Devotions Week 33:
Every man or woman is born into this world to do something unique and something distinctive; and if he or she does not do it, it will never be done. ~ Benjamin E. May
|Our Bodies, offered as living sacrifices to God. Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind…||Romans 12:2
|Christian weapons. The weapons we work with are not the weapons of this world. On the contrary, thy have divine power to demolish strongholds. We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.||2 Corinthians 10:4-5
|Leaving all worldly things to follow Jesus. Jesus looked to them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible… everyone who has left houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or wife or children or fields for my sake will receive a hundred times as much and will inherit eternal life.”||Matthew 19:26, 29
|Jesus the Way, Truth and Light of the World. “Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that their deeds will be exposed. But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what they have done has been done in the sight of God.”||John 3:20-21
|The supremacy of Christ. He is the image of the invisible God, the first-born over all creation… He is before all things and in him all things hold together.||Colossians 1:15, 17
|Through Christ all things are possible. “I tell you the truth, anyone who has faith in me will do what I have been doing. He will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father. And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Son may bring glory to the Father.”||John 14:12-13
|The Day of the Lord. The Lord is not slow in keeping His promise, as some understand slowness. He is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance. But the day of the lord will come like a thief…||2 Peter 3:9-10
Lord I come to you let my heart be changed, renewed
Flowing from the grace that I found in You
And Lord I’ve come to know the weaknesses I see in me
Will be stripped away by the power of Your Love.
Hold me close let your love surround me
Bring me near draw me to your side.
And as I wait I’ll rise up like the eagle
And I will soar with you Your Spirit leads me on
In the power of your love.
Lord unveil my eyes. Let me see You face to face.
The knowledge of your love as you live in me.
Lord renew my mind as Your will unfolds in my life
In living everyday by the power of Your love.
