people in their lives. But God doesn’t want us to live stressed out and overwhelmed. He wants us to live a life of rest and peace.

            When Jesus walked on this earth, He took time for Himself. He got away from the crowds. He spent time with the Father. That’s how He found rest. He was gentle and humble in heart.

            Do you ever notice that when you are stressed out or worrying about something, you’re less tolerant of others? You’re more likely to say something you don’t really mean. Today, God wants you to cast your cares on Him and live with a gentle and humble attitude. When you release your burdens and follow the example of Jesus, you will find rest for your soul. You will be rejuvenated and refreshed! You will find peace in your heart so that you can move forward in the abundant life God has for you!

A Prayer for Today

            “Father, today I cast my cares on You. Teach me, Holy Spirit, to have a gentle and humble attitude. Help me find rest for my soul so that I can love others the way You love me. In Jesus’ name. Amen.”

By Joel & Victoria Osteen

AUGUST 7

Today’s Scripture

            “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.”  (John 14:27, NIV)

Not as the World Gives

            So many people today are looking for true, inner peace. They search through relationships, addictions, money, gadgets and even religion to try to find something that will fill the void inside. But true peace isn’t found in anything this world has to offer, it can only be found through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Only He can satisfy the longing in our souls and give us true, lasting peace.

            God gives freely, not as the world gives. You can’t earn it, and you can’t pay for it. There’s no catch, no fine print and no strings attached. You can rest secure that He’s not ever going to take His peace away; His peace is eternal! A life of peace begins when you invite Jesus to be your Lord and Savior. Then as you align your thoughts, attitudes and actions with His Word, that peace will flood every area. Peace is how we know we are following God’s plan because God’s plan always leads to peace!

            If you’re looking for peace today, call on His name. Invite Jesus to be your Lord and Savior, follow His Word, and allow His peace to flood every area of your life.

A Prayer for Today

            “Dear God, thank You for the gift of peace which passes all understanding. I receive Your peace today and trust that You are leading and guiding me in the good plan You have prepared for me. In Jesus’ name. Amen.”

DAD, LET’S SING

“For you will go out with joy, And be led forth with peace;

The mountains and the hills will break forth into shouts of joy before you,

And all the trees of the field will clap their hands.”  (Isaiah 55:12)

            Familiar landmarks flashed by as the threesome motored along the highway.  Little lisps of conversation floated from two lads in booster seats behind the driver.  Amiably, the boys shared insights befitting the wisdom of their years.  In need of occasional backing, they quizzed Dad from time to time.  But Dad’s answers sounded short and toneless.  His thoughts centered on the pressures of his work.  Sometimes he emitted a disgruntled sigh.

            Suddenly a childish voice suggested, “Hey, Dad, let’s sing.  I like how singing makes me feel good.”  Dad’s musing stopped short.  “Well, what do you want to sing?” he asked.  “Little brother and I both want to sing ‘Up From the Grave He Arose,'” spoke the innocent voice.  With a rueful smile at the winsome rebuke, Dad began singing in a lusty voice that soon found a happy crescendo.

            Singing is a natural expression of God’s children.  What really is so difficult about just singing?  Perhaps we have already told God about our problems, yet the present discouragements fill us with anxiety.  What can we do?  Maybe it is time to tell our problems about God.  One way to accomplish this is by singing.  Songs of God’s past faithfulness, of present mercies, and of eternal truth have a curious way of causing our troubles to shrivel and disappear.

            Someday we’ll no longer concern ourselves with things of time and sense.  Heaven’s gates of pearl will open and give entrance to streets of gold.  Clothed in robes of righteousness, we’ll join a great reunion of the saints around God’s throne.  “The glory of God and of the Lamb” will enlighten the place.  We’ll do some glorious things like just singing throughout eternity.  So let’s sing today!

By Daniel Diller

Alleluia; Salvation, and glory, and honour, and power;

WHO IS YOUR GOD?

Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am.” (John 8:58)

            Various prominent religions of the world were founded by men.  Did any of these men claim to be God?  For example, Hinduism is one of the oldest religions and has millions of followers.  Hinduism has no single god and no leader who claimed to be God.  Confucius was a Chinese philosopher who founded a religion bearing his name, but he never claimed to be God.  Gautama was called Buddha and established the religion of Buddhism.  But he did not believe that God existed, so he never claimed to be God.  Mohammed referred to God as Allah and founded a religion that today has millions of followers, but neither did he claim to be God.

            One founder of a great religion did reveal Himself as God, and He is Jesus Christ.  Three times in John 8, Jesus referred to Himself as “I am.”  The first two times are in verses 24 and 28.  “If you believe not that I am He, you shall die in your sins…When you have lifted up the Son of man, then shall you know that I am He.” (The word he is not in the original Greek text.)  Jesus’ third claim is in today’s key verse.  In all these statements Jesus identified Himself as God, the I AM of Exodus 3:14.

            Jesus’ claim to be God was one of the main reasons that His enemies crucified Him.  Was His claim true?  Acts 17:31 says that God “hath given assurance (about Jesus) unto all men, in that He hath raised Him from the dead.”  So among the many founders of religions, Jesus Christ is the only one worthy to be followed.  Only Jesus died as the Savior of the world, rose again, and is still living today.  Do you know Him as your God?
