Daily Devotional for 13 December 2017 – Proverbs 3:5-6

Dear brothers and sisters,

Today I want to encourage you with the words from Proverbs 3:5-6 (NIV):

5 Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; 6 in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.

Do not consider your own understanding to be flawless, because we are not God and do not know everything (or the impact of things). So it is important to trust on God and be guided by the Holy Spirit.

Daily Devotional for 12 December 2017 – 1 Peter 2:9-10

Dear brothers and sisters,

Today I want to encourage you with the words from 1 Peter 2:9-10 (NIV):

9 But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light. 10 Once you were not a people, but now you are the people of God; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy.

Know that through God’s mercy you received life. Thank God for His mercy and His love.

Daily Devotional for 11 December 2017 – 1 Corinthians 6:11

Dear brothers and sisters,

Today I want to encourage you with the words from 1 Corinthians 6:11 (NIV):

11 And that is what some of you were. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.

Only by the Lord Jesus Christ your life is justified. No matter how good you have lived your life on earth, it is only by Jesus that you can come before God by faith. Accepting Jesus as the Son of God and also accepting the Holy Spirit is vital if you want to really follow God, but also if you want to enter Heaven.

 

Daily Devotional for 10 December 2017 – Zecheriah 8:16-17

Daily Devotional for 10 December 2017 – Zecheriah 8:16-17

Dear brothers and sisters,

Today I want to meditate with you on the words from Zechariah 8:16-17 (NIV):

16 These are the things you are to do: Speak the truth to each other, and render true and sound judgment in your courts; 17 do not plot evil against each other, and do not love to swear falsely. I hate all this,” declares the LORD.

With being a child of God also come responsibilities. Don’t think that it enough to just give your heart to Him. No, you also have to start living your life according to His will. This also means that you love to speak the truth and hate lies. Trust God on guiding and blessing you when you abide to this.

Daily Devotional for 9 December 2017 – Matthew 28:18

Dear brothers and sisters,

Today I want to meditate on the words from Matthew 28:18 (NIV):

18 Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.

In this verse Jesus makes it know without any doubt, that he received all His authority from Heaven. And it also shows why you need to follow Jesus, because God gave Him ALL authority!

Daily Devotional for 8 December 2017 – Romans 5:5-6

Dear brothers and sisters,

Today I want to encourage with the words from Romans 5:5-6 (NIV):

5 And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us. 6 You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly.

Jesus died for us at the cross, so we could base our expectations on hope on God and to be no longer depended on our own works.

 

Daily Devotional for 7 December 2017 – Isaiah 40:6-8

Daily Devotional for 7 December 2017 – Isaiah 40:6-8

Dear brothers and sisters,

Today I want to meditate with you on the words from Isaiah 40:6-8 (NIV):

6 A voice says, “Cry out.” And I said, “What shall I cry?” “All people are like grass, and all their faithfulness is like the flowers of the field. 7 The grass withers and the flowers fall, because the breath of the LORD blows on them. Surely the people are grass. 8 The grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of our God endures forever.”

God makes a comparison between grass and flowers. God wants us to be like the grass, because it is not affected by the changes (of weather), where you will see with flowers that they are. When you accept God and come to faith than you need a faith that is not altered by the changes in or circumstances.

Daily Devotional for 5 December 2017 – Hebrews 2:9

Dear brothers and sisters,

Today I want to encourage you with the words from Hebrews 2:9 (NIV):

9 But we do see Jesus, who was made lower than the angels for a little while, now crowned with glory and honor because he suffered death, so that by the grace of God he might taste death for everyone.

Again God lets us know the fact that His Son came to earth to die for our sin, so we could be forgiven and enter Heaven based on grace! Never forget the amazin and large sacrificce was willingly to make for you!

Daily Devotional for 4 December 2017 – Psalm 116:1-2

Dear brothers and sisters,

Today I want to encourage you with the words from Psalm 116:1-2 (NIV):

1 I love the LORD, for he heard my voice; he heard my cry for mercy. 2 Because he turned his ear to me, I will call on him as long as I live.

Even when you can be at your lowest point and are feeling hurt and alone, know that God has never left you alone. Don’t let your own feelings distort the fact that God is always with you! Know that God also hears you when you cry for mercy.
