Because of Truth... Today Is Your Best Day

"However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things ot come." John 16:13 NKJV

As God's child there is nothing in the Truth of God to depress you, defeat you, discourage you, or deflate you. The Truth will build you up, lift you up, and keep you up. The Truth has come to deliver you, free you, heal you, restore you, refresh you, revive you, and renew you. Truth brings you the light of God, the wisdom of God, the ways of God, the plan of God, and the heart of God.

Truth is the belt that is tied  around your spiritual armor to keep it in place; it is the revelation of true goodness that draws your heart to the Father's love; it is the burning lamp that guides your feet on your pilgrim's journey; it is the plumb line of righteousness that directs your obedience; it is the foundation of your faith and the road map that leads you through the gates of salvation; it is the light in your spirit that brings you into worship and wonder; it is the mirror that your soul gazes into as you are beautiful in His holiness; it is the protective servant that keeps you and prepares you to be Jesus' bride.

Truth is the light of God that overcomes the darkness of every lie that seeks to rob you of your peace, steal your joy, and quench your faith.
  • When the lie says, "God is not interested in you," the Truth says, "Cast all your cares upon Me, for I care for you."
  • When the lie says, "God is against you," the Truth says, "Because God is for you, no one can be against you."
  • When the lie says, "How could God love someone like you?" the Truth says, "God loves you with an everlasting love."
Today is your best day as you know the Truth, receive the Truth, believe the Truth, obey the Truth, love the Truth, and embrace the Truth. Today, the Truth will set you free.

Because You Serve the Lord... Today Is Your Best Day (Part 2)

Serve the Lord with gladness: come before his presence with singing.  Psalm 100:2 KJV

You have so much to rejoice in today, so much to be glad for, so much to give praise for, and so much for your faith to celebrate. Today you have the awesome opportunity to serve the Lord. Think of it: The God who is majestic, all-powerful, altogether lovely, and altogether worthy wants to use you to reach out and touch others for His glory.

From His high and holy place He works through the lowly place of your heart to touch the hearts of those who are in need of a revelation of His love. Isaiah 57:15 (NLT) declares, "The high and lofty one who inhabits eternity, the Holy One, says this: 'I live in that high and holy place with those whose spirits are contrite and humble. I refresh the humble and give new courage to those with repentant hearts.'"

As God's servant you are in His hands as He conforms and transforms you into His image. In His hands, your life is the voice that speaks His words to those who need to know the truth; the hand that extends His love and mercies to those who are hurting; the example that demonstrates His kingdom to those who need to know the way. Today you have been give the awesome privilege of being used by Him and living for Him as you serve Him in your God-given place.

Today you are the bond servant of the righteous Master, the ambassador of the great King, and the messenger of the eternal Word. As His servant, you live for His approval, look for His smile, and labor for His glory. Your eyes are fixed upon His face, your heart is fixed upon His will, your ears are fixed upon His voice, and your life is fixed upon His pleasure. Your deepest motivation is not duty or obligation, but love. All that you do, you do for love's sake. Your "Yes" to His will is an obedience of love, your work is a labor of love, your praise is an offering of love, your giving is an extension of love, and your worship is an expression of love that comes from the deepest part of who you are.
