Listen to A Word for Today

STRAIGHT FROM THE FATHER’S HAND

October 23

God is our almighty and loving Father – and the greatest sign of His love and greatness is the way He cares for those who love Him. As a true father He is concerned about every detail of His children’s lives. But why is it that we know so little of His loving care? Here is an answer for you.

ARMED FOR BATTLE

October 24

God is the Almighty God – which means that He can truly do everything. Yes, He can even transform our characters and personalities until the glorious ‘new creation’ that the Bible promises is actually visible in us and evident to everyone around us. This meditation is the testimony of someone who experienced this.

THE JUDGE IS STANDING AT THE DOOR

October 25

As we read in Psalm 145, He is ‘gracious and merciful, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love.’ But the Bible also tells us that God is a righteous God, who judges us in holy wrath. The question is – who will experience God as the merciful Father, and who will encounter Him in judgment and condemnation? Listen to the surprising answer in this meditation.

HATE AND LOVE

October 26

God loves us so much that He gave us His only Son, Jesus Christ, to die for us and save us from the power of sin. But how few people accept and return His love! Today, as never before, God’s love is rejected by men. Must this not cause God grief and sorrow? How do our hearts react to this suffering of the Godhead? This is the question put before us in this meditation.

EYES OF FAITH

October 27

God is greater than all of our problems and difficulties for He is almighty and all-powerful. When the storms arise and our cares begin to mount up, do we still believe in an almighty God? Or does our ‘head knowledge’ suddenly vanish, leaving us in doubt and despair? This meditation tells how each one of us can receive new eyes ‘eyes of faith’ and a new perspective which can change our lives, yes, even our cares and worries.

TALKING WITH GOD

October 28

God is not a distant, unapproachable deity. No, He is our Father and to have a child-like relationship with Him is the most wonderful treasure there is. This meditation will tell us how we can find this treasure, and how our poverty-stricken prayer lives can become conversations of love with the Almighty Father.

TO BE POOR IS TO BE RICH

October 29

This truth is wonderful news for all who are poor in goods, gifts, abilities or health. Are you lacking something you really need? Or are you burdened by things that your family or children need? Listen to the helpful words in this meditation.

DOES GOD REALLY LOVE ME?

October 30

God is a Father of love, who rejoices in doing good things for His children. But perhaps this is hard for you to believe right now. You are depressed and discouraged, and you wonder, “If God really loves me why does He let me suffer so much? Why doesn’t He intervene and help me?” Listen to the helpful answers in this meditation.

WHEN THE SUFFERING IS GREAT

October 31

God wants to manifest His power in everyone’s life, and use each life to bring Him glory. But perhaps you’re thinking, “How can God use me? Maybe He can use strong, healthy people, but I’m ill, weak, lonely and helpless. – And yet, you’re just the one who can experience God’s power and bring Him glory!
