DEVOTIONS – WEDNESDAY APRIL 1, 2020

Exodus 19:8 (NIV)  And all the people responded together, “We will do everything the Lord has commanded.”  The Children of Israel did not know the true state of their hearts. Though they declared their consecration, their actions throughout their wilderness journey revealed a never-ending tendency to disobey the Lord and complain about everything. Nevertheless, the Lord led them and kept them and protected them like a father for his children listening for faith to take root and transform them into…

DEVOTIONS – TUESDAY MARCH 31, 2020

Exodus 17:6b (NIV)  So Moses struck the rock as he was told, and water gushed out as the elders look on.  Moses called that place Massah (which means “test”) because the people tested the Lord by saying, “Is the Lord here with us or not?” (vs 17:7). What comes out of your mouth in tough times? Do you question whether God is with you or not? When our emotions are devoid of feeling and our heads cannot find solutions, remember…

DEVOTIONS – MONDAY MARCH 30, 2020

Exodus 16:4a (NIV)  “Look, I’m going to rain down food from heaven for you.”  Only one month into their desert journey to the Promised Land and “the whole community of Israel complained about Moses and Aaron” (vs 2). How quickly we move from celebration and praise to murmuring and complaining! But God did not retaliate against their discontent. Instead He promised an adequate supply for all: meat in the evening and bread (manna) in the morning. God did His part…

DEVOTIONS – SATURDAY MARCH 28, 2020

Proverbs 17:22 (MSG)  A cheerful disposition is good for your health; gloom and doom leave you bone-tired.  Researchers affirm this scriptural admonition and tell us that 20 seconds of a good, hardy belly laugh is worth three minutes on the rowing machine! Kids laugh an average of 400 times a day, while adults laugh about 15 times a day. The physical body experiences a “natural recuperation” when we laugh—it is able to heal itself and return to a state of…

DEVOTIONS – THURSDAY MARCH 26, 2020

Psalm 127:1  (NLT)  Unless the Lord builds the house, its builders labor in vain. Unless the Lord watches over the city, the watchmen stand guard in vain.   What foundation do you rest your life upon? Is Jesus the center of it all? Or do you depend primarily on your own resources and abilities in the various areas of your life? If God is your source for wisdom and understanding, then you can rest in knowing that your life is…

DEVOTIONS – WEDNESDAY MARCH 25, 2020

Proverbs 13:20 (NIV)  He who walks with the wise grows wise, but a companion of fools suffers harm. Who are your life-long traveling companions? These should be the people who encourage you, speak the truth, and impart wisdom and build your faith. But unsafe people (i.e. “fools”) drain us, are needy and dependent and unstable. The person who does life with fools is a person who will eventually be impacted by the behavior of the fool. The fool is the…

DEVOTIONS – TUESDAY MARCH 24, 2020

Mark 3:14a (NIV)  (Jesus) appointed twelve—designating them apostles—that they might be with Him….  In God’s Kingdom, our personal relationship with Christ (i.e. being “with Him”) takes precedence over our service to Him. “If we want to keep going in effectiveness, we must keep coming in devotedness.”  That means learning to be alone and stand still (I Sam. 9:27). In addition, God’s people must understand the need for their spiritual leaders to spend time alone with God (Ex. 32:1; Ex. 24:12-16)…

DEVOTIONS – MONDAY MARCH 23, 2020

Matthew 11:30 (NIV)  For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.  What are the signs that we might have a burnout problem? Here are some indicators: anger, impatience, lack of compassion, and insomnia. There are more, of course. The core issue is that we must tend to our souls. Jesus clearly delineated between His type of burden and all others. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly (The Message). We must receive life…

DEVOTIONS – SATURDAY MARCH 21, 2020

Exodus 17:8, 11-12 (NIV)  While the people of Israel were still at Rephidim, the warriors of Amalek attacked them. As long as Moses held up the staff in his hand, the Israelites had the advantage. But whenever he dropped his hand, the Amalekites gained the advantage. Moses’ arms soon became so tired he could no longer hold them up. So Aaron and Hur found a stone for him to sit on. Then they stood on each side of Moses, holding…

DEVOTIONS – FRIDAY MARCH 20, 2020

Exodus 17:1-4 (NIV)  …They camped at Rephidim, but there was no water for the people to drink…Then Moses cried out to the Lord “What should I do with these people?”  The perpetual conflict between the will of man and the will of God makes the “School of Submission” one of the most difficult and necessary schools of Divine Providence. Persistent refusal to submit to the sovereignty of God involves the risk of eventual open rebellion against God. Such submission may…

DEVOTIONS – THURSDAY MARCH 19, 2020

Exodus 16:23-36  (NLT)  He told them, “This is what the Lord commanded: tomorrow will be a day of complete rest, a holy Sabbath day set apart for the Lord…”  Obedience to God is not only expressed by consecrated activity, but also by ceasing from the efforts of self; and devotion is not only expressed by serving, but also by sitting in active contemplation and quiet worship. God gives us rest from works (Heb. 3:7-4:11), and rest in devotion (Luke 10:38-42;…

DEVOTIONS – WEDNESDAY MARCH 18, 2020

Exodus 18:3 (NLT)  Then the Lord said to Moses, “Look, I’m going to rain down food from heaven for you.”  Nobody wants to go through the “School of Need,” but God leads us into places of need so we will learn how to suffer want for the glory of God (Phil. 4:12). It can take place in the realm of the material (Matt. 6:25-34; I Kings 17:2-15), or the realm of the spiritual (Psa. 42:1-2; Isa. 44:3), or the occupational…
