Pray Together

Pray Together

DAILY VERSE

Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working.

James 5:16

DEVOTION

No matter what the issue or concern is, praying with fellow believers is very powerful. I believe God hears us on our own, but I also believe when we collectively pray for specific things it glorifies and shows our reverence for Him. Through prayer and waiting we can develop patience, reliance, and trust. To God be the glory!

Running from a Loving God

Running

DAILY VERSE

he who forms the hearts of all, who considers everything they do.

Psalm 33:15

DEVOTION

God formed the hearts of ALL people, whether they believe that or not. The hardest part for Christians is watching the world around us devolve into chaos because people are running away from a loving God who created them to be in a relationship with Him.

Blesses is the one…

Joy

DAILY VERSE

Blessed is the one whose transgressions are forgiven, whose sins are covered.

Psalm 32:1

DEVOTION

All have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23). We have been born into sin as the result of the Fall. Not one person has the keys to eternal life until he or she makes a decision to follow Jesus Christ. For those who have chosen to follow Him, the joy of eternal life is at hand.

Let Go of the Wheel

Let Go Of The Wheel

DAILY VERSE

Into your hands I commit my spirit; deliver me, Lord, my faithful God.

Psalm 31:5

DEVOTION

As we go through life taking control of every situation and crafting our own destiny, we can find life to be a bit empty. We cannot successfully navigate this life without God. It’s when we release the wheel and allow God to guide our path that we will find true purpose.

Find a Place Where You Can Be Fed

Seeding

DAILY VERSE

But since they have no root, they last only a short time. When trouble or persecution comes because of the word, they quickly fall away.

Matthew 13:21

DEVOTION

The worry today is that too many churches are only “seeker friendly”. They do a great job at getting people in the door, but they rarely stray outside of the New Testament and don’t give their congregation enough practical use of God’s word. When trials come their way they feel as if God is singling them out and their faith quickly fades.

God’s Wisdom Knows No Bounds

Wisdom

DAILY VERSE

If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you.

 James 1:5

DEVOTION

Each one of us faces moments in life where we have to make decisions that can possibly change the course of our lives. When those moments arrive it is important that we don’t act hastily, that we take these decisions before God. He will give us the wisdom we need in these times. Never leave decisions of this magnitude to men, take them to God, who’s wisdom knows no bounds.

God’s Detours Lead to the Path of Righteousness

Detour

DAILY VERSE

The LORD is my shepherd . . . He leads me in paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.

Psalm 23:1, 3

DEVOTION

God cares that you are on a “path of righteousness”. For that reason he me may pull the rug out from under you from time to time, but he’ll always break your fall. When we are going down a road, there are sometimes peaks and valleys. God sees over the peeks and to the other side of the valleys. He provides detours that we may not understandat the time, but in the end, it’s His desire that we end up on the road that leads to righteousness.
