Good Morning! It’s Sunday and the beginning of a new week. We don’t know what this week will bring, but what whatever the world can throw at us, we already have VICTORY! 1st John 5:4 says, “For every child of God defeats this evil world, and we achieve this victory through our faith.” Folks, Jesus never promised that obeying Him would be easy. But the hard work and self-discipline of serving Him won’t be a burden to those who love Him. Even if your load starts to feel heavy, you can always trust Jesus to help you bear it. Have a great week!
Thoughts From Lamentations 3:22-24
“The faithful love of the LORD never ends! His mercies never cease. Great is his faithfulness; his mercies begin afresh each morning. I say to myself, “The LORD is my inheritance; therefore, I will hope in him!”
Isn’t great that God’s love never ends and He is the God of fresh starts and new beginnings! If you need or want a fresh start, today is the day. As we begin a new month, we get to look forward to a new start. The best way to seek God in the weeks ahead is with a prayer and reading God’s Word. In the words of Paul…
“let the Spirit renew your thoughts and attitudes. Put on your new nature, created to be like God-truly righteous and righteous.”
Thoughts From Psalm 142
As I was reading this morning from Psalms, Psalm 142 and 143 grabbed my attention. King David was crying out “There is no escape for me! No one cares about my soul!” Have you ever felt or feeling that way? That is how King David was feeling when he wrote Psalm 142. But, he knew who to turn too, and so should we. He cried out to God “Hear my prayer, Lord”! “Listen to my pleadings”! “Answer me in Your faithfulness, in Your righteousness”! “Lord, You are my refuge”! “My soul longs for you”! “Bring my soul out of this prison”! “In Your righteousness bring my soul out of trouble”! “So that I may give thanks to Your name!” Folks, is your soul longing for God?
Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
