Morning Devotion: Obedience is Pleasing to the Lord

Happy Friday... Keep the charge of the Commander of our lives. "To obey is better than sacrifice, and to heed than the fat of rams." (1 Samuel 15:22)


"At the command of the Lord the children of Israel would journey, and at the command of the Lord they would camp; as long as the cloud stayed above the tabernacle they remained encamped. Even when the cloud continued long, many days above the tabernacle, the children of Israel kept the charge of the Lord and did not journey. So it was, when the cloud was above the tabernacle a few days: according to the command of the Lord they would remain encamped, and according to the command of the Lord they would journey. So it was, when the cloud remained only from evening until morning: when the cloud was taken up in the morning, then they would journey; whether by day or by night, whenever the cloud was taken up, they would journey. Whether it was two days, a month, or a year that the cloud remained above the tabernacle, the children of Israel would remain encamped and not journey; but when it was taken up, they would journey. At the command of the Lord they remained encamped, and at the command of the Lord they journeyed; they kept the charge of the Lord, at the command of the Lord by the hand of Moses." (Numbers 9:18-23)

Morning Devotion: God's Love and Compassion


Happy Thursday...The Lord will carry you in the power of His love, all the days of your life!


A Prayer:

Thank You Heavenly Father for Your tender compassion. Your unfailing love is steadfast and amazing and cannot be fathomed with human strength. As Your servant, the Apostle Paul prayed, we ask that You grant us, according to the riches of Your glory, to be strengthened with might through Your Spirit in the inner man, so that Christ may dwell in our hearts through faith; that we, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height—to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that we may be filled with all the fullness of God. 

Now to You who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to You be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.

Morning Devotion: Jesus the Author and Finisher of Our Faith

Happy Thursday! "Looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God." (Hebrews 12:2)

Morning Devotion & Prayer



He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, "He is my refuge and my fortress; My God, in Him I will trust."

Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler and from the perilous pestilence. He shall cover you with His feathers, and under His wings you shall take refuge. His truth shall be your shield and buckler. You shall not be afraid of the terror by night, nor of the arrow that flies by day, nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness, nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday. A thousand may fall at your side, and ten thousand at your right hand, but it shall not come near you. (Psalm 91:1-7)

Morning Devotion: Go Higher in the Lord, Behold His Glory


In the Epistle of Paul the Apostle to the saints in Christ Jesus in Philippi, he "painted a picture" of true circumcision: "For we are the circumcision, who worship God in the Spirit, rejoice in Christ Jesus, and have no confidence in the flesh." (Philippians 3:3)

To emphasize this further, he stated a number of his achievements: "If anyone else thinks he may have confidence in the flesh, I more: circumcised the eighth day, of the stock of Israel, of the tribe of Benjamin, a Hebrew of the Hebrews; concerning the law, a Pharisee; concerning zeal, persecuting the church; concerning the righteousness which is in the law, blameless." (Philippians 3:4-6)

After having an encounter with God and entering into a personal relationship with His Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, the Apostle Paul reckoned, "But what things were gain to me, these I have counted loss for Christ. Yet indeed I also count all things loss for the excellence of the knowledge of Christ Jesus, my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them as rubbish, that I may gain Christ and be found in Him, not having my own righteousness, which is from the law, but that which is through faith in Christ, the righteousness which is from God by faith; that I may know Him and the power of His resurrection, and the fellowship of His sufferings, being conformed to His death, if, by any means, I may attain to the resurrection from the dead. Not that I have already attained, or am already perfected; but I press on, that I may lay hold of that for which Christ Jesus has also laid hold of me." (Philippians 3:7-12)

He continued, "Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus." (Philippians 3:13 & 14)

It is clear in the aforementioned Bible passages, that our Christian walk is one of faith working through love in Christ and thereby we have received the righteousness of God; not from the law which was a shadow of things to come, or any human effort. For Christ has fulfilled the law for us, so now we can walk in the Spirit and not fulfill the lust of the flesh.

When we hunger and thirst for the Living God, when we humble ourselves before Him, He will take us higher and deeper in the knowledge of Him. We were called with a holy, high calling; we have no righteousness of our own.

Kingdom Faith—It's Glorious


Luke 17:5 & 6
When the apostles said to the Lord, "Increase our faith," the Lord said to them, "If you have faith as a mustard seed, you can say to this mulberry tree, "Be pulled up by the roots and be planted in the sea, and it would obey you."

In Matthew 17:20, Jesus mentioned the disciples' unbelief as the principal reason they could not cure the afflicted child, and there was also a need for prayer and fasting. He said to them, "If you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, 'Move from here to here,' and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you."
 
In Matthew 14:28-31, Peter believed the word of Jesus to come to Him on water; He stepped out of the boat and did walk on water. He was doing fine until his focus became the wind around him. "And immediately Jesus stretched out His hand and caught him, and said to him, "O you of little faith, why did you doubt?"

John 11:40 Jesus at the tomb of Lazarus, said to Martha, "Did I not say to you that if you would believe you would see the glory of God?"

The Kingdom of God is like a mustard seed — Mark 4:30 & 31
Jesus uttered a parable "To what shall we liken the kingdom of God? Or with what parable shall we picture it? It is like a mustard seed which, when it is sown on the ground, is smaller than all the seeds on earth; but when it is sown, it grows up and becomes greater than all herbs, and shoots out large branches, so that the birds of the air may nest under its shade."

Hebrews 11:6 "But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him."

Mark 9:23 Jesus said to him, "If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes."

Reflection
The power of God is not manifested based on an abundance of faith, for even the smallest measure of faith can move a mountain.  In the Matthew 17 narrative, the disciples were trying to bring about a miracle, but their "doing" was not from a place of deep-rooted faith in the living God. Jesus has given power to His people, but faith is the key.

A Prayer
Lord God, help us to truly believe, so that we may experience your power in our daily lives and make an impact in the world in which we live. Remove the weeds of doubts in our minds and anoint us Lord for your service. In Jesus' name, we pray. Amen.
