    The Yoke of Jesus

    The Yoke of Jesus

    In today’s devotional, we’re going to continue our pursuit of stirring up our affections for God by looking at how God exchanges our burdens for his peace. As a society, we are more continually stressed now than ever. Stress has become our new normal. But in God, we have the opportunity to live with a peace that surpasses our understanding. May God guide us down his path to peace today as we make space for his presence.
    Our Scripture for today comes from Matthew 11:28-30, and today's worship is Peace by Josh Baldwin.

    As believers, we want a real connection with God every day, not just on Sunday. We want the peace and passion that comes from living with God, not for God. But when Monday morning rolls around we’re left thinking: 
    “Now what?” “How do I find and keep a daily connection with my Creator on my own?” 
    At First15, we know that meaningful worship isn’t just for Sunday. Every believer should be able to find a daily connection to God with fresh worship created specifically for their weekday.

    A Constant Companion

    A Constant Companion

    Today we’re wrapping up our week-long series of stirring up our affections for God by looking at what it means to have friendship with the Holy Spirit. The nearness of God’s Spirit, the reality of his voice and leadership, is our deepest connection to God on this earth. And like any other relationship, any other connection, it takes time to develop a true friendship with the Spirit. So today we’re embarking on a journey with one simple goal in mind: growing a little bit closer to the Spirit in friendship. May God guide us and empower us today, and reveal himself in a fresh way.
    Our Scripture for today comes from Romans 8:26-27, and today's worship is Abide by Dwell Songs feat. Aaron Williams.

    The Heart of God to Forgive

    The Heart of God to Forgive

    As we near the end of our week, creating space every day to simply have our affections stirred up for God, we’re going to take time today to look at God’s heart to forgive us. God’s forgiveness is as constant as our need for his forgiveness. And today, I hope and pray that he reveals his heart to forgive us completely and immediately when we confess our sin to him, and his heart to constantly restore us to intimacy with him.
    Our Scripture for today comes from 1 John 1:9, and today's worship is Kyrie Eleison by Vineyard Worship.

    God Heals Hearts

    In today’s devotional, we’re going to look at the reality that God loves to heal hearts. As we continue this series allowing who God is and what he does to stir up our affections for him, may his desire to heal us emotionally, to bind up our wounds, draw us closer to him in meaningful ways.

    Delighting in God's Love

    Delighting in God's Love

    As we reach the middle of our week-long focus on stirring up our affections for God, today we’re going to create space to simply delight in God’s love. Oftentimes focusing on the simple, foundational aspects of our relationship with God will produce more fruit than trying to journey beyond them. And I pray that God reveals his love in a tangible and fresh way today for you and me as we open our hearts to meet with him.
    Our Scripture for today comes from John 17:26, and today's worship is Your Love is a Well by First15 Worship feat. Rachel Denison.

Dephgrave ,

Thankful my sister told me about First 15!

This is such a peaceful way to begin your morning or soothing moment when you get in bed at night. There’s even a sleep timer! I love the new worship music.

So glad I found this .

I love the devotional and guidance.This really speaks to me. I have shared it with many. My only suggestion is that often the music repetition and volume distracts me. That’s just me.

Love the 2021 Update + Music

Adding the worship song at the end brings this podcast to absolute perfection! There are so many ways to worship and meditate and you’ve brought them all to one place for this busy mom. I can’t tell you how inspiring and spirit-moving I find your daily podcast! Thank you! 🙌❤️🙌❤️🙌
