Hope For Today #224 – Faith Praises God For Long-Ago Plans!

Faith Praises God For Long-Ago Plans!

Lord, you are my God; I will exalt you. I will praise your name, for you have accomplished wonders, plans formed long ago, with perfect faithfulness.” (Isaiah 25:1, CSB)

If you’ve listened to some Christians over the past year and a half you would think they were baptized in pickle juice! Sure, life is hard. It always has been. Sometimes it’s worse, sometimes it’s better. yet, it’s always hard. However, as a surrendered follower of King Jesus, we have the inside edge! Our God laid out OUR plans long ago – long before we were born. He knows all the things He has planned for us – our well-being, our incredible future, plans to give us hope!

So today, if you are in need of a “faith boost,” give us TWO minutes and allow us to remind you of the supernatural power of your God!

Hope For Today #223 – Faith Clings to King Jesus!

Faith Clings to King Jesus!

The Spirit of the Lord will rest on him— a Spirit of wisdom and understanding, a Spirit of counsel and strength, a Spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the Lord.” (Isaiah 11:2, CSB)

In these complicated days, we can be SO grateful that we have a God who shares His understanding and counsel with us! While the devil whispers, “Give up! Just quit!” the Spirit of the Lord says, “Greater is He that is in you than He that is in the world!” While the days may confuse, the Spirit breathes life and hope and help!

Hope For Today #222 – Faith Refuses to Live Rebelliously!

 

Faith Refuses to Live Rebelliously!

The vision concerning Judah and Jerusalem that Isaiah son of Amoz saw during the reigns of Kings Uzziah, Jotham, Ahaz, and Hezekiah of Judah. Listen, heavens, and pay attention, earth, for the Lord has spoken: “I have raised children and brought them up, but they have rebelled against me. The ox knows its owner, and the donkey its master’s feeding trough, but Israel does not know; my people do not understand.”” (Isaiah 1:1–3, CSB)

There surely seems to be a spirit in our age to rebel against everyone and everything! Society as a whole appears to be coming apart at the seams. And yet, God has designed government, family, and the social order of things for our benefit, our prosperity, and our peace. In the midst of the chaos, God’s people are to be the “salt and light” of our culture.

So today, if you are in need of a “faith boost,” give us TWO minutes and allow us to remind you of the supernatural power of your God!

Hope For Today #221 – Faith Enjoys All God’s Goodness!

Faith Enjoys All God’s Goodness!

I know that there is nothing better for them than to rejoice and enjoy the good life. It is also the gift of God whenever anyone eats, drinks, and enjoys all his efforts.” (Ecclesiastes 3:12–13, CSB)

Enjoyment – even the word makes some of God’s children cringe! Why is it that so many people seem to be so negative about enjoying the goodness of God? As we turn our attention to the Word of God we see repeatedly how God have us so many things to enjoy as a demonstration of His love for us. And, of course, we are not to hoard those things. We are to share them with others! THAT is the best part of the good life God gives us!

So today, if you are in need of a “faith boost,” give us TWO minutes and allow us to remind you of the supernatural power of your God!

Hope For Today #220 – Faith Publicly Praises One’s Spouse!

Faith Publicly Praises One’s Spouse!

Her children rise up and call her blessed; her husband also praises her: “Many women have done noble deeds, but you surpass them all!” Charm is deceptive and beauty is fleeting, but a woman who fears the Lord will be praised. Give her the reward of her labor, and let her works praise her at the city gates.” (Proverbs 31:28–31, CSB)

Being married to the right person is MORE than enough for this life! God truly blessed Doc when He led him to her. And what an incredible marriage and ministry they have together. And, if you are anywhere near Doc or Kate, you will hear ALL about the other one! They love to honor and adore their spouses to the Global Glory of God! And that is the way it should be … according to God’s Word!

So today, if you are in need of a “faith boost,” give us TWO minutes and allow us to remind you of the supernatural power of your God!

Hope For Today #219 – Faith Looks to One’s Harvest!

Faith Looks to One’s Own Harvest!

There is profit in all hard work, but endless talk leads only to poverty.” (Proverbs 14:23, CSB)

Who doesn’t like something for FREE! During the Pandemic it seemed like most everyone had their hand out. Yet, the Bible tells us the way to success and wealth is a different path. And, that way seems less and less desired. While many people would rather someone else work and they receive – Sounds like what little kids do, doesn’t it? – the Bible teaches that God’s children work hard and enjoy the profits of their labors!

Hope For Today #218 – Faith Avoids The Worthless!

 

Faith Avoids The Worthless!

A worthless person, a wicked man goes around speaking dishonestly, winking his eyes, signaling with his feet, and gesturing with his fingers. He always plots evil with perversity in his heart; he stirs up trouble. Therefore calamity will strike him suddenly; he will be shattered instantly, beyond recovery.” (Proverbs 6:12–15, CSB)

Now, more than ever, we need to be making wise decisions as we seek to emerge from this Pandemic! The people closest to us will often determine our success or failure. Remember the old adage: “Don’t get your financial advice from your broke relatives!” The same is true today as we emerge from this mess! Choose the people you do life with very carefully!

So today, if you are in need of a “faith boost,” give us TWO minutes and allow us to remind you of the supernatural power of your God!

Hope For Today #217 – Faith Explodes In Happiness!

 

Faith Explodes In Happiness!

How happy is everyone who fears the Lord, who walks in his ways! You will surely eat what your hands have worked for. You will be happy, and it will go well for you.” (Psalm 128:1–2, CSB)

Happiness and Pandemic don’t seem to go together, do they? Yet today we discover that happiness is NOT “locked down” to our circumstances. Happiness comes from our choices! Happiness is watching the supernatural hand of God intervene for us because of WHOM we know, not WHAT we are experiencing!

So today, if you are in need of a “faith boost,” give us TWO minutes and allow us to remind you of the supernatural power of your God!

Hope For Today #215 – Faith Is Shielded By God’s Favor!

Faith Is Shielded By God’s Favor!

For you, Lord, bless the righteous one; you surround him with favor like a shield.” (Psalm 5:12, CSB)

In the midst of the storm we either shine like lighthouses or we cower in fear! King Jesus has called us to be “the Light of the World!” The world needs His light so much more as things grow darker and more evil by the day. YOU are the key to enlightening YOUR corner of this dark world. How? King David again shows us the way by writing out His prayer … and we can use that prayer as a guide to become the Lighthouse of Hope and Help for the global glory of King Jesus!

Hope For Today #214 – Faith Lives In Peace And Safety!

Faith Lives In Peace and Safety!

I will both lie down and sleep in peace, for you alone, Lord, make me live in safety.” (Psalm 4:8, CSB)

People can be so mean to us, can’t they? And remember, almost always we have only one recourse: Go to God for our vindication! We have to cry out to Jesus for help! But how? King David of Israel gives us a great model to pray from … and we can see how he goes from frustration and anxiety to peace and calm as he prays. What a model for us!
