Devotions

Who can you encourage today?

We all have rough days. Some of us have rough weeks, months and years. I had a rough day recently. But, between my husband and my group of girlfriends, I have an amazing support system. They lifted me up. Reminded me that I’m worth more than I think I am and pointed me to God’s word.

Who in your life needs support and encouragement? Could you text them with some encouraging words? Or, could you share your favorite Bible verse with that friend who needs it? Be a blessing to someone by focusing on them and not on yourself.

Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that. – Martin Luther King, Jr.

We live in a dark world. And, as people believe revenge is the way to solve problems, feel better and right a wrong in will only continue plunge into the abyss. But their is hope. God is both light and love. Only God can drive out the darkness and the hate for good. Sure, there are several who try to vanquish the darkness on their own, and although somewhat successful, their results are limited and short term. With God’s help we can bring both light and love into this dark world.

Never pay back evil with more evil. – Romans 12:17

The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness can never extinguish it. – 1 John 1:5

Did you know that Darkness is the absent of Light. But Light is not the absent of darkness. Darkness can’t overcome light. But light can overcome darkness. 1 John 1:5 says, “…God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.” Day or night, we are all living in God’s light or in the darkness, absent of God. I am so thankful that I was introduced to Jesus that I now live every moment in God’s light. Are you living in the Light or the Darkness?

CVS to end airbrushing in ads for its beauty products

CVS will end airbrushing in advertisements for its store-brand beauty products by 2020. Why? “The connection between the propagation of unrealistic body images and negative health effects, especially in girls and young women, has been established,” explained the company’s president.

God makes no mistakes. He has purpose in every detail. “I will praise You because I have been remarkably and wonderfully made. Your works are wonderful, and I know this very well.” (Psalm 139:14) So, why then do we let our culture tell us what is beautiful? Especially when they themselves can only attain it with Photoshop?

Did you know? About 50 Bibles are sold every minute.

That’s three thousand Bibles sold every hour! Now, if every single one of those Bibles were read for even one minute every day. Imagine the life change that God’s Word could make in those individuals lives!

All to Jesus, I surrender. All to Him I freely give.

The song, “I Surrender All” is a lot easier to sing than it is to do. Surrendering all includes your ever desire, thought, word and action. Because this is so difficult in our world full of temptation I pray this regularly:

Lord, let my thoughts be like your thoughts. Let my desires be like your desires. Let me love whom you love, like what you like and hate what you hate.

I am amazed, although I shouldn’t be, when God changes my view on something. For example, a long while ago I was hooked on a tv show that had a great story line, but was filled with inappropriate words and themes. My desire was to watch the show, but when I began to pray this prayer God changed my desire. I no longer want to watch it. And He’s been faithful to this prayer as my heart has changed to become more like His as I seek Him.

Fear God Ad_H_1200x630.jpg

We all fear something. I’m scared of snakes, alligators sharks and deep water. But the truth is, none of these things can touch me if God tells them not to. Just like myself, my fears are part of God’s creation. They listen to Him; even the deep water. And if He says, “Don’t touch that one, she’s mine,” they will obey.

God is whom I should fear. Not like I fear snakes, but with a fearful respect of His great power and strength. Knowing that He could give me my next breath or take it away. But, most of all, I should fear that I might disappoint Him.

Psalm 34:7-9 says, “The angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear him, and he delivers them.  Taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the one who takes refuge in him. Fear the Lord, you his holy people, for those who fear him lack nothing.”

You can see God from anywhere if you set your mind to love and obey Him. – AW Tozer

“Keep asking, and you will find. Keep knocking, and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and the one who searches finds, will be opened. (Matthew 7:7-8)

And for those who question if an open door is from God, compare it to His Character and His Word. God will never contradict His Character (which we learn through His interaction with those in the Bible) or His Word.

If God is for us, who can ever be against us? – Romans 8:31

Often I have to remind myself that if God has called me to do something, then nothing can stop me. It might not be easy. I will probably face trials and opposition. I don’t need to manipulate the situation to make it work. And I don’t have to sweat the details.

I do have to keep my eyes and heart set on Jesus and His word. I do have to be obedient. I do have to maintain my focus. Because, nothing can stand against us if God is for us.
