Today's Good News


02/20          John 14:8-11

8Philip said, “Lord, show us the Father, and we will be satisfied.” 9 Jesus replied, “Have I been with you all this time, Philip, and yet you still don’t know who I am? Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father! So why are you asking me to show him to you? 10 Don’t you believe that I am in the Father and the Father is in me? The words I speak are not my own, but my Father who lives in me does his work through me. 11 Just believe that I am in the Father and the Father is in me. Or at least believe because of the work you have seen me do. 


He is God.  He and the Father and Holy Spirit are ONE.  Jesus is God’s everything.  Turn to Jesus.  Get to know Him.  He is our Savior.  He introduces us to the Father.  In Him we live and move and are.  Follow Jesus. 




02/19          Psalm 27:1

1 The LORD is my light and my salvation— so why should I be afraid? The LORD is my fortress, protecting me from danger, so why should I tremble? 


Live your life with courage.  The Lord will not forget you.  Live your life without fear for the Lord is on your side.  Trust in Him and He will walk with you.  He will tell you where to go and what to do.  Jesus is Lord. 




02/18          John 14:1-3

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

2 There is more than enough room in my Father’s home. If this were not so, would I have told you that I am going to prepare a place for you? 

3 When everything is ready, I will come and get you, so that you will always be with me where I am. 


Our salvation in Christ is set.  He has saved us and we follow Him.  The victory over evil has been won, and our home in heaven is secure.  Today He calls us to follow Him and not to worry. He is in charge.  He knows what is going on and we can trust Him.  Trust in the Lord and He will do it. 




02/17          Nehemiah 9:17

17 They refused to obey and did not remember the miracles you had done for them. Instead, they became stubborn and appointed a leader to take them back to their slavery in Egypt. But you are a God of forgiveness, gracious and merciful, slow to become angry, and rich in unfailing love. You did not abandon them, 


We ignore God at our own peril.  His love is complete and full and He is seeking our best good.  When we ignore God we walk right into the plot of the Evil One who will then devour us.  Trust in the Lord and seek His face. 




02/16          Psalm 37:28

28For the LORD loves justice, and he will never abandon the godly. He will keep them safe forever, but the children of the wicked will die. 


Love the Lord and you will live.  Refuse to love the Lord and you have chosen to die.  Your choice.  Easy to make. His Word tells us He is faithful and righteous to save us if we ask Him.  You choose. 




02/15          1 Samuel 12:22

22 The LORD will not abandon his people, because that would dishonor his great name. For it has pleased the LORD to make you his very own people.


We have surrendered our lives, our hearts to the Lord.  We belong to Him.  The Lord is pleased to lead, guide and direct us every day.  He loves us with a depth and completeness that we cannot comprehend. We belong to Him. 




02/14          1 John 3:1

1 See how very much our Father loves us, for he calls us his children, and that is what we are! But the people who belong to this world don’t recognize that we are God’s children because they don’t know him. 


Evil seeks to destroy you.  If you are not a child of God, Evil will always seek to misdirect, fool and abuse you. Bend the knee to Jesus and He will destroy Evil.  Refuse to follow the Lord and you will die in your trespasses and sin.  Jesus is the only way to the Father. 




02/13          1 Kings 6:11-13

11 Then the LORD gave this message to Solomon: 12“Concerning this Temple you are building, if you keep all my decrees and regulations and obey all my commands, I will fulfill through you the promise I made to your father, David.  13 I will live among the Israelites and will never abandon my people Israel.” 


Obey the Lord.  Obedience is better than sacrifice.  If you say you will obey and do not do that which you said you would do you have disobeyed the Lord.  Too many think that there intentions count.  The road to Hell is paved with good intentions.  Serve the Lord, know the Lord and you will be close to the Lord. 




02/12          James 1:17

17Whatever is good and perfect is a gift coming down to us from God our Father, who created all the lights in the heavens. He never changes or casts a shifting shadow. 


God is always God.  He is complete, total, unchanging and eternal.  He knows everything.  He loves in a way that is totally beyond our ability to comprehend and yet we can know His love fully in Jesus Christ.  Christ is our Savior, our beloved, and He loves you and me.  Jesus is love.  He loves us. 




02/11          Judges 9:8-11

8 Once upon a time the trees decided to choose a king. First they said to the olive tree, ‘Be our king!’ 9 But the olive tree refused, saying, ‘Should I quit producing the olive oil that blesses both God and people, just to wave back and forth over the trees?’ 10 “Then they said to the fig tree, ‘You be our king!’ 11 But the fig tree also refused, saying, ‘Should I quit producing my sweet fruit just to wave back and forth over the trees?’ 12 “Then they said to the grapevine, ‘You be our king!’ 13 But the grapevine also refused, saying, ‘Should I quit producing the wine that cheers both God and people, just to wave back and forth over the trees?’ 14 “Then all the trees finally turned to the thorn bush and said, ‘Come, you be our king!’ 15 And the thorn bush replied to the trees, ‘If you truly want to make me your king, come and take shelter in my shade. If not, let fire come out from me and devour the cedars of Lebanon.’” 


It’s important to listen to what is happening.  Are you ready to do what must be done?  We are totally unlike God.  His ways are not our ways.  We are to choose carefully and choose with the Lord’s guidance.  Don’t do anything rash.  Be patient and make sure you are listening to the Lord when you make those life changing decisions.
