Daily Devotional – Though Hand Join in Hand the Wicked shall not be Unpunished

“As RIGHTEOUSNESS tendeth to LIFE: so he that pursueth EVIL pursueth it to his own DEATH. They that are of a FROWARD heart are ABOMINATION to the LORD: but such as are UPRIGHT in their way are his DELIGHT. Though HAND JOIN IN HAND, the WICKED shall not be UNPUNISHED: but the SEED of the RIGHTEOUS shall be DELIVERED.” (Pro 11:19-21)

Who are the seed of the righteous? “Not as though the word of God hath taken none effect. For they are not all Israel, which are of Israel: Neither, because they are the seed of Abraham, are they all children: but, In Isaac shall thy seed be called. That is, They which are the children of the flesh, these are not the children of God: but the children of the promise are counted for the seed.” (Rm 9:6-8) “Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, And to thy seed, which is Christ.” (Gal 3:16)

Daily Devotional – Receive my Instruction

“Receive my instruction, and not silver; and knowledge rather than choice gold. For wisdom is better than rubies; and all the things that may be desired are not to be compared to it.” (Pro 8:10-11) “I lead in the way of righteousness, in the midst of the paths of judgment.” (Pro 8:20)

If God were to ask you as he asked Solomon “Ask what I shall give thee” (1 Kings 3:5) would your reply be selfless as Solomon’s answer? Have you ever thought about it? Do you know what Solomon’s answer was to God? “And now, O LORD my God, thou hast made thy servant king instead of David my father: and I am but a little child: I know not how to go out or come in. And thy servant is in the midst of thy people which thou hast chosen, a great people, that cannot be numbered nor counted for multitude. Give therefore thy servant an understanding heart to judge thy people, that I may discern between good and bad: for who is able to judge this thy so great a people? And the speech pleased the Lord, that Solomon had asked this thing. And God said unto him, Because thou hast asked this thing, and hast not asked for thyself long life; neither hast asked riches for thyself, nor hast asked the life of thine enemies; but hast asked for thyself understanding to discern judgment; Behold, I have done according to thy words: lo, I have given thee a wise and an understanding heart; so that there was none like thee before thee, neither after thee shall any arise like unto thee.” (1 Kings 3:7-12) “For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.” (Mt 6:21)

Daily Devotional – For the LORD giveth wisdom

“For the LORD giveth wisdom: out of his mouth cometh knowledge and understanding. He layeth up sound wisdom for the righteous: he is a buckler to them that walk uprightly. He keepeth the paths of judgment, and preserveth the way of his saints. Then shalt thou understand righteousness, and judgment, and equity; yea, every good path.” (Pro 2:6-9)

Have you been studying the Bible? We just learned “the LORD giveth wisdom: out of his mouth cometh knowledge and understanding.” The Word of God, the Bible, is how you will gain wisdom because it was spoken from the mouth of God to his servants. “We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts: Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.” (2 Peter 1:19-21) Jesus said, “Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me. And ye will not come to me, that ye might have life.” (Jn 5:39-40) The Bereans searched the scriptures daily and many of them were saved because they believed the words of the Apostle Paul and Silas. “And the brethren immediately sent away Paul and Silas by night unto Berea: who coming thither went into the synagogue of the Jews. These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so. Therefore many of them believed; also of honourable women which were Greeks, and of men, not a few.” (Acts 17:10-12) The Apostle Peter knew the Apostle Paul was writing scripture from the mouth of God. “Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless. And account that the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation; even as our beloved brother Paul also according to the wisdom given unto him hath written unto you; As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction.” (2 Peter 3:14-16) We are told to “Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.” (2 Tim 2:15) If you desire wisdom, knowledge, and understanding then you must faithfully, prayerfully, and diligently study the Word of God the Bible and seek for it.

Daily Devotional – When Wisdom Entereth into thine Heart

“My son, attend unto my wisdom, and bow thine ear to my understanding: That thou mayest regard discretion, and that thy lips may keep knowledge.” (Pro 5:1-2) “When wisdom entereth into thine heart, and knowledge is pleasant unto thy soul; Discretion shall preserve thee, understanding shall keep thee. To deliver thee from the way of the evil man, from the man that speaketh froward things.” (Pro 2:10-12)

When is the last time you prayed and sought God for wisdom and understanding? Is Godly knowledge pleasant to your soul? Do you know to whom God will teach knowledge? “Whom shall he teach knowledge? and whom shall he make to understand doctrine? them that are weaned from the milk, and drawn from the breasts. For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little:” (Isa 28:9-10) This is how the entire Bible is set up. You must pray and seek God for wisdom, knowledge, and understanding. “Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.” (2 Tim 2:15)

Daily Devotional – What you Believe Determines your Behavior to a Given Situation

What you believe determines your behavior to a given situation. You CAN NOT change how others behave, but you can change how you respond to their behavior.

Have you exercised your freedom of choice to behave yourself in a righteous, upright manner when dealing with other people’s behavior? What you believe if you are a Christian should reflect the Bible of which you learn of Christ’s behavior and teaching. “But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust. For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do not even the publicans the same? And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more than others? do not even the publicans so? Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.” (Mt 5:44-48)

Daily Devotional – Who is a Wise Man and Endued with Knowledge

“Who is a wise man and endued with knowledge among you? let him shew out of a good conversation his works with meekness of wisdom. But if ye have bitter envying and strife in your hearts, glory not, and lie not against the truth. This wisdom descendeth not from above, but is earthly, sensual, devilish. For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work. But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy. And the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace of them that make peace.” (James 3:13-18)

How do you measure up to the wisdom that is from above? Godly wisdom “is first pure”! Is holy producing righteousness, uprightness, and virtue within those who possess it. Then peaceable! Godly wisdom is peaceable! “Let us therefore follow after the things which make for peace, and things wherewith one may edify another.” (Rm 14:19) “Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord:” (Heb 12:14) Godly wisdom is gentle, mild, moderate! Godly wisdom is easy to be intreated, persuaded, and compliant! As long as it fully aligns up with the scriptures! Godly wisdom is full of mercy! “And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you.” (Eph 4:32) Godly wisdom is full of good fruits! “Being filled with the fruits of righteousness, which are by Jesus Christ, unto the glory and praise of God.” (Phil 1:11) Godly wisdom is without partiality! “But if ye have respect to persons, ye commit sin, and are convinced of the law as transgressors.” (James 2:9) Godly wisdom is without hypocrisy! “And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say?” (Lk 6:46) “And the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace of them that make peace.” (Jms 3:18)

Daily Devotional – To be Spiritually Minded

“The fear of the LORD is a fountain of life, to depart from the snares of death.” (Pro 14:27) “For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be. So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God.” (Rms 8:6-8)

Are you a spiritually minded person? To be a spiritually minded person you must first have the Holy Spirit. Do you have the Holy Spirit evidenced with the speaking with other tongues as the Spirit gives the utterance according to scripture? “But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.” (Rm 8:9) It is vitally important to know if you have the Holy Spirit. These believers in Jesus Christ who were baptized didn’t have the Holy Spirit until the Apostles laid hands on them and prayed that they would receive it. “Now when the apostles which were at Jerusalem heard that Samaria had received the word of God, they sent unto them Peter and John: Who, when they were come down, prayed for them, that they might receive the Holy Ghost: (For as yet he was fallen upon none of them: only they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus.)” (Acts 8:14-16) The sign that you have received the Holy Spirit is the evidence of speaking with other tongues as the Spirit gives the utterance as was prophesied. “For with stammering lips and another tongue will he speak to this people. To whom he said, This is the rest wherewith ye may cause the weary to rest; and this is the refreshing: yet they would not hear.” (Isa 28:11-12) “And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.” (Acts 2:3-4)
