Daily devotional for 19 November 2017 – Proverbs 21:23

Dear brothers and sisters,

Today I want to encourage you with the words from Proverbs 21:23 (NIV):

23 Those who guard their mouths and their tongues keep themselves from calamity.

I believe that God gave us the book of Proverbs to act according to Gods will, but also on top of that to make sure that we can and will do good in our lifes. Although we often think that our mouth and tongue is an asset to us, more than often it can also be the cause of our problems. Ask the Holy Spirit to guide your mouth and tongue and to speak wisely or keep silent.

Bible study on Romans – Chapter 7

Bible study on Romans

Bible study on Romans – Chapter 7

Dear brothers and sisters,

In this bible study on the 7th chapter on the book of Romans we will go through the following parts:

  • Stephan’s speech to the Sanhedrin
  • The stoning of Stephen

Stephan’s speech to the Sanhedrin

This chapter starts with the high priest asking Stephen if the charges are true. Instead of directly answering their question he tells about Moses, Abraham and Joseph and how people like that of the Sanhedrin have a long history of refusing and disobeying the Holy Spirit. And that they even killed prophets that proclaimed the coming of Jesus. When people condemn other people it will not always be righteous and fair especially when it comes to children of God. Don’t be surprised if you ever come in a situation (even be other people that can call themselves believiers)  that you can be falsely accused or even persecuted, but know that God always has the Holy Spirit with you to guide you through those oments and the victory will always be on your side!

The stoning of Stephen

And after the hearing, instead of being put to shame they just got angry. See the devil can use other people to do the wrong thing. But instead of being in despair Stephen trusted on the Holy Spirit and knew that he was going to go to heaven. And indeed instead of letting justice be done, they let the devil come in their hearts and stoned Stephen. And the most amazing thing? Instead of cursing them, Stephen asked God not to hold this sin against them before he died.

Daily devotional for 18 November 2017 – 1 Thessalonians 5:14-15

Dear brothers and sisters,

Today I want to encourage you with the words from 1 Thessalonians 5:14-15 (NIV):

14 And we urge you, brothers and sisters, warn those who are idle and disruptive, encourage the disheartened, help the weak, be patient with everyone. 15 Make sure that nobody pays back wrong for wrong, but always strive to do what is good for each other and for everyone else.

As a Christians learn to do good!

Daily devotional for 17 November 2017 – 1 Corinthians 15:54-55

Dear brothers and sisters,

Today I want to encourage you with the words from 1 Corinthians 15:54-55 (NIV):

54 When the perishable has been clothed with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality, then the saying that is written will come true: “Death has been swallowed up in victory.” 55 “Where, O death, is your victory? Where, O death, is your sting?”

Know that when you are with God, that death will never gain any victory over your life. So let nothing in your life ever believe that it will.

Daily devotional for 16 November 2017 – Isaiah 51:12

Daily devotional for 16 November 2017 – Isaiah 51:12

Dear brothers and sisters,

Today I want to meditate with you on the words from Isaiah 51:12 (NIV):

12 “I, even I, am he who comforts you. Who are you that you fear mere mortals, human beings who are but grass,

This verse shows us that we should and need to rely fully on God, because He is the one that comfort us at all times. Don’t go seeking for that comfort here on earth. Also, God tells us that regardless of the situation you are in, never fear human beings. As we are just like grass, God is always mightier that the “worst” person they can sent on your path.

I ask God to give us this strength to trust only on Him and never to fear any human being.

Daily devotional for 15 November 2017 – Luke 10:21-22

Dear brothers and sisters,

Today I want to encourage you with the words from Luke 10:21-22 (NIV):

21 At that time Jesus, full of joy through the Holy Spirit, said, “I praise you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because you have hidden these things from the wise and learned, and revealed them to little children. Yes, Father, for this is what you were pleased to do. 22 “All things have been committed to me by my Father. No one knows who the Son is except the Father, and no one knows who the Father is except the Son and those to whom the Son chooses to reveal him.”

You can never separate God and Jesus (or the Holy Spirit). Either you accept the all. Because if you decide to reject even one of them, you are actually rejecting them all.
