    Plans

    Plans

    Today we’ll be discussing the plans we make for our lives. So often, our plans symbolize control. Giving up control of our life’s direction can be scary and feel unsafe. But this is all part of growing in trust of our heavenly Father. As we continue in that direction today, may you feel encouraged and motivated to place your plans in the hands of a capable, trustworthy Father who has your best interest in mind, always.
    Our Scripture for today comes from Proverbs 19:21, and today's worship is Whatever Your Plan Is  byBethel Music feat. Josie Buchanan.

    Faith doesn’t happen on its own. It’s a byproduct of time spent experiencing the faithfulness of our God. It’s a gift given to us by the Giver of good gifts, himself. 
     
    It was a supernatural faith that allowed Paul to sing even while in chains. It was supernatural faith that allowed Peter to proclaim the gospel, even unto death. And it’s supernatural faith that will carry you to and through the greatest gospel opportunities in front of you. 
     
    We pray our printed devotionals, Faith and Trust, help people like you experience the life changing reality that faith and trust have on your everyday life.

    Understanding

    Understanding

May you find the understanding you need for your situation today as you learn to trust the Father and lean into him.
    Our Scripture for today comes from Proverbs 3:5, and today's worship is Lean Back by Capital City Music ft. Dion Davis.

    Obedience

    Obedience

    As we focus this week on growing in trusting God, today we’ll explore the concept of obedience. Trust and obedience are directly related. Willing, joyful obedience comes from a place of deep-rooted trust in the character and intentions of your God. When we learn to trust the heart of the Father, obedience is a natural response to whatever he asks. May you grow today in your willingness and excitement to quickly obey the Lord as you learn of his love and goodness..
    Our Scripture for today comes from Isaiah 1:19, and today's worship is I Have Decided by Forerunner Music feat. Jaye Thomas.

    Trustworthy

    Trustworthy

    Trust is something we are not created to give away lightly. We value trust like we value our own lives, constantly scrutinizing others to see if they’re worthy of our trust. But still we are made to do life with help. We are made to place our trust in that which will provide us with more life, joy, and peace. I pray that this week you and I will discover how trustworthy our heavenly Father is. I pray that we will willingly hand over control of our lives to a capable, loving, and near God. And I pray we will experience the abundant life that can only come through placing our trust in a God who gives up everything for relationship with us.
    Our Scripture for today comes from Psalm 22:4-5, and today's worship is I Will Trust by Red Rocks Worship.

    God's Heart to Meet With The Man John on Patmos

    As we wrap up our week on God’s heart to meet with man, today we’ll look at the encouraging story of John on the island of Patmos. Right when we think we’re unusable, a season is too dry or we’re past our prime, God comes and speaks fresh life and vision. If you find yourself like John on Patmos today, I pray God brings a new word of courage and life to you despite your season.
    Our Scripture for today comes from Revelation 1:17-19, and today's worship is Communion by Bryan McCleery.

    God's Heart To Meet With Man At Pentecost

    God's Heart To Meet With Man At Pentecost

    As we near the end of our week on God’s heart to meet with man, we look today at Pentecost. The day of Pentecost was a major fulfillment of God’s desire to meet with us. On that day, his Holy Spirit flooded the earth and was poured out on ordinary people, just like you and me. We see God’s desire to dwell with a people satisfied as his Spirit fills them and remains with them forever. May you be encouraged today as you look more deeply at God’s overwhelming desire to be one with you in your day to day life.
    Our Scripture for today comes from Acts 2:1-4, and today's worship is Come Again  by Elevation Worship & Maverick City.

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. ,
