Sin is the Symptom

Sin is the symptom it isn’t the problem or virus. When you find out why a person is sinning you will have more compassion for them and be able to help better. God showed Jonah why the people of Nineveh were sinning. Jonah 4

False Security

If you are security in anything this world has to offer besides Christ then you are living in False Security. The only security that is truly safe is in God alone.

Come Back to the Lord

In my previous devotion I talked about how God is running after us but we have a role to play and that is to turn and run back to God. If we don’t then there is no relationship it is just God running after us with us running away. Today’s devotion is all about returning to a loving, compassionate, forgiving God.
Joel 2

Relentless Lover

Talking about the prophet Hosea who God told to marry a prostitute named Gomer. When Gomer ran away the Lord told Hosea to go get her back. What He did for her will blow your mind. and just as Hosea went after Gomer the Lord relentlessly pursues us because he loves us and sees something in us we don’t see in ourselves
Hosea 3

Praying for a New Heart

The verse we talk about today is a perfect prayer to pray for a new heart. Not only can you pray this prayer over yourself but over others. “Lord remove my heart of stone and give me a heart of flesh”
Ezekiel 36

Even if People Listen or Not

If you spend any time with Jesus He will start putting people on your heart to speak to. Here is the deal God wants you to know it doesn’t matter if they listen to you or not. Your job is obedience. God’s job is results. He still wants to give them a message even if they listen or not . WHY BECAUSE HE LOVES THEM and is a relentless lover and cares for his creation!!!
Ezekiel 2

Our Compassionate God

In the middle of Jeremiah lamenting over Judah and Israel’s sin, their captivity, and how they turned from God Jeremiah had this realization just how amazing God was. His compassion, his mercies and his faithfulness.
Lamentations 3

God Can Be Found

I know that since God is invisible it feels like He can’t be found or He is too hard to find. Or sometimes we just don’t feel Him close to us. But He gives a promise to us in the Book of Jeremiah that if we seek the Lord HE WILL BE FOUND!
Jeremiah 29

Junk to Treasure

God is in the business of turning out Junk to treasure. He can take the ashes of our lives, the mourning we are going through, and the heaviness we feel and give us beauty, joy, and praise. Don’t you want to give your trash/junk to God well then I think you need to watch this video!
Isaiah 61

Devotion:Seem Eager to Know God’s Ways

I think as people we are pretty good as seeking God’s ways, counsel, advice, and guidance. We get that God knows more than us and we don’t have all the answers. But we we stink at is following through. When we hear what God has to say we still do it our own way. And that my friend is when you “SEEM” eager to know God’s ways.
Isaiah 58:2
