Daily Devotion for June 30th, 2020

Deuteronomy 32:9 "For the people of Israel belong to the LORD; Jacob is HIS special possession." I have two thoughts on "Jews for JESUS" presentations: ONE: I've always secretly wished to be Jewishso I could say I was physically related to our KING. GOD speaks of "HIS people" with such love, patience, and compassion throughout the scriptures... to be part of those Old Te...

Proverbs 27:15 A nagging wife is as annoying as the constant dripping on a rainy day. Trying to stop her complaints is like trying to stop the wind or hold something with greased hands. Ten years ago, my husband and I had a teenager living with us. She was delightful, quiet, never complaining, a help, and easy to please. In short, she was a delight. So it came as quite ...

Genesis 3:16 "Then HE said to the woman, "You will bear children with intense pain and suffering. And though your desire will be for your husband, he will be your master." This is not my favorite scripture. The background is the following: Eve was deceived by the serpent (Satan), and she ate fruit from the tree of knowledge of good and evil...the only tree she and Adam we...

1 Corinthians 4:16: "So I ask you to follow my example and do as I do." The apostle Paul is fascinating. I have always been in awe of his "follow my example" exhortations to the saints. He instructed his readers to follow his example two times in 1 Corinthians (1 Corinthians 4:16, 1 Corinthians 11:1), and again in Philippians 3:17: "Dear brothers and sisters, pattern your...

Philippians 3:16 But we must be sure to obey the truth we have learned already. In our first 2 years of marriage, my spouse and I moved 4 times...2 were cross country moves, one was to the state "next door," and the last was to a neighboring city. Because of these moves, we were financially "broke" beyond all reason, in debt up to our eyeballs, and there was no financial ...

Matthew 12:48-50 JESUS asked, "Who is MY mother? Who are MY brothers?" Then HE pointed to HIS disciples and said, "These are MY mother and brothers. Anyone who does the will of My FATHER in heaven is MY brother and sister and mother!" JESUS is speaking to the crowd. Imagine yourself being "in" it. Someone pushes through to give HIM the message that HISmother and brothers ...

Matthew 11:28-30 Then JESUS said, "Come to ME, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Take MY yoke upon you. Let ME teach you, because I am humble and gentle, and you will find rest for your souls. For MY yoke fits perfectly, and the burden I give you is light." As a teen, I really hated Algebra. It was hard. Word problems never made s...

Matthew 13:8-9 "But some seeds fell on fertile soil and produced a crop that was thirty, sixty, and even a hundred times as much as had been planted. Anyone who is willing to hear should listen and understand!" The parable of the four soils in Matthew 13 has always intrigued me. I can see JESUS, sitting in the boat...all alone. I imagine HE got in that boat to separate HI...

1 Peter 1:15-16: But now you must be holy in everything you do, just as GODwho chose you to be HIS childrenis holy. For HE Himself has said, "You must be holy because I am holy." Sometimes I'm tempted to think I'm doing "pretty well." I look around, compare myself to others, and I think, "Hey, Lady! You're doing great!" Depending on whom I'm comparing myself with, I can...

Psalm 119:81 I faint with longing for YOUR salvation; but I have put my hope in YOUR Word. I often try to fill myself with spiritual "junk food." That is, I allow myself to watch hours of mindless TV, drown myself in books, surf the "net," play WII, or pursue anything else that may momentarily "taste good." Here's the problem: After the "junk" I feel increased emptiness, ...

John 2:15 JESUS made a whip from some ropes and chased them all out of the Temple. HE drove out the sheep and oxen, scattered the money changers' coins over the floor, and turned over their tables. Then, going over to the people who sold doves, HE told them, "Get these things out of here. Don't turn MY FATHER's house into a marketplace!" You know what is amazing to me? I ...

2 Samuel 6:14 And David danced before the LORD with all his might, wearing a priestly tunic. You know, for years I have read this passage and cringed. The background story is as follows: David was finally getting to bring the Ark of the LORD back to Jerusalem. His first attempt to do this resulted in the death of Uzzah because he had not followed theLORD's instructions fo...

Psalm 32: 3-4 When I refused to confess my sin, I was weak and miserable, and I groaned all day long. Day and night YOUR hand of discipline was heavy on me. My strength evaporated like water in the summer heat. The Mighty HOLY SPIRIT has so many amazing jobs: One of HIS jobs is that of Counselor. JESUS referred to HIM this way in John 16:7-8. This indwelling COUNSELOR g...

1 Corinthians 1:22 "and HE has identified us as HIS own by placing the HOLY SPIRIT in our hearts as the first installment of everything HE will give us." My two oldest kids will be going on a cruise to Alaska with their grandparents this summer. To say they are excited would be a huge understatement. As their anticipation grows, my workload has too! Now I must make sure t...

When I travel to a new place, I always carry a map. I not only carry the map, but I memorize the important street names and the directions I will need to be turning. That way I don't have to "look" at the map while I'm driving. In addition, I stick my oldest in the front with me. She holds the map and acts as my guide. She reminds me of the streets and turns I need to take...

Psalm 68:4 Sing praises to GOD and to HIS name! Sing loud praises to HIM who rides the clouds. Years ago I had a teacher who told us that our minds always played "background music." He explained that we all had "inner antennas" and that these antennas broadcast music from our soul. Initially, I thought he was "off his rocker." But then I started paying attention. You...

Matthew 26:74-75 Peter said "I swear by GOD, I don't know the man." And immediately the rooster crowed. Suddenly, JESUS'Words flashed through Peter's mind: "Before the rooster crows, you will deny ME three times." And he went away, crying bitterly. There are two kinds of "falling" away from the LORD. The first is the most obvious...the prodigal son (Luke 15:11-32). Th...
