God’s Word for Every Day
Blessed is the man who believes and trusts in and relies on the Lord And whose hope and confident expectation is the Lord. Jeremiah 17:7
Mr. Jim and Mrs. Hardman
pray that the story of the Bible delights you and brings you hope now and forever.
Worship and Praise God, our Father, Jesus, His Son, and the Holy Spirit
Thy will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven,
God is The Father, Son (Jesus), and the Holy Spirit. God created a perfect World. It was very good.
Satan tempted. Adam and Eve sinned (disobeyed God). The wages of sin is death, separation from God for eternity.
God makes ‘The Way’ (Jesus) I will crush your head, Satan.
“I will make you (Abraham) a great nation (Israel). All people on earth will be blessed through you. God speaks and gives the Commandments to the nation of Israel. Jesus said the greatest Commandments are: Love the Lord your God with all your heart, mind, soul, and strength. Love your neighbor as yourself.
God’s presence with the people of Israel. Build a sanctuary ‘A Holy Place’ for Me. I am the Lord their God and I will dwell among my people. And they will worship me.
God’s people continuously turn away from Him. They do not obey God’s commands. God’s people worship idols. They worship idols of other nations, the sun, moon, stars, statues. They make for themselves idols, like a golden calf.
God hates sin. He is just. The wages of sin is death.But God is merciful.
God spoke through the prophets of a blessing promised to Abraham in Israel. Jesus was wounded for our transgressions, Jesus was crushed for our wickedness, our sin, our injustice, our wrongdoing; The punishment we deserved fell on Him, By His stripes, by His wounds we are healed.
Satan is crushed.
Confess with your mouth, Jesus is Lord. Believe in your heart, God raised Him from the dead. And you will be saved.
Be a witness.
Tell others Jesus Saves.
Love the Lord your God with all your heart, mind, soul, and strength
Love your neighbor as yourself.
A new heaven and a new earth;
The first heaven and the first earth had passed away.
God Himself will be with us.
God will wipe away every tear from our eyes;
and there will no longer be death;
there will no longer be sorrow, or crying, or pain;
for the former order of things has passed away.
All things are made new.
Yesterday - God’s will was done.
Today - God’s will is being done.
Tomorrow and Forever
- God’s will will be done.
Father, We praise and worship you. You are above all. There is none like you. I pray your mercy be known. Our sins confessed. Your grace received. Our faith grows. You are Lord.
In Jesus Holy Name, Amen.
