  • Verse of the Day - Psalm 97:12

    <p>Rejoice in the LORD, you who are righteous, and praise his holy name.</p><p>&mdash;<a href="http://bible.faithlife.com/bible/niv/Psalm97.12" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Psalm 97:12</a></p><h4>Thoughts on Today's Verse...</h4><p>Joy! Rejoicing! When we think about the glory of God and the grace that he has shared with us to make us righteous, how can we not rejoice? God is gloriously holy and majestic. He is eternal and just. We, on the other hand, are flawed, mortal, limited, and sinful. Yet in his rich mercy, he has made us righteous by the sacrifice of Jesus so that we could share an eternal home with him. Our response must be praise!</p><h4>My Prayer...</h4><p>Holy and righteous Father, I praise your name and give thanks for your grace. You are indeed more marvelous than my mind can comprehend and more generous than I can understand. So I offer you my praise, hoping that my life reflects my deep appreciation for all that you are and all that you have done for me. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.</p>The Thoughts and Prayer on Today's Verse are written by Phil Ware.

  • Verse of the Day - 2 Timothy 1:12

    <p>I am suffering ... Yet I am not ashamed, because I know whom I have believed, and am convinced that he is able to guard what I have entrusted to him for that day.</p><p>&mdash;<a href="http://bible.faithlife.com/bible/niv/2Timothy1.12" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">2 Timothy 1:12</a></p><h4>Thoughts on Today's Verse...</h4><p>As Paul faced very difficult circumstances near the end of his life, many of those he had led to the Lord abandoned him. But he was confident that the Lord would not abandon him! He had committed his life to Jesus as Lord. That Lord would ensure that the investment Paul had made would not be wasted. His life, his future, and his eternal destiny were entrusted to the Lord. He was confident that they were also secure in the Lord. He believed with every fiber of his being that on a special day known only to God, Jesus will return and every knee will bow and Paul's faith in the Lord will be joyously validated.</p><h4>My Prayer...</h4><p>Almighty God, I believe, but please strengthen my faith so that no matter what I may endure, my confidence in you will remain firm and my hope may remain vibrant. I entrust to you all that I am and all that I hope to be, believing fully that you will bring me through whatever lies ahead and bring me into your glorious presence with great joy. In Jesus' glorious name I pray. Amen.</p>The Thoughts and Prayer on Today's Verse are written by Phil Ware.

  • Verse of the Day - Philippians 1:20

    <p>I eagerly expect and hope that I will in no way be ashamed, but will have sufficient courage so that now as always Christ will be exalted in my body, whether by life or by death.</p><p>&mdash;<a href="http://bible.faithlife.com/bible/niv/Philippians1.20" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Philippians 1:20</a></p><h4>Thoughts on Today's Verse...</h4><p>Do you have ultimate goals by which you live? Paul certainly had at least these two: "I don't want to be ashamed but courageous" and "I want Christ to be exalted in my body, by life or by death." What are yours? Could you join Paul in his ultimate goals? How are these ultimate goals good for all of us? What makes it hard to live with these ultimate goals?</p><h4>My Prayer...</h4><p>Sacrificial and all-powerful God, forgive me for my sins, especially the sin of living with improper priorities. I want your grace and your loving-kindness to be seen in the way I conduct my life. In addition, please give me the courage to say what needs to be said to exalt you and to bring you praise. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.</p>The Thoughts and Prayer on Today's Verse are written by Phil Ware.

  • Verse of the Day - Romans 15:1

    <p>We who are strong ought to bear with the failings of the weak and not to please ourselves.</p><p>&mdash;<a href="http://bible.faithlife.com/bible/niv/Romans15.1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Romans 15:1</a></p><h4>Thoughts on Today's Verse...</h4><p>Dear friend of Jesus, have patience with those around you who are not yet what God intends for them to be &#8212; remembering that we are not yet what God intends for us to be. In the process of "bearing with" their failings, you may just find that others are more patient with your failings and more thankful for your faithfulness. Of course, the goal of our being patient isn't to benefit ourselves. Instead, we do it to bless others, knowing that many of our brothers and sisters in Christ are hanging on to their faith, hope, and love by the thinnest of threads. Let's never let them go and never cause them to stumble!</p><h4>My Prayer...</h4><p>Tender Shepherd, give me more patience with those who are struggling and who need your strength and my encouragement. Forgive me for not noticing their struggles the way that you do. Help me show them how patient you are as you perfect them in your holiness. Thank you, O Lord, for your help in this area of my heart as I seek to be a blessing to my brothers and sisters in grace. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.</p>The Thoughts and Prayer on Today's Verse are written by Phil Ware.

  • Verse of the Day - 2 Thessalonians 1:3

    <p>We ought always to thank God for you, brothers, and rightly so, because your faith is growing more and more, and the love every one of you has for each other is increasing.</p><p>&mdash;<a href="http://bible.faithlife.com/bible/niv/2Thessalonians1.3" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">2 Thessalonians 1:3</a></p><h4>Thoughts on Today's Verse...</h4><p>When was the last time you found a new brother or sister in Christ and told that precious person all the things they were doing right? Don't you think that's too long, and that you should let them know today? Let's be more committed to encouraging and affirming others who are in Christ as well as giving thanks to God for them.</p><h4>My Prayer...</h4><p>Saving Shepherd of lost souls, thank you for the new Christians in our church and in my life. Bless them and protect them from the Evil One and use us, your children and their brothers and sisters, to be there to help and encourage them on their journey to perfection in Christ. In the holy name of Christ Jesus, my Lord. Amen.</p>The Thoughts and Prayer on Today's Verse are written by Phil Ware.

  • Verse of the Day - 2 Timothy 1:3

    <p>I [Paul] thank God, whom I serve, as my forefathers did, with a clear conscience, as night and day I constantly remember you [Timothy] in my prayers.</p><p>&mdash;<a href="http://bible.faithlife.com/bible/niv/2Timothy1.3" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">2 Timothy 1:3</a></p><h4>Thoughts on Today's Verse...</h4><p>Paul is near the end of his life, facing persecution in a horrible prison. Many of the young men whom he had mentored have left the faith or have turned against him. How can he give thanks? Paul speaks of his confidence in his own victorious future with Jesus and in his son in the faith, Timothy. What makes this special is that he communicates it to Timothy. He's not content to just give thanks to God in prayer! He also tells Timothy how precious he is in this letter. When was the last time you sent a note of thanks to the people you appreciate, letting them know they give you reason to rejoice before the throne of God? </p><h4>My Prayer...</h4><p>Matchless Father of all grace, thank you! Thank you for every spiritual blessing I have in Christ. Thank you today for the special people who are such a blessing to me in my walk of faith...(take a minute and just say their names before the Father). Help me grow in my ability to show my appreciation and approval of these precious people, so that they can know what a blessing they are to me. In Jesus' name I thank you. Amen.</p>The Thoughts and Prayer on Today's Verse are written by Phil Ware.

  • Verse of the Day - Romans 8:37

    <p>In all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.</p><p>&mdash;<a href="http://bible.faithlife.com/bible/niv/Romans8.37" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Romans 8:37</a></p><h4>Thoughts on Today's Verse...</h4><p>Are we really conquerors despite "trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword"? Yes! That is the ultimate Christian assurance. Nothing can separate us from God's love in Christ. The Evil One and his allies can kill our bodies, ruin our finances, wrack our bodies with pain, and seek to destroy our relationships. However, the Evil One cannot have our hearts when they are surrendered to Jesus. And when our hearts belong to Jesus, so does our future! The empty tomb of Jesus assures us that our future with him is glorious, victorious, and unending.</p><h4>My Prayer...</h4><p>Give me eyes to see, O God, and a heart to believe that Jesus' victory over death is my victory, too! I don't want to be derailed from my hope, faith, and love by the difficulties of life. Instead, I want to be a living testimony to your power, victory, and grace. In Jesus' name, and for his glory, I live and pray. Amen.</p>The Thoughts and Prayer on Today's Verse are written by Phil Ware.
