Daily Devotional

  1. Ephesians 2:10

    “For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” ‭‭ This has to be one of my favorite verses, because it tells us that there is a way to know whether one is saved or not. Of course, each one should be concerned about his own relationship with God. After stating that we are saved through grace and not through works, the Apostle Paul states that we are saved to show it to others. That is not to say that we have to brag about...
  2. James 1:12

    “Blessed is the one who perseveres under trial because, having stood the test, that person will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love him.” ‭‭ Other languages translate this verse using the word “temptation” instead of “trial”. So, the question is, what is the difference between “temptation” and “trial”? Can the two words be used as synonyms? The next verse of James 1 says that “God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does he tempt anyone...”(v.13). Therefore,...
  3. Sweet peace

    Read: Romans 2:9-10; Romans 5:1; Romans 8:5-6; Romans 12:17-21; Romans 14:19 There will be tribulation and distress for every soul of man who does evil, of the Jew first and also of the Greek, but glory and honor and peace to everyone who does good, to the Jew first and also to the Greek. Romans 2:9‭-‬10 NASB1995 Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, Romans 5:1 NASB1995 For those who are according to the flesh set their minds on...
  4. Peace I Give to You

    Read: John 14:27; John 16:33; Acts 10:34-36 Peace I leave with you; My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let your heart be troubled, nor let it be fearful. John 14:27 NASB1995 These things I have spoken to you, so that in Me you may have peace. In the world you have tribulation, but take courage; I have overcome the world.” John 16:33 NASB1995 Opening his mouth, Peter said: “ I most certainly understand now that God is not one to show partiality, but in...
  5. Peace

    Read: Psalm 29:11; Psalm 119:165; Matthew 5:9; Luke 1:79; Luke 2:14 "The Lord will give strength to His people; The Lord will bless His people with peace." Psalms 29:11 NASB1995 "You have dealt well with Your servant, O Lord , according to Your word." Psalms 119:65 NASB1995 "To give to His people the knowledge of salvation By the forgiveness of their sins, Because of the tender mercy of our God, With which the Sunrise from on high will visit us, To shine upon those who sit in darkness...
  6. Proverbs 27:17

    “As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another.” ‭‭ Other languages give this verse a negative connotation, as if to say that sharpening is painful and there is a lot of pain and anger involved. This is true especially when people meet for the first time and have to get used to one another. However, whenever I think of this verse, a different picture comes to mind. I have been married for fifteen years and have two children. In all this time, I have learned things from my wife...
  7. Down in my Heart to Stay

    Read: James 1:2-4; 1 Peter 1:3-9; 1 Peter 4:12-14 My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations; Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience. But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing. James 1:2‭-‬4 KJV "Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, To an...
  8. Sings "Joy, Joy Joy, Joy"

    Scriptures: "I will greatly rejoice in the Lord , my soul shall be joyful in my God; for he hath clothed me with the garments of salvation, he hath covered me with the robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom decketh himself with ornaments, and as a bride adorneth herself with her jewels." Isaiah 61:10 KJV "And they departed from the presence of the council, rejoicing that they were counted worthy to suffer shame for his name. And daily in the temple, and in every house, they ceased not to...
  9. Psalm 113:3

    “From the rising of the sun to the place where it sets, the name of the Lord is to be praised.” ‭‭ The interesting thing about the sun is that it rises and sets around the earth. Therefore, the name of the Lord is to be praised not just in certain areas, but all around the world. Those who have come into a relationship with Him a long time ago could testify to the fact that God was there even when they didn’t know it and He worked in ways unimagined. I have seen Him work in my life and my...
  10. Philippians 2:3-5

    What thoughts compel us to act? Verse five in this passage encourages us to have the mind of Christ in our approach to doing things. He didn’t do anything to show Himself but to show God’s power. Likewise, we are called first of all to a relationship with God in which it is clear that He takes the first place in our lives by putting others’ interests ahead of us. This does’t mean that we should ignore our own needs, but rather that we are willing to respond when a need arises, and do it...
  11. Hebrews 4:12

    “For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.” I like very much how sometimes authors use vivid pictures to describe ideas. Here, apostle Paul describes the power of the Word of God. Especially for those living at the time when the apostle Paul wrote this, a double-edged sword represents a powerful weapon. It has the power to destroy...
  12. Love verses continued

    Read: romans 5:5-8; Romans 8:28 and 35-39; Romans 12:9; Romans 13:8-10; For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8:38‭-‬39 NIV Thoughts: Go God! Praise You! I would not know what love is if not for You! You are love! Thank You for loving me!!!!!!
  13. Isaiah 41:10

    It is important to realize who is talking and to whom. This is God himself talking through the prophet Isaiah to his people. The verses which precede verse 10 make it clear that God is always in control of everything around us, and He is the only one true God, regardless of the human imagination. Whatever his most prized creation can come up with will never take place of the Creator of all things. Knowing this, it is comforting to know that He always helps, protects and rescues those...
  14. Day #26: 30 Day Bible Challenge

    Read: Matthew 26:36-75 "Jesus was curt: “You yourself said it. And that’s not all. Soon you’ll see it for yourself: The Son of Man seated at the right hand of the Mighty One, Arriving on the clouds of heaven.” At that, the Chief Priest lost his temper, ripping his robes, yelling, “He blasphemed! Why do we need witnesses to accuse him? You all heard him blaspheme! Are you going to stand for such blasphemy?” They all said, “Death! That seals his death sentence.” Then they were spitting in his...
  15. Day#24: 30 Day Bible Challenge

    Read: John 13:1-17; Matthew 26:17-35 ----Peter persisted, “You’re not going to wash my feet—ever!” Jesus said, “If I don’t wash you, you can’t be part of what I’m doing.” “Master!” said Peter. “Not only my feet, then. Wash my hands! Wash my head!” Jesus said, “If you’ve had a bath in the morning, you only need your feet washed now and you’re clean from head to toe. My concern, you understand, is holiness, not hygiene. So now you’re clean. But not every one of you.” (He knew who was betraying...
