Verse of the Day for Saturday, May 11, 2019

A wicked man puts up a bold front, but an upright man gives thought to his ways. —Proverbs 21:29

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

When we harbor wickedness in our hearts, there are all sorts of "fronts" we have to keep up so people won't know the truth about us. But if righteousness is our aim, we'll try to live up to that goal with honesty. When we blow it, we'll be honest and ask forgiveness, learning from our mistakes. We won't put up a facade. We know that even though we're flawed, God is not through working on us yet!

My Prayer...

Thank you, Almighty God, for the many times you have forgiven me. I'm sorry for the times I've tried to hide my sin from others and from you. I want to live an honest, upright life, bringing glory to you in what I do, what I say, and how I treat others. Please grant me this grace with increasing measure day by day. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.

Verse of the Day for Sunday, May 12, 2019

Pray for us that the message of the Lord may spread rapidly and be honored, just as it was with you.
—2 Thessalonians 3:1

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

What can you do to help the spread of the Gospel and help increase the number of those who are saved each day? Well, there are many things: put in a good word for Jesus, share your faith with a friend, go on a mission trip, send financial support to a missionary, and many others. But one of the most important things you can do is to pray! Pray for missionaries and preachers and those who minister and share the Word of God and the grace of Jesus through the Internet, radio, television, and print. Pray for the message to spread rapidly and pray for it to grow in power and influence.

My Prayer...

Loving Shepherd, I know you agonize over those who are lost. I pray that you will empower missionaries worldwide to speak the truth of the Gospel with boldness. I pray that you touch the hearts of those who hear so they will experience your salvation. Use me in whatever way you choose to be a part of the spreading of your salvation. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.

Today is Mother's Day - Sunday, May 12th, 2019.
Our Father above knows all about mothers:

Proverbs 31:25-31
25 Strength and honor are her clothing;
She shall rejoice in time to come.
26 She opens her mouth with wisdom,
And on her tongue is the law of kindness.
27 She watches over the ways of her household,
And does not eat the bread of idleness.
28 Her children arise and call her blessed;
Her husband also, and he praises her:
29 “Many women do noble things,
But you surpass them all.”
30 Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting;
But a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.
31 Honor her for all that her hands have done,
And let her works bring her praise at the city gate.

Verse of the Day for Monday, May 13, 2019

“Set a watch, O LORD, before my mouth; keep the door of my lips.” —Psalm 141:3

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

How important is our speech? Jesus said it revealed what was going on in our hearts. Proverbs repeatedly tells us that our words can wound or heal. The apostle Paul tells us to speak only what will benefit those who hear us. In light of these Scriptures, this prayer of David is very appropriate. Only God can help us tame the tongue and use its power to bless. Let's invite him into our world of speech and ask him to take control of it as he does our hearts!

My Prayer...

Most holy and righteous Father, I don't want my language to ever betray you or wound your children. Please help me redeem my speech and use it to glorify you, bless your children, and speak of salvation to those who do not know your Son. In the name of Jesus I pray. Amen.

Verse of the Day for Tuesday, May 14, 2019

“Incline not my heart to any evil thing, to practise wicked works with men that work iniquity: and let me not eat of their dainties.” —Psalm 141:4

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

How important is it for you to be pure? How important is it for you to be righteous? For David, who had experienced the elation of sharing an intimate holy relationship with God and the utter pain of miserably failing God, guarding his heart was of ultimate importance. He didn't want to have any part of evil. He didn't want to be attracted to it. He didn't want to be a part of those who committed vile deeds. He didn't even want to take part in the luxuries and feasts. What are we willing to ask God to withhold from us to keep us from evil?

My Prayer...

Father, don't let me be tempted by what is vile, hideous, or evil. Give me a holy revulsion for what is false and deceptive. Give me clarity of sight and purity of heart to be able to see evil and the things associated with it so that I can stay far away from the tempter's snare and the things that would soil your holy name. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.

Verse of the Day for Wednesday, May 15, 2019

For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost.—Luke 19:10

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

Jesus came so that the last could be first, the sick could be healed, the sinners could be saved, and the lost could be found. That was his purpose: to fix that which was broken — not just us, but our world, our humanity, and all that goes with it. So how can we wear the name of Jesus and not live with his passion and purpose toward what we see lost in our world?

My Prayer...

O loving Father and Almighty God, please stir a holy passion in your people, and especially in me, so that we may more nearly reflect Jesus' purpose in our lives, our families, and our churches. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.

Verse of the Day for Thursday, May 16, 2019

Withhold not good from them to whom it is due, when it is in the power of thine hand to do it.—Proverbs 3:27

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

Rather than "looking out for" only "number 1," we are to look out for those deserving of good — whether that be help, aide, praise, love, affection, attention, praise — and to act decisively to give them what they need and deserve. We are to be a people, as Paul tells us, that Jesus saved so we would be "eager to do good deeds" (Titus 2:14).

My Prayer...

Father, forgive me for my selfishness. I so often notice only my needs or what I deserve. There are so many good and deserving people you have placed in my life that have blessed me. Use your Spirit to open my eyes and my heart to see those around me that I can bless and give me the courage to act in ways that glorify you and are a blessing to others. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
