    God's Heart To Meet With Man: The Woman Caught In Adultry

    God's Heart To Meet With Man: The Woman Caught In Adultry

    Have you ever believed the lie that your sin makes you unlovable to God? I think we all have at one time or another. We will look today at the story of the woman caught in adultery. For some reason, every time I read this story it surprises me again. God is oftentimes different than we expect, much kinder in fact. May today be no different. I pray you’re met by a generous, kind, merciful Savior as you open your heart to him.
    Our Scripture for today comes from John 8:7, and today's worship is Never Be The Same by  First15 Worship feat. Ashley & Bryan McCleery.

    God's Heart To Meet With Man: Jesus To Us

    God's Heart To Meet With Man: Jesus To Us

    As we continue our week on God’s heart to meet with man, today we’ll look at the best example I can think of. Many of us doubt the love of God due to all kinds of circumstances, but I pray today you become even a little bit more convinced and sure of his pursuit and unconditional love for you specifically. Open your heart today and allow God to give you a renewed sense of how much you mean to him.
    Our Scripture for today comes from Psalms 29:2, and today's worship is Mercy by Elevation Worship & Maverick City.

    God's Heart To Meet With Moses

    God's Heart To Meet With Moses

    Oftentimes we look at Old Testament stories of man’s encounters with God and grow jealous. We question why God doesn’t show up in the way he did with Moses for us now. There is a portion of relationship, encounter and intimacy available to us with God today that men of the Old Testament could have never dreamed of. It is my hope and prayer that you leave today having experienced the richness, unity and oneness with the Spirit of God you were made for.
    Our Scripture for today comes from Exodus 33:11, and today's worship is Face to Face by Kendrian & Lauren Dueck.

    God's Heart To Meet With Gideon

    God's Heart To Meet With Gideon

    Have you ever felt incompetent for the work God sets before you? The mission and call of God on our lives can seem daunting and impossible. Know that Gideon felt that way, and it’s okay if you do too. But God wants to speak courage and empowerment to our hearts today that he will be with us, moving through us every step of our journey. Open your heart today that God may fill it with fresh fire and excitement for the call on your life.
    Our Scripture for today comes from Judges 6:16, and today's worship is Peace by Anna Golden.

    God's Heart to Meet With David

    God's Heart to Meet With David

    Throughout Scripture we see countless examples of God meeting with man and countless lives being transformed as the result. These examples are in Scripture to stir our faith and fill us with a desire to meet with our Creator. When we read about the life of David, we should be filled with a longing to live as he did, centered around meeting with our heavenly Father. When we read about Gideon or Moses, we should long to know our God as they did. When we read about Jesus coming down to us or his heart for the woman caught in adultery, we should respond by pursuing encounters with our Savior. And when we read of Pentecost and Jesus’ second coming, we should seek out the fullness of God’s presence available to us on this earth in preparation for the age that is to come. May your heart be filled with a wholehearted desire to pursue meeting with God this week.
    Our Scripture for today comes from Psalm 84:1-2, and today's worship is No Other God by Steph Macleod.

    Encountering God Through Others

    Encountering God Through Others

    People are messy. We are difficult and challenging. And it’s because of that no church is perfect. But there must be some reason Jesus desires for us to be unified and be one. Today we’ll explore how and why it’s important to encounter God through other people. May your wounds be healed, and your heart be opened to how God wants to use others to lead you to him.
    Our Scripture for today comes from Matthew 18:19-20, and today's worship is When We Praise You by Matthew Zigenis.

Calming! Gives words to pray when I have none

I really like this podcast. I have been walking through the valley of the shadow of death, a Craig’s calm voice and material encourage me. I want to pray but mostly listen as I have no words in my grief. Thank you!!

Miss Marva ,

All the subjects

I find so much comfort and guidance in these devotions. When I am bothered or questions arise I turn to these devotions. They guide me to the scriptures I may need to read and research but they also relax and comfort me. They encourage and remind me of God’s love. Thank you and God bless you.

Forever Ms. ,
