Be inspired and uplifted each day as you receive insight into God's Word

Proverbs 3:1–2

February 20

My son, do not forget my law, But let your heart keep my commands; For length of days and long life And peace they will add to you.

We live in a world that is suffering with a tremendous lack of peace. Perhaps you’re concerned about the chaos you see happening all around you. You’re wondering about the indecision of leaders and what direction our future holds. Today, God’s Word promises if you remember His commandments and do what He asks you to do, you are going to have length of days, long life, and peace. You can be supremely convinced that if you do God’s will in your life, you can have perfect peace that God is a problem solver, and everything is going to be all right.

His Word also says you will have “long life,” which is God’s promise that you will get to enjoy your years of living, not just live long. But what does it mean to have “length of days?” A life is made up of decades and years, but days are made up of hours. When you have a “length of day,” God is saying that whatever you put your hands to in a day’s work, God will pour His anointing upon it, and He will give you progress. Rather than struggle in your own strength, when you submit yourself to God’s Word, whatever you put your hands to is going to prosper.

Blessing: 

And now may the Lord bless you and keep you. May the Lord make His face to shine upon you. And may the Lord be gracious unto you and give you His peace. May you walk in the confidence that you are victorious in Jesus’ name; that the precious blood of the cross has forever forgiven you of your sins. For if we confess our sins, God is faithful and forgives us of our sins and cleanses us from all unrighteousness. Walk in the confidence that you are a member of the church triumphant, and everything that’s in the future, God Almighty is in sovereign control. And we are soon to see the King in all of His glory. In Jesus’ name, receive this blessing.

Romans 15:4

February 19

For whatever things were written before were written for our learning, that we through the patience and comfort of the Scriptures might have hope.

When you look back at what God has done historically, you can build expectation about what He can do for you. When you see how He consistently blessed Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, you know that if He blessed a father, son and grandson, He will bless you, your children and your grandchildren, too. When you look back at how He delivered the children of Israel from the bondage of Pharaoh and brought them miraculously from their past into the full potential of their future, you recognize that He can destroy every shackle of sin and set you free from every bondage and addiction that binds you. And you can, with comfort, declare that whom the Son sets free is free indeed.

When you read about the manna and the water from a rock in the wilderness, about Jericho’s walls that came down with a shout, and how a giant was defeated with David’s stone, you can trust God enough to declare in faith believing,“Greater is He who is in me than he who is in the world.” When you read how Jesus Christ touched multitudes of the sick and healed them all and how He fed the masses with a sack lunch, you know that our God is full of power and able to provide more than you could ask, think or imagine.

Blessing: 

Father, bless us and keep us. Make Your face to shine upon us. Be gracious unto us. That which You’ve done in the past, in faith believing, we claim You’ll do it again. We receive a new dawn and a new direction knowing, heavenly Father, that You have made a way where there seems to be no way. We know Your loving kindness will shine upon us, and the newness of life will be the glorious shining Face of God that goes before us. We receive Your blessing. We receive Your presence, and we thank You for Your touch. Amen.

Mark 12:30

February 18

And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength.’ This is the first commandment.

When we hear the word “currency,” we immediately think “money.” But did you ever wonder what the currency of the kingdom of God is? What does God find valuable in our lives as a heavenly currency? For a heavenly kingdom, you must trade in heavenly currency, which Jesus defines in these words: “you shall love the Lord your God.” That is what God values as the kingdom currency.

The apostle Paul wrote in 1 Corinthians 13 that our intellect is not kingdom currency. He says that even if he knew everything there was to know, or if he could tell you everything that no one could figure out, he would be nothing if he didn’t have love. And if he could speak all kinds of languages, he would be nothing without love. And if he could do great things for people, even sacrifice himself for them, he would be nothing without love. Why? Because God only values love as His currency.

You might not think you have much to give God, but it’s not about money. The capital that you can give to the King is love from your heart, soul, mind and strength. Today, consider what you have to invest in His kingdom and be generous in the love offering.

Blessing: 

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 walk in His divine atonement totally unified with God the Father, Jesus Christ His Son, and in the power of the Holy Spirit. May you walk with the peace of God that surpasses all understanding, with the power of the knowledge that you are blessed, and that God delights in your prosperity in all things. Rejoice and be exceedingly glad for you are sons and daughters set free by the blood of Jesus Christ. Amen.

Proverbs 3:5

February 17

Trust in the Lord with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding

Trust is a deteriorating quality in today’s world. Coworkers play office politics because they cannot trust one another’s motives. The public doesn’t trust the government and vice versa. We have apps on our phones to check on the safety of our homes and bank accounts. We’ve learned how not to trust.

In the midst of a world where trust can be so difficult, you have every reason to fully trust the God whom you serve with your whole heart. When you see how He gave His only begotten Son to forgive and cleanse sinners, who sets free those who believe in Him and gives them everlasting life, you can declare, “If God is for me, who can be against me?”

I’ve learned that the faster we trust the Lord, the farther we can go. The delay between us receiving His blessing and His willingness to pour it out is the time it takes for us to trust that His promise is true. The less time we spend worrying about what if and what will be, and the less strength we waste in our own effort, the more we are able to accomplish because God’s goodness is being poured out the quicker we trust Him.

Blessing: 

And now may the Lord bless you and keep you. May the Lord make His face to shine upon you. And may the Lord be gracious unto you and give you His peace. May you recognize today the power of the anointing in your life and know that God Almighty has commanded His blessing upon your life. Look for the blessing. Expect the blessing. Speak the blessing. Because heaven has commanded it this day that your life may be blessed with divine favor.  In Jesus’ name, we receive the blessing.

Psalm 24:1

February 16

The earth is the Lord’s, and all its fullness, The world and those who dwell therein.

Oftentimes we get together and talk about things we’d like to change in the world. When we see the conditions of morality in this nation and the current direction our country is headed, and we know that many churches are abandoning the truth of God’s Word to be politically correct, it’s easy to feel hopeless because we don’t feel as though we have the ability, the power or the strength to make a difference. The reality is that not much will change until we talk to Someone who can change things. Regardless of how corrupt our world has become, the truth remains that this earth is the Lord’s and all its fullness. God is still on His throne, and He still governs the affairs of men.

So if we want to see change, we need to talk to the One who can change it. The only One who has the ability to change the direction of this nation is not running on a party ticket. The only One who has the ability to fix what is broken in your world is the One who created it. And the only way to speak to Him is when you pray.

Don’t you think it’s time to pray?

Blessing: 

And now may the Lord bless you and keep you. May the Lord make His face to shine upon you. And may the Lord be gracious unto 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 and 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.

Psalm 119:11

February 15

Your word I have hidden in my heart, That I might not sin against You.

Have you ever heard something that was so profound that you immediately knew it was important? And you told yourself, “I will never forget what I just heard.” Then on your way to the car, you ask yourself, “What did he just say?” The mind has a way of taking information in and doesn’t necessarily forget it or lose it; it just can’t remember where it placed it.

David said, “I’m not going to hide God’s Word in the filing cabinets of my mind. I’m going to hide His Word in my heart.” We need to place His Word as a treasure into our heart so that when life becomes overwhelming, we can open the treasure chest and receive what we need. When we’re in a hopeless situation, we will remember God’s Word because it’s our source of hope. When we don’t have the strength to carry on, we will reach into God’s Word because it will give us the power to take the next step. When the world around us is saturated in fear and afraid to move, we will go to the treasure of God’s Word and find courage because we know that we are more than a conqueror through Christ.

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 have the faith today to put your hand in the hand of God and reach your divine destiny, for no good thing will He withhold from you who diligently seek Him. He can make a way where there seems to be no way, and God will not fail you. Go with that blessing and celebrate with joy, Amen.

Job 37:5

February 14

God thunders marvelously with His voice; He does great things which we cannot comprehend.

When we see what God does, we should marvel and give Him praise. When was the last time you just stood awestruck at God? It’s one thing when you see the waters of the Red Sea part, and then take the tambourine and dance and praise Him for His wonders. When you see Jericho’s walls fall or Goliath slain, it’s easy to be awestruck by God’s greatness.

But when was the last time you just closed your eyes in your everyday life, took a deep breath, and said, “My God, how great Thou art?” When’s the last time you got up to walk and thanked God that you could move? Or, you used your fingers and thanked God that you had strength? Or, you saw something beautiful and thanked God that He gave you the ability to see it? Or, you heard something wonderful and thanked God that He gave you the ability to hear it? When was the last time you said, “God, life is marvelous in my eyes, the way You’ve created this world, the way You’ve protected me and provided for me, and all the wonderful things that You’ve done?” Now would be a good time!

Blessing: 

May the Lord bless you and keep you. May the Lord make His face to shine upon you and God Himself give you His peace. May you walk in the confidence that you are heirs with Jesus Christ, knowing that regardless of what the future holds, God holds the future and everything is going to be alright. Walk with the peace and confidence of the Holy Spirit within You, for greater is He that is within you than He who is within the world in Jesus’ name. Amen.

Matthew 21:42

February 13

Jesus said to them, “Have you never read in the Scriptures: ‘The stone which the builders rejected Has become the chief cornerstone. This was the Lord’s doing, And it is marvelous in our eyes’?

The birth of Jesus Christ fulfilled every prophecy given in the Old Testament, and the life of Christ painted the exact portrait of the One who was promised. Every action that He took and every word He spoke shouted in agreement with John the Baptist, “Behold the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!” But regardless of all that He did to demonstrate who He was on the earth, the men in that day rejected Him. Why? Because Jesus was what they needed, but He wasn’t what they wanted. They needed a Savior; they wanted a king.They needed someone to forgive them of sin; they wanted someone to run Caesar out of town. When they saw His miracles and His majesty, they said to themselves, “Maybe this is the guy who’s going to bring back the good ol’ days.” But having seen the priceless gemstone of eternity, they walked away from the priceless treasure for counterfeit traditions.

What a joy to know that our Savior is not just another stone; He is the Stone that our faith is built upon. Never put your faith in something that can be substituted. You can take lots of stones out of a building and replace them, but if you take the cornerstone away, the building goes flat. Put your faith in the Chief Cornerstone. You can’t live without Him.

Blessing: 

May the Lord bless you and keep you. May the Lord make His face to shine upon you. May the Lord be gracious unto you and give you His peace. May you know that your destiny is in the hand of the Lord, measured only by your obedience to His Word. As you obey the Lord, so shall His substance and blessing be poured out to you. Trust and obey for there’s no other way to be happy in Jesus, but to trust and obey. May the Lord bless you and all that you put your hands to. In Jesus’ name, receive this blessing.

Lamentations 3:23

February 12

They are new every morning; Great is Your faithfulness.

People who live in the Rocky Mountains, looking at the same mountains every day, can easily take for granted the majestic sights and the peace that surrounds them. It may take a visit from somebody who lives in the flatlands of Kansas to help them recognize the wonders they’re taking for granted. Somebody who’s never experienced it before will be filled with amazement.

We need to guard against becoming so familiar and saturated with the good things God has provided us that we lose our wonder. Sometimes I think we forget the power of God’s Word because we have unlimited access to it. We have 24/7 access to Christian television and radio. There is no shortage of opportunities for us to worship with others and receive excellent preaching. Sometimes our abundance creates complacency, and we just start to take it all for granted when there are places in the world today where people are being persecuted even unto death for professing their faith in Christ.

Let us never become complacent in our walk of faith and lose our sense of amazement at what great things God has done for us. His compassions and mercies are new every morning. Take time right now and give Him thanks for His wonders.

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, giving you His peace. Today, regardless of your circumstance, be thankful to God for all that He is and for all that He is going to be - for forgiving your past, for controlling your present and for resolving your tomorrows. Let us rejoice and be glad for the Lord our God is great and mighty. He holds us in the palm of His hand. "Rejoice and be exceedingly glad," saith the Lord unto His people. And all of God’s children said, “Praise the Lord!”
