DEVOTION

Have you counted every hair on your head or the number of steps you take in a day? Knowing that God has gives us confidence that He’s fully involved and cares deeply when we go through trials. Take comfort, God is with you always!

Throw Your Net!

DAILY VERSE

And Simon answered, “Master, we toiled all night and took nothing! But at your word, I will let down the nets.”

Luke 5:5

DEVOTION

Simon (Peter) was a seasoned fisherman. Like anyone who’s honed their craft, he certainly knew this was futile at this point. But because Jesus had instructed him to do so, he relented.

How many times has Jesus asked you to simply trust Him, and because you’d experienced a pattern of failure you gave up? Simon pulled up nets that were so full of fish they were nearly bursting! No matter what you’ve experienced, if Jesus asks you to continue throwing out your net, throw it! You just may pull back a miracle.

Don’t Build on Shaky Ground

DAILY VERSE

For no one can lay a foundation other than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ.

1 Corinthians 3:11

Firm-Foundation

DEVOTION

You can do nothing of substance without building it upon the Rock! You’re marriage, your family, your business… Without the counsel and guidance of the Holy Spirit, the foundation you build upon will be on shaky ground. Sew your plans with God’s guidance, build your legacy on the Lord Jesus Christ!

Held Down

DAILY VERSE

God, the Lord, is my strength; he makes my feet like the deer’s; he makes me tread on my high places.

Habakkuk 3:19

DEVOTION

If you’ve ever had to take your child in for vaccinations, you know the internal pain that causes, to see your child in pain. Sometimes you have to hold them down so they can get the injections. God does the same to us. As we wrestle through the hard times and trials placed before us, God holds us still because, in the end, these times bring about change and the good things He has in store.

Habakkuk’s name means: To wrestle and to embrace. Both at the same time.

Look to Heaven

DAILY VERSE

Why are you cast down, O my soul, and why are you in turmoil within me? Hope in God; for I shall again praise him, my salvation.

Psalm 42:5

look-up-to-heaven

DEVOTION

Every day brings with it a choice; do we focus on the things that cause us stress, or do we trust that God has everything in His control and focus on what’s to come? If we choose to focus on what’s to come (trusting on God), He will not only be glorified, but our lives will be much more fulfilling, the way He intended. Keep your gaze on high, for there is where hope is born!

God Always Comes Through

DAILY VERSE

I will remember the deeds of the Lord; yes, I will remember your wonders of old.

Psalm 77:11

i-remember-thumbnail

DEVOTION

When we’re going through seasons in the valley, it’s helpful to look back and remember all the ways God has come through for us in the past. All of those answered prayers, all of those times where you felt you were barely holding on by a thread when God swooped in and rescued you.

If you think God has forgotten you, then you have forgotten who God is.

Within Your Grasp

DAILY VERSE

But Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”

Matthew 19:26

miracle

DEVOTION

For miracles to happen we must traverse the rocky roads that lay before us. Miracles come in times of great strife, not when everything is peachy. But we must focus on one thing; When something seems impossible. When everyone around you is saying or thinking you are delusional for continuing down this path. With God, all things are possible. Your miracle is within reach!
