Today's Verse for 08/23/2012
Not only so, but we ourselves, who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we wait eagerly for our adoption as sons, the redemption of our bodies. — Romans 8:23

Thought
Life can be very difficult at times. Anyone who has lived long knows this. At the same time, even our worst nightmares are staging periods for our great redemption. Our loneliest moments are the waiting room for our final adoption into the very presence and family of the King of Ages. With the Spirit living inside us, we are assured of the ultimate destination of our lives, no matter where the current scene in life's drama places us. So let's live as those who are assured of their final destination but just have not yet finally arrived, not those who have made their home and placed their hope in what is present. Our best days lie ahead!

Prayer
Almighty and Faithful God, loving Abba Father, bless me with courage today so that I can face whatever obstacle may lie in my path, and please give me the spirituality to do so with grace, dignity, and integrity so that others may see my demeanor and bring you glory. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.

Today's Verse for 08/22/2012
"As long as the earth endures, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night will never cease." — Genesis 8:22

Thought
We face one of two realities. One reality is this: tomorrow will come, the earth will turn, and the seasons will pass in their appointed order. The second reality, God will interrupt his appointed order; Jesus will come and we'll share in his glory. These realities are as sure as the sun coming up in the morning and going down in the evening. Either way, God's promises win out over our fears and Satan's opposition. In other words, by God's grace, we win!

Prayer
Thank you, Almighty Father, for your great and wonderful promises. I trust in tomorrow for I know you will be there insuring it and Jesus will be there guiding me through it. In the name of my Coming and Conquering Lord I pray. Amen.

Today's Verse for 08/21/2012
He replied, "My mother and brothers are those who hear God's word and put it into practice." — Luke 8:21

Thought
I love the simple truth that Jesus uses. You want to be known as a part of Jesus' family? Obey his Father's Word and live his Father's will!

Prayer
Bless me today, dear Heavenly Father, with the clarity to see the opportunities you have placed in my to live in obedience to your will. However, dear Father, I don't want this clarity to be a fleeting thing. Help me be more aware of the opportunities you place in my path everyday. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.

Today's Verse for 08/20/2012
We want to avoid any criticism of the way we administer this liberal gift [the money that had been given for the Christians in Jerusalem]. For we are taking pains to do what is right, not only in the eyes of the Lord but also in the eyes of men. — 2 Corinthians 8:20-21

Thought
Those who lead, and especially those entrusted with the stewardship of God's funds, must carefully heed the example and call of the Apostle Paul. We need to be circumspect in the way we handle funds. This needs to be true in the privacy of our walk with God, but it also needs to be true in the way it appears to others.

Prayer
God, please forgive us, your people, for tolerating the charlatans and money grubbers who masquerade as your servants. May we, leaders and supporters alike, be honorable and holy in the sight of all, as we use your resources to do your work sharing the grace of Jesus. In the name of our Lord and Christ we pray. Amen.

Today's Verse for 08/19/2012
When men tell you to consult mediums and spiritists, who whisper and mutter, should not a people inquire of their God? Why consult the dead on behalf of the living? — Isaiah 8:19

Thought
We live in an age when people want to mix the contents of many mystical faiths into the boiling pot of a their own pseudo-Christian religion. Most do not know that the basic claim of Scripture is simple and clear. Only God, the Almighty Yahweh, is truly God. Only the one true and living God is to be worshiped. Only this Abba Father is to be trusted. Yes, there are other spiritual powers, but these powers lead to despair, death, and destruction. Seek God, the Yahweh of Israel, the righteous Father of Jesus, and live.

Prayer
Almighty Father and holy Majesty on high, rekindle in our lands a passion to seek you in truth so that the world may know your grace, so the people will honor your character, and the nations know your peace. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.

Today's Verse for 08/18/2012
I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us. — Romans 8:18

Thought
"Life is hard. Anyone who tells you differently is trying to sell you something." This line from the movie "The Princess Bride" is poignantly accurate. But it is not eternally accurate! Better days are ahead, and they are better than anything we can dare imagine. "O that will be, glory for me... when by Thy grace I shall look on His face, that will be glory..."

Prayer
Please, Almighty God, give me the courage and the vision to anticipate from afar the ultimate realization of grace that you have waiting and to believe up close that you are working to bring me home to you, and to that glory. In Jesus' name. Amen.

Today's Verse for 08/17/2012
You may say to yourself, "My power and the strength of my hands have produced this wealth for me." But remember the LORD your God, for it is he who gives you the ability to produce wealth, and so confirms his covenant, which he swore to your forefathers, as it is today. — Deuteronomy 8:17-18
Share on Facebook | Discuss this Verse

Thought
What do we have that wasn't given to us, either by God's generous grace, unexpected blessing, disciplining hardship, providential opportunity, or good health? And when we stand before the throne of judgment, what will our claim to grace be? Our claim on grace is based only God's generous and loving gifts that have made us pure, holy, and whole! Nothing we possess, accomplish, or buy can give us such a claim. Only God's generosity, grace, and love can bring heaven's greatest gifts to us.

Prayer
I thank you, dear Father, for your wonderful and extravagant blessings. All that I have, all that I am, and all that I ever hope to be exists only because of the mercy or grace you have lavished upon me. Thank you, in Jesus' name. Amen.

Today's Verse for 08/16/2012
When evening came, many who were demon-possessed were brought to him, and he drove out the spirits with a word and healed all the sick. This was to fulfill what was spoken through the prophet Isaiah: "He took up our infirmities and carried our diseases." — Matthew 8:16-17

Thought
How does Jesus feel about us when we feel tormented by evil and unfairness? Does he really long to touch our broken bodies when we are sick? Look two places and you will know the answer. First, look at him in the dusk of early evening touching the untouchable and you'll know. Second, look to the cross and see him in anguish so we can be confident that he knows and cares. But, there is a third place to look. Look to the future when we will see him, and every tear will be dried from our eyes and we will share in his glory. Here we trust in his grace and know it only in parts and pieces, but The Day will come when we will know fully the words of Matthew 8:16-17 in our own immortal bodies (1 Cor. 13:9-12; 1 Cor. 15:35-58).

Prayer
Holy and Righteous Father, until The Day of ultimate grace is fully realized, I trust your love and mercy will sustain me through the servant grace of my Savior and your Son. In his name, Jesus of Nazareth and of heaven, I pray. Amen.

Today's Verse for 08/15/2012
For you did not receive a spirit that makes you a slave again to fear, but you received the Spirit of sonship. And by him we cry, "Abba, Father." Romans 8:15

Thought
God is so holy, so mighty, so awesome, and yet he bids us to call him "Abba Father." Abba was a term of endearment, familiarity, dependency, and love used by Jewish toddlers to address their fathers. God, through the incredible gift of his Holy Spirit in us, has given us this ultimate gift of availability, love, companionship, protection, and mighty care. Abba! Sweet Abba Father! My God, my LORD, the Sovereign ruler of heaven's armies and Creator of the universe is also my Abba!

Prayer
Abba Father, thank you for being so close and yet so mighty, so accessible and yet so holy, so tender and yet so trustworthy. Thank you, dear Abba, for allowing me to come to you as your loving child. In Jesus' name and by the power of the Holy Spirit I pray. Amen.

Today's Verse for 08/14/2012
Israel has forgotten his Maker and built palaces; Judah has fortified many towns. But I will send fire upon their cities that will consume their fortresses. Hosea 8:14

Thought
In prosperity, God's people left the LORD and followed their own gods and practiced their own morality. Except neither was "their own." The northern tribes of Israel simply became like the pagan people around them -- practicing the same detestable immoral lifestyles, forgetting the poor and the alien, cheating the widows and the powerless. God wanted them to know that he knew what they were doing. The Almighty wanted them to realize that he would act and bring justice. The Sovereign LORD wanted the northern tribes of Israel to realize that they have sown their own destruction, and even though they cannot even fathom its possibility, God made sure it was coming because of their hardness of heart and their refusal to live with character. Their destruction is a great reminder to us that our name of Christian, our claim to be God's chosen people and his holy priesthood (1 Pet. 2), doesn't matter unless our lives portray his character, our heart displays his compassion, an! d hands do his will.

Prayer
Father, forgive us, for we sin. Father, forgive me, for sinning and looking the other way at social, judicial, and racial injustice. Empower me, dear LORD, empower us, to truly be your Holy Nation, bound together by our faith in Jesus and not by our race, age, nationality, political preferences, or social economic status, connected by our praise of your glory and exemplifying to the hate-filled world the grace that comes from knowing you as our Father. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.

Today's Verse for 08/13/2012
For if you live according to the sinful nature, you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the misdeeds of the body, you will live, because those who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God. — Romans 8:13-14

Thought
Sometimes it's a battle. Sometimes it's a war. Without the power of the Spirit, our willpower would eventually give out and our ending would be more distant from our Target than our beginning. But because of the Spirit's power, our losses can be overcome and our progress to our Goal is assured. (2 Corinthians 3:17-18)

Prayer
Forgive me, Father, for the times when I've let my flesh win out over the call of your Spirit. Thank you for cleansing me with the Spirit's holy fire and sanctifying me and drawing me onward to be more like my Savior. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.

Today's Verse for 08/12/2012
When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, "I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life." — John 8:12

Thought
After stumbling around in the dark watering my yard last night, I was overjoyed to find a flashlight so I wouldn't meet any unexpected "critters" as I reached into the shrubbery to turn my faucet on and off. My joy, however, is far greater at finding Jesus, who illuminates my heart on my darkest nights, illuminates my future with his coming glory, illuminates my path with his words of truth, and illuminates my hope with the dawning of each Sunday, my weekly reminder of his triumph over the grave.

Prayer
Father, dear precious and holy God, how can I ever thank you enough for the light of my life? Until my face reflects the light of your glory, Jesus will light my way. Thank you. In the name of Jesus, the Light of the world, I praise and thank you. Amen.

Today's Verse for 08/11/2012
And if the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you, he who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through his Spirit, who lives in you. — Romans 8:11

Thought
The Holy Spirit doesn't just empower us now. He is our guarantee (2 Cor. 1:22; 5:5) and our assurance that we will see God face to face (1 Jn. 3:1-2) and share in his glory (Col. 3:1-4). He is alive in us and promises us life that never will end.

Prayer
O God and Father of all nations and races, thank you for your guarantee that you will work in my life through the Holy Spirit and raise me up by your Spirit's power to join you in your presence. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.

Today's Verse for 08/10/2012
Jesus straightened up and asked her [the woman caught in adultery], "Woman, where are they? Has no one condemned you?" "No one, sir," she said. "Then neither do I condemn you," Jesus declared. "Go now and leave your life of sin." — John 8:10-11

Thought
Forgiveness is wonderful if it leads to life change. Jesus came to call us from sin, into his presence, and for his good pleasure. He gave us grace but is also gracious enough to not leave us in sin!

Prayer
O LORD my God, holy in all your ways, please transform my heart and my life into your holy will. Give me the assurance of forgiveness and the courage to leave my sin behind. In Jesus' name I ask you for your gracious and unlimited power to mold my heart and my life into a clearer reflection of you. Amen.

Today's Verse for 08/09/2012
You, however, are controlled not by the sinful nature but by the Spirit, if the Spirit of God lives in you. And if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he does not belong to Christ. — Romans 8:9

Thought
We show who is in control in our lives by the way we live! We show our relationship to the Father by living with his character in our world. So let's live under the control of the Spirit -- obeying the Spirit's inspired Word and following the Spirit's lead -- so we can show and share Jesus in what we say and do!

Prayer
Dear Father, please help the beauty, grace, and holiness of Jesus to be seen in me. May my life show the control, grace, and fruit of the Holy Spirit in all I do today and every day. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.

Today's Verse for 08/08/2012
But food does not bring us near to God; we are no worse if we do not eat, and no better if we do. Be careful, however, that the exercise of your freedom does not become a stumbling block to the weak. — 1 Corinthians 8:8-9

Thought
We have incredible freedom under grace. However, our freedom never gives us the license to destroy a weak brother or sister's walk with the Lord. Let's use our freedom considerately, especially toward our new brothers and sisters in Christ. These new Christians need our encouragement; they already have enough stumbling blocks!

Prayer
God of all grace, please help me to be an encouragement and a good example to new Christians and those who are weak in their faith. Please, help me guard my life from being a bad example to others. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.

Today's Verse for 08/07/2012
When they kept on questioning him, he straightened up and said to them, "If any one of you is without sin, let him be the first to throw a stone at her [the woman caught in adultery]." — John 8:7

Thought
When we find it easy to identify the sin of others, God wants us to be reminded of how important it is for us to take a rigorously honest inventory of our own faithfulness. He wants us to deal with our own sin before we evaluate anyone else.

Prayer
Forgive me, Father God, for my sins. Forgive me, especially Father, for the sin of a critical and judgmental spirit. Deliver me from such hurtful and evil habits, forgive me of my sins, and please bless me with faithfulness. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.

Today's Verse for 08/06/2012
But the ministry Jesus has received is as superior to theirs [Those who served as priests in Old Testament times.] as the covenant of which he is mediator is superior to the old one, and it is founded on better promises. — Hebrews 8:6

Thought
The Old Testament is a beautiful covenant of love, as God redeems fallen mankind and sets in motion his plan of grace to bring us to Jesus. But as powerful as that old covenant was, we have come to a superior covenant because the mediator of this new covenant is Jesus, who is the perfect sacrifice and guarantor of God's great promises.

Prayer
Thank you, Almighty God, for sending Jesus to fulfill the promises and carry out the plan you set in place so long ago and revealed by your prophets of old. I thank you and praise you in the name of Jesus Christ my Lord. Amen.

Today's Verse for 08/04/2012
Those who had been scattered preached the word wherever they went. Acts 8:4

Thought
When someone tries to stomp out the flame of dry broom weed, the sparks fly upward and ride upon the wind, spreading the flame far and wide. As Satan tried to use persecution to discourage the early church, the very martyrdom and persecution that drove these Christians from their homes was used by God to spread the message wherever they went. Each believer was a spark driven on the Divine Wind of God's empowering Spirit.

Prayer
O great God of mercy and grace, give me a holy passion to share your love and power with all I meet no matter what circumstances led them into my acquaintance. Give me the wisdom to see and the courage to act on the opportunities to share Jesus with those in my life. In the name of the Lord Jesus, I pray. Amen.

Today's Verse for 08/03/2012
For what the law was powerless to do in that it was weakened by the sinful nature, God did by sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful man to be a sin offering. And so he condemned sin in sinful man, in order that the righteous requirements of the law might be fully met in us, who do not live according to the sinful nature but according to the Spirit. — Romans 8:3-4

Thought
God gives us two gifts that fulfill the Law's righteous demands, but which the Law itself could never give us. First, he gives us the perfect sin offering -- his Son Jesus -- to forgive, cleanse, and redeem us from our sin. Second, he gives us his Spirit to empower us to be what he wants us to be. God gives us in the New Covenant what the Law and the Prophets promised was coming. Praise God for his plan, his promises, and his gifts!

Prayer
Thank you, Heavenly Father, for your incomparable kindness and grace in giving me your great and perfect gifts of your precious and perfect Son and the blessed Holy Spirit. In Jesus' name, and by the intercession of the Holy Spirit, I praise and thank you dear Father. Amen.

Today's Verse for 08/02/2012
... through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit of life set me free from the law of sin and death. Romans 8:2

Thought
Praise God! We are delivered from law-keeping and enabled to live out the will of God in our lives by the power of the Holy Spirit!

Prayer
Thank you, dear Father, for your grace and mercy. Praise you, God Almighty, for your incredible sacrifice to bring my pardon. Glory and honor to you, O Sovereign LORD, for your gift of the Holy Spirit to lead and guide me in your will and transform me into a person of your character. In Jesus' name I thank you. Amen.

Today's Verse for 08/01/2012
O LORD, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth! You have set your glory above the heavens. — Psalm 8:1

Thought
These two concepts seem to be contradictory, or at least unconnected. On the one hand, God's name is majestic in this plain ol' transitory space we call earthm but at the same time he is glorious and above the highest heavens. This collision of different worlds is played out in the life of Israel. It is made clear in the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus. It will be made glorious in us, who will one day share in the glory of the heavens because we have boldly declared the majesty of our LORD God on earth!

Prayer
Thank you, dear Father, for Jesus' promise that if I honor you and confess him on this earth, you will gladly honor me and call my name in the presence of your angels when the time comes for me to stand before your throne. In Jesus' name I thank you. Amen.

Today's Verse for 07/31/201
For this world in its present form is passing away. 1 Corinthians 7:31

Thought
This often repeated theme in the New Testament and from the lips of Jesus should be the great reminder that we shouldn't spend our lives working for what is temporary.

Prayer
Lord God Almighty, the Alpha and the Omega, the Eternal I Am, thank you for being what everything else in the world cannot be. Please awaken my heart to things of eternal significance and open my eyes so I can see through the things that are transitory. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.

Today's Verse for 07/30/2012
At this they tried to seize him, but no one laid a hand on him, because his time had not yet come. Still, many in the crowd put their faith in him. They said, "When the Christ comes, will he do more miraculous signs than this man?" — John 7:30-31

Thought
The enemies of Jesus had tried repeatedly to seize him. Yet the Gospel of John reminds us again and again that no one could seize Jesus until he offered himself up to them. Jesus followed God's timetable just as carefully as he obeyed his Father's will. So we can know with assurance that when Jesus died, he did so to redeem us and obey his Father's will, not because he was powerless to defend himself. Jesus' death is a voluntary sacrifice, a triumph of his obedience to his Father's will over his own will for preservation. He obeyed and we are saved! He offered himself as a sacrifice so we could be adopted into the Father's family!

Prayer
Lord Jesus, I thank you for honoring our Father and being obedient to him and his timing in your life. Thank you for choosing to die for me and redeem me from my sin. Thank you, dear Father, for such an incredible display of love and mercy that cost you so much. Please give me a more profound sense of my worth and significance to you, because I know the great price you paid to redeem and adopt me. In Jesus' holy name I pray. Amen.

Today's Verse for 07/29/2012
"Now be pleased to bless the house of your servant, that it may continue forever in your sight; for you, O Sovereign LORD, have spoken, and with your blessing the house of your servant will be blessed forever." 2 Samuel 7:29

Thought
God had blessed King David incredibly -- from a shepherd boy to King, from an errand boy to a war hero, from a small town to the leader of a great empire. David's concern, however, was that God stay close to him and his descendants, and uphold the promises he had made to David. More than any other discovery in his life of service, David had learned that the future, that every battle, and that any real hope lie in the presence of the LORD God of Israel. When God speaks, he keeps his word. When God acts, he acts to redeem. So David asked that God do what he longs to do, bless his people and keep his promises.

Prayer
Trustworthy and honorable God, my Father who has sustained me and blessed me, thank you for your presence in my life and your promises for my future. Bring me into your presence with great joy, just as you have promised, so that I can dwell in your house forever. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.

Today's Verse for 07/28/2012
When Jesus had finished saying these things, the crowds were amazed at his teaching, because he taught as one who had authority, and not as their teachers of the law. — Matthew 7:28-29

Thought
Unlike the teachers of his day, Jesus didn't have to shore up his teaching with obscure quotes from past teachers. Jesus, the Word of God, spoke the very words of God. He did and said what the Father willed. His life and his words had ring of authenticity and an awareness of power that extend through the ages and beckon us to his truth. This Jesus, our Teacher and Lord, is different. His words are powerful. His teachings are true. So his will must be our passion!

Prayer
Holy God, thank you for speaking through your prophets and through your Scriptures. But, Father, I praise you for speaking your greatest message in Jesus. As I see the character of his life, I am drawn to you. As I hear the authenticity in his words, I seek to humbly obey. Thank you for sending Jesus to be my teacher, my guide, my Lord, and my Savior. It is in his name, Jesus, that I pray. Amen.

Today's Verse for 07/27/2012
But we know where this man is from; when the Christ comes, no one will know where he is from. John 7:27

Thought
God in human flesh is how John 1:14 describes Jesus, God's ultimate message (cf. Heb. 1:1-3). Of course this is a mystery that we cannot fully fathom. It is beyond our human experience and limited reality. Jesus' critics want to easily characterize him as someone who cannot be Messiah because they think they know where he is from. They are wrong. They think he is from Nazareth and not Bethlehem. We know better. They are even more wrong, because Jesus isn't ultimately from Bethlehem; he is "from above." Jesus exhausts our imagination and overflows our cup of wonder as we seek to understand all that he is as our Savior, Christ the Lord.

Prayer
O Lord, forgive me for my limited vision of Jesus' glory. Enable my heart's ability to find wonder, joy, grace, exhilaration, glory, and awe in his power, his grace, his sacrifice, his victory, and his love. To you, Father, and to the Christ, be all the glory and honor that my heart can muster and my voice can proclaim. In Jesus' name I offer you my praise! Amen.

Today's Verse for 07/26/2012
Do not bring a detestable thing into your house or you, like it, will be set apart for destruction. Utterly abhor and detest it, for it is set apart for destruction. — Deuteronomy 7:26

Thought
A little corruption, a little poison, and a little rotten are all oxymorons. God has made us pure and perfect in Jesus. What a glorious thought! Why would we want to stain his perfection with what is evil. Our Father wants us to dedicate ourselves to him, and to living as his holy people (Rom. 12:1-2; 1 Pet. 1:13-16).

Prayer
Holy and Righteous God, please empower me to resist temptation and to run away from sin. Give me a more passionate desire to cherish and protect the purity you have given me by the sacrifice of Jesus. Give me a holy revulsion to evil and wickedness. Draw my heart closer to your own and give me a passion for your holiness. Thank you for making me holy and precious in your sight. In Jesus' name. Amen.

Today's Verse for 07/25/2012
Moses thought that his own people would realize that God was using him to rescue them, but they did not. — Acts 7:25

Thought
Timing is everything. Well, not everything, but an important thing. God's plan and power provide us with everything. Finding his timing for that plan and power is crucial. When Moses took it upon himself to redeem God's people, he failed. After being humbled in the wilderness, God called him back to deliver the people at the divine moment and according to the Almighty's plan. The results led to the Exodus -- the redemption and rebirth of God's holy people.

Prayer
Dear Heavenly Father, I am often impatient and frustrated by having to wait. Forgive me, dear God, for trying to rush your timetable and for assuming my plan is your plan. Please give me wisdom to know what do, where to go, and when to act. In Jesus' name I pray for this patience and wisdom. Amen.

Today's Verse for 07/24/2012
What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death? Thanks be to God -- through Jesus Christ our Lord! — Romans 7:24-25

Thought
Our bodies are mortal and flawed. They are tainted with our weakness and sin. But, by the grace of God given us in Jesus Christ, our future does not rest in the dust with our bodies, but in the power of our perfecting Lord.

Prayer
Almighty God, thank you for giving me life beyond the death of my mortal flesh. Thank you for giving me holiness beyond my sin-stained flesh. Thank you for delivering me from death and bringing me into your glory. Now, dear Father, may my words, deeds, and thoughts reflect your grace and power in all I do today and each day that follows. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
