DEVOTIONS – WEDNESDAY OCTOBER 2, 2019

Isaiah 50:4 (MSG) –  The Master,  God,  has given me a well-taught tongue.  So I know how to encourage tired people.  He wakes me up in the morning,  wakes me up,  opens my ears to listen as one ready to take orders.   The Father teaches us:  How to speak  (KJV),  and what to speak  (“a word”  KJV),  and when to speak  (“in season”  KJV),  and to whom to speak  (“to him who is weary”  KJV).  God wants to use…

DEVOTIONS – TUESDAY OCTOBER 1, 2019

John 14: 10 (NIV) –  Don’t you believe that I am in the Father,  and that the Father is in me?  The words I say to you are not just my own.  Rather,  it is the Father,  living in me,  who is doing his work.   The words that Jesus taught originated in the Father.  Jesus taught with knowledge on par with the theologians of His day as well as with superiority  (John 7:46;  Luke 2:47;  Luke 4:16-22).  It was…

DEVOTIONS – MONDAY SEPTEMBER 30, 2019

Matthew 11:25 (NIV) –  At that time Jesus said,  “I praise you,  Father,  Lord of heaven and earth,  because you have hidden these things from the wise and learned,  and revealed them to little children.  Those who were  “wise and learned”  (proud of heart and conceited of mind) were unable to grasp the truths that Jesus taught.  It is the  “little children”  with open,  honest,  and humble hearts who readily hear God’s Word.  The disciples saw supernatural things that others…

DEVOTIONS – SATURDAY SEPTEMBER 28, 2019

Isaiah 30:18 (NLT) –  Yet the Lord longs to be gracious to you;  He rises to show you compassion.  For the Lord is a God of justice.  Blessed are all who wait for Him!   “God waits for us to wait for Him and guarantees His response.  The waiting period of God’s workshop during which He employs a diversity of means to do within us a work of grace takes time.  Look at the patience of Job.”  We want great…

DEVOTIONS – FRIDAY SEPTEMBER 27, 2019

Exodus 24:12-16 (NIV)  Focus verse 116b –  For six days,  the cloud covered the mountain,  and on the seventh day,  the Lord called to Moses from within the cloud.   “God took Moses through a long waiting period before He spoke His first word.  Physical considerations were subordinated to the higher laws of the Spirit.  This is tribulation to the body that works patience.  To hurry God is to find fault with Him.”  Supernatural changes take place in our souls…

DEVOTIONS – THURSDAY SEPTEMBER 26, 2019

John 2:27 (NIV) –  As for you,  the anointing you received from Him remains in you,  and you do not need anyone to teach you… remain in Him.  The anointing of the Holy Spirit enables us instinctively to differentiate between truth and error.  This verse is not a proof text for eliminating study and getting all weird with your faith.  Rather,  it calls us to pay attention to the nuanced leadings of the Holy Spirit in our daily lives.  He…

DEVOTIONS – WEDNESDAY SEPTEMBER 25, 2019

Mark 1:35-37 (NIV) –   Very early in the morning,  while it was still dark,  Jesus got up,  left the house and went off to a solitary place,  where He prayed.  Simon and his companions went to look for Him,  and when they found Him,  they exclaimed:  Everyone is looking for you!”  Sometimes people don’t understand the reality that God’s leaders must get away to be alone with God (Ex. 32:1;  Ex. 24:12-16).  We live in a world driven by…

DEVOTIONS – TUESDAY SEPTEMBER 24, 2019

Mark 3:14 (KJV) –  And he  (Jesus)  ordained twelve,  that they should be with Him,  and that He might send them forth to preach…  Our primary calling in life is to be  “with Him.”  That means we are  “separated from our normal associations and pursuits and dedicated to our personal association with Christ in fellowship and submission to His Lordship.”  This means more than just showing up for worship on Sundays.  This means living with Jesus in the center of…

DEVOTIONS – MONDAY SEPTEMBER 23, 2019

Mark 4:11 (NIV) –  (Jesus)  told  (the disciples),  “The secret of the Kingdom of God has been given to you”…  God’s Word gives us a divine perspective that the Holy Spirit unpacks and applies to real,  everyday situations.  It is quite remarkable that God would want us to know the  “mysteries of the Kingdom” (KJV)  in order that we can live in sync with the heart and mind of God and reveal Jesus to people through our often-flawed life.  There…

DEVOTIONS – SATURDAY SEPTEMBER 21, 2019

Mark 3:14 (NLT) –   He appointed twelve—designated them apostles—that they might be with him…  Those called to ministry have a highest priority of being with Jesus,  “separated from their normal associations and pursuits and dedicated to their personal association with Him in fellowship and submission to His Lordship.”  Being with Jesus precedes going out for Him.

DEVOTIONS – FRIDAY SEPTEMBER 20, 2019

I Corinthians 12:12-27 (NIV) –  Now the body is not made up of one part but of many. (v. 14)  (focus verse 14) Every member of the Body of Christ has a God-appointed place with a God-appointed function for a God-appointed purpose. No one member can regard the function of any other member as unnecessary. The Body is built up by that which every joint supplies—the contribution of each member (Eph. 4:16). “God brings into play the function of each…

DEVOTIONS – THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 19, 2019

Mark 1:17 (NIV) –   “Come follow me,” Jesus said…  Consider the diversity of circumstances in which God called people:  while being a fugitive from justice  (Ex. 3:1-12);  while plowing in a field  (I Kings 19:19-21);  while following the flock  (Amos 7:14-15);  while fishing and mending nets  (Mark 2:16-20);  while serving the Roman empire as a tax collector  (Mark 2:13-14);  while traveling to Damascus for the purpose of persecuting God’s people  (Acts 9:1-9).  Saul was on his way to arrest…
