Daily Devotionals

on October 5, 2016

Joyce Meyer was spot on for me this evening… 

“A common misconception is that all we have to do is make the decision to forgive and our job is finished, but Jesus also said, “Invoke blessings upon and pray for the happiness of those who curse you, implore God’s blessing (favor) upon those who abuse you [who revile, reproach, disparage, and high-handedly misuse you]” (Luke 6:28 AMP). In addition, Romans 12:14 says that we are to bless the people who persecute us and treat us cruelly.” – Joyce Meyer

Forgiveness is a step in the right direction, but God wants us to pray blessings and happiness upon those that mean harm and curse us… why? Because we are responsible for opening up and allowing ourselves to heal from the hurt and hang ups… this person(s) aren’t worth the unhappiness or the anger each day. God can bring us the joy we deserve to move on. Will it be better in a day? Two? A month? Probably not… but it’s a step in the right direction and that’s what we have to count on! A step, even baby steps, ahead in the direction toward obedience and toward what God wants FOR us….  God is above all the emotions of the world we can and will come into contact with…. don’t give up on what he can do for you…. be still…. listen…. read his word and let it bring healing to you!!!! 


Hillary Scott devotional ….

Come Thou Fount

What a precious song from history… so many songs have come and been remade and you can feel presence of God breathed words in them and feeling of Holy Spirit. For instance, as my friend mentioned to me the other day, so many songs we hear today, look at he book of Psalms, I bet you will see so many of the same parts in the song taken from those scriptures, from the Bible! How amazing and full of wisdom that is….

“Grace is what sets the Christ follower apart. It’s what gives us the ability to accept and love others because we know how far we’ve strayed and how much God loves us still. Let us strive to be debtors of grace, daily constrained to it because it has set us free.” – Hillary Scott

Choice is freedom...make a choice to partake in giving grace as grace is apart of our daily life from God! 


Rick Warren devotional ….

Now you can say “no!”

“Galatians 5:16 says, “So I say, let the Holy Spirit guide your lives. Then you won’t be doing what your sinful nature craves.” The Bible doesn’t say you won’t have sinful desires after you become a Christian, but it says the Holy Spirit will help you choose not to satisfy them. “

You don’t have to give in to sinful nature… we’re human, yes, we have our fleshy desires, flaws, and we will mess up, and we will then have to repent and speak with God…. perfection isn’t apart of our quality that God has for us, if we did, we would all be the same, and NOTHING would set us apart…. perfection is NOT something obtainable…. But we can have that still small voice talking to us and we can pray in those moments we feel at our weakest and say, “Help me, Father!” It only takes the one word and looking up to him…. “help!” He will be beside you immediately, you can count on that. But don’t let your timing and his timing ensure that a blessing is on our time, He has a plan for each of us, we are to be still and be patient for all in good time, He will bring them forth to us… and when he does, we can and will know it was Him!
