04/05/18 God’s Word for Today: “You brought me safely from my mother’s womb and led me to trust You at my mother’s breast. I was thrust into Your arms at my birth. You have been my God from the moment I was born” (Psalm 22:9-10). Back To The Start. As human beings, we don’t live in the present only. With the help of our memories we can recall the past, and sometimes adapt it to remember the things the way we would have wanted them to be. We can also look at the future and dream about things we hope will happen – or fear what lies ahead. We carry our past along with us and sometimes also our future. We sometimes get a better perspective on the present by going back to the past. This is what David did in this Scripture. He went as far back as his birth. His life had not always been as bad. When he reflected on it, he remembered how God had helped him since his birth. In truth, the very fact that he existed was God’s will. Looking back, he knew that his whole existence was God’s work.There was more to life than his suffering at the time. If you are going through a difficult time, do what David did. Look back to the very beginning, to God who created everything and who brought you into this world in His own good time. He was even with you in your mother’s womb and has journeyed with you through all the years. When you were in the depths of despair, He gave you the strength to carry on. When you fell, He picked you up – and He will do it again and again! Praise the Lord because He is good! – A Pathway to God’s Presence

04/04/18 God’s Word for Today: “O Lord, You have examined me…You are familiar with all my ways” (Psalm 139:1,3). An Expert About You. No one understands you better than God_He knows you even better than you know yourself. He has a perfect complete knowledge about you that is not bound by time or human limitations. He loves you. Whenever you begin to think that no one appreciates the pressures you face, remember that God does. He recognizes how each trial affects you and how each challenge molds your character. God will not allow one area of potential in you to go unexplored. Have faith in your Creator and trust Him to lead you to the abundant life He formed you for. Certainly, He has amazing blessings planned for you. Seek Him first and foremost. – jbr

04/03/18 God’s Word for Today: “I will praise You, because I have been remarkably and wonderfully made. Your works are wonderful” (Psalm 139:14). A Beautiful Work of Art. No matter what you think of yourself or what anyone else has ever said, the fact is that you are a masterpiece of God. Perhaps you reject this truth because of many painful experiences. Or maybe you think that if you had a certain beauty treatment, lost some weight, or had better clothes, you would be okay. God loves you the way you are. When He put you together, He was delighted with the person He created. Are you perfect? No. but you are loved by the One who is. So instead of thinking of the things that make you unique as negatives, look at them for what they really are _ details that make you God’s special work of art. – jrb
“God, sometimes it is difficult to think of myself in a positive way. Thank You for seeing me as beautiful. Please teach me to see myself as You do _ a masterpiece.” Amen. – Via Josue and Ruth Morales
04/02/18 God’s Word for Today: “You have seen my troubles, and you care about the anguish of my soul. You have not handed me over to my enemies but have set me in a safe place” (Psalm 31:7-8). Tough World, Tender God. Trouble comes in many forms and finds everyone eventually. Some people feel like outcasts and never really learn to fit in. Others face financial, physical, or relational problems that keep them in constant chaos. The world offers no solutions or mercy. On the contrary, people must constantly beware of those who would take advantage of their weaknesses. Unfortunately, instead of turning to God, people question why He allows so much suffering. Yet the reason there is such turmoil is that sin is a painful reality in the world. Friend, God longs to show you His loving care, but you must stop clinging to the world and blaming Him for your hardships. Rather, embrace Him. He will reveal the truth and free you from your hurt. – jrb
“God, forgive me for blaming You for my troubles and turning to the world for comfort. Help me to always remember that only You can truly heal my heart.” Amen. – Via Josue and Ruth Morales
04/01/18 God’s Word for Today: “The heavens declare the glory of God, and the sky above proclaim His handiwork” (Psalm 19:1). A Story To Tell. All the wonders of the heavens declare the glory of God and proclaim His exquisite handiwork. And guess what? You do too! When you believe in God, you become a living psalm, a walking demonstration that He exists, He is faithful, and He does all things well. People will experience His presence through the words you speak, your attitude, and even your actions toward them. They will realize that the God of grace loves them and wants to illuminate their life with His joy, mercy, and salvation. Is that what you are saying with your life? Are you shining brightly as a light to those who need God’s hope? You have a story to tell, so do it well. It may make an eternal difference to those who hear you. – jrb
“God, I am so inspired to tell others Your story. Guide my words and my heart so that I can honor You and encourage others to know You as well.” Amen.
