Verse of the Day – July 28

Isaiah 1:2 (NET)

Listen, O heavens, pay attention,  O earth! For the Lord speaks:
“I raised children, I brought them up, but they have rebelled against me!


You are the only perfect parent and, yet, even You have children who rebel against You just as we do.  You know the pain of parents whose children are rejecting them, their advice, their lifestyles,  their values, everything. You love us even more fully than we can love our children. You know the pain and anguish we are feeling.

Thank you, Lord, for letting us know this.


July 24 Verse of the Day

“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.

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.


June 29 Daily Quote

The Bible tells us to love our neighbors, and also to love our enemies; probably because generally they are the same people.
– Gilbert Chesterton


If the neighbors are driving you crazy,  remember that you aren’t alone. You’re probably driving them crazy, too. Try to allow those you must live near the right to their faults. After all, you have yours. I’m not saying to overlook illegal or dangerous behavior but cars parked in front of your house and children playing too loudly outdoors are minor inconveniences.  The paper plates blowing into your yard from the birthday party yesterday don’t take that much effort to pick up.  Hopefully, they’ll feel the same way about the garbage can your dog knocked over.

Love your neighbors.

I like not only to be loved, but also to be told I am loved.
George Eliot

Today is a good day to find those you love and remind them that you love them. As a matter of fact, any day is a good day to do that.

1 John 1:9

If we confess our sins,  He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.


We want to thank you, Father, for Your forgiveness.  We have so often broken Your commandments. We haven’t walked as You wanted us to. Sometimes we have completely walked away from You but always You welcome us back. Forgive us our sins. Guide us from this day forward in the path You would have us take. Never lose sight of us, Lord.

1 Chronicles 22: 12

Only may the Lord give you wisdom and understanding.


Father, we ask for Your wisdom each day as we encounter those who need You.  Help us to understand their needs and reach out to them with the help they need.  Speak through us the words they need to hear. Help us to share with them the wisdom and understanding You have given us.

Galatians 6:2

Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.


Lord, we can not always be near enough to help lift the burdens of others but we can always remember that You are near.  Lord, bring to our minds those who need You so that we may pray for them.  When others are hurting, lift them up. When they are ill, heal them. When they are confused, give them guidance.  When they are taking wrong steps, lead them back to Your path. And, always Lord, remind them of Your love.

May we, as Your representatives, be there for those around us.  May we be wise enough to see their burdens and know how best to help carry it for them.

1 John 3:17

But whoever has this world’s goods, and sees his brother in need, and shuts up his heart from him, how does the love of God abide in him?


Lord,  the world sees us and knows we have all we need because You have provided for us.  Many of them have needs.  We fail to share the abundance you have provided to us.  Lord, in doing so, we give them cause to criticize You.  Help us keep in mind that You have promised that You will provide. We don’t need to hoard what we have.  We need to give as you gave to us.
