Monday Meditations – Romans 8:24-25

January 02, 2012

Today’s Meditation Verse:

Romans 8:24-25

24) For in hope we have been saved, but hope that is seen is not hope; for who hopes for what he already sees? 25) But if we hope for what we do not see, with perseverance we wait eagerly for it.

 

Each year when a new year starts there is always an air of expectation that goods things will come and that this fresh start is a milestone that the old and the bad is past and now new good things will come.

Monday Meditations – Luke 2:13-14

December 19, 2011

Today’s Meditation Verse:

 

Luke 2:13-14
13 And suddenly there appeared with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying,

14 “Glory to God in the highest,
And on earth peace among men with whom He is pleased.”

 

Well it is less than a week before we celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ our savior.  Today I want you to meditate on verse 14 keeping this thought in mind.  ‘with whom He is pleased’.

 

On that day the angles proclaimed verse 14 and declared for those whom with God is pleased, that they should experience peace.

 

Now we can look around our world today and see very little peace.  In fact we are in that time when Jesus himself said there would be wars and rumor of wars.

 

So where is this peace?

 

It resides within our hearts.  The peace that passes all understanding is not understood because of the fact that no matter what wars and turmoil is raging on the outside, the peace still resides on the inside, untouchable.

 

God himself has placed it there in those whith whom He is pleased.

 

If you don’t feel that peace within your heart today, just ask Him.  Humble yourself to Him, submit your life to him and receive all that He has for you.

 

This week, this very day, take the time to ask for and receive His peace.  There is no better time.

Today’s Meditation Verse:

 

Luke 6:27-28

27 “But I say to you who hear, love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, 28 bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you.

 

The past month has had some challenges for me and they all involved people.  In two instances someone I loved was being horribly mistreated and it infuriated me.  In two other instances I was done horribly wrong.

John 3:17

For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.

Monday Meditations – James 1:5-8

November 7, 2011

Today’s Meditation Verse:

 

James 1:5-8

5 If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him. 6 But when he asks, he must believe and not doubt, because he who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind. 7 That man should not think he will receive anything from the Lord; 8 he is a double-minded man, unstable in all he does.

Monday Meditations – Hebrews 8:10

October 31, 2011

Today’s Meditation Verse:

 

Hebrews 8:10

10) FOR THIS IS THE COVENANT THAT I WILL MAKE WITH THE HOUSE OF ISRAEL

AFTER THOSE DAYS, SAYS THE LORD:

I WILL PUT MY LAWS INTO THEIR MINDS,

AND I WILL WRITE THEM ON THEIR HEARTS.

AND I WILL BE THEIR GOD,

AND THEY SHALL BE MY PEOPLE.

 

I love this verse.  Here the author is talking to the Hebrews.  He is talking to the people who have made a life of living by the law.  Thousands and thousands of laws.  Their entire life from the time they were tiny children to old age was continual law indoctrination.  Because that was what God had told them to do.

Monday Meditations – Matthew 7:14

October 24, 2011

Today’s Meditation Verse:

 

Matthew 7:14

But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.

 

I’ve been a Christian for almost my entire life.  Most of the people that I’ve been around in my life have professed to be Christians.  So when I would read this scripture above it would make me wonder.  Who are the few?

Monday Meditations – Matthew 13:30

October 17, 2011

Today’s Meditation Verse

 

Matthew 13:30

Allow both to grow together until the harvest; and in the time of the harvest I will say to the reapers, “First gather up the tares and bind them in bundles to burn them up; but gather the wheat into my barn.

 

Justice is something we all want and seek.  But many times we are left wondering why doesn’t God do something sooner?  Why does He wait to deal with those who are in the enemy’s camp?  Why does He allow them to kill, steal and destroy?  Because there is a divine appointed time to administer justice.
