Daily Devotionals - September 2022


September 27

“Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding” (Proverbs 4:7).

True wisdom comes from God’s Word. When we make reading and studying His Word our priority, we gain access to every promise from God.

September 26

“And if ye have not been faithful in that which is another man’s, who shall give you that which is your own?” (Luke 16:12).

God doesn’t promote us until we’ve proven ourselves faithful with the little things. We need to be faithful where we are and with what He has given us, and He’ll bless us with much more.

September 25

“For by wise counsel thou shalt make thy war: and in multitude of counsellors there is safety” (Proverbs 24:6).

God wants us to seek His guidance before making decisions. He also desires for us to surround ourselves with other wise believers as a safeguard against the devil’s deceptions.

September 24

“All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works” (2 Timothy 3:16, 17).

We can always look into the Word of God for failproof instructions pertaining to life. When we need guidance or correction, the Word provides the answers we need to succeed.

September 23

“But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption” (1 Corinthians 1:30).

We’ve been redeemed and made righteous through Jesus. We have wisdom because of Him; wisdom is the ability to use the knowledge we have. We’ve also been sanctified because of Him. With Jesus, we’re never bankrupt; through Him, we have all we’ll ever need.

September 22

“Rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for him: fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way, because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass” (Psalm 37:7).

We must learn to rest in God and allow Him to manifest our hearts’ desires. He doesn’t want us to be jealous of wicked men who prosper. Waiting on Him to meet all of our needs allows Him to give us over and above what the world could ever provide.

September 21

“And these are they which are sown on good ground; such as hear the word, and receive it, and bring forth fruit, some thirtyfold, some sixty, and some an hundred” (Mark 4:20).

Our souls are fertile soil for the seed of God’s Word. God’s Word will flourish and produce a great harvest in every area of our lives. First, we must believe we receive what God’s Word says, so as to protect that seed.

September 20

“Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ: By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God” (Romans 5:1, 2).

God set us apart when we received Jesus as our Lord and Savior. Our decision was motivated by faith, which He honors with peace and grace.

September 19

“And Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in the midst of them, And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven. Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven” (Matthew 18:2-4).

Jesus gives clear instruction on how to enter the kingdom of heaven: be converted, be humble, and become like a child. Children are quick to believe. This is the way God wants us to be—quick to believe and accept His Word without question.

September 18

“…the just shall live by his faith” (Habakkuk 2:4).

Every Christian must live by faith. When we get born again, we move out of the world’s system of living by fear, doubt, and unbelief and into God’s system of love, faith, and trust. God does not look at our “good deeds” when He observes our life, but at our lives of faith.

September 17

“King David said this about him: ‘I see that the Lord is always with me. I will not be shaken, for he is right beside me. No wonder my heart is glad, and my tongue shouts his praises! My body rests in hope” (Acts 2:25, 26, NLT).

Joy comes from what we know; it comes when we realize that Jesus dwells within us through the person of the Holy Spirit. He is always with us.

September 16

“Then laid they their hands on them, and they received the Holy Ghost” (Acts 8:17).

Every born-again Christian should receive the baptism of the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in tongues. Speaking in tongues enables us to bypass our minds (with its doubts and fears) and pray perfect prayers directly to God. As a result, we’ll experience supernatural manifestation and the power of God as never before.

September 15

“For it is by free grace (God’s unmerited favor) that you are saved (delivered from judgment and made partakers of Christ’s salvation) through [your] faith. And this [salvation] is not of yourselves [of your own doing, it came not through your own striving], but it is the gift of God” (Ephesians 2:8, AMPC).

Our salvation includes deliverance from eternal judgment for our sins. Jesus has made everything we need available through our salvation, which includes healing, deliverance, peace, soundness, joy, preservation, and prosperity. We partake of what Jesus has done by faith.

September 14

“Wherefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and hope to the end for the grace that is to be brought unto you at the revelation of Jesus Christ” (1 Peter 1:13).

To be spiritually sober is to be alert and able to successfully fend off Satan’s attacks. By keeping our minds focused on God’s Word and speaking it aloud daily, we protect our minds and spirits.

September 13

“If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God” (Colossians 3:1-3).

When we become born again, the old person in us dies and we become new creations in Christ. As we focus our attention on the things of God, we overcome the desires of our flesh and position ourselves for a prosperous and victorious lifestyle.

September 12

“See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise, Redeeming the time, because the days are evil. Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is” (Ephesians 5:15-17).

It’s important to make the most of every opportunity to acknowledge God’s presence daily. This involves praying and seeking His guidance continually. We must capitalize on every moment we have to fellowship with Him and remember to do whatever He tells us.

September 11

“The Word became flesh and blood, and moved into the neighborhood. We saw the glory with our own eyes, the one-of-a-kind glory, like Father, like Son, Generous inside and out, true from start to finish” (John 1:14, MSG).

Jesus is the face of grace; He is grace personified. Whenever He comes on the scene, people are healed, raised from the dead, and delivered from all types of bondages—He’s the game changer. Jesus extends the love and grace of the Father despite our shortcomings.

September 10

“O give thanks unto the Lord; call upon his name: make known his deeds among the people” (Psalm 105:1).

One key to receiving from God is to continually give Him thanks for what He has already done. Make time today to praise Him for His goodness.

September 9

“But if you harbor bitter envy and selfish ambition in your hearts, do not boast about it or deny the truth. Such ‘wisdom’ does not come down from heaven but is earthly, unspiritual, demonic. For where you have envy and selfish ambition, there you find disorder and every evil practice” (James 3:14-16, NIV).

We must choose our battles wisely and refuse to allow the enemy to overtake our relationships. We shouldn’t allow our senses to rule us when relating with one another. God’s unconditional love causes us to believe the best of others and show them grace. The grace of God can be seen through our loving relationships.

September 8

“And we know (understand, recognize, are conscious of, by observation and by experience) and believe (adhere to and put faith in and rely on) the love God cherishes for us. God is love, and he who dwells and continues in love dwells and continues in God, and God dwells and continues in him” (1 John 4:16, AMPC).

Jesus loves all of us, and we all should have a revelation of His love. When we rely on and believe the Word, we believe in His love. There’s no deeper love than the love God has for us; His love is so deeply committed to us that He gave His only begotten Son.

September 7

“But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law, To redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons” (Galatians 4:4, 5).

God sent Jesus to earth at an appointed season. We, too, were born at the right time; we’re not a mistake. God has a plan just for us for this specific point in history; we should therefore seek His face daily to uncover His path for our lives.

September 6

“Save now, I beseech thee, O Lord: O Lord, I beseech thee, send now prosperity” (Psalm 118:25).

God operates in the “now zone”—He has already blessed us. Instead of waiting for Him to bless us some day, we are to believe, receive, and partake of what He has already done today.

September 5

“The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, To preach the acceptable year of the Lord” (Luke 4:18, 19).

The gospel is the Good News of Jesus Christ, who is anointed and empowered by the Holy Spirit to remove burdens and destroy yokes. There’s no better time than now to receive what He has done for us.

September 4

“I will go before thee, and make the crooked places straight: I will break in pieces the gates of brass, and cut in sunder the bars of iron: And I will give thee the treasures of darkness, and hidden riches of secret places, that thou mayest know that I, the Lord, which call thee by thy name, am the God of Israel” (Isaiah 45:2, 3).

When we’re in the will of God, we receive the benefit of divine protection and prosperity in every area of our lives. Our submission to His leading clears a path for victory.

September 3

“Again I tell you, if two of you on earth agree (harmonize together, make a symphony together) about whatever [anything and everything] they may ask, it will come to pass and be done for them by My Father in heaven” (Matthew 18:19, AMPC).

The effectiveness of our prayers is ensured when we stand in agreement with others. The devil is no match for two or more believers in agreement with one another. Joining forces with another believer in prayer is a powerful weapon.

September 2

“The thief comes only in order to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance (to the full, till it overflows)” (John 10:10, AMPC).

When we’re having trouble in our relationships, we should realize that there’s an unseen enemy at work. Satan tries desperately to destroy our relationship with God and with others. Our agreement and harmony within the body of Christ is a powerful force, which is why Satan so cunningly tries to destroy our relationships.

September 1

“And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man’s wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power: That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God” (1 Corinthians 2:4, 5).

Sharing Jesus with others is every believer’s responsibility. We don’t need fancy words, just the power that comes with God’s Word. When we become committed to developing our relationship with God and His Word, we can watch our times of sharing become a demonstration of His power.
