June 15 Psalm 22:4-5
4 Our ancestors trusted in you, and you rescued them. 5 They cried out to you and were saved. They trusted in you and were never disgraced.
When we place our trust in the Lord Jesus we can have confidence that He will see us through all of our life. Jesus is the great shepherd and He is intimately involved and concerned about your life. Call upon Jesus and He will never forsake you. Trust in the Lord.
June 14 Deuteronomy 23:21-23
21 “When you make a vow to the LORD your God, be prompt in fulfilling whatever you promised him. For the LORD your God demands that you promptly fulfill all your vows, or you will be guilty of sin. 22 However, it is not a sin to refrain from making a vow. 23 But once you have voluntarily made a vow, be careful to fulfill your promise to the LORD your God.
Be careful what vows you make to the Lord. Live your life quietly and under His control. Jesus cares for you and He is most interested in equipping you to live in the light of His love and direction. If you make a vow, write it down and follow through. Put today’s date when you the vow, and when you complete it be sure to write down the date of your fulfillment. The dullest pencil is brighter than the sharpest mind. Live a careful life.
June 13 Numbers 30:2
2 A man who makes a vow to the LORD or makes a pledge under oath must never break it. He must do exactly what he said he would do.
Follow the Lord. We committed to Him to be our Savior and eternal leader now live like it. Do everything in the light of His love for you, your salvation and the fact that the Lord is faithful. He will never leave you.
June 12 Revelation 14:12
12 This means that God’s holy people must endure persecution patiently, obeying his commands and maintaining their faith in Jesus.
We are called to endure by Jesus. He loves us and is committed to us therefore we can have confidence that our endurance will culminate in a stronger faith in Christ. As Jesus ministers to us in the midst of our endurance He demonstrates His deep love for us as He walks through the trial with us. He is here. Jesus loves you.
June 11 Revelation 13:10
10Anyone who is destined for prison will be taken to prison. Anyone destined to die by the sword will die by the sword. This means that God’s holy people must endure persecution patiently and remain faithful.
We are called to endure to the end. Pay attention for that means that in this world we will have trouble, trouble, and more trouble. Chaos and pain will dog our steps. Sometimes it doesn’t seem fair but in fact this life is but a breath and then we will put on the eternal. Live life gently knowing that this is not the end.
June 10 Hebrews 10:36
36 Patient endurance is what you need now, so that you will continue to do God’s will. Then you will receive all that he has promised.
We are called to stand with the Lord. We endure patiently whatever stones and arrows the world throws at us for we know that He will take care of us. If we stand with the Lord we will not forget whom we belong to and what He has called us to do. Jesus is Lord and we are seeking to serve Him.
June 9 2 Timothy 2:11-13
11This is a trustworthy saying: If we die with him, we will also live with him. 12 If we endure hardship, we will reign with him. If we deny him, he will deny us. 13 If we are unfaithful, he remains faithful, for he cannot deny who he is.
Jesus is faithful. Once you accept Him as Lord and Savior nothing will ever separate you from Him. He is Lord, and king and desires that you know Him as fully as you are willing. Trust in Jesus and He will never leave you.
June 8 1 Thessalonians 5:17
17 Never stop praying.
Pray every day. Pray for others. Pray for yourself. Pray for your day. Pray for healing of those around you. Pray that you will be able to communicate the Gospel. Pray for wisdom and knowledge. Pray for the lost. Pray for your family. Pray, pray, pray for you never get beyond the need for prayer. Pray!
June 7 1 Thessalonians 5:5-6
5 For you are all children of the light and of the day; we don’t belong to darkness and night. 6 So be on your guard, not asleep like the others. Stay alert and be clearheaded.
There is no such thing as darkness for darkness is simply the absence of light. Light shines in the darkness whether a pinprick of light or blinding light. You choose to walk in the light as He is in the light. Follow Jesus and you will never stumble in the darkness. Jesus is Lord.
June 6 Romans 12:14-16
14 Bless those who persecute you. Don’t curse them; pray that God will bless them. 15 Be happy with those who are happy, and weep with those who weep. 16 Live in harmony with each other. Don’t be too proud to enjoy the company of ordinary people. And don’t think you know it all!
We live in a world that rewards arrogance and penalizes humility. You choose to be humble and follow Jesus. You choose to set aside your pride and bend the knee to the Lord’s Word. Be humble and the Lord will give you the wisdom and knowledge you need to navigate the chaos and difficulty of this life and greater blessings in the life to come.
