Inspirational Devotions on the Go
“But Jesus remained silent. . . “(Matthew 26:63a, NIV) Silence is an amazing thing. It’s calm and peaceful when we want to get out of the storm. It’s deafening power can fill a room. It allows us to be able to identify what is going on around us and become aware of any intruders. To[…]
“Trouble and distress have come upon me,but your commands give me delight,” (Psalm 119:143, NIV). When trouble and distress come our way, it can come in many forms. It can manifest itself in our health, finances, family and affect our home. The refrigerator can break down and lose a months worth of food. The car[…]
“Listen, my dear brothers and sisters: Has not God chosen those who are poor in the eyes of the world to be rich in faith and to inherit the kingdom he promised those who love him?” (James 2:5, NIV). The more I read God’s Word, the more I am convinced about who He seeks and treasures. He doesn’t play[…]
“The crowd joined in the attack against Paul and Silas, and the magistrates ordered them to be stripped and beaten with rods,” (Acts 16:22, NIV). Anytime we begin to walk into the call God has on our life, it is not without risk and opposition. All of heaven is with us, which means all of[…]
“Saul was afraid of David, because the Lord was with David but had departed from Saul,” (1 Samuel 18:12, NIV). There is nothing more challenging in this world than dealing with difficult relationships. They can be in our families, at work, in our communities and in our churches. With the holidays quickly approaching, how do[…]
“If your brother or sister sins, go and point out their fault, just between the two of you. If they listen to you, you have won them over,” (Matthew 18:15, NIV). If you ask any licensed professional, they’ll tell you the best way to deal with conflict is to approach it head on. There are[…]
“You will not fear the terror of night,nor the arrow that flies by day, nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness,nor the plague that destroys at midday,” (Psalm 91:5-6, NIV). Fear is a natural and normal response to the things that threaten our humanity. There are good fears that keep us safe, like taking[…]
“For, ‘All people are like grass,and all their glory is like the flowers of the field;the grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of the Lord endures forever.’ And this is the word that was preached to you,” (1 Peter 1:24-25, NIV). Flowers are a beautiful thing and we always look forward to[…]
“Nothing in all creation is hidden from God’s sight. Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of him to whom we must give account,” (Hebrews 4:13, NIV). Every thing in creation is uncovered before God’s eyes. He created the expanse of the universe and filled it with His creation. The stars give light[…]
“’Here comes that dreamer!’ they said to each other,” (Genesis 37:19, NIV). Every so often when a person is following the will of God, it brings them to a crossroad with the ones they love. It isn’t required by everyone, but is mandatory for some if they want to fulfill the call God has on[…]
“A person finds joy in giving an apt reply—and how good is a timely word,” (Proverbs 15:23, NIV). There has been a lot of discussion as to what joy is and what it isn’t. We all have our own interpretation, yet find ourselves lacking when trying to understand it all. Anytime we need an answer,[…]
“Those who consider themselves religious and yet do not keep a tight rein on their tongues deceive themselves, and their religion is worthless,” (James 1:26, NIV). It’s one thing to be religious, but another to have a relationship with the All Mighty. We all desire the intimate encounters with our Creator, but what we say[…]
“Restore to me the joy of your salvation and grant me a willing spirit, to sustain me,” (Psalm 51:12, NIV). As the nights grow long and the sun begins to set, it can be easy to become commonplace about our surroundings and the ones we love. We stay preoccupied with the tasks and responsibilities we[…]
“Take delight in the Lord,and he will give you the desires of your heart,” (Psalm 37:4, NIV). If we take the time to determine what we delight in, we might be surprised. The obvious things we delight in are food, fashion, fun and frivolous things. They don’t matter much on this side of eternity, but[…]
“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go,” (Joshua 1:9, NIV). We all have those moments – moments we will never forget – moments we carry with us wherever we go. One of the[…]
“Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me,” (Matthew 5:11, NIV). Persecution is not something that anyone wakes up in the morning looking forward to. It can come in all kinds of forms. The enemy can try to come against us in[…]
“Therefore, I tell you, her many sins have been forgiven—as her great love has shown. But whoever has been forgiven little loves little,” (Luke 7:47, NIV). Over time, we are able to see who our real friends are. When we go through tough times, they’re with us holding our hands. They walk through the mud[…]
“We hear that some among you are idle and disruptive. They are not busy; they are busybodies,” (2 Thessalonians 3:11, NIV). Living in a multi-cultural, social media world can leave anyone confused in chaos. There is so much to do, so little time, and so many places we would like to be. We can’t do[…]
“But someone will say, ‘You have faith, and I have works.’ Show me your faith without your works, and I will show you my faith by my works,” (James 2:18, NKJV). There are two thoughts most people have when we think about faith. We attribute faith to having “faith in God.” However, most of the[…]
“Not only so, but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope,” (Romans 5:3-4, NIV). If you were to ask a US soldier or veteran why they have chosen to fight for this country, they will more than likely tell you that it’s an honor[…]
