Daily devotional for 22 October 2017 – Matthew 7:12

Dear brothers and sisters,

Today I want to encourage you with the words from Matthew 7:12 (NIV):

12 So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets.

If you truly want to life according to God’s will, then you need to treat others precisely the way you want to be treated. Don’t expect others to treat you good, if you are unwilling to do this to others.

Daily devotional for 21 October 2017 – Romans 5:7-9

Dear brothers and sisters,

Today I want to meditate on the words from Romans 5:7-9 (NIV):

7 Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous person, though for a good person someone might possibly dare to die. 8 But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. 9 Since we have now been justified by his blood, how much more shall we be saved from God’s wrath through him!

These verses show how much Jesus loves us. And if we think we can match that love? I know we can’t, because He was willing to die for us. And not just for the good ones under us, even for the sinners (which we all are). Be aware of how big the offer was that God made for you and that probably no one would do for you.

Daily devotional for 20 October 2017 – Isaiah 46:4 

Dear brothers and sisters,

Today I will meditate with you on the words from Isaiah 46:4 (NIV):

4 Even to your old age and gray hairs I am he, I am he who will sustain you. I have made you and I will carry you; I will sustain you and I will rescue you.

Although we will age and grow older and change during our life. Know that God is constant throughout your whole life. This is one of the most beautiful characteristics of God, that He is constant. He does not change over time or based on the current hype/time. In God you can always trust!

Daily devotional for 19 October 2017 – James 1:20-21

Dear brothers and sisters,

Today I want to meditate on the words from James 1:20-21 (NIV):

20 because human anger does not produce the righteousness that God desires. 21 Therefore, get rid of all moral filth and the evil that is so prevalent and humbly accept the word planted in you, which can save you.

Don’t let your emotions dictate your actions. It is easy to react out of anger, but don’t think it will produce anything good for your life. Allow the words from God to bring peace and change in your life.

Daily devotional for 18 October 2017 – 1 John 1:5

Dear brothers and sisters,

Today I want to meditate with you on the words from 1 John 1:5 (NIV):

Light and Darkness, Sin and Forgiveness

5 This is the message we have heard from him and declare to you: God is light; in him there is no darkness at all.

There is only one place to go if you want to life in the light and that is God. Don’t go looking for it anywhere else, because you won’t find it there. True happiness and release from the bondage of sin can only be obtained from God!

Daily devotional for 17 October 2017 – Psalm 71:1-3

Dear brothers and sisters,

Today I want to meditate with you on the words from Psalm 71:1-3 (NIV):

1 In you, LORD, I have taken refuge; let me never be put to shame. 2 In your righteousness, rescue me and deliver me; turn your ear to me and save me. 3 Be my rock of refuge, to which I can always go; give the command to save me, for you are my rock and my fortress.

Don’t rely on yourself or others for refuge. If you are looking for a safe place, know that God is the only safe place. Trust on God and follow Him with whole your heart.

Daily devotional for 16 October 2017 – 1 Peter 2:11-12

Dear brothers and sisters,

Today I want to meditate with you on the words from 1 Peter 2:11-12 (NIV):

Living Godly Lives in a Pagan Society

11 Dear friends, I urge you, as foreigners and exiles, to abstain from sinful desires, which wage war against your soul. 12 Live such good lives among the pagans that, though they accuse you of doing wrong, they may see your good deeds and glorify God on the day he visits us.

See how in these verses we are being told that we will be part of a non-Christian society and that we should never forget it. Although we are living in it, don’t be active part of it. This means that we should never allow ourselves to enter in the sins of the society that we life in. Make no mistake, the devil will use the society that you life in to try and make you sin. Let the Holy Spirit guide and protect you, so that you may not let sin get into your life!

Daily devotional for 14 October 2017 – Proverbs 1:10

Dear brothers and sisters,

Today I want to meditate on the words from Proverbs 1:10 (NIV):

10 My son, if sinful men entice you, do not give in to them.

I love the book of Proverbs, because it teaches us so much wisdom. In this verse the wisdom may be very logical, but if we are true to ourselves we still are tempted when some people come with ideas of which we know they are wrong / sinful, but still we entertain the thought and will go into sin. But God lets us know without any doubt, that if you are enticed, then you may never give in to it.

Daily devotional for 13 October 2017 – Colossians 2:13-15

Dear brothers and sisters,

Today I want to meditate with you on the words from Colossians 2:13-15 (NIV):

13 When you were dead in your sins and in the uncircumcision of your flesh, God made you alive with Christ. He forgave us all our sins, 14 having canceled the charge of our legal indebtedness, which stood against us and condemned us; he has taken it away, nailing it to the cross. 15 And having disarmed the powers and authorities, he made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them by the cross.

These verses describe perfectly what happened when Jesus died on the cross. It wasn’t just something for the show. No, it was so that our sins could be nailed to that same cross. Know that through His offer, we can be free from sin!

Daily devotional for 12 October 2017 – 2 Corinthians 4:6

Dear brothers and sisters,

Today I want to meditate with you on the words from 2 Corinthians 4:6 (NIV):

6 For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of God’s glory displayed in the face of Christ.

We live in world full of sin, but know that there is one way out: God! It is God that will bring lightness in the darkness of your life. Come before God and ask forgiveness for your sins and follow His commandments and you will see how His light will make your life better and bring blessings into your life!
