This week’s scripture is from John:

“The light shines in the darkness …

 “The true light that gives light to everyone was coming into the world.” (John 1:5a, 9)

Thank God that He is true and always keeps His promises, for He sent His Son into this dark world to be our light and our salvation. Long it was foretold that He would come. Now He is the light of the world and a lamp unto our feet. He has brought us into the light, and how blessed we are that His light can shine through us, for truth lives in the light and He lives in us. Hallelujah!  Thank you, Lord!

May the light of God’s blessings be yours this day and every day.

This week’s scripture is from Jeremiah:

“Give thanks to the Lord Almighty, for the Lord is good; his love endures forever.”  (Jeremiah 33:11)

Let us come before the Lord with thankful hearts and praise Him who loves us with an everlasting love. Thank the Lord who provides for all our needs and gives generously to all who come to Him. Let us bow down before Him and give thanks for the great and many blessings He has poured out upon us, for He provides for our every need and fills us with all that is good. Thank the Lord for sending His son Jesus Christ that we might know Him and the mercy of His grace. Let us praise God for He is good and all He does is good; let us give thanks to Him. Thanks be to God, the Lord Almighty, for all He has done.

May you be blessed as you come before the Lord with thanksgiving.

This week’s scripture is from the Psalms:

“Out of the depths I have cried to You, O Lord.

I wait for the Lord, my soul waits, and in His word I do hope” (Psalm 130:1,5)

It can be difficult to wait patiently for the Lord when seeking an answer to prayer or relief from suffering, but the Lord hears the cry of our hearts; He hears when we cry out from the depths of our soul. Yet He is faithful and true, and we can depend on His Word, for it is our help and our salvation, our hope in the day of trouble. May the Lord teach us to be patient in trials and affliction, and prayerful in waiting.

May the Lord bless you with the hope that is in His Word.

This week’s scripture is from Psalms:

“The LORD is faithful to all his promises
and loving toward all he has made.

  The LORD upholds all those who fall
and lifts up all who are bowed down.”    
(Psalm 145:13b-14)

Thank God that He is loving and faithful. Do not let go of God’s promises. Believe the promises of His Word, for they are yea and amen in Christ. Believe if He has promised you healing, believe if He has promised salvation for one you’ve been praying for, believe if He has said He still has a work for you to do, believe God’s promise, believe His Word, for it never fails. He lifts up those who have been bowed down, for He is the Faithful One. Remember today to thank God and praise Him for His faithfulness.

I pray that this day, and each day, you will praise the Lord for His love and faithfulness towards you.
