DEVOTIONS – SATURDAY JULY 20, 2019

Matthew 13:8 (MSG)  Some  (seeds)  fell on good earth,  and produced a harvest beyond his wildest dreams.  The hearer with good soil values God’s Word  (Job 23:12)  and delights in it  (Jer. 15:16).   He does not ignore God’s word  (Ezek 33:30-33)  or rebel against it  (Psalm 107:11).  He is open minded  (Acts 17:11)  and willing to commit himself to the truth (John 7:17).  He does not cling to his own opinions  (Mark 7:13).  He has a teachable heart  (Acts…

DEVOTIONS – FRIDAY JULY 19, 2019

Matthew 13:7 (MSG)  Some  (seeds)  fell in the weeds;  as it came up,  it was strangled by the weeds.  Two crops strive for mastery.  The thorns choke the Word  (vs. 19)  “with anxieties”  (Luke 8:14 -Worrell)  and  “worries and money”  (Luke 8:14 – Moffat).  “Other things creep in and choke the message out”  (Mark 4:19 – Goodspeed).  The cares of life are remedied by re-evaluating the spiritual versus material values  (Luke 12:15).  The riches of life that snare us can…

DEVOTIONS – THURSDAY JULY 18, 2019

Matthew 13:5 (MSG)  Some  (seeds)  fell in the gravel;  it sprouted quickly but didn’t put down roots,  so when the sun came up it withered just as quickly.  Some people receive God’s Word  (the seed)  with  “enthusiasm”  (Moffat)  but it is short lived.  In times of trial or testing  (Luke 8:13)  they fall away.  Unbelief  (Heb.  3:7-12),  disobedience  (Zech 7:8-12),  rationalization  (Mark 8:16-17),  resistance to the truth  (Acts 19:8-9),  pride  (Daniel 5:20),  refusal to yield to the Lord  (II Chron.…

DEVOTIONS – WEDNESDAY JULY 17, 2019

Matthew 13:19 (NLT)   The seed that fell on the footpath represents those who hear the message about the Kingdom and don’t understand it.  Then the evil one comes and snatches away the seed that was planted in their hearts.  The soil had been trampled down and had become a hard surface more useful for traffic than for crops.  This condition affected the seed in that it could not sink into soft soil and be absorbed.  Birds pecked it up …

DEVOTIONS – TUESDAY JULY 16, 2019

Matthew 13:12  (NLT)  To those who listen to my teaching,  more understanding will be given,  and they will have an abundance of knowledge.  But for those who are not listening,  even what little understanding they have will be taken away from them. If a hearer is to benefit from Christ’s teachings,  he or she must possess a condition of heart that is suitable for the reception of truth,  which will then multiply.  If that condition of heart is not present …

DEVOTIONS – MONDAY JULY 15, 2019

Matthew 13:2-3 (NLT)  A large crowd soon gathered around  (Jesus),  so He got into a boat.  Then He sat there and taught as the people stood on the shore.  He told many stories in the form of parables,  such as this one.  Jesus was conscious that with so many people gathered to hear Him,  there existed a diversity of reasons why they had come.  Some came out of mere curiosity and not necessarily out of receptiveness to the truth He…

DEVOTIONS – SATURDAY JULY 13, 2019

Proverbs 16:21 –  The wise in heart are called discerning,  and pleasant words promote instruction.  Ever find yourself in a tense situation in which everyone’s nerves are on edge?  It can be difficult to keep a calm spirit,  lowered voice,  and reassuring demeanor in such situations;  but they are fundamental to the process of helping people work together through a problem.  God wants us to be fluent in the language of discernment.  We must learn to be wise in heart…

DEVOTIONS – FRIDAY JULY 12, 2019

II Kings 6:16-17 –  And Elisha prayed,  “O Lord, open his eyes so he may see.”  Then the Lord opened the servant’s eyes,  and he looked and saw the hills full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha.  What do you see when you look at your life?  Sometimes we need an eye-opening  “ah-ha”  moment so that we can discover God’s reality rather than living consumed by our own realities.  Elisha saw what his servant could not see—the…

DEVOTIONS – THURSDAY JULY 11, 2019

Exodus 6:8  –  “I will bring you to the land I swore with uplifted hand to give to Abraham,  to Isaac and to Jacob.  I will give it to you as a possession.  I am the Lord.”  Moses reported this to the Israelites,  but they did not listen to him because of their discouragement and cruel bondage.  If only the Children of Israel could have known what we know today.  Great miracles of provision were ahead of them.  But they…

I Samuel 30:6  –  David was now in great danger because all his men were very bitter about losing their sons and daughters,  and they began to talk of stoning him.  But David found strength in the Lord his God.  David was facing a life-threatening situation.  His men were overwhelmed with a sense of loss.  Read the whole story.  Where did David go for wisdom and encouragement?  He  “encouraged himself in the Lord his God”  (KJSV)  and then called for…

DEVOTIONS – TUESDAY JULY 9, 2019

II Kings 5:3  (NLT)  –  One day the girl said to her mistress,  “I wish my master would go to see the prophet in Samaria.  He would heal him of his leprosy.”   Naaman was a mighty warrior,  commander of the army of the king of Aram but stricken with leprosy.  The warriors,  political giants,  philosophers,  kings,  and healers of his day could not help.  But God used the unassuming words of a little girl to guide him to healing. …
