    Christian Devotional – August 9, 2018

    Where do you go when experiencing difficulties? Troubles? Frustration? I know that God cares and He hears. See Psalm 120. In my trouble I cried to the Lord , And He answered me. Psalms 120:1 NASB https://bible.com/bible/100/psa.120.1.NASB There was trouble. The person called out to God. God responded. Those three steps are vital to moving through hard times. First, we have to recognize that we are in trouble because sometimes we don’t always see that until it’s much larger in the process. Next we have to go to God about it. We can’t just complain about it or go to our friends. We have to bring it to God. Finally,…

    How much do you love God’s Word? For the psalmist, it was so much that the longest book of the Bible is dedicated to God’s Word. Read Psalm 119. I know, O Lord , that Your judgments are righteous, And that in faithfulness You have afflicted me. Psalms 119:75 NASB https://bible.com/bible/100/psa.119.75.NASB While there are many verses throughout this chapter that are challenging and amazing, this one stuck out to me today. God is righteous and his judgments are righteous. God knows when we need a gentle nudge back into the right path, and he knows we may need a hard shove back into the right path. God desires to see…

    Reading Psalm 118 we see this verse. The Lord is for me; I will not fear; What can man do to me? Psalms 118:6 NASB https://bible.com/bible/100/psa.118.6.NASB This verse has often been quoted by people going through hard and difficult times. Yet, when we think about it, there really are several things that people can do to us. Those are the things that come up in the back of our minds while we are dealing with the situation. The emphasis of the verse us more about the eternal things. What can man do to impact our eternal life, nothing at all. That is where we are at when it comes to…

    Lovingkindness and truth. These often are not seen together. Many times people think of truth as being harsh or direct or even difficult to hear, yet the psalmist puts these together in Psalm 117. For His lovingkindness is great toward us, And the truth of the Lord is everlasting. Praise the Lord ! Psalms 117:2 NASB https://bible.com/bible/100/psa.117.2.NASB God’s lovingkindness is great and His truth is everlasting. ┬áSometimes the greatest thing we can do for someone is provide the truth or the knowledge of what they are going through and experiencing. God desires the best for us, and only by knowing and living out his truth can we truly understand what…

    When frustrated and feeling abandoned, where do you turn. We all go through and experience this feeling from time to time, yet how we respond is the key. See how the psalmist responded in Psalm 116. Then I called upon the name of the Lord : “O Lord , I beseech You, save my life!” Psalms 116:4 NASB https://bible.com/bible/100/psa.116.4.NASB Our salvation only comes from God. We must turn to Him and allow Him to continue to move and work in and through us. Even when we can’t see Him, He is still there. Call to Him, He answers. Please follow and like us:

    Christian Devotional – July 26, 2018

    Do we want glory for ourselves? What do we do to try and get glory for ourselves? In truth, only God is worthy of glory and if we are focused on Him, we will desire to see Him glorified. See Psalm chapter 115. Not to us, O Lord , not to us, But to Your name give glory Because of Your lovingkindness, because of Your truth. Psalms 115:1 NASB https://bible.com/bible/100/psa.115.1.NASB When we truly understand who God is and what He does, we will understand that He truly deserves all glory and praise, not us. Are we seeking to give Him the praise and glory that He deserves? Will we point…

    Christian Devotional – July 24, 2018

    When should we praise God? The easy, and correct, answer is “all the time.” While that may be easy to know and to say, it is much harder to do. See how the Psalmist discusses it in Psalm 113. From the rising of the sun to its setting The name of the Lord is to be praised. Psalms 113:3 NASB https://bible.com/bible/100/psa.113.3.NASB From the rising to the setting of the sun, we are to praise God. From the moment we awake until we fall asleep, we are to praise God. Do we recognize the importance of praising God in every area and circumstance we face? God is worthy, even when we…

    Christian Devotional – July 23, 2018

    How would people describe you? When we think about the characteristics that define how we act and react in situations, how do others see us. What should be the defining characteristics? Read Psalm chapter 112. He will not fear evil tidings; His heart is steadfast, trusting in the Lord . Psalms 112:7 NASB https://bible.com/bible/100/psa.112.7.NASB No fear, steadfast, and trusting are all words that the psalmist uses to describe the person who follows the Lord. When we look at our lives, do our actions reflect that? How do we respond when faced with difficulties and struggles? How do we respond when experiencing positive, happy situations? God is there during both. Do…

Psalms 111:10 NASB https://bible.com/bible/100/psa.111.10.NASB Seeking God, no matter the circumstances is where wisdom starts for us.
