Memory Verse
Jesus answered, “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ 38 This is the greatest and the most important commandment. Matthew 22:37-38 (GNT)

Day 1
Jesus answered, “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ 38 This is the greatest and the most important commandment. Matthew 22:37-38 (GNT)

God created us for a love relationship with Him. Isn’t that amazing! The God of the universe; the God of Love; created us to Yada Him. Truth be told, that can be a little overwhelming. God, who knows everything about us, still loves us beyond measure. God sent His son, Jesus, to die on the cross because of His great love for us. What does He want in return? Nothing except our love. He wants us to love Him with our whole heart, soul, and mind.

  • Can you describe your relationship with God by saying that you love Him with your whole heart?
  • If the answer is, “I can’t say that”, ask the Holy Spirit to bring you into that kind of relationship.
  • Write down the prayer and keep asking the Holy Spirit to work in you.
  • God will stir your heart – write down the ways He is bringing you into a love relationship with Him.

Day 2
And now I am coming to you, and I say these things in the world so that they might have my joy in their hearts in all its fullness.
John 17:13 (GNT)

Joy! We all long for joy, but how do we obtain joy? Simply - through God. Joy is a fruit of the Holy Spirit produced only by knowing God and letting Him work in us. Through our relationship with God we dwell in His presence and focus on Him rather than our difficulties and pain. In this love relationship, God showers us with His love and this love instills a joy that only He can give into our hearts. God’s love makes our joy complete.

  • How will you intentionally develop that joyous relationship with God?
  • Identify outside influences that have robbed you of God’s joy.
  • Identify the most meaningful word from God today
  • Reword that into a prayer.
  • How will you actively respond?

Day 3
And he added, “This is the very reason I told you that no people can come to me unless the Father makes it possible for them to do so.” John 6:65

Our eternal Father, God, has given us life and love beyond measure. He wants to have a relationship with us, but we cannot seek God on our own. Because we are dead to sin, God, Himself, takes the initiative in this love relationship. He sent His son Jesus to die for us so that we could be redeemed into the family of God.

  • How have you experienced the Heavenly Father drawing your heart toward Jesus?
  • How has God spoken to you today?
  • Identify the most meaningful word from God today
  • Reword that into a prayer.
  • How will you actively respond?

Day 4
And we ourselves know and believe the love which God has for us. God is love, and those who live in love live in union with God and God lives in union with them.
1 John 4:16

God’s nature is love. He loves and knows you. He therefore knows what’s best for you. This is sometimes hard to swallow. Don’t we know what’s best for ourselves? But if we are honest and look at our past mistakes, the answer to our question is “NO”. In contrast, God is perfect and all-knowing. God’s ways are always best; His directions are always right. God’s ways are designed to bring us life and closer to Him.

  • God is Love. Why is that hard to believe?
  • How do you know God loves you?
  • Identify the most meaningful word from God today
  • Reword that into a prayer.
  • How will you actively respond?

Day 5
Jesus answered him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life; no one goes to the Father except by me.
John 14:6

Fear of our unknown future can be paralyzing. “What will we do now?”, “where will the money come from?”, “will I be healed?”…. are all questions that we fear we will ask one day. When David was seized by the Philistines, he should have been afraid, but he wasn’t. He wrote, “In God, whose word I praise, in God I trust; I will not be afraid.” How could David not be afraid? Because he knew God. He had a loving relationship with his God. Because of Jesus, we can know God too. When we have a loving relationship with God it is easier to trust that God’s ways are best. Through God’s love we are encouraged and given strength to handle whatever the future may hold.

  • How can walking intimately with God change our fear?
  • Would you rather know your future or know Jesus, The Way?
  • Identify the most meaningful word from God today
  • Reword that into a prayer.
  • How will you actively respond?
