Thanks To All Service Men

Daily Christian Devotionals

I give thanks to all the current service men, the retired service men, and those that have lost their lives while serving our country. Thank you for making a stand for this country. You have served so hard and diligently. What you do is honorable. Your cause is just. Thank you for fighting for a good cause. You don’t fight out of anger but out of love for all mankind. You set people free just as God rescues us when we are in captivity. God bless you all for keeping us safe when times are hard. Even in uncertainty you come to our rescue.

When God blesses your life, trust in Him. When times seem hard don’t give into your fears. Even when things seem impossible, seek the Lord.

Thanks To God

Daily Christian Devotionals

After the Lord had blessed Abram “he built an altar to the Lord and called on the name of the Lord”. He gave thanks to God. He was so grateful to be blessed by the Lord. He is a great example of giving honor to God through prayer. How often do we go on with our regular activities in the day and not give thanks to God. We get so caught up in ourselves that we forget all the things that God has blessed us with. To truly understand all the Lord has to offer us is to come to know Him in prayer. We need to break free from the physical nature of ourselves and enter the spiritual nature with God. When our minds are focused on God we see past our physical needs. What the Lord has to offer us is most important. We need to reach the…

Tower Of Babel

Daily Christian Devotionals

After the flood, the people on the earth started to be very prideful and carried away in their own wisdom. They had lost touch with God. Because of the flood, all the people were of one speech. They all understood each other and therefore could carry out their plans with ease. They thought they were above God for they had the power to build a tower in Babel that could reach the heavens. What they didn’t take note of is that the Lord God is more powerful than anyone. They may have had power to build a mighty fortress but God has power to tear it down in an instant. As they built their tower the Lord said, “Indeed the people are one and they all have one language, and this is what they begin to do; now nothing that they propose to do will be withheld from them. Come…

Thou Shalt Not Kill

Daily Christian Devotionals

After the flood, God told Noah one of His commandments, ” Whoever sheds man’s blood, By man his blood shall be shed; For in the image of God He made man.” In other words, “Thou shalt not kill”. From the beginning of time this was an important commandment. God made us for a purpose and when one kills another it disrupts God’s will. There may only be a small percentage of people in the world that are murderers but there are a big percent of our younger generation that are into hardcore gaming. You may think that gaming is not a sin, however if that game leads you to think of killing another person than it is a sin. Jesus said, “But I say to you that whoever looks at a woman to lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart.” Notice that He said that…

Pray To God

Daily Christian Devotionals

Today I was outside mowing the lawn when it started to rain. All the doors were locked and the garage door was closed. I never bring a key outside when I mow the lawn, as the garage door opener always works. However, this time the garage door key code didn’t work. I tried the same code over ten times and nothing happened. I didn’t know what to do. I was getting very scared that I’d be stuck out in the rain. My wife wasn’t going to be home for another couple of hours. Then, I thought a minute about my situation. I may not be able to get out of this easily on my own but I knew one person that could do all things. I put my head down against the garage door and touched it. I then prayed to God to help me. I told Him that I…

Worship The Lord

Daily Christian Devotionals

After the flood had subsided on the earth, God told Noah to leave the ark for there was dry ground. It was time for them and all the animals to leave the boat and be fruitful and multiple on the earth. Everything was starting a new. It was a new start for God’s family to start over fresh on the earth. The Lord had a plan for all of them that remained. He had chosen the righteous to share His seed. Our Lord God is so mighty and can do all things to bring about His will on the earth. After people left the boat, many went their own way and later forgot the Lord. However, Noah, being a man after God’s heart didn’t forget God after settling on dry ground. Noah was faithful to God and was so grateful in this moment of being saved from the world. He saved them…

Listen To Jesus

Daily Christian Devotionals

The way you live your life determines what God you are following. To believe in God means to walk in His ways. Our life is devoted to follow Him. Our thoughts are on the Lord. We trust in Him for wisdom and counsel. We worship the Lord in prayer. He is our number one priority. Nothing comes before Him. Our beloved Jesus said, “If God were your Father, you would love Me, for I proceeded forth and came from God; nor have I come of Myself, but He sent Me. Why do you not understand My speech? Because you are not able to listen to My word.” Love the Lord with all your heart. Put aside all things to follow Him. Pray that the Spirit will be in your life. The Lord has a plan for You.
