“From the fall of a raindrop to the fall of an empire, all is under the providential control of God.” Alva J. McClain
Lord, I pray for the strength to do right when those around me are doing wrong. Amen.
“Ruth the Moabite said to Naomi, ‘Let me go to the fields and pick up the leftover grain'” (Ruth 2:2). Great example here. No self-pity. Ruth wants to do her part to put food on the table. When you don’t know what else to do, trust God and start gleaning!
“The Lord himself goes before you” (Deuteronomy 31:8). Are you worried about next week? Forget it. He’s already there. How about next year? Don’t sweat it. He’s already there. What about that tough decision you face? Fear not. He’s already there.
Give us the mind of Christ that we might love as he loved, serve as he served, and give as he gave for others. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
If you want to go to heaven, the first step is to stop trying to earn your way there. You have to stop trying and start trusting in Jesus.
“A man may study everything else in the world, but if he does not study the Word of God he is not fit for real work for God.” R. A. Torrey
“Without Jesus, we approach life with the expectation of death. With Jesus, we approach death with the expectation of life.” Nabeel Qureshi
Lord, teach me to pray and give me a heart for prayer so that when I am gone, people will remember that I prayed for them. Amen.
“When I consider my unworthiness, fearing He would grow weary of carrying me, I return to this-He did not go through all this to abandon me.” R. C. Sproul, Jr.
We are not condemned because we struggle. The sin is in giving in, not in the fight itself.
Never be ashamed of the blood of Christ. We can’t go to heaven without it.
You don’t have to answer every email or every text or every comment. Think before you hit the Post button. Don’t add to the anger
“Lord, make me an instrument of your peace. Where there is hatred, let me sow love. Amen.”
“A good character is the best tombstone. Those who loved you and were helped by you will remember you when forget-me-nots have withered. Carve your name on hearts, not on marble.” Charles Spurgeon
Lay hold of God’s mercy. There’s plenty to go around. A fresh supply just arrived from heaven this morning.
“Not a burden we bear, not a sorrow we share, But our toil He doth richly repay. Not a grief or a loss, not a frown or a cross, But is blessed if we trust and obey.”
When people ask about the “secret” of God’s will, I tell them it begins when you say, “Lord, let me take the next step with you today.”
Your enemies may have meant it for evil, but God still means it for good. Their malicious hatred cannot overcome God’s faithfulness to you.
It’s better to be faithful and unpopular than cowardly and loved by all.
Sometimes we think, “I wish so-and-so would hear this sermon.” You probably need it more than they do. Take heed to your own soul first.
Lord, thank you for closed doors that kept me from going in the wrong direction. Amen.
“Everyone wants to save the world, but no one wants to do the dishes.” Michael Horton
“His delight is in the law of the Lord” (Psalm 1:3). Your delight determines your direction. Are you eager to hear God’s Word today?00
What will happen in 2020? I don’t know, but I know the One who does know. If God is not worried about my future, why should I worry about it?
