11/24 1 Thessalonians 2:1-3
You yourselves know, dear brothers and sisters, that our visit to you was not a failure. You know how badly we had been treated at Philippi just before we came to you and how much we suffered there. Yet our God gave us the courage to declare his Good News to you boldly, even though we were surrounded by many who opposed us. So you can see that we were not preaching with any deceit or impure purposes or trickery.
Speak the truth boldly in a way that is understandable. Tell everyone about the Good News-that the Lord has intervened in our world and saved us. Jesus was looking for you and now you are found. Jesus is Lord.
11/23 Psalm 18:47-50
He is the God who pays back those who harm me; he subdues the nations under me and rescues me from my enemies. You hold me safe beyond the reach of my enemies; you save me from violent opponents. For this, O LORD, I will praise you among the nations; I will sing joyfully to your name. You give great victories to your king; you show unfailing love to your anointed, to David and all his descendants forever.
The Lord is my strength. Joy and peace reigns in my soul the Lord is my strength.
11/22 Psalm 18:42-46
I ground them as fine as dust carried by the wind. I swept them into the gutter like dirt. You gave me victory over my accusers. You appointed me as the ruler over nations; people I don’t even know now serve me. As soon as they hear of me, they submit; foreigners cringe before me. They all lose their courage and come trembling from their strongholds. The LORD lives! Blessed be my rock! May the God of my salvation be exalted!
God’s children stand in the time of trial. Nothing can move them because the Lord Jesus stands in them. Jesus is alive and He is alive in His children. Bless the Lord O my soul and all that is within me. Jesus is my salvation.
11/21 Psalm 18:40-41
You made them turn and run; I have destroyed all who hated me. They called for help, but no one came to rescue them. They cried to the LORD, but he refused to answer them.
The Lord knows who belongs to Him. Do you belong to Jesus? If you do you can cry out in your time of need. Trust the Lord. Turn to Him so that He will be there in your time of need.
11/20 Psalm 18:36-39
You have made a wide path for my feet to keep them from slipping. I chased my enemies and caught them; I did not stop until they were conquered. I struck them down so they could not get up; they fell beneath my feet. You have armed me with strength for the battle; you have subdued my enemies under my feet.
Everything I need to equip me to live a Godly life is available in Jesus Christ. He is God’s everything. We will never go wrong following Jesus. He will not leave us nor will He forsake us. Jesus is different than we are because He knows all things and He brings this knowledge to our relationship. Seek Him and He will guide every step you take. Jesus is Lord.
11/19 Psalm 18:33-35
He makes me as surefooted as a deer, leading me safely along the mountain heights. He prepares me for battle; he strengthens me to draw a bow of bronze. You have given me the shield of your salvation. Your right hand supports me; your gentleness has made me great.
Jesus prepares us to live life to the fullest. He is in us, with us, ahead of us and will be there where we are going when we arrive. We will never be away from Jesus. He will not leave us alone. We do not have to worry or fret for Christ is in control and He is seeking the best for us.
11/18 Psalm 18:31-32
For who is God except the LORD? Who but our God is a solid rock? God arms me with strength; he has made my way safe.
When we give our LIFE to Christ He makes our way safe. Do not fear for tomorrow for it is in the hands of the Father. Do not be disappointed because it seems nothing you want to work out is working out for in Christ we have everything we need. Jesus is Lord and He is Lord of all things.
11/17 Psalm 18:29-30
In your strength I can crush an army; with my God I can scale any wall. As for God, his way is perfect. All the LORD’s promises prove true. He is a shield for all who look to him for protection.
Jesus Christ is perfect. He chose you and it was a perfect choice. He saved you and in Christ you are perfect. Do not be distracted by the passing images of your life. Do not let yourself be sad or depressed when everything gets turned upside down for your life is hid in Christ with God and He is perfect.
11/16 Psalm 18:28
LORD, you have brought light to my life; my God, you light up my darkness.
My world was dark. I was dead in my sin. Christ saved me. His life and light brought me to life. I see because the Lord Jesus is my light. I grow because the Lord Jesus is my life. He lights up my darkness and I can see where to go. Christ is my light.
11/15 Psalm 18:27
You rescue those who are humble, but you humiliate the proud.
I want my life to be marked by an attitude of submission to Jesus. I willing set aside my priorities and let Jesus give me marching orders. When I rise in the morning my first thought is “Lord what do we do today?” I want to embody the life of Christ in everything I do. Submission to the Lord and admission of my weakness to Him will create the environment where I will be teachable and grow in Christ. Lord teach your ways and equip me to be humble.
