STATE OF MIND
God on this day please continue to bless our youth with your infinite wisdom and Love!
Allow them to ALWAYS see their value in you!
Protect them from all things that are set before them to not believe in you, show them the power of your love, devotion, and guidance! Lord you are all they need and you are all we need!
Lord let this day be their day to fully COMMIT to your plan andpurpose for their lives, without any outside hindrances or influences!
In Jesus Name Amen.
God's Word is the most valuable thing I can ever own. It guidance and direction for my life.
“Keep this Book of the Law always on your lips; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful.”
Joshua 1:8 NIV
The Resource... The Word!
Yesterday, Today, and Forever
Bible Reading: 1 Peter 1:21-25
The grass withers, and the flowers fall away. But the word of the Lord will last forever. 1 Peter 1:24-25
YOU’RE A contestant on TV’s newest game show, Answer These Dumb Questions and Win a Dumb Prize. Answer this question right and you win something really big. Well, not really. But can you number the following items in order of newest to oldest (1 being newest, 9 being oldest)? Ready? Go!
Now look at the list of nine items again and circle the one you think will be here the longest. Sure, Mount Everest should hang tight for a long time. But if you didn’t circle God’s Word, you probably skipped over today’s verse: “The word of the Lord will last forever” (1 Peter 1:25). Like God himself, his Word is eternal. It has no beginning and no end. You might pass your Bible on to your grandchildren someday. That book will eventually fall apart and turn to dust, but the Good News about Christ written in those pages will stick around beyond the end of time.
Bottom line: God’s Word was changing lives and healing hearts for thousands of years before you were born, and it will be here long after you leave planet Earth. It’s the right answer for all the big questions of life.
REFLECT: God loves you so much that he made sure you would have his Word. How should you respond to that?
PRAY: Thank God now that his Word lasts forever.
