Daily Devotional- Your Will Be Done

“When you pray, don’t babble on and on as the Gentiles do. They think their prayers are answered merely by repeating their words again and again. Don’t be like them, for your Father knows exactly what you need even before you ask him! Pray like this: Our Father in heaven, may your name be kept holy. May your Kingdom come soon. May your will be done on earth, as it is in heaven. Give us today the food we need, and forgive us our sins, as we have forgiven those who sin against us. And don’t let us yield to temptation, but rescue us from the evil one.” – Matthew 6:7-13

I think too many times in our prayer life we become too stagnant and just keep repeating the same things to God. However, He wants us to come boldly before Him and ask Him what we need because He already knows our needs. We need to welcome His will for us in our life and trust Him in where He is bringing us even when we don’t understand it.

Daily Devotional- Growth Matters

“Jesus grew in wisdom and in stature and in favor with God and all the people.” – Luke 2:52

“Most men die at 25, we just don’t bury them until they are 75.” – Benjamin Franklin

Growth is a necessary thing for us to fulfill what God wants us to do on earth. However, most of us stop growing in our early adult years and live life on autopilot the rest of time. We must take it upon ourselves to continue growing and ask God what areas He wants us to improve and get better in to fulfill the vision He has for our life.


Daily Devotional- Attitude Matters

“Do everything without complaining and arguing, so that no one can criticize you. Live clean, innocent lives as children of God, shining like bright lights in a world full of crooked and perverse people.” – Philippians 2:14-15

There aren’t many things we can control in life but one of the few things we control is our attitude. How see things and handle tough situations will help us grow in faith and be able to be a light wherever we go.

Daily Devotional- What is Stewardship?

Parable of the Three Servants: Matthew 25:14-30

“To those who use well what they are given, even more will be given, and they will have an abundance. But from those who do nothing, even what little they have will be taken away.” – Matthew 25:29

What is Stewardship? It’s the careful and responsible management of something entrusted to one’s care. Our income is one of those things God entrusts us with. We are wondering why we aren’t seeing increase in our finances it is because we aren’t being faithful with what God has already placed in our possession. For us to see that increase we must ask ourselves and God about how we can be better stewards of the money He has given us and where improvements need to be made.

Daily Devotional- Money Basics

“Money isn’t the most important thing in life, but it’s reasonably close to oxygen on the ‘gotta have it’ scale.” – Zig Ziglar

““No one can serve two masters. For you will hate one and love the other; you will be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and be enslaved to money.” – Matthew 6:24

““If you are faithful in little things, you will be faithful in large ones. But if you are dishonest in little things, you won’t be honest with greater responsibilities. And if you are untrustworthy about worldly wealth, who will trust you with the true riches of heaven? And if you are not faithful with other people’s things, why should you be trusted with things of your own?” Luke 16:10-12

There is a big misconception believers and nonbelievers have about money. Money plays an important role in our life, however it shouldn’t be more important than our relationship with God. When we understand this the next question we might ask ourselves is how come we aren’t seeing increase in our income and might be struggling to pay bills? Well that boils down to our stewardship of it and how we handle what God has entrusted us with. Those are some of the basics in understanding money in our life.

Daily Devotional- From Dreaming to Doing

“We destroy every proud obstacle that keeps people from knowing God. We capture their rebellious thoughts and teach them to obey Christ.” – 2 Corinthians 10:5

It’s good to have ideas and thoughts of doing great things but we must act them out. We have to have the courage to act those goals out and turn them into a reality. Achieving our goals isn’t easy but once we get started they become a lot easier to hit. Always seek God in how He wants you to carry out your goals to turn them into reality.

Daily Devotional- Don’t Settle For Less

“This vision is for a future time. It describes the end, and it will be fulfilled.” – Habakkuk 2:3

“The greatest danger for most of us is not that our aim is too high and we miss it, but that it is too low and we reach it.” – Michelangelo

When aren’t seeing God’s promises being fulfilled yet we tend to take things into our own hands. When we do this we usually end up settling for less than what God is going to provide for us. We must learn to stay patient and know God allows delivers at the perfect time. We shouldn’t settle for any alternatives and allow God to show out for us.

Daily Devotional- Stripping Off Weight

“Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a huge crowd of witnesses to the life of faith, let us strip off every weight that slows us down, especially the sin that so easily trips us up. And let us run with endurance the race God has set before us. We do this by keeping our eyes on Jesus, the champion who initiates and perfects our faith.Because of the joy awaiting him, he endured the cross, disregarding its shame. Now he is seated in the place of honor beside God’s throne.Think of all the hostility he endured from sinful people; then you won’t become weary and give up.” – Hebrews 12:1-3

Any relationship that no longer serves us are ones we need to stop pursing. We need to make room in our life for people who are going support us and encourage us to be our best. so many times we hold ourselves back because we cling on to these unhealthy relationships. We must learn to drop them and focus on things and people who will up us along the way.

Daily Devotional- You Have More Than Enough

One day the widow of a member of the group of prophets came to Elisha and cried out, “My husband who served you is dead, and you know how he feared the Lord. But now a creditor has come, threatening to take my two sons as slaves.” “What can I do to help you?” Elisha asked. “Tell me, what do you have in the house?” “Nothing at all, except a flask of olive oil,” she replied. And Elisha said, “Borrow as many empty jars as you can from your friends and neighbors. Then go into your house with your sons and shut the door behind you. Pour olive oil from your flask into the jars, setting each one aside when it is filled.” So she did as she was told. Her sons kept bringing jars to her, and she filled one after another. Soon every container was full to the brim! “Bring me another jar,” she said to one of her sons. “There aren’t any more!” he told her. And then the olive oil stopped flowing.When she told the man of God what had happened, he said to her, “Now sell the olive oil and pay your debts, and you and your sons can live on what is left over.” 2 Kings 4:1-7

When we have limited resources in our life we tend to focus too much on our limitations. God sees it differently. He will always meet our needs and throughout scripture showed He can turn a little into a lot. So we must have the faith that He will make a way with what we have in our possession.

Daily Devotional- What Is Your Axe Head?

“One day the group of prophets came to Elisha and told him, “As you can see, this place where we meet with you is too small. 2 Let’s go down to the Jordan River, where there are plenty of logs. There we can build a new place for us to meet.” “All right,” he told them, “go ahead.” “Please come with us,” someone suggested. “I will,” he said. So he went with them. When they arrived at the Jordan, they began cutting down trees. 5 But as one of them was cutting a tree, his ax head fell into the river. “Oh, sir!” he cried. “It was a borrowed ax!” “Where did it fall?” the man of God asked. When he showed him the place, Elisha cut a stick and threw it into the water at that spot. Then the ax head floated to the surface. 7 “Grab it,” Elisha said. And the man reached out and grabbed it.” – 2 Kings 6:1-7

When you first read this story, it may seem like there is no purpose to it, but there is much to learn from this story. God cares about what you’ve lost. No concern is too small to our God. What have you lost? Have you lost a blessing, a relationship, peace, financial strength, your reputation, or something else? The good news is that God cares so much about whatever you’ve lost that He can help you recover what you’ve lost. God can help you find what you lost by beginning to look at where it fell. Go back to where you got off track and allow God to help put you back on track.
