Mark 7:28

January 31

And she answered and said to Him, “Yes, Lord, yet even the little dogs under the table eat from the children’s crumbs.”

This woman’s statement is a cultural statement. She was a Greek, a Syrophoenician by birth, and because she was not of the children of Israel, she was an idol worshipper and considered to be a dog. In her desperation for her demon-possessed daughter, she recognized her great need for Jesus, and she would not let the cultural barrier stop her from establishing a relationship with Him. But Jesus tests her faith in Him by stating that it’s not good to give the children’s bread to the dogs.

Her response, “Yes, Lord” was a remarkable declaration of faith. Do you know that those are the two most powerful words you’ll ever learn to say? “Yes, Lord” is the response of a disciple who in following Jesus must deny himself and take up his cross when it’s hard. She agrees to His terms, and in that moment, Jesus felt her faith in agreement with His, and He knew that she was ready to receive the power of God in her life. She said, “If I can get a crumb from You, it is enough to bring deliverance.” Whatever you need, you have it in Jesus. You will receive that mountain-moving miracle when you believe that He is the only One who can make that miracle move.

Today's Blessing: 

And now may the Lord bless you and keep you. May the Lord make His face to shine upon you and give you His peace. May you walk today knowing the faith that God has given you and the initiative that you take on that faith will lead you into success for tomorrow in every adventure. Nothing is too difficult for the Lord that we serve. Put your hands in the nail-scarred hand of the Son of God and walk with Him to achieve your destiny. For great is the Lord God of heaven, who saves us all through His precious blood in Jesus’ name, Amen.

Proverbs 18:21

January 30

Death and life are in the power of the tongue, And those who love it will eat its fruit.

Do you believe that your words are so powerful that they have the power of death and life in them? Notice how extreme those two positions are. God didn’t say that there’s a little bit of good and a little bit of bad in your speech. He didn’t say there’s a little sweet, sour, sassy or sincere. He said you have one of two things coming out of your mouth. One is life, and the other is extremely different, and that’s death.

How many dreams have been birthed by words of inspiration and hope? Words such as, “I believe in you” and “You can do it,” reminders that “all things are possible through Christ,” and statements such as, “God is able to give you exceedingly abundantly above all you could ask, think or imagine.” These are words that give life to your dreams. And how many dreams have been abandoned because of statements that have destroyed the thing that you desire in your heart? We can assassinate a dream and destroy a destiny with statements such as, “I don’t think so," “You’ll never...” and “I doubt it.”

Today choose words of life from God’s Word that will change your life and others’ lives.

Today's Blessing: 

And now may the Lord bless you and keep you. May the Lord make His face to shine upon you and be gracious unto you. May the Lord give you His peace. May you live from this day forward with supernatural blessings which bring God’s continuous happiness in your home, in your marriage, in your speech, in your emotions so that the law of divine happiness will rule your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus, Amen.

Mark 9:23

January 29

Jesus said to him, “If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes.

What would you do today if you knew you couldn’t fail? What would you attempt to achieve if you knew you were going to succeed at it? The Bible says very clearly, “All things are possible to him who believes.” If you’ll go to work and trust in God, whatever you pursue for His purpose and plan for your life will come to pass.

What would be different in your life, in your marriage, in your family, with your children, in your finances, in your career, and in your physical body if you took the responsibility and made the commitment to work toward what you know God wants for you? That’s how God designed us—to believe what He has said and work for it. You have to consistently pursue your goals so you can accomplish what you set out to do. You cannot talk about what you want and not be willing to go to work for it. The difference between a wish and reality is work. The world is filled with those who talk about it. Don’t say, “Maybe tomorrow.” Make up your mind that right now is the moment that you’re going to begin walking toward the greatness that God designed for you in this life.

Today's Blessing: 

Now may the Lord bless you and keep you. May the Lord make His face to shine upon you and be gracious unto you and give you peace. May God’s Holy Spirit fall on you now and give you the power to live a disciplined life, not in your strength, but in His; that you become totally dependent upon Jesus to be your shepherd as He leads you in paths of righteousness in all that you say and all that you do; that your life may prosper and that you may have the favor of God above and beyond anything you have ever dreamed possible. May this blessing be yours as you practice the disciplined Christian life. In Jesus’ name, we pray and ask it, Amen!

1 Samuel 30:4

January 28

Then David and the people who were with him lifted up their voices and wept, until they had no more power to weep.

David and his six hundred warriors returned to their city only to find that their wives and children had been taken captive, their homes burned, and all their possessions had been taken. It was an unimaginable loss that broke every man’s heart, and they didn’t know what to do. The Bible says the first thing they did was to lift up their voices and weep until they could weep no more.

The world we live in is a heartbreaking place. Some heartbreaks and grief come without warning, and others come as the end result of rejection, betrayal or poor choices made over time. When your heart breaks, it’s right and good to cry. There is nothing strong about stoicism. David was brave enough to fight a giant. His men were so mighty that stories are still told about them today. Yet, these warriors wept.

But it’s what you do when the weeping is over that determines whether or not you’re going to be a victor or victim. In his great distress, David “strengthened himself in the LORD his God.” He refused to give up, and instead, rose up to be his best, defeating the enemy. You can do the same as David by tapping into the only true source of strength—our God!

Today's Blessing: 

May the Lord bless you and keep you. May the Lord make His face to shine upon you and give you His peace. May you walk in a covenant love. May your family be re-energized with the grace, goodness and love of God. Husbands, love your wives as Christ loved the church. Wives, submit yourselves to your own husbands, and so shall the peace of God flood your heart and your life with joy unspeakable that’s filled with constant glory. In Jesus’ name, receive that blessing, Amen.

1 John 3:8

January 27

He who sins is of the devil, for the devil has sinned from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil.

Why did God send His only begotten Son into the world to go to Calvary, conquer death, hell and the grave, and rise on the third day? So that He might break the chains of sin from our shackled and tattered lives, mend our ruined lives, and give us the opportunity to see our lives changed, thus destroying the works of the devil. Every time you encounter Jesus’ presence, He has the ability to meet your every need according to His riches in glory. He can heal sickness in your body, lift the burdens and yokes off of you, and set you free from bondage and addiction. For whom the Son sets free is free indeed!

When you see what Jesus came to do, the first thing you have to ask yourself is whether you are willing to allow Him to do His work in your life. Jesus said, “If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes” (Mark 9:23). You have to believe He can destroy the works of the devil in your life before He will. Today, recognize that you need to see Him as your only source and put Him first. Let Him in and let Him do His work.

Today's Blessing: 

May the Lord bless you and keep you. May the Lord make His face to shine upon you and be gracious unto you and give you His peace. May you walk in the confidence that Jesus Christ is Lord, and all of our tomorrows are safe and secure in Him. Lift up your heads and rejoice, the King of glory is coming, and the victory is ours in Christ the Lord. Hope thou in God for He is the source of our strength. In Jesus’ name, we receive this blessing, Amen.

Proverbs 18:10

January 26

The name of the Lord is a strong tower; The righteous run to it and are safe.

If there was ever a time in our modern society when we needed to hear from heaven, it is now. We need God to move on our behalf each and every day to keep watch over us and protect us, to lead us and guide us.

We need favor and blessing of God upon our lives and the lives of our family members. We need an infusion of the Holy Spirit in our households so that we may dwell in peace even when it seems that all hell is breaking loose.

Remember, our God is a strong tower! We can run to Him in the day of adversity and be saved. He is all-knowing and all-powerful. You have never faced an enemy that could not be defeated by the almighty God. When things appear grim and you are surrounded by adversity, look to the One who holds the world in the palm of His hand—who knows your every thought and counts your every tear—and rest assured that everything is going to be alright.

You may feel like the only one on the planet who is trying to live a righteous life, but stand firm, persuaded that the fight belongs to the Lord. He will protect and sustain you when you put your life in the His capable hands. Our God is an awesome God!

Today's Blessing: 

Father, bless us and keep us. Help us to always celebrate the blessings that You have poured out in our lives, especially those wonderful individuals that we have given ourselves to in covenant relationship. Let us be committed to do the work that God has for us to do; that we can see the foundations of righteousness rebuilt in this nation, and the goodness, mercy, grace, power, and blessings of God poured out upon our children and our children’s children. In Your precious name, we pray and ask, Amen.

Psalm 34:4

January 25

I sought the Lord, and He heard me, And delivered me from all my fears.

We all have fears. People fear failure, the unknown and change. People fear rejection, which is why they’re willing to morph into what other people believe they should be. People fear conflict, which is why they’ll do anything to avoid it. People fear death because they’re afraid that the promises of everlasting life might not be true.

Whenever I look for a profile of courage to encourage me, the shepherd boy named David, who faced a giant with a slingshot, tops my list. But for all his acts of courage, he said he didn’t just have a fear; he had many fears. And when he considered his fears, no matter what they were, he had one solution—to seek the Lord. When he sought the Lord, he was “delivered” from them, which means the fears were taken off of him, but he was not delivered from the situation. Suddenly in the midst of conflict, he had the courage to do what he needed to do to solve the problem, whether it was a giant or to rule and build the kingdom. Courage for David, and for all of us, is the strength to control our fears and to do what God calls us to do.

Today's Blessing: 

Now may the Lord bless you and keep you. May the Lord make His face to shine upon you and be gracious unto you and give you His peace. May the Lord bring to you blessed assurance—the peace of God that surpasses all understanding which will crush every element of fear. May God bring you through the fiery furnace without the smell of smoke upon you. May God lift every burden from you and give you the faith to shout the victory on the darkest night of your life. God is your helper and your strength; therefore, it is well with your soul. Rejoice and be exceedingly glad. The battle is the Lord’s, and the victory has already been won in Jesus’ name, Amen.

Psalm 25:2

January 24

O my God, I trust in You; let me not be ashamed; let not my enemies triumph over me.

Today, I'm asking you to turn loose of the things that have held you back. Stop drowning in desperation and despair. Rise up! This year is going to be God's year in your life. It is the year where doors will be opened in your favor while others will be closed that would cause you harm. Trust Him to handle things without trying to micromanage the details of your life. Turn loose of the reins and allow God to have His way in you!

This year, with the help of Almighty God, you can get over your heartaches, the rejection you've faced, and any controlling relationships! Get over what Satan has done to you, too! Turn loose of the resentment and bitterness...those who have abused you and lied about you. Turn it all over to the Lord and watch as your life becomes filled with joy once again.

Let the misery melt away and let the Son shine in!

Today's Blessing: 

And now may the Lord bless you and keep you. May the Lord make His face to shine upon you and be gracious unto you, giving you His peace. May you be committed to doing the will of God, living in the perfect providential graciousness of God your Father. He will send His angels before you to prepare your way and behind you to be your rear guard. Know that you will live within His divine favor because you are obedient to Him. May the Lord bless you now in all things.

Psalm 23:5

January 23

You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You anoint my head with oil; my cup runs over.

Our God is the God of yesterday, today and tomorrow. He’s the God who can go into your past and erase the pain. He’s the God who can make a way for you today. And He’s the God who’s already working out details in your future long before you arrive in your next conflict. God is the One who is there whenever and wherever You need Him.

You and I have a common enemy. Jesus called him a thief who comes to rob, kill and destroy. And whenever the devil comes against you, your family, your physical health or your finances, because God has already gone into your tomorrows, He pulls out a chair at a table of provision. He says, “Sit down and be blessed while I defeat your enemies, build your business, open the windows of heaven, and pour out blessings that you cannot contain.”

If you are going through a difficult time, recognize that God has already charted the course. He is not hemmed in by your wristwatch. He knew where you’d be today and was already working out the answer to your problem long before you knew the problem. So rather than worry about it, sit down at His table, be thankful and bless His name!

Today's Blessing: 

Now may the Lord bless you and keep you. May the Lord make His face to shine upon you and be gracious unto you and give you His peace. May you walk today, with a new dream, with the courage to face the fact that you cannot be defeated because God is with you. The Lord God will go before you. He will destroy your enemies before you. He will open the closed doors before you. The seas will part, and your vision will become a reality because you have divine persistence to reach the objective God has given. Go with this blessing and receive it with joy. Though it is delayed in coming, it most assuredly will come because God has promised it. In Jesus’ name, receive the blessing.
