Daily Devotionals - April 2019


April 19

“Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever” (1 Peter 1:23).

The Word of God is the incorruptible seed that never fails. When we plant it in our hearts and let it take root and grow, it will always produce results.

April 18

“Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap” (Galatians 6:7).

Whatever we sow into others’ lives—whether it’s our time, our talents, or the money God blesses us with—will always come back to us. This is a simple concept, but one that the world doesn’t understand.

April 17

“Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee” (Isaiah 26:3).

The world is anything but peaceful, because it doesn’t know God. Trusting in His love for us gives us total and lasting peace, which is something that the world doesn’t have.

April 16

“Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world” (1 John 4:17).

Believers are perfected by God’s love, not by self-effort. When have a relationship with Jesus, we have the same power and authority that He has.

April 15

“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).

As born-again Christians, looking back at the way we used to be and comparing our old selves with our new selves can be eye-opening. Our old, sinful selves are gone, and the forgiveness we’ve received from God gives our lives new meaning.

April 14

“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).

Peace is what shields us from the junk in life than causes others stress and anxiety. We need the kind of peace only God can give us, which is not found in the world.

April 13

“And out of them shall proceed thanksgiving and the voice of them that make merry: and I will multiply them, and they shall not be few; I will also glorify them, and they shall not be small” (Jeremiah 30:19).

Living in a constant state of thankfulness to God blesses our lives and elevates us to a new level. Being thankful allows us to receive and bear plentiful harvests of spiritual fruit.

April 12

“For all [these] things are [taking place] for your sake, so that the more grace (divine favor and spiritual blessing) extends to more and more people and multiplies through the many, the more thanksgiving may increase [and redound] to the glory of God” (2 Corinthians 4:15, AMPC).

A decision to live a life of thanksgiving results in peace and abundant blessings. The grace that God extends to us causes us to be overwhelmed by the overflow of His goodness, if we choose to accept it.

April 11

“But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:19).

When we encounter lack, insufficiency, or anything else that is not God’s will, we can speak His Word over the situation. This works not only in our finances, but also in other areas of our lives.

April 10

“O give thanks unto the Lord, for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever” (Psalm 107:1).

God’s nature is merciful, compassionate, and forgiving. His true nature was perfectly expressed in Jesus Christ.

April 9

“In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you” (1 Thessalonians 5:18).

A grateful attitude is the proper mindset for a Christian. If we pause for a moment and think of all the things God has done for us, and continues to do, it’s easy to be thankful.

April 8

“Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits: Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases” (Psalm 103:2, 3).

Healing is one of the benefits of the salvation package God offers us; forgiveness is another. We receive these blessings, and many others, by faith.

April 7

“But unto you who revere and worshipfully fear My name shall the Sun of Righteousness arise with healing in His wings and His beams, and you shall go forth and gambol like calves [released] from the stall and leap for joy” (Malachi 4:2, AMPC).

Healing on all levels ultimately comes from God. Being in His presence not only heals us physically, but also brings us great joy.

April 6

“Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever” (Hebrews 13:8).

Jesus Christ is the embodiment of God’s nature, and we can be sure that God will never change. No matter what situations we may find ourselves in or what mistakes we make, His love for us remains constant.

April 5

“Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come” (John 16:13).

The Holy Spirit only speaks God’s Word; we’ll never go wrong when we listen to Him. Not everything we hear from others is reliable or accurate, but the Holy Spirit will always tell us the truth in love.

April 4

“Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost” (Romans 15:13).

Trusting God in all situations gives us peace, joy, and confident hope for the future. This is something the world doesn’t have, because it knows neither God nor His Holy Spirit.

April 3

“But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you” (John 14:26, NKJV).

There are some things we need to know that the world will never be able to teach us. The Holy Spirit administers the new covenant of grace; He teaches and convinces us about God’s love.

April 2

“Joyful is the person who finds wisdom, the one who gains understanding” (Proverbs 3:13, NLT).

Joy comes from what we know about who God is. A relationship with Jesus, who is the perfect expression of God’s nature, gives us an understanding of God’s love, mercy, and grace.

April 1

“Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you your heart’s desires” (Psalm 37:4, NLT).

When we seek God continually and meditate on His Word, our wills begin to conform to His will. Letting God influence us this way causes us to begin asking for the things that please Him; He promises He will give us what we pray for.
