Today's Good News


July 15                        Romans 8:28

28 And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them. 


The Lord is involved with our life, all of our life.  His relationship with us is based upon His love for us and our willingness to let Him have control of our life.  Surrender you life to Him and He will bring peace and joy to your life. 




July 14                        Psalm 84:11

11 For the LORD God is our sun and our shield. He gives us grace and glory. The LORD will withhold no good thing from those who do what is right. 


We are seeking to become a person that knows first-hand that what the Lord wants for our life is the best thing we can have.  He knows all things and everything about us.  Trust in the Lord and know that He is good and everything He does is good. 




July 13                        Psalm 84:1-2

1 How lovely is your dwelling place, O LORD of Heaven’s Armies. 2 I long, yes, I faint with longing to enter the courts of the LORD . With my whole being, body and soul, I will shout joyfully to the living God. 


There is a longing in our heart for the permanence of Heaven.  One day we will stand before the Lord and we will know Him face to face.  Heaven is going to be a great place.  Our experience here on Earth will be no more and we will be citizens of the Lord’s city. We will be with Jesus forever. 




July 12                        Isaiah 55:8-9

8 “My thoughts are nothing like your thoughts,” says the LORD. “And my ways are far beyond anything you could imagine. 9 For just as the heavens are higher than the earth, so my ways are higher than your ways and my thoughts higher than your thoughts. 


Don’t worry.  There are times we will not understand what is going on and will not be able to piece it into a good scenario.  Remember trust the Lord, don’t worry and He will do it.  The Lord is on our side and He is working things out for our good. Sometimes it simply takes time to work out those things.  I’m reminded of a friend that prayed with me several times a week twenty years ago. He had lost his family, his business, his standing in the community and his plea to the Father was to remake his life. It’s taken twenty years and many heartaches but he is now a respected community leader and everyone in his family turns to him for help and advice in times of trouble.




July 11                        Proverbs 3:5-6

5 Trust in the LORD with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. 6 Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take. 


Sometimes we just have to wait for the Lord.  He knows the right time and place for whatever we need to do.  Trust the Lord and wait upon His guidance and He will do it. 




July 10                        John 14:13-14

13 You can ask for anything in my name, and I will do it, so that the Son can bring glory to the Father. 14 Yes, ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it! 


Talk with the Lord. Tell Him of your needs.  Tell Him everything you need.  Talk with the Lord. 




July 9                          John 14:6

6 Jesus told him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me. 


The way to the Father is exclusive, it is only through Jesus that we can come to the Father.  God decided that He would provide one way to family membership and that was in His Darling Son Jesus. 




July 8                          John 14:1

1 “Don’t let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God, and trust also in me. 


We are called to have a firm belief in the reliability, truth, ability and strength of the Lord God, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit.  The are living and alive in our life.  Relax because you can trust the Lord. 




July 7                          Isaiah 26:12-13

12 LORD, you will grant us peace; all we have accomplished is really from you. 13 O LORD our God, others have ruled us, but you alone are the one we worship. 


It is not the Lord and something else.  It is the Lord alone that we worship.  It is the Lord only who can guide our path day by day.  Spend time with Him.  Get to know Him.  He will show you the way. 




July 6                          Isaiah 26:4

4 Trust in the LORD always, for the LORD GOD is the eternal Rock. 


Our life is sure.  Jesus is alive.  He is alive in us.  The Lord has His eye on you.  He will never leave you nor forsake you.  Jesus loves you.  He has already won the victory.
