July 23 Verse of the Day

1 Thessalonians 5: 16 – 18
(NET Bible)

Always rejoice, constantly pray, in everything give thanks.  For this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.

Father, sometimes when our tears fall or our pain is intense, we can’t see where You are taking us.

Sometimes – almost every time – we overlook the fact that this is the will of Your Son concerning us and anything that is Your will can only bring us good. We know this but still we hurt and still we cry. Come to us in our need and while we pray. Where it is not possible for us to have joy, give us Your joy.  Where peace is lacking, send peace.  And in everything, Lord, we will give You all thanks for no one can love us as You do.

Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy-laden and overburdened, and I will cause you to rest. [I will ease and relieve and refresh your souls.]



There are many of us who feel the struggles of daily living. We are dealing with issues that cause depression and, further, cause rifts in our relationships with others.  Father, we need Your rest.  We need You to refresh our souls.  Come.  Hold us close.

Jeremiah 12:1

Righteous are You, O Lord, when I plead with You;  Yet let me talk with You about Your judgments.
Why does the way of the wicked prosper?
Why are those happy who deal so treacherously?


Lord, even Your prophets didn’t always know why.  Sometimes we don’t know why either.  Our loved ones hurt and, Lord, we hurt with them.  Lord, we accept that all things are in Your hands and that You are looking toward our good. Hold us up when we are surrounded by circumstances we just don’t understand.  Fill us with Your love.  Bring us Your joy because, sometimes, we can’t find it for ourselves.

Romans 8:28

And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.


Lord, so often circumstances seem so unfavorable to us. Illness comes,  finances trouble us, our relationships with our family members isn’t always what we want it to be.  Lord, may we remember that at all times our lives are in Your hands. Help us to be comforted in the knowledge that whatever is happening today is planned by You for our good. We cannot always see the good but You can. Let us rest in that knowledge.

Your present circumstances don’t determine where you can go; they merely determine where you start.
Nido Qubein


Don’t allow circumstances to keep you from believing in your goals and pressing toward them.

Always keep your goals firmly in mind. Put pictures of them on your walls and in your heart.  Remind yourself of where you are going when the tough times try to get you down or the rat race tries to discourage you.

You may not get where you want to go tomorrow or even next week. But keep taking one step at a time. You WILL get there.
