26May

And, behold, they brought to him a man sick of the palsy, lying on a bed: and Jesus seeing their faith said unto the sick of the palsy; Son, be of good cheer; thy sins be forgiven thee” (Matthew 9:2).

Forgiveness releases God’s love into people’s lives, and sets free those who have been held captive by sin. If there is someone we need to forgive, we should do so today. Not only will it release us from the burden of the offense, it will release them too.

25May

And blessed is he, whosoever shall not be offended in me” (Luke 7:23).

Offense hinders our access to the blessing of God. He does not want us to miss out on all he has planned for us, so we must take care not to allow offense to take root in our hearts.

24May

Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come” (John 16:13).

God will never leave us in the dark. He will show us things to come, and reveal his heart to us through the Holy Spirit.

23May

Wherefore thou art no more a servant, but a son; and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ” (Galatians 4:7).

21May

Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light” (Colossians 1:12).

It is God’s will for us to own everything in the kingdom of God. When we are in Jesus, everything that belongs to the Father belongs to us.

20May

Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning” (James 1:17).

God is the same yesterday, today, and forever. Though circumstances may attempt to change our stance of faith, we should put our trust in God, who is unchanging.

19May

For the eyes of the Lord are over the righteous, and his ears are open unto their prayers…” (1 Peter 3:12).

When we are in right-standing with God, we have a right to get our prayers answered. We can come to him with our requests according to his word, in the name of Jesus, and he is faithful to grant them.

18May

But now the righteousness of God without the law is manifested, being witnessed by the law and the prophets; even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference” (Romans 3:21, 22).

Righteousness is right-standing with God. It is a free gift that is received by faith.
17May

And he said, take heed that ye be not deceived: for many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and the time draweth near: go ye not therefore after them” (Luke 21:8).

In the last days, it will be common for people to be deceived by false gods and erroneous claims. We must not fall prey to this type of error. Instead, we can look to Jesus for answers to life’s questions.

16May

And the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace of them that make peace” (James 3:18).

Deciding to be a maker of peace has multiple benefits. Being a peacemaker invites God into every situation, and it will improve our relationships.

Receiving and allowing the word of God to take root in our hearts will cause the love of God to mature in us. This is the primary indication that we belong to the Lord.

14May

And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us” (Romans 5:5).

The ability to love others as God loves them is within us. We can call on the Holy Spirit to help us love others with the unconditional love of God.

13May

And have no root in themselves, and so endure but for a time: afterward, when affliction or persecution ariseth for the word’s sake, immediately they are offended” (Mark 4:17).

Taking offense robs us of revelation from God’s word. We should not allow it to steal what we have received from the Scriptures.

But thou shalt remember the Lord thy God: for it is he that giveth thee power to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant which he sware unto thy fathers, as it is this day” (Deuteronomy 8:18).

God has empowered us to obtain wealth. If we are to see the manifestations of this, we need to trust and acknowledge him as our only source.

11May

“For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work” (James 3:16).

08May

It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life” (John 6:63).

Words are not just noise, they are spirit. When we speak words, we are literally creating things that will come to pass in our lives.

07May

Then was our mouth filled with laughter, and our tongue with singing: then said they among the heathen, the Lord hath done great things for them” (Psalm 126:2).

This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come” (2 Timothy 3:1).
