DAILY VERSE

Listen to my voice in the morning, Lord. Each morning I bring my requests to you and wait expectantly.

Psalm 5:3


DEVOTION

Every day is a new day. To make every day “your best day” you must ask God to guide your steps, your thoughts, your motivations. Your best is what God wants for you. Placing your day in His hands brings with it an expectation that He will accomplish amazing things through you.

No One Deserves It

DAILY VERSE

As it is written: “None is righteous, no, not one; no one understands; no one seeks for God.

Romans 3:10-11


DEVOTION

If we sincerely got what we deserved, death would be our final sentence.  Compared to God’s original plan, we’ve fallen way short! God had hoped for a close one-on-one relationship with us, where our motivations would align with His. Unfortunately, one piece of fruit ended those hopes. It is only by God’s mercy, by His grace, that we have been restored. We should come before Him, thankful that we have been saved!

The Enemy Never Sleeps

DAILY VERSE

My child, never forget the things I have taught you. Store my commands in your heart. If you do this, you will live many years, and your life will be satisfying.

Proverbs 3:1-2


DEVOTION

Getting a college degree is a great start to developing your career path, but as many will find, there’s no substitute for practical experience. We have to read God’s word on a daily basis to develop the chops necessary to, not only share our faith (be prepared to give an answer) but to withstand Satan’s attacks. Study God’s Word often, the Enemy never sleeps!

Salt of the Earth

DAILY VERSE

“You are the salt of the earth, but if salt has lost its taste, how shall its saltiness be restored? It is no longer good for anything except to be thrown out and trampled under people’s feet.”

Matthew 5:13


DEVOTION

As professionals, we expect chefs to deliver a perfectly seasoned dish that brings delight to the tongue. Poorly seasoned food is offensive. Our message to the world has to be palatable and interesting, to draw in the curious and unsaved. To be considered good at anything we have to learn and develop our skills. As Christians, we have to bring our “A” game! 

Let Your Light Shine!

DAILY VERSE

In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.

Matthew 5:16


DEVOTION

The moon gets its source of light by reflecting the Sun’s. In a similar way, we are tasked to reflect the light of the Son. The big difference is that Jesus also works through us, giving others direct access to God’s love. Let your light shine bright!

Rebuke the Enemy

arrrows

DAILY VERSE

But if you have bitter jealousy and selfish ambition in your hearts, do not boast and be false to the truth. This is not the wisdom that comes down from above, but is earthly, unspiritual, demonic.

James 3:14-15


DEVOTION

Being able to recognize spiritual warfare is an important part of being a follower of Jesus Christ. Satan’s aim is to thwart your efforts and cause you to give up. If God has put something on your heart, be assured that His intent is for you to complete that task, whatever it is. As soon as you feel the negativity and urge to give up, rebuke Satan in Jesus name and you’ll see the negativity evaporate. Let the Holy Spirit be your guide!

Don’t let the enemy dim your day!

DAILY VERSE

Then shall your light break forth like the dawn, and your healing shall spring up speedily; your righteousness shall go before you; the glory of the Lord shall be your rear guard.

Isaiah 58:8


DEVOTION

Spiritual attacks will come and when they do, it’s important to recognize them. If you lack the motivation to pray and meditate on God’s word, chances are the enemy is attempting to steal your joy. We have the ability to rebuke these attacks in Jesus’ name. God wants us to shine like the sun, don’t let the evil one dim your day!
