I Chronicles 29:14 - Everything we have has come from You, and we only give You what is Yours already.
Many of us have trouble relating to the prayer, “God, give us today our daily bread.” Because our pantries are so packed and our stomach so full, we seldom ask for food. More likely, we need to ask for self-control and say, “God, help me not to eat so much.”

Exodus 14:14 - The LORD will fight for you; you need only to be still.
The twins of fear and doubt roll in like thirty-foot waves and crash onto the shore of our soul. They produce anxiety that leads to more fear and “what if” questions that lead to doubt.
Fresh from being delivered from slavery, the Israelites were caught betwee...Read Full Post »

Jeremiah 29:11-13 “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. Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.”
Whatever your circumstance, I can promise you this: God has not forgotten y...Read Full Post »

Proverbs 15:33 - "...and humility comes before honor"
Humiliation of soul always brings a positive blessing with it. If we empty our hearts of self God will fill them with his love.
Stoop if you would climb to heaven. Do we not say of Jesus, "He descended that he might ascend?" so must you. You must grow downwards, that you may grow up...Read Full Post »

Isaiah 2:3 - Come, let us go up to the mountain of the Lord...
After we shifted to our new house in Pune, hills and mountains are always within our line of sight. One thing that stands out is, how it attracts the eyes that look unto them as if saying, "Come yonder, witness the beauty and breathe the fresh air blowing in this higher summits". And yes, I have answered the calls few times and been there at...Read Full Post »

Psalm 63:8 - I cling to you; your right hand upholds me.
Sometimes all we can do is hold on. One doctor’s visit leaves our mind spinning. One phone call changes the course of our days. One text leaves our hearts heavy. These are not the times when we feel like considering the five possible interpretations of a difficult passage. We may not be up for reading a book about the theology and practice of pray...Read Full Post »

1 Corinthians 4:10 - We are fools for Christ, but you are so wise in Christ!...
Hello! I have been fooling around in God's grace. Its exactly 186 days since I last updated the Daily Bible verse here! After my last update on Sep 26, 2012 - a little miracle was born into my life. We were blessed with a baby girl on Sep 27, 2012 and she indeed kept me busy and at the same time filled me with His joy and gr...Read Full Post »

Oh! the wind of time has curbed its flow,
Human stakes are high but their prices low.
Soul, once Divine, has lost its poise;
Is it time to raise Ecclesia's voice?
Oh! the Glossy sun has lost its glow,
Gifts of spirit o...Read Full Post »

Jonah 1:17 – 2:1 : But the LORD provided a great fish to swallow Jonah, and Jonah was inside the fish three days and three nights. From inside the fish Jonah prayed to the LORD his God.
Jonah had been running from God, ignoring God, wanting nothing to do with God…until…he woke up in the belly of a great fish. Amazing how our circumstance changes our attitude. Amazing, isn’t it, h...Read Full Post »

John 4:10 - This is love; not that we loved God, but that he loved us.
Love never fails!
Wait a minute, no one has unfailing love! No person can love with perfection.
That’s right. But God is not a person. Unlike our love, his love never fails!...Read Full Post »

Psalm 94:18-19 - When I said, “My foot is slipping,” your unfailing love, LORD, supported me. When anxiety was great within me, your consolation brought me joy.
Sometimes we can feel it coming on. Like a person who loses his footing on a steep climb, we can feel our emotions slipping. The waves of anxiety build until they crash into our hearts and drench our souls.

Job 36:26 - How great is God–beyond our understanding! The number of his years is past finding out.
How can those trapped in an aging body understand the One who never changes?
How can those who measure life by birthdays comprehend the One who has never had one?
How can one...Read Full Post »

Proverbs 10:19 - When words are many, sin is not absent, but he who holds his tongue is wise.
In the last Sunday school class, I took a lesson on "Taming the tongue" teaching the kids from the book of James chapter 3. The chapter makes us aware of the haphazards that a small tongue can cause.
And today’s verse is a warning to the pers...Read Full Post »

Psalm 42:1-2 - As the deer pants for streams of water, so my soul pants for you, my God. My soul thirsts for God, for the living God. When can I go and meet with God?
The deer is out of breath and out of strength. His running through the mountains has exhausted his body but focused his mind. There is one thing he can think about…one thing he needs. He yearns for a mountain stream, running with co...Read Full Post »

Psalm 111:2 - Great are the works of the LORD; they are pondered by all who delight in them.
The word “ponder” means to “seek with care, consider something deeply and thoroughly, meditate upon.” There are many of God’s great works we could ponder, but for today let’s consider one aspect of God’s great creation—the stars.

Proverbs 3:5-6 - Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.
Wholehearted trust. That’s where a life sold out to God begins. The life of faith is not based on probabilities (the desire to eliminate risk) but possibilities (the desire to see God do amazing things). Trust is believing that throu...Read Full Post »

Isaiah 58:11 - The Lord will guide you always; he will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land and will strengthen your frame. You will be like a well-watered garden, like a spring whose waters never fail.
The above verse leads to couple of most obvious questions :-
Who does the Lord guide? What does the Lord guide them to?
We find the answer to the first question in the book of Psalms 25:9. He guides the humble in ...Read Full Post »
