Imagine a world where you didn’t have to worry and stress about tomorrow, or your future, or how current struggles will play out. Well my friend, you don’t need to imagine. That’s what life with God on our side is like.

Proverbs 16:3 tells us that if we trust God with our plans, He will make them succeed. That doesn’t mean everything will always work out the way we want or expect. It means we can trust Him with our plans because no matter what happens, He will work it out. Ask God for that kind of trust today.

How many of you have ever had someone speak about you behind your back? Or had that secret that you told someone get out to everyone. And how much does that feeling suck? In the same breath though, how many of us have spoken about others, even the people we love, behind their backs and shared their secrets?

Gossip is tempting. It’s easy. And it’s wrong. Before you speak a word about anyone, ask yourself if you’d say the same thing in front of them? Ask God today to help you measure your words and be the trustworthy people that Proverbs 11:13 speaks about.

Are you an encourager?

Lately I have been so aware of how easy it is to break each other down with the words we say to one another. This got me thinking about what it means to be an encourager? The dictionary gives us this definition: “Encouragement is the action of giving someone support, confidence, or hope.”

We as believers have this amazing opportunity to give support, encouragement and even hope to those around us, because of Jesus and who He is in our lives.
Proverbs 11:25 says that as we encourage others, we will also be encouraged.
Who in your world can you encourage today?

What’s the one thing would you ask for if you could have anything in the world? In 1 Kings 3:3-14 God appears to Solomon in a dream and tells him he could have anything his heart desired, all he had to do was ask. Solomon pretty much shocks the whole world by asking for wisdom. Seriously, wisdom? Not more money, or fame, or more stuff!

In Proverbs 8:10-11 Jesus tells us that wisdom is exactly what we should desire above silver and gold – that wisdom is far more valuable than rubies. As you chat with God today, ask Him to give you more of His wisdom.
