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

Psalm 94:9

December 11

He who planted the ear, shall He not hear? He who formed the eye, shall He not see?
God is in control. If your prayer didn't get answered the way you wanted it to, don't get discouraged; God has something better in mind for you. Be patient. Learn how to wait upon the Lord.

Remember, good is the enemy of better, and better is the enemy of best. You can't trust God to release what is in His hand until you let go of what is in yours. Trust that He has something wonderful just waiting for you that your human mind cannot even begin to grasp.

Keep praying. Keep watching. Keep waiting. God hears your prayers; He sees your need; He is in complete control, and He knows all. There are three answers to your prayer: yes, no or wait. If God is telling you to wait, then it means that you are just not quite ready for the amazing things He has in store for you. Trust that in due season your need will be met with a solution so spectacular that when you see it come together, you will immediately know that indeed the Lord had His hand upon you all along.

By awesome deeds in righteousness You will answer us, O God of our salvation, You who are the confidence of all the ends of the earth, And of the far-off seas

If you think you're having a bad day, a bad week, maybe even a bad year, I submit to you that it's not nearly as bad as what Lazarus endured. But God brought him back from the dead and gave him a new beginning. God can do the very same thing for you today. He can supernaturally heal you from the inside out...even if you feel dead inside.

Maybe your life seems meaningless. You have lost all hope. God wants you to take a good look at yourself. What do you see? No matter how bleak the picture, how deep the pain, He wants you to have the greatest comeback of all time. He wants you to enjoy the most exciting life you can possibly imagine. Allow the Master to intervene in your life on every level, and know that He can transform you in the blink of an eye.

Let Him be your confidence. Nothing and no one is beyond the reach of God.

December 9

Blessed are the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy.
God's mercy is covenantal loyalty in action. Throughout Scripture are promises that His mercy is renewed each morning. God loves mercy.

This kind of loyalty and compassion begins at home and should be encouraged in our churches. We should then take mercy out into the streets with us, to our jobs, our neighbors, to those who hurting and in need of our help.

The church without loyal mercy is a fraud. It becomes a house of legalism, nothing more than the religious keeping of a set of rules made by man rather than God. Look for a place that preaches the uncompromised Word of God. For this unadulterated message, there is absolutely no substitute!

Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

God always compensates you when people oppose you. He can bless you so that the situation that used to intimidate you…you now master. Don't let others' opinions or cruelties define you. Allow God's promises to show you exactly who you are through His eyes.

Are you ready for all of that goodness?

God won't give you something great until you are desperate to have His very best. Can God trust you with favor? Or, are you trying to do everything on your own, keeping God on a shelf for special occasions only?

Other people will often envy the demonstration of God's favor upon your life, so don't be deterred by their criticism. Lift your head and square your shoulders. Smile. It will make your enemies crazy. Clap your hands and shout for joy! You are favored by the living God, and the kingdom of heaven is yours!

December 7

For I am the Lord, I do not change; Therefore you are not consumed, O sons of Jacob.

God cannot change. He is the same yesterday, today and forever. His plans stand firm. He is unwavering in His principles and does not adapt to situational ethics. It doesn't matter what I think, what you think, or what the government says. God does not change.

There are zero exceptions.

The great thing about this is that what He did for you yesterday, He can do again for you today. Were you sick and He healed you? Was your marriage crumbling and He brought you into an even place? Did He help you through financial struggles last year?

He is the same. I cannot say it enough. You cannot trust God to help you in one area of your life (watching over your children, for example) and then not trust Him in others (as if helping to heal your broken marriage would be too much). What He has done in the past, He can and will do again. Have faith in God and know that whatever you ask in His name, it shall be done.

December 6

My thoughts are not your thoughts, Nor are your ways My ways, says the Lord. For as the Heavens are higher than the earth, So are My ways higher than your ways, and My Thoughts than you thoughts.

When we pray and ask God for something, He doesn’t always answer on our timetable. Sometimes He says “yes,” sometimes He says “no,” and sometimes He says “wait.” But we continue to seek His will for our lives.

He is the Alpha and Omega who sees the beginning from the end, the Bright and Morning Star. Give Him the opportunity to work something in your life that is so fantastic, you have no doubt that it was divine intervention.

Are you facing a giant today? Does it feel that if you don’t win the victory in front of you, it could alter life as you know it? Do all that you know to do and then stand upon the promises found in God’s Word. Ask God to take over. When you follow His mandates, you are in the right position for Him to intervene on your behalf. He can turn your problem inside out and bring a resolution so complete that your human mind cannot begin to grasp the awesomeness of His plan. Not until you live through His answer will you see that it was so complete that it covered every tiny detail of your problem. We serve an awesome God!

Our human resources are so incredibly limited. Why would we want to hold God to our standards? Seek His face and thank Him for the answer that is already on the way. He has the perfect solution already lined up!

…Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty which was, and is, and is to come.
 

Worthy is the Lamb who was sacrificed for my salvation!

The whole earth is full of His glory. I give Him the glory due His name and worship Him in the beauty of His holiness. I bow down and kneel before You, Lord, for You are my God, and I am the sheep of Your hand. You are my Shepherd and my Redeemer.

You are my High Priest, who has paid the price for my sins and cleansed me from all unrighteousness that I might stand before God, shameless and without fear.

I worship God in spirit and in truth for He is worthy to receive glory and honor. Worthy is the Lamb who was sacrificed for my salvation. All power, riches, wisdom, might, honor, majesty and blessing belong to Him! I lift up holy hands. To Him who is seated on the throne and to the Lamb be glory forever and ever!

I will bless the name of the Lord at all times! His praise shall continually be in my mouth. With a loud voice, together with the angels in heaven, I will sing of the mercy and loving kindness of the Lord forever. With my mouth will I make known His faithfulness to all generations!

Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!

What are you chasing? Who are you chasing? Stop right now!

What do you do when you don't know what to do? Sit down until you figure it out? The Bible says to be still. The answer might be right under your feet, but you're so busy running in every direction that you can't see what is right in front of you!

Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. Why? Because human understanding is flawed at best; it is shortsighted. If you are constantly chasing the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, you don't have time to listen for the still, small voice that is trying to lead you down paths of righteousness.

Before your world implodes, sit down and take a breath! Cry out to your Father and know that He is listening to your heart. He knows your need before the words ever leave your lips. Give Him the opportunity to intervene. Be still and know.

December 3

If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him.

 

When I find wisdom, I find life and receive favor from the Lord!

My life is blessed because I walk in the skillful wisdom of God which He has stored away for the righteous. Because I continuously seek wisdom, I understand the reverent and worshipful fear of the Lord and find the knowledge of my God. When I find wisdom, I find life and receive favor from the Lord. Wisdom comes from God, and He gives it to me freely when I ask for it. I call on Him, and He answers me and shows me great and mighty things that I did not know. Your wisdom, Lord, is more precious than rubies and better than fine gold, and nothing I desire can compare with it.

The wisdom of God brings me great blessings. It brings me long life, riches, honor and peace. As I walk in wisdom, it keeps, defends and protects me. Because I love wisdom, it guards me. Wisdom brings honor and promotes me.

By the grace of God and the wisdom He has given me, my character is pure, peace loving, considerate and gentle. I am willing to yield to reason. I am full of compassion and good fruit. My thoughts and words are sincere, straightforward, impartial and free from doubt.
