This week’s scripture is from Psalms:

Why, my soul, are you downcast? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior and my God.   (Psalm 43.5)

Let us remember in whom our hope rests. When troubles assail us and our soul becomes troubled let us remember the One to whom we belong, the One who loves us with an everlasting love, the One to whom we can always turn for hope, for peace, for comfort. Let us remember to turn our troubles, our burdens, our pain, over to Him and to praise Him, to call on our Lord and Savior, our God in whom we can trust. Let us remember that whenever we are in a dark place He is our hope and our salvation, our help in time of trouble, our Lord who loves us, the God who never fails. Praise Him and place your hope in Him.

May the Lord bless you praise and hope in Him.

This week’s scripture is from Psalms:

“It is good to give thanks to the LORD,
And to sing praises to Your name, O Most High;
To declare Your loving-kindness in the morning,
And Your faithfulness every night…”

Let us give thanks to the Lord; let our lips be full of praise; let our voices exalt His Holy name, for the Lord is good to us. He blesses us each morning; His ever-loving kindness overflows to us. Whenever we need Him, He is there; whatever we need, He provides. He sent His Son that we might know Him and the fullness of His grace; He sent His Holy Spirit that we might live the revelation of His word. His faithfulness is steadfast and true. God blesses us every day. Let us praise the Lord for His love and faithfulness.

This week’s scripture is from 1 Corinthians:

“But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your labor is not in vain in the Lord”     
(1 Cor. 15:57-58 NKJV).

In these days, let us remember Christ who has the victory already in His hands, but let us also be mindful of the necessity to strengthen the people, for many are weak in the Lord, and when times get hard they may fall away. Wherever the Lord has placed you be it preacher, teacher, neighbor, friend, stand firm and speak the Word boldly; teach them how to be strong in the Lord. Show them the true power of love, which is stronger than evil, stronger than hate, stronger than death. Be steadfast in the Lord, and labor in the Truth. Take heart for the Lord is coming.

May the Lord bless you with boldness and opportunity to speak the Word into the lives of others.

This week’s scripture is from John:

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that has been made. In Him was life, and that life was the light of men”   (John 1:1-4).

It is good to remember that everything begins with the Lord, for He is the living Word, who is with God and was sent by God. When God spoke the Word, everything that is came into existence, everything in the universe, and everything in the world, including all life and all the living. Since the beginning, Our Lord Jesus Christ has been the light of life, the light of the world, and He remains our light in the darkness. He is the light of our salvation and our light unto eternity. Praise God for sending the Light. Praise God for sending His son Jesus Christ that we might know Him and the glory of His grace. Praise His holy name.

May the light of the Lord shine upon you and light your way.
