Devotional

Deal or No Deal

If my life were on television and people could see how I grasp at things: a nicer car, more furniture, more clothes, etc.

A Radical Idea

Dear God: The law of heaven calls for a radical way of living that turns human logic on its head. It's customary for us to love and value those who treat us well.

New Year, New Heart

Dear God: It's a new year. Thank you for fresh opportunities to live for you and others. In Psalm 65:11, I read "You crown the year with a bountiful harvest."

Guest of Honor

Dear God: The Christmas season is a beautiful time of year. It is the Holiday season—by Your presence, make it also a Holy season.

Attitude of Gratitude

Dear God: This is the time of year that we think about earth's harvest, good food, and being with family. Thanksgiving is the busiest travel day of the year in the United States.

I'm Frustrated

Dear God: I’m fat and I’m frustrated—but I guess not quite enough to do anything about it. I cringe every time I hear on the news that Americans are getting fatter...

I Love Fall

Dear God: What a glorious day. The leaves just turning their beautiful colors — gold, red, yellow, burgundy. A walk in the woods with my grandsons turned into a wonderful teaching time and exploration about you and your creation.

Time For School

Dear God: School has started. Today I pray Your very special blessing on all educational institutions.

Sometimes I Doubt

Dear God: I was hit with a surging wave of doubt today. About You. Please forgive me, but I’m sometimes bombarded by the fact that everything about You, every claim You make, is invisible and has to be taken on faith.

My Child Is Hurting

Dear God: It's hard being a parent when I see my child experiencing something painful that I can't do anything about. My son is depressed and lonely. Help him take his medication.

Resurrection Hope

Dear God: Thank you for the Easter season that reaffirms our faith, trust and hope in the Resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ. He gives us the hope to which we cling—"Because I live—you too shall live."

Exposing Your Grace

Dear God: It's a new day and I thank You for bringing me to it; for the benefits of rest and renewal. I just finished reading about when Jesus healed several people of their physical problems.

Sand Dollars and Snow

Dear God: Thank you for making our world so diverse. I used to live in the Midwest where it's cold much of the Winter, but once, when I lived there, I went to Florida and collected shells on a sunny beach.

Discouragement

Dear God: Be there for every person who is discouraged. For those who feel like giving up and calling it quits.

 

God's Word Never Lies

Today, heavenly angels are by our sides, opening our minds as we prayerfully study the Scriptures. The Holy Spirit can then point us to Christ, the Living Word, who brings conviction and conversion. We are living in the last days, when we can easily fake our Christianity. The devil will use every means to distract us from the Bible and what it teaches.

     Ellen White warned, "In the last days, the earth will be almost destitute of true faith. Upon the merest pretense, the word of God will be considered unreliable, while human reasoning will be received, though it be in opposition to plain Scripture facts." It is important to understand that we can know the truth only as we base it on the authority of Scripture. God's Word never lies. It is always dependable.
