Daily Scripture

From Handbook to Renewal

Focus: My Relationship to God—Faith, Trust, and Dependence

It is in You, Lord Jesus, that I have peace. In this world I will have tribulation, but I will be of good cheer, because You have overcome the world. (John 16:33)

I believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and by believing, I have life in His name. (John 20:31)

I want to continue in the grace of God. (Acts 13:43)

I have believed in the Lord Jesus, so that I will be saved—me and my household. (Acts 16:31)

I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first, and also to the Gentile. For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith, just as it is written: “The righteous will live by faith.” (Romans 1:16–17)

Like Abraham, I will not waver through unbelief regarding the promise of God, but I want to be strengthened in my faith and give glory to God, being fully persuaded that God is able to do what He has promised. (Romans 4:20–21)

The one who loves his brother abides in the light, and there is no cause for stumbling in him. But the one who hates his brother is in the darkness and walks in the darkness and does not know where he is going, because the darkness has blinded his eyes. (1 John 2:1011)

Daily Encouragement

Promises About God’s Principles: God Exists

Daniel 2:47: Our God of Gods

God exposes the hoaxes of spiritism and astrology when no one is able to interpret the king’s troubling dream. Through a vision, the Lord then instills within Daniel the insight and wisdom to explain the dream. Just as God had earlier displayed his power by raining down fire from heaven for Elijah (1 Kings 18), so He now demonstrates that power through Daniel’s dream interpretation. When God is at work, we dare not question His capabilities or His superiority over the earth.
