Psalm 146:3 ‘Do not put your trust in princes, in human beings, who cannot save.’ Sometimes we put our trust in the wrong places. The Lord is the only One who can truly save us. Let us not be distracted by other sources of help’.The Lord is the source of our needs and we must look to Him with expectation. PRAYER: Lord, forgive me for thinking that other people can solve my problems when You are the only One to whom I can really turn. I place my trust and confidence in You. In Jesus’ Name, Amen
“You will be a crown of splendor in the Lord’s hand, a royal diadem in the hand of your God” (Isaiah 62:3) If there has been a time when people looked down on you, I have good news for you, God sees you as a crown of splendor in His hand. He will honor you, for the Lord delights in you. God says, “You are precious and honored in My sight” (Isaiah 43:4). Today, shake off the dust of unreasonable criticism, low self-esteem and fear of failure and lift up your head, you don’t have to be bowed down anymore. You are purchased by the blood of Christ, you are the child of the living God, loved and honored by Him.
Do not accumulate for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal. But accumulate for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy, and thieves do not break in and steal.
1 Peter 2:9 ‘But you are a chosen people…’ – You have been chosen by God Himself and His hand is on you. – You have been chosen by God to fulfil a special purpose and plan. – You are not here by accident or by fate. – You are here for such a time as this and the Master needs you.
PRAYER: Lord, thank You that You have a plan and purpose for my life. You have chosen and hand-picked me to do what You have prepared for me to do. Help me to fulfil the purpose You have for my life. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
God’s children walk the pathway filled with trials and heartaches. God’s faithful ones are those who know that no matter how tough the challenge, their God is stronger and would not leave His own. Whatever you are going through today, God sees you. Not in some impersonal way but up close… And if you are in pain or agony, your cry rings in God’s ears. He knows what your pain feels like. He feels it, too. And at the perfect moment He will arrive to rescue you. He’s promised!
Meanwhile, He is transforming you, strengthening you, purging you and beautifying you into His own image.
…we are being transformed into His image with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit. 2 Corinthians 3:18
