Consistent Assistance

This day with God will be amazing as we put consistent assistance into practice just as explained in the post Discourse on the Divine Resource about the Holy Spirit; the divine resource of instruction and empowerment to assist in living a reinvigorated life of firm witness of Christ.

God will bless those who seek His advice and follow through on His guidance. They will be prepared, take action, and are assured of a bright future because the Holy Spirit will be there to assist at work, at home, and wherever they are.

Enjoy today’s inspiring video: As it is in Heaven – Matt Maher.

In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit intercedes for us through wordless groans. And he who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for God's people in accordance with the will of God. - Romans 8:26-27

His Word is Golden

And the words of the Lord are flawless,
   Like silver purified in a crucible,
   Like gold refined seven times.  – Psalm 12:6

As explained in the post Rely on God’s Word, the instructions we get from the world many times no longer work or maybe never did work. On the other hand, the instructions we find in God’s Word are golden; always perfect with instructions on how to live.

God’s words are golden and the words we use are also very valuable and powerful. Today’s video is about how important words are as they can build up or tear down or lead others to God: Words – Hawk Nelson.

Your words have supported those who stumbled; you have strengthened faltering knees. - Job 4:4

Each Day Can Be Amazing Because of Our Savior

Our days can look bleak just like they did in the post Refuge in the Deluge but each day can be amazing because of our Savior and our growing faith can never be taken away or depleted. The gospel message has a beautiful and refreshing simplicity about it that sets us free and never let us down

It’s much easier living in God’s light, trusting in His promises, and using His resources. With God, it’s like running with the wind at your back. He knows our needs and gives us that extra push to the finish line.

Enjoy today’s inspiring video: He Knows – Jeremy Camp.

Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to Him, and He will make your paths straight. - Proverbs 3:5-6

The Most Important Activity

Life is not easy and can hit right in the face. Sometimes we want to correct the problems our own way but it just will not work. David had issues in life as written about in the post “Eyes on Him as we Arise and Shine”. Then, he prayed for God to help and immediately felt confident that God would arise.

We all have a desire to get it right but sometimes we are hard headed and try to work it out all by ourselves. The most important activity is to pray like David did. Let us get help through prayer as we plan out our daily activities

Today’s inspiring video is about how we all need the Lord. Remember, the most important activity is to begin this day with prayer and feel confident that whatever we ask will be answered in God’s timing: Lord, I Need You – Matt Maher.

For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened. - Matthew 7:8

Much More to Give

Written about in the post Victory Over Enemies, David experienced God’s greatness and when he did, he gave God praise. Let us also recall the blessings we have received and give Him praise.

If going through difficulty, receive the hope only God can give, and believe He is big enough to provide victory today. He has much more to give.

At the end of the day, be assured by this clear picture of joy. Look up at the sky on a clear night. Realize that He is the one who made all those stars; more stars than we can count and He can bless us with joys more numerous than the stars.

Here is today’s inspirational video to help spur us on to victory: Today is the Day – Lincoln Brewster.

In everything give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you. – 1 Thessalonians 5:18

Nothing is Impossible with God

Many say that David wrote Psalm 8 soon after he killed Goliath. The post How Majestic is Your Name points this out.  I also wrote in this post about my trip to Austin a while back to a concert; about how I could keep up on reading blog posts with the technology of today.

Nothing is impossible with God and as ruler over the work of His hands; we can participate in innovation and create solutions to problems that we once thought impossible.

With new technology of today, we all have the ability to be innovative and creative. This day with God, let us stretch our thinking, dream big, and break old barriers. Here is today’s inspirational video. Enjoy! J : Me and God – Josh Turner.

For nothing is impossible with God. – Luke 1:37

The Application of Our Faith

But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves. - James 1:22

The post Prepare the Heart was about David going to God in order for justice to be carried out against his accusers. Studying about David and others in the Bible along with learning the principles found in God’s word prepares our heart and initiates the application of our faith to handle the challenges we face in this world. 

Let us seek to do something today that brings glory to God and start by praying with a vision of what that looks like. With Jesus by our side, we can make it happen. Let us take inspiration from today’s video: Do Something – Matthew West.

Faith is the Weapon Needed to Fight Our Spiritual Enemies

If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. - 1 John 1:9

David faced many enemies and was in distress as written in the post “He is Faithful and Just” but prays with assurance because he knows that God would hear his prayer. David speaks with such assurance that his life would turn around because of his confession and his faith in God’s mercy.

David’s faith gives him an optimistic outlook for the future and the weapon needed to fight his spiritual enemies. This day with God, we too can look forward to a brighter future where every doubt or fear can be replaced with a deep abiding trust in God.

The Desire and the Power

For God is working in you, giving you the desire and the power to do what pleases Him. - Philippians 2:13

In the post Go to Him in Prayer Early in the Morning, David was under distress and made this prayer written out in Psalm 5. David could go to God in confidence because of his close relationship to the ONE who is most powerful and has all the answers.

There are many challenges we face in life and it is best to go to God for instructions because He can make the instructions clear so we can follow with precision. He can give the exact thought or idea to try and also the desire to carry it out.

So if you are searching for a solution to some issue, start with God. Here is today’s inspirational video: Need You Now - Plumb.
