Devotion on Christian Living, Comparison, Proverbs 14:30

A tranquil heart gives life to the flesh, but envy makes the bones rot (Proverbs 14:30).

I look in the mirror. My two-year-old is crying in the background because we ran out of his favorite cereal. I cannot remember the last time I took a shower, and I just realized that I am out of the main ingredient to make dinner tonight. Sound familiar? How does God get you through these times?

Ep. 147: Caring for the Caregiver — Devotion

June 22, 2022

Devotion on Caregiving, Isaiah 41:10. 2 pages.

fear not, for I am with you;
    be not dismayed, for I am your God;
I will strengthen you, I will help you,
    I will uphold you with my righteous right hand (Isaiah 41:10).

Providing care for a loved one, whether an infant, a child, a teenager, a spouse, a parent, a grandparent, or a sibling can be a challenge. Without encouragement, a caregiver can become disheartened. How can we continue to let the light of Jesus’ love shine through us.

Ep. 144: Drive Wisely — Devotion

June 1, 2022

Devotion on Christian Living, Wisdom

Let the wise hear and increase in learning, and the one who understands obtain guidance … (Proverbs 1:5). 

Driver’s Education involves four stages: classroom, written test, observation, and behind the wheel. In the classroom phase, a beginner hears about driving. But hearing alone does not guarantee a passing grade on the written test. One must learn the material. Then as the student watches others drive, learning shifts to understanding. Knowing how to use a turn signal 200 feet before an intersection differs from visually recognizing where 200 feet actually begin. Finally when the pupil climbs behind the wheel, applied learning results in a successful trip. While no analogy is perfect, we see in Proverbs 1:5 a similar process for attaining wisdom.

Ep 142: Day By Day — Growing in the Lord — Devotion

Ep 142: Day By Day — Growing in the Lord — Devotion

May 18, 2022

I want to be a fireman when I grow up. I want to be a doctor or a nurse — a teacher — an astronaut — a police officer — a banker — and the list goes on and on. Children are always excited about what they can be and do when they are grown or mature. For them, the sky is the limit! How sad that, as adults, we often forget the excitement of growing and changing. 

This can be true of Christians also. Some believe that once we have been confirmed and attend church regularly, we are all grown-up, mature in our faith. A devout Christian lady who was a strong prayer warrior was often heard praying that God would “grow her.” A friend asked her one day why she always prayed that way. She replied, “One can never stop praying for the Lord to grow us in knowledge, faith, and trust.”

Day By Day — Growing in the Lord is a devotion by Judy Gordon, originally published by LWML.

Ep. 141: Rock of Safety — Devotion

Ep. 141: Rock of Safety — Devotion

May 11, 2022

Devotion on Comfort and Hope, Psalm 71:1–3. 

In you, O LORD, do I take refuge; let me never be put to shame! In your righteousness deliver me and rescue me; incline your ear to me, and save me! Be to me a rock of refuge, to which I may continually come; you have given the command to save me, for you are my rock and my fortress (Psalm 71:1–3).

When we ask for a rock of safety, we are asking God to protect us, to give us a special place we can go where we will not be afraid.

Ep. 140: Perfect Protection — Devotion

Ep. 140: Perfect Protection — Devotion

May 4, 2022

Devotion on Relationship with God, Trust, Psalm 91:1–2. 2 pages.

He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust”
(Psalm 91:1–2).

There is an even greater need for shelter and protection than physical shelter. It is the protection of our faith in our redeeming Lord and Savior. Our world is full of evil and sin, which is attacking us every day on every side seeking to lure us away from God.
