Thursday's Dose - 3rd September 2015

Be Committed Spending Time in Prayer

Today's Scripture

“Can a man scoop fire into his lap without his clothes being burned?” - (Proverbs 6:27).

Thoughts for Today

“The safest road to hell,” wrote C.S. Lewis, “is the gradual one—the gentle slope, one that is soft underfoot, without sudden turnings, without milestones, without signposts.”

Many Christians do not believe they can or will ever drift away from God. They see their devotion as being solid. However, compromise and a lack of spiritual discipline quickly open the door to temptation and sin.

Once we accept Christ as our Savior, the enemy knows his work of eternal destruction has been thwarted. However, he is relentless in his effort to work havoc in the lives of God’s people. Therefore, he goes to work in a different way. He knows that he cannot have our souls, but he remains committed to destroying our lives.

One of his greatest weapons against the body of Christ is pride. He seeks to tell us we are complete and worthy apart from the Lord. He wants us to feel good about our talents and abilities—so much so that we begin to make decisions without considering God’s purpose and plan. Before we know it, we have believed a lie and departed from our first love, which is the love of Christ.

There is nothing wrong with knowing God has gifted you and that He is the One who is using your abilities. The story, however, changes when you begin to take life into your own hands without regard to the Savior’s will.

Temptation by itself is not sin, but if left unchecked, it quickly leads to sin and broken fellowship with the Lord. You can say no to the subtle sin of compromise by asking the Lord to keep you close to Himself. Be committed to spending time in prayer with Him each day.

Prayer: Our Loving Heavenly Father, forgive me for the times I have compromised my love for You. Thank You for Your forgiveness and love. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, In Jesus Loving Name I Pray, Amen."

Have a Blessed Thursday and God Bless you.

Exercise More Kindness - Wednesday's Dose - 2nd September 2015

Wednesday's Dose - 2nd September 2015

Exercise More Kindness


Today's Scripture

“I will tell of the kindnesses of the Lord, the deeds for which he is to be praised . . . yes, the many good things he has done for Israel, according to his compassion and many kindnesses” - (Isaiah 63:7).


Thoughts for Today


Kindness is a characteristic of God. Out of His kindness He made a covenant with the nation of Israel. And out of kindness, He kept His side of this covenant while they rebelled and disobeyed.


It is out of kindness that Jesus left the splendor of heaven to become a man. It is out of kindness that He hung on a cross to die and pay the wages of our sin. Out of eternal love and kindness, He offers to us His precious gift of salvation.


But God’s kindness did not stop at the cross. It continues today in the lives of those who accept His Son as their Savior. The more we allow Him to work in us, the more His fruit becomes evident to those whose lives we touch each day.


As we continue to live and grow spiritually, there are several things we need to know about kindness. Sometimes, kindness requires putting ourselves in another person’s place. We need to view others as Christ does.


There are those of us who continually show kindness to others and yet seem to be incapable of showing kindness to ourselves. We allow past failures and sins to prevent us from growing. However, God’s forgiveness is complete. When we pray and seek His forgiveness, He gives it. Therefore, we must learn to forgive others and ourselves, too.


Kindness gives birth to kindness. Love extended leads to more love. As you begin to show kindness to others, you will be set free from feelings of self-condemnation. You will find yourself being empowered by the Holy Spirit to exercise more kindness more often.


Prayer: Our Loving Heavenly Father, thank You for the kindness You have shown to me and will continue to grant me as I journey with You. As I grow in showing kindness to others, reveal to me how to show kindness to myself through forgiveness for past sins. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, In Jesus Loving Name I Pray, Amen."


Have a Blessed Wednesday and God Bless you.
