Thoughts for the Day

Thought for Today: What is Faithfulness? Faithfulness isn’t about how much you do, but rather it’s about how much God has you. “I will raise up for myself a faithful priest, who will do according to what is in my heart and mind.” (1 Samuel 2:35a)

Thought for Today: Life and Death The formula is simple: Two births one death; one birth two deaths “Jesus answered and said to him, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.” (John 3:3) “Blessed and holy is he who has part in the first … Read more

Thought for Today: Get Up And Move We have to stop being comfortable where we are and move where God wants us to be. When the believers got comfortable with “church” there in Jerusalem, God brought persecution to get them to fulfill the Great Commission, and go out into the world, starting in Jerusalem, and … Read more

Thought For Today: Jesus’s First Words It’s exciting when you hear a baby’s first words, and we usually end up recording them, either through some recording device or in some sort of memory book. These are important words. Now we know Jesus’ last words on the cross. “Father, forgive them, for they do not know … Read more

Thought For Today: The World’s Only Hope We are living in a world that is going downhill fast. It’s full of trouble and confusion. The problem is that it’s been trying to deal with and solve the problems that have existed from the very beginning. But it is no closer to solving them now as … Read more

Thought For Today: Salvation Through God’s Grace “But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” (Romans 5:8). In a nutshell Paul is saying that God’s grace is free, which is totally opposite of the way most people think. Most believe that they can get … Read more

Thought For Today: God Gave It All God gave His Son, Jesus, for sinners. “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.” (John 3:16) God gave His Word, the Bible, for direction. “All Scripture is God-breathed and is … Read more

Thought For Today: Personalize for Hope Need some hope? To help when you feel down and discouraged take the Bible and personalize it. God’s word, the Bible is God’s love letter to each one of us. So instead of reading it in some detached way that doesn’t relate, attach yourself to the word by putting … Read more

Thought for Today: Holy Spirit or Bust Unless God breaks through with Holy Spirit power, there will be no revival. Either the Holy Spirit will show up in power or the church will lose its light. No amount of marketing will ever replace Holy Spirit filled and directed prayer. As God’s people let’s start praying … Read more

Thought of the Day: Searched by God It’s better to be searched by God than by man. When facing the consequences of his sin, David said, “I am in deep distress. Let us fall into the hands of the LORD, for his mercy is great; but do not let me fall into the hands of … Read more

October 25, 2018

Thought for Today: A True Friend What is the Value of a True Friend? This was brought to my attention as I was looking at the relationship between David and Jonathan. The value of a true spiritual friend is that often times they show greater faith in God’s promises for your life than you do. … Read more

Thought for Today: What A Wonderful World It Would Be Our responsibility for others goes beyond all ordinary standards. Not only are we responsible to do no harm, but also we are also responsible to prevent harm when it is in our power to do so. This is seen in a very simple yet profound … Read more

Thought of the Day: Don’t sell Your Prayers Short Abraham interceded and said, “Let me speak just once more” (Genesis 18:32), and in the end 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 does hear our … Read more

Thought For Today: Judging God’s Grace Judging people based upon their past is to judge that God’s grace isn’t sufficient for their present. Consider the woman who washed Jesus’ feet with her tears. Simon the Pharisee saw only her past and was judging her accordingly. Jesus, however, told Simon to open up his eyes. He … Read more

Thought for Today: Safe In God To his dismay David had mistakenly trusted in his prosperity, but then came reality, only in God can we trust, only in God can we be safe. David had come through a harrowing sickness that just about took his life where all he had come to trust was gone. … Read more

Thought for Today: Hang In There Any of you here? “Have mercy on me, O Lord, for I am weak: O Lord, heal me, for my bones are troubled… My soul also is greatly troubled. I am weary with my groaning; all night I make my bed swim. I drench my couch with my tears.” … Read more

Thought for Today: No Elbow Grease Required Peter Druker, known as the father of American Management, when asked how he became a Christian said, “When somebody first explained grace to me, I realized I was never going to get a better deal.” Everything about the American way of life teaches that you get what you … Read more

Thought for Today: Satan’s Lies, God’s Remedy There are two lies Satan wants us to believe. 1) Just once won’t hurt. 2) Now that you have sinned you are beyond God’s use and might as well enjoy sinning. But this sort of thinking doesn’t coincide with God’s word that says that where sin abounds God’s … Read more

October 11, 2018

Thought For Today: It’s Not About “In” or “From” We’ve all grown up with the story of how God delivered the Israelites from their Egyptian bondage and believe that deliverance from trials is the highest form of good or spiritual blessing. But then there’s another story about three young Jewish men who were tossed into … Read more

Thought For Today: Don’t Short Circuit God Jesus’s coming was God’s Kingdom breaking in on our present reality, and ultimately Jesus gave His life so that this reality can become our own. This is seen in His prayer, “Your kingdom come. Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.” (Matthew 6:10) Unfortunately … Read more
