Psalm 118: 24 This is the day which the Lord has made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.

1 John 3:7 Dear children, do not let anyone lead you astray. The one who does what is right is righteous, just as he is righteous. The one who does what is sinful is of the devil, because the devil has been sinning from the beginning. The reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the devil’s work. No one who is born of God will continue to sin, because God’s seed remains in them; they cannot go on sinning, because they have been born of God.

Ephesians 2:10 For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.

David prayed, “Psalm 61:6-8New International Version (NIV)

Increase the days of the king’s life,
his years for many generations.
May he be enthroned in God’s presence forever;
appoint your love and faithfulness to protect him.

Then I will ever sing in praise of your name
and fulfill my vows day after day.

God is in control. David knew it. I know it. And, you know it.

He did not just make the world and then just walk away. He walked with man in the garden. He talked with man in the garden. He walks and talks with us today. God is never changing. He is the same, yesterday, today, and forever.

2 Corinthians 9:7 Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work. As it is written:

“They have freely scattered their gifts to the poor;
their righteousness endures forever.”

He has created us to do his will. Now, tell me this, how are we going to do what God wants us to do if we don’t ask him? And if we do ask him, do we expect to get an answer? When you pray, it had better be a two-sided conversation or you’ll never “get it.”

Jeremiah 29:11New International Version (NIV)

11 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
