January 1
If He’s happy, I’m happy.
The Lord takes pleasure in them that fear him, in those that hope in his mercy.

Only through judgment can deliverance come.
Thou didst cause judgment to be heard from heaven; the earth feared, and
was still, when God arose to judgment, to save all the meek of the earth.
Psalm 76.8,9
January 3
If you knew you could not fail, what would you attempt for God?
What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against
us?   Romans 8.31
January 4
If you don’t say the Name, you aren’t spreading His Fame.
Sing unto the Lord, bless his name; shew forth his salvation from day to day.
Declare his glory among the heathen, his wonders among all people.
Psalm 96.2,3
January 5
Say the Name; spread His fame.

for evermore.  Psalm 86.12

I crucify the flesh with its passions and lusts.
And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.
If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.  Galatians 5.24, 25

God keeps covenant with me.  He is my protector, supplier, destroyer
of my enemies.

my mercy.  Psalm 59.17
January 8
Only the dead in Christ rest in peace.
For he that is entered into his rest, he also hath ceased from his own works,
as God did from his. Let us labor therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man
fall after the same example of unbelief.   Hebrews 4.10, 11
January 9
Funny, how the dead in Christ resurrect.
Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was
raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should
walk in newness of life. For if we have been planted together in the likeness of
his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection.
Romans 6.4, 5
January 10
I am the child of the Holy Ghost, child of the Covenant of Grace,       
child of a Father who loves me.

be called the sons of God...   1 John 3.1
January 11
Conform to the mind of Christ, the will of the Father, the heart of the
Holy Spirit.
I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your
bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable
service.   Romans 12.1
January 12
I live by this rule. I am crucified to the world, and the world is
crucified to me.
But God forbid that I should glory, save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ,
by whom the world is crucified unto me, and I unto the world...and as many as
walk according to this rule, peace be on them, and mercy, and upon the Israel
of God.   Galatians 6.14, 16
January 13
Know,  reckon,  yield.
What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound?
Romans 6.1
January 14
Knowing who God is enables me to be all I can be.
Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children; and walk in love, as Christ
also has loved us, and has given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to
God for a sweet smelling savior.   Ephesians 5.1, 2

Be it unto you according to your faith.

man know it.   Matthew 9.29, 30
January 16
Look at God!
Look unto Me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and
there is none else.  Isaiah 45.22

You become what you behold.
But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are
changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the
Lord.   2 Corinthians 3.18
January 18
I can be all that God has declared of me.
What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against
us? He that spared not his own Son, But delivered him up for us all, how shall
he not with him also freely give us all things?   Romans 8.31, 32
January 19
Change your mind; change your life.
He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not
life. These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of
God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the
name of the Son of God.   1 John 5.12, 13
January 20
If you can see it, you can have it.
For all the land which thou seest, to thee will I give it, and to thy seed forever.
Genesis 13.15
January 21
The eye of faith sees beyond the temporal world to the eternal God.
Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or
think, according to the power that works in us, unto him be glory in the church
by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen.
Ephesians 3.20, 21
January 22
God always has a place for the one who is prepared.
Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needs not to be
ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.   2 Timothy 2.15
January 23
Character is forged in the furnace of affliction.
That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that
perishes, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honor and
glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ.   1 Peter 1.7
January 24
When you fail God’s test, remember, you can choose Christ as your
But God commends his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners,
Christ died for us. Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall
be saved from wrath through him.   Romans 5.8, 9
January 25
It’s a “come as you are” party. Come as you are. Leave as God desires
you to be.
And Jesus said unto them, Come ye after me, and I will make you to become
fishers of men.   Mark 1.17
January 26
We are becoming what God has declared us to be.
For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is
written, The just shall live by faith.   Romans 1.17
January 27
If you’ve walked through the valley of the shadow of death, you fear
no evil.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil:
for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
Psalm 23.4
January 28
Light dispels the darkness.
And I will bring the blind by a way that they knew not; I will lead them in paths
that they have not known; I will make darkness light before them, and crooked
things straight. These things will I do unto them, and not forsake them.
Isaiah 42.16
January 29
Holy Spirit, make it so. Take the Word, and make it so.
For what man knows the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in
him? Even so the things of God knows no man, but the Spirit of God. Now we
have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit which is of God; that we
might know the things that are freely given to us of God.
1 Corinthians 2.11, 12
January 30
“Look not to the honor, but tend to the responsibilities.’’
Charles Spurgeon
And the Lord was with Joseph, and he was a prosperous man...and his master
saw that the Lord was with him...and Joseph found grace in his sight, and he
served him: and he made him overseer over his house, and all that he had he
put into his hand.   Genesis 39.2-4
January 31
The eye of faith sees with the mind of Christ.
But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that comes to God must
believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.
Hebrews 11.6
