Daily Devotionals - December 2019

09Dec

December 9

“There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death” (Proverbs 14:12).

There’s no way we can succeed without the guidance of the Holy Spirit to tell us which path in life to take. He can see when trouble is brewing ahead of us, and steer us away from it.

December 8

“Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore” (Psalm 16:11).

The peace and joy we all seek isn’t found in the world, but only through a relationship with Christ. We find success when we let Him guide us through life.
07Dec

December 7

“For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their iniquities will I remember no more” (Hebrews 8:12).

Religion still teaches the law, which says to fear God’s punishment if we fall short or miss the mark. However, under grace, He chooses to show us mercy, compassion, and forgiveness.
06Dec

December 6

“Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution” (2 Timothy 3:12).

The world doesn’t know Christ; therefore, we can expect to encounter persecution for living godly lives. When we verbally declare God’s Word, we may receive the same treatment that Jesus received during His earthly ministry.
05Dec

December 5

“For this is as the waters of Noah unto me: for as I have sworn that the waters of Noah should no more go over the earth; so have I sworn that I would not be wroth with thee, nor rebuke thee” (Isaiah 54:9).

God promised to never destroy the earth by flood again. This was a demonstration of His love and a foreshadowing of the new covenant that He would establish with His people—a covenant of grace.
04Dec

December 4

“Forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so also do ye” (Colossians 3:13).

Under the law, man had to forgive others, first, before God could forgive him. Under grace, we’ve already been forgiven; this enables us to forgive others.
03Dec

December 3

“Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree” (Galatians 3:13).

Under the law, God blessed the people if they kept every part of it; otherwise, they would be punished. Now that we’re redeemed from the curses the law brought, we can benefit from all the blessings that remain.
02Dec

December 2

“For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ” (John 1:17).

The covenant of the law was true and applicable for the time it was intended to be in force, but when Jesus came He replaced the law with grace. To experience God’s best in our lives we must live under the correct covenant.
01Dec

December 1

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

Trying to do the right thing under the Law of Moses only causes us to struggle more. By comparison, grace does perfectly what the law could never do: it makes us righteous in God’s eyes.
