Day 35 of God’s Love

Day 35 of God’s Love for Us December 15, 2017 In your moment of struggle, remember these words, “For a brief moment I forsook you, but with great compassion I will gather you. In an outburst of anger I hid my face from you for a moment, but with everlasting lovingkindness I will have compassion on you,” says the Lord your Redeemer (Isaiah 54:7-8 NASB). The Lord is good, He will test you to strengthen you, and He will discipline you when you think you don’t need Him. If we look at our struggles as discipline, instead of as ‘the Read More

Day 34 of God’s Love

Day 34 of God’s Love for Us December 13, 2017 “Teach me, and I will be silent; and show me how I have erred” (Job 6:24). This should be our daily prayer! Even after Satan took everything away from Job, he said, “But it is still my consolation, and I rejoice in unsparing pain, that I have not denied the words of the Holy One” (Job 6:10). His friend Bildad that came to console him, had this this to say, “Behold, God will not reject a man of integrity (or cast away the blameless); Nor will He uphold the evildoers” Read More

Day 33 of God’s Love

Day 33 of God’s Love for Us December 7, 2017 Why did Jesus Christ die on the cross? I think Paul put it it very plainly in his letter to the Galatians, when he wrote, “It was for freedom that Christ set us free (died); therefore keep standing firm and do not be subject again to a yoke of slavery”(Galatians 5:1 NASB). There were 613 laws for the Hebrews during Jesus’ time. He narrowed that down to “Love God” and “Love your neighbor as yourself.” When He said this, Jesus opened the door for you and I and all the Read More

Day 32 of God’s Love

Day 32 of God’s Love for Us December 1, 2017 “Therefore, do not throw away your confidence, which has a great reward. For you have need of endurance, so that when you have done the will of God, you may receive what was promised” (Hebrews 10:35-36NASB). So we have a bad day, or a bad week, or even a bad year, so what. We shouldn’t throw our confidence and self worth in the trash because of that, should we? No, I don’t think so. God will allow us to be tested, because He wants us to have testimony. He will Read More

Day 31 of God’s Love

Day 31 of God’s Love for Us November 30, 2017 We know that love comes from God. “By this, love is perfected with us, so that we may have confidence in the day of judgement…There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves punishment, and the one who fears is not perfected in love”(1 John 4:17-18NASB). Perfected here has the meaning of moral character becoming perfect. Fear comes from the devil and is the opposite of love. If we love God, then we need to love ourselves. God doesn’t hold grudges against those who Read More

Day 30 of God’s Love

Day 30 of God’s Love for Us November 29, 2017 What is love? Is it just an emotion, or is it something more- an action? Love is a choice, and choice is an action. “Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God; and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God”(1 John 4:7NASB). I heard a pastor say today, “…if you don’t love your neighbor, you don’t love God;” he went on to say, “If you have a problem with someone else (your neighbor), your relationship with God isn’t right.” He derived his statements from Read More

Day 29 of God’s Love

Day 29 of God’s Love for Us November 27, 2017 “These things I have spoken to you, so that in Me you may have peace. In the world you have tribulation, but take courage; I have overcome the world”(John 16:33 NASB). Jesus told this to His disciples before He was betrayed to give them hope through the tribulation that was coming. After that, Jesus prayed, “But now I come to You; and these things I speak in the world so that they may have My joy made full in themselves”(John 17:13). Jesus had told them previously that He was “the Read More
