Monday's Devotional

Good Morning Everyone,

We began our "Experiencing God sessions last night.  As I began to work through the daily readings is was impressed especially by the first paragraph in Day One.  It says, "Jesus said, "This is eternal life: that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent".(John 17: 3)  ... Real Christianity is not merely a religion; it is a relationship with a person.  It is an intimate love relationship with God.  Through this relationship God reveals His will and invites you to join Him where He is at work.  When you obey God, God accomplishes through you something only He can do.Then you come to know God in a more intimate way by experiencing Him at work through your life.  ... Jesus said, "I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full."  (John 10: 10)  Would you like to experience life to its fullest measure?  You can if you are willing to respond to God's invitation to an intimate love relationship with Him." 

If you were unable to make it last night, it is not too late!  Come by the Church this week and get your copy of the Experiencing God workbook and begin the daily readings and then make plans to join us next Sunday night at 6:00.  I can guarantee that the devil does not want you to be a part of what God is doing here, but "greater is He that is in you than he that is in the World."  Don't let the devil win.

Friday's Devotional

Good Morning Everyone,

This past Sunday we had the opportunity to hear Norman Blackaby, Henry Blackaby's son.  Dr Blackaby introduced us to "Experiencing God".  We will be going through "Experiencing God" as a Church beginning this coming Sunday evening.  Workbooks are available, if you would like to make a donation to help with the cost of the workbooks, please mark your checK or offering envelope with Experiencing God.  One of the verses Dr. Blackaby shared with us this past Sunday morning was John 5: 17 "But Jesus answered them, "My Father is working until now, and I am working."  The first reality of Experiencing God is God is at work all around us, even right now.  If you would like to see Dr. Blackaby's entire sermon go to First Baptist Church Eustace Facebook page.

Starting Monday morning, my daily devotions will be following along with the workbook of "Experiencing God".  Please make every effort to be with us on Sunday evenings.  The Evening services will be in the gym around the tables.

Thursday's Devotional

Good Morning Everyone,

Let's look at Luke 14:23

"Go out into the highways and hedges, and compel them to come in, that my house may be filled."

Purely as an illustration, suppose the Lord Jesus told you you’ve got one year left on earth. Do you think He would then tell you to spend your time stockpiling food? Hardly! I think He would say, "Friend, you’ve got one year left to go up and down the highways and the byways and the corridors of this land with the gospel of Jesus Christ, sharing Him as you never have before. Sell everything you’ve got to buy literature and get it to those who don’t know. Give everything you have so that by the time I come back at the end of this year, you will have touched every human being you could possibly touch with the message of Jesus Christ, the Lord of glory."

It’s not my task or purpose to make people feel guilty. Every one of us knows we could be doing a better job of telling other people about our Lord. I’m not talking about buttonholing people and being obnoxious. That’s not what we’re supposed to do. I’m just talking about starting every day by praying, "Lord, today I’m going to live for You. If You bring someone across my path who needs You, help me to sense it, and help me to do the right thing."

Wednesday's Devotional

Good Morning Everyone,

Let's look at Romans 4:20–21

"He did not waver at the promise of God through unbelief … being fully convinced that what He had promised He was also able to perform."

One of the hardest things for us to do is wait on God. Sometimes God’s promises don’t materialize as soon as we would like, and we wonder if God has forgotten us.

What God has promised He is able to perform. Think of the many wonderful promises He has made. How do we know He is able to do what He has promised? Because He is the Almighty God. As we wait for the fruition of God’s promises, we can find confidence in knowing God is not only in charge of the event, but He is in charge of the timing. What energizes us as we wait for Him is this thought: God has never promised anything to any of us that He is not able to do; and He is faithful to do what He has promised.

God will not prostitute His power to give us desires that will in the end be destructive to our walk with Him. But if we are consumed with a passion to find God’s will through His Word and His Holy Spirit, we can always be in the place where God can shower down His power upon us.

Tuesday's Devotional

Good Morning Everyone,

Let's look at Matthew 6:11

"Give us this day our daily bread."

Every day I try to pray, "God, I want Your will to be done on earth as it is in heaven. Please meet my needs today." To trust Him daily presupposes that you talk to Him daily. Praying week to week is not in the Lord’s Prayer. The challenges of life come daily, not weekly. For us to remain free of worry, we have to pray and trust Him daily.

It’s not wrong to think about tomorrow, to plan for tomorrow, or to make provision for tomorrow. It’s just wrong to worry about tomorrow. I believe God expects me to plan as if it all depends on me but pray as if it all depends on Him.

The only way we get through crises with our kids is one day at a time. The only way we get through sickness is one day at a time. The only way we get through times of financial stress is one day at a time. Why? Because God has ordained that life moves at the pace of one day at a time. All He wants us to do is be in step with Him—to trust Him for today

Bro. Paul
