God is Patient With You

God is Patient With You

If you were put in your parents’ place and had to raise you, would you be more patient than your parents or less? The answer would probably be less in most cases. That’s because you know your inner-self and what your intentions are. God is patient with you even though he knows your thoughts and motives.

‭‭2 Peter‬ ‭3:9

“The Lord is not slow about His promise, as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing for any to perish but for all to come to repentance.”

Peter shows you three ways that God is patient with you. First, He knows the best timing to fulfill his promises. While you may think God is slow in working in your life, God sees it as giving you what you need when you need it. Most people act like impatient children and want everything now. God isn’t swayed by our whims but patiently waits until the time is right. Trust Him during this process.

Finding Refuge in the Lord

Finding Refuge in the Lord

Touring old castles can give you a picture of God’s love and protection. Those castles have been around for centuries and provided shelter and protection to the multitudes. It endured battles and weathered storms yet remain. That is what David is talking about when he describes the protection God has given him. You can find refuge in the Lord as well when you turn to Jesus in times of trouble.

‭‭Psalms‬ ‭144:2

“My lovingkindness and my fortress, My stronghold and my deliverer, My shield and He in whom I take refuge, Who subdues my people under me.”

David knew God as his protector. God had protected him as a young boy while he watched the sheep, as a young man while he was fleeing from Saul, and as an old man when he had to flee his son Absalom’s coup attempt. He saw God as his fortress that was steadfast and never wavered. Do you look at the Lord the same way? Do you recognize how God has protected you over your lifetime? When you see how He has been your shield that has delivered you repeatedly, it changes your perspective on life.

A Wealth of Knowledge and Wisdom

A Wealth of Knowledge and Wisdom

Have you ever been in the same room with someone who is incredibly smart? How did it make you feel? Were you intimidated by their knowledge or fascinated by what they had to say? Some people feel this way with God. They are either overwhelmed by how great He is or exhilarated with the wealth of knowledge and wisdom.

‭‭Romans‬ ‭11:33

“Oh, the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are His judgments and unfathomable His ways!”

Paul summarizes the immensity of God in these two statements. The depth of the knowledge and wisdom of God are too deep to plumb, and it is impossible to understand His ways. We don’t need to know the depth of His knowledge. All we need to know is that we will never reach the bottom, and it will never run out. If you ask for the wisdom of God, He will give you a double portion. Think about that for a second. The resources are infinite, and He gives you twice as much as you ask.

Rescued from Temptation

Rescued from Temptation

Old habits are hard to break. This is especially true when it comes to bad ones. The same can be said for our sin. We often repeat the same sins over and over again and really don’t have a clue how to break the cycle. Very few people possess the willpower to stop. Peter shows us another way to be rescued from temptation.

‭‭2 Peter‬ ‭2:9

“then the Lord knows how to rescue the godly from temptation, and to keep the unrighteous under punishment for the day of judgment,”

In the previous verses leading up to this one, Peter states how God brought judgment on through the flood and on Sodom and Gomorrah, yet he rescued both Noah and Lot. If the Lord rescued them, then He knows how to rescue you from temptation. This is good news for those who struggle with daily temptation. Jesus can preserve you through the trial and strengthen you through the process. The real question then is, “Are you crying out to Jesus in your time of need?”

A Teachable Heart

A Teachable Heart

Teachers have one of the most demanding jobs on the planet. I couldn’t imagine spending the whole day in a classroom with a group of students trying to keep their attention. King David had a teachable heart. He wanted to grow in his knowledge of the Word of God and was always asking to be shown the way. Do you have a teachable heart?

‭‭Psalms‬ ‭143:8‬

“Let me hear Your lovingkindness in the morning; For I trust in You; Teach me the way in which I should walk; For to You I lift up my soul.”

David wanted to wake up every morning with God on his mind. “Let me hear you lovingkindness in the morning.” It’s like saying, fill my heart with your love for today. He didn’t want to be bogged down with the day’s worries. Instead, he wanted to be lifted high above it all by receiving from the Lord. What a great example. David’s trust was where it should be, and he wanted that to lift his soul.

Our faith in Jesus Christ is a Daily Walk

The Apostle Paul used ‘walking” often in his writings, to refer to our journey with Christ. “Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise but as wise, making the best use of the time because the days are evil. Ephesians 5:15-16” Being a disciple isn’t a one-time event or something we do every once in a while, it is the daily interaction with Him. It is the step by step, one foot in front of the other walk that brings spiritual growth. It begins with the first step of salvation and continues daily by us walking with Christ.

Daily scripture reading is essential to our growth

One of the most important ways that we walk with Jesus is to read our bible. Daily scripture reading is essential to our growth as a Christian and a daily devotion can help with that. Daily Walk Devotion is about helping you take your next step of faith.

It is that daily encouragement from scripture that will help you understand the Word of God and encourage you in your faith. Every weekday there will be a devotion posted on the website that is taken from scripture. Committing to reading your bible every day is a vital spiritual discipline. Adding a daily devotion to that can inspire and sustain you as you go about your day.

Guiding you to your next step of faith

The Daily Walk Devotion’s mission is to help you take your next step of faith by writing devotions that challenge and inspire you to walk with Jesus.
