Devotions – Allow God’s Light in Your Life

Allow God’s Light in Your Life

Ephesians 5:14 The Message

Wake up from your sleep, Climb out of your coffins; Christ will show you
the light!

Is there an area of your life that is dead? Maybe it’s an area where you
have given up hope. Is there an area of sin in your life, buried so deep
that no one else knows?

God’s light exposes darkness, not to embarrass us, but to set us free.

Allow God to shine His light in your life to reveal the things that need to
change. He desires to set you free.

Father, shine Your light in my life that I may walk in greater freedom. In
Jesus’ name. Amen.

Devotions – Share The Wealth!

Share The Wealth!

Matthew 10:27 New Living Translation

What I tell you now in the darkness, shout abroad when daybreak comes. What
I whisper in your ears, shout from the housetops for all to hear!”

In your hour of darkness, God gives you insight, wisdom, encouragement, and
comfort. Others are going through similar struggles. Share, encourage, and
love; just like God has done for you.

In your quiet times with God, He gives you revelation and understanding
that empowers you to live more vibrantly. Others can benefit from that same
knowledge. Share, encourage, and love; just like God has done for you.

What the Lord has done for you, share with others. Let them know He loves
them just the same. Encourage them to follow Him. Show them the love that
you have received. Demonstrate His unconditional love.

Father, I will share the wealth of Your love and blessings. In Jesus’ name.
Amen.

Devotions – Are You Listening

Are You Listening

1 Samuel 3:10 Amplified Bible

And the Lord came and stood and called as at other times, Samuel! Samuel!
Then Samuel answered, Speak, Lord, for Your servant is listening.

Did you know that God always has something to say to you? Are you
listening?

How often do we tune other people out? At times, we’re not focused.

Some people tune others out when they think they know what they are going
to say.

Tuning God out can be something we do without realizing it. Fear can cause
us to have that little wall go up in our minds. If we don’t hear, we don’t
have to obey. What a dangerous position. We sometimes put the wall up when
we don’t want to obey. Purpose in your heart to hear His voice and follow
His leading. You won’t be sorry.

Father, I will listen to what You want to say to me. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

Devotions – God is Good

God is Good

Isaiah 40:28 New Living Translation

Have you never heard or understood? Don’t you know that the LORD is the
everlasting God, the Creator of all the earth? He never grows faint or
weary. No one can measure the depths of his understanding.

It’s so easy to believe lies about God. “I’m bothering Him,” “He must be
tired of listening to me,” “I can’t keep asking God for help,” and “He
doesn’t understand.” These are just a few of the lies that hinder our
mental processing.

How do you go to God when you entertain one of these lies? It gets harder
and harder. That’s the plan of the enemy!

Cling to the truth that God is a good God, He loves you dearly, wants the
very best for you, and He’s always right there with you desiring to help.

Father, help me to believe the truth about You, at all times. In Jesus’
name. Amen.
