Make a Difference!

DAILY VERSE

Do not withhold good from those to whom it is due, when it is in your power to do it.

Proverbs 3:27


DEVOTION

Doing a good deed or paying someone a compliment is a free gift each one of us has the opportunity to give daily. You can never know how this can completely change a person’s outlook. We should always strive to do good, be kind to all and make a difference in someone’s day!

Waiting for a Way In…

DAILY VERSE

And the Lord said to Satan, “Have you considered my servant Job, that there is none like him on the earth, a blameless and upright man, who fears God and turns away from evil?”

Job 1:8


DEVOTION

If you’ve ever considered that Satan may be overlooking you for some reason, remember Job. He was considered by God Almighty to be a truly good person. That’s a tall order when it’s been said that humanity as a whole is not good at all. Never make the mistake of thinking Satan is not intimately aware of your greatest weaknesses. He will use them to trip you up and cause you to fall the second you are vulnerable. Hide God’s Word in your heart!

God will give you Strength!

DAILY VERSE

And he said, “O man greatly loved, fear not, peace be with you; be strong and of good courage.” And as he spoke to me, I was strengthened and said, “Let my lord speak, for you have strengthened me.”

Daniel 10:19


DEVOTION

As the lyrics go, “They are weak but He is strong.” We can go through life on our own strength, but that truly amounts to weakness. With God’s strength, we can face the storm, we can wade through the crashing waves, and we can survive whatever challenges life throws our way. Trust in God and He will give you the strength!

A Life to be Pitied?

DAILY VERSE

If in Christ we have hope in this life only, we are of all people most to be pitied.

1 Corinthians 15:19


DEVOTION

If we put all of our energy and all of our focus on life, as if this is all we have, we have greatly failed in our faith. Life is not about a big house, a fancy car, extravagant vacations… This life is about people. The people around us. How we can serve them and how we can convey the amazing hope we have in Jesus Christ., a life spent in eternity without tears, hunger, or pain. Be a beacon to the lost!

God Sees

treasure-chest

DAILY VERSE

As we look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen. For the things that are seen are transient, but the things that are unseen are eternal.

2 Corinthians 4:18


DEVOTION

We can get caught up in material things in this world. Imagine what it would be like if our motivations were more aimed at storing up treasure in heaven. These are the selfless acts that go unnoticed, the things you don’t normally get recognized for. But God sees these things and is greatly pleased. Would you rather be patted on the back by a colleague or friend, or would you rather unknowingly please your Father in heaven?

Your Breath…

DAILY VERSE

Then the LORD God formed a man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being.

Genesis 2:7


DEVOTION

This verse, above all, depicts what sparks and sustains us from day one of our conceptions. Whether you believe in God or not, your life begins and continues until death from this one breath. When stories of racial discrimination populate the headlines, this is the verse I refer back to. God’s breath expands and deflates every lung regardless of the color of the wrapping we live in.

Stand Firm!

unknown-4

DAILY VERSE

And I sent messengers to them, saying, “I am doing a great work and I cannot come down. Why should the work stop while I leave it and come down to you?” And they sent to me four times in this way, and I answered them in the same manner.

Nehemiah 6:3-4


DEVOTION

When God leads you to take on a task you can be assured of one thing, there will be naysayers. If God has big plans, Satan will be there in full force, attempting to knock you off course. Be strong and stand firm! If God has set this thing in motion, He will bring it to completion!
