Verse of the day: Day 1 His love never fails, it never gives up

I'm gonna try this new thing were i ask god for one verse to meditate on for one day! Asking him that in this verse he shows me each day a new revelation of his love! and I'm gonna share my revelation with you!

Psalms 34: 15,17
15 The eyes of the LORD are on the righteous,and his ears are attentive to their cry; 17 The righteous cry out, and the LORD hears them; he delivers them from all their troubles.

When I call out to God he hears me. He pays attention and listens to my crys for help. When i call to him in my times of trouble, he brings me threw them victoriously. When i trust in him even through my hard times it makes me stronger in my faith, though losing trust will only cause me to feel drifted apart in my faith. God is always here waiting for me to listen, waiting for me to trust in him. waiting for me to let him be my savior and believe the truth hes said of me. Gods love never fails and never gives up on me!

The way The Truth and The life

John 14:1-16 1 “Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. 2 In My Father’s house are many mansions;[a] if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.[b] 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also. 4 And where I go you know, and the way you know.”
5 Thomas said to Him, “Lord, we do not know where You are going, and how can we know the way?” 6 Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.
7 “If you had known Me, you would have known My Father also; and from now on you know Him and have seen Him.”
8 Philip said to Him, “Lord, show us the Father, and it is sufficient for us.”
9 Jesus said to him, “Have I been with you so long, and yet you have not known Me, Philip? He who has seen Me has seen the Father; so how can you say, ‘Show us the Father’? 10 Do you not believe that I am in the Father, and the Father in Me? The words that I speak to you I do not speak on My ownauthority; but the Father who dwells in Me does the works. 11Believe Me that I am in the Father and the Father in Me, or else believe Me for the sake of the works themselves.
12 “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father. 13 And whatever you ask in My name, that I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. 14 If you ask[c] anything in My name, I will do it.15 “If you love Me, keep[d] My commandments. 16 And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever— 17 the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you. 18I will not leave you orphans; I will come to you.
John 14:25-28 25 “These things I have spoken to you while being present with you. 26 But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you. 27 Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.

What God showed me today: Jesus is the way the truth and the life!! How powerful is god? Jesus says in Mathew 19:26 “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.” but when we ask Jesus into our hearts he is one with us and if Jesus is one with God and God is one with Jesus, Then arent we one with our God too because of Jesus?; yes!! And once we believe fully in Jesus the things he has done we will do also and even more! When Jesus left this earth he didn't leave us alone but God also sent us the holy spirit. The world around us can not see or feel the holy spirit, but because of our faith we can; for he dwells in us, and guides us threw our travels on this earth. God says to us that never will he leave us nor forsake us. so never should our hearts be feared or troubled, because nothing can harm us! Our God is so Good!

Rest in his love.

Philippians 4: 4-7 4 Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! 5 Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. 6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

What God showed me today: No longer do we need to worry about anything, but just call out to god; pray to him! Tell him your problems and thank him for the answers! When we do this God's peace will overcome our lives. It will keep us quiet and at rest as we trust in god to do his work in our lives! No longer do we have to live by law, no longer do we have to try to do good or to try to make god pleased in us! He is already pleased with you, he already thinks were perfect, and we are good because we trust in him. In trusting him we do good! When we know and understand his perfect love for us, and rest in it, we want to do good!

No confidence in the flesh

Philippians 3:1-3 1 Further, my brothers and sisters, rejoice in the Lord! It is no trouble for me to write the same things to you again, and it is a safeguard for you. 2 Watch out for those dogs, those evildoers, those mutilators of the flesh. 3 For it is we who are the circumcision, we who serve God by his Spirit, who boast in Christ Jesus, and who put no confidence in the flesh

3:7-14 7 But whatever were gains to me I now consider loss for the sake of Christ. 8 What is more, I consider everything a loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whose sake I have lost all things. I consider them garbage, that I may gain Christ 9 and be found in him, not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but that which is through faith in[a] Christ—the righteousness that comes from God on the basis of faith. 10 I want to know Christ—yes, to know the power of his resurrection and participation in his sufferings, becoming like him in his death,11 and so, somehow, attaining to the resurrection from the dead.12 Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already arrived at my goal, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me. 13 Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, 14 I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.

What God showed me today: What do the ways of the world have for us other than to tear us down? Have no confidence in the in the flesh because it brings evil and unhappiness, but instead we look to Christ Jesus because of him you have lost all sin and consider them garbage. We our found in Christ and no longer need to look for righteousness in ourselves, but our freely righteous because of our faith in Jesus Christ. When knowing this your desire will be to be like Christ. Its not that we are not already like Christ because god made us in Christ's image. But it is that we will be thriving to seek god truth. God does not see our past, he simply sees the future he holds for you know that you are walking and living in him. So forget your past mistakes and continue on for the plan God has for your life!
May God bless your life, and show you his truth today. There is nothing greater than walking down the path of life with Jesus right by your side holding your hand, and encouraging you the whole way!
