02/11 Romans 11:22
22 Notice how God is both kind and severe. He is severe toward those who disobeyed, but kind to you if you continue to trust in his kindness. But if you stop trusting, you also will be cut off.
This is a simple statement but powerful. We believe in Jesus by faith and trust that He is faithful. We don’t disbelieve in Jesus every time we sin in fact every time I sin the Holy Spirit convicts me of my sin and I confess my sin and live by faith. I never stopped trusting Jesus even though I had sinned. But if I do my own thing and doubt that Jesus could love me I will reap what I have sown in my heart-continued separation from Jesus. My activities don’t make me right or wrong. Trusting in Jesus puts me in a right position with the Lord.
02/10 Romans 10:9-10
9 If you openly declare that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by openly declaring your faith that you are saved.
This is the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ. Believe in Him and you will be saved. Declare this before the world. Remember we don’t make Jesus Lord, He is Lord.
02/09 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.
We are in the hands of the Father. We do not twist and turn on the issue of what we do determining our salvation. We have confessed Jesus as Lord and proclaimed our surrender to Him. He does it all. It is by His grace, not our works, that we are saved. We are in His sure and unyielding hands forever.
02/08 Revelation 3:5
5 All who are victorious will be clothed in white. I will never erase their names from the Book of Life, but I will announce before my Father and his angels that they are mine.
We belong. We belong to Jesus. We belong in God’s family. We belong in spite of what we do because we belong. Why do we belong? Because we have confessed Jesus to be God. He died on the cross and on the third day was resurrected from the dead. Today He is seated at the Right hand of the Father. We belong because of Jesus. He is Lord.
02/07 Proverbs 22:6
6 Direct your children onto the right path, and when they are older, they will not leave it.
We are responsible for the Guidance of our children. Children are a gift from God to us. We are His representative to build their lives as they grow up with us. Raise up a child in the way he or she should go and they will not depart from it. Great thought. A wonderful challenge for us as parents. Praise God for His wisdom and mercy. Help us to raise our children.
02/06 Proverbs 13:11
11 Wealth from get-rich-quick schemes quickly disappears; wealth from hard work grows over time.
Lord thank you for your eternal truth. Your Word speaks to my soul. I am mindful of your wisdom and pray for wisdom each day. Praise the Lord.
02/05 Psalm 86:5
5 O Lord, you are so good, so ready to forgive, so full of unfailing love for all who ask for your help.
Your forgiveness is overwhelming. I am so grateful. I am so needy. Thank you Lord for your wondrous grace and amazing forgiveness.
02/04 Psalm 50:15
15 Then call on me when you are in trouble, and I will rescue you, and you will give me glory.”
Ask the Lord to help you in the midst of your troubles. He will rescue you. Be sure to give him the glory.
02/03 Psalm 37:4
4 Take delight in the LORD, and he will give you your heart’s desires.
Spend time with the Lord, honor and glorify Him and love one another. He will give you your heart’s desire.
02/02 Psalm 34:17
