Friday August 18 Devotional
Job 28: 12,28 But where shall wisdom be found? and where is the place of understanding?
And unto man he said, Behold, the fear of the Lord, that is wisdom; and to depart from evil is understanding.
Our grand children play question and answer with us to no end. That’s how they learn, right? New studies, new games, new behaviors are learned in this way. God provides for us too. If / when you want wisdom and understanding for life – it’s right here.
Thought: Why search and search through the false wisdom of man, when the answer is right here
Oh God, help me follow your way as my source of wisdom.
Thursday August 17 Devotional
Job 27: 8-9 For what hope have the godless when they are cut off, when God takes away their life? Does God listen to their cry when distress comes upon them?
One more reason to believe in Jesus for He is not willing that any should perish but that all would come to repentance – and then faith in Jesus. It’s a serious matter. Trust in Christ today.
Thought: Do your business with God BEFORE it’s too late.
Oh God, help to make that step of faith in you. All of eternity is at stake.
Wednesday August 16 Devotional
Psalm 28:7 (KJV) The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusted in him, and I am helped: therefore my heart greatly rejoiceth; and with my song will I praise him.
On a cold rainy morning, spirits sometimes dip, yet the Psalms tell us to put our trust in God and then sing in Praise to Him. Can you do that today? Can you trust Him to handle your challenge, then raise your voice with our Psalms and praise the Lord with your whole heart and voice?
Thought: It takes a deliberate act of your will to trust God and an act of your voice to praise.
Oh God, help me trust in you for you are the God of my Salvation, in whom will I fear?
Tuesday August 15 Devotional
Revelation 1:3 (KJV) Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand.
What more of a hint do you need? As the last times reach His gate, what choice will you make for Him? Get into His Word while you are still able to do so. You will get a blessing.
Thought: What will you do for His Kingdom while there is still a moment to gain?
Oh God, help me to use these last days for you.
Saturday August 12 Devotional
Psalm 37:23 (KJV) The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord: and he delighteth in his way. Good direction for life. How often do we cast about, seek a new way, a new truth, without the advice and will of God? When you pray first, inquire of the Lord and seek His will for your life, then you can rest in Him and His path for your life. You’ll also find Peace and calm.
Thought: Trust in the Lord with all your heart and He will delight in you.
Oh God, please help my steps and my desires be in step with Your will for my life.
Friday August 11 Devotional
1 John 5:19 (KJV) And we know that we are of God, and the whole world lieth in wickedness.
Is this clear enough for you? American football is back in the news. One team tries to score more points than the other through either running or passing the ball forward. It isn’t an easy task as the players are highly trained professionals. In our spiritual life, the two teams are set. The entire world against those who stand with Christ as Christians. The big difference is that the goal is eternal life with Jesus or the world which, without Christ, is forever in hell.
Thought: Strive to be a player on Christ’ team for in His strength we can overcome.
Oh God, help me to know and rely on your strength for the victory is through Jesus.
Tuesday August 8 Devotional
1 John 1:5 (KJV) This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.
“There is so much darkness in the world….” Have you ever heard that quote? Such a tired cry. We need not fear or be discouraged because we as Christians have the answer living within us. Indeed God is Light and can still shatter darkness to save a lost soul. How can you live your life in order to reflect Him to others?
Thought: We have the way, the light. Why not share Him with one in darkness today.
Oh God, help me to shine so bright, that others will see Him through my life.
