Daily Devotion-August 31, 2021

Today’s Daily Devotion is brought to you by my friend and fellow Pastor Don Patterson from Austin, Tx. Daily Prayer Tuesday, August 31, 2021   7 But very truly I tell you, it is for your good that I am going away. Unless I go away, the Advocate will not come to you; but if I go, I will send him to you. 8 When he comes, he will prove the world to be in the wrong about sin and righteousness and judgment: 9 about sin, because…

Luke 15:8-10   [Jesus said] “Or what woman who has ten silver coins, if she loses one coin, would not light a lamp, sweep the house, and search carefully until she finds it? And when she finds it, she calls together her friends and neighbors and says, ‘Rejoice with me, because I have found the lost coin.’ In the same way, I tell you, there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner who repents.” Dear…

Hebrews 1:1-2 In the past, God spoke to our forefathers by the prophets at many times and in many ways. In these last days, he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed heir of all things, and through whom he made the universe. Dear Heavenly Father, Thank you for giving us your word; it is not something to be taken lightly. You chose to record your history, instructions, and prayers with your people through the written message…

Psalm 19:7-11 The law of the Lord is perfect. It revives the soul. The testimony of the Lord is trustworthy. It gives wisdom to the inexperienced. The precepts of the Lord are right. They give joy to the heart. The commandment of the Lord is bright. It gives light to the eyes. The fear of the Lord is pure. It stands forever. The just decrees of the Lord are truth. They are altogether righteous. They are more desirable than gold, even better than much pure gold. They are sweeter than honey, even honey dripping from…

Psalm 46:1-3 God is our refuge and strength, a helper who can always be found in times of trouble. That is why we will not fear when the earth dissolves and when the mountains tumble into the heart of the sea. Its waters roar and foam. The mountains quake when it rises. Dear Heavenly Father, It is no secret we live in uncertain and troubled times. The world’s tension seems like a sealed pressure cooker that at any moment could explode. In this…

1 Timothy 1:15-17 This saying is trustworthy and worthy of full acceptance: “Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners,” of whom I am the worst. But I was shown mercy for this reason: that in me, the worst sinner, Christ Jesus, might demonstrate his unlimited patience as an example for those who are going to believe in him, resulting in eternal life. Now to the King eternal, to the immortal, invisible, only God, be honor and glory forever…

Ephesians 4:15-16 Instead, speaking the truth in love, we would, in all things, grow up into Christ, who is the head. From him, the whole body, being joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grows in accordance with Christ’s activity when he measured out each individual part. He causes the growth of the body so that it builds itself up in love. Dear Lord Jesus, The image of each of us being part of and growing into the Church’s…

Proverbs 9:8-9 Do not warn a mocker, or he will hate you. Warn a wise person, and he will love you. Give advice to a wise person, and he will become even wiser. Teach a righteous person, and he will add to his learning. Dear Heavenly Father, Thank you for these words of wisdom. Especially when we ask a person about their faith because we are concerned about their impending doom from their unbelief, this has caused divisions in families, troubles…

Hebrews 11:3 By faith, we know that the universe was created by God’s word, so that what is seen did not come from visible things. Dear Heavenly Father, These words from the writer of Hebrews are awe-inspiring. First off, the way that we know about your created work is because of faith. Lord, give us patience dealing with unbelievers who live in the make-believe world of evolution. You not only made us, but you created the universe. I hear these…

Matthew 20:28 “The Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.” Dear Lord Jesus, Forgive me when I think I have something to add to what you have done for me; somehow, my service to you adds to it. Isaiah clearly identified that everything we do is tainted with sin; he wrote, “all our works are as filthy rags.” You served all the people who came…
