Devotions – God’s Word Will Come To Pass

God’s Word Will Come To Pass

Joshua 21:45 New King James

Not a word failed of any good thing which the Lord had spoken to the house
of Israel. All came to pass.

God speaks to us in that still, small voice. He also speaks to us through
His Word. Sometimes, we receive a prophetic word. Every Word that God
speaks to us will come to pass. He stands behind His Word.

God’s Word is full of promises for us to claim; things He spoke about and
blessings He purchased for us. They are all yes and amen!

Father, thank You for all the Words You have spoken to me. I receive each
one. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

Devotions – Love Seeks The Best

Love Seeks The Best

1 Corinthians 13:4 Amplified Bible

Love endures long and is patient and kind; love never is envious nor boils
over with jealousy, is not boastful or vainglorious, does not display
itself haughtily.

Love isn’t selfish or self-fulfilling. Love seeks the best for the other
person. Love is patient when someone is slow, kind when the other person is
in a bad mood. Love rejoices in the other person’s successes, gains, and
blessings; it is never jealous. Love encourages and humbly supports.

Love is what caused God to send Jesus to the cross. Love responded with
love when He counted it joy to suffer for us.

Father, help me to love others the way You do. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

Devotions – Favoritism Hurts

Favoritism Hurts

Genesis 37:3 The Voice

Now Israel loved Joseph more than any of his other children because he came
along when he was an old man. So Israel presented Joseph with a special
robe he had made for him—a spectacularly colorful robe with long sleeves
in it.

Joseph struggled in his relationship with his brothers. They were envious
of Joseph because of their father’s favoritism. It created a lot of grief
for Joseph.

In the end, God turned it around, but I can’t help believe that God could
have accomplished His will another way. He always uses the situations we
are in and turns them around, but often we suffer needlessly.

Are you showing favoritism to anyone? If so, ask God how He feels about it.

Father, show me if I am walking in favoritism. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

Devotions – Rules For A Reason

Rules For A Reason

Deuteronomy 8:1 Amplified Bible

All the commandments which I command you this day you shall be watchful to
do, that you may live and multiply and go in and possess the land which the
Lord swore to give to your fathers.

God’s rules are for a reason. He’s not trying to limit our lives; He’s
trying to bless us and bring us into the promised land of our destiny.

The more we trust God, the easier it is to follow His ways. The more we
follow His ways the better life will go for us. Sometimes, we still go
through storms, but just imagine what it would look like if we didn’t do
things God’s way?

Father, I choose to trust You and follow Your ways for my life. In Jesus’
name. Amen.
