September 23 Daily Verse

Sunday, November 18th, 2018

Do not worry about what to say or how to say it. At that time you will be given what to say, 20 for it will not be you speaking, but the Spirit of your Father speaking through you.

Matthew 10:19

 

Father, I can’t thank You enough for reminding me that I have been filled with Your Spirit. I can speak with authority because the words I speak are Your words. Speak through all of us, Father.  Give us the words to say to those who live in this troubled world. When we face adversaries, give us wisdom.   Never let us forget  that we are Your children, loved and protected by You.  Never let us forget that we can stand and speak with confidence because it is  You who are speaking through us.

May 13 Daily Verse

Romans 13:9-10

For the commandments, “You shall not commit adultery,” “You shall not murder,” “You shall not steal,” “You shall not bear false witness,” “You shall not covet,” and if there is any other commandment, are all summed up in this saying, namely, “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” Love does no harm to a neighbor; therefore love is the fulfillment of the law.

 

Father, we know that You are love. We also know that we aren’t able to love as You do. We have trouble seeing past the behaviors of some people. Sometimes what they wear and how they look have us wanting to turn away.  Often attitudes of others toward us simply aren’t lovable. But still You ask us to love. Fill us with the love You want us to have. Work with us to change our attitudes so that we can see people as You do.

1 Peter 2: 1

Therefore, rid yourselves of all malice and all deceit, hypocrisy, envy and slander of every kind.

 

Father, how can we do this? Controlling our words, our thoughts, our anger and desire for revenge is a superhuman task. Would You fill us, Lord, with Your Spirit? Remove all the undesirable traits that make us less like You.

Psalm 51: 10-11

Create in me a clean heart, O God,
And renew a steadfast spirit within me.
Do not cast me away from Your presence,
And do not take Your Holy Spirit from me.

Father, it is our desire to have a clean heart. It is our desire to stand daily as Your representatives in a world that needs to see You. Walk with us, stay with us. Fill us with Your Spirit that we may show Your love and Your goodness to a generation in need of You.
