01/08 1 Chronicles 16:34-36
34 Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good! His faithful love endures forever. 35 Cry out, “Save us, O God of our salvation! Gather and rescue us from among the nations, so we can thank your holy name and rejoice and praise you.” 36 Praise the LORD, the God of Israel, who lives from everlasting to everlasting! And all the people shouted “Amen!” and praised the LORD.
An attitude of gratitude is critical for a spiritual walk that succeeds. We are to be grateful for what Jesus does for us, grateful for where we are and grateful for the people Jesus puts in our life. In all things give thanks for our Savior, the Lord Jesus is in control. He loves us.
01/09 Psalm 103:1-5
1 Let all that I am praise the LORD ; with my whole heart, I will praise his holy name. 2 Let all that I am praise the LORD ; may I never forget the good things he does for me. 3 He forgives all my sins and heals all my diseases. 4 He redeems me from death and crowns me with love and tender mercies. 5 He fills my life with good things.
Never forget what the Lord has done for you. Remember all of the good things. Remember His watch-care as you grew. Remember that Jesus loves you-eternally. He has carved your name in the palm of His hands.
01/10 1 Peter 1:3-5
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, 4 and we have a priceless inheritance—an inheritance that is kept in heaven for you, pure and undefiled, beyond the reach of change and decay. 5 And through your faith, God is protecting you by his power until you receive this salvation, which is ready to be revealed on the last day for all to see.
By faith we live and breathe under His control. By faith we see the relationship we have with Jesus and with the Father. By faith we believe and live under His control. Our faith is the foundation stone that steps us into the presence of the Lord Jesus and the Father based upon their promises in the Word of God and the activity we experience from them in our daily life. Faith is the victory.
01/11 Psalm 51:10
10 Create in me a clean heart, O God. Renew a loyal spirit within me.
Create me Lord Jesus to be a faithful follower with a clean heart and a faithful lifestyle. Jesus is Lord of me and Lord of my life. Praise the Lord.
