Joyce Meyer 12th June 2018 Daily Devotional

Topic: Reminders

Key Verse: For we walk by faith…not by sight….(2 Corinthians 5:7)

Message: It doesn’t matter what kind of problem we have in our lives, we need self-control and discipline to gain and maintain the victory. I believe this is especially true with regard to our thought life and the battle for our mind. What begins in the mind eventually comes out of the mouth, and before we know it, we’re telling anyone who will listen how we feel. We have to discipline our mind, our mouth, our feelings, and our actions so that they are all in agreement with what the Word of God says.

Joyce Meyer 12th June 2018 Daily Devotional – Reminders

Every quality of God that is in you and me, God Himself planted in us in the form of a seed the day we accepted Christ (see Colossians 2:10). Over time and through life’s experiences, the seeds of Christ’s character begin to grow and produce the fruit of His Spirit: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control (see Galatians 5:22–23).

I have found that it is virtually impossible to operate in any of the other eight fruit of the Spirit unless we are exercising self-control. How can you and I remain patient, for example, in the midst of an upsetting situation unless we exercise restraint? Or how can we walk in love and believe the best of someone after they have repeatedly hurt us unless we use the fruit of self-control?

As Christians, we have the fruit of the Spirit in us, but we must purposely choose to exercise them. Not choosing to exercise the fruit of the Spirit is what produces carnal Christians—¬those who are under the control of ordinary im¬pulses and walk after the desires of the flesh (see 1 Corinthians 3:3). Whatever we exercise the most becomes the strongest.

Our thoughts and words are two areas in which the Holy Spirit is constantly prompting us to exercise self-control. The Bible says that “. . . as [a man] thinks in his heart, so is he,” and “out of the abundance (overflow) of the heart his mouth speaks” (Proverbs 23:7; Luke 6:45 AMPC). Satan is ¬constantly trying to get us to accept wrong thoughts about everything from God’s love for us to what terrible thing is going to happen to us next. Why? Because he knows that once we start accepting and believing his lies, it is just a matter of time until we begin to speak them out of our mouths. And when we speak wrong things, we open the door for wrong things to come into our lives (see Proverbs 18:20–21).

Joyce Meyer 12th June 2018 Daily Devotional – Reminders

What if, instead of allowing our minds to go over all of the things that have hurt us, we would remind ourselves to think about all the good things God has brought into our lives? When we allow Satan to fill our minds with worry, anxiety, and doubt, we wear out our ability to make good decisions. Worry is also thankless by nature. I’ve noticed that people who worry rarely see much good in life. They talk about tragedy, failures, sickness, and loss. They seem unable to focus on the good things that they still have in life.

Try this. Each day, focus on the things God has done for you in the past. This will make it easier for you to expect good things in the future. As I wrote those words, I thought of the memorials mentioned in the Old Testament. Often the people stacked up heaps of stones as reminders that God had delivered them or appeared to them. As they looked backward and remembered, they were able to look forward and believe.

The psalmist wrote, “O my God, my life is cast down upon me [and I find the burden more than I can bear]; therefore will I [earnestly] remember You from the land of the Jordan [River] and the [summits of Mount] Hermon” (Psalm 42:6 AMPC). He was reminding himself of past victories. When he was having problems, he recalled God’s great work in the lives of the people.

Joyce Meyer 12th June 2018 Daily Devotional – Reminders

When doubts try to sneak in, you can do what the psalmist did: You can look back and remember that God has always been with His people. All of us have had times when we wondered if we’d make it. But we did. So will you.

Prayer Starter: My great God, forgive me for allowing the little things of life to distract me and to take my thoughts away from You. Through Jesus Christ, help me always to remember that You are with me in the good times and in the bad times. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

Andrew Wommack 22 September 2018 Daily Devotional – The Two Greatest Commands

Published

Andrew Wommack 22 September 2018 Daily Devotional 

Topic: The Two Greatest Commands

Scripture: Matthew 22:36 “Master, which is the great commandment in the law? Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.“

Text: Matthew 22:34-46

Jesus revealed that all of the Old Testament laws were designed to instruct us how to love God and love others. Therefore, the two commands that dealt directly with loving God and others (Lev. 19:18 and Dt. 6:5) were the most important.

Message: The religious leaders had become so obsessed with keeping every minor detail of the law that they had lost sight of its ultimate purpose. They neither loved God nor their fellow man, yet they thought they were keeping the law.

The same thing is happening today. Some of the cruelest acts of men towards their fellow men have been done in the name of the Lord by people who thought they were defending God’s holy commandments. However, if we violate one of the two greatest commandments in an effort to enforce some other commandment, then we are misapplying God’s Word just as these religious Jews did.

Andrew Wommack 22 September 2018 Daily Devotional – The Two Greatest Commands

The Old Testament law and the New Testament concept of grace compels men to the same end, that is to love God and their fellowmen. However, the motivations to this end are different. The Old Testament law motivated men to love God and their fellowman through fear of punishment if they failed to comply. The New Testament concept of grace freely gives men a God-kind of love that is unconditional and tells them to love others as they are loved.

It is possible to display actions of holiness, but not love God. It is impossible for God’s kind of love not to produce holiness. Holiness is a fruit and not a root of loving God.

TREM Daily Devotional 22 September 2018 

Topic: When You See Jesus

Scripture: “In the year that king Uzziah died I saw also the LORD sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and his train filled the temple.” Isaiah 6:1 (KJV)

Message: One thing is to be born again, but another thing is to truly see the Lord and what He has done on your behalf. There are many who are born again, but are yet to see Him as He is. The scripture declares that in the year king Uzziah died, Isaiah saw the Lord. That means Isaiah had been a prophet, called and anointed by God but had not seen Him. He has not come to terms with the God that called him and the God that was using him. God had to get Uzziah out of the way because Uzziah had become like a god to Isaiah. Thereafter, as soon as Uzziah was taken out of the way, his eyes were open for the first time to the God that called him.

TREM Daily Devotional 22 September 2018 – When You See Jesus

There are many of us believers that love God with all our heart but we’ve not truly seen Him because He is not reflected in the way we do things. Yes, you’re born again, you speak in tongues, you’re in church at all times but you have not really seen Him.

Imagine what happened to Isaiah after he beheld the Lord; he immediately realized his filth. He said to himself “…Woe is me!”, because he was then able to see himself in the light of God. “Woe is me, for I am undone; because I am a man of unclean lips…” In other words, he was not qualified to come before the Lord. At that point, an angel from God’s presence placed hot coal on his mouth, and declared that his iniquity had been taken away, and his sins purged. Immediately something happened to him. Guess what Isaiah’s response was to God’s grace and mercy? He immediately made himself available for the Master’s use.

TREM Daily Devotional 22 September 2018 – When You See Jesus

Beloved, when you see Jesus, everything else loses value. He becomes the center of your life’s endeavours. Nothing will be too big a price to pay for the sake of Jesus, because He paid the ultimate price for your sake.
