Bible Verse of the Day - Daily Scripture, Daily Devotions

Mine eyes fail for Jesus, saying, When wilt thou comfort me? Have you ever hoped for something for a long time and then got discouraged because what you hoped for was taking too long? One has a tendency of getting discouraged when one has to wait too long. This reminds me of Proverbs 13:12.

Pro 13:12  Hope deferred maketh the heart sick: but when the desire cometh, it is a tree of life. 

Today’s verse is a blessing to me. When I was first saved, I read my Bible at least four to five hours nearly every day. My husband worked evenings and I would read until I couldn’t keep my eyes opened anymore. The Lord used this time to draw me near to Him.

My husband was not saved and he truly resented the woman I had become. I was no longer the woman he had married and my interests had changed. I no longer cursed and didn’t like to “party” anymore. This upset my husband and life became unbearable. I turned to the Lord over and over praying and hoping that my husband would get saved so that we would not be unequally yoked. My hope for his salvation kept being “deferred” and it was discouraging at times. Oh how I wanted the Lord Jesus to make Himself known to my husband and for His Holy Spirit to change his heart!

I’m sure each of you reading this has something they’ve been praying and your prayer has not been answered yet. Or maybe it has and it’s not the expected end you had hoped for! Dear reader, Jesus will answer your petitions but not always the way you want. Here’s a quote by Charles Spurgeon which is truly a blessing:

We may not set times to God, for this is to limit the Holy One of Israel; yet we may urge our suit with importunity, and make fervent enquiry as to why the promise tarries.

Charles spurgeon

The Lord wants to hear from us. He wants us to tell Him exactly what we’re feeling – our fears – our anxieties. After all, He is our Father and we are important to Him. Share those fears with Him… He awaits to hear from you!

Psalm 119:81 KJV | Read bible, How to memorize things ...

My soul fainteth for thy salvation: but I hope in Jesus! Jesus Christ is the source of God’s words to us. He alone provides salvation – He alone provides the words that we need from day to day. Everything is solvable by reading the Scriptures, friend. It does not matter what trial you are going through. Christ is there to reveal His truth to you. It may be a solution; it may be that the Lord is silent, which means to wait. Either way, all answers can be found within the pages of your Bible!

Jesus is the only source for salvation, reader! There is no other! These next five verses are so important and reveal the importance of today’s blog. Please read them carefully and prayerfully if you haven’t been born again (John 3:3).

Joh 1:1  In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 

Joh 1:14  And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth. 

Col 2:8-9  Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ. 9  For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily. 

Rom 10:17  So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. 

Act 4:12  Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. 

Friend, we can’t take what the world has to say as “written in stone”! The world today is so crazy and what seems right to them goes against Scripture. Furthermore, what is wrong to them is right according to the Scriptures. Just because the law says abortion is legal doesn’t mean it’s OK to have one. God’s word is totally against the killing of babies.

Psa 106:35-38  But were mingled among the heathen, and learned their works.  (36)  And they served their idols: which were a snare unto them.  (37)  Yea, they sacrificed their sons and their daughters unto devils,  (38)  And shed innocent blood, even the blood of their sons and of their daughters, whom they sacrificed unto the idols of Canaan: and the land was polluted with blood.

Then the world says it’s OK to be homosexual. In fact, it has gotten so open that those who hold to the teachings of Scriptures are ostracized for taking a stand for God’s word! God’s work is final, my friend. Your argument is not with me but with Him. I beg you to allow the Scriptures to fill your heart with conviction if you fall in these categories.

1Co 6:9-11  Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,  (10)  Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.  (11)  And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God. Noah Webster’s 1828 Dictionary defines the following:

EFFEM’INATEadjective [Latin effoeminatus, from effoeminor, to grow or make womanish, from foemina, a woman.

1. Having the qualities of the female sex; soft or delicate to an unmanly degree; tender; womanish; voluptuous.

2. Womanish; weak; resembling the practice or qualities of the sex; as an effeminate peace; an effeminate life.

ABU’SERnoun s as z. One who abuses, in speech or behavior; one that deceives; a ravisher; a sodomite.

Don’t be deceived, reader. Don’t let the world with its lies draw you into a trap that will eventually lead to eternity in hell’s fire. We are living in the end times. How do I know? Read these verses written in the first century A.D. These verses reveal what time we are in:

Rom 1:21-32  Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.  (22)  Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,  (23)  And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.  (24)  Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:  (25)  Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.  (26)  For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:  (27)  And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.  (28)  And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;  (29)  Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,  (30)  Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,  (31)  Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:  (32)  Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.

Wow … just wow! How can one ignore these verses? Dear reader, PLEASE take to heart what I’ve written today. I know I may get nasty comments but it must be written! May the Lord soften your heart and help you come to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ!

Psalm 119:80 (KJV) Let my heart be sound in thy statutes ...

Let my heart be sound in Jesus; that I be not ashamed! Good morning, readers! I trust that you are rooted and sound in your faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. Christianity began over 2,000 years ago and was wrought with torture and discrimination at its beginnings from the “religious.” With much sacrifice, Christ’s deity and position as the Only One who provides salvation was preached throughout the world. Christianity today has become diluted and has fallen from what our forefathers lost their lives over. Foxes Book of Martyrs outlines the torments of those who gave their lives for the message of Jesus Christ.

Joh 14:6  Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. 

Why is this message so important? Just look around you, friend. Observe the “church” of today and the message it presents. There are few who still practice this verse. Many have accepted the world into the mainstream church and their message is not providing the same message of the blessed early church. Today, the church has allowed sodomy in its leadership as well as women pastors, to name a couple of compromises. The very foundations have been shaken and are no longer considered important.

All roads do not lead to heaven, reader! It is a mistake to think that the pope is the “know all” for salvation. His beliefs were revealed when he said:

In comments likely to enhance his progressive reputation, Pope Francis has written a long, open letter to the founder of La Repubblica newspaper, Eugenio Scalfari, stating that non-believers would be forgiven by God if they followed their consciences.

No, this is so wrong and a direct contradiction to the Scriptures! The conscience, is the center of man’s heart, from which a person’s actions are revealed. Jeremiah pointed out:

Jer 17:9  The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it? 

If one follows one’s heart (conscience) instead of the Scriptures, one will surely stray in the wrong direction because man’s heart is desperately wicked according to God’s word. Friend, God’s word is final and pure! The Bible is our measuring stick as to what is true in this world and what isn’t.

Psa 12:6  The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times. 

Therefore, IF God’s words are true in the Scriptures and Jesus is the only way to Heaven, who are you to believe? The world or God? Wouldn’t you rather be in the minority and go to Heaven? Or would you want to go with the majority and be wrong only to spend an eternity in hell, forever separated from God?

Please, reader, do not kick against the pricks as Paul did in Acts 9:5. Paul, a Pharisee and persecutor of the early church, believed his religion so much so that he did all he could to dismiss this “Jesus of Nazareth as Saviour”! But Jesus revealed Himself to Paul and Paul became one of the greatest preachers of all time! Most of the New Testament was penned by Paul. Paul realized that Jesus was the only way and preached it until he was martyred.

In these days, people are looking for peace and truth in a world gone mad with antagonism, hostility and lies. God’s word provides truth and peace for anyone who is searching.

Mat 11:28-30  Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 29  Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. 30  For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light. 

Psalm 119:129 KJV | KJV Scripture - TLC Creations | Pinterest | Psalm 119, King james and Bible

Let those that fear thee turn unto me, and those that have known Jesus! Good morning! Praying this day is a blessed one for you and that you are trusting in the Lord during this pandemic! It’s during times like these that our testimony for Christ should shine through! People are watching and looking at how you react in times of stress. Are you fretting? Are you trusting the Lord (Prov. 3:5-6)? There’s not an ounce of worry that will solve these problems, amen?

In today’s verse, I believe that David’s bad testimony (Bathsheba, etc.) had caused his followers to turn from him. David was repentant of his sin but the stench of that sin was still in the minds of those that left him. Here David is asking the Lord to turn those followers’ hearts back to him. It would be no different than me ruining my testimony and trying to set that right with God and then with my church family.

There are some sins that will follow you the rest of your life, whether you have repented of that sin or not. I know of this young man whose father was a Pastor. The young man was saved at a young age but got caught up in the wrong crowd. His friends talked him into being a getaway driver as they committed armed robbery. This young man went to prison and served his time. He ruined his life and it took a while for the church family to trust him once again when he was released from prison. Because of this, he was no longer able to help his father in the ministry with anything involving money.

David was in this same situation. His previous sins caused others not to trust him and he was begging the Lord to help him regain that trust with his people.

Psa 30:5  For his anger endureth but a moment; in his favour is life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning. 

Where are you in your life, Christian? Have you lost your testimony? God can heal that as He did David’s. In light of today’s political climate, we as believers must show the lost that there is hope in the blessed Name of Jesus! He gives peace in the midst of the storm! Amen?

Psa 84:11  For the LORD God is a sun and shield: the LORD will give grace and glory: no good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly. 

2 Co 4:16-18  For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day. 17  For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory; 18  While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal. 

Psalms 119:78 KJV - Let the proud be ashamed; for they ...

Let the proud be ashamed; for they dealt perversely with me without a cause: but I will meditate in Jesus. Can every believer scream this verse at this point in time in our Country???? Yes, indeed! Perhaps the proud have not dealt with me personally but they have indirectly dealt with nearly every area of my life. To what am I referring? The “left’s” efforts to rob the conservatives of their voice and rights has never been more prevalent as it is right now. They are dealing with us perversely without a cause. We have done nothing to them. We have stood on our principles according to the Bible. Therefore, we must presume that they are serving their father, the devil, and are hating us because of Jesus Christ.

Noah Webster’s 1828 Dictionary defines perversely as:

PERVERSELY, adverb pervers’ly. With intent to vex; crossly; peevishly; obstinately in the wrong.

I find the definition of “vex” is also needed to be inserted here:

VEXverb transitive [Latin vexo.]

1. To irritate; to make angry by little provocations; a popular use of the word.

2. To plague; to torment; to harass; to afflict.

Ten thousand torments vex my heart.

3. To disturb; to disquiet; to agitate.

White curl the waves, and the vex’d ocean roars.

4. To trouble; to distress.

I will also vex the hearts of many people. Ezekiel 32:9.

5. To persecuteActs 12:1.

My friend, does this define the state of our beloved Country? Does this not define what the Christian is up against? But instead of fretting, let’s learn from David! David says he will meditate on God’s precepts. Jesus is the Word of God – He is the center of all precepts – the Creator and Definer of all precepts.

Meditate on Jesus, dear Christian. Rest in His care. He is still on the Throne and He will come again in the clouds to take us to Him. Will we have to suffer persecution before He returns for us? Maybe. But we do not know the hour or the day so why worry and fret over it? In the mean time, know that the same God who provided safety for Noah and his family, will help us through until He raptures us home! Be encouraged … be diligent in prayer and serving. Concentrate on the eternal rather what this world offers.

When one focuses on the negative, it affects our spirit and heart! When your heart is not into whatever you are doing, the results are evident. Therefore, place Christ on the throne of your heart and mind and let Him take care of those things which are beyond your control.

Let thy tender mercies come unto me, that I may live: for Jesus is my delight!! Yes!!! Praise His holy name!! \o/ To a Christian, the name of Jesus is a delight and beautiful sound to the ears! Jesus Christ, our Saviour, was sent for a purpose and that was to save mankind from sin. Our Heavenly Father loves us so much that He sent His only Son to die on the cross and pay the penalty for that sin. Can you imagine knowing you were placed on this earth for one sole purpose and that purpose was to die for a cause in which you didn’t participate? Jesus did just that! He was sinless and yet He died for sin! For our sin! Oh what a friend He is indeed! Is He your delight, my friend?

What a friend we have in Jesus!

What a Friend we have in Jesus,
  All our sins and griefs to bear!
What a privilege to carry
  Everything to God in prayer!
O what peace we often forfeit,
  O what needless pain we bear,
All because we do not carry
  Everything to God in prayer!

Have we trials and temptations?
  Is there trouble anywhere?
We should never be discouraged,
  Take it to the Lord in prayer.
Can we find a friend so faithful
  Who will all our sorrows share?
Jesus knows our every weakness,
  Take it to the Lord in prayer.

Are we weak and heavy-laden,
  Cumbered with a load of care?
Precious Savior, still our refuge–
  Take it to the Lord in prayer;
Do thy friends despise, forsake thee?
  Take it to the Lord in prayer;
In His arms He’ll take and shield thee,
  Thou wilt find a solace there.

Man Kneeling Before Jesus Png & Free Man Kneeling Before ...

I think of the strength and power we receive when we spend time in prayer before Jesus. He gives us the strength to carry on no matter what the circumstances surrounding us.

Today’s political climate is so unsettled. As if that weren’t enough, the Covid virus has many people wringing their hands in worry! What can we gain by adding worry to our burden? Can we personally do anything about it? Can we personally cure it? If you’re like me, you’re an average non-medical person and cannot even come close to finding a cure. Therefore, why worry about it? Why not turn that worry muscle into action by praying to the One who can cure it!

This is how we can equip ourselves with strength and fearless determination, my friend! The world is frantic about what is going on… just look at the unrest that exists! People of this generation have been accustomed to living in peace and mostly harmony. However, the devil knows his time is short and is doing everything in his power to bring together the powers of evil and darkness into positions that can change our world. Don’t be alarmed! God is on His throne and He knows exactly what He is doing. He’s allowing these things to happen for a reason so we must trust Him and rest in His care. How? By focusing on the good things in life and remove ourselves from the bad. Stop watching television or listening to news that can weigh you down! Being in a constant negative environment will make you not only spiritually sick, but also emotionally and physically. Think on the good things. Here are a few verses that may help! Let them heal your weary soul:

Philippians 4:6-7 – Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.   (Read More…)

Matthew 6:25-34 – Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?   (Read More…)

1 Peter 5:7 – Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.

Matthew 6:33-34 – But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.   (Read More…)

Philippians 4:13 – I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.

Proverbs 12:25 – Heaviness in the heart of man maketh it stoop: but a good word maketh it glad.

1 Peter 5:6-7 – Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time:   (Read More…)

Matthew 11:28-30 – Come unto me, all [ye] that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.   (Read More…)

Matthew 6:27 – Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature?

Philippians 4:6 – Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.

John 14:27 – Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.

Philippians 4:19 – But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.

Psalms 55:22 – Cast thy burden upon the LORD, and he shall sustain thee: he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved.

Luke 1:37 – For with God nothing shall be impossible.

1 John 4:18 – There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.

Psalm 119:76-77

Let, I pray thee, thy merciful kindness be for my comfort, according to Jesus unto thy servant. Is there truly any better comfort than that which is brought by being a child of the King? God is good, all the time, amen? His kindness toward us is so undeserved but praise Him that He sheds that kindness despite us! Mercy was given to us the day that Christ shed His blood for us and arose. He paid the ultimate price so that we could experience His merciful kindness each and every single day.

His merciful kindness is for our comfort – do you get that Christian? This is why we cannot focus on the negatives of this world. We must train ourselves to think on the good things, despite the circumstances which surround us.

Php 4:8  Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. 

Training ourselves is like exercising a muscle. It doesn’t come easy – it doesn’t come without pain and adjustment. However, when we practice this verse, we are training our minds and hearts to focus on true, honest, just, pure, and good reports! The news and social media are surely not filled with any of these. However, in order for us to live out this verse, we must live and breathe it. Otherwise, we will be pulled down and become as negative as the news they put out. We can only be as effective to an unsaved world as what we put in our hearts, amen?!!! Our goal is to lead others to Christ, not to lead others to a political agenda. Only Christ can change the heart of a liberal unsaved thinker. They are exposed to the news and social media all day long. But they are rarely exposed to the loving Christian whose desire is to lead them to Truth and Christ’s merciful kindness!

Psalms 119:75 by mvcquotes on DeviantArt

I know, O LORD, that Jesus is right, and that thou in faithfulness has afflicted me. Wow, this one is a tough verse to swallow, isn’t it? David is talking to God and admitting to Him that God’s judgments are always right, no matter what. Once we know Christ as our Saviour, we begin to understand why we go through trials and afflictions. Sometimes the trials are not so overwhelming; but there are other times, they are!

Jesus brings peace and rest to His child. My very first trial was being married to someone who did not share my joy of salvation. He couldn’t understand this new found love of God. There were times my husband would make my life unbearable. I found out later that he did this so he could see me slip up and go back to my “old self”! Praise the Lord, God was faithful and helped me through these times and I was able to maintain my testimony with my husband. My favorite verses at the time were:

Mat 11:28-30  Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 29  Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. 30  For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light. 

Our burdens may not seem “light” at the time but it caused the spring of hope to overflow in my heart and the Holy Spirit would encourage me! I think of the hymn “On Christ the Solid Rock I Stand”! Christ is our anchor in unsettled times such as these. Amen!!

My hope is built on nothing less
Than Jesus’ blood and righteousness
I dare not trust the sweetest frame
But wholly lean on Jesus’ name

On Christ the solid rock I stand
All other ground is sinking sand
All other ground is sinking sand

When darkness veils his lovely face
I rest on His unchanging grace
In every high and stormy gale
My anchor holds within the veil

They that fear thee will be glad when they see me, because I have hoped in Jesus! Are your brothers and sisters in Christ happy to see you? Do you have an impact on their lives? How involved are you in their lives?

Where does one start if one wants to have an impact on others? It starts with your family and then blossoms out. Do you have close friends who are believers? If yes, how can you be a blessing? Are there senior saints in your church that could use a hand? Step up to the plate! Does your church need a prayer warrior?

Someone once told me “sometimes you just need to be Jesus with skin on!” What an impact! This applies to the saved and unsaved alike! Jesus told the truth and spread the good news about salvation. He taught His disciples and trained them for their mission. He met the needs of those that crossed His path: from blind Bartimaeus to the woman at the well to the leper in Matthew! Instantly these three were cleansed (inside and out). I recently heard a message about the leper that really impacted me.

Mat 8:2-3 And, behold, there came a leper and worshipped him, saying, Lord, if thou wilt, thou canst make me clean. 3 And Jesus put forth his hand, and touched him, saying, I will; be thou clean. And immediately his leprosy was cleansed. 

Jesus is always willing to cleanse us! Leprosy is a “type” of sin and the Lord is always willing to cleanse us from all unrighteousness, amen? And not only that, He does it instantly.

1 Jn_1:9  If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

Praise God from whom all blessings flow! \o/

Pin on Christian Quotes and Bible Verses

Thy hands have made me and fashioned me: give me understanding, that I may learn Jesus! Oh yes!! What a blessing this verse is for today! In light of the abortion controversy, this verse proves that God was the One who designed me! Noah Webster defines “fashioned” as:

Made; formed; shaped; fitted; adapted.

God shaped me into the person He wanted me to be. He fitted me with everything I would need in my life! He adapted (made me suitable) for His mission. My word, friend, does this not excite you? Every detail within my DNA was designed with a purpose! The first and foremost priority in one’s life is to accept Jesus Christ as your Saviour. There is no other name under heaven that one can call on to be saved from our sins.

John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
Act 4:12  Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. 

What an impact these two verses have on an individual. This is where the rubber meets the road. You have to get this part of your life straight before you can see what God’s intentions are for you. He designed you with a purpose. What is your purpose? With the salvation that God has gifted to you through His Son, your responsibility is to communicate this to others. It doesn’t matter what platform you use, whether person to person or through a blog such as this. Just use that and tell others the wonderful news of Jesus Christ! Yes, He IS the Good News in a world gone mad! He alone brings peace in the midst of chaos and suffering! Amen?

Psalms 119:72 by mvcquotes on DeviantArt

Jesus’s words are better unto me than thousands of gold and silver! Just what would you pay to obtain absolute truth? If you knew that someone could provide you with all the answers to life, give you direction in the way you should live your life, and even provide you with a secure spot in Heaven, just how much would you pay that person? I’d venture to say if there was such a person, you’d probably sell everything you had to have these kinds of guarantees, amen?

Psa 19:9  The fear of the LORD is clean, enduring for ever: the judgments of the LORD are true and righteous altogether. 10  More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb. 

God’s word provides us everything we need in life. It endures forever according to Psalm 19:9. But what else does God’s word provide to us? First and foremost, its pages depict salvation which secures where we spend eternity. There are countless verses which show us the way but these two show us who provides that salvation and where the “world” gets it wrong:

Eph 2:8  For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: 9  Not of works, lest any man should boast. 

Secondly, once we recognize that God is the source of everything we have, we can rest assured He will provide exactly what we need, when we need it! Amen? The Bible guarantees peace and joy when we seek God’s will for our lives. We may not like the situation we are in but rest assured that God has allowed it for His glory and for your benefit!

Php 4:19  But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus. 

Where are you today, Christian? Are you dependent on money and status more than Christ and His provision in life? Do a moral inventory and see where you’re sitting?

Psalm 119:71 KJV | Bible psalms, Bible quotes kjv, Kjv

It is good for me that I have been afflicted; that I might learn Jesus! Oh yes, indeed. Noah Webster’s 1828 Dictionary defines “afflicted” as:

AFFLICT’EDparticiple passive Affected with continued or often repeated pain, either of body or mind; suffering grief or distress, of any kind; followed by at, by or with; as, afflicted at the loss of a child, by the rheumatism, or with losses.

David was indeed afflicted in many ways: the death of his son, attempts on his life, repercussions from his own sin, etc. But David states here that it was good for him so that he might learn God’s word! God’s word teaches us everything we need to know about life as well as salvation through Jesus Christ! When we become a child of the King, we have this wonderful capability of pulling through any trial because of God’s grace!

If it weren’t for the Lord, it would be extremely difficult to make it through trials and tribulation with peace – in fact, nearly impossible! But with His help, we can trust in Him to help us to overcome each affliction without becoming bitter! What better way to bring glory to the One Who saved you than by praising Him through the storms of life? What a testimony it is to a lost and dying world desperately seeking for comfort!!

What kind of testimony are you today, Christian?

Daily Bible Verse - Psalm 119:70 | Psalm 119:70 Their heart … | Flickr

Their heart is fat as grease, but I delight in Jesus. Today’s verse reminds me of someone who delights in the “fat” of money, material excess, etc. What the heart desires, this person succumbs to it and does not deprive it of any worldly thing. However, David says that he delights in the Lord! David had wealth as a King and was able to get anything he wanted. But in today’s verse, we see that the Lord was his delight.

Where does that leave me? Let’s ask ourselves a few questions: Where does my heart delight? In what does my heart delight? What do I put before my love for the Lord? Where do the things of God appear in my daily calendar? Is He the last thing I turn to, if at all? These are all pretty poignant and soul searching questions but ones we should ask ourselves when doing our moral inventory.

When our eyes focus on giving our flesh all of its desires, our eyes are certainly not on the Lord. When our eyes are on the Lord, those worldly desires fall by the wayside and are no longer a priority.

Bible Verse of the Day - Daily Scripture, Daily Devotions

The proud have forged a lie against me: but I will keep Jesus with my whole heart! Oh how this verse depicts the social and political climate of today. When people today don’t like something or someone, a series of lies are started. This quote appears in Analysis of the Personality of Adolph Hitler: With Predictions of His Future Behaviour and Suggestions for Dealing with Him Now and After Germany’s Surrender, by Henry A. Murray, October 1943:[10]

Never to admit a fault or wrong; never to accept blame; concentrate on one enemy at a time; blame that enemy for everything that goes wrong; take advantage of every opportunity to raise a political whirlwind.

This truly reflects the left’s position in today’s current politics. President Trump is to blame for everything and the left has certainly managed to “raise a political whirlwind.” Why don’t Americans see this? Why don’t believers see this? They are blinded by the father of this world, that’s why.

But Christian, if you are in your Bible and listening to the Holy Spirit’s guidance and teaching, you will see through these smoke screens. Keeping Jesus with our whole heart is an ongoing process. It takes work. In a world filled with quick “microwave” solutions, people expect to absorb without effort. However, learning the Scriptures does take effort. It takes time to read and absorb what the Holy Spirit wants to teach us. All the answers are in our Bible, folks.

Thou art good, and doest good; teach me Jesus! God is so patient and kind; there is nothing that He does that is not surrounded by love and goodness. So much so, He desires that all His creation be saved from eternity in Hell. He wants us all to repent and accept His Son’s work on the cross for the penalty for our sins. He gave His only Son in order to accomplish this task. What more love can be shown than to do this?

2Pe 3:9  The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. 

Everything we need in life is in God’s word. It teaches about salvation from the first pages of Genesis all the way through to Revelation. No other book guides mankind in this manner. Everything in its pages leads us to Christ. If only man would pick up the Bible and learn about Jesus. He can be found and will reveal Himself to you! Thank You, Lord!

Psalm 119:67 KJV | Bible quotes kjv, Psalm 119, Psalms

Before I was afflicted I went astray: but now have I kept Jesus. Trials have a way of drawing us to Christ’s side. When we are not afflicted, our hearts stray and Jesus is not our focus. However, when a trial comes into our lives, we have the tendency to turn to Jesus and seek His comfort and help. 1 Pe 5:10  But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you. 

In order for you to have a car which is dependable, you spend time taking care of it: changing the oil, etc. That car is ready for travel and you’re not afraid that it will break down. It’s much the same with our relationship with Christ. If we were to nurture our time with Jesus when things are going well, we would not fall apart when a trial comes our way, amen? I believe this is what David was referring to today. It’s as though he is saying that now that he is “keeping his relationship with the Saviour,” afflictions will not cause him to stray from the Lord’s side. So it should be with us. It is also especially most needed during the trials. It is the Comforter’s job to minister to us but if we do not seek Him, we miss out on that blessed comfort!

Teach me good judgment and knowledge: for I have believed in Jesus! Today, the child of God is absolutely blessed with having God’s words written so that we can access it any time we want! It’s not limited to just Sunday services. I can turn to my Bible anywhere and any time! It illuminates, teaches and inspires us to becoming more like Christ! The words of God are given to us in order for us to be able to make wise decisions and to live a godly life! The whole purpose for our being on this earth is to fear God and to keep His commandments, amen?

Ecc 12:13  Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man. 

The only way we can do this is by first being born again! Joh 3:3  Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. Once we are saved, we receive the Holy Spirit and He is the One that teaches us in all things.

Joh 14:26  But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you. 

1Jn 2:27  But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him. 

The Holy Spirit will teach us good judgment and knowledge. We must ask and seek. And when we are not sure, we knock until we have His answer!

I will be on vacation from 9/28 – 10/2. I will resume writing when I return! God bless!!

Thou has dealt well with thy servant, O Lord, according unto Jesus. As we know, Jesus is the word of God. 1 Jn 5:7  For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one. Jesus left His Kingly throne to come to earth to pay the price for the sins of mankind. The Law of the Old Testament was our schoolmaster that was to draw us to Christ. However, once Christ’s sacrifice on the cross was complete, the believer was justified by faith. We are no longer under the Law.

God is always fair and good. Not only that, He is merciful and just. He deals with us according to His word. When we are born again, we are justified through Christ. This is what the Father sees. We are no longer under condemnation the Father sees Christ’s righteousness in us. We are now a child of the King and are a part of His family! Praise God!!

The earth, O lord, is full of thy mercy, teach me Jesus! Salvation is open to everyone. There is not one person (past, present or future) who cannot be saved. It is a choice that every human being has to make.

Eph 2:8-9  For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: 9  Not of works, lest any man should boast. 

Rom 10:13  For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. 

If a person realizes a need for God in their life, the Lord will present an opportunity for the Gospel to be revealed in some way. Before I was saved, I joined a Bible study at my job at the invitation of a co-worker. I had no idea what was being discussed but that was the beginning of my journey. God saw the desire in my heart and He sent my best friend to share the Gospel with me.

If you do not know Jesus Christ as your Saviour and God has been working in your heart to seek Him, submit yourself and ask God for direction. He will not refuse for He seeks all to be saved.

1Ti 2:3-6  For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour; 4  Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth. 5  For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus; 6  Who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time.
