Daily devotional for 9 August 2017 – Isaiah 55:8-9

Dear brothers and sisters,

Today I want to meditate with you on the words from Isaiah 55:8-9 (NIV):

8 “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,” declares the LORD. 9 “As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.

These verses actually gives me some rest, because it shows that God in no way expects us to be exactly as Him. Yes, He desires and wants us to actively try to become more and more to be like Him. But He also knows that we will never be able to do so. I believe that is why He inspired these verses. The first part is to make us humble and to never think that we can think for God and know that He is thinking, because I believe we have no clue. I think it is even an insult if we even remotely think that we know his thoughts.

The second part lets us know that He does on expect of us to be exactly the same as Him, because He will always be higher in any way. Know this and make it and extra reason to go to God to for praising and worshiping Him and asking for guidance.

Have a very blessed day!

Daily word 29 April 2015 – 1 John 14-15

Daily encouraging word

Daily word for 29 April 2015

Dear brothers and sisters,

Today I want to encourage you with the words from 1 John 14-15, which says:

14 This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. 15 And if we know that he hears us–whatever we ask–we know that we have what we asked of him.

Let the Holy Spirit run through your life more and more and you will see you hearts desires change towards what God wants with your life, and not anymore the things you desire. God knows the best what is good for your life and will guide you. If you then pray in that confidence then you will see how God will give that particular thing your life.

Daily word for 26 April 2015

Dear brothers and sisters,

Today I want to encourage you with the words from 1 Corinthians 10:13, which says:

13 No temptation has seized you except what is common to man. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can stand up under it.

Know that God is always there for you! He will never allow you to be tempted more then you can handle, and when you are tempted He will make sure that you will not give in to temptation. But you constantly need to be close to God the allow HIm to protect your life this way.

Daily word 22 April 2015 – Isaiah 54:4-5

Daily encouraging word

Daily word for 22 April 2015

Dear brothers and sisters,

Today I want to encourage you with the words from Isaiah 54:4-5, which says:

4 “Do not be afraid;1 you will not suffer shame.2 Do not fear disgrace;3 you will not be humiliated. You will forget the shame of your youth4 and remember no more the reproach5 of your widowhood.6 5 For your Maker7 is your husband8— the LORD Almighty is his name– the Holy One9 of Israel is your Redeemer;10 he is called the God of all the earth.11

This verse shows that when we choose to follow God, that we should no longer be worried about what the world thinks. Don’t be afraid to be judged or shamed because of your choice to follow God. As soon as you follow Him, you can also rely on the promise that as your husband and maker He will take care of you!

Dear brothers and sisters,

Today I want to encourage you with the words from 1 Chronicles 17:20, which says:

20 “There is no one like you, O LORD, and there is no God but you,15 as we have heard with our own ears.

Know that know one or nothing can even compare to God. God is the only God there is, so never place anything or anyone higher then Him!

Daily word 11 April 2015 – Hebrews 13:1-3

Daily encouraging word

Daily word for 11 April 2015

Dear brothers and sisters,

Today I want to encourage you with the words from Hebrews 13:1-3, which says:

1 Keep on loving each other as brothers.1 2 Do not forget to entertain strangers,2 for by so doing some people have entertained angels without knowing it.3 3 Remember those in prison4 as if you were their fellow prisoners, and those who are mistreated as if you yourselves were suffering.

As Christian we should do our best to always be good to others and treat them like brothers. Just imagine that that person you did not treat right was an angel? Also if you expect help from God, then God also wants to use you to help others.

Be a blessings to others!

13 Shout for joy,1 O heavens; rejoice, O earth;2 burst into song, O mountains!3 For the LORD comforts4 his people and will have compassion5 on his afflicted ones.6
