Daily Encouragement: Year 1, Day 71

From Handbook to Renewal

The Attributes of God

You have chosen me as Your witness and servant so that I may know and believe You and understand that You are the Lord. Before You no God was formed, nor will there be one after You. (Isaiah 43:10)

The Lord God is the Alpha and the Omega, who is, and who was, and who is to come, the Almighty. (Revelation 1:8)

The Works of God 

Blessed be the Lord, the God of Israel, because He has visited us and has redeemed His people. He has raised up a horn of salvation for us in the house of His servant David (as He spoke by the mouth of His holy prophets of long ago), salvation from our enemies and from the hand of all who hate us—to show mercy to our fathers and to remember His holy covenant, the oath He swore to our father Abraham, to rescue us from the hand of our enemies, and to enable us to serve Him without fear in holiness and righteousness before Him all our days. (Luke 1:68–75)

The Scriptures predicted that the Christ should suffer and rise from the dead on the third day, and that repentance and forgiveness of sins should be preached in His name to all nations, beginning at Jerusalem. (Luke 24:46–47)

My Relationship to God

God will keep me strong to the end, so that I will be blameless on the day of our Lord Jesus Christ. God is faithful, through whom I was called into fellowship with His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord. (1 Corinthians 1:8–9)

Thanks be to God, who always leads us in triumph in Christ and through us spreads everywhere the fragrance of the knowledge of Him. (2 Corinthians 2:14)

The Character I Want to Cultivate 

I will rejoice in hope, persevere in affliction, and continue steadfastly in prayer. (Romans 12:12)

I will fight the good fight of faith and lay hold of the eternal life to which I was called when I made the good confession in the presence of many witnesses. In the sight of God, who gives life to all things, and of Christ Jesus, who testified the good confession before Pontius Pilate, I want to keep this command without blemish or reproach until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ, which God will bring about in His own time. (1 Timothy 6:12–15a)

My Relationship to Others 

Children should obey their parents in the Lord, for this is right. “Honor your father and mother”—which is the first commandment with a promise—”that it may go well with you, and that you may live long on the earth.” (Ephesians 6:1–3)

Children should obey their parents in everything, for this is well-pleasing to the Lord. (Colossians 3:20)
