Episode 201

TODAY’S READING:

He guides the humble in what is right and teaches them his way.

Psalm 25:9

 

Every day is an opportunity to grow closer to Jesus. Every day we get to connect with Him, grow deeper in His understandings. He wants to teach you His way.

 

Doing life God’s way isn’t hard. But it requires you to say no to your flesh every single day. I read the verse above, and I wanted to go back through scripture to really see what it says about His way.

 

1 John 2:6 says the one who says he abides in Him ought himself to walk in the same manner as He walked.

 

So we are to abide in him and walk like him.

 

Psalm 18:30 says As for God, His way is blameless;

 

The word of the Lord is tried;

 

He is a shield to all who take refuge in Him.

 

I really love that it says the word of the Lord is tried. Meaning this way of life, being humble, walking with the Lord, saying no to temptations, serving those around us, it’s a tried and tested way of living. It gives us strength when our world crumbles; it gives us clarity when we need it. It allows the bigger voice in our life to be His.

 

As you go about your day today, look for the areas in your life that are not aligned with how God wants you to live and ask yourself why. Is it a need for control, or simply something you do not want to give up. Like we started today, Devo, He wants to teach you His way; what is He trying to teach you today?

 

PRAYER

Father God, thank you for walking with us daily. Thank you for continuing to do work for us. We ask that you help us and guide us in what you are trying to teach us. We thank you for a beautiful weekend and for opening our eyes on yet another Monday. Every day is a blessing, and we ask that you work deeper in us every single day. We surrender our idea of life for life after you. We love you with everything in us. It is in your Holy name that we pray, AMEN!

Hi, I'm Ali.
I want to encourage you on your faith journey!

I'm the coffee obsessed baker from Miami, FL who got too busy to find time to read scripture everyday. I knew my life was better with Jesus and I knew I wasn't the only one struggling with finding alone time with God every morning, so I put my dreams of opening a bakery aside and set out to produce a five minute daily devotional. What first started as an email chain, has now flourished into a beautiful community and I am so happy you are here!

MY TESTIMONY

We are a faith based community in pursuit of daily prayer. All it takes is five minutes - we know you're busy but He loves you still.
