    Christian Devotional – September 4, 2018

    God answers prayer. We may not always agree with how He answered it, but God answers prayer. See what the psalmist wrote in Psalm 138. On the day I called, You answered me; You made me bold with strength in my soul. Psalms 138:3 NASB https://bible.com/bible/100/psa.138.3.NASB Not only did He answer the psalmist, but He gave him boldness and strength. God knows what we need to face the experiences of life and He has everything we need in abundance. Will we ask Him for what we need, to do what He has called us to do? Please follow and like us:

    Sometimes we don’t know what we have until it’s gone. The psalmist expressed that very feeling when he sat down and wrote Psalm 137. For there our captors demanded of us songs, And our tormentors mirth, saying, “Sing us one of the songs of Zion.” Psalms 137:3 NASB https://bible.com/bible/100/psa.137.3.NASB The song is taken from the days of captivity, after Jerusalem was captured and the people were exported to Babylon. Even while in captivity their captors tormented them by asking them to sing the songs of Jerusalem. What bitter memories that must have invoked! It reminded them of all the wonderful things that they had, but that they had lost because…

    God does great wonders. He does amazing things that I don’t understand and can’t explain. See Psalm 136. To Him who alone does great wonders, For His lovingkindness is everlasting; Psalms 136:4 NASB https://bible.com/bible/100/psa.136.4.NASB Now, sometimes they don’t feel like great things in the moment. Sometimes they feel hard and difficult. But He is great and so the things that He does are great. Are we expecting great things from him? Do we seek after Him and give Him praise for what He does and is doing? Please follow and like us:

    What is God doing? I know I’ve asked that question on several occasions. God and I have had long talks about what in the world he is doing 🙂 Still, God is not randomly choosing to do some things and to avoid others. They are all part of his grand plan and design. See what the psalmist said in Psalm 135. Whatever the Lord pleases, He does, In heaven and in earth, in the seas and in all deeps. Psalms 135:6 NASB https://bible.com/bible/100/psa.135.6.NASB God does the things that please him and those are part of the overall plan that he has. He desires to see people turn to him and…

    Who are all the overnight workers? It can be a difficult and sometimes thankless role to work overnight. Yet, in many cases it is of vital importance to the things that get done during the day. The psalmist calls them out specifically for blessing from the Lord in Psalm 134. Behold, bless the Lord , all servants of the Lord , Who serve by night in the house of the Lord ! Psalms 134:1 NASB https://bible.com/bible/100/psa.134.1.NASB Are you thankful for the people who work behind the scenes, helping out to do all that needs to be done? God never sleeps. He is still there for those people who carry on…

    Unity. Such a small little word with amazingly huge potential. Also, it is amazingly difficult at times. See what the psalmist says in Psalm 133. Behold, how good and how pleasant it is For brothers to dwell together in unity! Psalms 133:1 NASB https://bible.com/bible/100/psa.133.1.NASB It is most certainly good and pleasant, it’s just not easy. Having unity means being intentional about actions, words, everything. Unity doesn’t just happen, it is created by the focus of all the individuals involved. Are we intentionally seeking unity in our relationships? Are we seeking unity based of the truth of Jesus Christ? Please follow and like us:

    Do we get excited about praising and worshipping the Lord? We have an amazing opportunity to do so and the psalmist knew it. See what is written in Psalm 132. Let us go into His dwelling place; Let us worship at His footstool. Psalms 132:7 NASB https://bible.com/bible/100/psa.132.7.NASB There is great praise and desire to go into the presence of God. When we have that opportunity, do we get as excited about it as the psalmist did? God is the Creator of the world and we have a chance to come into his presence and worship him. Do we look forward to this opportunity? Please follow and like us:

    Child-like faith is a subject that is frequently talked about in the Bible. But what does that look like? See Psalm 131. O Lord , my heart is not proud, nor my eyes haughty; Nor do I involve myself in great matters, Or in things too difficult for me. Psalms 131:1 NASB https://bible.com/bible/100/psa.131.1.NASB The psalm goes on to talk about resting like a weaned child in its mother’s lap. When we are resting in God, we have faith that he will take care of every situation. We are content simply to be with him. In that situation, we can’t be proud or haughty. We don’t try to involve ourselves in…

    I stink at waiting. I really do want what I want when I want it. The idea that I may have that wait just seems like purposeless time wasting. But then I read Psalm 130. I wait for the Lord , my soul does wait, And in His word do I hope. Psalms 130:5 NASB https://bible.com/bible/100/psa.130.5.NASB The psalmist talks about waiting for the Lord. But not an inactive waiting. While waiting there is to be hope that happens. Waiting can be focused on understanding God better and recognizing how he moves better. There is hope in the waiting. If we are not willing to wait, we do not understand what…

    Some days I catch myself wondering if the trials and difficulties ever end. Are there days when it’s easy? I’m sure the psalmist felt that way when he wrote Psalm 129. “Many times they have persecuted me from my youth up; Yet they have not prevailed against me. Psalms 129:2 NASB https://bible.com/bible/100/psa.129.2.NASB It can feel like we are only ever under attack. It can feel that we are all alone facing these times, but we’re not. God is with us and He is the one who continues to strengthen us and help us to stand firm in the face of difficulties. Are we standing strong in Him today? Please follow…
