TODAY'S VERSE "Listen to my cry for help, my King and my God, for I pray to no one but you. Listen to my voice in the morning, LORD. Each morning I bring my requests to you and wait expectantly." Psalms 5:2-3 (NLT)

TODAY'S THOUGHT It's not God plus something else. That is what happened to the children of Israel. They turned from God toward idols. Oh, they kept their form of worship but added the superstition of other religions. They needed God but to feel safe they added other idols. How about you? What are you trusting in? Is it your job? Your education? Your reputation? Do you trust in positive thinking or some other worldly philosophy? Have you crowded out God for some other form of comfort? David came to God each morning. When he was troubled, he cried out to God; no one else, just God. And God heard his prayers. David trusted God only and waited patiently for Him. Today, you can do the same. He is trustworthy. His love for you is boundless, His mercy is endless and His grace is sufficient for all your needs. Might you say with David, "I pray to no one but you. Listen to my voice in the morning, LORD. Each morning I bring my requests to you and wait expectantly."

TODAY'S PRAYER Father, I come to You and You alone for all I need. Forgive me when I have turned to other things. I know better. You are sufficient. I know Your love for me is boundless. So today, I come and I bring all my requests, hopes and dreams to You. Thank You, Father. AMEN

TODAY'S VERSE '"If only we had died in Egypt, or even here in the wilderness!' they complained. 'Why is the LORD taking us to this country only to have us die in battle? Our wives and our little ones will be carried off as plunder! Wouldn't it be better for us to return to Egypt?"' Numbers 14:2-3 (NLT)

TODAY'S THOUGHT Faith is not easy. Here is a classic struggle where the children of God expected one thing and ended up with something else. They left Egypt where they were slaves, hoping for a land of their own. And now, because of the report of "giants in the land", they were afraid for their lives. All they could think of was returning to slavery! Isn't that just like fear? All we can see is negativity. But not faith. Faith sees God, fear sees giants. Faith sees the freedom, fear sees slavery. Faith sees the promised land, fear sees a wilderness. While the other spies saw giants in the land, Joshua and Caleb said, "The land we traveled through and explored is a wonderful land! And if the LORD is pleased with us, he will bring us safely into that land and give it to us. It is a rich land flowing with milk and honey." The people reacted in fear; Joshua and Caleb reacted in faith. Today, no matter what your circumstances, choose faith.

TODAY'S PRAYER Father, help me to see through the eyes of faith. Help me to trust You and not fear. Give me courage and strength, I pray. AMEN

TODAY'S VERSE "The LORD God formed the man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being." Genesis 2:7 (NIV)

TODAY'S THOUGHT When asked, a group of people who suffered with addictions, gave the answer to what they "felt" just before they gave into the craving of their addiction. What was the trigger, what was the deep painful impulse that was driving them? Some of the answers were, "worthlessness, lost, disconnection, lack of existence, invisible, bad, evil, void, abandoned, alone, powerless, wrong, not breathing, non being, humiliated, ashamed and unloved." Then the same group was asked to visualize taking the drug and verbalize what the drug did for them. What was the promise, what was the relief? They wrote: "self discovery, focus for my life, meaning, surrender, will, acceptance by group, feeling of being alive, freedom, acceptance of desire, living in the moment." Now here is the catch. Although the desire for positive meaning is real, the lie is that drugs are the solution. It is like the song, "Looking for love in all the wrong places." It is God that gives the "breath of life." Jesus provides real meaning. The healing power of God and Christian fellowship is the answer to our deepest pain! God has created us for life. We are not supposed to go around feeling like a non-being. Instead Paul prays that we would have the power to understand how wide, how long, how high, and how deep Christ's love for us is. It is in experiencing God's love for us that we are made complete with all the "fullness of life and power that comes from God." Today, let the love of Christ breathe life deep into your soul and make you alive.

TODAY'S PRAYER Father, I want to live, really live. Help me find true meaning and purpose in Your love for me. Fill me with Your life-giving breath. Fill me with Your Spirit and make me more alive today than I have ever been. AMEN

TODAY'S VERSE "The shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things they had heard and seen, which were just as they had been told." Luke 2:20 (NIV)

TODAY'S THOUGHT Does our worship produce more worship? The shepherds came to the manger and worshiped Jesus born as a baby. And then they returned home filled with even more worship and praise. Jesus was the Messiah, the hope of the world, and they were deeply moved by their time with Him. Today, we come week after week worshipping the same Jesus. They knew Him as a baby but we know Him as the Savior. We know the joy of sins forgiven. We know the power of a personal relationship with Jesus. Yet how do we return home week after week after spending time in corporate worship? How does our experience on Sunday extend into how we live and worship on Monday? What kind of Christian experience do we really have, or is our faith just a ritual, a religious practice? The shepherds experienced Jesus, and even as a baby, it changed their lives. They were never the same. Let Jesus do the same for you. Might your whole life be filled with the joy and wonder of His love for you. Today, glorify and praise God for all He has done.

TODAY'S PRAYER Dear Jesus, thank You for all You have done for me. Thank You for Your birth, death and resurrection. Today, fill my heart with praise. Give me a joy deep in my heart. Help me to know You in a profoundly personal way so I, too, return home glorifying and praising You for all the things I have seen and heard. AMEN

TODAY'S VERSE "Dear brothers and sisters, if another believer is overcome by some sin, you who are godly should gently and humbly help that person back onto the right path. And be careful not to fall into the same temptation yourself. Share each other's burdens, and in this way obey the law of Christ." Galatians 6:1-2 (NLT)

TODAY'S THOUGHT So much of the sin in our life is due to our emotions. We get upset, worried, stressed and the emotional pain starts to build up. This leads us to sin. The solution is found in relationships. Relationships with God and other close friends gives us the love, support and comfort that is able to tame our sinful behavior. It is in these deep relationships that Paul encourages you to gently and humbly help a person return to sanity and stop their negative behavior. How? By sharing their burdens and pain. In using a kind word, a listening ear and a prayerful heart, your sincere help will keep a person from acting out on their negative emotions. Your empathy and love will help keep them from committing deep relational sins. Today ask God to help you share in someone else's burden and restore them to a place of peace and joy.

TODAY'S PRAYER Father, help me be there for other people. Help me share their burdens and gently bring them back to You. Thank You for Your grace and mercy extended to me. Help me do the same to others. In Jesus' name. AMEN
