Daily Devotionals - June 2019

June 16

And may the God of peace Himself sanctify you through and through [separate you from profane things, make you pure and wholly consecrated to God]; and may your spirit and soul and body be preserved sound and complete [and found] blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ (the Messiah)(1 Thessalonians 5:23, AMPC).

Being born again separates us from the world and protects us from the evil that threatens others. As triune beings, we have the Holy Spirit, Himself, working on our behalf to keep us safe.

“For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s” (1 Corinthians 6:20).

Jesus paid the ultimate price for us to enjoy good health and wholeness on every level. This gives us a good reason to take care of our physical and emotional health, and respect ourselves.

For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s(1 Corinthians 6:20).

Jesus paid the ultimate price for us to enjoy good health and wholeness on every level. This gives us a good reason to take care of our physical and emotional health, and respect ourselves.

“Moreover the law entered, that the offence might abound. But where sin abounded, grace did much more abound” (Romans 5:20).

When we’re living under God’s grace, we no longer have to worry that committing a sinful act will cut us off from Him the way it did under the Law of Moses. Grace is much more powerful than any mistake we could make; we can never sin away our righteousness.

“The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly” (John 10:10).

If we don’t know God’s true nature, we can be quick to blame Him for bad things that happen. There’s a devil loose in the world who wants to inflict pain and suffering, and erode our quality of life; God, however, wants the best for us.

“Or do you despise the riches of His goodness, forbearance, and longsuffering, not knowing that the goodness of God leads you to repentance?” (Romans 2:4, NKJV).

Repentance does not mean simply apologizing, but instead undergoing a change of mind and heart that produces changed behavior. An encounter with God has that type of power.

“O fear the Lord, ye his saints: for there is no want to them that fear him” (Psalm 34:9).

Fearing God” is not about being afraid of Him; it’s a decision to trust, honor, revere, and respect Him. God-fearing people are set apart from the world; when others are living in lack, insufficiency, and fear, God’s people are living in abundance, prosperity, safety, and peace.

“The fear of the Lord tendeth to life: and he that hath it shall abide satisfied; he shall not be visited with evil” (Proverbs 19:23).

A willingness to respect God’s Word, and to value it higher than anything else, will be reflected in our quality of life. Living according to the Word gives us safety and security.

June 9

“Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof” (Proverbs 18:21)

Our words are powerful. What we say can either bring us into alignment with God’s Word, or create problems and issues for ourselves.

08Jun

June 8

“Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered” (Romans 8:26).

The world may not understand praying in tongues, but it actually strengthens us spiritually and improves our prayer lives. A great deal of trust is required to yield our tongues to the Holy Spirit; this increases our faith.

07Jun

June 7

“(As it is written, I have made thee a father of many nations,) before him whom he believed, even God, who quickeneth the dead, and calleth those things which be not as though they were” (Romans 4:17).

We have the power to speak things into existence, even when we don’t see any physical manifestations yet. This ability is something the world doesn’t understand, but a relationship with God enables us to call forth something out of nothing.

06Jun

June 6

“Be not forgetful to entertain strangers: for thereby some have entertained angels unawares” (Hebrews 13:2).

We never know who we might come into contact with when we extend hospitality to others. Showing God’s love to others should be a routine, automatic response to the love we have received from Him.

05Jun

June 5

“Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called, and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses” (1 Timothy 6:12).

The enemy is after our faith; he is trying to cause us to stop trusting in God and start trusting in him. We fight the good fight of faith when we publicly profess our faith in God.
04Jun

June 4

“That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved” (Romans 10:9).

The Word of God is full of promises, and we can use the power of our spoken words to turn those promises into confessions. When we confess our faith in Christ, we allow Him to bring us salvation.
03Jun

June 3

“The Lord shall cause thine enemies that rise up against thee to be smitten before thy face: they shall come out against thee one way, and flee before thee seven ways” (Deuteronomy 28:7).

We see tangible results when we rely on God instead of ourselves in times of trouble. Whoever chooses to make us their enemy will be defeated.
02Jun

June 2

“And he believed in the Lord; and he counted it to him for righteousness” (Genesis 15:6).

We could never do enough good things to earn right-standing with God; this only comes by faith. This knowledge takes all pressure off of us to perform in an endless cycle of self-effort.

June 1

“My son, hear the instruction of thy father, and forsake not the law of thy mother: For they shall be an ornament of grace unto thy head, and chains about thy neck” (Proverbs 1:8, 9).

Satan attempts to destroy the family unit by attacking young people with ungodly influences designed to alienate them from their parents. Children who obey the Word of God receive protection from these attacks, and bless the entire family.
