Against all hope, Abraham in hope believed and so became the father of many nations.

Romans 4:18


Ever feel surrounded by hopelessness? Its dark cloud can come from many directions. It can come from the condition of your finances. It can come from your workplace. It can come from your marriage, from your family or from your chronic bad health. It can come from bad memories you can't shake. It can come from some sinful weakness that you've been battling for years.

Prayer: 

Heavenly Father, when the devil tries to surround me with hopelessness, empower me by your gospel to pierce it. Because at the end of the day, your promises are real, and my hopelessness is not. Amen.

But now a righteousness from God, apart from law, has been made known, to which the Law and the Prophets testify. This righteousness from God comes through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe.

Romans 3:21-22


"Do you have everything you need?" That's a pretty typical question, isn't it? A parent asks their child that question as they head off to the first day of high school, or as they get into the car to head to college. That question is directed to a co-worker as they head off for a meeting or business trip.

Prayer: 

O Holy Spirit, I praise you that through the gospel you have given me Jesus' perfection. Assure me that I have all that I need to enter heaven, because of Jesus' work in my place. Amen.

If Christ is in you, your body is dead because of sin, yet your spirit is alive because of righteousness.

Romans 8:10


John Bacon was a sculptor. And he was a good one. In fact, even during Bacon’s lifetime, Great Britain recognized him as a genius. Some of the most famous places in England eagerly commissioned him to work his magic. Today his astounding sculptures live on. They continue to awe and inspire, from Oxford to Bristol Cathedral to Westminster Abbey and beyond.

John Bacon died in 1799.

Prayer: 

Lord Jesus, there are so many pressing matters in my life. Give me focus. Empower me to rivet my eyes of faith on what is truly important. Move me to fix my eyes on you. Amen.

Suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope.

Romans 5:3-4

The Difference

For many, it is the stuff of nightmares, a physical condition too horrific to contemplate, the worst of worst-case scenarios. But for a young boy by the name of Nick Vujicic [pronounced, “VOY-yitch-itch], this nightmare was real.

Nick was born with no arms and no legs. Let that sink in for a moment. He was born with no arms and no legs.

Prayer: 

Lord Jesus, as I struggle through this world, open my eyes to see my life as you see my life. Empower me to live a life that proclaims you. Amen.
