DAILY VERSE
Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ.
Philippians 1:6
DEVOTION
It’s easy to fall away from your faith if you’re not focusing on it daily and if your attempting to rely on your own strength. It is by God’s grace that we have this life, free from condemnation, yet full with salvation. We must rely on God’s strength daily to, be confident that he is fully able and intent on completing a great work in us.

DAILY VERSE
They worshiped together at the Temple each day, met in homes for the Lord’s Supper, and shared their meals with great joy and generosity—all the while praising God and enjoying the goodwill of all the people. And each day the Lord added to their fellowship those who were being saved.
Acts 2:46-47
DEVOTION
Have you noticed that our world has become so much about the “me” rather than the “we”? The success of the early Christian church can be partly attributed to the sense of community and fellowship that was promoted and experienced. Truly living Jesus’ command to “love one another” can only come when you put aside your own wants and become a servant to others.

DAILY VERSE
We walk by faith, not by appearance.
2 Cor. 5:7
DEVOTION
This world conditions us to react to things on appearance. As believers, we should react with our faith and the discernment that God gives us. Reacting to things on appearance can cause irrational decisions to be made. See the world through spiritual eyes.

DAILY VERSE
Unless the Lord builds the house, the builders labor in vain. Unless the Lord watches over the city, the guards stand watch in vain.
Psalm 127:1
DEVOTION
When building a business, it’s important to involve the Lord in all of your decisions. If you want your business to thrive, it has to be built on the rock that is Christ. Ventures built strictly on human effort are destined for rough waters.

DAILY VERSE
Blessed is the man who perseveres under trial, because when he has stood the test, he will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love him.
James 1:12
DEVOTION
Things don’t always go as we’d planned them to or hoped they would. It is in these times that true faith and character are revealed. Do you lay down and let the situation overrun your life? Or do you stand on God’s strength and face it head on? On the battlefield of trials is where one’s character is revealed.

DAILY VERSE
Giving thanks always and for everything to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Ephesians 5:20
DEVOTION
Are you thankful for everything? Do you give thanks for all that you have even if it’s not the newest, best thing? A lot of the time we can feel if our life is not overflowing with things or money that we are not blessed. There are so many things to be thankful for! Look for the good things you do have, big and small, and thank God for them.

DAILY VERSE
Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.
Romans 12:12
DEVOTION
All who are saved have a hope, hope of salvation and a life surrounded by the presence of God. When trials come our way, we should be patient and rely on God’s strength. And we should always pray, it’s our way of having a close relationship with Christ.
