Daily Devotional – A Light to Lighten the Gentiles

“Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.” (Mt 1:23) “A light to lighten the Gentiles, and the glory of thy people Israel.” (Lk 2:32) “And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.” (Jn 3:19)

Are you a lover of the light or a lover of darkness? Your deeds will tell without you even speaking. Your actions will reveal of whom you serve? “Ye are our epistle written in our hearts, known and read of all men: Forasmuch as ye are manifestly declared to be the epistle of Christ ministered by us, written not with ink, but with the Spirit of the living God; not in tables of stone, but in fleshy tables of the heart.” (2 Cor 3:2-3) “Hell is naked before him, and destruction hath no covering.” (Job 26:6) “For every tree is known by his own fruit. For of thorns men do not gather figs, nor of a bramble bush gather they grapes.” (Lk 6:44) “For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight: but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have to do.” (Heb 4:12-13)

Daily Devotional – Declare his Doings among the People

“But thou, Bethlehem Ephratah, though thou be little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of thee shall he come forth unto me that is to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth have been from of old, from everlasting.” (Mic 5:2) “Therefore with joy shall ye draw water out of the wells of salvation. And in that day shall ye say, Praise the LORD, call upon his name, declare his doings among the people, make mention that his name is exalted.” (Isa 12:3-4)

Anybody want to declare his doings among the people that his name be exalted? “And when he had gathered all the chief priests and scribes of the people together, he demanded of them where Christ should be born. And they said unto him, In Bethlehem of Judaea: for thus it is written by the prophet,” (Mt 2:4-5) “The woman saith unto him, Sir, thou hast nothing to draw with, and the well is deep: from whence then hast thou that living water? Art thou greater than our father Jacob, which gave us the well, and drank thereof himself, and his children, and his cattle? Jesus answered and said unto her, Whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst again: But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.” (Jn 4:11-14) “In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink. He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water. (But this spake he of the Spirit, which they that believe on him should receive: for the Holy Ghost was not yet given; because that Jesus was not yet glorified.)” (Jn 7:37-39) Anybody want that water that Jesus was speaking of? Anybody want the Holy Ghost that Jesus was speaking of? You must be obedient to the scriptures and ask God to fill you with his Spirit and you too can have this living water. “And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. 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 2:1-4)

Daily Devotional – The Lips of the Wise Disperse Knowledge

“Good UNDERSTANDING giveth FAVOUR: but the way of TRANSGRESSORS is HARD. Every PRUDENT man DEALETH with KNOWLEDGE: but a FOOL layeth open his FOLLY.” (Pro 13:15-16) The LIPS of the WISE disperse KNOWLEDGE: but the HEART of the FOOLISH doeth NOT SO. The sacrifice of the WICKED is an ABOMINATION to the LORD: but THE PRAYER OF THE UPRIGHT IS HIS DELIGHT.

How is your prayer life with God? How often do you pray each day? How much time do you spend in prayer? Do you spend time in prayer for others? “Pray without ceasing.” (1 Thess 5:17) “Epaphras, who is one of you, a servant of Christ, saluteth you, always labouring fervently for you in prayers, that ye may stand perfect and complete in all the will of God.” (Col 4:12) “Finally, brethren, pray for us, that the word of the Lord may have free course, and be glorified, even as it is with you: And that we may be delivered from unreasonable and wicked men: for all men have not faith. But the Lord is faithful, who shall stablish you, and keep you from evil. And we have confidence in the Lord touching you, that ye both do and will do the things which we command you.” (2 Thess 3:1-4)

Daily Devotional – When thou hast Found it

“My son, eat thou honey, because it is good; and the honeycomb, which is sweet to thy taste: So shall the knowledge of wisdom be unto thy soul: when thou hast found it, then there shall be a reward, and thy expectation shall not be cut off.” (Pro 24:13-14) “The law of the wise is a fountain of life, to depart from the snares of death.” (Pro 13:14)

Have you found it yet? Are you looking for it? Are you searching for it the way that we are instructed to? “Blessed is the man that heareth me, watching daily at my gates, waiting at the posts of my doors. For whoso findeth me findeth life, and shall obtain favour of the LORD. But he that sinneth against me wrongeth his own soul: all they that hate me love death.” (Pro 8:34-36) “It cannot be gotten for gold, neither shall silver be weighed for the price thereof. It cannot be valued with the gold of Ophir, with the precious onyx, or the sapphire. The gold and the crystal cannot equal it: and the exchange of it shall not be for jewels of fine gold. No mention shall be made of coral, or of pearls: for the price of wisdom is above rubies. The topaz of Ethiopia shall not equal it, neither shall it be valued with pure gold. Whence then cometh wisdom? and where is the place of understanding?” (Job 28:15-20) “I wisdom dwell with prudence, and find out knowledge of witty inventions. The fear of the LORD is to hate evil: pride, and arrogancy, and the evil way, and the froward mouth, do I hate. Counsel is mine, and sound wisdom: I am understanding; I have strength. By me kings reign, and princes decree justice. By me princes rule, and nobles, even all the judges of the earth. I love them that love me; and those that seek me early shall find me. Riches and honour are with me; yea, durable riches and righteousness. My fruit is better than gold, yea, than fine gold; and my revenue than choice silver. I lead in the way of righteousness, in the midst of the paths of judgment: That I may cause those that love me to inherit substance; and I will fill their treasures.” (Pro 8:12-21) “If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him. But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord. A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.” (Jms 1:5-8)

Daily Devotional – Withhold Not Correction from the Child

“Apply thine heart unto instruction, and thine ears to the words of knowledge. Withhold not correction from the child: for if thou beatest him with the rod, he shall not die. Thou shalt beat him with the rod, and shalt deliver his soul from hell. My son, if thine heart be wise, my heart shall rejoice, even mine.” (Pro 23:12-15)

Love for your children. Is it truly love to allow your children to back talk to you? Is it truly love to allow your children to go unpunished for wrong doing? Is it truly love for your children not to correct them and show them the right way according to the only truth given to man from the Bible? Are you withholding correction because you love them when you see the results of their behavior toward you and others after not receiving correction?

Daily Devotional – A Good man Obtaineth Favour of the LORD

“Whoso loveth instruction loveth knowledge: but he that hateth reproof is brutish. A good man obtaineth favour of the Lord: but a man of wicked devices will he condemn. A man shall not be established by wickedness: but the root of the righteous shall not be moved. A virtuous woman is a crown to her husband: but she that maketh ashamed is as rottenness in his bones.” (Pro 12:1-4)

Are you interested in obtaining favor of the Lord? Are your motives for obtaining favor of the Lord pure or to be consumed upon your lust? “A good man out of the good treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is evil: for of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaketh.” (Lk 6:45) “For thou, LORD, wilt bless the righteous; with favour wilt thou compass him as with a shield.” (Psa 5:12) “Let not mercy and truth forsake thee: bind them about thy neck; write them upon the table of thine heart: So shalt thou find favour and good understanding in the sight of God and man.” (Pro 3:3-4) “Hear instruction, and be wise, and refuse it not. Blessed is the man that heareth me, watching daily at my gates, waiting at the posts of my doors. For whoso findeth me findeth life, and shall obtain favour of the LORD. But he that sinneth against me wrongeth his own soul: all they that hate me love death.” (Pro 8:33-36)

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)
