Theme: What God Said

Scripture: Genesis 3:1 – “And God said” 

Thought: Anything that God says is important. It is worth our time to listen to God’s words and study them. God says to us: fear not. He says to us: call on my name. He says to use: I am the first and the last. Today listen to what God is saying to you. 

Prayer: Lord help me today to not just hear to your voice but to listen your voice.

Theme: The Spirit of God

Scripture: Genesis 1:2 – “And the Spirit of God moved” 

Thought: There are a lot of forces that come to bear on us during the course of our life. However, the force we need to move on us is the Spirit of God. God’s Spirit is not stationary; it moves. When the Spirit of God moves it brings change. We should desire for God’s Spirit to move on us so that we can be where He wants us to be. 

Prayer: Lord may your Spirit move me today.

Theme: Where to Start

Scripture: Genesis 1:1

Thought: The best place to start is in the beginning. What is at the beginning is important because it contains information we need before we proceed. The Bible tells us that in the beginning there was God. As you start your day begin with God. You will find the information you need before you start. 

Prayer: Lord let me begin today with you. Show me what I need to know before I begin the day.

Theme: Now I Can See

Scripture: Genesis 3:1 – “And God said let there be light and there was light”

Thought: Light helps us to see. It helps us not only to know where we have been but also lets us see what direction we are going. It helps us to see what is dirty, but it also helps us see what is clean. Light was made by God. It is a gift from Him. God does not want us to be in the dark. Darkness brings fear, but Light brings hope. 

Prayer: Lord thank you today for light. Thank you for the light that exposes both my sin and your blessings. 

Theme: Can I Trust God?

Scripture: Genesis 3:1 – “And God said let there be light and there was light”

Thought: When God says something nothing can change it. All of the power of evil and all the power in the universe combined cannot stop God. There are a lot of things that we cannot depend on in life. One thing we can depend on is that God will do whatever He says He will do. 

Prayer: Lord today help me to know that I can trust you because you keep your word. 

Theme: The Focus of the Future

Scripture: Revelation 1:1 – “Behold He cometh with the clouds and every eye shall see Him.

Thought: We often wish we could see the future. We wonder what is going to happen tomorrow. While we may not know when it is going to happen we know it is going to happen. Jesus is coming again. Everyone will know it is Him. The coming of Jesus back to Earth is the focus of the future. May we be ready for Him when He comes. 

Prayer: Lord help me to know you are coming again.

Theme: Where to Draw the Line

Scripture: Genesis 1:4 – “And God divided the light from the darkness.

Thought: Many times as we begin the day we have choices to make. One of those choices concerns what we have time to do and what we will not have time to do. In our scripture we see that God divided. He drew the line between light and dark. In our lives we have to draw the same line. We have to draw a line between the light and the dark. 

Prayer: Lord help me today to draw a line in my life: a line between right and wrong, between Holy and Evil.
