Day 5 // Mary

Even though she prayed about it, Melinda didn’t have much hope. She had just finished an interview for a dream position with a terrific company and great benefits. The reason she didn’t have much hope is because three of the other candidates were graduates of Ivy League Universities with a myriad of qualifications.

Day 4 // Joseph

My friend, just because you are facing some obstacles does not mean that you don’t have the favor of God. The enemy tries to steal, kill and destroy, but God has the final word. Because you have His favor. In Joseph’s case, he ended up being reunited with his family, with blessings from both his earthly father and heavenly father.

Day 1 // Noah

Genesis 6 tells us that there was great wickedness on the earth. Sin was so bad that God found it necessary to destroy the inhabitants of the earth. Except for one man and his family. Noah. Why did God find favor in Noah? Scripture says because he was a righteous and blameless man who walked with God (Gen. 6:9). In the middle of a sinful people, Noah stood out. And God’s favor on Noah was a game changer.

Psalm 23 – 6 Gifts From God

The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing. He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, he refreshes my soul. He guides me along the right paths for his name’s sake. Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. Surely your goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever. Psalm 23 (NIV)

The Blessings of Psalm 84

How lovely is your dwelling place, Lord Almighty! My soul yearns, even faints, for the courts of the Lord; my heart and my flesh cry out for the living God. Even the sparrow has found a home, and the swallow a nest for herself, where she may have her young— a place near your altar, Lord Almighty, my King and my God. Blessed are those who dwell in your house; they are ever praising you. Psalm 84:1-4
