One thought-One Scripture passage-One minute-Each day

One Minute With God

Imagine God draping His arm around your shoulders every morning, and then telling you one thing. What if He told you one thing, every day, that is true; one thing that could transform your outlook on life? And what if it only took Him one minute? That’s what "One Minute With God" is all about. Every verse in the Bible comes straight from the heart of God. Every passage contains God-breathed words meant to encourage His children (Romans 15:4). God promises that the time we spend in His Word will be worth our while: "As the rain and the snow come down from heaven, and do not return to it without watering the earth and making it bud and flourish, so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater, so is My word that goes out from My mouth: It will not return to Me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it" (Isaiah 55:10-11). How exciting! Let’s spend one minute with God together.

There is absolutely
nothing we can do
to earn God's favor.
That is humbling.

"So then it depends not on human will or exertion, but on God, who has mercy.
And what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?"
Romans 9:16, Micah 6:8 ESV

Every missed opportunity to do good
is a missed blessing for at least two people.
Let's ask God to help us seize the day--
and every good opportunity it offers.

"And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up. So then, as we have opportunity, let us do good to everyone, and especially to those who are of the household of faith."
Galatians 6:9-10 ESV

Confidence is contagious, unfortunately, so is fear.
Let's spread confidence.

"Is there any man who is fearful and fainthearted? Let him go back to his house, lest he make the heart of his fellows melt like his own."
Deuteronomy 20:8 ESV

God our strength

God, Himself, with us and in us
and all around us is our strength.

"When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you; when you walk through fire you shall not be burned, and the flame shall not consume you. For I am the Lord your God...Fear not, for I am with you."
Isaiah 43:2-3, 5 ESV

Our time on earth is but a moment,
especially when compared to eternity.
Let's honor God during our moment.

"As for man, his days are like grass; he flourishes like a flower of the field; for the wind passes over it, and it is gone, and its place knows it no more.
I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God that you may know that you have eternal life."
Psalm 103:15-16, 1 John 5:13 ESV

faith and strength

Our faith will only be as strong
as we believe our God to be.

I love you, O Lord, my strength. The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer, my God, my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold. Great is our Lord, and abundant in power.
Psalm 18:1-2, 147:5 ESV

too much faith?

It's impossible to have too much faith in God--
but it sure would be fun to try!

Yet he did not waver through unbelief regarding the promise of God, but was strengthened in his faith and gave glory to God, being fully persuaded that God had power to do what He promised.
Romans 4:20-21 NIV
