Devotions for Life


Ponder: Does God Answer Prayer?
Scripture: “Whatever things you ask, when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them” (Mark 11:24, NKJV).
A brother spoke to a friend about religion.
Friend: “Do you pray?”

Brother: “Yes.”

Friend: “Do you get what you ask for?”

Brother (being honest): “Sometimes, but not always.”

Friend: “So prayer doesn’t work; and God doesn’t exist.”


What Holds You Back?

“For the love of Christ controls us, having concluded this, that one died for all, therefore all died” (2 Corinthians 5:14 NAU).

My father in law had a guard dog at work that was chained to a chair when he was in his office. One day I went to talk to him. He was with a salesman and he got up to show the salesman something. After they walked out I was still standing next to the door way. I didn’t know the chain was long enough for him to jump me. I was bit in the arm and stomach before I could move away. Fortunately, I got away, but not before I got hurt.


They Don’t Know What They Are Missing

“How shall we escape, if we neglect so great a salvation?” (Hebrews 2:3).

The world’s population stands at seven billion and a few hundred thousand people. Those who claim to be Christians equal a little over thirty-one percent of the seven billion. These statistics mean that nearly five billion people living on Earth do not know Christ or have not obeyed Him.
