Daily Devotional for 13 November 2018 – 2 Kings 17:38-39

360x360-dailydevotion

Dear brothers and sisters,

Today I want to encourage you with the words from 2 Kings 17:38-39 (NIV):

38 Do not forget the covenant I have made with you, and do not worship other gods. 39 Rather, worship the LORD your God; it is he who will deliver you from the hand of all your enemies.”

God made a covenant with us. This covenant is a true blessing to all of us. But know that it also comes with you only worshipping God and not serving any false “gods”. So, also don’t depend on anything in this world.

Today I want to encourage you with the words from Titus 2:11 (NIV):

Daily Devotional for 9 November 2018 – 1 John 2:23

360x360-dailydevotion

Dear brothers and sisters,

Today I want to encourage you with the words from 1 John 2:23 (NIV):

23 No one who denies the Son has the Father; whoever acknowledges the Son has the Father also.

This is a very important principle in Christian faith. There is no possible way that you can say that God exist, but that Jesus does not. Or the other way around. They are one and the same and denying one is denying both!

Daily Devotional for 8 November 2018 – 2 Thessalonians 3:16

360x360-dailydevotion

16 Now may the Lord of peace himself give you peace at all times and in every way. The Lord be with all of you.

Amen! This past few days you have seen that the only source of real peace is God. So search only with God for real peace and you will recieve it.

Daily Devotional for 7 November 2018 – 1 Peter 5:6-8

360x360-dailydevotion

Dear brothers and sisters,

Today I want to encourage you with the words from 1 Peter 5:6-8 (NIV):

6 Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time. 7 Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you. 8 Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.

See how the world and God very much differ. In this (wicked) world we are taught to not (always) be humble. However, when you are following God, then being humble is a requirement. Why? Well, because serving God should be done with the full realization that He is the Almigthy and that He knows best. Don’t think that any accomplishment is by your own hand, but thanks to God. Even managing to get through a storm is through God and not by yourself. And see also the promise that if you are humble, then God will make sure that He will lift you up in the right time.

Furthermore, we are also told in these verses to never underestimate the enemy (the devil), because he will be active to let you fall. But if you cast all your anxieties on God, He will take care of you and the devil will have no foothold in your life. Therefore it is important to have a very consistent faith and prayer life, because the devil will waith for that moment of slacking and attack you.

Daily Devotional for 5 November 2018 – John 16:33

360x360-dailydevotion

Dear brothers and sisters,

Today I want to encourage you with the words from John 16:33 (NIV):

33 “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”

As you can read in this verse; God does not promise us a troublefree life. God is even telling us that we will encounter problems in this world. But if you want to experience peace, than there is only one solution: let your heart be for God!

Daily Devotional for 4 November 2018 – Romans 15:13

360x360-dailydevotion

Dear brothers and sisters,

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

13 May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.

Amen! Know where you need to put your trust: in God! When you learn to do this, you will see how joy and peace will come in your heart.

Daily Devotional for 3 November 2018 – John 14:27

360x360-dailydevotion

Dear brothers and sisters,

Today I want to encourage you with the words from John 14:27 (NIV):

27 Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.

Yesterday we already about the peace that comes from God! God gave it to you, so that you never have to let your heart be troubled or to be afraid. Do you feel that any of the two comes up, then you need to pray to God and ask Him to let His peace take over from a troubled mind and fear!
