Devotions for Life

A Heart’s Desire

“You are good and what you do is good; teach us Your decrees” (Ps. 119:68).
What God is, is good and what He does is good, and what He has authorized for us is good for us! There are many who ignore the evidence of God’s authority, not for a lack of proof, but for their own desires in this life. In Psalm 119:1, we learn that God’s statutes are a heritage and joy of the believer’s heart. But it may cause those not in Christ to question why it’s a blessing to live under God’s authority.


Seven Blunders of the World

Today’s Bible Verse: “Do to others as you would have them do to you” (Luke 6:31 NIV).
Gandhi was a great civil rights leader of India, and a very wise man. One of his most famous statements was about the seven blunders of the world the lead to violence: “wealth without work, pleasure without conscience, knowledge without character, commerce without morality, science without humanity, worship without sacrifice, politics without principle.”


Panoply Of God

Today’s Verse: “Therefore, take up the full armor of God, so that you will be able to resist in the evil day, and having done everything, to stand firm” (Eph 6:13 NASU).
Among the stories of long ago, one comes to us from the days of Xerxes, king of Persia. The great king had led an arm into Greece. He found the pass at Thermophylae blocked by a small number of soldiers led by the Spartan king, Leonidas. Surprised at the temerity of the Greeks, we are told that Xerxes sent a message to them. He threatened, “Surrender to us or our soldiers will send such a shower of darts as will darken the sky.”
