Verse of the Day
My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth. [NIV] Psalm 139:15
Have you allowed a lie or many variations of it to master you? Have you allowed it to get a foothold into your life, letting it erode your hopes and dreams? Was it because it was easier to believe the lie instead of seeing the truth for what it is. Some times what you know for certain about the Sovereignty of God is more than enough for you to see the truth for what it is! That God created you to reflect the glory of His goodness! You don’t need anyone to tell you or teach you the truth. It is never hidden, it’s not that difficult to find? Just because the lie has clouded your mind into believing the truth is not for the like of you; still doesn’t stop the truth from being the truth, doesn’t stop the truth from being what God says is “TRUE”! God is so confident about the truth of all He says concerning you, about your glorious destiny, about you, that no lie of the enemy can ever stop it from becoming a realisation. Don’t you think it’s also time you became confident in the assurance of God, in His truth, which can never be hidden in your life, which He says in Isaiah 55:10-11 will definitely be realised in your life? Don’t you think it’s time you started believing the truth? #VerseoftheDay #Devotional #Bible #Jesus #Secret #Truth #Hidden #lies #untruth #God
Verse of the Day
Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends. [NKJV] John 15:13
Through the words of Jesus in today’s Bible passage, He shows us how far our love for one another should be; even to the point of laying down of our lives for our friends; which is the highest instance of love shown to us all by Jesus. But what does friendship really mean to many today? Many of us today choose our friends based on what they have to offer, very rarely discovering the blessings of a genuinely true friendship. Thank God for Jesus, who is the finest example of what a true friend should be. His love for us is sacrificial, never selfish. And when He walked among men, He demonstrated it not only through his miracles but more fully through the humble service of washing His disciples’ feet (John 13:1-17), and then ultimately, when he laid down his life on the cross. Don’t you know that valuing your friend’s needs above your own, you’ll be on your way to loving like Jesus; and in the process gain a true friend for life? I don’t know about you, but having true friends is worth so much more than gaining false ones. Prayer: Lord Jesus, teach us how to love like You! We know it’s not going to be easy, but it will be worth it in the end. In Jesus name. Amen.

Verse of the Day
A friend loves at all times, And a brother is born for adversity. [NKJV] Proverbs 17:17
A true, hearty, faithful friend, loves in times of adversity as well as in times of prosperity: there are many that are friends to persons, while they are in affluent circumstances; but when there is a change in their condition, and they are stripped of all riches and substance; then their friends forsake them, and stand at a distance from them; as was the case of Job (Job 19:14) – [Gill’s Exposition].
It’s a very rare thing to find a friend that is a constant in every situation you may find yourself in, such as has been described in today’s bible verse. But you don’t need to let that unsettle you. The same scripture tells us that indeed there is such a friend that sticks closer than a brother (Proverbs 18:24b). His name is Jesus! Many may have let you down, but He only can be relied upon. Indeed I have found Him to be a faithful friend! Why don’t you try Jesus today, and you will never be disappointed! #VerseoftheDay #Devotional #Bible #FaithfulFriend #Jesus #Friendship #Truth #God
Verse of the Day
Then Agrippa said to Paul, “You almost persuade me to become a Christian.” And Paul said, “I would to God that not only you, but also all who hear me today, might become both almost and altogether such as I am, except for these chains.” [NKJV] Acts 26:28-29
If the Lord had not been on my side, the troubles of this world most likely would have snuffed the life out of me. But God rescued me. Great is His love towards me, He preserved my life and kept my feet from slipping. He alone is worthy of my praise and thanksgiving! My lips will continually glorify Him, for He has done wonderful deeds in my life. He has been my rock, my fortress and my deliverer. He delivered me from all my troubles and my eyes have always looked in triumph over every challenge, adversity and adversary that has ever tried to make a mockery of the love of God over me. He is the stronghold of my life, and whenever I call to Him I am saved from every negative situation that tries to plague me, and great has always been my peace. He is Faithful, Pure, Trustworthy, Merciful and Loving God. His ways are Perfect! He is Wonderful, Powerful, Majestic, Marvellous, ONLY HE CAN KEEP ME SAFE, no one else! He truly has been and will forever be a good good God. If you don’t know Jesus yet, why don’t you try Him? It is my prayer that you come to know this amazing God whose love is better than life itself. #VerseoftheDay #Bible #Truth #God #Bible #FaithfulnessOfGod #Testimony #ReasonsWhyILoveGod #HeIsGodAlone
