Sunday—Praise God for His creation– In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. A He stretches out the north over empty space and hangs the earth on nothing. B He created the heavens and stretched them out, He spread out the earth and that which comes out of it, He gives breath to the people on it and spirit to those who walk in it. C He stretches out the north over empty space And hangs the earth on nothing. (Job 26:7) In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. (Genesis 1:1) The Lord by wisdom founded the earth, By understanding He established the heavens. (Proverbs 3:19)
Monday—Who has measured the waters in the hollow of His hand,
And marked off the heavens by the span,
And calculated the dust of the earth by the measure,
And weighed the mountains in a balance
And the hills in a pair of scales?
Do you not know? Have you not heard?
Has it not been declared to you from the beginning?
Have you not understood from the foundations of the earth?
It is He who sits above the circle of the earth,
And its inhabitants are like grasshoppers,
Who stretches out the heavens like a curtain
And spreads them out like a tent to dwell in. (Isaiah 40:12, 21-22)
Thus says God the Lord,
He Who created the heavens and stretched them out,
He Who spread out the earth and that which comes out of it,
He Who gives breath to the people on it
And spirit to those who walk in it. (Isaiah 42:5)
Tuesday—Praise God for the Gospel–The gospel, that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures and that He was buried, and that He was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures D Jesus said “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.E God made Jesus Christ who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.F We need a Savior for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,G The wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.H God demonstrated His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.HA If you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved; for “Whoever will call on the name of the Lord will be saved.”.I
Wednesday—Praise God for His goodness– A person in Christ is a new creature; the old things passed away; and new things have come.J Praise the Lord, for the Lord is good;K The Lord your God is with you wherever you go.L You are a temple of God and the Spirit of God dwells in you. M But He gives a greater grace. N Those who wait for the Lord will gain new strength; they will mount up with wings like eagles, they will run and not get tired, they will walk and not become weary. O The Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we shall always be with the Lord.P
Thursday–A Psalm of David. Psalm 23:… 1The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want. 2 He makes me lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside quiet waters. 3 He restores my soul; He guides me in the paths of righteousness For His name’s sake. 4 Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I fear no evil, for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me. 5 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You have anointed my head with oil; My cup overflows. 6 Surely goodness and lovingkindness will follow me all the days of my life, And I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever. (NASB)
