Good evening everyone, depending on where you are and when you are reading this! Today, we will be looking at what a devotion is and the importance of devotions. So get ready and get excited! Cause we are jumping straight into it!
“Silent Night”, is such a beautiful Christmas carol, a real classic, perfect for Throwback Thursday. Tonight we will look at a new version by the incredible Lauren Daigle.
Silent Night- Lauren Daigle
So take some time in silence to think about who God is for you. Is He your Saviour or your Lord? Or is He both? Do you give Him the time He deserves?
I know that I don’t give God enough time to change me and speak to me. Life seems to be so busy and I often miss my devotion time in the mornings. The devil loves to break your habits. When was the last time you picked up a bible and read it? I said “picked up” a bible, so one with pages and ink.
When we have questions we can run to God and blame Him without asking for answers. When we have devotion time, we drop everything and we wait on the Lord, give Him time to speak and move in us. His words may be spoken or you may just find them in the bible.
Joshua 1:8- Keep this Book of the Law always on your lips; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful.
The words are from God and can change your life. But not only can they change you but they can protect you. The bible is the Sword of the Spirit, we use it to combat the enemy who tries to test us.
So I ask you again. When was the last time you had a silent night and say in awe of God’s power? When was the last time it was just you and God together? God calls us near to Him, this is a theme for Christmas this year. I can feel it in my spirit. But we must remember, if God calls us near, we don’t have to listen. This is so sad, because sometimes we don’t listen. Move to God and He will move in you.
This Christmas and leading into next year, build some habits. Start having devotions daily. Come join us everyday and read one of our devotions which could help you as you pray to God for strength and help. Wait on the Lord. Give Him space and time. Don’t let your heart be hardened! And finally, read The Word! There is so much knowledge and power in the bible, we just need to blow the dust off and start reading!
God Bless you all! Merry Christmas!
