Daily Devotionals - September 2020


September 30

“For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth” (Hebrews 12:6).

God disciplines us because He loves us and wants to keep us on the right path.

September 29

“Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much” (James 5:16).

When we’re going through trials, we surround ourselves with other believers who can support us. We must also consistently pray for those who need healing and deliverance.

September 28

“If ye be reproached for the name of Christ, happy are ye; for the spirit of glory and of God resteth upon you: on their part he is evil spoken of, but on your part he is glorified” (1 Peter 4:14).

When ungodly people are negative toward us because of our beliefs, this provides an opportunity for us to rejoice. Persecution is part of the Christian life.

September 27

“Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he” (Proverbs 29:18).

If we can’t see what God is doing in our lives, we will get frustrated and give up. Having a vision empowers and enables us to see life the way God sees it.

September 26

“The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance” (2 Peter 3:9).

God is love, and He is bound by His Word. He wants everyone to come into the knowledge of Christ, and He will go to great lengths to get people born again.

September 25

“And this is the promise that he hath promised us, even eternal life” (1 John 2:25).

Eternal life is God’s gift to everyone who accepts Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.

September 24

“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 hears and answers our prayers. We must be confident that when we pray according to His Word, our prayers are answered.

September 23

“And this is love, that we walk after his commandments. This is the commandment, That, as ye have heard from the beginning, ye should walk in it” (2 John 6).

We demonstrate our love for God by obeying His Word.

September 22

“Beloved, follow not that which is evil, but that which is good. He that doeth good is of God: but he that doeth evil hath not seen God” (3 John 11).

We shouldn’t emulate the world or its way of thinking and doing things. If we’re children of God, we must emulate Him. Our lives can be a demonstration that we belong to Him.

September 21

“Keep yourselves in the love of God…” (Jude 21).

Remaining grounded in God’s love protects us from Satan. When we walk in love, we’re hidden in God’s light and the devil can’t touch us.

September 20

“But let him who glories glory in this: that he understands and knows Me [personally and practically, directly discerning and recognizing My character], that I am the Lord, Who practices loving-kindness, judgment, and righteousness in the earth, for in these things I delight, says the Lord” (Jeremiah 9:24, AMPC).

God practices loving-kindness because it’s His character. We must allow this to amplify our confidence in His love for us.

September 19

“And Peter said to him, Aeneas, Jesus Christ (the Messiah) [now] makes you whole. Get up and make your bed! And immediately [Aeneas] stood up” (Acts 9:34, AMPC).

If we can believe, God’s healing power produces instant results. Our faith is the determining factor.

September 18

“And immediately in the synagogues he proclaimed Jesus, saying, He is the Son of God!” (Acts 9:20, AMPC).

God is a deliverer. We need to share this awesome news with everyone we encounter.

September 17

“For if by one man’s offence death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ” (Romans 5:17).

When we make Jesus the Lord of our life, He gives us the grace and power to reign as kings.

September 16

“The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ” (1 Corinthians 15:56, 57).

When we receive Jesus as our Lord and Savior, we’re no longer subject to the law of sin and death. Through Jesus, we have victory over all vices and bad habits.

September 15

“These all continued with one accord in prayer and supplication, with the women, and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with his brethren” (Acts 1:14).

Having a “one accord” mindset makes us effective witnesses of the gospel, and creates an unhindered flow of the anointing of God.

September 14

“When you pass through the waters, I will be with you, and through the rivers, they will not overwhelm you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned or scorched, nor will the flame kindle upon you” (Isaiah 43:2, AMPC).

In life, we’re bound to go through difficult situations. However, God ensures we’re victorious regardless of the circumstance.

September 13

“The grass withers, the flower fades, but the word of our God will stand forever” (Isaiah 40:8, AMPC).

The Word of God is everlasting and eternal. The words of men will fall short, but God’s Word never fails; it always comes to pass.

September 12

“The LORD shall increase you more and more, you and your children” (Psalm 115:14).

God made a covenant promise to increase us and our children in every area. Increase is the standard for covenant people.

September 11

“But the path of the just is as the shining light, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day” (Proverbs 4:18).

When we live a life pleasing to God, He’s able to shine light on our path and give us clear direction.

September 10

“It is of the LORD’s mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not” (Lamentations 3:22).

God isn’t waiting to strike us down when we mess up. His love is always available and His mercy covers a multitude of sins.

September 9

“For He has delivered me out of every trouble, and my eye has looked [in triumph] on my enemies” (Psalm 54:7, AMPC).

When our back is against the wall, we can look to God for deliverance. He rescues us from everything that attempts to ensnare us.

September 8

“For in Jesus Christ neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision; but faith which worketh by love” (Galatians 5:6).

We mustn’t expect our faith to work until God’s love is operating in our lives. Faith won’t work without love.

September 7

“Now he that ministereth seed to the sower both minister bread for your food, and multiply your seed sown, and increase the fruits of your righteousness…” (2 Corinthians 9:10).

God is responsible for providing us with seed to sow. We can give cheerfully because we’ll always have something to give.

September 6

“Wherefore, holy brethren, partakers of the heavenly calling, consider the Apostle and High Priest of our profession, Christ Jesus” (Hebrews 3:1).

Our confessions are heard by heaven and executed by Jesus. His mission is to bring to pass the Word of God that we speak.

September 5

“In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth” (Genesis 1:1).

God is the creator of the universe, and everything in it. He is the power responsible for everything that exists.

September 4

“Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven” (Matthew 6:10).

When we pray for God’s will to be done on earth, we pray an accurate prayer. God is faithful to bring His Word to pass.

September 3

“Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil; And deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage” (Hebrews 2:14, 15).

Jesus annihilated Satan’s ability to torment us with fear. By meditating on God’s Word and believing with certainty that we don’t have to be afraid, we can live free from fear.

September 2

“I, even I, am he that blotteth out thy transgressions for mine own sake, and will not remember thy sins. Put me in remembrance: let us plead together: declare thou, that thou mayest be justified” (Isaiah 43:25, 26).

When we miss the mark, God offers us forgiveness, redemption, and cleansing. We repent and thank God for cleaning us up. We then remind Him of what He has already said about us in His Word.

September 1

“And you shall eat in plenty and be satisfied and praise the name of the Lord, your God, Who has dealt wondrously with you. And My people shall never be put to shame” (Joel 2:26, AMPC).

God is a God of abundance. When He shows us His goodness, we’ll have no choice but to praise Him for all He has done.
