Today's Good News


01/15 Isaiah 54:17

17 But in that coming day no weapon turned against you will succeed. You will silence every voice raised up to accuse you. These benefits are enjoyed by the servants of the LORD; their vindication will come from me. I, the LORD, have spoken!


The truth is that the Lord is on your side.  Take your troubles to Him and live under His direction.  The Lord is on your side.  Serve Him with gladness.   Rejoice, Jesus loves you. 



01/14 Isaiah 40:3

3 Listen! It’s the voice of someone shouting, “Clear the way through the wilderness for the LORD! Make a straight highway through the wasteland for our God! 


The Lord is coming back.  This prophecy declares His coming and He has come in Bethlehem.  He died on the Cross for us and was raised by the power of God.  He is alive and He is coming back for us one day.  Be ready.  Jesus is coming soon. 



01/13 Isaiah 54:1-5

1 “Sing, O childless woman, you who have never given birth! Break into loud and joyful song, O Jerusalem, you who have never been in labor. For the desolate woman now has more children than the woman who lives with her husband,” says the LORD . 2 “Enlarge your house; build an addition. Spread out your home, and spare no expense! 3 For you will soon be bursting at the seams. Your descendants will occupy other nations and resettle the ruined cities.4 “Fear not; you will no longer live in shame. Don’t be afraid; there is no more disgrace for you. You will no longer remember the shame of your youth and the sorrows of widowhood. 5 For your Creator will be your husband; the LORD of Heaven’s Armies is his name! He is your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel, the God of all the earth. 


Trust in the Lord.  His every thought for you is a thought for good.  This world cannot destroy you for you are in the palm of the Lord’s hand and He has you for eternity.  Do not fear, do not tremble for the Lord is on your side.  He is taking care of you, guiding you and will bring you to a good end.  Jesus loves you. 



01/12 Micah 7:7

7 As for me, I look to the LORD for help. I wait confidently for God to save me, and my God will certainly hear me.


Yes, I live my life in the presence of God.  Yes, He hears me when I pray, when I cry out, when I praise Him, and in all things, I remember Him.  My life belongs to Jesus.  He is my sustainer.  He is my Lord. 


01/11 Revelation 21:5

5 And the one sitting on the throne said, “Look, I am making everything new!” And then he said to me, “Write this down, for what I tell you is trustworthy and true.” 6 And he also said, “It is finished! I am the Alpha and the Omega—the Beginning and the End. To all who are thirsty I will give freely from the springs of the water of life. 


Seek the Lord.  Seek Him now while He may be found.  Spend time with Him.  Listen to Him.  Do everything to cultivate a Godward attitude in your heart.  Love one another and forgive others developing a mindset of giving and the Lord will stand with you as you live your life.  It will be a richer life, a more meaningful life and a life filled with His presence. 


01/10 Colossians 3:9-10

9 Don’t lie to each other, for you have stripped off your old sinful nature and all its wicked deeds. 10 Put on your new nature, and be renewed as you learn to know your Creator and become like him. 


To be renewed we must spend time with the Lord.  It is the Holy Spirit that points out when we are off-track.  The Lord has our best interests in mind and for us to know we have to know Him.  Daily devotionals, regular prayer times and a constancy in conversation with the Lord equips us to hear Him and follow Him better. 


01/09 Ezekiel 11:19-20

19 And I will give them singleness of heart and put a new spirit within them. I will take away their stony, stubborn heart and give them a tender, responsive heart, 20 so they will obey my decrees and regulations. Then they will truly be my people, and I will be their God. 


Listen to the Lord.  He wants you.  Not what you can do but you.  He created you and He will sustain you.  Hear the Lord as He calls you. 


01/08               Romans 5:5

5 And this hope will not lead to disappointment. For we know how dearly God loves us, because he has given us the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts with his love.


How is your day?  Claim His love.  The Holy Spirit will fill your heart with His love if you will let Him.  Claim His love for you. 



01/07               Lamentations 3:22-23

22 The faithful love of the LORD never ends! His mercies never cease.  23 Great is his faithfulness; his mercies begin afresh each morning. 


Today is when I need the intervention of the Holy Spirit into my life.  I’m a struggler, a recovering sinner, self-centered and I need help.  The Lord is faithful and He will give me the help I need. 




01/06               1 Peter 1:3

3 All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. It is by his great mercy that we have been born again, because God raised Jesus Christ from the dead. Now we live with great expectation, 


We live life forward.  There is nothing we can do about the past.  We are now creatures and as such must learn to live with confidence of the Lord’s presence and His willingness to lead us day by day.  Jesus loves you and He is deeply concerned with your life choices and your ability to handle the challenges you face each day.  Our God knows what is going on and how to prepare us to best deal with each obstacle we face.  He is Lord.
