Devotions for Life

Blessed Or Stressed?

Text: “I came that they may have life, and may have it abundantly” (John 10:10).

Jesus said that He came to give us an abundant life. This includes a lot of things; a lot of blessings.
The ultimate blessings come when we reach our eternal home, in heaven, with our Lord and all the saints. But, in this life, there are many blessings as well. Unfortunately many who profess to be Christians may be missing out on these blessings.


Our Great Creator

“For thou did create all things, and because of thy will they were, and were created” (Revelation 4:11b).

For the last several decades, scientists have been searching for other planets like our planet Earth. With millions of stars in our solar system, they figure there must be another planet that can support life. They look for planets in the Goldilocks Zone, that distance from a sun that is neither too hot nor too cold to sustain life.


When My Best Has Been Done

“Surely every man at his best is mere breath” (Ps. 39:5).

A popular process in both schools and churches today is to teach that when we do our very best, it’s good enough. In truth, teaching and preaching should bring about continued growth, both as it occurs and after it is over. There should be improvement, not just personal satisfaction. The truth is that in finding our best, we will come to realize it is usually surpassed by someone considered better.
