    I love it when God's Word speaks directly to my life. When I'm struggling with a normal life situation and find wisdom that speaks directly to me about it. How does He do that? I tell you, this Book IS alive and can guide us with truths that speak to our everyday life! Let's sit back and become amazed at the practical application of God's Word to life.

    "Devotion May 28 - How Long Lord".

    How long do we have to endure this situation? God calls us to prayer. This Sunday is Pentecost Sunday and Anne Graham Lotz is calling us to prayer. We look at the prophet Habakkuk, who was tormented with all the sins of his nation and asking when God was going to bring judgment. How long oh Lord will we have to wait for You to bring an end to all this sin.

    "Devotion May 26 Packing Your Bags for Heaven".
     

    Did you know every day you are putting stuff in your "bags" for your trip to heaven? Only what you take with you will go with you. What you take with you will affect you for eternity. Would it surprise you that most people are more concerned with holding on to what they cannot keep and neglecting what they can never lose? God will reward us according to what He thinks matters. It is important to think about what matters to God. This is some of the most important thinking you can do in preparation for eternity. Invest your life in the attitudes and actions in what really matters.

    Thus says the LORD, "Let not a wise man boast of his wisdom, and let not the mighty man boast of his might, let not a rich man boast of his riches; but let him who boasts boast of this, that he understands and knows Me, that I am the LORD who exercises lovingkindness, justice and righteousness on earth; for I delight in these things," declares the LORD.  --   Jeremiah 9:23-24

    How can you have a joy that endures when times get rough?

    Hebrews was written to Christians who were living through difficult days. Hebrews 11 gives us a hallmark of faith with many examples of people whose faith helped them overcome amazing difficulties. Hebrews 12 then summarizes by giving us the focus of a faith that endures.. Jesus! He had a joy that endured the cross! Let's talk about that on this lovely Thursday morning, May 21st!

    Devotion May 5 – Living in an Uncertain World
    Series: Devotions
    "Devotion May 5 - Living in an Uncertain World".

    We live in an uncertain world. We don't know what tomorrow holds. We accept risk regularly without thinking about it.  How many of us worry during the night about driving our car the next day? We could look up all the data about people dying in car wrecks and then began to fret about driving. However, there are some actions we all take to mitigate the risk. We wear seat belts. We try to drive safe and keep an eye out for the other drivers. Proverbs 1:33 says those who listen to God's wisdom will live securely and will be at ease from the dread of evil. It doesn't mean there will be no evil, but rather you have trusted in your heart that God is with you and that after you have done what you can to be wise, God will take care of the rest...   God also actually helps us when we make poor decisions when we humble ourselves before Him and He helps to straighten out our mistakes or helps us just move on past them. God loves us and knows we live in a world of uncertainty. He doesn't want us to worry. God wants us to trust in Him with all our heart, and enjoy life! This is the day the Lord has made! I will rejoice and be glad in it!!!

    We all need grace. The first issue in our lives that Jesus focuses on in Matthew 5 in the Sermon on the Mount is anger. We all have a problem with that one.  As followers of Jesus Christ we are called to "grow in the Grace of Jesus" in 2 Pet 3:18. One of the first ways you grow in grace is to acknowledge how you yourself fail to meet the standard and how you need Grace yourself. This gives you more understanding and patience with others and gives you a greater ability to be "slow to anger" toward others. You are growing in grace!

    Good Monday morning to you! Grace & Peace to you on this beautiful day, April 20th, 2020!

    The wise are humble. Why? Could it be because a wise person knows they too make mistakes and they understand their personal need for Grace? Are the foolish in their pride missing their most significant need... Grace?

    The foolish are prideful. How does pride become a barrier to what we all so desperately need.. grace for ourselves and grace toward others...

    Grace and Peace to you! In His Name!
