Daily Devotionals - February 2019

23Feb

February 23

“I make known the end from the beginning, from ancient times, what is still to come. I say,‘My purpose will stand, and I will do all that I please’” (Isaiah 46:10, NIV).

God has always existed, even before the beginning of time. He did not come out of the beginning; the beginning came out of Him.
22Feb

February 22

“For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men” (Titus 2:11).

If grace, alone, saved, then everyone would be saved. However, this is not the case because not everyone has chosen to claim by faith what grace has made available.
21Feb

February 21

“To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation” (2 Corinthians 5:19).

Believers have received mercy and forgiveness for their mistakes. When we trust in Jesus and what He did, God deals with us according to His goodness, not according to what we do.
20Feb

February 20

“That the communication of thy faith may become effectual by the acknowledging of every good thing which is in you in Christ Jesus” (Philemon 1:6).

Faith doesn’t cause a positive response from God; it is our positive response to Him. We communicate our faith when we acknowledge everything God did for us through Jesus.
19Feb

February 19

“Therefore, [inheriting] the promise is the outcome of faith and depends [entirely] on faith, in order that it might be given as an act of grace (unmerited favor), to make it stable and valid and guaranteed to all his descendants—not only to the devotees and adherents of the Law, but also to those who share the faith of Abraham, who is [thus] the father of us all” (Romans 4:16, AMPC).

Faith and grace are connected. We cannot have one without the other.
18Feb

February 18

“By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God” (Romans 5:2).

To see manifestations in our lives, we should always balance faith with grace. Our faith in the finished works of Jesus gives us access to everything that He made available to us by His grace.
17Feb

February 17

“And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free” (John 8:32).

True leadership is not about threats or punishment. It is about giving others the freedom to exercise their respective God-given talents and abilities to accomplish the task at hand.
16Feb

February 16

“And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth” (John 1:14).

Jesus Christ flawlessly modeled God’s love and grace. His love for us is an indisputable truth on which we can depend.
15Feb

February 15

“Obey them that have the rule over you, and submit yourselves: for they watch for your souls, as they that must give account, that they may do it with joy, and not with grief: for that is unprofitable for you” (Hebrews 13:17).

Obedience is a godly trait. Jesus perfectly demonstrated this when He obeyed and submitted to God.
14Feb

February 14

“Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning” (James 1:17).

Unlike the “gifts” the world gives us, blessings from God have no shadow or down side to them. We must not settle for a shadow when we can have the real thing.
13Feb

February 13

“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me” (Philippians 4:13, NKJV).

Using our own limited resources apart from God’s strength and power leads to failure and frustration. To see true success we must rely on God, and let Him work in and through us.
12Feb

February 12

“Not that we are fit (qualified and sufficient in ability) of ourselves to form personal judgments or to claim or count anything as coming from us, but our power and ability and sufficiency are from God” (2 Corinthians 3:5, AMPC).

We could never be our own supply source because of our limitations apart from God. We get all we need from Him.
11Feb

February 11

“Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new” (2 Corinthians 5:17).

Living according to the world’s standards limits us severely, with boundaries and borders separating us by gender. Living in Christ puts us all on equal footing and makes us one.
10Feb

February 10

“And when Jesus came to the place, he looked up, and saw him, and said unto him, Zacchaeus, make haste, and come down; for to day I must abide at thy house” (Luke 19:5).

The spirit of inferiority is always working to make us feel as if we’re not good enough, but God’s presence drives out this evil spirit. Zacchaeus was not well-liked and must have felt inferior to others, but Jesus welcomed Zacchaeus without judging
09Feb

February 9

“Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen” (Matthew 28:20).

The Holy Spirit is with us always, even when the spirit of inferiority tries to put us in bondage. God’s Spirit empowers us to defeat any feelings of inferiority by reminding us what His Word says about biblical equality.
08Feb

February 8

“For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus” (Romans 3:23, 24).

We all need Jesus to redeem us and make us worthy to stand before God. We must not take this passage out of context; although we were sinners before accepting Jesus, being born again makes us right with God.
07Feb

February 7

“Male and female created he them; and blessed them, and called their name Adam, in the day when they were created” (Genesis 5:2).

The inequality we see in the world today is not God’s will; His original plan was for men and women to be in a relationship with Him as equals. When we believe in what Jesus did to restore male-female relationships, we all walk in the blessings.
06Feb

February 6

“And have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him” (Colossians 3:10).

Jesus Christ has redeemed us on all levels, and one of the benefits of this redemption is our ability to operate as individuals made in God’s image. This renewal is similar to hitting the “reset” button on our lives so that we can live according to God’s will.
05Feb

February 5

“He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings” (Psalm 40:2).

God delivers us from whatever bad situation we fall into through our own mistakes and poor choices. When we trust Him to direct us to the right path in life, He brings us hope and success, and steers us clear of trouble.
04Feb

February 4

“I have set the Lord always before me: because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved” (Psalm 16:8).

Trusting in God for our protection gives us real and lasting security. When we lean on Him, nothing that happens can move us from our place of safety.
03Feb

February 3

“And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us: And if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him” (1 John 5:14, 15).

God is a good God, and He earnestly wants to give us the things we pray for. Faith takes what grace has already made available to us; a prayer uttered in faith carries great power and authority.
02Feb

February 2

“To make it your ambition and definitely endeavor to live quietly and peacefully, to mind your own affairs, and to work with your hands, as we charged you” (1 Thessalonians 4:11, AMPC).

Living a quiet and peaceable life, and not being a busybody, is pleasing to God. We find peace when we avoid creating drama by meddling in others’ affairs and focus instead on doing God’s will for us.
01Feb

February 1

“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).

When we need to pray but can’t put into words what we’re feeling, praying in the Spirit frees us from having to depend on our limited intellectual knowledge. The Holy Spirit helps us to pray about things we don’t even know about.
