Do you want to be blessed today? If so, spend time in God’s word. Spend time in personal communication with Him through prayer. Look for opportunities to serve others and continue to give to support the ministry of our church.
Give Time to Reading Your Bible and Prayer
Regardless of what is happening around us, God never changes and His word never fails. In fact, Hebrew 4:12 speaks about how His
word is living and active
, read this:
“For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow;
it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.”
That is so reassuring to me, especially in this world where change is constant. Don’t you agree? In my lifetime of 66 years, I have seen the introduction of: colored television, the Internet, email, mobile phones, electric cars and a myriad of handheld electronic devices not to mention a worldwide pandemic. All of these were far beyond my imagination. In spite of all of this change, we have the reassurance that God’s word is relevant and that He is always there to commune with us.
Pick up your Bible today and ask God to speak to you through His word. Consider today’s devotional thought. Look up the scripture passage(s) it includes. Wait for God to impress you with the message He has for you today. Then, go to Him in prayer, thanking Him for speaking to you and for being the
you can always depend on.
Give Time to Reach Out to Someone
There is always something you can do for another person. In fact, I think God gives us opportunities to help those around us all the time we just need to be looking for those opportunities. I fall short on this at times, don’t you? It takes a conscious effort on my part to notice someone needing my help and then respond to it.
I recently had one of our members mention that she was having difficulty printing off the Monday Beatitudes study. Apparently, it was printing out so small she could hardly ready it. Without hesitation, I offered to print it out and take the full-size copy to her each week. This has really made a difference to her and blessed me too. It is those little things that make a BIG difference to those we come in contact with. Be watching and listening today for how God may ask you to help someone in need.
