Thoughts for the Day

Thought For Today: The Power of Prayer We’ve lost sight of the power of prayer. We’ve become jaded to prayer’s power, because we’ve become enamored with the power humanity has seemed to harness from the atom. What we forget, however is that it was God who created the atom. So who really has the power? … Read more

Thought For Today: Use Every Opportunity for God In the parable of the Good Samaritan, when the Samaritan came across a Jewish man that had been mugged, he had compassion and took time along with his own money to care for him. Jesus said this is what it means to love your neighbor as yourself, … Read more

Thought For Today: Don’t Sell Prayer Short Don’t sell your prayers short. Abraham interceded and said, “Let me speak just once more,” Genesis 18:32, and Lot and his family were delivered. The angel said to Lot, “I cannot do anything until you arrive there” (Genesis 19:22). We can be confident that God hears our prayers. … Read more

Thought For Today: Love’s Sacrifice It’s not enough to say you love, there has to be a willingness to sacrifice for that love. “Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends.” (John 15:13)

Thought for Today: You Can’t Saw Sawdust You can’t saw sawdust; it’s already been sawed. You can’t change the past, so quit dwelling on it. Instead start dwelling upon Christ and the future He has for your life. I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which … Read more

Thought For Today: The Right Attitude Our attitude should be the same displayed by Jesus Christ, that of a servant. Then God will exalt us. “Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus, who, being in the form of God, did not consider it robbery to be equal with God, but … Read more

Thought for Today: Questioning God’s Word “Has God indeed said, ‘You shall not eat of every tree of the garden’?” (Genesis 3:1b) Anyone who puts a question mark behind the word of God instead of an exclamation point is being played by the devil. When we question God’s word and stand in judgment of it, … Read more

Thought For Today: What Brings Freedom “And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free … If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.” (John 8:32, 36) Jesus is not only truth personified, but also his teachings are truth and we can trust them. And so, … Read more

Freedom and Integrity “For this is the will of God, that by doing good you may put to silence the ignorance of foolish men–as free, yet not using liberty as a cloak for vice, but as bondservants of God.” (1 Peter 2:15-16) Having integrity is about being open and honest. It’s about being transparent. If … Read more

Thought For Today: Freedom’s Principle of Love “For you, brethren, have been called to liberty; only do not use liberty as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another.” (Galatians 5:13) Our freedom is not to be an excuse or license for self-indulgence; rather our freedom has the responsibility to love others … Read more

Thought for Today: How’s Our Giving? Philip went to Samaria to share the gospel of Jesus Christ (Acts 8:9–25). A man called Simon the sorcerer met him there. Simon was someone of great prominence in Samaria and received his notoriety through the practice of sorcery. Today, Simon would probably be promoting his own “Psychic Friends … Read more

Thought for Today: Repentance Brings Restitution When John the Baptist preached repentance, he said to the Pharisees and Sadducees that there needed to be some physical sign that repentance had indeed taken place. “Therefore bear fruits worthy of repentance” (Matthew 3:8). John the Baptist was saying, “Prove to me by the way you live that … Read more

Thought for Today: Shaken and Awakened God has called us to faithfully discharge the duty of being His witnesses to a lost and dying world. Before the church can arise and shake the world for the Lord, it must bring back the truth of God’s word. The church needs to make the declaration to, “Tell … Read more

Thought for Today: Repentance Brings Refreshment “Repent therefore and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, so that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord” (Acts 3:19). When we compare what Peter just said with what he said in his first sermon, these times of refreshing refer to the … Read more

Thought For Today: Giving God’s Way God has given the church everything it needs to change the world. God is the owner of the cattle on a thousand hills, and while all the gold and silver is His (Haggai 2:8), He’s given it to the church through His saints. The church, however, struggles not only … Read more

Thought For Today: The Bible: Like No Other There are also those who doubt what the Bible says because of perceived discrepancies. But the benefit of the doubt should be in favor of the Bible, rather than those who cite contradictions thousands of years later. And over the last century, there have been many objections … Read more

Thought For Today: A Humble Spirit Needed While we have kingdom business to perform, we’re still servant of the king. Therefore, let’s not think more highly of our work or ourselves than we ought. While John the Baptist was a mighty prophet and herald of the coming Messiah, he still wasn’t worthy to unlace Jesus’ … Read more

Thought For Today: Waiting in Integrity “How long must I wait?” (Psalm 119:84) This is the cry of the Psalmist. His hope is in the Lord and the promises of His word, but He’s about at the end of His rope. “My eyes are straining to see your promises come true. When will you comfort … Read more

Thought For Today: A Christian’s Facade A façade is a superficial appearance or an illusion of something that it’s not. In my trips through Nevada I’ve seen many façades. They are often found in small roadside cafés or casinos. If you look at the front they look like their new, updated, and thriving. But once … Read more

Thought For Today: A Hatred for Sin Because God is holy He hates sin. Concerning the sins committed by Israel, the Lord said, “All these are things that I hate.” (Zachariah 8:17b) The more we grow in holiness, the more our hatred for sin will grow. In Psalm 119:104 the Psalmist said, “Your commandments give … Read more
