Remember this if you forget everything else:

Verse of the Day

Once I was young, and now I am old. Yet I have never seen the godly abandoned or their children begging for bread. [New Living Translation] Psalm 37:25
……
Rest assured, God has not abandoned you. Neither has He forsaken you. You are surely coming out of that valley. You will not end your days in that lowered ground. The most High God, Creator of the entire universe can never desert in you in that situation. Have faith all is surely well with you. #VerseoftheDay #Bible #Devotional

His Praises!

Verse of the Day

I will bless the Lord at all times; His praise shall continually be in my mouth. [NKJV] Psalm 34:1B

….

The Psalmist said here, I will bless the Lord at all times, and His praises, not complaining; His praises, not voiced out worries; His praises, not testy words; His praises, not angry words; His praises, not blame games; His praises, not grumbling/grumpy words; His praises Will continually be on my lips. If there’s anything I’ve found in this life of mine is God is worth Praising. He has been The One Who can open doors than no man can shut; The One Who can make a way when there is no way in sight. The One that can lift one up even after all has written you off. The One Who loves, when all has deserted you. He is worth praising, and in no time you’ll see all of life’s trials become testimonies of His faithfulness! Now don’t you think it’s time you exchanged your response to life’s challenges with His Praises! Don’t you?

Your good is much better!

Verse of the Day

Don’t worry about the wicked, or envy those who do wrong. [NLT] Psalm 37:1

….

Why you ask? Because “like grass, they soon fade away. Like spring flowers, they soon wither”. Therefore “Trust in the Lord and do good. Then you will live safely in the land and prosper. Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you your heart’s desires. Commit everything you do to the Lord. Trust him, and he will help you. He will make your innocence radiate like the dawn, and the justice of your cause will shine like the noonday sun” (Psalm 37:2-6). Focus on doing good and in due time you will be richly rewarded by God! Though it seems your breakthrough may be taking a long while in coming, don’t stop in doing that good that you’re doing. The Lord has seen your good works, and He will never disappoint you. Remain encouraged. It will work out just fine in the end! #Verseoftheday #Devotional #Bible #Jesus #FaithFulGod #Psalm #Psalm37

Darts of Shame

Verse of the Day

The LORD is my light and my salvation– whom shall I fear? The LORD is the stronghold of my life– of whom shall I be afraid? [NIV] Psalm 27:1

….

If you truly believe that the Lord truthfully is that stronghold, that fortress of your life, where you are shielded and protecting from every form of danger or attack, then that knowledge, that assurance is enough to make you unafraid of what might be happening around you or even out there. There may be rumours circulating at your work place that there may be job cuts on the way / that your contract which is coming up for renewal may not get renewed, don’t let that bother you. You may be believing God for that life partner, starting a family/children, that settlement in your marriage, that establishment, materially and physically, and it all appears not to be forthcoming; and because you are getting on in age for that reason you or others around you may have started to see your life as incomplete; again I say to you, have no fear. You will never suffer shame or humiliation. Yes, trials will come, for a time, but because you know the Lord is that shield, protecting you from all forms of tribulations, that assurance is enough to quench the fiery darts of shame and disgrace when thrown against you. Do not be afraid, the Lord who is your light and salvation will not let them harm you! #Verseoftheday #Devotional #Jesus #DartsOfShame

Your Helper Never Slumbers

Verse of the Day

I lift up my eyes to the mountains—where does my help come from? [NIV] Psalm 122:1

 

My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth. He will not let your foot slip—he who watches over you will not slumber; indeed, he who watches over Israel will neither slumber nor sleep. The Lord watches over you—the Lord is your shade at your right hand; the sun will not harm you by day, nor the moon by night. The Lord will keep you from all harm—he will watch over your life; the Lord will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore.  [NIV] Psalm 122:2-8

………

Look unto the Lord and Him only, and He will help you in your hour of need. A watchman will at one point fall to sleep, but the Lord, the maker of heaven and earth neither grows tired or week, or even falls asleep during His watch over you. Look to Him, call to Him for help, He has seen your plight, He has seen your circumstance, and He is more than able to deliver you from all your distresses. #RemainEncouraged #VerseoftheDay #Devotional #Psalm #BookofPsalms

Praise Report 2

Verse of the Day

Praise the LORD’s greatness with me. Let us highly honor his name together. [GWT] Psalm 34:3

Even the psalmist was not content with praising God all on his own. He must have praised and praised God, and realised that even if He was to praise Him from now till eternity it would not be enough to thank Him for all He did for Him (which he tells us in verses 4-10 of the same chapter). And so He called on Israel to join him in praising the Lord. Sometimes in life, when you’ve taken a stock check of your life, and have seen all that the Lord has done for you, you can’t help but to go the way of the Psalmist, and ask not just your friends and family, but even the world to come and praise the Lord with you. Indeed I sought the LORD, and he answered me; he delivered me from all my fears. I have looked only to the Lord, and my face has never been covered with shame. In my desperation I prayed and sought the Lord, indeed He listened and He saved me from all of my troubles. For the angel of the LORD is a guard; He surrounds and defends all who fear Him. Oh Friends, taste and see that the LORD is good. Oh, the joys of those who take refuge in him! Even strong young lions sometimes go hungry, but those who trust in the LORD will never lack any good thing. (Vs 4-10). Why don’t you come and praise the Lord with me. Indeed His mercies endure forever. #PraiseReport #Verseoftheday #Devotional #Bible
