Matthew 28:19-20: “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
Evangelizing is something I believe a majority of us struggle with. For my last devotional, I would like to challenge you to invite one person either to Bible Study Fellowship, a different Fall Bible Study you may be doing, or your church TODAY. It’s a simple question, not a lot of pressure. But it could make all the difference in someone’s life!
Psalm 43:1: “Vindicate me, O God, and plead my cause against an ungodly nation; rescue me from deceitful and wicked men.”
Playing off of Monday’s devotional, do the right thing and God will vindicate you and defend you and rescue you from whatever you face. Faith. Belief. Reliance. Prayer. All your weapons against Darkness.
Jeremiah 22:3: “This is what the Lord says: Do what is just and right.”
This can be hard to do in every day life. Treating others fairly. Putting aside your pride. Paying for the tickets someone forgot to charge you for. Standing up for someone. Or quitting your job because of dubious practices. Keep in mind God is with you every step of every day to do what is just and right in this very Fallen world. Remember Him and these decisions will be easy.
Deuteronomy 2:7: “The Lord your God has blessed you in all the work of your hands. He has watched over your journey through this vast desert. These forty years the Lord your God has been with you, and you have not lacked anything.”
During those times in our lives when we feel alone and lost and wandering and unsure of which path to take, God is with us in our journey. He is there, handing us water to quench our thirst, and providing encouragement, comfort, and guidance. God is there always, blessing us as we go. His are the invisible footprints by our side. Forever.
Psalm 113:3: “From the rising of the sun to the place where it sets, the name of the Lord is to be praised.”
On this day when the majority of Americans will have their eyes to the sky, remember that it is God who gives us such amazing sites as a total solar eclipse. Only He could divinely design such incredible celestial events. Praise Him and thank Him for such an awesome sight when you look skywards today.
Imagine how your life would be different if you realized nothing you own is yours. It’s all God’s. He’s given it all to you. He can take it away. One day it will not be yours. Imagine how this world would be if we thought not in terms of possessions but in terms of giving.
