My Daily Devotional


Be An Overcomer

“He who overcomes will inherit all this, and I will be his God and he will be my son.”
Revelation 21:7

Has life gotten you down, and you don’t know where to turn, and you know there is something much better waiting? I have spent much of my life being an “overcomer”. I had a difficult time during my early years, with my speech, as I inherited a stuttering problem from my father. This has haunted me throughout my life, although I have been able to overcome almost all of it as I have gotten older. I had to overcome being the youngest person in my school, which caused many social problems as I was growing up. I was often the youngest person in administration in my jobs throughout the years, which caused some credibility issues, as people normally don’t like taking orders from someone much younger than they are. Life is full of areas where we have to be overcomer’s to survive. I know it would be nice to ride through life on a pink cloud with harps playing in the background, but this is not what life is like. We are not in kindergarten as we progress through life; we are in a battle. Satan is attacking us wherever we go, and in whatever we do, and if he can make us feel insecure, worthless, and with no sense of self worth, he has won the battle. But, you have someone that will help you fight your battles, as God does not want you to face your struggles alone. He will be with you each step of the way, to give you strength, comfort and His peace, as you do battle with Satan. You will all face your own giants, whatever they might be, and you must learn to overcome and defeat them. Don’t let Satan get the victory, and cause you not to be the person God wants you to be. Don’t walk around as defeated Christians, but become victorious Christians. You can become a conqueror, as there is nothing that can keep you from being victorious, when you have Jesus with you.

My Daily Devotional


Be Prepared

“But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light.”
John 3:21

There are not many people that are not familiar with how our justice system works. Many may have been in a court room at one time in their lives, or have seen others that have been. When we face the judge we have to be prepared and have a plan, or the results could be devastating. Anyone who has accepted Jesus into their hearts as their Lord and Savior, has a plan, as God has provided this through all His commandments. We only have to say “Yes Lord”, thank you for giving me your plan for my life. Then we have to be obedient and follow God’s plan. God gives us the ten commandments as our main goal, but it’s not just the ten commandments, that we must follow. We must read and study the rest of God’s Holy word as it contains the plan for us to follow in all aspects of our life. When we accept God’s gift of salvation, we must search for the answers to all of life’s other situations. Just as in our court rooms, the judge will say, “there is no such thing as ignorance to the law,” and we cannot claim that we did not know about all that God requires of us. I want all of you to realize that someday you are going to stand before God and be judged on your obedience to God’s laws, and you cannot say, Lord, I did not know about this.” When you accepted Jesus into your heart, you agreed to make him first in all that you do, this means that you are to read your Bible, pray, and seek His wisdom. You fellowship with Him daily, and let Him speak to you through the Holy Spirit that now lives within you. You let Him lead and guide you to do all the right things. You get rid of all sin in your life. The time is coming when you will be judged, don’t be found ignorant, but be prepared.

My Daily Devotional


Forgiveness Is The Key

“Then Peter came to Jesus and asked, Lord how many times shall I forgive my brother when he sins against me? Up to seven times? Jesus answered, I will tell you, not seven times, but seventy-seven times.”
Matthew 18:21-22

The word forgiveness is one of the most used words in the Bible, and has several different meanings depending upon its use. One meaning is used to describe the forgiveness of our sins, if we turn our lives over to Jesus, and trust Him for our salvation. Another meaning of forgiveness, is where we are asked to forgive others who have done wrong to us, injured us in some way, and the process of putting this in our past, and letting go of the hurt, and not holding this against the people who hurt us.. This is one of the more difficult things to overcome in most of our lives, but if we are not able to overcome this obstacle, it will be difficult for us to have the real peace and joy in our lives that we are looking for. Not being able to forgive others will prevent us from having the relationship with God that we want, and receiving all of God’s blessings. It is so easy for all of us to make excuses, and use the phrase, “it’s not my fault”, to describe our current situation. I know if may be hard to forgive someone who has done an injustice to you, hurt you and injured you in some way. However, the only way you can get on with your life and be happy with yourself, is to forgive these people that have harmed you. When you don’t forgive, you’re not hurting the other person, and you’re not hurting God. You’re only hurting yourself. If you want to have the happiness in your life that God wants you to have, you must forgive. Forgiveness will relieve your hurts and pains of the past. It will bring back the happiness and joy in your life. If you carry around bitterness, anger and resentment against someone, you will never be free for God to work in you as He wants. Once you decide to release the bitterness that you have stored inside, you will then be able to reap God’s blessing for your life. It’s up to you, however, to go the extra step and decide that you want to let go of the past, and forgive and forget the past disappointments and hurts. Only then will you be able to receive God’s full blessings. Bitterness and pent up anger against someone that you have not forgiven, will keep your prayers from being answered. In the scriptures, Jesus tells us that if forgive others that sin against us, He will also forgive us. Matthew 6:15 “For if you forgive men when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you.” What better reason do we have to forgive others so that our sins will also be forgiven? In all of our lives, we have all had negative things happen to us. These could have been last week, last month or years ago when somebody has hurt us. Too often, instead of letting this hurt go, and giving it to God, we’ve held on to it. We haven’t forgiven, and now we are faced with the negative attitudes, and not having the peace and joy in our lives that we should have. We must release all the pain and hurt from inside us, and not let what happened in the past affect our future. We need to trust God, ask Him to help us forgive others, and release the hurt and pain from our life, and get back our positive attitude, and the peace and joy that we need. We must learn to forgive to be free. Forgiveness is a choice, but it is not an option if we want to live a happy life. Is there anyone that you hold bitterness in your heart against, and need to forgive? If there is, today is the day that you need to forgive them. Don’t keep God’s blessing from flowing in your own life by your lack of forgiveness to others.

My Daily Devotional


A Sin Free Life

“To the pure, all things are pure, but to those who are corrupted and do not believe, nothing is pure.”
Titus 1:15

Today, I want each of you to think about the kind of life you are living, and whether it is the kind of life God wants you to live? God wants you to live a sin free life, and the Bible tells us the penalty of sin is death. When we try to compromise the truth of God’s word, we are left with nothing. Many pastors and churches have quit preaching about sin, for fear of offending people, and unfortunately have turned into little more than a social gathering, and a place to be entertained on Sunday’s. I am afraid that this is true not only in the church today, but it is true in the lives of many people as well. There is no such thing as a little sin, as sin by its very definition is rebellion against God. You will either obey God or you don’t, as there is no middle ground. You are either living in accordance with His Word, or you are living in rebellion to His Word, and there is no room for compromise. I believe that the problems that many people face today, is due to the fact that they chose to compromise God’s word, and don’t understand that their way doesn’t work, but God’s way does. Whenever we choose to compromise the truth of God’s Word, there is always a price to pay. Satan will always give you great reasons why it is ok to compromise in certain situations or circumstances, but remember that Jesus tells us in John Chapter 10 that “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life.” Think about getting rid of the sin in your life today, and don’t let the enemy deceive you into compromising God’s Word. Follow God’s way, as that is where you will find the truth. Today is the day that you can choose to ask Jesus into your heart and receive the greatest gift you will ever receive, an eternal home in Heaven. You will also get the Holy Spirit to come live in you and help you resist the temptations of Satan. You will then be equipped to live a sin free life.

My Daily Devotional


God’s Grace Is Sufficient

“But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.”
2nd Corinthians 12:9
Have you ever thought about how God gives us strength to get through each day, and what life would be like without him? There are many days that we all feel that we do not have the strength or energy to get up and face the day, but somehow God gives us the energy, and we are able to breeze through the day. Then there are days that we think we cannot handle one more bit of bad news, but when we receive it, somehow he empowers us to handle it. Sometimes there are days when we wonder if the money will be there, when the bills come in, but somehow he provides a way, and the bills are paid. There are other days when temptations seem too strong for us to resist, but somehow he provides a way of escape, and strength to resist. There are many examples that I could use where God gives us just enough strength and energy to get through, whatever trouble and trials that comes our way. We all have difficult times in our life, but when we face these struggles, God is always there to help us get through them. He promises us that he will never forsake us or leave us, and will never load us down with troubles that are more than we can bear. Yes, God is always there by our side, even though we do not think about him, or call on him as often as we should, he never leaves our side. God can give us strength to get through our difficult times, and can give us wisdom and guidance, to handle any situation that comes our way. I would encourage each of you, to remember that God is always there for you. When you are faced with any problem or difficulty, call upon God. He will be there with you, helping you deal with your situations, giving you strength, and the energy necessary to overcome any difficulty.

My Daily Devotional


Be Happy

“You will keep in perfect peace, him whose mind is steadfast, because he trusts in you.”
Isaiah 26:3

Just this week I had a friend whose mother is 92 years old and had fallen and they had to place her in a nursing home because they could not care for her medically at home. She is almost legally blind, and as they wheeled her down the hall to her room they were describing the room to her. He said they visually provided a description of what the room looked like, including the eyelet draperies that hung on the windows. Even before they got to the room she said “I love it.” The nurse said but you haven’t even seen the room yet, just wait until we get you there. “That doesn’t have anything to do with it I love the room said his mother.” As he was telling me this I was reminded that happiness is something you decide on ahead of time. Whether we like our room or not doesn’t depend on how the furniture is arranged, or the kind of draperies that hang on the windows, but rather depends upon how we arrange our minds. Philippians 4:11 “I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances.” This is wonderful advice the Apostle Paul is telling us in the scripture above, as we need to genuinely appreciate whatever God gives us. Whether we are living in poverty or in great abundance we need to be thankful for all the things that God provides. We need to wake up each morning with our minds made up that we will love whatever God has in store for us. It’s a decision we need to make each morning. When we wake up we have a choice; we can spend our day in bed recalling the difficulties we have had in our past, or get out of bed and be thankful for the things that God provides. Each day is a gift, and as long as our eyes are open, we need to focus on the new day and all the happy memories we have stored away. We need to be thankful for this day and what God has in store for us. Old age is like a bank account. We can withdraw from what we have put in it. We need to deposit a lot of happiness, a lot of wonderful memories, a lot of the good times from our past. We do not want to deposit the baggage of our lives, the hurts, the disappointments, the worries and our past troubles. When we begin to make withdrawals from our bank accounts, we only want to withdraw the good things of our lives, our happiness, our joy and our happy memories. God wants us to be happy and if we are happy with ourselves this will shine through to others, and then we can be a true witness to others. We can choose to be happy each and every day of our life, this is our choice. We must choose to be happy and contented with what God gives us.

My Daily Devotional


Our God Can Heal

“Heal me, O Lord, and I will be healed; save me and I will be saved, for you are the one I praise.”
Jeremiah 17:14

Having worked in health care for over 45 years I have naturally been concerned with sickness and have learned much during this time. I believe God cares about our spiritual life and also our physical life. He created the human body, and he is pleased when we enjoy health and vigor, but in this world our bodies endure sickness, pain and decay. Sometimes we abuse our own bodies, and when many of our ailments occur we don’t always understand or know why God has allowed these to happen to us. Jesus healed many people during his days on the earth and people are still being healed today. God still works to heal people in ways that defy medical knowledge, and it is never wrong to pray for healing, either for ourselves or others. I have witnessed many people who God has healed when my hospital had no answer as to handle their illness and see them leave the hospital with the physicians scratching their heads. God does still heal today. The Bible tells us to pray for whatever we need, and that surely includes freedom from pain. But healing does not always occur, even to the most loving, God centered people, and we don’t understand. The Bible promises us that if we are not healed in this life however, that there is something greater waiting for us afterward. We know that our earthly bodies are wasting away each day, but that 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. Many of us grow weary in our present bodies, but we will have a new body in heaven that will be without any pain or suffering. Our new body will last forever and will not be subject to decay but will have everlasting life. To all that are reading this devotional today that are in pain and suffering from some illness, and have given up hope for a cure, I want to tell you that there is still hope when you turn your illness over to God. He can heal your body, just as Jesus did when he walked on this earth. Turn to God today and ask Him for your healing, ask Jesus to come into your heart and forgive you of your sin. Promise to obey His command and let Him be first in all that you do. Jesus died for your sins and gave you the promise of an eternal home in Heaven. Turn your cares and worries over to God who can still heal today.
