Proverbs 21:31

"The horse is made ready for the day of battle, but
victory rests with the Lord." (NIV)

"The horse is prepared against the day of battle: but
safety is of the LORD." (KJV)

It is right for us to do all we can to resist and defeat
the enemy. The Lord commands us to be prepared,
alert, and ready. But we are only successful in
defeating the enemy through the mighty power of
God with us. After all, the battle is His.

Heavenly Father, please help us to be ready and
prepared to face the trials and attacks that will
surely occur in this life. Help us to always be
aware that the battle is yours, and we cannot
be victorious without you going before us.
We pray in Jesus name. Amen.

Ephesians 5:10

"And find out what pleases the Lord." (NIV)

"Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord." (KJV)

We are children of the Light. Our very lives, in speaking
and behaving, will be showing what is pleasing to the Lord.
If we continue to walk in His Spirit, study His Word, and
use discernment, we will know what pleases Him and we
will share it with this lost world.

Heavenly Father, we ask for mercy in our failure to be
seeking out those things that please you. Help us, we
pray, to lives our lives as a quest to be finding those
things that are pleasing to you. Give us the desire to
pray, study Your Word, and use the gifts you have so
freely given us. We pray in Jesus' name. Amen.

Hebrews 10:24

"And let us consider how we may spur one another
on toward love and good deeds." (NIV)

"And let us consider one another to provoke unto
love and to good works." (KJV)

To consider something is to focus in thought about it.
We are encouraged to really think about our brothers
and sisters in Christ and how we might get them
motivated to be Christlike. In the same way, we are to
think seriously about our fellow Christians and the
needs they have, so that we can demonstrate love and
good works to them. We have a lot of considering to do.

Heavenly Father, we ask your forgiveness for not
taking the time to consider our brothers and sisters
in Christ and for not getting them motivated to do
more acts of love and good works. Forgive us for
being selfish and leaving your work undone. Help us
to consider these things. In Jesus' name. Amen.

1 Peter 4:16

"If you suffer as a Christian, do not be ashamed,
but praise God that you bear that name." (NIV)

"Yet if any man suffer as a Christian, let him not be
ashamed; but let him glorify God on this behalf."

Suffering is a human reality that no one on earth
escapes. The problem is, most of the time we
suffer because of something we've done or we
get in the crossfire of natural consequences. But,
how often do we suffer because we are children of
God, Christians, doing His will? If we suffer for that,
we can rejoice and give praise to the Lord, for He
will honor us and bless us for suffering for His sake.

Heavenly Father, please forgive us when we complain
about suffering, when it is our own doing or we are merely
experiencing a part of being in this world. Bad things will
happen to everyone. Help us Lord, to rejoice if we suffer
because we are living for You and we are doing Your will.
In Jesus' name. Amen.

Isaiah 59:1

Surely the arm of the Lord is not too short to save,
nor His ear too dull to hear."(NIV)

"Behold, the LORD's hand is not shortened, that it
cannot save; neither his ear heavy, that it cannot
hear." (KJV)

There are those who believe that their lives are so far
gone that the Lord would never save them. As children
of God, we know that there is no sin that the blood of
Christ cannot cleanse. His hand will reach out to the
vilest of sinners. For those who feel that God does not
hear nor answer their prayers, we can assure them that
God hears all prayers and answers each one. The answer
may not be what was expected but it will surely come.
His ears are never closed or deficient in hearing us.

Heavenly Father, how thankful we are that you are able
and willing to cleanse us from all sins by your great hand.
We praise you that you are always listening to our prayers
and the answers are on the way. Help us to encourage
others with these truths and let us be comforted by your
Holy Spirit when our faith becomes weak. In Jesus' name.

Matthew 23:11

"The greatest among you will be your servant." (NIV)

"But he that is greatest among you shall be your
servant." (KJV)

The definition of a servant is a person in the service
of another. We seldom think of a chief executive officer
or a pastor or a government leader as being a servant.
We think of those people as ones to whom we make our
services available. But this is the world's idea of a servant.
In God's kingdom, He says that the greatest among us are
our servants. If we are freely serving others in the love
of God, we are greatest in His kingdom.

Heavenly Father, how we praise you that your Son, Jesus
Christ was the greatest servant of all. Please help us to
follow Him and serve anywhere, anytime, with anyone we
can. Thank you Lord, for when we serve others in love, we
are serving you. In Jesus' name, Amen.

1 Corinthians 9:19

"Though I am free and belong to no man, I make
myself a slave to everyone, to win as many as
possible." (NIV)

"For though I be free from all men, yet have I made
myself servant unto all, that I might gain the
more." (KJV)

If we have the key that unlocks the prison door and
takes us to blessed freedom, why would we not want
to pass that key on to others, so that they will be free
and be able to pass the key on to others? That's just
what happens when we accept Jesus Christ as our
Saviour. We are set free. To take the time, energy, and
effort to share the gospel message with others, is to
make ourselves servants to those who need the Word.

Heavenly Father, we ask your forgiveness for being
selfish with out time, talents, money, and energy. At
times we get our focus off of why we are here. Help
us to remember that someone took the time to share
the gospel with us. Help us to be servants to those who
need to hear the good news. We pray in Jesus' name.

Galatians 5:13

"You my brothers were called to be free. But do not
use your freedom to indulge in the sinful nature;
rather serve one another in love." (NIV)

"For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty;
only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh,
but by love serve one another." (KJV)

Oh, the thought of being free is such a wonderful
thing. Do we give thought to how we became free
and from what we were freed? We were made free
by the sacrifice of Jesus Christ on the cross at Calvary.
We are free from the chains and binding ropes of
sin and our own selfish wills. We no longer have to
give in to those things we know we should not do.
We are free to live so that we become more and more
like Christ. We are free to live as servants of the Most
High God and to serve one another in love.

Heavenly Father, how can we ever thank you enough
for setting us free. Free to love and serve one another
as you love us. Help us Lord to use our freedom solely
for Your kingdom, we pray in Jesus' name. Amen

Judges 2:10

"After the whole generation had been gathered to
their fathers, another generation grew up, who knew
neither the Lord nor what He had done for Israel." (NIV)

"And also all that generation were gathered unto
their fathers: and there arose another generation after
them, which knew not the LORD, nor yet the works which
he had done for Israel." (KJV)

When all of us who are living on the earth now have died
and a totally new generation is ruling over the earth, will
they know the Lord? Will we have taught our children,
our children's children, and their children about the Lord
God Almighty? It is our responsibility to teach our children
the ways of the Lord and to live that life every moment in
their presence. If we fail to do so, we will answer to the
Lord God himself and we will be responsible for a
generation who does not know Him.

Heavenly Father, please help us to live and teach every
moment we live to our children Your reality and greatness.
Help us to make this our priority and we pray that our next
generation will be one that follows Your ways and
continues to teach and live in the ways of God. We ask in

James 1:19

"My dear brothers, take note of this: Everyone should
be quick to listen, show to speak, and slow to become
angry." (NIV)

"Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be
swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath." (KJV)

As humans, it is so easy for us to react to situations
with our emotions rather than our spirits. Our emotions
cause us to react, which involves no thought on our
part. Our spirits allow us to respond, which involves
listening to the Holy Spirit, recalling God's Word, and
making a conscious choice to act in a Godly way. Are
we letting our emotions control us, or are we allowing
our spirits, under the control of the Holy Spirit, to
direct our actions? Are we reacting or responding?

Heavenly Father, we know that you are aware of the
weaknesses in us as humans. We need your help in
responding to the difficult and hard things that we
encounter in our daily lives. Help us to learn to be
responders, listening and choosing to obey the Godly
way, instead of reacting with our emotions. We pray
in Jesus' name. Amen.

"What I tell you in darkness, that speak ye in light:
and what ye hear in the ear, that preach ye upon
the housetops." (KJV)

If we are in a dark time and we don't sense God's
presence, this is the time that we keep silent
because God will speak to us that which we are to
share with the world. The darkness will end, don't
question it. Be still and wait for that message from
God. He Is faithful.

Heavenly Father, please help us to remember when
we are in the middle of a dark time, a crisis, a time
of barrenness, You are there. Give us sensitive ears
to hear You speak to us and learn from our trials.
Help us to give out in the daylight what you have

"For we are God's fellow workers; you are God's

"For we are labourers together with God: ye are
God's husbandry, ye are God's building." (KJV)

If we are fellow workers of God's, why is it we
question the circumstances in our lives that we
don't understand? God is the head engineer. He
has all things orchestrated with a purpose. Our
jobs are to follow Him, obey His Word, love one
another, and reach out to the lost. We are to do
that no matter what situations we are in. God
knows where we are because He is there with
us. Keep working.

Heavenly Father, sometimes our faith falters
and we become anxious about the situations
we encounter that are difficult. Forgive us for
not fully trusting that You are in control and
have everything worked out for our good and
Your glory. Help us to keep working, knowing
we will get through all this world hands to us.

"Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew
a right spirit within me." (KJV)

The Lord never asks us to fix those things in our
hearts that are impure in His sight. He asks us to
examine ourselves to see if there is impurity there.
If there is, He asks us to let His light shine on it so
that He can make it right. Allowing God to shine His
light on our impure thoughts, feelings, and actions
is a difficult thing. Our human nature tells us to hide
from the Light. The more often we examine ourselves
and ask God to purify our hearts by letting His light
shine on us, the less often we will find impurity there.

Heavenly Father, help us to frequently examine our
hearts so that we can bring those things that are
displeasing to You into Your light. Then we will know
You are making our heart clean. We ask in Jesus' name,

Hebrews 11:8

"By faith, Abraham, when called to go to a place he
would later receive as his inheritance, obeyed and
went, even though he did not know where he was
going." (NIV)

"By faith Abraham, when he was called to go out into a
place which he should after receive for an inheritance,
obeyed; and he went out, not knowing whither he
went." (KJV)

If we are obeying and walking ahead by faith, we have
no reason to worry about the journey, knowing we will
get to our destination. Our faith is in God and His promise.
The journey does not need to be of concern to us, nor do
we need to know the details of the journey. All we need
is to know our God and trust that He will accomplish in
us and for us what He has promised. Our obedience in
our walk reveals the level of our faith.

Heavenly Father, we can't thank you enough that You
are always faithful to Your Word and we don't have to
worry about how You will accomplish Your will in our
lives. Help us, Lord, to trust You fully even if we don't
understand what You are doing or where You are taking
us. We ask in Jesus' name. Amen.

Luke 24:38

"He said to them, 'Why are you troubled and why
do doubts rise in your minds?'" (NIV)

"And he said unto them, Why are ye troubled? and
why do thoughts arise in your hearts?" (KJV)

If we seek God in prayer for the answer to our needs,
are we really seeking God or are we seeking the answers
to our needs. Most often we are so overcome by our need,
it becomes our focus. That's when unrest, worry, and fear
begin and we become discouraged. God will answer our
prayers when we seek Him and He see that the time is
right to bring the answer. Our faith in that will keep us
from becoming discouraged and anxious when we don't
see immediate answers to our prayers.

Heavenly Father, please forgive us for getting our focus
off of You and your majesty and allowing ourselves to
fix our minds on our petitions and needs. Help us to trust
that You know what is best and You will always hear and
answer our prayers. Give us peace in knowing that the
answer may not come when we think it should or in the
way we think it will. We pray this in Jesus' name.

At some point in our Christian walk, there will be a time
when we are prompted or urged by the Holy Spirit to do
something for God. It is then that we seek Him as to when
we are to proceed and then let Him orchestrate the
circumstances. Unfortunately, we tend to get ahead of God
and even dictate to Him how we are going to accomplish
His will. If we accept God's leading and wait so that we can
follow Him, He will bring circumstances to do what He has
asked of us in such perfection and completeness, we will be

"You were bought at a price. Therefore, honor God with

"For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in
your body, and in your spirit, which are God's." (KJV)

Before Jesus Christ offered His body to purchase us as
His own, He created our bodies. Then He took all the
penalties of the whole world's sin by a humiliating and cruel
death. He had no sin, He took ours for us. He bought us. If
we have accepted His ownership of our lives, we will make
sure that we honor Him with our bodies and spirits by living
pure and holy lives. We cannot repay Him in any other way.

Heavenly Father, we cannot praise and thank you enough
for the sacrifice of your blood to purchase us from the
bondage of sin. Help us, Lord, to live our lives so that we

If everyone in the world responded to the difficult

kind of world would we have? If we all responded
with the compassion, grace, patience, mercy, and
truth that our God does, how would this world be?
We should be on our knees praising and thanking
our God that He is compassionate and slow to
get angry. If He acted like we do sometimes, we

"For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither

Those who have chosen to walk in the ways of the world
have rejected the light. In fact, they despise the light. It
exposes their guilt and ungodly ways. So they refuse to
go near the light. We all notice these people. They sit in
the back at church or don't go at all. They stay distanced
from those who live and speak in Godly ways. If we really
examine ourselves, we will be able to determine how
willing we are to approach the light.

Heavenly Father, we praise you and give you honor for
giving us light. Your light helps us to keep our lives
so that we can approach the light without guilt and
shame. Forgive us for those times we cannot approach

There are so many self proclaimed teachers and leaders

God's word says it takes much more for a teacher called

knowledge that not only comes out in speech, but is
evident in consistent and holy daily living. Humility

have called people to be wise and knowledgeable in

"Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the
tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto

The very precious Son of God took all of your sins, my
sins, and the sins of the whole world into His body. He
had no sin of His own. But, He took the punishment for
us so that it would be as though we had not sinned at
all. It was a sacrifice of agony and horror driven by His
love for us. The bondage of sin then no longer holds us,
we are free to live righteously as He is righteous. And
because His body was beaten and battered, like wounds
and bruises, we are healed from the disease of sin.

Heavenly Father, how can we ever thank you for the
sacrifice of Your Son, Jesus Christ, and for the way

Peace is not a lack of unrest, confusion, or war. Peace

active condition of the heart, mind, and spirit. Peace
conquers unrest, confusion, and even war. If we are

2 Peter 3:13

"But in keeping with his promise we are looking
forward to a new heaven and a new earth, the home
of righteousness." (NIV)

"Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for
new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth
righteousness." (KJV)

We sometimes get caught up in the things that go wrong
here around us. We have been told we will have trouble
in this life and that we are strangers and aliens here on
earth. How can we question what God is doing when we
know these things? If we keep looking ahead to the
promise of a righteous dwelling place, we will find
strength and comfort to get through this world.

Heavenly Father, forgive us when we take our eyes off
of the promise you have set for us from the foundation of
the world. Forgive us when we forget that we are confined
here on this cursed earth for the time you have set for us.
Forgive us for questioning you when things are not going
well for us here. Help us to keep the fire of our faith
burning, we ask in Jesus' name, Amen.
