Daily Devotional for 15 October 2018 – Psalm 8:3-4

360x360-dailydevotion

Dear brothers and sisters,

Today I want to encourage you with the words from Psalm 8:3-4 (NIV):

3 When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, 4 what is mankind that you are mindful of them, human beings that you care for them?

When you are really let these two verses sink in, than you should start to begin and realize how great God is, but also how amazing it is that He cares for us and loves us. Because compared to God we are nothing, but still for Him we are priceless and He loves us very much!

360x360-dailydevotion

Dear brothers and sisters,

Today I want to encourage you with the words from 2 Samuel 22:29 (NIV):

Let only God be the guidance in your life and put your trust only in Him!

Daily Devotional for 12 October 2018 – Daniel 7:13-14

360x360-dailydevotion

Dear brothers and sisters,

Today I want to encourage you with the words from Daniel 7:13-14 (NIV):

13 “In my vision at night I looked, and there before me was one like a son of man, coming with the clouds of heaven. He approached the Ancient of Days and was led into his presence. 14 He was given authority, glory and sovereign power; all nations and peoples of every language worshiped him. His dominion is an everlasting dominion that will not pass away, and his kingdom is one that will never be destroyed.

Amen! Know that Jesus will come back and not just to teach again. No, He will come to bring His Kingdom. One that will never be destroyed. Know that no matter what is going on, Jesus is coming!

Daily Devotional for 11 October 2018 – Zechariah 7:9-10

360x360-dailydevotion

Dear brothers and sisters,

Today I want to encourage you with the words from Zechariah 7:9-10 (NIV):

9 “This is what the LORD Almighty said: ‘Administer true justice; show mercy and compassion to one another. 10 Do not oppress the widow or the fatherless, the foreigner or the poor. Do not plot evil against each other.’

It is sad that we live in a time, that we need to be told this! Of course, I believe that this behavior is unfortunately from all times, but that doesn’t mean that we need to accept it as normal! God wants us to administer true justice, show mercy and have compassion to one another! Just imagine that you were on the receiving end of unfair ‘justice’, you were not shown any mercy or that the other party had no compassion for you! Would you like it?

Daily Devotional for 10 October 2018 – 1 Peter 4:10

360x360-dailydevotion

Dear brothers and sisters,

Today I want to encourage you with the words from 1 Peter 4:10 (NIV):

10 Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.

God loves you very much and is so willing to bless you with gifts, but He doesn’t want you to use that gift just for your own benefit. No! God gives us gift, so that we can be a blessing to others. God gives us blessings through others! Never miss an opportunity to do good unto others!

Daily Devotional for 9 October 2018 – Luke 12:33-34

360x360-dailydevotion

Dear brothers and sisters,

Today I want to encourage you with the words from Luke 12:33-34 (NIV):

33 Sell your possessions and give to the poor. Provide purses for yourselves that will not wear out, a treasure in heaven that will never fail, where no thief comes near and no moth destroys. 34 For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

God wants us to have our heart(s) in the right place. Why does He demands this from us? Because if you truly want to serve God, then your heart needs to be fully dedicated to Him. As soon as you decide that you give a special place to earthly riches, then this means that you also put part of your heart away from Him. And you are actually relying not (fully) on Him, but also on yourself and on this world.

Daily Devotional for 8 October 2018 – Romans 14:17-19

360x360-dailydevotion

Dear brothers and sisters,

Today I want to encourage you with the words from Romans 14:17-19 (NIV):

17 For the kingdom of God is not a matter of eating and drinking, but of righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit, 18 because anyone who serves Christ in this way is pleasing to God and receives human approval. 19 Let us therefore make every effort to do what leads to peace and to mutual edification.

When we decide to serve God, then we should know that God isn’t looking for us to carry out certain rituals or conduct certain habits. Of course, God gave us these instructions in the Bible, because they are better for our lives. But if we truly want to serve God, then we need to be righteous, live in peace and joy and not from our own strength, but through the Holy Spirit!

Daily Devotional for 7 October 2018 – Hosea 6:6

360x360-dailydevotion

Dear brothers and sisters,

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

6 For I desire mercy, not sacrifice, and acknowledgment of God rather than burnt offerings.

See how God explains here that our heart is more important than rituals. Don’t think that you can persue God by rituals. No, God wants you heart to belong to Him and that have mercy. That you acknowledge that He is truly God instead of doing some ritual.

Daily Devotional for 6 October 2018 – 2 Thessalonians 1:11-12

360x360-dailydevotion

Dear brothers and sisters,

Today I want to encourage you with the words  from 2 Thessalonians 1:11-12 (NIV):

11 With this in mind, we constantly pray for you, that our God may make you worthy of his calling, and that by his power he may bring to fruition your every desire for goodness and your every deed prompted by faith. 12 We pray this so that the name of our Lord Jesus may be glorified in you, and you in him, according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ.

Amen. Not only do these 2 verses show the signifance of praying in our faith, it also shows how much God wants to to good in your life. Trust on God and see how He will be there when you need Him!
