Weary No More, My Lord

Jeremiah 31 25

 

Today’s Word

Weary

Exhausted in strength, endurance, vigor or freshness

 

Today’s Verse

Jeremiah 31:25

I will fully satisfy the needs of those who are weary and fully refresh the souls of those who are faint

 

Weary and Weak

There are days when we feel exhausted, not only physically, but also emotionally. It seems as our mind is filled with worries. All together causes us to lose our grip on life, even if for a moment. Needless to say, we become weary, we lose our strength, it’s hard to endure the day.

Satisfy and Refresh

However, God says that He will satisfy our needs when we are weary, and he will bring a breath of fresh air into our souls so that we may regain our strength. Cling on this promise. Seek God’s refreshing strength. Put on the armor of the Holy Spirit and give it your cares, heartaches, and concerns. Let your mind be renewed by the spirit and his grace.

Weary No More

After we let God refresh our spirit, we free our heart, mind, and soul to rejuvenate one more time. It is a completely new mindset. God’s word, spirit, and love will surround our mind and fill it with strength so that we may no longer feel faint.

Thank God

Thank you Lord for strengthening my mind, body, and spirit, for filling my heart with hope, my soul with strength, and my mind with loving scripture. Guide me today, and every day. Remind me to be weary no more.

How Glorious to be Saved

ephesians 1 13Word for Today

Seal

To decide irrevocably: as in “to seal someone’s fate”

 

Verse for Today

Ephesians 1:13

And when you heard the word of truth (the gospel of your salvation) – when you believed in Christ  you were marked with the seal of the promised Holy Spirit

 

The day we accepted Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior, our fate was sealed. We received the promise of the Holy Spirit and God accepted us into His Kingdom. What a glorious day that was.

 

“Oh! How I love Jesus, for all He has done for me.

Oh! Wonderful savior who gave His life for me.

 

I remember long ago when my savior freed my soul,

What a glorious day that was.

It all seemed to be the end, but his mercy intervened.

Now, I am saved.

 

When temptation came up close,

He made sure that it was gone”

 

How wonderful is to be saved, to have the Holy Spirit dwell in us, to have Jesus by our side, and to be called a child of God.

It is a decision to which I have no regret.

ACCEPT JESUS TODAY. JOIN THE FAMILY

Hidden Secrets: Truth Revealed

Today’s Word

 Hidden

Keep (something) secret; prevent from being known or noticed.

Today’s Verse

 Luke 12

 2 Nothing is hidden that will not be revealed, and nothing is secret that will not be made known.

Secrets have a way of revealing themselves. In time, all is known. As we grow in faith and knowledge of the Word of God, the Holy Spirit works in our hearts so that we may confess all our sins, not some, all.

It is such a relief to our heavy hearts once we confess. Our burden is lifted, our heart its cleansed of worries, and our mind is freed from guilt.

Burdens are Lifted

Carrying a secret is like carrying a huge rock on our backs. It weighs us down. It keeps us from working at full capacity. It keeps us from reaching our goals.

Confessing our sins lifts our burdens from our hearts and minds. It stops weighing us down. It allows us to focus on the word of God.

 Hearts are Cleansed

After we confess all of our sins, our hearts are cleansed by God’s forgiveness and acceptance. Instead of putting our efforts into hiding our secret, we can now place our efforts on learning, studying, and applying the Word of God. It can now speak to our cleansed hearts so that we may continue to grow as believers.

A cleansed heart seeks pureness, kindness, and love.

 Mind is Free from Guilt

 After our hearts are cleansed, our mind is freed from all guilt. We have our thoughts of God in the forefront. We no longer have to worry, or feel guilty for hiding our secret. We let it out and with that; we released our mind from its binding guilty thoughts.

As our mind is freed, it seeks guidance, self-control, and knowledge.

Family: A Spiritual Unity

 

 

Today’s Word

Family

Those who descend from one common progenitor; a tribe or race; kindred; lineage.

A brotherhood of persons or nations united by political or religious ties.

Today’s Verse

 1 Peter 2

 17 Honor all people, love the family of believers, fear God, honor the king.

Earthly Family

When we are born, we become part of our earthly family. They provide us with our physical needs. They teach us about love, unity, and care. We form a bond that lasts a lifetime. We become part of its history.

Spiritual Family

When we are born again, we become part of our spiritual family. A unity formed by our belief in Jesus Christ, his resurrection, and our salvation. It teaches us about loving one another, honoring those around us, and respecting each other. We are part of the body of Christ; we become sisters and brothers in faith. We form a bond that last through eternity. We become part of the Book of Life.

Note:

I thank my parents for giving me life, so that I could live and choose to love God, and so I could find His promises of life everlasting, faith by His Grace, and love unconditional.

Do you have a spiritual family?

John 1

12  But to all who have received him – those who believe in his name – he has given the right to become God’s children 

13 – children not born by human parents or by human desire or a husband’s decision, but by God.

Holy Spirit: The Presence of God

 

Today’s Word

Holy Spirit

The spirit of God.

The presence of God as part of a person’s religious experience.

Today’s Verse

Luke 12

for the Holy Spirit will teach you at that moment what you must say.”

 The Holy Spirit resides in each of us that believe that Jesus died for our sins, that He is our redeemer. It guides us, makes us conscious of our words and actions, convicts us when we sin, and grants us peace when we do right by Him, by others, and by our own selves.

When we are faced with a situation good or bad, the Holy Spirit, through us, speaks on our behalf. It allows just the right words to flow.

The Holy Spirit, which dwells in each of us…

Guides us

Each day, we depend on the Holy Spirit to direct our lives. It provides us with the tools we need in each situation we may experience. As we grow in the word of God, we unleash new knowledge that anchors itself in our hearts and allows us to make better decisions. It helps us get through the day in a manner that glorifies God with goodness and kindness in our hearts.

Convicts Us

If our actions or words do not please God, the Holy Spirit convicts us. It lets us know that what we have said or done is wrong. It gently scolds us. It places a burden in our hearts that shows us our wrongs. Not only so, but it shows us what would be right so that we make take corrective action, whether it be repentance or apology.

Grants us Peace

Lastly, the Holy Spirit grants us peace in our hearts when we do or say the right things, when we correct our wrongs, and when we repent. It is a peace that gives us calmness, joyfulness, and goodness. It is a peace abundant with acceptance, forgiveness, and love. It gives rest to the unsettledness of our hearts. It affirms our Faith.
