Daily word for 17 July 2017 – Romans 5:3-4

Dear brothers and sisters,

Today I want to encourage you with Romans 5:3-4 (NIV):

3 Not only so, but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; 4 perseverance, character; and character, hope.

Although we might not like and love the moments of suffering in our life, God allows it for a reason. To built us. Because out of suffering will come perseverance. Perseverance will built our character and from our character our hope will grow. And this will built us, but also our relationship with God.

Daily word for 11 July 2017 – 1 John 5:14-15

Dear brothers and sisters,

Today I want to encourage you with 1 John 5:14-15 (NIV):

14 This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. 15 And if we know that he hears us—whatever we ask—we know that we have what we asked of him.

These verses are sometimes misused especially within the prosperity teachings from the likes of Creflo Dollar and Joel Osteen. However, they keep out a very important part. Yes, if we pray to God for things we desire God will give it to you, but it says very clearly it has to be according to His will. Therefore we need to grow in faith and let us guide us by the Holy Spirit and you will more and more notice that the things you desire will start to change and be in line with Gods way.

Daily word for 10 July 2017 – Proverbs 9:10

Dear brothers and sisters,

Today I want to encourage you with Proverbs 9:10 (NIV):

10 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.

Not until you really fear God you will begin to gain wisdom. Not earthly wisdom, because you never know how correct it is. Also knowledge will come if you start to learn and understand God.

Daily word for 9 July 2017 – 1 Peter 1:3-5

Dear brothers and sisters,

Today I want to encourage you with the words from 1 Peter 1:3-5 (NIV)

Praise to God for a Living Hope

3 Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, 4 and into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade. This inheritance is kept in heaven for you, 5 who through faith are shielded by God’s power until the coming of the salvation that is ready to be revealed in the last time.

Praise God by having full faith in Him!
