Bloom

TODAY’S SCRIPTURE

“The righteous shall flourish…”  (Psalm 92:12, NKJV)

 

TODAY’S WORD

I remember walking in the woods one time when I came upon a clearing filled with weeds.  As far as I could see, these dead, dried-up weeds had covered up everything.  As I walked a hundred yards further in, I saw a single, beautiful flower that had grown up among all those weeds.  It was so colorful and so different from everything that surrounded it.  I thought, “That’s what God wants us to be: vibrant and blooming wherever He’s planted us.”

Friend, no matter what season you are in today, God wants you to bloom right where you are.  That doesn’t mean you’re going to always be in that situation.  It doesn’t mean you shouldn’t dream big or plan for the future.  It simply means that you are going to choose to be your best on the way to where you’re headed.  It means you go out each day with a smile on your face and a spring in your step.  It means you give God glory in everything you do.  Always remember, bloom where you’re planted and let Him work in and through you all the days of your life!

 

A PRAYER FOR TODAY

Father, thank You for Your hand of mercy upon my life.  Today, I choose to bloom where I’m planted.  I choose to trust You and honor You knowing that You are working behind the scenes for my good.  I love You and bless You in Jesus’ name.  Amen!

Switch Over

TODAY’S SCRIPTURE

“Though the fig tree may not blossom, nor fruit be on the vines…yet I will rejoice in the Lord, I will joy in the God of my salvation.”  (Habakkuk 3:17–18, NKJV)

 

TODAY’S WORD

We all face challenges and obstacles in this life.  We all have dreams in our hearts, and at times, it looks like they’re not going to come to pass.  During these difficult seasons, we have a choice.  We can get negative and discouraged and talk about how things are not going to work out, or we can switch over into praise and thanksgiving which opens the door for God to move on our behalf.

A lot of times people think, “I’ll have a good attitude as soon as I get over this health issue.”  “I’ll give God praise when I get through these tough times.”  But that’s not how faith works.  As long as we’re negative, discouraged and focused on our problems, it limits what God can do.  You’ve got to give God praise first, and then the breakthrough will come.  You’ve got to change your focus first, and then things will change in your favor.  Praise always precedes the victory.

Today, if you’ve been dwelling on the wrong things and focusing in the wrong direction, switch over into praise and thanksgiving.  Begin to declare that God is good.  Declare that He is faithful.  Declare His praises and open the door to victory in every area of your life!

 

A PRAYER FOR TODAY

Father God, today I humbly come before You, lifting You up and magnifying Your holy name.  Thank You for Your goodness and faithfulness in my life.  I bless You and honor You for Your goodness.  In Jesus’ name, I pray.  Amen!

Easy and Light

TODAY’S SCRIPTURE

“For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.”  (Matthew 11:30, NKJV)

 

TODAY’S WORD

God doesn’t want you to go through life constantly struggling, always burdened down, or always fighting against something.  Yes, we know that trials and tribulations will come in this life.  There may be seasons that are more difficult than others; but, we can’t just settle where we are and accept that it’s always going to be this way.  Just like God led the Israelites into the Promised Land, He wants to lead you to a good land with no shortage and no lack.  He wants to cause you to remain in His provision and blessing.

The key is that when difficulty comes, instead of focusing on where you are, instead of dwelling on how things won’t work, turn your focus toward Him.  Lift up your eyes to heaven.  Cast your cares on the Lord.  Don’t let the heaviness of the world drag you down.  Put your faith and hope in Him knowing that He has good things in store for your future.  Keep praying, keep believing, and keep trusting because His yoke is easy, His burden is light, and He’s leading you into your promised land!

 

A PRAYER FOR TODAY

Father God, thank You for Your goodness and faithfulness in my life.  Today, I choose to cast my cares on You, I choose to release the weight of my burdens to You.  Thank You for setting me free and aligning me to walk in victory in every area of my life.  In Jesus’ name, I pray.  Amen!
