Today's Good News


02/06          Hebrews 4:16

16 So let us come boldly to the throne of our gracious God. There we will receive his mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it most.


We do not deserve forgiveness and yet it was so important to our Father, God, that we reserve forgiveness that He died for our sin and provided for us the forgiveness of our sin out of His wonderful grace.  He graced us with a new life, eternal life, life like His, simply for the asking- Father forgive me of my sin, come into my heart and save me.  Before we were ever born, His deep love provided the mercy we needed, and His grace provided the salvation we needed.  We have a wonderful Father whose mercy is deep and wide. Thank you, Lord. 




02/05          Romans 8:28

28And 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. 


Two things that are required to lead a God centered life.  First, we must be saved.  We must be in a relationship with the Lord or very little will work out in our life.  Second, we are called to love the Lord.  That means He is first in our life, we spend time with Him and we are seeking to honor and glorify Him.  Once we deal with our relationship and fellowship in a positive way we will find that the Lord’s plan is always bringing us into those things from the Father that bring good to our life.   




02/04          Philippians 4:6-7

6 Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. 7 Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.


I need peace and the Lord says He will give peace to us.  His presence brings peace and His guidance in our life will bring peace with it.  The Lord is gracious in our failures and always victorious in our forgiveness.  Trust in the Lord and He will guard our hearts against fear and unrest.  He is our peace. 




02/03          Psalm 55:22

22 Give your burdens to the LORD, and he will take care of you. He will not permit the godly to slip and fall. 


When we give our burdens to the Lord, then we trust Him to do those things that will stand against our hurt and pain.  We trust the Father to simply do what He says He will do-take care of us. The Lord is good and He will care for us. 




02/02          Psalm 118:6

6 The LORD is for me, so I will have no fear. What can mere people do to me? 


We do not have to go through life with fear.  The Lord will handle our fear.  He will stand with us through a dark time.  He is working out our life plan in our presence.  When we come into the Family of God we have a forever relationship with Him and He is for us, guiding, leading, and watching over us. 




02/01          1 Peter 5:7

7 Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you. 


Our Lord and Father cares for us.  He died for us.  He is with us.  Sometimes we feel left out and on the outside when in fact we are always under the care of our Father.  He loves you. 




01/31               John 3:16

16 “For this is how God loved the world: He gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life. 


We are created to be givers.  We are equipped to give and give and give and yet our hearts in their darkness only want to get, get, get.  Try to be a great giver.  Let the Lord know of your willingness to give all of yourself and all of your stuff and He will use you up. 




01/30               Jeremiah 29:11

11 For I know the plans I have for you,” says the LORD . “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope. 


We cannot see the future.  We do not know what will happen at such and such a time.  Jesus does.  He knows every plan for you and they are each and in total good plans for you.  Trust in the Lord.  Follow Him and He will take you in the right direction.  The Lord is committed to you.  He created you with great and worth.  Turn to Him and He will show you great and mighty things that you know not. 




01/29               Matthew 28:20

20 Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”


Jesus is always with us.  He is with you.  This moment. Every moment.  He knows all about and still declares His great love for you. Trust in the Lord.  Lean upon Him and He will see you through whatever difficulty you face.  




01/28               Isaiah 41:10

10 Don’t be afraid, for I am with you. Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my victorious right hand. 


Fear is the enemy’s weapon.  It challenges our faith in the presence and love of the Lord.  Jesus is Lord and He will never leave us of this we can be sure. Trust in the Lord and He will save you from your fear.  He loves you. He will never leave you.  Trust in the Lord.
