Daily Devotion for May 29th, 2020

Luke 17:7 When a servant comes in from plowing or taking care of sheep, he doesn't just sit down and eat. He must first prepare his master's meal and serve him his supper before eating his own. And the servant is not even thanked, because he is merely doing what he issupposedto do. In the same way, when you obeyMEyou should say, "We are not worthy of praise. We are servant...

Matthew 11:25-26 Then JESUS prayed this prayer: "O FATHER, LORD of heaven and earth, thank YOU for hiding the truth from those who think themselves so wise and clever, and for revealing it to the childlike (the word childlike is infants in NASB). Yes FATHER, it pleased YOU to do it this way!" I love babies. They smell soooo good! Why can't they bottle that smell? I love ...

Matthew 13:45 "Again, the Kingdom of Heaven is like a pearl merchant on the lookout for choice pearls. When he discovered a pearl of great value, he sold everything he owned to buy it." Long ago, before kids, before marriage, my soon-to-be spouse and I had a Sunday School teacher named Randy Monroe. He rocked our world. He taught our Sunday School class with a consuming ...

Psalm 34:14 "Turn away from evil and do good. Work hard at living in peace with others." In Genesis 26 we find Isaac, Abraham's son, in a severe famine. "So Isaac moved to Gerar, where Abimelech, king of the Philistines, lived" (Genesis 26:1). The LORD appeared to him there and told him not to go to Egypt. If Isaac stayed in Gerar, this land located on the edge of...

Proverbs 19:2 "Zeal without knowledge is not good; a person who moves too quickly may go the wrong way." Yesterday was not a "SPIRIT-filled" day for me. It started well, but before breakfast was over I had concocted a "me" plan and I didn't "check in" with the LORD....I became so focused on the task I wanted completed that I put my plan into action without consulting the ...

Luke 17:17-18 JESUS asked, "Didn't I heal ten men? Where are the other nine? Does only this foreigner return to give glory to GOD?" This week has been one of sleep deprivation because my youngest has been struggling with a night cough. Thoughshe seems healthy and fineduring the day, as soon as she tries to sleep, she can't stop coughing. She's been waking herself aro...

1 Samuel 17:45 David shouted in reply, "You come to me with sword, spear, and javelin, but I come to you in the name of the LORD ALMIGHTY--the GOD of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied." I absolutely love the story of David and Goliath. A youth, shepherd by trade, kills a Philistine giant that had been terrifying the Israelite army. How did he do that? How did he ...

2 Corinthians 5:1 "For we know that when this earthly tent we live in is taken down--when we die and leave these bodies--we will have a home in heaven, an eternal body made for us by GOD Himself and not by human hands." I don't know about you, but my body is showing some wear and tear. My hips pop, my elbows sometimes lock, and my knees don't always "do" their job. My ey...

Deuteronomy 8:3 "...people need more than bread for their life;real lifecomes by feeding on every Word of theLORD." My kids are the masters of "mud pies." They love going outside after a rain and playing "restaurant." They create the most decadent-looking chocolate desserts out ofwet dirt, leaves, and berries. Sometimes, the "desserts" they create look so good... My youn...

I have a horse. We have been together for a long time (28+ years)! One of the first things I worked with her on was "leg-yielding." With pressure applied to the correct location on her side, she will move away from the pressure. When held at a stand still, she will cross her legs to move sideways, away from my leg. Moreover, if I turn her head slightly to one side and appl...

HE was wearing a long robe with a gold sash across His chest. HIS head and hair were white like wool, as white as snow. And HIS eyes were bright like flames of fire. HIS feet were as bright as bronze refined in a furn...

Good day, church family! Or so I hope... I don't know about you, but sometimes I get mentally "stuck" in a bad place. This being "stuck" manifests itself as feeling sorry for myself for one thing or another, feeling life is "hard," my situation is "unfair," the "grass is greener on the other side," the glass is "half-empty"...you get the picture. One stray thought like th...

Matthew 8:27 "The disciples just sat there in awe. "Who is this? they asked themselves. "Even the wind and waves obeyHIM!" We were camping at a place near Pismo. It was our first time at this RV site, and I loved it. The landscape was covered with gigantic mountains of sand.

Leviticus 2:13 "Season all your grain offerings with salt, to remind you of GOD's covenant. Never forget to add salt to your grain offerings." What an interesting verse, don't you think? In coming across this verse, I found out that Arab countries used to seal their contracts with a gift of salt to show the strength and permanence of an agreement. This is probably whyGOD ...

Genesis 49:9-10 "Judah is a young lion that has finished eating its prey. Like a lion he crouches and lies down; like a lioness--who will dare to rouse him? The scepter will not depart from Judah, nor the ruler's staff from his descendants, until the coming of the ONE to whom it belongs, the ONE whom all nations will obey." I like lions. I am in awe of them. They are the ...
