Mercy & Help

Isaiah 41:10 “Don’t be afraid, for I am with you. Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my victorious right hand.”

God can help you. In fact, God wants to help you and God wants to be with you. So, we move from, Can God help me? to God can help me, and then because we are convinced that God can help us, we move to, “God must help me”. Read the rest of this entry

Surplus

Isa. 35:6-7 “The lame will leap like a deer, and those who cannot speak will sing for joy! Springs will gush forth in the wilderness, and streams will water the wasteland. The parched ground will become a pool, and springs of water will satisfy the thirsty land…”

God is a God of abundance. Lack [poverty] is inconsistent with the nature of God. Check the Bible, every time God had to meet a need, He goes over and above even when it is not necessary. Read the rest of this entry

Stand On It

Josh.14:6 “…Caleb said to Joshua, “Remember what the Lord said to Moses, the man of God, about you and me…” (emphasis added)

The challenge with a lot of us is that we do not remember things that God has said to us. We do a lot of writing but when it matters most, we do not remember. This is why a lot of people are worrying and fear has such a strong grip on many lives. It is because we do not remember. Read the rest of this entry

His Example

Mark 3:32-33 “There was a crowd sitting around Jesus, and someone said, “Your mother and your brothers are outside asking for you.” Jesus replied, “Who is my mother? Who are my brothers?” Then he looked at those around him and said, “Look, these are my mother and brothers.”

Today’s scripture reference is the crux of our learning on how Jesus simplified His life. Jesus was having a meeting and they told Him that His mother and brothers were outside. Read the rest of this entry

Fully Loaded

1 Peter 1:9-10 “The reward for trusting him will be the salvation of your souls. This salvation was something even the prophets wanted to know more about when they prophesied about this gracious salvation prepared for you.”

I used to have what I would describe as a carnal love for cars until God sanctified me. My wife, on the other hand, does not admire cars that much. However, Read the rest of this entry

Standpoint

Luke 18:1 & 8 “One day Jesus told his disciples a story to show that they should always pray and never give up… I tell you, he will grant justice to them quickly! But when the Son of Man returns, how many will he find on the earth who have faith?”

Before you delve into today’s devotional, I want you to spend some time studying Luke 8:1-8. I pray that you will be one of those that Jesus will find who have not given up on their prayer points. Read the rest of this entry

Hessed

Ps.63:3 (NKJV) “Because Your lovingkindness is better than life, My lips shall praise You.”

The other sheepdog – mercy is the Hebrew word Hesed [when the person from whom I have a right to expect nothing, gives me everything]. Theologians tell us that it is one of the richest words in Hebrew. Read the rest of this entry

Get Wisdom

Philip4:6 “Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. 7 Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.

Relax! God is God and you are not. If you carry the whole world on your head what is left for Jesus to carry? That is His job not yours! The man who discovered the concept of stress was a medical scientist. Read the rest of this entry

Love’s Sacrifice

John 3:16 “For this is how God loved the world: He gave[a] his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life.”

I urge you to consistently put the love sacrifice to God before you and just meditate on it. God gave His one and only Son just for you. Not to come and preach and teach us along but to give His life in exchange for ours. Read the rest of this entry

Take Root

Philip.1:20 “For I fully expect and hope that I will never be ashamed, but that I will continue to be bold for Christ… And I trust that my life will bring honor to Christ, whether I live or die.”

 

Let us remember our commitment from yesterday and follow through on our commitment to join a Life Group, resume a Life Group, encourage and Read the rest of this entry
