Daily Devotional

  1. Numbers 6:24-26

    “The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make his face shine on you and be gracious to you; the Lord turn his face toward you and give you peace.”  We always say that we are blessed when things go "right", but not when they go "wrong". We tend to interpret one thing or another as "blessing" in our own terms rather wait to see what happens in the long run. It is always easier to see after coming out of a trial how God worked, but for that, one needs patience and not be quick to say...
  2. 1 John 4:19

    "We love because he first loved us." Whenever I think about our relationship with God, the idea of marriage comes to mind. Ever since after the man"s fall, God has tried to restore the relationship he had with his most prized creation in the garden of Eden. To this end, He created a people of his own, and through this people He sent the Savior of the world. But just as everyone chose to reject God, they also chose to reject Jesus. God has done everything to show that His love to us. How...
  3. Matthew 4

    Jesus’ refusal was curt: “Beat it, Satan!” He backed his rebuke with a third quotation from Deuteronomy: “Worship the Lord your God, and only him. Serve him with absolute single-heartedness.” The Test was over. The Devil left. And in his place, angels! Angels came and took care of Jesus’ needs. From there he went all over Galilee. He used synagogues for meeting places and taught people the truth of God. God’s kingdom was his theme—that beginning right now they were under God’s government, a...
  4. Matthew 3

    While Jesus was living in the Galilean hills, John, called “the Baptizer,” was preaching in the desert country of Judea. His message was simple and austere, like his desert surroundings: “Change your life. God’s kingdom is here.” John and his message were authorized by Isaiah’s prophecy: Thunder in the desert! Prepare for God’s arrival! Make the road smooth and straight! John dressed in a camel-hair habit tied at the waist by a leather strap. He lived on a diet of locusts and wild field...
  5. Matthew 2

    They entered the house and saw the child in the arms of Mary, his mother. Overcome, they kneeled and worshiped him. Then they opened their luggage and presented gifts: gold, frankincense, myrrh. In a dream, they were warned not to report back to Herod. So they worked out another route, left the territory without being seen, and returned to their own country. Matthew 2:11‭-‬12 MSG After the scholars were gone, God’s angel showed up again in Joseph’s dream and commanded, “Get up. Take the...
  6. Matthew 1

    The birth of Jesus took place like this. His mother, Mary, was engaged to be married to Joseph. Before they came to the marriage bed, Joseph discovered she was pregnant. (It was by the Holy Spirit, but he didn’t know that.) Joseph, chagrined but noble, determined to take care of things quietly so Mary would not be disgraced. While he was trying to figure a way out, he had a dream. God’s angel spoke in the dream: “Joseph, son of David, don’t hesitate to get married. Mary’s pregnancy is...
  7. Hebrews 11:6 NIV

    "And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him." Have you ever tried to be pleasing to someone you love, especially when you know that "someone" loves you very much, and you wouldn't dare hurt him or her? At one point in this love affair you keep wondering what else you could do to prove your faithfulness to that loved one, as if everything you have done was not enough. The...
  8. Matthew 28:19 NIV

    "Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit..." A song from Matthew West depicts a conversation between the author of the song and God, where the author says, "God, why don't you do something?", and God says, "I did; I created you." Many times we want to see God work as we idly stand by and watch life unfold around us. After all, it's God's job to do as He pleases, and therefore, things are out of our...
  9. Colossians 3:1-3 NIV

    "Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things. For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God." Teaching his disciples, Jesus said at one point "Where you treasure is, the your heart is also." For someone who lives this life for here and now, the treasures are the richest of this world, which can be stolen and often times cause a lot of...
  10. Psalm27:1 NIV

    The Lord is my light and my salvation— whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life— of whom shall I be afraid? What do you do when trouble comes? Who do you turn to when everyone is against you? Another psalm says: "Some trust in chariots, others trust in horses, but we trust in the name of the Lord, our God" (Psalm 20:7). God always defends those who are His own. He is their light when it is seems to be dark around and does not let the feet stumble; His name is a strong...
  11. Luke 6:35 NIV

    "But love your enemies, do good to them, and lend to them without expecting to get anything back. Then your reward will be great, and you will be children of the Most High, because he is kind to the ungrateful and wicked." We all know that love is not expressed the same way towards everyone. We love our friends in a certain way, our children and other family another way, and our spouses still another totally different way. But how do we love our enemies? Is it even possible to do such a...
  12. UNDERSTANDING OUR MOTIVE

    Luke 11:38 - "When the Pharisee saw it, he was surprised that He had not first ceremonially washed before the meal." If we are still "doing" acts of holiness to get God to move in our lives, then we are still operating under a "law" mentally that is not faith (Galatians 3:12). The legalist thinks, 'I can GET God to heal me by confessing "by His stripes I am healed.'" The person who understands God's grace will not confess God's word with the motive of trying to GET God to heal him but will...
  13. RELEASE YOUR NET

    "You open Your hand and satisfy the desire of every living thing...And, He will fulfill the desire of those who fear Him." - Psalm 145:16, 19 NKJV. You can trust the Lord God. LAUNCH INTO THE DEEP In Luke 5, we read the story of Simon Peter fishing. He had been up all night fishing and had caught nothing. NOTHING! He, a professional fisherman, had worked all night for nothing. His friends were into fishing. He lived in a fishing village. If anyone could make a catch, surely it was Peter....
  14. The Spirit of Christ

    Really considering ‘the Spirit of Christ’ in Romans 8:9 But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his. Kind of sobering is the ‘now of any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.’ Sobering because ‘the Spirit of Christ’ is not like the spirit of the world. Not prideful, or boastful. Not of fear unto bondage again. Doesn’t seek its own but that of another. Endures...
  15. TRANSFORMED BY THE LIGHT

    "Arise, shine; For your light has come! And the glory of the Lord is risen upon you." Isaiah 60:1 Are you hungry to see an increase in the Presence and Power of the Lord at work in your life? You can daily live in the demonstration of the Spirit and power! We serve a supernatural God who performs supernatural acts, and all believers should expect demonstrations of the Spirit and power—signs, wonders, and miracles. MEDITATIONS: Believe the Lord is releasing a powerful impartation to you...
