“Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you” (1 Peter 5:7).

God didn’t create us to carry anxiety, worry, or stress. True humility is realizing this, and giving Him the destructive emotions that we were never equipped to handle.

July 2
“For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them” (Matthew 18:20).

Prayer is a heart-to-heart conversation with God. He honors prayers that believers offer up in Jesus’ name.

July 3
“Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me. I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing” (John 15:4, 5).

It is impossible to live a Christian life without Christ. Apart from Him as our vine, we are simply branches that will eventually wither and die.

July 5
“Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me” (John 14:6).

Jesus Christ took all the punishment for our sins on Himself; no false gods can claim to have done what He did. There is no other way to God except through Jesus.

July 6
“For ye have need of patience, that, after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise” (Hebrews 10:36).

Patience is not simply “putting up with” something; it is remaining constantly, consistently the same in all situations. Patience is faith that is consistently applied over a period of time.

July 7
“But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you” (Matthew 6:33).

God’s Word planted in us makes our souls prosperous. A prosperous soul chooses to seek out the things of God.

July 8
“And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God” (Romans 12:2).

God’s presence in us makes us holy and sets us apart from the world. This holiness includes letting His Word transform our minds and teach us to think differently than everyone else.

July 9
“The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?” (Psalm 27:1).

The Believer who knows God will never be ruled by fear.

July 10
“He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness…” (Psalm 23:3).

Trust God to give you restoration and lead you down His path. He’ll never steer you wrong.

July 11
“Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my strength, and my redeemer” (Psalm 19:14).

God wants the words you speak to reflect purity in your heart. Keep your thought life focused on His commandments, instead of sinful indulgence.

July 12
“Judge me, O Lord; for I have walked in mine integrity: I have trusted also in the Lord; therefore I shall not slide” (Psalm 26:1).

When you walk in integrity, God will not allow you to slip or fall.

July 13
“By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God” (Romans 5:2).

Faith and grace always operate together; our faith takes what God’s grace has made available to us. Jesus is grace in human form; because of what He did, we can joyfully stand in God’s presence.

July 14
“Seeing, therefore, it remaineth that some must enter therein, and they to whom it was first preached entered not in because of unbelief” (Hebrews 4:6).
We must not allow unbelief to steal the peace of mind that God’s promises bring. Resting confidently in His Word is the true test of whether or not we really believe.

July 15
“And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you” (Matthew 17:20).

Faith in God carries great power. When we employ it consistently, faith will produce extraordinary results.

July 16
“For they are life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh” (Proverbs 4:22).

The Bible is full of promises; when we have a problem, we can respond by finding the specific Scripture in the Word of God that pertains to our situation. Each promise has the power to change our lives, if we believe it.

July 17
“Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man: But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed” (James 1:13-14).

Some Christians incorrectly believe that God will tempt them with sin to test their devotion to Him. However, God is not the tempter. We become vulnerable to sin when we give attention to Satan’s suggestions.

July 18
“Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching” (Hebrews 10:25).

Going to church helps you grow as a Believer and gives you opportunities to share God’s love with others. He develops you through the relationships you cultivate through church fellowship.

July 19
“Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you” (James 4:7).

When you submit to the Word, the devil has no choice but to leave you alone. God is honored when you choose His Word over everything else.

July 20
“Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man” (Ecclesiastes 12:13).

Your primary responsibilities are to respect, revere and obey the Lord. The root to your victory is loving God and others.

July 21
“O Give thanks unto the Lord; call upon his name: make known his deeds among the people” (Psalm 105:1).

One key to receiving from God is to continually give Him thanks for what He has already done for you. The best way to show God you appreciate Him is by being grateful. Express the goodness of God to those around you daily and watch your breakthroughs increase!

July 21
“Behold, I send an Angel before thee, to keep thee in the way, and to bring thee into the place which I have prepared” (Exodus 23:20).

When you are in God’s will, He sends angels ahead of you to guard you; therefore, don’t worry or be fearful! He has already made provisions for your safety and to keep you on the right track.

July 22
“And David enquired at the Lord, saying, Shall I pursue after this troop? shall I overtake them? And he answered him, Pursue: for thou shalt surely overtake them, and without fail recover all” (1 Samuel 30:8).

One way of responding to God’s promises is to actively pursue them. Reaching out for them is an act of faith.

July 23
“No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their righteousness is of me, saith the Lord” (Isaiah 54:17).

When we trust in God, we never have to worry about evil showing up in our lives, or even about any evil thing someone may say about us. He is our ultimate source of safety and protection.

July 24
“He sent his word, and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions” (Psalm 107:20).

Jesus Christ is the Word that God sent to us. When Christ is in us, we have healing and deliverance from trouble.

July 25
“This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success” (Joshua 1:8).

To meditate means to ponder something and roll it over in our minds; we have a choice of what we to meditate on. Listening to the world’s messages can cause us pain and frustration, but focusing on God’s Word gives us hope and joy.

July 26
“So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God” (Romans 10:17).
Constantly studying and meditating on God’s Word helps us develop a personal relationship with Him. The deeper our relationship becomes, the more our faith grows.

July 27
“And now, brethren, I commend you to God, and to the word of his grace, which is able to build you up, and to give you an inheritance among all them which are sanctified” (Acts 20:32).

When we entrust ourselves to God, we position ourselves to be strengthened by His Word. Our inheritance includes a victorious, transformed life in Christ.

July 28
“Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever” (1 Peter 1:23).

When we got saved, the Word of God was planted in our hearts as a seed and produced the harvest of being born again. The Word eventually causes us to bear spiritual fruit others can see, if we do not uproot the seed.

July 29
“Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things” (Philippians 4:8).

What we think determines what we do. Believers are called to think differently than the world; this means that when the world is focused on anger, malice, and negativity, we can focus on peace, joy, and victory.

July 30
“A double minded man is unstable in all his ways” (James 1:8).

When we go to God in prayer, we must pray in faith with no trace of doubt. Unbelief cancels our faith and prevents us from being stabilized in Christ.

July 31
“Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new” (2 Corinthians 5:17).

We receive a new beginning when we get born again. This new beginning allows us to leave behind all the mistakes and bad choices we’ve ever made: God wipes the slate clean.
