Sunday Devotional (39)

Everything you do and say matters

As a Christian we need to be living so that EVERYONE can see God through us, by everything we say and do.

It’s not easy, the flesh will want to sin. But in God’s strength alone, we can over power the flesh and put God on the throne.

I pray that those that read this, will through God’s strength overcome the flesh.

There are a lot of verses telling us to be obedient to God

“If you love Me, you will keep My commandments.
John 14:15 NASB

Being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross.
Philippians 2:8 NASB

For as through the one man’s disobedience the many were made sinners, even so through the obedience of the One the many will be made righteous.
Romans 5:19 NASB

And many more but what exactly is obedience to God?

I believe as did the verses say that obedience to God is being there as soon as he calls you.

Sunday Devotional (37)

But if any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all generously and without reproach, and it will be given to him. But he must ask in faith without any doubting, for the one who doubts is like the surf of the sea, driven and tossed by the wind. For that man ought not to expect that he will receive anything from the Lord, being a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.
James 1:5‭-‬8 NASB

This verse reminds me that it’s okay to ask God for help or wisdom, He knows that we can’t do it on our own. But God also looks at the reason for us asking, is it for His Glory or our glory?

I went to a Casting Crowns a few years ago when they came out with Thrive. They talked about how we are like a tree, we need to grow our roots in God’s word before we reach out our branches to people.

If we don’t grow our Roots in God’s word then when people start questioning us we fall over because we don’t have a good root system. And I love this analogy.

You can’t help people if you don’t know God’s word. So grow your roots in God’s word so you can reach out to people.

In the Bible we see God do stuff that foretells what is going to happen, one of those cases is in Exodus 17

Behold, I will stand before you there on the rock at Horeb; and you shall strike the rock, and water will come out of it, that the people may drink.” And Moses did so in the sight of the elders of Israel.
Exodus 17:6 NASB

The rock represents Jesus getting struck once for ALL of us and our sin, the water represents Jesus’ blood poured out for ALL of us and washing away ALL of our sin.

And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.
Romans 8:28 NASB

It is comforting to know that no matter how hard the circumstance is that I am in, God as control and it will work together.

Sunday Devotional (33)

I have had trouble understanding parables, prophecies and some of Psalms and Proverbs but something that seems more simple than those I never really understood and that is the Lord’s prayer. It’s really simple but what does it actually mean? This is how someone told me what it meant:

“Pray, then, in this way: ‘Our Father who is in heaven,

By doing this we recognizing our relationship with him.

Hallowed be Your name.

We are giving God the respect He deserves.

‘Your kingdom come. Your will be done, On earth as it is in heaven.

We are putting God’s will before ours.

‘And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors.

We are asking God to forgive us and are saying that we have forgiven those who have wronged us.

‘And do not lead us into temptation, but deliver us from evil.

We are asking God to protect us from Satan and to save us from Satan’s wrongs.

[ For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.’ ]

We are letting God know that we know who He is.

Matthew 6:9‭-‬10‭, ‬12‭-‬13 NASB

Daniel also prayed in this way (Daniel 9) and he was a prayer Warrior.

I pray that this has help you understand the Lord’s Prayer better like it has me.
