I Need You

By |2019-08-04T09:51:54-05:00July 24th, 2019|Daily Truth, Encouragement, Seek Truth|

My heart aches when I think how far we have gone – how far we’ve removed Your Word from our lives. Lord, we have conformed to the world and lies surround us. We have turned away from Your truth and lives are being torn apart. We need You. I need You!

You speak to my soul and calm my fears as I read Your Word. Your truth tells me, “If my people who are called by my name humble themselves, and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land” (2 Chronicles 7:14 ESV).

Lord, I will stand firm against the world and seek Your truth – Your Word for my life. It is time to put You first in everything I do. Let Your will be done – not mine. And I pray You will open the eyes of all Your children to do the same. Only then, You will heal our land.

Quit Trying So Hard

Lord, someone today needs to hear this message. Equip me to share with them that they do not have to feel burdened by the need to appease You. They need to know that their sins should not keep them from coming to You because they feel that they need to do something good first to make up for what they have done. Your truth tells me that You, Jesus, invites all of us to rest in You. You didn’t come into the world to condemn us, but to save us. We don’t – I don’t need to earn Your approval. It’s already given to all those who trust, believe and depend on You, Lord Jesus. It has been given to me!

The Good Role Model

My heart breaks for those who grow up without role models in their lives. Role models that reveal Your truth. Lord, they are formed by their parent’s actions or lack of – their mistakes and unhealthy choices. They long for acceptance, approval and love. But it never comes. And when they become adults, they are expected to know how to parent, how to love others, how to have a strong marriage. Without You, Father, disaster is looming around the corner as the cycle continues to circle.

I hear You speak to my heart through Your Spirit that You are choosing me to remind others to run to You – their heavenly Father – as I did many years ago. It is Your truth, Word and guidance they need to know how to love others and have successful relationships.

Your truth tells me that there is, “one God and Father of all who is over all and through all and in all” (Ephesians 4:6 NASB). I cling to Your promise, “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will hear you. You will seek me and find me, when you seek me with all your heart” (Jeremiah 29:11-13 NASB).

You are my Father, my role model, who teaches me how to live life. With Your love and guidance, I can conquer whatever hides around the next corner. Use me to share this truth with others!

The Flight Delay

I’m astonished, God, how You reveal Your presence even in the most tense circumstances. A flight delay infuriated the young man sitting next to me. His anger burned as I quietly listened to him venting his current frustrations, which led to his unhappy past. I waited patiently for You to give me the specific words to share with him. And when You did, I was able to share how You changed my life.

Lord, the world is desperate for You and they need to know Your truth for their life. I long to be that person who will share with others about Your peace, love and grace and will lead them to You.

Just A Girl

Do you ever feel that your life doesn’t matter – that you’re just a girl or just a guy going through the motions of life? That your life has no meaning? Maybe someone has mocked your existence or your calling? Don’t listen to them. It’s a lie.

Your heavenly Father loves you and wants you to seek His truth. Truth is – you are not just a girl or just a guy, but you are a child of God. His truth tells me and you, “See how great a love the Father has bestowed on us, that we would be called children of God; and such we are. For this reason the world does not know us, because it did not know Him” (1 John 3:1 NASB).

You are a child of God living in His light. He has placed you today in the place where He wants you. Shine bright no matter where you are – He is doing great things through your life!
