In our darkest hour in our hardest trials God will send encouragement to help us keep going. David was going through a hard time but the Lord used a Benjaminite named Amanai who spoke words of encouragement to David
1 Chronicles 12
Devotion: Problems When You Don’t Discipline
Through out the Bible it takes about disciplining your children and when you don’t there will be problems. King David never ever disciplined one of his sons and because he didn’t there were consequences. Discipline is Love. And God loves us enough to discipline us and He can teach us how to discipline our own children.
1 Kings 1
There are pretty big dangers to not confronting when there is a problem. Whether confronting family members, your own children, co-workers, friends, etc. When you don’t you are more communicating that it is okay and things can spiral out into even more problems.
David was a pretty great guy but the biggest issue he had was not confronting his children when they did wrong and because of it more and more problems happened.
2 Samuel 13
The number 1 question I get asked is How Do I hear from God? How do you hear God speak? In this video I talk about the 8 different ways God can communicate and a little tip at the end to be able to recognize it more and more
When you choose to sin even though you know God says not to and the Bible says not to but you do any ways there is a time after that that I like to call the Grace Period. The Grace Period is a short amount of time where God wants you to repent, wants you to make things right, wants you to confess your sin but when that time runs out there will be a rebuke, discipline, and maybe even consequences. When King David slept with Bathsheba another man’s wife God gave him 9 months to a year to repent and make things right but instead David kept getting deeper and deeper into his sin until God finally stepped in and rebuked him as well as having a couple consequences.
2 Samuel 11
This world can be so cruel and though we have given our lives to God doesn’t mean we are exempt from Tragedy. But what God will do is making all things work for the good of those who love Him and He can redeem any situation. Naomi knew tragedy good and well yet even before tragedy happened God had a plan to turn it into something so beautiful
When we don’t have God’s truth or a standard to live by then we will do what is right in our own eyes. And it can get pretty bizarre, pretty quickly. The book of Judges has some very weird and horrible things that went on that does not make sense until you read at the end of the book it says “They did what was right in their own eyes.”
I love Walking By Faith! For 11 years I was a missionary that never got paid, trusted God for everything and walked by faith believing God would take care of everything I needed whether personal needs or ministry needs. I wrote my journey down in a book called “One Yes” and in this video I share a little bit about what I wrote

If you are alive you are going to have responsibilities and they can pile up on you. If you do not delegate them out then you will eventually burn out! Moses looked like he was on the path of burn out until his Father-In-Law Jethro gave me some very good advice that we can all use.
We don’t always realize that when we are obedient to the Lord that it not only affects the people God sends us to but those who are watching and hearing the stories of God’s movement in our lives. In this devotion we come from the story of when Jethro, Moses’ father-in-law heard all that the Lord had done for His people through Moses and how it affected his view of God Almighty.
