• His Will
    August 20 “This is the confidence which we have before Him, that, if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us.” 1 John 5:14
    Listen to today's Devotional

    What does it mean to pray according to the will of the Father? Perhaps this will help.

    Several years ago, I went bird hunting with a friend. I’d never been before so I did everything he told me to do, whether it was to ‘stand over there,” or “go that way” or “sit right there.” I did what he wanted me to do because he knew what he was doing, and I clearly did not.


    So it is when we pray in the will of the Father. We do so because He knows what is best for His children. https://mailchi.mp/1932bc8ab04c/the-truest-freedom-you-can-ever-experience-452845?e=9cbe669f39

  • Daily Walk
    August 19 “If you obey my commands, you will remain in my love, just as I have obeyed my Father’s commands and remain in his love.” John 15:10
    Listen to today's Devotional

    Years ago, when Vince Lombardi became the head coach of the Green Bay Packers, he had his work cut out for him. At the first preseason meeting, Lombardi entered the locker room and uttered just five words: “Gentlemen, this is a football.” He knew how important it is to get the basics right.

    How important the basics are in our daily walk too - things like reading the Bible daily, praying consistently, attending worship regularly. Whenever you feel that you’re just going through the motions in your Christian life, get back to the fundamentals, the basics.


    Our success or failure is often determined by how well we execute these basics of the Christian life. https://mailchi.mp/abf06f53863a/the-truest-freedom-you-can-ever-experience-452841?e=9cbe669f39

  • Storm Ready
    August 16 "Jesus said, “Therefore everyone who hears these words of Mine and acts upon them, may be compared to a wise man, who built his house on the rock…” Matthew 7:24 Listen to today's Devotional

    Jesus was a carpenter, so we can be confident that He knew how to build a house. He knew that a house had to have a solid foundation, so it would stand when the storms came. Jesus also knew that building a life is like building a house.


    If you build your life on the Rock of Jesus Christ, with Him as your foundation, and according to His principles, when storms, stress and tribulation come – and they will come – your life will stand - in this world and through all eternity.


    Take some time and examine your life and see if it’s storm ready. https://mailchi.mp/3a25a83208c6/the-truest-freedom-you-can-ever-experience-452813?e=9cbe669f39

  • Amen
    August 15 “Even so consider yourselves to be dead to sin, but alive to God in Christ Jesus.” Romans 6:11
    Listen to today's Devotional

    Consistency in the Christian walk does not come easily. Just knowing right and wrong is not enough. Our old nature continues to battle with our new nature. When we strive to live for Christ in our own power, our will is too weak and our efforts fall short.

    The key to consistency and victory in the Christian life begins with understanding that when we said “Yes” to Jesus, we moved from death to life, from old to new.


    In Christ we are new creations, alive to God and freed from the power of sin. Now that deserves an “Amen!” https://mailchi.mp/3792e8715c8b/the-truest-freedom-you-can-ever-experience-452809?e=9cbe669f39

  • Your Heart
    August 14 “For every beast of the forest is Mine, the cattle on a thousand hills.” Psalm 50:10
    Listen to today's Devotional

    In the state of Texas, to hear about someone who has the cattle on a thousand hills gets attention! But what is God really saying here?

    Although the Israelites were faithfully bringing their sacrifices to God He recognized they were merely going through the motions. In essence, He told them “I don’t need your sacrificial animals. All animals are Mine!”


    What God wanted was their hearts. If we’re not careful, we can find ourselves going through the motions just like the Israelites.

    Ask God to give you a heart for Him, and then give it right back to Him in your heartfelt worship. https://mailchi.mp/9bf1a100e252/the-truest-freedom-you-can-ever-experience-452805?e=9cbe669f39

  • Worship
    August 13 “Come, let us worship and bow down, let us kneel before the Lord our Maker.” Psalm 95:6
    Listen to today's Devotional

    Centuries ago our word “worship” was expressed as two words in English, “worth-ship”. The idea behind this Old English expression was that God’s glory, majesty and holiness made Him so “heavy” that a man would have to bend his knees, bow his head and lower his eyes under such a holy load.

    In other words, the “weightiness” of God should bring us low before we lift His name on high and acknowledge and proclaim His worth. The next time you bow down and kneel before God, take a moment to feel His holy weight. Then worship Him with awe and reverence! https://mailchi.mp/a8f936e44082/the-truest-freedom-you-can-ever-experience-452801?e=9cbe669f39

  • Secure place
    August 12 He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will abide in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say to the Lord, My refuge and my fortress, my God in whom I trust! Psalm 91:1-2 Listen to today's Devotional

    In times of trouble, we all want a safe and secure place. Psalm 91 assures us that such a place exists and is available to those who trust in God.
    A look at the four names of God used in our verses helps us better understand this powerful security.

    The “Most High” is El Elyon, the God who possesses everything.
    “The Almighty” is El Shaddai, the God who provides all things.
    “The Lord” is Jehovah, the God of promise.
    And “my God” is Elohim, the God of all power.

    So, when trouble comes, run to the shelter of God. It’s the most secure place you can be. https://mailchi.mp/06e8a17a2ad7/the-truest-freedom-you-can-ever-experience-452797?e=9cbe669f39

  • Iron sharpens iron
    August 8 “Iron sharpens iron; so one man sharpens another.” Proverbs 27:17 Listen to today's Devotional

    To better understand this verse, I called an engineer friend. He detailed the process including the change that takes place in the iron during the sharpening. He also went on to explain that taking two pieces of the metal, heating them up and hammering them together increases the tensile strength, resulting in a piece better able to hold up under stress and pressure.


    We could all use a trusted “ironman” in our lives. The sharpening process both strengthens and equips us to become the men and women God created us to be and to accomplish what He called us to do.


    So, let me ask you: How is your tensile strength? Could you benefit from the sharpening of a trusted “ironman?” https://mailchi.mp/03be75491e02/the-truest-freedom-you-can-ever-experience-452777?e=9cbe669f39

  • #Encourage one another

    Listen to today's Devotional

    From time to time someone will say to me, “I’m a Christian but I don’t think you have to go to church. I worship God in my own way.”

    I don’t believe in “Lone Ranger” Christians. This verse in Hebrews directs us to gather together with other believers. That sure sounds like church to me!
    At church we motivate one another, love one another, do good deeds for one another, encourage one another … well, you get the idea.

    Being with other believers at church fuels the fire of our walk with the Lord, making it a winning walk. https://mailchi.mp/aad5c244a255/the-truest-freedom-you-can-ever-experience-452773?e=9cbe669f39

  • Serving Faith
    August 6 “…whoever wishes to become great among you shall be your servant.” Matthew 20:26
    Listen to today's Devotional

    Jesus told His disciples that true greatness comes through serving others. This type of “serving faith” models the lifestyle of self-sacrifice that defines His true followers.

    When we give ourselves to the service of others, we are carrying on the example established by Jesus who said that He “did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many.”


    So, look for opportunities to “give yourself away” this week. You will experience the fullness of life that comes only when we walk in step with God, and who knows - someone might even see Jesus in you. https://mailchi.mp/55e8f8749cd6/the-truest-freedom-you-can-ever-experience-452769?e=9cbe669f39
