1 Peter 2:16
Live as people who are free, not using your freedom as a cover-up for evil, but living as servants of GOD. (ESV)
I have chosen the way of truth; I have set my heart on your laws. I hold fast to your statutes, O LORD; do not let me be put to shame. I run in the path of your commands, for you have set my heart free.
2 Corinthians 3:17
Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.(NIV)
John 8:32 and 36
“And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” (NKJV)
“Therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed.” (NKJV)
Oh yes, you shaped me first inside, then out; you formed me in my mother’s womb. I thank you, High God—you’re breathtaking! Body and soul, I am marvelously made! I worship in adoration—what a creation! You know me inside and out, you know every bone in my body. You know exactly how I was made, bit by bit, how I was sculpted from nothing into something. Like an open book, you watched me grow from conception to birth; all the stages of my life were spread out before you. The days of my life all prepared before I’d even lived one day. (Psalm 139:14-16 MSG)
Pray: Thank you GOD for making me. You know everything about me and have made me special. I am marvelously made!
“I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth.” (3John 1:4)
Pray: Our Creator FATHER GOD in Heaven, help fathers to make wise decisions that will bless their children’s future for that which glorifies you.
Doesn’t everyone want to be happy and loved? GOD loved His people and wanted them to live happy, healthy, worthwhile lives that were faith-filled. He called Moses to the top of Mount Sinai, where He wrote His rules for living on two stone tablets. These rules are known as the Ten Commandments. (Read Deuteronomy 10:1-5). Take time today and notice how these Ten Commandments are used as a basis for many of our laws and ideas of right and wrong. These timeless commandments show GOD’S unchanging love for all His children and that includes you.
Pray: Thank you GOD for loving me and wanting me to live a happy, healthy, faith-filled, worthwhile life. Help me to obey your rules for living.
When our lives are lived in obedience to GOD’s will, nothing is impossible. Dream BIG — but Dream BIBLICALLY!
Excerpt from David Jeremiah devotional “Ever Faithful”
The BIBLE is the most important book because it is the true, living HOLY WORD of GOD. The Bible tells us that “GOD-breathed” or inspired through the hearts and minds of the people who wrote the BIBLE. There is no other book like the HOLY BIBLE. It contains 66 books, written by different people over approximately 2,000 years.
The BIBLE is the Living, Active Word of GOD. It’s full of real true-life stories of adventure, kings, queens, angels, prophets, good people, bad people, love, songs, prayers, letters and even predictions of the future.
The Greatest Story of all in the BIBLE is about JESUS, GOD’s one and only Son — who came to earth to save the world. The BIBLE is GOD’s special love letter to us!
Pray: Thank you GOD for Your special love letter to us, The BIBLE. Help me to study, memorize and obey what you have said.
Happy thoughts produce Happy feelings and attract Happy life experiences.
Bible says: But what people say with their mouths comes from the way they think; these are the things that make people unclean. (Matthew 15:18 NCV)
The Bible also tells us we should focus our thoughts on good things which produces peace of mind. It says: Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are honest, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. (Philippians 4:8 NKJV)
PRAY: GOD help me to think good happy thoughts.
STAY POSITIVE because GOD is for you; GOD will help you; GOD is working a good work in you.
BIBLE says: And I am certain that GOD, who began the good work within you, will continue His work until it is finally finished on the day when CHRIST JESUS returns. (Philippians 1:6)
PRAY: Thank you GOD that You want the best for me. Help me to stay positive even when things seem negative.
HALLELUJAH is the Hebrew which means Praise the LORD!! So whenever we say or sing Hallelujah, we are admitting and recognizing the greatness and goodness of GOD. It is always a good thing to Praise the LORD. HALLELUJAH!!
“Praise the LORD, because HE is good. Sing praises to HIM, because it is pleasant.” (Psalm 135:3)
