Faith – Verse of the day – Day 55
100 post popular verses according to Bible Gateway continued.
Dear father, no matter how many times I fall down I shall get back up. When I don’t know why adversity comes upon me I will never give up this fight of faith. My enemy would love nothing more that for me to say I am not worthy and give up. That is true I am not worth but Christ Jesus is and I have accepted God’s final sacrifice, his son Jesus.
Today as I thank you for another day given to me by truth and grace let me never look at the things seen but press onward for the things unseen. I will press on for faith is a belief in something that you can not see yet.
David W. Aucoin
Reflection verse: Psalm 56:1-7
1 Be merciful to me, my God, for my enemies are in hot pursuit; all day long they press their attack.
2 My adversaries pursue me all day long; in their pride many are attacking me.
3 When I am afraid, I put my trust in you.
4 In God, whose word I praise—in God I trust and am not afraid. What can mere mortals do to me?
5 All day long they twist my words; all their schemes are for my ruin.
6 They conspire, they lurk, they watch my steps, hoping to take my life.
7 Because of their wickedness do not[c] let them escape; in your anger, God, bring the nations down.
Verse of the day – Faith
And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.
