Daily Devotionals - January 2018

“Remember ye not the former things, neither consider the things of old. Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert” (Isaiah 43:18, 19).

The devil wants to use our past to cause affliction to our future, but we are to focus on what lies ahead, not behind us. God opens doors that were once closed tight, and He makes opportunities when there formerly were none.

“We are human, but we don’t wage war as humans do. We use God’s mighty weapons, not worldly weapons, to knock down the strongholds of human reasoning and to destroy false arguments. We destroy every proud obstacle that keeps people from knowing God. We capture their rebellious thoughts and teach them to obey Christ” (2 Corinthians 10:3-5, NLT).

We are in spiritual warfare against the enemy, and the Word of God is our greatest and most powerful weapon. By faith, Christians maintain the victory that Jesus died to obtain.

“I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing” (John 15:5).

Jesus is the reason for our ability to do anything good. We can’t help but succeed when we attach ourselves to Him.

Y por quien recibimos la gracia y el apostolado para la obediencia a la fe en todas las naciones por amor de su nombre” (Romanos 1:5).

Antes de que Jesús llegara, las personas requerían ser obedientes a la letra de la ley, a pesar del estado de sus corazones. Después de su muerte y resurrección, podemos obedecer nuestra fe en lo que la gracia hizo a través del Espíritu Santo.

“Through Christ, God has given us the privilege and authority as apostles to tell Gentiles everywhere what God has done for them, so that they will believe and obey him, bringing glory to his name” (Romans 1:5, NLT).

Before Jesus came, the people were required to be obedient to the letter of the law, regardless of the state of their hearts. After His death and resurrection, we can obey our faith in what grace did for us through the prompting of the Holy Spirit.

“There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love. We love him, because he first loved us” (1 John 4:18, 19).

Under the Law of Moses, the people lived in fear because of the curse that sin brought. Jesus came to earth, died, and was resurrected to defeat sin forever and demonstrate perfect love for us.
12Jan

January 12, 2018

“And ye shall eat in plenty, and be satisfied, and praise the name of the Lord your God, that hath dealt wondrously with you: and my people shall never be ashamed” (Joel 2:26).

Christ came so that we would never have to suffer lack or insufficiency, but instead enjoy plentiful abundance in our lives. He also came to destroy shame and guilt, and believers never have to be ashamed to be called by His name.
11Jan

“May he equip you with all you need for doing his will. May he produce in you, through the power of Jesus Christ, every good thing that is pleasing to him. All glory to him forever and ever! Amen” (Hebrews 13:21, NLT).

It is God’s will for us to be equipped and enabled to overcome adversity in life, to succeed and thrive, and be witnesses for the Gospel of Grace. Christ living in us makes this possible.

“Instead of your shame you shall have double honor, And instead of confusion they shall rejoice in their portion. Therefore in their land they shall possess double; Everlasting joy shall be theirs” (Isaiah 61:7, NKJV).

God promises that when the spirit of shame comes against us, trusting in His Word not only removes it but replaces it with twice as much honor from Him. God is our portion, and His will is for us to have everlasting joy in Him.

Di mi cuerpo a los heridores, y mis mejillas a los que me mesaban la barba; no escondí mi rostro de injurias y de esputos. Porque Jehová el Señor me ayudará, por tanto no me avergoncé; por eso puse mi rostro como un pedernal, y sé que no seré avergonzado” (Isaías 50:6, 7).

Si no tenemos cuidado, podemos sucumbir a la vergüenza de nuestros errores del pasado. Dios envió a su Hijo para remover permanentemente la vergüenza de nosotros, y tenemos la victoria sobre ello cuando confiamos en lo que Él hizo.

“I gave my back to the smiters, and my cheeks to them that plucked off the hair: I hid not my face from shame and spitting. For the Lord God will help me; therefore shall I not be confounded: therefore have I set my face like a flint, and I know that I shall not be ashamed” (Isaiah 50:6, 7).

If we’re not careful, we can succumb to shame over our past mistakes. God sent His Son to permanently take shame away from us, and we have victory over it when we trust in what He did.
08Jan

January 8, 2018

“Oh, give thanks to the Lord, for He is good! For His mercy endures forever. Let the redeemed of the Lord say so, Whom He has redeemed from the hand of the enemy” (Psalm 107:1, 2, NKJV).

Jesus’ death and resurrection bought salvation for us, and His sacrifice impacts our lives right now, when it makes a real difference to us. We can verbally confess our redemption through Christ regardless of what issues we encounter.
07Jan

January 7, 2018

“Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid” (John 14:27).

The stress, worry, fear, and anxiety the devil throws our way can hurt and even kills us, which is why God tells us to avoid them. Believers have been given authority over these negative emotions.
06Jan

January 6, 2018

“Let them shout for joy and be glad, Who favor my righteous cause; And let them say continually, ‘Let the Lord be magnified, Who has pleasure in the prosperity of His servant’” (Psalm 35:27, NKJV).

It’s not God’s will for us to operate in lack or insufficiency. When we trust Him, He will cause prosperity in every area of our lives.
05Jan

“These things we also speak, not in words which man’s wisdom teaches but which the Holy Spirit teaches, comparing spiritual things with spiritual. But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned” (1 Corinthians 2:13, 14, NKJV).

To truly understand the Scriptures the way God intended, we must rely on His Spirit for proper interpretation. Without His guidance, what we read would be gibberish to us.

Ante todo, tengan presente que ninguna profecía de la Escritura surge de la interpretación particular de nadie” (2 Pedro 1:20 NVI).

Dios nos dio al Espíritu Santo para enseñarnos la verdadera intención de Su Palabra. Esto era para evitar confusión, de modo que no tendríamos que depender de interpretaciones humanas para discernir.

“Knowing this first, that no prophecy of Scripture is of any private interpretation, for prophecy never came by the will of man, but holy men of God spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit” (2 Peter 1:20, 21, NKJV).

God gave us the Holy Spirit to teach us the true intent of His Word. This was to avoid confusion, so that we would not have to rely on human interpretations to discern His meaning.
03Jan

January 3, 2018

“I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me” (Philippians 4:13).

Jesus Christ’s sacrifice on the cross delivered us from the curses that resulted from sin in the garden of Eden, and made all of God’s blessings available to us. This includes the ability to easily accomplish things with which others struggle.
02Jan

January 2, 2018

“This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun!” (2 Corinthians 5:17, NLT).

When Jesus died on the cross to take away our sins, this act not only did something to the sin with which we previously struggled, it also did something significant to us. When we accept Him, we become entirely new beings; our old, sinful self is gone.

“Whom we preach, warning every man, and teaching every man in all wisdom; that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus” (Colossians 1:28).

The Bible is not simply a book that shows us how bad we are. It is the ultimate truth and a reminder of how perfect we are in Christ Jesus regardless of our personal imperfections.
