God's Daily Promises contains daily promises from the Bible for every day of the year, presented in a “through the year” format. It focuses on life-related topics that hold great interest for everyone, topics like acceptance, brokenness, calling, comfort, crisis, decisions, doubt, endurance, giving, healing, hurts, loss, love, miracles, mistakes, planning, purpose, risk, romance, stress, temptation, tragedy, and wisdom. Imagine if every morning we could be inspired by a promise of God's Word and then live the rest of the day in expectation of God fulfilling that promise or with a new sense of confidence and trust that the promise has indeed been fulfilled. These little but powerful books (God's Daily Promises, God's Daily Promises for Leaders, God's Daily Promises for Students, God's Daily Promises for Women, God's Daily Promises for Men) will help people think throughout the day about how God cares for them and will inspire them to see how God intervenes in their lives.

Chapter OneJanuary 1
All of you should be of one mind, full of sympathy toward each other, loving one another with tender hearts and humble minds. Don't repay evil for evil. Don't retaliate when people say unkind things about you. Instead, pay them back with a blessing. That is what God wants you to do, and he will bless you for it. -1 Peter 3:8-9
Although it's good to have big goals for personal, academic, or athletic achievements, it's also important to set smaller daily goals. You can determine today to be kind toward others, to be humble, to respond gracefully even when someone takes advantage of you, to read your Bible, to say an encouraging word-these small goals bring great rewards when practiced over a lifetime. God promises to bless you for such small goals of obedience to him, for they become the building blocks of all God wants you to accomplish.
What small goals can you set for yourself today?
The Holy Spirit produces this kind offruit in our lives: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. -Galatians 5:22-23
Godly living means valuing what God values. If you want your values to be the same as God's values, you need God living in you. When you have faith in Jesus, God's Son, he promises to send his Holy Spirit to live within you. The Spirit will help you value what is truly important and then empower you to live it out.
Is God's Holy Spirit living within you? Are you allowing him to show you what is really important?
Oh, what joy for those whose disobedience is forgiven, whose sins are put out of sight. Yes, what joy for those whose record the Lord has cleared of sin. -Romans 4:7-8
If you've made a mistake and done something wrong, you may not escape the consequences of your actions. But God promises that he can make something good come out of your mistakes and sins if you let him. First confess what you've done wrong, and come clean with God and anyone else you've hurt. Then, through forgiveness and reconciliation, God can make your relationships stronger than they were before. When you mess up, confess it and watch God bring something good out of a bad situation.
Are you willing to admit your mistakes so God can bring good out of a bad situation?
you need will be all about him.
How might God meet your needs more abundantly if you changed your priorities?
Young people, it's wonderful to be young! Enjoy every minute of it. Do everything you want to do; take it all in. But remember that you must give an account to God for everything you do. -Ecclesiastes 11:9
God gives you the freedom to follow many different roads and pursue many different activities over the course of your life. He wants you to enjoy everything good that life has to offer. After all, God is the One who created this beautiful world. But he also set boundaries to keep us from abusing our freedom and experiencing the painful consequences of bad choices. Remember that you will have to answer to God for everything you do. You will not be judged for having fun, but you will be judged for enjoying sin. Not everything you do is a call from God, but everything you do is accountable to God.
Are you considering any choices that you would eliminate if you had to give an account of your actions to God right now?
Let those who are wise understand these things. Let those with discernment listen carefully. The paths of the Lord are true and right, and righteous people live by walking in them. But in those paths sinners stumble and fall. -Hosea 14:9
Each day we make many choices to follow something. We follow diets, exercise programs, and fashion trends. We follow role models, friends, and other people we admire. We spend our free time following TV shows, sports teams, and entertainment news. But your most important choice is spiritual-will you follow God? Choosing to follow God is a wise choice. He created you and knows what's best for you. When you make the choice to follow God, you can make your other choices in light of God's wisdom and vision for your life.
Who or what will you follow today?
Don't you realize that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, who lives in you and was given to you by God? You do not belong to yourself, for God bought you with a high price. So you must honor God with your body. -1 Corinthians 6:19-20
Your body was made to worship and glorify God and to fulfill the purpose for which he created you. When you do things that are not good for your body or that hurt your body, you are breaking down the very vessel God wants to use to accomplish his work in the world. God works through people, which means he must work through your body to get things done. If you let him, he promises to do great things through you.
Are you taking care of your body so God can work through you to do something special?
A prudent person foresees danger and takes precautions. The simpleton goes blindly on and suffers the consequences. -Proverbs 22:3
Planning prepares you for the ups and downs of life. The person who doesn't plan will always be caught off guard by difficult circumstances, but the person who plans ahead will be able to face difficulties with confidence. The most important plans you can make involve how you are preparing yourself for eternity. The way you live now has everything to do with how and where you will live then.
What are your plans for eternity? Are you planning to grow in your relationship with God?
"Can anyone hide from me in a secret place? Am I not everywhere in all the heavens and earth?" says the Lord. -Jeremiah 23:24
We all hide things from others. Deep in our hearts, there are things we just don't want anyone else to know. Unfortunately, we also try to hide thoughts and feelings from God. We know that it's impossible and even silly, but we do it anyway. Since God knows all the secrets of your heart, why try to hide anything from him? Be honest with God, and tell him about the struggles you have in trying to follow him and live for him. Then you will experience freedom and the full effects of his love.
Are you trying to hide something from God?
