Devotions – Choose Your Thoughts

Choose Your Thoughts

Philippians 4:8 New Living Translation

And now, dear brothers and sisters, let me say one more thing as I close
this letter. Fix your thoughts on what is true and honorable and right.
Think about things that are pure and lovely and admirable. Think about
things that are excellent and worthy of praise.

Today ends another year. It’s time to reflect on our lives. What worked?
What didn’t work? What changes do we need to make?

Changes start in the mind. The exciting aspect of this is that we can
produce positive change by changing our thoughts. The best way to change
our thoughts is to line our thoughts up with God’s Word.

As we embrace truth, we will see it played out in our lives. Let’s prepare
ourselves for the year ahead by agreeing with God and thinking His
thoughts.

Father, I embrace Your Word and Your thoughts. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

Devotions – God Is Crazy About You!

God Is Crazy About You!

Zephaniah 3:17 New King James

” The Lord your God in your midst, The Mighty One, will save; He will
rejoice over you with gladness, He will quiet you with His love, He will
rejoice over you with singing.”

The typical doting parents are crazy about their child. God – the perfect
parent – is stable in His perfect love and over the top crazy over you!

He’s thrilled to call you His child. He delights in planning great things
for you. He enjoys blessing you. He rejoices over you and sings songs over
you.

Take a moment and take in His love with a new awareness.

Father, I embrace Your love. Help me to be aware of Your amazing love for
me. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

Devotions – Looks Can Be Deceiving

Looks Can Be Deceiving

Matthew 11:29 The Voice

Put My yoke upon your shoulders—it might appear heavy at first, but it is
perfectly fitted to your curves. Learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble
of heart. When you are yoked to Me, your weary souls will find rest.

God’s yoke may look hard, but it’s custom-made for you. It fits properly so
it won’t cause painful blisters. The best part is that God takes the
heaviest part for you. Don’t let the enemy convince you otherwise.

As you partner with God, peace will flood your heart. Don’t try to do
things on your own. Carry only what God puts upon you.

Father, I choose to partner with You. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

Devotions – God Will Be Glorified

God Will Be Glorified

Deuteronomy 8:7 New Living Translation

For the LORD your God is bringing you into a good land of flowing streams
and pools of water, with springs that gush forth in the valleys and hills.

God has great plans for you. Regardless of where you are in your journey,
God is leading you forward – to greater heights and better places.

God is faithful to His Word. He will complete that which He has begun in
your life. As others look at where you came from and where you are heading,
God will be glorified.

God will do far above what you could possibly accomplish on your own. He
adds His supernatural to your natural. Enjoy the journey!

Father, I embrace Your leading. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
