1 John 1:5 ‘The Lord is light, and in Him there is no darkness at all.’We should never doubt the Lord’s goodness towards us. Even if we are going through difficult times, His goodness remains. There is no darkness in Him at all, so let go of the mistaken tone of distrust.  Reject every unwarranted suspicion regarding His faithfulness and believe that is He is always good and always righteous.
PRAYER: Lord, You are my light and my salvation. I will trust and not be afraid. I will believe that You are good and that there is ‘no darkness’ in You. In Jesus’ Name,  Amen.

Psalm 51:6  “Behold, You desire truth in the…

Psalm 51:6  “Behold, You desire truth in the innermost being.” Although lying is rampant and socially acceptable in our culture, it violates one of God’s most foundational principles for living. God desires for us at all times to speak the truth. God takes lying very seriously. God is a God of truth. Truth has its origin in God. In fact, Jesus states that He is “the truth.” It defines who He is. Lying is opposite to His nature; it is the nature of satan, he is the father of lies, and his mission is to steal, kill, and destroy.  Trust is often broken when we lie. So let’s make it our choice today and every day, to always tell the truth – no matter how much trouble we are in. It’s a choice we need to make.

Verse: 2 Timothy 4:17
‘The Lord stood with me and gave me strength…’
What an awesome picture of the Lord standing with us and giving us strength. HE is standing with you today – you are not alone. HE is closer than you could ever think or imagine. HE is more interested in you than you realise, and He will give you the strength you need.
PRAYER: Lord, may Your abiding presence be a living reality in my life today. May I know, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that You are with me and that You are making all things possible! In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

“It was not with perishable things such as silver or gold that you were redeemed from the empty way of life handed down to you from your forefathers, but with the precious blood of Christ.” 1 Peter 1:18-19
We owed a debt we could not pay and Jesus paid the debt He did not owe. Law demands without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness of sins. (Hebrews 9 22) Jesus redeemed you by His precious blood. His blood cleanses us and the punishment we deserve was laid on Him No matter what sin you’ve committed; “the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin (1 John 1:7).

What the Bible Says About Secrets


By JAMES MARTIN

Scripture offers at least two views of privacy: It’s necessary for a healthy spiritual life, but it also provides a place where sin can be committed.

1 Timothy 1:19 ‘Cling to your faith in Christ, and keep your conscience clear.’
Our faith in Jesus is the one thing that will carry us through the storms of life. We should hold on to our faith and cling to it with every fibre of our being. The Word tells us that without faith it is impossible to please the Lord. So, let’s always do the right thing and believe in Him and put our faith and trust in Him ALONE!
PRAYER: Lord, I desire to pass the tests in life and not to fail or be shipwrecked along the way. I choose to remain confident in You and to cling to You, Jesus. Amen.

Though God at times seems distant, He is invisible, He is sovereign. We can see His sovereignty in each and every event in the book of Esther, until He ultimately proves Himself the Lord of His people. See How He overrules every evil plan of Haman, how He lifts up Mordecai and honours him above all and how He saves the life of His people, the Jews. There is a beautiful message here for anyone who has ever experienced brokenness, who has been crushed by life, for anyone who has felt there is no way in the world God can make reason and meaning out of it.
God raised Esther, an orphaned girl to the position of a queen so that through her He could save His people. God and God alone can do such things.
And He is working quietly behind the scenes of your life too.
God does wonders that cannot be fathomed, miracles that cannot be counted. Job 9:10

Jesus cried, “My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?” Matthew 27:46
Can any of you who are parents imagine abandoning your child to be beaten, mocked, scorned, and killed by your enemies – because their crimes needed to be punished? But that’s what the Father did, for you and me. Sin deserves punishment. Jesus took all of that on Himself.
Jesus paid for your sins so you wouldn’t have to. He took the wrath that you deserve so you could know forgiveness and access into the Kingdom of God. He was forsaken so you could be accepted.
How do you respond to this love, this great sacrifice?
Have you really put your faith in Jesus Christ and what He did for you on the cross?
