Verse of the Day – Romans 10:9

“because if you confess with your lips that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.”
Romans 10:9 (NRSV)
Prodigal Thoughts: What do we confess with our lips and believe in our hearts? Do those two things match in our daily lives that others can see? Are others witnessing a Christlike example? These are some questions that are easy to ask, but can be challenging to answer. We have to take a very close look at our lives and what we confess by our lifestyles. Here is a little insight to this verse. The word heart means “the heart; mind, character, inner self, will, intention, center.” Used in this manner, believing in our hearts should reflect in our character and how we live. It is in the spiritual fruit that we bear according to Galatians 5:22-23. Please know that I’m not throwing stones or trying to condescend. These verses are often difficult to send out because it would be hypocritical to write something and ignore the Holy Spirit when I find that I need to work on the same issues. Know this. You are loved. You are wanted by God. You are welcomed to His presence whenever you seek Him out.
Prayer for today: I pray that our lives would reflect what we believe in God and through our Savior, Jesus Christ. That we would desire to allow the Holy Spirit to convict us as needed and to guide us all on the path toward holiness and Christlikeness. 
If you need prayer, please reply and I will pray for you. If you would like to talk about this verse or have questions, I’m always open for your feedback.
May the love and hope of God fill your lives…
