Will We Remember You?

Scripture: And do not forget to do good and to share with others, for with such sacrifices God is pleased.”  Hebrews 13:16

Devotional: As we know, the month of February is a time when we nationally pause and celebrate men and women of our heritage as we remember their contributions.  We appreciate those of the past and currently, those in the present who strive to encourage and enrich the lives of people.  I wonder, what would happen if all of us adopted the approach that we are going to do our best to make this world a better place by being a blessing to those we may encounter each day. Though you may not be recognized or appreciated for doing what you have done,  I do know one thing, even if others do not remember your good deeds, our God certainly remembers you and is pleased with you!  

Prayer: Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that we have often fallen short of your glory and your will!  We ask afresh that You will forgive us and fill our tanks with compassion and care for those who need to know that You love them and they are not alone in whatever situation or issue that they may find themselves in at this time.  Enable us to be your hand and feet as we continue this journey and one day, we look forward to hearing You say, “Well done good and faithful servant, you have been faithful over a few things and I will make you ruler on many things, in the precious name of Jesus I pray, Amen and Amen!!!

Reflective Question: Thinking about where you are right now at this very moment, what do you want people to remember when they call your name?

God’s Protection Plan For You

Scripture: “When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you.  When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze. Isaiah 43:2

Devotional: I know I am dating myself but as a child, I recall us having to go to the TV and turn it on by the dials on the console.  In today’s world, we cannot function without the TV remote and other remotes such as one for our security at our homes. We can protect our homes remotely on our cell phones to ensure safety and care, even when we are not there.  As children of God, you and I have access to the Father, even when the storms of life come our way, we will not be swept away because God’s protection plan has secured us with His presence and His provision!

Prayer: Father, I marvel at your love for me; I can never flee from your presence; thank you so much for caring for me in such a special way!  Now Lord, when the flames of trouble, heartache, and discouragement seek to steal my joy, remind me of your abiding grace to be with me always, even to the end of this age.  I give you praise, and I give you glory for being my rock in a weary land, in the name of Jesus, I pray, Amen and Amen!!!

Reflective Question: Do you feel secure with God’s protective plan or are you trying to find something else?

How God Sees Me

Scripture:  “But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.”  I Peter 2:9

Devotional: Life has a way of devaluing us because so much emphasis is put on those who have the power or influence; thus, many people are left to feel “less than” or not as important as others. However, it is truly a blessing to know that I am so valued by the Most High God!  To know that I have been set apart, for His glory, to do what He has called me to do, is awesome! Why, because of His grace and His mercy toward me!  

Prayer: Heavenly Father, we are so grateful and thankful for Your great love toward us; we worship you, we adore you, and we praise you for being our God; being our Rock and our Redeemer!  Father, we cannot thank you enough for bringing us out of utter darkness, and utter chaos, and now through Jesus Christ, we can know and experience your glory, your grace, and your generosity while we are discovering that it is You that is keeping us and it is You who is sustaining us; thank you for loving us in the name of Jesus Christ, our Lord and our Savior, we pray, Amen!  

Reflective Question: What does it mean to you to know that you are royalty to God?

His Showers of Goodness Upon Me

Scripture: “Sow righteousness for yourselves, reap the fruit of unfailing love, and break up your unplowed ground; for it is time to seek the LORD, until he comes and showers his righteousness on you.” Hosea 10:12

Devotional: Family members often resemble one another in their appearance, their attitude, and their mannerisms. For many of us, we thank God for our parents, grandparents, aunts, and uncles who raised us in understanding the blessing of an awesome God. Friends, as believers in the Lord Jesus Christ, you and I are to remember the goodness of our God as we resemble Him in being recipients of His grace and His mercy. That’s what discipleship is all about as we learn, lean, and live on His promises in spreading His goodness to a world that is desperately in need of the love of God! 

Prayer: Our Father in Heaven, Holy is thy name! We thank you for the power of the Holy Spirit who fills us with your presence so that we make a difference in the lives of those that we may encounter daily.  Heavenly Father, enable us to plant words of encouragement and help us to nurture and enrich the lives of those persons who have a desire to live for you; we desire to sow seeds of peace to those who are hurting and need your comfort,  in the name of Jesus we pray, Amen!

Reflective Question: Are you blessing others with God’s raindrops of blessings?
