Verse Bless the Lord, you His angels,
Who excel in strength, who do His word,
Heeding the voice of His word.
Bless the Lord, all you His hosts,
You ministers of His, who do His pleasure.
Devotional Did you know that God has unfallen, righteous angels who serve Him night and day? They go on missions for him, they protect people for him and they do everything according to his beck and call.
When we ask God to send his angels to help in a certain situation, he will order them up to carry out our requests. Angels and Hosts are ministering messengers, they help God in the spiritual realm to do battle for him, to save and protect his believers.
Heavenly Father, send your angels to guard and protect over me and my family, to fight all evil that may be planned against us. In Jesus name I pray, Amen.

Verse The Lord is near to the brokenhearted
and saves the crushed in spirit.
Devotional Has someone made you feel rejected or unwanted? Jesus felt that same way and he knows how much it hurts. He has compassion for what you feel. Next time you feel alone or broken inside just know Jesus is near to you and His Spirit will refresh you.
Verse The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit.
Devotional Throughout your life you will most certainly experience a broken heart at some time. If your heart is broken because you miss somebody or somebody you really love has hurt you or any other reason, take comfort. Because the bible tells us God will heal your heart also. Psalm 147:3 says, "He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds". You can take comfort in the fact that not only is God near throughout your suffering but he will also heal your heart and the void you may feel.
Thank you God for being near us when we our spirits are crushed. In the name of Jesus. Amen.
Verse When I was in distress, I sought the Lord;
at night I stretched out untiring hands,
and I would not be comforted.
Devotional Please say a special prayer for the families of the children killed by the tornado in Oklahoma. God tells us if someone is sad from losing a loved one we should have compassion and pray for them.
Verse But you, O Lord, are a compassionate and gracious God, slow to anger, abounding in love and faithfulness.
Devotional There is a great lesson about how we should act in this bible verse. If God is compassionate, gracious, slow to anger, full of love and faithful and we are made in his image then we should act as he does. Since we are born with a sinful nature, being like Jesus takes prayer and lots of self discipline. Sometimes it takes a change of heart, especially if your dealing with people who may have hurt you in the past. All things are possible through Jesus :)

Verse Cast your cares on the LORD and he will sustain you;
he will never let the righteous fall.
Devotional Surrendering to God demonstrates love, trust and faith in Him. When God sees one of His children so completely relinquishing every aspect of their life to Him, He is able to work mightily in and through the life of that believer. God cares about every detail of our lives, and He sees every tear that is cried. He hears every prayer that is prayed and He know and never forgets anyone's name.

Verse The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament shows His handiwork.
Devotional God's handiwork is a spectacle that if we truly understand, should not only take our breath away but should inspire us to worship and praise our God. All we have to do is look at the clouds, the ocean, the birds and in the mirror to know his works are glorious.
Verse I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well.
Devotional The next time you look in the mirror remember you were made in the image of God, and He declares that you are fearfully and wonderfully made! As the lion is built for the kill, and a fish is made to swim, so am I made to Glorify God and in his likeness.
Verse Blessed are those who have regard for the weak;
the LORD delivers them in times of trouble.
Devotional Do you know somebody that is struggling with sickness? Maybe you know somebody at school or work that others pick on because they are weaker in some way. You can show regard for the weak by praying for the sick or standing up for the weak ones that may get pushed around. God will protect you in times of trouble when you have regard for the weak ones around you.
Devotional Are there times when you're afraid? Maybe of dogs, the dark, strange sounds, or bullies at school frighten you. Avoid dangerous situations as much as possible and whenever you feel afraid, talk to God about it. He is greater than anyone or anything and He always hears you.
Devotional Sometimes we need to just stop everything and be still. What a simple command, yet so terribly difficult to do in the world we live in. When we trust in God we can enjoy a calm confidence in His promise of provision because He loves us.

Just be still and know He is God today.

And best of all thank you for making turkey taste so good when eaten with friends and family.
Verse It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in man.
Devotional When we put our confidence in people we will surely be let down over time. Put your confidence in God, He will never fail you. Of course He will place people in your life you can trust but it is critical keep your confidence in God, not solely in the people themselves.
Devotional The world would have us running around doing this and that, pushing us to do more and more. Day in and day out our days are pressed with constant motion, stresses, pains, and things to do.
Amongst the daily grind of life we absolutely must take time to be still and know that He is God, our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though it may seem our world is falling apart.
Verse Because He bends down to listen, I will pray as long as I have breath!
Devotional The creator and master of all the stars, the sun, the entire universe bends down to listen when we pray. God hears your prayers. Jesus says we have not because we ask not. Have you prayed today?
Verse Commit everything you do to the Lord. Trust Him, and He will help you.

Verse Whoever of you loves life and desires to see many good days, keep your tongue from evil and your lips from telling lies.

By living according to your word.
I seek you with all my heart;
do not let me stray from your commands.

that I might not sin against you.
