Thursday's Devotional

Good Morning Everyone,

Let's look at Psalm 34:2

"My soul shall make its boast in the Lord."

When we feel afraid, we are prone to pull the blanket over our heads and hope it goes away. Or we nurse our fears. The adversary of our souls loves to get our attention focused on ourselves and not on the resources of our God.

What will happen when you praise and worship God? Your praise makes God big in your heart and mind. Soon, your problem falls into perspective. When I worship God, sometimes even with the tears coming down my face, my spirit is renewed as I praise God. My problem doesn’t go away, but all of a sudden I see it in relation to the One who is in charge of everything.

It’s interesting what we boast about, isn’t it? At the last party you went to, what did you boast about? Put the spotlight on the Lord and focus on Him. When we get together with friends, let’s just brag on Jesus. So many good things are happening in our lives as individuals, in our families, and in our churches that we ought to boast on the Lord all the time.

Bro. Paul

Wednesday's Devotional

Good Morning Everyone,

Let's look at 2 Timothy 1:7

"God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind."

We have been released from the spirit of fear by the Holy Spirit, who has placed us in the body of Christ. We have received the Spirit of adoption. This adoption provides for every believer release from the bondage that he once knew. The picture that Paul uses is the contrast between slavery and sonship. Slavery, with its fear and isolation, stands for our old lives before knowing Christ. We are told by the writer of Hebrews that Christ died that He might destroy the one who had the power of death and release those who were subject to a fear of death (Hebrews 2:14–15). The perfect love of God has cast out the fear to which we were once enslaved (2 Timothy 1:7; 1 John 4:18).

Anything that involves a believer in fear of bondage cannot possibly be the work of the Holy Spirit of God. It must come either from his own heart of unbelief or as a temptation of the evil one. Our sonship implies perfect spiritual liberty and the absence of all legal features which would bring us once more under the Law.

Bro. Paul
