Daily Devotional for 18 June 2018 – Matthew 6:21

untitled

Dear brothers and sisters,

Today I want to encourage you with the words from Matthew 6:21 (NIV):

21 For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

Ask yourself what the real treasure in your life is .. is it God, or something or someone? Don’t think that you can consider something or someone your treasure and think that you can also put God on first place. Your heart needs to be fully dedicated to God!

Daily Devotional for 17 June 2018 – Acts 3:6

untitled

Dear brothers and sisters,

Today I want to encourage you with the words from Acts 3:6 (NIV):

6 Then Peter said, “Silver or gold I do not have, but what I do have I give you. In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, walk.”

Know that God has so much more to offer, than earthly riches. They are actually nothing compared than to what God wants to give you: eternal life. But also, when still on this earth, He can heal in a way that our “modern” healthcare is unable to do. Never rely on other people, but only on God!

Dear brothers and sisters,

Today I want to encourage you with the words from Proverbs 3:9 (NIV):

9 Honor the LORD with your wealth, with the firstfruits of all your crops;

In everything we do, we need to honor God first. To give honor to God is also showing respect to Him and acknowlediging He exists and is the basis of your own life!

untitled

Dear brothers and sisters,

Today I want to encourage you with the words from Psalm 77:11 (NIV):

11 I will remember the deeds of the LORD; yes, I will remember your miracles of long ago.

In the daily devotional of today and the previous days, it becomes evident how timeless God actually is. It doesn’t matter how much times goes by God will always be the same! In all that changes over time, know that God is always the basis of everything and He will not change! Therefore you can always trust on God!

Daily Devotional for 12 June 2018 – Isaiah 46:9

untitled

Dear brothers and sisters,

Today I want to encourage you with the words from Isaiah 46:9 (NIV):

9 Remember the former things, those of long ago; I am God, and there is no other; I am God, and there is none like me.

This verse emphasizes that we should never put anything or anyone next to God or think that we combine our Christian faith with things from other beliefs. God is a jealous God and makes is very clear that there is not other!

Daily Devotional for 11 June 2018 – 1 Chronicles 16:12

12 Remember the wonders he has done, his miracles, and the judgments he pronounced,

This verse makes is it very clear that we need to learn from everything that God does in our lifes and also what is written in the Bible. By remembering all of this, it wil strengthen our faith even more.

Daily Devotional for 10 June 2018 – John 15:13

untitled

Dear brothers and sisters,

Today I want to encourage you with the words from John 15:13 (NIV):

13 Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.

I ask the Holy Spirit to change our lifes in such a way that we can have so much love, that we are even willing to lay down our lifes for our friends, when needed. Wouldn’t you give your own earthly life, if that would mean that somehow another person/friend would find God and also go to Heaven? I am not eager to die and I am definitely not saying that to help a friend that you need to lay down your life, but I believe that God wants us to develop a love for others that if it would come to it, that we are even to lay our life down for others. I believe that God had that in mind with this verse: that we learn to love others and focus how we can help and bless others. And in return you will also see how God will bless your own life!

Daily Devotional for 9 June 2018 – Isaiah 56:5

untitled

Dear brothers and sisters,

Today I want to encourage you with the words from Isaiah 56:5 (NIV):

5 to them I will give within my temple and its walls a memorial and a name better than sons and daughters; I will give them an everlasting name that will endure forever.

We are sons and daughters of God. That in itself is an amazing title to have and to be able to call yourself. But when we read this verse over and over, than we start to notice that when we go to Heaven, that God loves us so much that He will give us an ever bigger place in His heart: a name better than sons and daughters. And also that once you are in Heaven, than you are there to stay forever! Ever thought that going to Heaven wasn’t a big deal? Well, you are wrong! Let this verse be rememberance of this!

Daily Devotional for 8 June 2018 – 1 John 3:16

untitled

Dear brothers and sisters,

Today I want to meditate with you on the words from 1 John 3:16 (NIV):

16 This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers and sisters.

Jesus dying at the cross for our sins, is indeed the biggest proof of love. God loves us so much that He was prepared to let His only begotten Son die at the cross for our sins. Jesus did nothing wrong, but was put on the cross because of us. And He did it, because of His love for us!

We really need the Holy Spirit in our life to fully comprehend such a love, before we will be able to be willing to do this for someone else.

Daily Devotional for 7 June 2018 – Proverbs 10:7

untitled

Dear brothers and sisters,

Today I want to meditate with you on the words from Proverbs 10:7 (NIV):

7 The name of the righteous is used in blessings, but the name of the wicked will rot.

Do you want to receive blessings in your life? Than God tells us that we need to be righteous and certainly not wicked! Does this also mean that you are wicked when you are going through a difficult time? I don’t believe so, because even in the Bible you can read so many stories of men and women of God that were righteous, but still encountered challenges in their lifes. What you do see is that even during those challenges and after those challenges they received blessings from God.

Know that God will bless you in so many ways. One of them is that He is with you in those times of challenges as well. Do you remember that you were in financial hardship and that amount came in just in the right time? Well, that is actually a blessing. Sometimes, we want and hope that the blessing is bigger than the one that we receive at a certain moment, but if you learn to be grateful for those “smaller” blessings, than you will see more blessings coming your way, because you have put your mind open for them! And also, when you appreciate the smaller blessings, than it also shows so much gratitude towards God!
