Daily devotional for 25 July 2017 – Psalm 8:2-3

Dear brothers and sisters,

Today I have celebrated my 37th birthday. I thank God for blessing me with this new year and I ask for Gods blessings over this new year that all my hearts desires may come through.

Furthermore I want to read with you from Psalm 8:2-3 (NIV):

2 Through the praise of children and infants you have established a stronghold against your enemies, to silence the foe and the avenger. 3 When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place,

In a lot of parts of the Bible the praise we need to give to God is emphasized. Therefore do no take your faith in God easy. God loves us very much and wants to bring a lot of blessings towards you, but do not take Him for granted. He deserves more praise than we give Him or are able to give Him. Please be aware and meditate on the magnitude of all He has done and is able to do and let that be the basis of your praise and worship towards Him!

Daily devotional for 26 July 2017 – Hebrews 13:15-16

Dear brothers and sisters,

Today I want to encourage you with the words from Hebrews 13:15-16 (NIV):

15 Through Jesus, therefore, let us continually offer to God a sacrifice of praise—the fruit of lips that openly profess his name. 16 And do not forget to do good and to share with others, for with such sacrifices God is pleased.

The writer of Hebrews (Paul) makes is clear (and rightfully so, to my humble opinion) that believing in God is not a one way street where God is there for us. No, we are here to serve Him and not the other way around. This is also one of the things that is very wrong with the Word of faith movement (aka “prosperity” teachers), because they make us believe that God is there to work for us. If we want something than God will give it. Yes, He has told us to pray and receive, but with the clear addition that we have to ask for something according to His will. And we will only start asking and praying for the things we need as soon as we start becoming more serious in our faith.

Because we are here to serve God, God is entitled to receive sacrifices and praise from us. And God wants it also be that we not only praise Him directly, but also by sacrificing ourselves by doing good unto others.

Love growing in faith!

Dear brothers and sisters,

Today I want to encourage you with the words from Hebrews 13:15-16 (NIV):

15 Through Jesus, therefore, let us continually offer to God a sacrifice of praise—the fruit of lips that openly profess his name. 16 And do not forget to do good and to share with others, for with such sacrifices God is pleased.

When we really love God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit than it should be our hearts desire to continuously praise Him. Never let a moment go by to thank an praise the Lord for all He has done. And part of the way to praise Him is to do good to others and to share all you have with others.

God bless

Daily word for 12 February 2016 – Ephesians 1:3-4

Dear brothers and sisters,

Today I want to encourage you with the words from Ephesians 1:3-4 (NIV):

Praise for Spiritual Blessings in Christ

3 Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ. 4 For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight. In love

Amen! What a powerful praise this is. Our lifes our not just coincidence as God already choose us before we were born, even before earth was created. God intended in His plan for you to be here at this moment in time. Follow Gods guidance to grow into His plan for your life. Also know that God has blessed you and will continue to bless you!
