July 22 Verse of the Day

Tuesday, September 2nd, 2014

Your word is a lamp for my feet and a light for my path.
Psalm 119:105
Holman Christian Standard Bible

Your word is a lamp to walk by, and a light to illumine my path.
Psalm 119:105
NET Bible

Father, Your Word was given to us as a guide.


A lamp to keep us on the right path in a dark world. A light to show us the next step on the way You would have us go.  Lord, we’re here today to ask for your guidance. Many of us are frightened and insecure when faced with uncertainty.  Remind us, Lord, that there is no uncertainty for us.  You know exactly where we are and where you have planned for us to go.  Sometimes you tell us clearly where to go and sometimes we just trust to take that next step by the light You have given.  So today, Lord, lead us. Bring us to an understanding of Your will and gently nudge us along the path You have marked out for us.

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].



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.


July 7 Daily Verse

Matthew 7: 24-15

“Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock.


It interests me, Father, that hearing what You have to say alone isn’t enough. You need us to put what You say into practice in order for us to be protected from the storms that will come our way. Father, give us the strength and the wisdom to understand Your words and commandments. Father, give us discernment to know what actions to take. Let us know when to take them to best extend Your love to those in need of it. Show us how to make our lives a living example of Your word.

3 John 1:11

Beloved, do not imitate what is evil, but what is good. He who does good is of God, but he who does evil has not seen God.


Father, sometimes we slide into evil almost without knowing it. Sometimes we walk into it without even realizing that we are headed in that direction. As parents, we caution our children against certain things and places just as You have done for us. Keep us grounded in Your word and Your teachings so that we will be aware when we are moving in the wrong direction. Father, we know a little of how You love us because of how we love our children and guide them.  Since we know that, help us obey Your instructions as we wish our children would do with ours.
