Daily devotional for 14 November 2017 – Romans 8:31-34

Dear brothers and sisters,

Today I want to meditate with you on the words from Romans 8:31-34 (NIV):

More Than Conquerors

31 What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? 32 He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all—how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things? 33 Who will bring any charge against those whom God has chosen? It is God who justifies. 34 Who then is the one who condemns? No one. Christ Jesus who died—more than that, who was raised to life—is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us.

Know that God is for and with you, that no one can be against you. Trust on God to guide and protect you!

Daily devotional for 13 November 2017 – Jeremiah 10:6-7

Dear brothers and sisters,

Today I want to encourage you with the words from Jeremiah 10:6-7 (NIV):

6 No one is like you, LORD; you are great, and your name is mighty in power. 7 Who should not fear you, King of the nations? This is your due. Among all the wise leaders of the nations and in all their kingdoms, there is no one like you.

These words are very important and we should include them (or words of the same impact) in our daily prayers to God. Why? Because these 2 verses confirm and honor God to be the Almighty. No one or nothing can even come close to Him. How wonderful is it to know that God is continiously there in your life. Not because He has to, but because He wants to! Why? He loves you, never forget that!

Daily devotional for 12 November 2017 – Hebrews 4:16

Dear brothers and sisters,

Today I want to encourage you with the words from Hebrews 4:16 (NIV):

16 Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.

You can only find and receive mercy and grace if you come and seek it with God and only with God. Don’t go to other humans in your time of need (of course you can receive help from others), but expect it solely from God!

Daily devotional for 10 November 2017 – Psalm 93:3-4

Dear brothers and sisters,

Today I want to meditate with you on the words from Psalm 93:3-4 (NIV):

3 The seas have lifted up, LORD, the seas have lifted up their voice; the seas have lifted up their pounding waves. 4 Mightier than the thunder of the great waters, mightier than the breakers of the sea— the LORD on high is mighty.

I think no person will be ever able to fully describe God in a way that does fully justice to who He is simply because He is too much for us to comprehend. But what an amazing way to use the mighty ocean, because with our limited knowledge – compared to God, we can understand how powerful the ocean is. No, just imagine that Gods power is infinite times more than that!

Daily devotional for 9 November 2017 – Ephesians 1:7-8

Dear brothers and sisters,

Today I want to encourage you with the words from Ephesians 1:7-8 (NIV):

7 In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace 8 that he lavished on us. With all wisdom and understanding,

Know how amazing it is what Jesus did for you. It was by His death that you are able to be forgiven for your sin. He is also responsible for giving you wisdom and understanding that you would not have without Him!

Daily devotional for 8 November 2017 – Galatians 3:24-26

Dear brothers and sisters,

Today I want to meditate on the words from Galatians 3:24-26 (NIV):

24 So the law was our guardian until Christ came that we might be justified by faith. 25 Now that this faith has come, we are no longer under a guardian. 26 So in Christ Jesus you are all children of God through faith,

When Jesus came and died on the cross, something amazing also happened: the law was no longer our guardian. We were free from it, because now we can come before God by faith. But do remember God does want us to keep the law, but not as a way to be certain to come into heaven! No, because it is better for our lives

Daily devotional for 7 November 2017 – Proverbs 14:29

Dear brothers and sisters,

Today I want to encourage you with the words from Proverbs 14:29 (NIV):

29 Whoever is patient has great understanding, but one who is quick-tempered displays folly.

This is a lesson that God wants to learn us, because it can be easy/easier to have patient at first, when you are waiting for a certain change. But what if God chooses that the time of patience has to be longer? Therefore, I ask God that He will guide us to have the patience to wait for His timing and know that all blessings that will come are much greater than will you can imagine yourself.

Daily devotional for 6 November 2017 – 1 John 3:2

Dear brothers and sisters,

Today I want to meditate with you on the words from 1 John 3:2 (NIV):

2 Dear friends, now we are children of God, and what we will be has not yet been made known. But we know that when Christ appears, we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is.

When you are a Christian, you should not think that you will have all the answers and knowledge. Only God has this. But know that God has an exact plan for your life and if you trust Him that you will see that it will be a blessing (even the parts in your life that were hard, will make sense later on, because God uses everything for His plan with your your life)

Daily devotional for 5 November 2017 – 2 Corinthians 5:21

Dear brothers and sisters,

Today I want to encourage you with the words from 2 Corinthians 5:21 (NIV):

21 God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.

God sent Jesus to earth to die for our sins, because He needed His son to die for our sins. Why? Because He knew that His son would be and always be the only one that is without sin and always righteous before God!

Daily devotional for 4 November 2017 – 2 Samuel 22:31

Dear brothers and sisters,

Today I want to encourage you with the words from 2 Samuel 22:31 (NIV):

31 “As for God, his way is perfect: The LORD’s word is flawless; he shields all who take refuge in him.

No that there is only one that is perfection and that is God!
