VerseD: Isaiah 9:2

VerseD: Numbers 6:24-26

Seek God, and may you find the blessings of His love and grace.

VerseD: Matthew 7:7

“Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.”

Matthew 7:7, ESV

God wants to give us good things. Whenever we ask according to His will, we will receive. Sometimes He still gives, even when we don’t ask or don’t ask correctly.

He especially will give us when we ask for His glory, usually to share the Gospel.

VerseD: Proverbs 11:25

VerseD: Deuteronomy 30:16

Deuteronomy 30:16, ESV

God explained His commandments, statutes, and rules simply: Love God, love people, love the Church.

600 Straight Days of Well VerseD Thoughts

On May 1, 2018, I began writing daily mini-devotionals with a verse (or short passage) of the day, calling them VerseD.

Now, due to errors in the WordPress app loading a couple of days VerseD’s before I went on a 3-day river trip, WP thinks I missed a few days in my run.

Sad.

So, I will just go with what they tell me … at least for today!

So, for 600 straight days, the internet has been getting VerseD in my thoughts on Scripture.

Do you feel well VerseD in the Bible?

I invite you to do two things:

  1. Join me (or continue joining me) in your daily Scripture reading, and
  2. Let me know if you enjoy getting these daily mini-devos!
    1. Bonus: Any thoughts on adding to these, such as longer devotionals or video VerseD messages and what they could look like. IT IS ON YOU TO DECIDE! (Somewhat.)

It has been one of those blessed burdens to post these. I do not always feel like finding the strength, time, and energy to post these, but I am always blessed by my time in the Word. And a few brothers and sisters tend to come along and encourage me on those days it is the hardest to share or that I feel like I wasted my words.

Hopefully, on this Easter/Resurrection Sunday, you are blessed by my words and, more importantly, God’s Word.

In His Love,

Daniel

VerseD: Jeremiah 17:7

“Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, whose trust is the Lord.
Jeremiah 17:7, ESV

Trusting the Lord brings the blessings of forgiveness, grace, a changed heart and mind, inner peace, and eternal life in Christ.

VerseD: Ephesians 3:20-21

Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen.
Ephesians 3:20‭-‬21, ESV

We ask God without knowing what He has for us. We fail to understand grace, peace, forgiveness, and eternity. Yet we think we know what to ask for in this life.

Seek first the Kingdom, and you will be amazed at what He does.

VerseD: Deuteronomy 30:16

in that I command you today to love the Lord your God, to walk in His ways and to keep His commandments and His statutes and His judgments, that you may live and multiply, and that the Lord your God may bless you in the land where you are entering to possess it.
Deuteronomy 30:16, NASB

God expects love and devotion with perfect obedience. The great news for us is that He helps us with the power of His Holy Spirit and through the perfect sacrifice of His Son so that God sees the Son when He looks at us.

SNOW! And a welcome blessing

I finally got back into making some videos! Hopefully, this is for a while.

This time around, this is a “Hey! How’s it going? It’s been a while!” type of video, with a reminder that through the good times and the bad, God is good.

Snow can be a reminder that God has said, “Behold, I am making all things new.” (Revelation 21:5)

It is a reminder that His grace has covered all our sins and troubles. Our troubles will not be removed until Christ’s return, but until then we have the promise that He is watching over us.

Therefore, as I have done many times before, I offer the comfort of the priestly blessing from Numbers 6:24-26:

The Lord bless you and keep you.

The Lord make his face to shine upon you and be gracious to you.

The Lord lift up His countenance upon you and give you peace.
