This week: Heaven

November 27
2 Peter 3:13-14, "But in keeping with his promise we are looking forward to a new heaven and a new earth, the home of righteousness. So then, dear friends, since you are looking forward to this, make every effort to be found spotless, blameless and at peace with him."

Prayer: Father God, I cannot wait for heaven! While my soul longs for this future reality, my life in the here and now is so easily distracted. Father, forgive me for living for myself and the temporary satisfaction of this world. I long to bring You honor and glory right now so Father, shape my heart and transform my desires. Help me to be faithful to You and obedient to Your Word.

November 28
2 Corinthians 4:17-18, "For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal."

Prayer: Father, I admit that I so easily become consumed with the frustrations and stresses of life. It consumes my joy, my peace, and my hope, and it leads me to some dark places. But not today. Thank You for this truth that all of this is just temporary, and what You have for me is perfect, holy, and eternal. Today, I will not be consumed by the worries of this life, but I will lift my eyes to You.

So, give me strength today to avoid the temptation of the Evil One and follow You instead.

September 22
John 14:1-3, "Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God; trust also in me. In my Father's house are many rooms; if it were not so, I would have told you.

Prayer: Jesus, Thank You for loving and saving me from my sin so that I could be a child of God. Though living in troubling times, I find peace knowing that You will never leave me or forsake me.

Help me live on mission today in light of that opportunity You have given to me and the people I will come across.

Today, I will trust this promise even when I may not feel it.

1 John 1:5, "This is the message we have heard from him and declare to you: God is light; in him there is no darkness at all."

Prayer: God, the world is dark all around me. With so many questions left unanswered, I do know one thing, that You are the light that sustains me. In You, I can light up the world that I walk in. In You, others can see my testimony and see hope. I will live in the glow of Your grace and goodness today. I love You! Amen.

Pleasing God

September 27

Prayer: God, I confess that when my circumstances are difficult or out of my control, I tend to focus on what is happening rather than who You are. In those moments, I’m distracted and lose sight of what is important and has eternal value. I want to let go of the things of this world that occupy my thoughts and emotions and cause me to stumble. God, help me to keep my gaze fixed on You, Your promises, and Your goodness so that others may see You in my life.


September 28
Revelation 2:2-3, “I know your deeds, your hard work and your perseverance.

Prayer: Heavenly Father, Thank You for this day! Thank You for Your Word, and I pray that You would help me live out these characteristics of Your church. Give me the strength to work hard and persevere, help me not tolerate wickedness, and even when I come up against hardships for Your name, please help me endure and push on! I want to bring You glory with the way I live my life so that all who see me will see You and be encouraged to come to know You as their Lord and Savior! In Jesus’ Name, I pray Amen.

Hebrews 10:25, “(Let us) not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.”

Prayer: Father God, Thank You for another day of life. Today I’m reminded in your Word just how important it is to remember that I was never created to walk this journey alone. I need other believers that I’m doing life with. It’s Your will that I seek other believers to walk with and encourage as we journey together through this life. Help me strive for ways to engage in Christian community today and each day.


September 30
Psalm 73:26, “My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.”

I place them all into Your loving hands.


October 1
2 Corinthians 12:9, “But he said to me, ‘My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.’ Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.”

Prayer: God, I thank You that I do not have to be sufficient! Even though my pride and the talent You have gifted me with sometimes cause me to think otherwise, I’m thankful for the reminder that You are more than enough. I pray today that I will boast about Your power and not my own. That I will admit my mistakes, poor decisions, and weaknesses boldly so that You can receive all glory for how You work and move in and through my life! Amen.


October 2

In this moment, I am committing today to please You. I am committing to expressing my love for You through obedience. By Your grace and strength, I shall do the same tomorrow and every day after. Father, help me to continue to grow in faithfulness to You.


October 3
John 14:15, “If you love me, keep my commands.”

Prayer: Father, I want to show You, my love. But instead, I overcomplicate something that You’ve made so simple. You ask for my obedience, not a perfect life. You want me to pursue You, not rules or traditions. Today I choose to give You what You desire: a surrendered and obedient heart. Use me for whatever You have planned. I love You! Amen.

God's Blessings Missed

October 4
Revelation 2:4, "Yet I hold this against you: You have forsaken your first love."

Prayer: God, I know my life is too busy. I fill up every waking moment with noise that comes from the news, social media, and the relationships around me, and yet the one voice I don't prioritize is Yours. I have forsaken the one voice that can bring me hope, truth, and direction. God help today be the start of minimizing the noise around me and getting back to the still and quiet place so I can hear Your voice.


October 5
Galatians 5:13, "You, my brothers, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the sinful nature; rather, serve one another in love."

Prayer: God, my senses are bombarded daily with messages accepted by our culture that has slowly crept into my thoughts and behavior. Forgive me for getting off course, for listening more to this world than You. I've drifted from what You want for me and from me. Strengthen me in my weakness, and let me bring honor to You for the sacrifice Jesus made to free me from sin. Use me to love and serve others.


October 6
2 Peter 2:1, "But there were also false prophets among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you. They will secretly introduce destructive heresies, even denying the sovereign Lord who bought them—bringing swift destruction on themselves."

Prayer: Heavenly Father, Thank You for Your Word! Today help me distinguish Your truth from the lies that surround me. Help me to hide Your Word in my heart so that I'll be able to see through falsehoods meant to lead me astray. Thank You for Your guidance and protection. In Jesus' Name, Amen.


October 7
Matthew 23:27, "Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You are like whitewashed tombs, which look beautiful on the outside but on the inside are full of dead men's bones and everything unclean."

Prayer: Heavenly Father, Today I'm reminded that what matters most to You is not the external but the internal. Forgive me for the times that I get so focused on crossing off the religious to-do boxes that I forget about the condition of my heart. Give me clarity today on the internal issues of the heart that I need to focus on.


October 8
1 John 2:4, "Whoever says, 'I know him,' but does not do what he commands is a liar, and the truth is not in that person.

What an amazing promise that I will receive the crown of life from You!


October 10
Revelation 3:19, "Those whom I love I rebuke and discipline. So be earnest and repent."

Prayer: Father God, I praise You for Your love. I admit I hate rebuke, correction, and discipline, but I know that because You love me, it is right, and it is good. So often, I am so deceived by the world's allure of pleasure, control, and happiness that I become ineffective and useless in my faith. Father, forgive me for the times this is true of me. Forgive me when I am neither hot nor cold but lukewarm. I praise You for Your kindness towards me. Help me to live honorably for You today.

Worship

October 11
Colossians 3:1-2, "Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things."

Prayer: Oh, how I long to live every moment today experiencing the glories of my relationship with You, God! I tend to give my worship away to other things and people, leaving me exhausted and burned out, aching for more out of this life. Today I choose to focus my attention on You, Your faithfulness, and Your closeness. I choose to give You all of my worship. Use me today, and may my focus bring You glory. Amen.


October 12

October 13
Isaiah 6:3, "And they were calling to one another: 'Holy, holy, holy is the Lord Almighty; the whole earth is full of his glory.'"

Prayer: God, I confess that far too often, my relationship with You is transactional and casual. Please forgive me for losing sight of who You are and Your greatness. You are my Savior and King. You are the only one worthy of my devotion and worship, for You alone are Holy. May I never take Your grace, mercy, and love for granted.

No matter what I may be facing, You offer me a peace beyond my understanding and circumstances.


October 15

Your never-ending love, forgiveness, and pursuit of a relationship with me have given me hope, purpose, and a new identity in You even though I was not worthy of it. I worship You with my surrendered life. My will and my way, I humbly submit to Yours. I want what You want for me, so I give all of me to You! Thank You for this new life in Jesus' Name, Amen.

It Is Worth It

October 18
John 16:33, "I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world."

Prayer: Father God, I praise You for the peace You give. I praise You that You have overcome the brokenness of the world. You are worth my everything! But Father, I confess that the lies and the trouble of the world consume me too often, and I fail to honor You. Lord, encourage my heart and fill me with Your peace to do what is right, good, and honoring. You are worthy of my all!


October 19
Philippians 2:9-11, "Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father."

October 20

October 21

Prayer: God, these verses challenge me. Do I suffer from being a Christian; for proclaiming the name of Jesus boldly? I think I suffer more from the wrong choices I've made that have natural consequences. Help me, Father, walk in a closer relationship with You, seek You in all things, praise You, and proclaim the name of Jesus through my words and my actions... because You alone are worthy!


October 22

Prayer: God, I thank You for the living hope I have through the resurrection of Your son Jesus Christ. I'm reminded today through Your Word that everything this world has to offer will one day perish, spoil, or decay. It's all temporary. All of it... except for the hope I have in Jesus. I walk into this day grateful and overwhelmed by Your mercy.


October 24
Galatians 2:20, "I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me."

The Harvest is Coming

Amen.

Give me the eyes to see You and the heart to sense where You are working. Use me, Lord!


October 27

Prayer: God, I've been trying to fit all the pieces together in my own life. The result has been stress, worry, and overwhelm. Your Word tells me that I have a Helper, the Holy Spirit, who goes with me and shows me the way. So today, I choose to surrender my plans and all of the details to You. I don't create the harvest; that's Your job. And today, I'll trust You for it. Amen.

October 29
Matthew 5:15-16, "Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven."

Prayer: Good morning God! I'm here this morning astonished once again that with all my flaws, in all my brokenness, you still welcome me as Your child. Father, search my heart and my thoughts. Direct my thoughts to Your Word and the tasks You have for me today. Guard my mouth, and give me words to speak hope and love to those in need of You. Grant me boldness to proclaim You with those I encounter today. In Jesus' Name.


October 30
Romans 1:16, "For I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God that brings salvation to everyone who believes…"

Prayer: Heavenly Father, I am so grateful for the Gospel, the Good News of Jesus, that has changed my life. Thank You for loving me and showing me Your grace and mercy.

Help me not to be ashamed and bring me opportunities today to share your message of salvation, and may someone come to know You as their Lord and Savior as a result. In Jesus' name. Amen.


October 31
John 9:4-5, "As long as it is day, we must do the work of him who sent me. Night is coming, when no one can work. While I am in the world, I am the light of the world."

Prayer: Father God, I'm beyond humbled that You have and will continue to use my life for Your glory. Fill my mind and heart today with the realization that my days on this earth are numbered.

The Great Counterfeit

November 1
2 Corinthians 11:14, "And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light."

Prayer: Father, it’s so easy for me to fall for Satan’s lies; that evil is good and good is evil. My only weapon is Your Word. Help me to make it a priority; read it daily, meditate and memorize it so that I have Your authority and Your power to say no to every temptation Satan throws at me. Thank You, Jesus, for the victory I already have in You! Greater are You who lives in me than Satan who lives in this world.


November 2
2 Timothy 3:12, "In fact, everyone who wants to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted."

Prayer: This is not a fun truth today, God. So often, if I face any persecution, it feels like a punishment - help me remember that it is an opportunity to suffer with Christ, the greatest honor of our lives. Keep me grateful that the persecution I face is nothing compared to what many brothers and sisters face around the world. I pray for Your grace and peace with them, especially today. Keep me aware that any persecution I face is an opportunity to reflect You to those around me for Your glory!

November 4

The darkness feels like it is closing in and that the battle has taken too many prisoners. But, that which is counterfeit also has counterfeit power. May we choose to walk in Your strength and power today, knowing that the battle-winning power is inside of us because of You. Thank You for being Faithful forever.


November 5
Psalm 119:11, "I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you."

As I know and understand your truth, I know I can stand again the temptation and sin of this world.


November 6
Daniel 1:8, "But Daniel resolved not to defile himself with the royal food and wine, and he asked the chief official for permission not to defile himself this way."

Prayer: Father, may I be as steadfast in my dedication to You today as Daniel. It's so easy to stumble when tempted with what seems reasonable or harmless from the world's perspective. I want to grow in the knowledge of Your Word so that I know what You desire for me and from me. Father, strengthen me through Your Spirit so that I won't compromise Your truth.


November 7
Romans 8:1, "Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus."

Thank You for coming to live in me, not condemning me, and for changing me! I am eternally grateful. May my life be an example to others who desperately need You. In Jesus' name, Amen.

Love Not The World

November 8
Proverbs 14:12, "There is a way that seems right to a man, but in the end it leads to death."

Prayer: Father God, I'm reminded today through Your Word not to rely on my own understanding or my own wisdom or even my own thoughts. For each of us has the capacity of self-deception. As I journey through this life, may I rely on Your Word to guide my steps and Your Spirit to guide my heart. I want to go Your way and not my way.


November 9
1 Peter 5:9, "Resist him (the devil), standing firm in the faith, because you know that your brothers throughout the world are undergoing the same kind of sufferings."

Prayer: Heavenly Father, help me resist Satan's temptations through the power and promises of Your Word. Forgive me when I worry, thinking You can't handle my trials.

Deliver us all from evil and enable us to stand firm in our faith. In Jesus' name, I pray, AMEN.


November 10
1 John 2:15, "Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him."

Help me see the people around me today as the eternal beings they are, and help me love them more as You do. Thank You for loving me and allowing me to experience it!


November 11
Romans 12:2, "Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will."

Prayer: Heavenly Father, forgive me for buying into the lies of our culture and for the habits they have created in my life. Father, rid my life of those lies and flood my heart and mind with Your truth so that I may know what honors You. Help create within me habits and patterns that bring You glory and honor. Change me, Father, for I am Yours.


November 12
