Monday's Devotional

Good Morning Everyone,

Experiencing God Week 6 Day 1

"When you pray in a particular direction, immediately anticipate God's activity in answer to your prayer.  Throughout Scripture when God's people prayed, He responded. 

Here's what happens if you pray and then forget about what you prayed about.  Things start to happen during the day that are unusual.  Seeing them as distractions, you try to ignore them and fail to connect them with what you prayed about earlier. 

When I pray, I immediately begin to watch for what happens next.  I Prepare to make adjustments to what happens in my life.  When I pray, the idea that God is not going to answer never crosses my mind.  Expect God to answer your prayers, but stick around for the answer.  His timing is always right and best."

Quote by Henry Blackaby

Bro. Paul

Friday's Devotional

Good Morning Everyone,

Experiencing God Week 5 Day 5

Prayer is a two way fellowship and communication with God.  You speak to God, and He speaks to you.  Prayer is not a one-way conversation in which you merely list everything you want God to do.  Your personal prayer life may primarily be one-way communication - you talking to God - but prayer is more than that.  Prayer includes listening.  In fact, what God says in prayer is far more important than what you say.  God already knows what you are going to say.  You, however, do not know what God is thinking.

Prayer is a relationship, not just a religious activity.  Its purpose is to adjust you to God, not align God with your thinking.  God doesn't need your prayers, but He wants you to pray because of what God wants to do in and through your life as you pray.  God speaks to His people by the Holy Spirit through prayer. 

When the Holy Spirit reveals a spiritual truth to you in prayer, He is present and actively working in your life.  Genuine prayer does not lead to an encounter with God.  It is an encounter with God.

Bro. Paul

Thursday's Devotional

Good Morning Everyone,

Experiencing God Week 5 Day 4

When the Holy Spirit reveals a spiritual truth from God's Word, He is personally applying it to your life.  That is an encounter with God.  This is the sequence:

1.  You read God's Word - the Bible

2.  The Spirit of Truth takes God's Word and reveals truth.

3.  You adjust your life to God's truth.

4.  You obey God.

5.  God works in and through you to accomplish His purposes.

Bro. Paul

Wednesday's Devotional

Good Morning Everyone,

Experiencing God Week 5 Day 3

God reveals Himself to increase faith that leads to action.  Listen attentively to what God reveals to you about Himself. 

What He shows you will be critical when you come to a crisis of belief.

You will have to believe God is who He says He is.

You will have to believe God can do what He says He will do.

You will have to adjust your thinking in light of this belief.

Trusting that God will demonstrate Himself to be who He says He is, then you obey Him.

When you obey, God does His work through you and demonstrates that He is who He says He is.

Then you will know Gos by experience.

You will know God is who He says He is.

Bro. Paul

  3. When I come to God’s Word, The Author Himself is present to instruct me.
  4. Truth is never discovered, it is revealed.
