Verse of the Day for Thursday, August 11, 2022

I rejoice in following your statutes as one rejoices in great riches.
—Psalm 119:14

Thoughts on Today’s Verse…

Our treasure and our truth come from Scripture. Scripture is God’s guidance for us on how to avoid Satan’s harmful traps and to live God’s blessed life. Rather than seeing God’s Word as limiting, we need to see it as a gift of love and to value it more highly than riches.

My Prayer…

Holy God, thank you for your written Word, your people’s Scripture. May your truth come alive in my life just as it does in my heart and mind. In the name of your Son Jesus I pray. Amen.

God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.
—Psalm 46:1

Thoughts on Today’s Verse…

Where can we go when all the walls fall and all the armies crumble and all hope is lost? To the eternal God, who is our Father. He preserved Israel through the most difficult of times, protected the Bible from those who would eradicate it, and has led his Church through troubles and triumphs through the centuries. He will do the same with us until he brings us home to himself.

My Prayer…

My Rock, My Hope and My Protector, I thank you for preserving my life. I thank you for hearing my cries for help and healing. I thank you for guiding my feet into ways that have been a blessing. Please, O God, stay close by as I face the stresses and challenges in my life. Through your Spirit, enable me to grow and be an example to others as I pass through life’s storm. In the name of Jesus, my Savior and Lord, I ask it. Amen.

Are not five sparrows sold for two pennies? Yet not one of them is forgotten by God. Indeed, the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.
—Luke 12:6-7

Thoughts on Today’s Verse…

In a universe so vast, what is our little planet? In a planet so diverse and so full of life, what are simple everyday people? Among all the billions of people alive and who have lived before us, what significance do I have? Jesus reminds us that our significance is great — not because we are so important, but because we are known personally by God. We don’t have to be afraid; we are known and loved by the One who is and was and is to come!

My Prayer…

Eternal God, Almighty Father, Tender Shepherd, you already know my heart. You know where I struggle with sin; please empower and forgive me. You know my fears; please encourage and strengthen me. You know my immaturity; please nurture and mature me. You know my weakness and disease, please comfort and heal me. Holy God, I am both awed and comforted that you know me and love me. Thank you! In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.

Verse of the Day for Monday, August 8, 2022

For the Lord takes delight in his people; he crowns the humble with salvation.
—Psalm 149:4

Thoughts on Today’s Verse…

Jesus left heaven and made himself a servant. He did so to enable the last to be first, the servant to be the greatest, and the least to be the most important. The arrogant, the abusive and the powerful have found it easy to reject the call of Christ for centuries — after all, Jesus died for the sinful and the weak and they’re “important” and have no need for a Savior. However, those who are humble find Jesus to be Savior, Conqueror, King, and Friend. The Lord delights in such people and glad to share his salvation with them.

My Prayer…

Precious Servant and Almighty King, thank you for serving us at great cost and showing us that we can reign with you. I look forward to the day every other knee will join mine as I bow before you as my Lord. Until that day, I pray that you will use me to bless those so often forgotten by our busy and glamour-intoxicated world. To our God be glory and praise for sending you, Jesus my Lord. In the holy name of Jesus I offer my praise. Amen.

The Lord is our judge, the Lord is our lawgiver, the Lord is our king; it is he who will save us.
—Isaiah 33:22

Thoughts on Today’s Verse…

When we think about God’s being our judge, we normally think of falling into judgment. Isaiah reminds us that God’s being our judge means that he will be there to judge us based on his will, his rule, and his grace. He is on our side and is looking to save, not condemn. Using the New Testament idiom, when we stand before our Judge we see instead our Father.

My Prayer…

Holy and Righteous Judge, I am glad that my fate, my future, and my life is in your hands. I know about your love for me because of the gift of Jesus. I know about your desire to save me because of your loving grace. I know your demand for holiness is met by the sacrifice of your Son. So God, I gladly and willingly trust my life, my soul, and my eternal future to you. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.

All your words are true; all your righteous laws are eternal.
—Psalm 119:160

Thoughts on Today’s Verse…

The requirements of morality and holiness are not temporary or fleeting because they reflect the nature of our Holy God who is eternal. They don’t shift with the wishes of culture, but are true across cultures and times and wishes. We do not adapt God’s will to our times, but we redeem our times by adapting our wills to his truth.

My Prayer…

Righteous God Almighty, may my life reflect your character and nature in compassion, holiness, and justice. I know you are forever and I want to invest my life in what lasts. Give me wisdom to see through the fleeting temptations of today and to do what honors you beyond my lifetime. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

The unfolding of your words gives light; it gives understanding to the simple.
—Psalm 119:130

Thoughts on Today’s Verse…

Sometimes the right path is not so difficult to find; we just need to know where to begin our search — the reading of God’s words. The right way is very seldom just the property of the bright, wise, and scholarly; it can be very clear for any of us if we will choose to look for it!

My Prayer…

Holy Father, thank you for making your will known through your words in Scripture. Bless me as I open your Word. May I find not only the answer to my questions, but may I find you and your precious will. In Jesus’ precious name I pray. Amen.
