Our Daily Bread Today Devotional 21st January 2021 Thursday Daily Message By Our Daily Bread Ministries – ODB Ministries

Topic: Small Fish

Today’s Scripture: Matthew 19:16–26(NIV)

Key Verse:Come, follow me. – Matthew 19:21

Today’s Insight: There are several interpretations of Jesus’ words in Matthew 19:24: “It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of God.” One view suggests “the eye of the needle” refers to a gate opening that could only be entered by a camel that had been relieved of its cargo. Another hypothesis is that the word for “camel” was mistranslated and should be translated “rope.” But these unlikely explanations rob this statement of its true meaning. The point is that apart from God’s grace, it’s not just difficult but impossible to be saved.

Our Daily Bread Today Devotional 21st January 2021 Thursday Message

Over several years, a British couple living in West Africa developed a strong friendship with a man in their town and many times shared the love of Jesus and the story of salvation with him. Their friend, however, was reluctant to relinquish the lifetime of allegiance he had to another religion, even though he came to recognize that faith in Christ was “the greater truth.” His concern was partly financial, since he was a leader in his faith and depended on the compensation he received. He also feared losing his reputation among the people in his community.

With sadness, he explained, “I’m like a man fishing with my hands in a stream. I have caught a small fish in one, but a bigger fish is swimming by. To catch the bigger fish, I have to let go of the smaller one!”

The rich young ruler Matthew wrote about in Matthew 19 had a similar problem. When he approached Jesus, he asked, “What good thing must I do to get eternal life?” (v. 16). He seemed sincere, but he didn’t want to fully surrender his life to Jesus. He was rich, not only in money, but also in his pride of being a rule-follower. Although he desired eternal life, he loved something else more and rejected Christ’s words.

When we humbly surrender our life to Jesus and accept His free gift of salvation, He invites us, “Come, follow me” (v. 21).

Reflect & Pray

What one thing does Jesus require of us to receive salvation and the promise of eternal life with Him? What’s keeping you from fully surrendering to Him?

Dear Father, thank You for offering Your Son as payment for my sin. Help me to surrender wholly to You.

Joel Osteen 2 March 2021 Daily Devotional Message for Today

Topic: Look Up and Listen

Today’s Scripture
Luke 21:28, NKJV – Look up and lift up your heads, because your redemption draws near.

Today’s Word with Joel Osteen 2 March 2021 Daily Devotional

Hebrews 12:1 says that seeing we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us run the race that is set before us. Can I tell you, all of heaven is cheering for you? You are not running alone. Heaven’s grandstands are packed with people who believe in you. Jesus says that when you’re discouraged and tempted to give up, look up and by faith hear the cheers from the heavenly saints.

Imagine every morning if you received a personal text from Abraham, Sarah, David, Moses, Ruth, or Noah. When you woke up each day, there was a message telling you how much they believe in you and how you are well able to make it. After all that these heroes of the faith went through, their words carry some weight. If you could hear them, they’re saying, Stay encouraged. Victory is coming. Favor is coming. We made it, and you’re going to make it. God did it for us; He’s going to do it for you.

Prayer for Today
Father, thank You for the heroes of faith whose lives help show me how to live for You and who are cheering me on from heaven today. Thank You for their messages of perseverance and overcoming hardships. Help me to look up and listen and draw strength for my race. In Jesus Name, Amen.

Daily Hope with Rick Warren Devotional 2 March 2021 – How Do I Know I’m Saved?

Daily Hope with Rick Warren Devotional 2 March 2021 Today’s Message

Topic: How Do I Know I’m Saved?

Today’s Scripture: “It is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God—not by works, so that no one can boast.” Ephesians 2:8-9 (NIV)

Daily Hope with Rick Warren Devotional 2 March 2021 Message:

In Luke 23:42, one of the criminals hanging next to Jesus on the cross prayed, “Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom” (NIV).

By that time, Jesus was famous for doing miracles. But notice the man didn’t ask Jesus to stop his pain, although he would have been in excruciating pain. He didn’t ask Jesus to save him from death either.

He said, “Jesus, remember me.” Why? Because he knew his deepest need was salvation from sin and a home in heaven. And he believed Jesus could provide it.

The Bible says in Acts 16:31, “Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved” (NIV).

So how do you know for sure that you’re saved from sin? How do you know you’re going to heaven when you die? How can you be certain? How can you eliminate your doubt?

Your assurance of salvation doesn’t come from what you do, because you can’t earn your salvation. It’s not from your feelings, because feelings come and go.

So what can make you sure of your salvation? The promise of God’s Word. If God says it, that settles it, because God cannot lie. You can trust the promise of God’s Word. You can rest in it.

Jesus replied to the criminal hanging on the cross, “I assure you, today you will be with me in paradise” (Luke 23:43 NLT). Your assurance of salvation is the same: God promises you will be in heaven with him one day if you believe in faith.

Seeds of Destiny 2 March 2021 Devotional – Relationship Affects Destiny

Seeds of Destiny 2 March 2021 Devotional, Seeds of Destiny 2 March 2021 Devotional – Relationship Affects Destiny, Premium News24

Seeds of Destiny 2 March 2021 Devotional Guide By Dr. Paul Enenche

TOPIC: Relationship Affects Destiny

SCRIPTURE: Iron sharpeneth iron; so a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend. Proverbs 27:17.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Relationships can either bring you acceleration or establish your stagnation.

Seeds of Destiny 2 March 2021 Devotional Message:

It has been confirmed that the right relationship is key to destiny fulfilment. Your relationship can either make or mar your life and destiny.

Now, I will like you to take note of these three key thoughts on relationships:

i. Relationships can either bring you acceleration or establish your stagnation (Genesis 13:14)

There are people who entered your life and your life shifted; and there are those who hung around you and you are stagnated. For example, until Lot left Abraham, Abraham’s destiny couldn’t open up (Gen. 13:14). That is why it is very important to observe and pray well before you marry someone or get into any relationship.

There are people whose best days in life were the days before their marriage. That will not be your portion in Jesus’ Name.

ii. Relationship can contribute to your preservation or facilitate your destruction

The wrong relationship can kill a person physically. A person can die prematurely because of being found with the wrong people at the wrong place. There are those who have died other people’s death, and others have lost properties because of wrong associations (Jonah 1:5). But that will never be your portion in Jesus’ Name.

iii. Relationships can never leave you neutral

Your relationship is either adding something to you or taking something from you. Your relationship will either sharpen your life (Proverbs 27:17) or leave you blunt. No one relates with you on a neutral ground; everyone either adds or takes something from you.

Beloved, make up your mind to engage wisdom in relationship if you want to reach your future.

Remember this: Relationships can either bring you acceleration or establish your stagnation.

ASSIGNMENTS:

1. Give attention to your relationships in order to have a buoyant destiny. Relate carefully.

2. Make up your mind to engage in profitable relationships.

PRAYER: Lord, I ask that You give me quality and productive relationships that will facilitate my destiny fulfilment, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.

FOR FURTHER UNDERSTANDING, GET THIS MESSAGE: CRITICAL WISDOM FOR SUCCESSFUL LIVING (PT1)

QUOTE: Imbibe the character of self-control even in your relationship with people other than your husband. Discipline ensures an effective home building for you as a woman. Culled from “10 SUCCESS STRATEGIES FOR RELATIONSHIP” by Dr (Mrs) Becky Enenche.

DAILY READING: 2 Samuel 5-8.

AMAZING FACT: Eagles have one mate for life. When eagles choose a partner, it’s “Till death do us part”. Eagles are monogamous species.

PROPHETIC DECLARATION/WORD: Grace to escape the wrong/disastrous relationship is released for you in Jesus’ Name.
