DAILY VERSE

And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that having all sufficiency in all things at all times, you may abound in every good work.

2 Corinthians 9:8 ESV


DEVOTION

God supplies each of us with unique talents, not so we can toil in the dark, but so we can utilize them in the light to His glory. What unique talents has God given you? God relies on us to use what we have given. If we do, He will multiply them and bless us. Use your God-given talents to His glory!

Fighting For You

DAILY VERSE

And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.

Colossians 3:17


DEVOTION

God IS with us! Though we cannot see the army of angels that surround us and fight for us daily, the spiritual realm is active. Knowing that we should strive to give our best effort in all that we do to work in harmony with God’s plan for us. 

Take this Cup…

DAILY VERSE

And going a little farther he fell on his face and prayed, saying, “My Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me; nevertheless, not as I will, but as you will.”

Matthew 26:39


DEVOTION

We’ve all been there. Faced with seemingly insurmountable circumstances, we call out to God for an end or at least a shortcut around them. Many people have created their own shortcuts around God’s plans that sometimes include going through the fire of trials. They’re meant to strengthen our faith and increase our reliance on God. So those who bypass this opportunity miss out on something, diverting from God’s path. Though it may be like looking into the mouth of a lion, God will show you amazing things as you follow His plan and grow in your faith!

A Stronghold in Every Storm

DAILY VERSE

For you have been a stronghold to the poor, a stronghold to the needy in his distress, a shelter from the storm and a shade from the heat; for the breath of the ruthless is like a storm against a wall.

Isaiah 25:4


DEVOTION

No matter what the storm may bring, I will be left standing because of your great love for me. The waves have threatened to pull me under, yet you’ve always held my head gently above the rising waters. Jesus Christ is our stronghold in every storm! 

God is with you through it all!

DAILY VERSE

We have this as a sure and steadfast anchor of the soul, a hope that enters into the inner place behind the curtain…

Hebrews 6:19


DEVOTION

This verse makes me think of the lyrics to “Blessed Assurance”. We can be 100% confident that, in all things, Jesus Christ walks with us! When good times make us “feel” as if we’re blessed. When hard times make us “feel” as if God is far off. God does not operate on human terms. He is HERE through the good and the bad equally. Take comfort, you have a “blessed assurance” that God is with you through it all!

The Chosen Path

DAILY VERSE

When I thought, “My foot slips,” your steadfast love, O Lord, held me up.

Psalm 94:18


DEVOTION

We all slip. Walking this walk of faith is the result of an ever-transforming heart, but sometimes our old nature can cause us to stumble. Thankfully, Jesus walks with us. He’s there to help us course-correct and veer back onto the path God has chosen for us. 

Stand Firm!

DAILY VERSE

Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.

1 Corinthians 15:58


DEVOTION

Imagine being a knight; putting on the chainmail, hoisting on your heavy armor to go out and protect the castle daily. When putting on your spiritual armor seems to become a daunting task, remember the stripes that Jesus endured to set you free. Stand firm in your faith, show courage in the face of the trials that may be weighing you down!
