Reading God’s Word Daily

Seek The Will Of God With Joy (Psalm 40:16)

Let all those that seek thee rejoice and be glad in thee: let such as love thy salvation say continually, The LORD be magnified.

Psalm 40:16 (KJV)

Seeking the will of God for our life is not a burdensome task, nor is it something that will put us in a place of sorrow. In fact, the greatest joy and and the greatest fulfillment lie in seeking Jesus, delighting in Him, and desiring daily to carry out His plan and purpose for our lives. So let us magnify the Lord with joy in our hearts! He is our sufficiency, and He will always add unto us everything we need to live victoriously.

Look To God For Strength And Peace (Psalm 29:11)

The LORD will give strength to unto his people; the LORD will bless his people with peace.

Psalm 29:11 (KJV)

God gives us strength and He blesses us with peace, yet the key is for us to remember each day to turn to Him in faith and expectancy. And so let us realize that He is our source for absolutely everything, and that it is in our total and complete dependence upon Him that we actually find our strength, our peace, and anything else we may need.

Complete In Christ (Colossians 2:9-10)

For in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily; and you are complete in Him, who is the head of all principality and power.

Colossians 2:9-10 (NKJV)

We are called to live each day out from our completeness in Christ, to meditate on the promises of Scripture that have been made available to us in Him, and to look to Jesus when it comes to meeting any need that may arise. The more that we open ourselves to this heart of faith, the more will we see the fruits of our salvation showing up in our day to day lives.

Taught Of God To Love (1 Thessalonians 4:9)

But as touching brotherly love ye need not that I write unto you: for ye yourselves are taught of God to love one another.

1 Thessalonians 4:9 (KJV)

God indwelling us by His Holy Spirit compels us to want to love one another. As we follow the leading of the Holy Spirit who is at work in us, we will find ourselves being led more fully into living a life of love, kindness and compassion as we receive God’s love for us in Christ.

From Glory To Glory (2 Corinthians 3:18)

But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord.

2 Corinthians 3:18 (NKJV)

The more we behold Jesus through the Word, the more are we transformed into His image and likeness. As we seek His will in all of the areas of our life, we will find ourselves being led from glory to glory through the wisdom and counsel of the Holy Spirit.

Perfect Peace (Isaiah 26:3)

Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.

Isaiah 26:3 (KJV)

Perfect peace is the kind of peace that cannot be shaken by circumstances and conditions. This is the kind of peace that comes from knowing whose we are and whom we have believed. Today, keep your mind stayed on Jesus; trust Him, and let His perfect peace fill every fiber of your being.

Start The Day Right (Psalm 5:3)

My voice shalt thou hear in the morning, O LORD; in the morning will I direct my prayer unto thee, and will look up.

Psalm 5:3 (KJV)

How we start our day will usually determine how it will go. When we make it our practice to turn to God first thing in the morning, when we set aside quiet time for prayer, reading and meditating the Word, we tend to find ourselves living in a greater sense of His presence all throughout the day. And so let us start the day right, seeking God’s will and direction, and reflecting upon what His Word has declared over us.

Fellow Laborers With God (1 Corinthians 3:9)

For we are fellow workmen (joint promoters, laborers together) with and for God; you are God’s garden and vineyard and field under cultivation, [you are] God’s building.

1 Corinthians 3:9 (AMP)

Every born again believer has an assignment from God, we have a role to play when it comes to God fulfilling His plans and purposes in this earth realm. And as we yield to God’s plans and purposes for our life, we ourselves are molded, shaped and developed in the process, the Holy Spirit working in us to make us more fully into all He has called us to be.

Vessels Of God’s Glory (John 11:4)

When Jesus heard that, he said, This sickness is not unto death, but for the glory of God, that the Son of God might be glorified thereby.

John 11:4 (KJV)

It is the will of our heavenly Father that His glory be made manifest in and through His people. And so whether it be sickness, lack, anxiety, or anything else, God wants to use our challenge to manifest His glory in us. This means healing, deliverance, provision, soundness and protection.

Listen To The Holy Spirit (Romans 8:16)

The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God,

Romans 8:16 (NKJV)

The Holy Spirit makes the things of Jesus real to us. One of the things He speaks to us of is our identity in Christ. He is continually whispering into our hearts that we are children of God, that we have His favor and blessing. The more we listen to the Holy Spirit who speaks to us through the Word of God, the less receptive will we be to the voices of fear, doubt, confusion or condemnation. Let us spend some time every day with the Holy Spirit as He guides us into all truth.
