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.

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.

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.

Correction does much, but encouragement does more.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

 

Correcting your child when they are moving in the wrong direction is an important part of parenting. If your child learns from you that there are consequences for their inappropriate acts, they will be spared the need to learn it later from police and judges. However, it is also important that you don’t forget to praise and encourage them when they are doing well. The praise they receive will almost always lift them up to try even harder to do what is right. Correct them, yes, but never forget to affirm them.

Psalm 62: 1-2

Truly my soul silently waits for God;
From Him comes my salvation.
He only is my rock and my salvation;
He is my defense;
I shall not be greatly moved.

Father, we come daily to You to give you reverence and praise. We thank You for Your protection and love. We thank You that you defend us and that You promise that no weapon formed against us can prosper. We are aware that there will be weapons, Lord. We thank you that you will be there for our defense.

Psalm 24: 1-3

I will bless the Lord at all times. His praise shall continually be in my mouth. My soul shall make its boast in the Lord. The humble shall hear of it and be glad. Oh, magnify the Lord with me and let us exalt His name together.

Father, we just want to thank You. You have daily been with us in all that happens giving us peace when we have conflict. You have sent hope to us when we have been given news not favorable to us. Lord, lift up others as you have lifted us. Bring peace to others who need you. Thank you, Lord, for Your goodness to us.
