Devotion: Living in the Will of God

It is God all-wise, all-knowing, all-powerful, in whom we live and move, and have our being. He holds our breath in His hands. Who but God knows what is best for us?

It would be fruitless, not to mention perilous, to live life lacking the wisdom, knowledge and understanding of God's will. The Holy Spirit who proceeds from God, knows what is the will of God, and leads and guides us into all truth. If one has not accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord, such a one is spiritually dead, and in need of enlightenment. 

As we submit our wills to the will of God, we will find rest for our souls. We learn to trust Him in all life's circumstances, knowing that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to His purpose. (Romans 8:28)

What a beautiful transformation: Walking in the light of God, and seeing things from His perspective. 

God does not, will not coerce any of the free-thinking souls He created, to choose the paths that are right. We must hear and hearken to Him and walk in His ways, if we are to experience His rivers of peace and joy in our lives. Left to ourselves, we become prey to the evil one, whose desire is to move us away from enjoying sweet fellowship with the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Read how Jesus dealt with the enemy's temptations in Matthew 4:1-11. See also the temptation of Adam and Eve in the garden of Eden (Genesis Chapter 3).

We must choose to reciprocate God's love and obey Him, praying His kingdom come, His will be done, in everything. His name alone be glorified! Amen.

A Prayer For Today

Today I awoke and blessed the God of my life, who determined that I shall see the morning light. To this afternoon hour, I am still alive, so there must be a purpose yet, for me in this earthly tent. Lord speak to my heart, every waking second of the day, and even when I lay me down my head. Incline my heart to do your will. In your holy name, I pray. Amen.

Everlasting Word

The Lord, He alone is God. In Isaiah 40, God speaks comfort to His people and declares His sovereign majesty. Herein, God illustrates the everlasting nature of His Word. "The grass withers, the flower fades, but the Word of our God stands forever." (Isaiah 40:8)

A Prayer:

Holy, gracious Father, You have created all things and without You, we can do nothing. There is none to be compared with You. You alone deserve our worship. Incline our hearts to heed your words and walk in Your ways. Thank You for Your precious promises; Your comforts delight the soul. In Your holy name, we pray. Amen.

What a Faithful Savior and King
Lift up your eyes to the heavens, and look on the earth beneath...

God Will Accomplish His Purpose
Not by might, nor by power, but by My Spirit, says the Lord...

Devotion: That the Word of the Lord May Be Fulfilled

Now in the first year of Cyrus king of Persia, that the word of the Lord by the mouth of Jeremiah might be fulfilled...

God's Word is a sure Word. It can never fail, neither pass away...

Come and Drink, Live in the Fullness of God's Grace

In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, "If any man thirst, let him come unto Me, and drink. He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water." (John 7:37 & 38)

A Prayer:

Thank You Lord God for the Holy Spirit whom You have given to those who believe in You and the promise of eternal life. In a dry and thirsty land, we need You more and more. We pray that Your Word will run swiftly in all the earth and be glorified. Draw souls by Your power—to come, to drink, to live in the fullness of Your grace. In Your holy name, we pray. 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)


There is power in prayer— prayer changes things, prayer changes us.
