July 24 Verse of the Day

Wednesday, September 17th, 2014

“Because he loves me”, says the Lord, “I will rescue him; I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name. He will call on me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble. I will deliver him and honor him.” Psalm 91: 14-16

Father. in a world where danger meets us at every turn, we need Your protection. Just everyday living brings turmoil and, often, outright danger to ourselves and those we love. When those times come, Lord, when tornadoes strike, when flooding threatens our homes, rescue us. Protect us in times of trouble.  Deliver us, Lord, from all evil.

Then Jesus said: “Come…”
Matthew 11:28
New Living Translation

Lord, may we always hear and obey when you call us to come. It is astounding that You, who are above all others, would care to call us. But You do. You love us and say “come”. When we are tired, upset, angry, depressed, You call us to come.  You lift those burdens for us. When we are happy, relaxed, calm, serene, You call us to come and let You share in our joy

 

We are so grateful that the King of Kings and Lord of Lords would want to be with us.  Lord, be with us always.  Never let us forget to come.

2 Timothy1:12
New English Translation

I know the one in whom my faith is set and I am convinced that he is able to protect what has been entrusted to me until that day.

Father, how great You are and how thankful we are to know You. You have promised to never leave us or forsake us.  We are confident that no matter where we are, we are never lost. No matter what is happening in our lives, You are there. And no matter how often fear tries to overcome us, we can always be reminded that You are able to protect us and those who have been entrusted to us.

 

We can never give enough thanks or praise for all You do in our lives.

Matthew 15:6 Amplified Bible

So for the sake of your tradition (the rules handed down by your forefathers), you have set aside the Word of God [depriving it of force and authority and making it of no effect].

 

Father,

Our churches – and we individually – have been guilty of setting aside Your Word for the sake of our traditions. We have done wrong. We have harmed those whom You love and whom You are calling.

We ask for Your forgiveness, Father. We ask also that You would show us where our traditions are interfering with the work You want us to do.

Give us discernment to live in this world while not being of this world.

Psalm 91:11
Holman Christian Standard Bible

For He will give His angels orders concerning you,
to protect you in all your ways.

Father, We want to thank You for Your love for us. We want to thank You for the care You have taken on our behalf.  Like a loving parent, You have given instructions to Your angels as they watch out for us.  You know each step that we might take and have provided protection. We may not always know why some troubles come to us and we may not know how some circumstances could possibly bring good but You do. And You have seen to it that the angels sent to watch over us have been told how to keep us safe in the middle of turmoil. Thank you.

Matthew 6:33 KJV

Seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

Father, there are many today who would seek You but who have needs that must be met.  They have stresses that interfere with their ability to see You and Your love for them.  Satan has buried them in grief, poverty, loneliness, anger and so much more.  Father, You have promised to provide if we would just seek Your kingdom and Your righteousness.

Call us to seek You.  Call us to help provide for those in need so that You may extend Your love to them.   May what we do remind them that You long to provide for them. May what we do remind them how much You care.

Genesis 6:8 Amplified Bible

But Noah found grace (favor) in the eyes of the Lord.

 

Lord,  may we live in this world as Noah lived in his. May we be able to stand firm in our faith striving always to walk in Your ways,  even though we may be surrounded by others who do not.  May we, Lord, follow the laws You gave us adhering to the spirit of the law.  Loving others, lifting others, and always praising Your goodness and majesty.

Hebrews 13:16

But do not forget to do good and to share, for with such sacrifices God is well pleased.

 

Lord, we are grateful that you have given us the means to share with others. We may not have a lot but we are thankful that what we have is enough for us and for others who are in need. Help us to remember not to hoard Your blessings for ourselves but to share them with others because that is why You have blessed us in the first place.

John 10:10

I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.

 

Lord, bring us Your life.  Right now we are alive but we don’t have life. People chase happiness and life but it eludes them. Even many of those called by Your name live but need life. Bring us life, Lord. Lift us from depression, sadness and the feeling of futility.

Make us know that our lives are precious to You.
