Verse of the Day for Monday,

6 And the words of the Lord are flawless,

like silver purified in a crucible,

like gold[a] refined seven times. Psalm 12:6

Thoughts on Today’s Verse

“The words of the Lord” are given to us in writing. They are pure, do not contain any error. They are absolutely and totally reliable.

Perhaps you ask yourself how it can be since they were transmitted to us by human channels, men who were often weak, fallible and who made mistakes. How can it be that the message that reaches us through them is absolutely infallible and authority?

The psalmist uses a very beautiful image. He says they are like clean money in a terrestrial crucible, seven times refined. Money represents God’s message; The earth crucible represents the instrument, the human messenger. There is a fire in this crucible which is that of the Holy Spirit, infinitely pure, infinitely purified. When the message goes through fire, even if it is in a crucible earth, the fire purifies it and makes it absolutely reliable.

This is why we can undoubtedly have faith in absolute precision and the authority of the Word of God, holy writing. The words of God are pure. They have been purified seven times (this is the Holy Spirit) in a crucible earth (they come out as pure as well as sleek money)

Verse of the Day for Tuesday,

New International Version

10 Though my father and mother forsake me,

the Lord will receive me. Psalm 27:10

Thoughts on Today’s Verse

I have come to realize that most of the people we meet or have daily contact with have no idea of ​​the immense value they have as children of God.

I believe the devil is working hard to make people devalue themselves. We can, however, neutralize the effect of its lies and insinuations by uplifting, encouraging, and edifying those who cross our path.

One way is to give sincere compliments. It is one of the most precious gifts we can give in this world. Giving a sincere compliment may seem like a small thing, but it actually gives strength to those who are insecure or feel like they’re unimportant.


As I worked with God to develop good habits of encouragement, I challenged myself to compliment at least three people a day. I recommend you do the same to help you become a resolutely encouraging person.

The Bible says that God makes those who feel abandoned his children. Let’s find those people and work to lift them up and show them their worth. Let everyone know that God loves him!

7 They will have no fear of bad news;

8 Their hearts are secure, they will have no fear;

in the end they will look in triumph on their foes. Psalm 112:1-8

Thoughts on Today’s Verse

Life can be full of stressful situations. Events that cause concern and fear. But God has provided a way to get through life so they don’t dominate us.

First of all, we must not be afraid of others, but fear the Lord. It means focusing on him, revering him and honoring him. Have an intimate and personal relationship with him. Seeking Him and devoting the most important part of our life to Him. As we get closer to him, we will see our fears fade away.

We should also find great pleasure in his commandments. We cannot just read the Bible once in a while. If we want to be free from fear and worry, we must find great pleasure in his Word. We must hide the words it contains in our heart, meditate on them and concentrate on them. They give us stability, clarity and certainty.

Third, we must trust him. In our daily lives, we may find ourselves confronted with troubling situations and people who may worry us. We must understand that everything in the world is temporary. Trusting God changes our attitude and our outlook, because he does not change, and he is always with us.

This lifestyle frees us from fear and also gives us a generous spirit. We stop worrying and realize that God has blessed us so we can bless others. We can be generous because we know He provides for us. We can be confident, our heart can stay

Verse of the Day for Thursday,

34 Jesus said, “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing.”[a] And they divided up his clothes by casting lots. Luke 23:34

Thoughts on Today’s Verse

I once heard the story of a drunk teenager who had caused an accident resulting in the death of a woman and her child. This woman’s husband knew that God wanted him to forgive the young man responsible for the accident. Through his perseverance in prayer, he was able to let God’s love flow through him.

This man knew how to forgive like Jesus and he understood that the young man was also bruised and needed healing. When people hurt us, we should learn to look at what they have done to themselves instead of looking only at our hurt.

Usually, when a person has hurt another, they usually suffer at least as much themselves from the fallout and the consequences of their actions. This is why Jesus said of his murderers, when he was hanging on the cross: “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing.” Here is an extraordinary forgiveness.

May this inspire us today. We should all seek to forgive like Jesus.

Verse of the Day for Friday,

34 Hope in the Lord

and keep his way.

He will exalt you to inherit the land;

when the wicked are destroyed, you will see it. Psalm 37:34

Thoughts on Today’s Verse

A vision given by God is like a seed. It takes time to take root before it can bear fruit. It is the same with the conception of a child: first the seed, then gestation and development in the womb, and finally childbirth. What is the mother doing during this time? She prepares for challenges and parenting responsibilities.

You feel like you are ready, but only God knows the right time. Although David was anointed to be king, he had to wait another seven years until God took the throne away from Saul. During these years, he learned valuable lessons.

Here is one: “Hope in the Lord, keep his way, and he will exalt you to inherit the land; you will see the wicked cut off.” We must distinguish between what we can do and what God can do. Fools rush headlong! If we do not want the fulfillment of God’s plan for us to be delayed, we must not go faster than he.

The Bible says: “It is a vision whose deadline is fixed. (…) If it tarries, wait for it, for it will certainly come to pass.” (Habacuk 2.3) God works by appointment, and an appointment is just a pre-scheduled event. God has provided a time to accomplish two things in our lives: His promises and our vision.

We are in great peace when we know that the enemy can do nothing to anticipate these two things. So, if we get impatient, we must remember this: “Hope in the Lord, keep his way, and he will exalt you.”
