This week’s scripture is from Matthew:

“Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.” (Matthew 6:34)

Let us remember who we are and to whom we belong, for we are children of the Most High God. We are His and He is ours if we have given ourselves to Him. Let us remember each day to seek Him and His righteousness, for He is faithful to take care of us and to bless us. Whatever we need, whatever trouble or difficulty we face, He is there to see us through. Let us learn to trust, to lean upon His everlasting arms, to sit quietly in His presence and be at peace, for He is ever with us. Let us not worry about tomorrow, but let us remember to whom tomorrow belongs, for He is already there and He knows it already.

May the Lord bless you to trust totally in Him.

Happy Easter! This week’s scripture is from Matthew:

But the angel answered and said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you seek Jesus who was crucified. He is not here; for He is risen, [just] as He said.”           (Matthew 28:5-6)

He is risen, He is risen, He is risen! Thank God, thank God, thank God Almighty. Jesus Christ is risen; He is alive. He sacrificed Himself that we might be reconciled to God our Father, that we might know Him and the mercy of His grace, for He is the bread of life, the Holy One, the Son of God; He sealed the new covenant in His blood that we might have the forgiveness of our sins, that we might have salvation and eternal life. Thank you Lord Jesus. How blessed we are to know His love and the beauty of His grace.

May the blessings of the Lord’s sacrifice strengthen you as you follow in His ways.

This week’s scripture is from Matthew:

“So the disciples went and did as Jesus commanded them. They brought the donkey and the colt, laid their clothes on them, and set Him on them. And a very great multitude spread their clothes on the road; others cut down branches from the [palm] trees and spread them on the road. Then the multitudes who went before and those who followed cried out, saying:

“Hosanna to the Son of David!
‘Blessed is He who comes in the name of the LORD!’
Hosanna in the highest!”
   (Matthew 21:6-9)

Praise the Lord, God Almighty! He is come! The Prince of Peace; the Lord of Salvation; the Holy One of God is come. Rejoice you saints, rejoice, for the Son of God is here. Shout! Cry out! Praise His Holy Name. Let loose your tongue and raise your voice; praise the heavens above for our King is come. Open your hearts and open your mouth, declare him King of Kings and Lord of Lords, for there is no other, and no other name under heaven by which we must be saved, for at His name every knee shall bow and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord. Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Amen.

May your heart cry out and rejoice at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.

This week’s scripture is from the Psalms:

“He has sent his redemption to His people; He has commanded His covenant forever:

Holy and awesome is His name”   (Psalm 111:9).

Thank God that He sent His son that we might know redemption through the shed blood of Jesus Christ, our Lord. Thank God that the new covenant in His blood for the forgiveness of sins sets us free. Thank God for His mercy and grace. Thank God that through His sacrifice we have the promise of eternal life with Him. This is truly good news. Holy and awesome is the name above all names. Praise God, praise God. Praise His holy name.

May the blessings of Christ, who died for us, be yours this day.

This week’s scripture is from Psalms:

Wait for the Lord;
be strong and take heart
and wait for the Lord.
     (Psalm 27:14)

We should wait upon the Lord for He is our light and our salvation. Our Lord is like no other for there is no other like Him. He is our stronghold and our strength in times of trouble; let our hearts not fear but draw close to Him. Let us set our hearts on dwelling in the house of the Lord, safe in the day of trouble, for all the days of our lives. Let us rise with shouts of joy and sing to the Lord for He will not reject us or forsake us. Pray that the Lord teach us and lead us on the straight path. Praise Him, for we will see the goodness of the Lord if we will wait upon Him and be strong in His might, and secure in His everlasting love for us. Amen.

May the Lord bless you as you wait faithfully upon Him.
