Daily Scriptures 4/4/17

Scriptures: Proverbs 7:1-3 1My son, keep my words, And treasure my commands within you. 2Keep my commands and live, And my law as the apple of your eye. 3Bind them on your fingers; Write them on the tablet of your heart. (NKJV)

Nugget: God’s word & wisdom go hand-in-hand. The more we seek God’s word & the clarity it brings, the more they change us & our hearts. We begin to see things & people through God’s eyes. Yes, some things may take time to understand, but as we look to Him, His promises, & guidance through His word, we have to admit there are days when things get a bit easier.

Are God & His word where you seek wisdom to bind within your heart & mind; or are these coming from elsewhere? There’s nothing like living for God & His word. There’s no way for the ‘changing effect’ not to occur—it’s binding.

Quote: “The best way to gain wisdom is by applying God’s word to your life.” –Dr. James Dobson

Daily Scriptures 3/27/17

Scripture: Ephesians 1:3 Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ. (NIV)

Nugget: We are blessed beyond measure! Even during our toughest days, there is always something & someone to be thankful for. The blessings that God has given us go beyond what we can see & feel. Jesus dying for us was the ultimate gift, but also the most timeless blessing we could’ve received.

I can definitely admit there are days that I struggle with getting out of bed (we’ve all had the Monday ‘blues’), but then I think of all of the blessings that occurred while I slept throughout the night: I slept through the night, in a bed, in a home, & then God even blessed me afterwards! I woke up, clothed in my right mind, & then moved my arms & legs without an issue!

God continues to bless us in every area of our lives. Our blessings reach to heavenly realms! Just watch & see what God can & will do!

Daily Scriptures 3/24/17

Scripture: Romans 1:6 And you are included among those Gentiles who have been called to belong to Jesus Christ. (NLT)

Nugget: We are God’s children & belong to Him! He gave His Son, Jesus, to die for our sins. We definitely know that there are many who wouldn’t do this to demonstrate their unconditional love!

On those days where we feel down & defeated about what’s going on around us, & even the things that are occurring in our own lives, reflect on God’s love & Jesus’ sacrifice for us. With this love on our side, nothing can keep us down & defeated for long!! We are more than conquerors through Him!

Quote: “The world’s love says, “I love you IF”, but God’s love says, “I love you EVEN IF”. -Unknown

Daily Scriptures 3/23/17

Scriptures: Daniel 6:4-5 4Then the other administrators and high officers began searching for some fault in the way Daniel was handling government affairs, but they couldn’t find anything to criticize or condemn. He was faithful, always responsible, and completely trustworthy. 5So they concluded, “Our only chance of finding grounds for accusing Daniel will be in connection with the rules of his religion.” (NLT)

Nugget: Daniel, along with two other administrators, were chosen by the king to lead the empires, but Daniel showed himself more capable than the other two, & the king wanted to promote him to be over the entire empire (the favor of God was on Daniel!). Daniel’s new appointment didn’t sit well with the other two administrators & they plotted against Daniel, looking to find fault in him, when there wasn’t one; however, they decided to attack Daniel based upon his religion.

There are some people who will not be happy for you when you’re promoted, doing well, & moving forward in the blessings God has given you. Most won’t understand that it’s God’s hand, calling, & favor that elevated you to where you are! But while some aren’t happy for you & are looking for fault, God keeps blessing you! In spite of what the administrators plotted for Daniel, Daniel prevailed through God! God was with him the entire time.

If someone isn’t happy for you & want to find fault, that’s their issue—keep walking in God’s favor. No one can take away what God has blessed you with & no one can remove you from where He’s placed you.

Daily Scriptures 3/22/17

Scripture: I Corinthians 13:12 Now we see things imperfectly, like puzzling reflections in a mirror, but then we will see everything with perfect clarity. All that I know now is partial and incomplete, but then I will know everything completely, just as God now knows me completely. (NLT)

Nugget: There are just some things that we won’t find out until later. We worry, stress, & even have anxiety over things that God has already worked out in our favor. While going through these situations, we will have questions & be puzzled about what’s happening & why, but one day, we’ll see ‘everything with perfect clarity’.

There are things that will take time to happen---God’s time. Where we are now isn’t the end of the road, but the path that we must take to get to the clarity & understanding that will only come with time, living, growth, & God working it out.

One day, we’ll know exactly what we’re supposed to know, at that time. God knows us & His plan will be completed for what He has in store.

Quote: “You are where God wants you to be at this very moment. Every experience is part of His divine plan.” -Unknown

Daily Scriptures 3/21/17

Scripture: Isaiah 41:13 For I, the LORD your God, will hold your right hand, Saying to you, ‘Fear not, I will help you.’ (NKJV)

Nugget: There’s nothing like a friend who’ll be there & who has been there with you through thick-and-thin. We all have at least one who’s been there with us no matter what. Not only do we have at least that one person, but we have our God who’s been there with us always. No matter the fear, circumstance, or situation, God’s there holding our hand along the way. He’s not just holding our hand, but walking beside us & will carry us further than we can carry ourselves.

Don’t waste time & energy in fear or worry; God promises to help us & to be there for us.

Quote: “Dear God, Thank you for always holding my hand.” -Unknown

Daily Scriptures 3/17/17

Scripture: Psalm 5:3 Listen to my voice in the morning, LORD. Each morning I bring my requests to you and wait expectantly. (NLT)

Nugget: Anytime is a good time to talk to the Lord, but there’s something about starting the morning off with prayer & time with God. It sets the tone for the day. I think about the days where I started in a hurry, rushing through my morning routine, even saying a quick prayer before heading out the door. Most times, this results in the rest of my morning (& day) feeling hurried.

Not only does this scripture mention talking to God in the morning, but also giving our requests to Him & waiting with expectation! Who else would get up in the morning hours, listen to us, & then bless us too!? No one, but our God!

Don’t forget to make God a part of your morning.
