    “Joy, begin to rise, Hope, begin to light the dark, Our God exchanges Old for New. “ The book of Joel is about two different sides of God upon His nation Israel. One is God’s wrath and punishment, and the other is God’s mercy and love. Joel begins with God’s anger on Israel, but ends with God redeeming Israel and destroying their enemies. God is making Israel into the nation He desired for it to be. How amazing is our God to take away the evil in our lives and transform us for who He called us to be! -What ways is God calling you to be more like Him? -How can you turn from your old habits to produce Godly habits?

    Hosea was called to do a difficult task. God called him to marry a woman of whoredom, and bear children of whoredom. God calls the name of Hosea’s children: Jezreel, No Mercy, and Not my people. These are some interesting names for children, but God is using Hosea and his family situation for him to understand God’s anger and heartache towards His nation Israel. When Hosea’s wife, Gomer, leaves Hosea and his children for another man, God calls Hosea to go to her, and reunite their marriage. This symbolizes God’s perseverance and everlasting love towards His rebellious children. He will constantly be looking for those who are not part of His family, and He calls His children to do the same. -Are their relationships in your life that need God’s healing? -What ways can you look past someone’s choices, and love them as a person?

    6 For the righteous will never be moved; he will be remembered forever. 7 He is not afraid of bad news; his heart is firm, trusting in the Lord. 8 His heart is steady; he will not be afraid, until he looks in triumph on his adversaries. 9 He has distributed freely; he has given to the poor; his righteousness endures forever; his horn is exalted in honor. Psalm 112:6-9 If you read nothing else today, I urge you to read Psalm 112. There's nothing I can add to it, nothing that can make it more understandable. It's simply truth for those of us who have accepted Christ as our Lord. May it strengthen you as you prepare for the week ahead 💕 ❤️@tocapturetoday

    "We must allow the Word of God to confront us, to disturb our security, to undermine our complacency, and to overthrow our patterns of thought and behavior." -Anglican minister John Stott Isaiah can be a bit of a scary book to read - chapters about wrath and judgement aren't exactly light, comforting reading with your morning coffee. But it's so important for us to keep reading these Old Testament passages, because it reminds us of the greatness of God...and the sinfulness of ourselves. Israel was so full of pride, God had to go to extreme measures to get their attention. What about us today? What is the Word calling us to wake up to in our own lives? May we not become blinded by our own security and comfort that we forget to keep God as the director of our lives 💕 ❤️@tocapturetoday

    "Oh give thanks to the Lord, for he is good, for his steadfast love endures forever! Let the redeemed of the Lord say so, whom he has redeemed from trouble." From Psalm 107 📖 . While reading these chapters from 2 Kings and Psalms the last couple of days, the concept of Mercy seemed to be woven throughout every chapter. . Mercy: compassion or forgiveness shown toward someone whom it is within one's power to punish or harm. . Yesterday, Hezekiah tore gold off the temple of God to give to the King of Assyria, yet God saw his repentant heart, and did not deliver Judah to the Assyrians. . Today, Hezekiah was near death, but God granted him 15 more years of life. Unfortunately, Manasseh was born during that time, and he drew Judah far from God. But when we keep reading, we see the arrival of Josiah! An 8-year old king who discovered a love and reverence for the true God. God still had to punish sin, but He had Mercy on those who followed Him. . God has great power, might, and justice, but sometimes He chooses to bestow mercy on those who may not deserve it (in this case, Judah). He is a good and loving God. . Remember that this week. No matter what you do, it is never too late to turn back to Jesus. He sees your heart, and His arms are open for you every time. We mess up, and it can be difficult to face the Almighty after that, but remember that He IS love, and He is full of Mercy 💕

    2 Kings can be a difficult book to read. As the story flips between the kings in the northern kingdom (Israel) and the southern kingdom (Judah), we see them rise to power and commit atrocious evils. Trying to stay on top, it seems they only seek God when they want to go to war or fall ill. And yet, even in the midst of these stories, we see glimpses into God’s character. • In 2 Kings 8:19, addressing the evil ways of Israel’s King Joram, we see God’s faithfulness. “For the sake of his servant David, the Lord was unwilling to destroy Judah, since he had promised to give a lamp to David and his sons forever.” • In this darkness, the Lord is working to preserve the light. In John 8:12, Jesus says, “I am the light of the world. Anyone who follows me will never walk in the darkness but will have the light of life.” The Lord’s preservation of Judah’s lineage wasn’t just a promise kept to David, but a promise fulfilled for the whole world since Jesus was David’s heir! The lamp, but a glimpse of the light to come. • >>Where has the darkness been casting long shadows over your life? >>Where do you need His light today? • 🙏🏾Father God, I feel the darkness, blanketing our city, your people, even my life. Help me to trust you and follow you, so I may rise into your light. Shine on me, Lord, illuminating even the darkest shadows, so others may be drawn to you and your glory. Amen

    Day 100! 🎉 • No matter if you’re following along with the #ReadScripture app or doing your own thing, we hope this year has begun or even continued a journey of finding rhythm in your relationship with God. If you’ve gotten out of the habit, today is a new day, and as Lamentations 3 reminds us, “The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning.” • So take a deep breath, inhaling the Lord’s love, His mercy, His faithfulness today, and then respond in praise. • Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth. Worship the Lord with gladness; come before him with joyful songs. Know that the Lord is God. It is he who made us, and we are his; we are his people, the sheep of his pasture. Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name. For the Lord is good and his love endures forever; his faithfulness continues through all generations. — Psalm 100 . . . . . #riseintheword #readscripture #readyourbible #knowhisword

    King David. A man after God’s own heart. Samuel assumes that God will choose Eliab, David’s brother, based on his outer appearance. However, God tells Samuel that He looks at the heart, not one’s outer being. God chooses David, a shepherd boy to be the next King. David comes from the lowest point in society to being called into the highest position of his time. This is a reminder of how God came to us in human flesh as Jesus. David and Jesus both obeyed God, and God took care of them as they planted His kingdom on earth. How can God transform your heart to see people the way He sees them? What ways can God help you become someone after His heart? #riseintheword Words by @hisbelovedaughter

    Saul was chosen by God to become King of Israel. However, Saul didn’t cede the peoples’ requests. He was full of himself, and didn’t follow Samuel’s commands to be a servant of God by ruling over Israel. As we see in Psalm 81:11-12: “But my people did not listen to my voice; Israel would not submit to me. So I gave them over to their stubborn hearts, to follow their own counsels.” God listened to His people, and granted their request. Although Saul isn’t the rightful king of Israel, God has sought out a man after his own heart (1 Sam. 13:14.) Abba, You know what you are doing during this time. Your plans are never meant for harm. I pray I trust you, and that my senses are aware Of what is yet to come. You will never let me down. #riseintheword Words by @hisbelovedaughter

    At the beginning of 1 Samuel, we are introduced to Hannah. Hannah was favored by her husband Elkanah, although she did not bear any children because the Lord had closed her womb. Hannah was devastated that she could not be a mother, BUT the Lord had a plan for her. She was not trapped by her situation, but rather she made a covenant with God to give her son to Him. Once Hannah humbled herself, God remembered her, and blessed her with a son, whose name was Samuel. There are moments in life where we don’t see the final result, and we want to escape from the hardships of the situation rather than learn from it. God had great plans for Hannah. He desired for her to come to Him with her needs so that she could see His power within her difficulty. -Have you been/are you in a situation that seems hopeless? -How have you learned/are learning from your situation? -What ways can you humble yourself like Hannah demonstrated? #riseintheword Words by @hisbelovedaughter

    The story of Ruth reveals one the most important themes we see in scripture. Redemption. . . Just as Ruth was in need of a redeemer in Boaz, God has given us a redeemer too, and that redeemer is Jesus Christ. We too were foreigners like Ruth and empty like Naomi, but Jesus came down to rescue us from our desolation. He sacrificed everything because He chose to save us in His sovereign grace. . . “You with your arm redeemed Your people...” Psalm 77:15 . . How has Jesus redeemed you? How is he continually rescuing you? . . #riseintheword Words by @taborbrown
