Thought for the day Archive


Verse of the day: Matthew 6:26 Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?

Thought for the day: Jesus tells us not to worry about our life on earth. The birds we see in one season of a year may or may not be seen during next year. Studies show that most adult small birds live for between 1¼ and 1½ years, but that only about 10-20% of young reach adulthood. Big birds, seabirds and tropical birds can live much longer. Jesus says, how much more valuable we are when compared with such birds. The question is “Do we find ourselves valuable to God?” If so, we don’t allow worry to spoil our precious life on earth. Let us consider ourselves valuable to God.

Verse of the day: Psalm 90:1 Lord, You have been our dwelling place in all generations.

Thought for the day:This was a prayer of Moses. Think of Moses, everything he saw in the wilderness was the pillar of cloud and the pillar of fire, the glory of God. There was no other shelter or refuge other than the very presence of the Lord. For anything and everything he had to depend on the Lord. If you are child of God, started your walk in faith like Moses, understand the Lord is at work in your life removing all that you have been depending on. May be your health, your wealth, friends, relatives, parents, own children even own family. What you considered as your strength is no more your strength; those you thought you can depend on are no more with you. You are brought into a situation where you turn around and find none, hopelessness everywhere. Moses at the end of his life standing in the wilderness lifted his hands up in the same situation as you are in today. Do you know why all these are happening to you? The Lord wants you to depend on Him completely so that you may say, “Lord, You have been my dwelling place in all generations.” That was the experience of Moses in Psalm 90:1.

Verse of the day: Psalm 34:10 The young lions lack and suffer hunger; But those who seek the LORD shall not lack any good thing.

Thought for the day:Young lions are never going to be hungry as either they are always taken care by the lionesses or they are already trained to hunt and kill their own prey. God’s Word says, even if they suffer hunger, those who seek the Lord lack nothing. What a blessing it is to know that our Lord takes care those who seek Him. It is not just a statement. It is Word of God. With no doubt, claim this promise and receive the one that is lacking in your life for quite a long time.

Verse of the day: Isaiah 53:6 All we like sheep have gone astray; We have turned, every one, to his own way; And the LORD has laid on Him the iniquity of us all.

Thought for the day: A lost sheep doesn’t come back by itself. The shepherd has to go and find before it gets torn apart. Today we are not ripped into pieces, but joined together and stand as man or woman of God, families and churches only because the good Shepherd Jesus Christ came searching for us. We can never forget this fact.

Verse of the day: Psalm 73:18 Surely You set them in slippery places; You cast them down to destruction.

Thought for the day: When everything goes alright no one knows who the child of God is. People may see the prosperity of the wicked and may not even care about the righteous. But when suddenly trouble comes in their way, the ungodly becomes helpless. But the mercy surrounds the one who trusts in the Lord. Not establishing life on the basis of the Word of God is like standing in the slippery places. Anytime they can be pulled down. In fact, God himself cast them down to destruction. Wickedness voids the guarantee of our life on earth. Come under the mercy of God. Let His mercy and grace surround you today.
