Inspirational Devotions on the Go
“For the LORD of hosts has planned, and who can frustrate it? And as for His stretched-out hand, who can turn it back?” (Isaiah 14:27, NIV). Everyone loves a plan. We love to plan vacations and all the sites we wish to see. We love to plan outings with family and friends. We love to[…]
“If you then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!”(Luke 11:13, NIV). If we take a moment to inquire about the children in this world, we might be surprised as to what[…]
“When the man saw that he could not overpower him, he touched the socket of Jacob’s hip so that his hip was wrenched as he wrestled with the man,” (Genesis 32:25, NIV). Eleven years ago, God took me through the ringer. It wasn’t something I looked forward to and was thankful the Lord gave me[…]
“The law of your mouth is better to me than thousands of gold and silver pieces,” (Psalm 119:72, NIV). Everywhere we look, we see everything revolves around money. Money is a necessary commodity if we want to survive. We have to have money to eat and meet the basic necessities of life. We have to[…]
“It is good for me that I was afflicted, That I may learn Your statutes,” (Psalm 119:71, NIV). If we never have any struggles, we never really learn how to live. We won’t learn how to solve problems, find solutions, or answers to our questions. Struggles are the mechanism the Almighty uses to show us[…]
“I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ,” (Ephesians 3:17-18, NIV). When we think about roots, we think about the weeds in our yard that intertwine themselves with[…]
“A gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger,” (Proverbs 15:1, NIV). If we really want to be followers of Christ, then we will be a people of peace. Peace doesn’t pursue vindication, retaliation or annihilation. It doesn’t make enemies or vent in frustration. It doesn’t go out of its way[…]
“His pleasure is not in the strength of the horse, nor his delight in the legs of the warrior; the Lord delights in those who fear him, who put their hope in his unfailing love,” (Psalm 147:10-11, NIV). When we think about being used by God for a higher purpose, it’s in our nature to[…]
“I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband,” (Revelation 21:2, NIV). Every woman anticipates the day she gets married to her one and only true love. There are so many details to attend too; the flowers need to be[…]
“Judgment without mercy will be shown to anyone who has not been merciful. Mercy triumphs over judgment,” (James 2:13, NIV). Forgiveness and mercy are a difficult thing. Some people believe if we’re truly forgiving and merciful towards someone we’ll forget about the offense, but that denies our humanity. Some people think when we forgive we[…]
“You, then, why do you judge your brother or sister? Or why do you treat them with contempt? For we will all stand before God’s judgment seat,” (Romans 14:10, NIV). Have you ever found yourself being followed by a police officer? Sometimes it’s hard to tell, especially if they’re in an unmarked car. But when[…]
“In God, whose word I praise— in God I trust and am not afraid. What can mere mortals do to me?” (Psalm 56:4, NIV). Living in a world where we hear of violent atrocities can cause us to wonder, panic and fear, but especially when it revolves around a holiday, can cause uncertainty. We struggle[…]
“But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth” (Acts 1:8, NIV). The moment we receive Christ into our lives, we receive the Holy Spirit into our lives. The Holy Spirit[…]
“For consider Him who has endured such hostility by sinners against Himself, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart,” (Hebrews 12:3, NIV). When we know someone has gone through the same things as us, it gives us hope knowing we’re not alone. We are encouraged knowing someone has gone before us and[…]
“Fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God,” (Hebrews 12:2, NIV). When we think about Christ, we think about His life and the sacrifice He made[…]
“Therefore, since we have so great a cloud of witnesses surrounding us, let us also lay aside every encumbrance and the sin which so easily entangles us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us,” (Hebrews 12:1, NIV). Learning to live a life for Christ can be difficult to see[…]
“Each of us should please our neighbors for their good, to build them up,” (Romans 15:2, NIV). If we want to be able to serve our neighbors as the Holy Spirit desires, we first have to get to know those we are going to minister too. There are three areas that are essential to getting[…]
“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). There’s one thing I love and that’s to wrap myself is a soft blanket. I love to cover myself up because I love the way it[…]
“Oh, the depth of the riches of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable his judgments, and his paths beyond tracing out,” (Romans 11:33, NIV). If you were to ever look at any of my drawings when I was a kid, you would think I had an extraordinary talent. I could draw many things,[…]
“The Lord your God is with you,the Mighty Warrior who saves.He will take great delight in you;in his love he will no longer rebuke you,but will rejoice over you with singing,” (Zephaniah 3:17, NIV). It’s amazing to see how all kids are different. They have their own personality and preferences and they make their dislikes[…]
“Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you,” (Ephesians 4:32, NIV). It’s understandable why we get offended by sin, especially since it offends our Savior’s heart. A holy and righteous God cannot tolerate sin as it parades itself in front of His throne. The very same[…]
