Find Your Strength

Find Your Strength

Muscles need to be used to work properly. If a muscle goes with exercise, it will atrophy. When a muscle diminishes, the person loses strength and isn’t as strong. To regain strength, that muscle has to be used beyond its capacity to grow, which leaves people exhausted. Where do you find your strength? David shows us his source.

‭‭PSALMS‬ ‭84:5

“How blessed is the man whose strength is in You, In whose heart are the highways to Zion!”

David was a mighty man who was followed by multitudes of mighty men. He sleighed Goliath and got the foreskins of two thousand men to win the hand of Saul’s daughter. If you picture a strong man in the bible, he is one of the ones you think about. This is what makes this Scripture so intriguing. David didn’t rely upon his strength. He found it in the Lord. He modeled what the prophet Zechariah said: “Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit says the Lord.” David tapped into that strength by going to the House of the Lord and worshipping.

Where Can You Be Found

Where Can You Be Found

Google maps is a great invention. Pull up the app on your phone, insert an address, and find the path of least resistance. There is one flaw. Sometimes the path of least resistance isn’t the best. I have used the map several times, and it has taken me to a service entrance or on a windy path that took twice as long. If someone was to look for you, where can you be found?

‭‭LUKE‬ ‭24:52-53‬

“And they, after worshiping Him, returned to Jerusalem with great joy, and were continually in the temple praising God.”

After Jesus ascended to heaven, the disciples didn’t get into a period of mourning; they didn’t go back to their old lives. They went and worshipped Him in the temple. Their hearts were full of joy, and they made it a daily habit of going to the temple and praising God. In the Jewish culture, they regularly stopped working in the mid-afternoon and would go to the temple to worship. The Apostles used that time to preach the gospel at Solomon’s porch and worship together.

Are You Dead or Alive

Are You Dead or Alive

Are you surprised how crazy people have become about zombies? TV shows like The Walking Dead and movies like World War Z have brought the obsession with the living dead to the mainstream. In all of these shows, the heroes need to determine if a person is dead or alive. If they are zombies, they must be eliminated. Did you know that before you came to Jesus, you were dead in your trespasses? You were part of the living dead, but Jesus in His great mercy made you alive!

‭‭EPHESIANS‬ ‭2:4-5

“But God, being rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in our transgressions, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved),”

You have been saved by grace. That means you were guilty of your sins and deserving of the consequences, but God, in His infinite mercy, extended forgiveness, and your slate was wiped clean. This shows how deep He loves you. You were once dead but now have been made alive by the atoning work of Jesus on the cross. Live the life Jesus has given you. Don’t long for your old sins. Focus forward and keep your eyes on Jesus, and He will direct your path.

Choose to Forgive

Choose to Forgive

One of the dangerous paths people can get on is trying to guess people’s motivations behind why they did something. The problem is that we always assume the worst in people, and it could’ve been a simple misunderstanding. When Jesus was on the cross, He asked His Father to forgive the people because they didn’t know what they were doing. Be like Jesus and choose to forgive.

‭‭LUKE‬ ‭23:34‬

“But Jesus was saying, “Father, forgive them; for they do not know what they are doing.” And they cast lots, dividing up His garments among themselves.”

Imagine the state of mind that Jesus was in as He hung on the cross. There were nails in His hands and feet, His back was torn up from being whipped, and people were mocking Him on the ground. In the midst of that, He asks His Father to forgive them because they didn’t know what was happening. You can’t imagine doing that, can you? Remember this scene if you ever wonder how God can forgive you of your sins. He came to earth to take our sins and give us His righteousness. You can’t beat that trade.

A Spirit of Wisdom

A Spirit of Wisdom

The popular in education saying is “knowledge is power.” There is some truth to that, but knowledge is only valuable when used and transformed into wisdom. There are a lot of intelligent people who know everything they should do but do the opposite. The Apostle Paul wants you to have a spirit of wisdom as you grow in your knowledge of Jesus Christ.

‭‭EPHESIANS‬ ‭1:17

“that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you a spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of Him.”

In almost every one of Paul’s epistles, he writes a prayer for the people. It starts most letters like this one in Ephesians, but there are a few in the middle. In these prayers, you see Paul’s love for the people and his heart to see them grow in their faith. Each one is specific to the particular church and reflects what they are going through. Here he wants Jesus to give them a spirit of wisdom and a revelation in the knowledge of Him.

Become Like a Child

Become Like a Child

Sometimes I look at the lives of my children, and I envy them. They are carefree, and having fun is always at the top of the list. I’m usually awoken out of that daze by some drama or problem they bring home from school, and I remember why I am thankful I am an adult. Jesus tells us that if we are going to follow Him, we need to become like a child.

‭‭LUKE‬ ‭22:26

“But it is not this way with you, but the one who is the greatest among you must become like the youngest, and the leader like the servant.”

Jesus had a way of flipping everything common belief on its head. The greatest in His day were those who had crowds who followed them. They reveled in having others serve them and the downtrodden coming to them for charity. Jesus flips this upside down by saying if you are going to follow Him, you need to be like a child and take the position of a servant. Serving others was repugnant to the religious and political leaders. A sign of influence was how many servants you had in your house.

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.
