Devotions for Life

Get Away From Me!

Today’s verse: “But when Simon Peter saw that, he fell down
at Jesus’ feet saying, “Go away from me Lord, for I am a sinful
man, O Lord!” (Luke 5:8).
Peter and his partners had been fishing all night with no success.
Jesus uses their boat to preach from and then tells Peter to go
back out and cast the nets. So many fish are caught that both
boats are needed, and they are so full that they are near to
sinking (Luke 5:1-11).


“I Will Fear No Evil”

Ponder: What do you fear? Why?

Scripture: “Yea, though I walk through the valley of the
shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me”
(Psalm 23:4a, NKJV).
As a child, I was afraid of the dark. I still don’t particularly
like it, but I’m no longer scared of it. David’s “valley of the
shadow of death” sounds dark and foreboding. Why, then,
wasn’t he afraid? Because the Lord was with him.


A Cinderella Story

Esther 2:1-20
Esther had not told anyone of her nationality and family
background, because Mordecai had directed her not to do
so. Every day Mordecai would take a walk near the
courtyard of the harem to find out about Esther and
what was happening to her.
