TODAY'S VERSE from HEARTLIGHT -

February 1, 2012

VERSE:
My dear children, I write this to you so that you will not sin.
But if anybody does sin, we have one who speaks to the Father in
our defense -- Jesus Christ, the Righteous One. He is the atoning
sacrifice for our sins, and not only for ours but also for the sins
of the whole world.
-- 1 John 2:1-2


THOUGHT:
John wants to prevent even one sinful event in the lives of
those he loves. He is concerned because he knows that even one
sinful event can be used by Satan to discourage and defeat us. We
need to know that we have a Savior and a defender. He paid the
price to redeem us, he sent his Spirit to help us overcome sin's
power, and he will speak to the Father and claim that right to
forgive us.


PRAYER:
Father, I'm embarrassed by my weakness and vulnerability when I
sin. Even in those moments of shame, I'm thankful that Jesus
provided me the way back into your holy presence. Jesus, I thank
you for coming to my rescue and my defense. I will not let Satan
discourage me when I fall. Instead, I re-commit myself to live with
your character and for your glory. In your name, Lord Jesus, my
defender, I pray. Amen.

January 31, 2012

VERSE:
Since they hated knowledge and did not choose to fear the LORD
.. they will eat the fruit of their ways and be filled with the
fruit of their schemes.
-- Proverbs 1:29,31


THOUGHT:
Sometimes the natural consequence of rebellion is its own
justice. Rebellion ultimately produces bad fruit, and wickedness is
often its own worst punishment. In the face of such a generous God
as we focused upon yesterday, how could we choose to follow any
other path but his? It may seem harder in the short run, but in the
long run there is simply no option that compares!


PRAYER:
Father of justice and mercy, thank you for saving me by your
grace. Thank you for promising to judge the world with grace,
mercy, and justice. In you, and you alone, do I find my sense of
what is right and fair. I cry out to you, O God, for justice and
deliverance for your people who are oppressed, ridiculed, and
persecuted. In Jesus' name. Amen.

TODAY'S VERSE from HEARTLIGHT
January 30, 2012

VERSE:
...you are in Christ Jesus, who has become for us wisdom from
God -- that is, our righteousness, holiness and redemption.
Therefore, as it is written: "Let him who boasts boast in the
Lord."
-- 1 Corinthians 1:30-31


THOUGHT:
Jesus is our righteousness, holiness, and redemption. Let's
unpack those church words. Righteousness -- the ability to stand
before God and be declared free from guilt. Holiness -- the
character and nature that reflect the glory and sanctity of heaven.
Redemption -- the gift of freedom bought at great expense.
Christians aren't perfect? Hmmm! We know this is true. But, because
of Jesus' loving sacrifice, we also know that in God's eyes we're
righteous, holy, and redeemed. That, dear friend of Jesus, is what
we call amazing grace!


PRAYER:
How can I thank you, wise and merciful Father, for the gift of
Jesus? Your love in formulating the plan to send him, your
sacrifice in having him become mortal, your agony when your own
creations murdered him are too wonderful for understanding. But in
my heart I do know that you did these things because of your loving
grace and I want to thank you and praise you forever. In Jesus'
name I pray. Amen.

January 29, 2012

VERSE:
Then I said to you, "Do not be terrified; do not be afraid of
them. The LORD your God, who is going before you, will fight for
you, as he did for you in Egypt, before your very eyes."
-- Deuteronomy 1:29-30


THOUGHT:
Moses began his farewell message to Israel with a reminder of
their parents' refusal to obey God's word to enter the Promised
Land. With his death, these Israelites will have to follow a leader
other than Moses for the first time in their lives. Moses wants
them to know that their real Leader hasn't changed. God had done
mighty things for them in Moses' day. Now God will do mighty things
in their day through Joshua. They will have more than second hand
deliverance stories to tell their grandchildren. They will be
eyewitnesses of God's power and faithfulness. But they would have
to obey this same command their parents ignored and own a faith
that their ancestors did not have!


PRAYER:
Almighty and Sovereign LORD, all glory and honor goes to you for
your mighty acts to redeem, to save, to fulfill, and to bless your
people throughout the ages. I ask, dear LORD, please bless your
people today with faith to expect your power, hearts to obey your
Word, and eyes to see that your great work is not yet done. In
Jesus' name I pray. Amen.

January 28, 2012

VERSE:
We proclaim him [Christ], admonishing and teaching everyone with
all wisdom, so that we may present everyone perfect in Christ.
-- Colossians 1:28


THOUGHT:
The life of Jesus is transformational. The resurrection of Jesus
is transformational. The Gospel of Jesus is transformational.
Jesus' gift of the Spirit is transformational. The proclamation of
Jesus is transformational. The work of Jesus is transformational.
In other words, Jesus is the key, the center, the hub, and the
heart of what we do and why we do it. Paul also reminds us that
Jesus Christ is our goal.


PRAYER:
Father, please forgive me. I confess that in my zeal to help
others, I have sometimes lost sight of Jesus' power to change their
lives and relied on my own meager resources. As I seek to know
Christ more perfectly and as I seek to be more like Christ in my
daily character, please use me to lead others to him and to be like
him. In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, the name above all
names, I pray. Amen.

January 27, 2012

VERSE:
So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he
created him; male and female he created them.
-- Genesis 1:27


THOUGHT:
We are made in God's image. Not just the man. Not just the
woman. Both male and female are made in God's image! Incredibly,
this is not just true before the Fall. When God made us in the womb
of our mothers (Psalm 139:13-16), he made us in his image (Genesis
9:6). Because people are precious to God, because we reflect
something of the character of our Creator, each person is to be
valued. None is to be denigrated, belittled, or cursed (James
3:9-12). People are precious, not only to God, but also to us
because in some special way they reflect his image.


PRAYER:
Almighty Creator, please help me value each person I meet today
because I am consciously aware that you have individually made them
to reflect your character and nature. At the same time, bless me
with spiritual growth as I consciously submit myself to your Spirit
as you transform me to be more like you each day. In Jesus' name I
pray. Amen.

VERSE:
Then God said, "Let us make man in our image, in our likeness,
and let them rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the
air, over the livestock, over all the earth, and over all the
creatures that move along the ground."
-- Genesis 1:26


THOUGHT:
While we are creatures made by a loving Creator, we are so much
more than animals. There is something distinctive and special about
a human being compared with the rest of creation. God made us to
rule over the animal world. But rule does not mean ruin! Since
creation is part of God's testimony to himself (Psalm 19 & Romans
1:20), then we certainly don't want to ruin that testimony. In
fact, being made in God's likeness, we want to rule with the grace,
benevolence, and care that God himself uses.


PRAYER:
Father, help me see all the beauty of your creation. Guard me
from wastefulness. Guide me into the proper use of the natural
resources with which you have so generously blessed me. Most of
all, direct my decisions in the way I impact your creation. May my
lifestyle and my personal life never damage the beauty of your
voice in my world. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.

VERSE:
The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit.
-- Philemon 1:25


THOUGHT:
Have you noticed how words of blessing are in such short supply?
There is something about our fallen state that makes sarcasm and
ridicule easier to use than blessing. But, in God's family, words
are always to be used for the benefit and blessing of others. What
simpler or kinder words do we need to use to bless others than
these words Paul sent to Philemon? Let's find a way to say them ...
and say them again ... and again ...


PRAYER:
Loving Father, you have blessed me so much with your grace.
Please use me to be a blessing to everyone I meet today. In Jesus'
name I pray. Amen.

TODAY'S VERSE from HEARTLIGHT
January 24, 2012

VERSE:
To him who is able to keep you from falling and to present you
before his glorious presence without fault and with great joy -- to
the only God our Savior be glory, majesty, power and authority,
through Jesus Christ our Lord, before all ages, now and
forevermore! Amen.
-- Jude 1:24-25


THOUGHT:
What a great cluster of truths are found in this one prayer of
blessing. Our eyes are first drawn to what God can do for us --
prevent us from falling and present us before his glorious presence
in joyful perfection. But on closer inspection, our hearts are
drawn to the description of our incredible God: the one who is
able, the only God, our Savior, the one who lives in glory and
majesty and power and authority, the one who has communicated to us
through Jesus our Lord, and the one who exists before all ages and
who is alive now and who will be forevermore. Our blessings as
God's children are incredible, but the reason why they are is that
our God is beyond incredible, awesome, and wonderful. Our words
cannot do him justice. Our brightest insights cannot comprehend the
glory he has. Yet despite his grandeur, he loves you and me in our
finite mortality!


PRAYER:
Awesome and Holy Lord Most High, thank you for not only being
God, but for loving me and showing yourself to me in the face of
Jesus. I look forward to standing in your presence, enjoying your
shared perfection, and praising your glory with the angels. Please
accept my limited and human praise until the day my words are
unchained from their mortality and my imperfections are swallowed
up in your glory. In Jesus' name. Amen.

VERSE:
For you have been born again, not of perishable seed, but of
imperishable, through the living and enduring word of God.
-- 1 Peter 1:23


THOUGHT:
Words are powerful! They can maim, wound, and debilitate. They
can also bless, encourage, and inspire. When those words are God's
Word, they are even more important. God's Word -- the Scriptures,
the Gospel -- is not only truth, but it is life! Alive and
enduring, God's Word imparts life to us and gives us his message of
eternal life. It tells us of his grace and teaches us how we can be
born again. Let's not take it for granted ... or neglect its
message ... or remain silent about its truth.


PRAYER:
Almighty and Eternal God, thank you for speaking to us through
human words. Thank you for your Gospel that gives us the message of
Jesus and your salvation for us in him. Please fuel my hunger to
know your Word more fully and to live it more completely. Thank you
for giving me a source of truth that is reliable, stable, and
enduring. In the name of Jesus, your living Word, I pray. Amen

January 22, 2012

VERSE:
Once you were alienated from God ... but now he has reconciled
you by Christ's physical body through death to present you holy in
his sight, without blemish and free from accusation.
-- Colossians 1:22


THOUGHT:
"Christians aren't perfect, just forgiven!" You've probably seen
this bumper sticker or something similar. In one sense this is
absolutely true. But, from God's point of view, Christians ARE
perfect. That's the incredible message Paul gives the Colossians.
Because of Jesus' sacrifice, God does not see our imperfections. He
sees us through Christ's perfection. Look at these concepts and
marvel! Look at how God views you and give thanks! Be humbled by
God's grace to us in Jesus and rejoice! Holy, without blemish, and
free from accusation -- there's nothing left to say but
"Hallelujah! "


PRAYER:
Father, thank you for providing the sacrifice that makes me
clean. Thank you for seeing my worth through the perfection of
Jesus and his sacrifice. Thank you, Lord Jesus, for paying off my
debt to sin and for sharing your perfection with me. May my life
today, and everyday, more closely resemble the perfection you have
given me by your grace. In the name of my Savior Jesus, I pray.
Amen.

VERSE:
See, the LORD your God has given you the land. Go up and take
possession of it as the LORD, the God of your fathers, told you. Do
not be afraid; do not be discouraged.
-- Deuteronomy 1:21


THOUGHT:
A word of encouragement is indispensable at the start of a new
journey, especially when the journey demands your leadership.
Joshua is no longer second chair. He is no longer the backup to
all-pro Moses. Now it is his turn to lead. The people he leads have
only known the leadership of the incomparable Moses. How will he
lead? He will lead trusting the promises of God and without fear or
discouragement! How is this possible? Because the real leader of
God's people hasn't really changed! God is still God. His word is
still true. His promises are still trustworthy. His might is still
all-powerful.


PRAYER:
O God, as I face increasing responsibilities and greater
challenges, remind me of your promises, allay my fears, strengthen
my resolve, and lead me by your will. May the victories in which I
participate always bring glory and honor to you. In the name of the
Lord Jesus Christ I pray. Amen.

VERSE:
For since the creation of the world God's invisible qualities --
his eternal power and divine nature -- have been clearly seen,
being understood from what has been made, so that men are without
excuse.
-- Romans 1:20


THOUGHT:
What an incredible world we live in! The expanse of space is
humbling. The majesty of the mountain peaks takes away our breath.
On and on we could go, describing all the beautiful, magnificent,
and awe-inspiring wonders of the universe. The variety, the order,
the symmetry, and the unexpected all testify to God, the Genius
behind it all.


PRAYER:
O LORD, Almighty God, your works of creation bedazzle me with
your incredible sense of majesty, grace, wonder, awe, and beauty.
Thank you for making your fingerprints so clearly seen in our
incredible world. In Jesus' name I praise. Amen.

January 19, 2012

VERSE:
I pray ... also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened
in order that you may know ... his incomparably great power for us
who believe. That power is like the working of his mighty strength,
which he exerted in Christ when he raised him from the dead...
-- Ephesians 1:17-20


THOUGHT:
I still don't understand resurrection. I get the concept. I
believe God did raise Jesus. Every once in a while, I experience
that power through the Spirit's work in my life strengthening me
for ministry, helping me love others in tough situations,
comforting me when I'm broken, giving me insight when I study the
Word, and strengthening me in the face of temptation. I am humbled,
thrilled, and left longing for more. I want others I love to
experience this awesome power. I'm sure it's the same with you. So
let's join together today, thousands of us all around world, and
let's pray for God to empower those closest to us to discover his
power and to do great things through his Spirit who lives in them.


PRAYER:
Loving God, Almighty Father, please empower me today to live for
you in glorious and wonderful ways. But Father, I don't just pray
that I may do this, please empower those that I love to live for
you. (Add the specific names of folks you want God to bless in this
way.) May we all know that the power in us tore away the bars of
death that held Jesus captive. May we experience this transforming
power and use it to your glory. In Jesus' name. Amen.

VERSE:
For you know that it was not with perishable things such as
silver or gold that you were redeemed from the empty way of life
handed down to you from your forefathers, but with the precious
blood of Christ, a lamb without blemish or defect.
-- 1 Peter 1:18-19


THOUGHT:
A: "How much did it cost?" B: "What? This old thing? This sack
of bones and blood and brain? This heart and mind and soul that
live inside?" A: "Yeah! How much did it cost?" B: "It cost the
greatest gift of heaven to redeem it and make me whole. That's how
much God thinks of me. Incredible, isn't it?!"


PRAYER:
Father, I am bewildered, humbled, and thrilled to know that you
value me so highly. Forgive me for cheapening myself with sin, for
dwelling on things that are petty, and for chasing after things
that are worthless. Thank you for loving me so. By your Spirit,
please help me live up to the value you see in me and aspire to the
lofty life you call me to live. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.

Learn to do right! Seek justice, encourage the oppressed. Defend

-- Isaiah 1:17


THOUGHT:
"A man's got to take care of himself!" Yeah, we do have to be
responsible folks. But, part of being responsible, part of being
blessed -- at least as God sees it -- is to care for others, to
stick up for the disadvantaged, and to intervene when someone else
is being exploited. After all, we are our "brother's and sister's
keeper!"


PRAYER:
Remove the heart of selfishness, O God, that keeps me from
caring for the downtrodden, abused, forgotten, and broken. Give me
your eyes of concern and Jesus' heart of compassion to see them and
minister to them. In his name, the Lord Jesus Christ, I pray. Amen.

Ruth replied, "Don't urge me to leave you or to turn back from
you. Where you go I will go, and where you stay I will stay. Your
people will be my people and your God my God."
-- Ruth 1:16


THOUGHT:
This beautiful statement of loyalty makes its way into thousands
of weddings each year. Incredibly, this wasn't originally a pledge
of a bride or groom. Instead, it was the pledge of Ruth to her
mother-in-law -- some would call her an ex-mother-in- law since
Ruth's husband, Naomi's son, had died, but Ruth never treats Naomi
as an "ex" of any kind. God loves loyalty and bestows his blessing
and favor when we are loyal to others. In an era where people are
thrown away as readily as paper plates and napkins, let's remember
that loyalty is a quality that God not only loves, but it is also a
quality that he defines for us in Jesus. So let's see loyalty to
friends, to family, and to other followers of Jesus as a crucial
commitment.


PRAYER:
Almighty and faithful God, thank you for your loyalty to your
covenant promises to Israel. Thank you for not giving up on your
people or your promises despite the fickleness and unfaithfulness
of your people. Bless us today as we seek to be a loyal and
honorable people, your true children in a turbulent and treacherous
world. May the light of faithfulness that is seen through us beckon
others to find stability and hope in your grace and in your people.

TODAY'S VERSE from HEARTLIGHT
January 15, 2012

VERSE:
To the pure, all things are pure, but to those who are corrupted
and do not believe, nothing is pure. In fact, both their minds and
consciences are corrupted.
-- Titus 1:15


THOUGHT:
Rust stains, grass stains, blood stains, chocolate stains --
ARGH! Those stains are real nightmares in the laundry room. They
don't just leave a stain on the surface of the fabric, but they
also leave a residue that infiltrates the fibers of our clothes.
Evil is that way. We must not kid ourselves. Evil corrupts and
leaves a residue that corrupts everything it touches, including the
hearts of otherwise decent people. That's why we are urged to stay
far away from evil and avoid its very appearance. That's also why
Jesus died: to not only overcome the Evil One, but to also clean
away the stain and its residue.


PRAYER:
Father, guard my path and give me good Christian friends who
will help guard my life from evil. In addition, dear Father, please
help me as I seek to share the cleansing and liberating power of
Christ with those around me who are caught in evil's destructive
and deceptive grasp. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.

TODAY'S VERSE from HEARTLIGHT

January 14, 2012

VERSE:
[You were marked in him with a seal, the promised Holy Spirit,]
who is a deposit guaranteeing our inheritance until the redemption
of those who are God's possession -- to the praise of his glory.
-- Ephesians 1:14


THOUGHT:
God is true to his word. He keeps his promises. But, that was
not enough for him. He gave us a down payment, a deposit, so we
could be sure of our inheritance and look forward to the full
realization of our salvation. He gave us the Holy Spirit. When God
buys us out of slavery to our mortal bodies and redeems us into our
eternal home with bodies that will not grow old or decay, we won't
need the deposit; we will have the full inheritance. But until
then, until we go to him, isn't it amazing that he makes his home
within us!


PRAYER:
Transcendent and yet ever-near God, thank you for not making me
wait to experience your presence. Thank you for giving me "a
foretaste of glory divine." Thank you for sending your blessed and
promised Spirit to live in me and remind me where my home truly is.
Until the day I see you face-to-face, I want to honor your presence
in my mortal body by living a life that is pure, holy, and a
blessing to others. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.

TODAY'S VERSE from HEARTLIGHT
January 13, 2012

VERSE:
For he has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought
us into the kingdom of the Son he loves, in whom we have
redemption, the forgiveness of sins.
-- Colossians 1:13-14


THOUGHT:
Rescued! Redeemed! Forgiven! Those are the three concepts in
this short passage. But, maybe the most important one of all is
represented by the phrase, "Son he loves." God didn't save us with
a plan, or a message, or a clean and immaculate process. Instead,
he took what was most precious to him and offered Jesus up as our
salvation. The cost was enormous. The love involved was
overwhelming. The result is our greatest gift.


PRAYER:
Almighty God and Loving Father, neither my words nor my deeds
could ever repay the gift you have given me in Jesus. Jesus, my
appreciation for your sacrifice moves me to tears of joyful
thanksgiving. For all that you have done, for all that you have
made me, and for all that it cost you, I praise you and offer my
life as a sacrifice of praise. In your name, Lord Jesus, I offer up
my praise. Amen.

VERSE:
Blessed is the man who perseveres under trial, because when he
has stood the test, he will receive the crown of life that God has
promised to those who love him.
-- James 1:12


THOUGHT:
This beatitude comes from Jesus' brother. He had experienced it
and not just taught it! James knew it was worth "hanging in" and
"hanging on" when his faith was under attack. He affirmed that God
loves us and that he has made incredible promises about what lies
ahead for us. He knew that eventually our period of testing would
be transformed into a time of great blessing. James wants us to
know that God longs to bless us with life! After all, that's why he
sent Jesus. (cf. John 10:10)


PRAYER:
Dear LORD and Father, thank you for all those times that you
strengthened me when I was under attack and sustained me when I was
weary and ready to quit. Write "perseverance" deep within my soul
and give me a spirit of tenacity so that I might serve you no
matter what the outward circumstances of my life may be. In the
mighty name of Jesus I pray. Amen.

TODAY'S VERSE from HEARTLIGHT

January 11, 2012

VERSE:
And a voice came from heaven: "You are my Son, whom I love; with
you I am well pleased."
-- Mark 1:11


THOUGHT:
Shortly after Jesus' baptism, he went to face Satan in a
grueling 40 days of temptation. Remember what Satan's opening words
were? "If you are the Son of God..." Wasn't it great that God had
already reassured him of his relationship before it was questioned?
What do those you love need to hear from you today? You don't know
when their time of trial will come; you just know it will, so go
ahead and reassure them before it's necessary!


PRAYER:
Almighty and loving Father, please help me to say the right
words of love and affection to those whom I love so that when
temptation comes, or when others try to draw them away from me,
they will not doubt my love for them. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.

VERSE:
My son, if sinners entice you, do not give in to them.
-- Proverbs 1:10


THOUGHT:
The real issue isn't "if" but "when"! Our children face
tremendous peer pressure. We do, too! We must help them resist the
enticements of this pressure. Also, we must never tire in resisting
them ourselves.


PRAYER:
O God, I do face temptations and enticements. Please guard my
heart, my life, and my example. Help me be a person of character
and integrity. In addition, please enable me to lead, protect,
guard, and warn my children -- both those who are my children in
the flesh and those in the faith. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.

TODAY'S VERSE from HEARTLIGHT

January 9, 2012

VERSE:
Since the day we heard about you, we have not stopped praying
for you and asking God to fill you with the knowledge of his will
through all spiritual wisdom and understanding.
-- Colossians 1:9


THOUGHT:
Paul wrote these words to the Christians at Colossae, but he had
never been there. Despite his lack of "in person" knowledge, he
ministered effectively to the Colossians. He prayed specifically
for them to better know God and his will for them. What a great
idea! Let's find a mission church (inner city, overseas, hostile
environment) and start praying consistently for that congregation,
asking God to help them know him and his will more perfectly.


PRAYER:
Holy and all powerful God, bless my church family with a deeper
knowledge and appreciation of your nature, character, and grace. In
addition, please bless ___ (add your mission church of choice) with
growth, health, and most of all, knowledge of you. In Jesus' name I
pray. Amen.

TODAY'S VERSE from HEARTLIGHT
January 8, 2012

VERSE:
Do not let this Book of the Law depart from your mouth; 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


THOUGHT:
We need to be reminded, just like Joshua and the Israelites,
that God gave us his Law to be a blessing to his people. The Law
was given to help Israel live the will of God in their daily lives.
If they would live God's way, he promised they would be blessed. In
addition, God is the Creator. He knows the best way for humans to
live in harmony with the principles of his universe. His Law was
not intended to hinder or interfere with the happiness and
experience of his people. Instead, it was to help them prosper and
find success in life. As Paul repeatedly reminds us in Galatians,
we are no longer under Law. But, as we live by the Spirit, the
character that is produced reflects the character of Jesus, the one
who fulfilled the Law and brings us the blessings God has intended
all along. Bottom line: Following God's will and living his
character is a blessing to us!


PRAYER:
Loving Father, thank you for speaking your will in human words
so I can better know how to live for you. I know obeying your will
blesses me and those around me. Empower me with your Spirit so that
your character and grace will be fully realized in my life and my
example. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
