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!
JESUS said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” (Matthew 19:14)
Pray: Thank you JESUS that you love children and want them to come to you.
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.
We live in a beautiful, colorful world that has wonderfully amazing things to see, hear, taste and smell. Guess who made it all and in just six days? GOD the Creator made the heavens and the earth. HE made everything out of nothing. Only GOD can do the impossible.
The Bible says: In the beginning GOD created the heavens and the earth. (Genesis 1:1)
Prayer: Thank you GOD for being GOD. Only YOU can do the impossible.
It’s no fun being the one who is left out. The Bible says that “GOD heals the brokenhearted. HE bandages their wounds” (Psalm 147:3)
Remember: GOD is always with you. Talk to Him in prayer. He always listens.
Prayer: Thank You, GOD for always being there for me even when others are not. Your thoughts about me are always good. Help me to care and be kind to others who are left out.
