Devotional by Giselle
July 24th, 2014No Comments, Giselle's Devotional, by Giselle.
The main reason why I began sharing this daily devotional is that I felt that I needed to share with my friends some of the Scriptures and testimonies that had truly blessed and strengthened me throughout the years. Some of these friends happen to be single moms, while others are struggling with a completely different set of circumstances. I remember distinctly the Lord speaking to my heart in the late seventies saying, "If My people are dying of one thing, it is for lack of affirmation". It is so important that we encourage one another in these perilous and difficult times in which we live. As I re- read some of the pages I have written, I am amazed how God lifts my spirit to see that His grace has allowed me to make myself available as an edifier. The point of agreement with someone is so important. Just being there for others, and having someone there for you, is sometimes what keeps us going for another day, and ultimately to our final destination. The influence one has in his or her lifetime is a tremendous responsibility. Most people in today's society are not focused on the needs of those around them. Mostly it is on, "What is in it for me?"
Verse 2 tells us, "For men will be lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, arrogant, revilers, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, unholy, unloving, irreconcilable, malicious gossips, without self-control, brutal, haters of good, treacherous, reckless, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God; holding to a form of godliness, although they have denied its power; and avoid such men as these." In verses 16 and 17 we read, "All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be adequate, equipped for every good work." Our daily intake of God's Word teaches us, reproves us, corrects us and trains us in righteousness.
In the Word of God, such as these verses today, we are able to see whether we measure up. Am I filled with self-love, a lover of money, boastful, arrogant, without self-control, or a malicious gossip, etc.? As I let the light of the Holy Spirit search my heart through the Word of God, He is able to give me discernment, as to what area of my life needs attention. I am then ready to come humbly before the Lord, and ask Him to forgive, cleanse and heal where the need applies, and then ask Him to comfort, and fill the places where I am deficient and found wanting. What a wonderful Savior we serve, Who is the Source and Resource of all our temporal, spiritual, and eternal needs.
May I encourage you in the Lord today, to be "His encourager" for those around you, whether you think they need it, deserve it, or not.
Dearest Holy Lord Jesus: Thank You for undertaking mightily for all that concerns us today. Come by Your Holy Spirit and inspire Your People to rise up to the challenge of encouraging and affirming within Your Body. Come, and let the search Light of Your Word bring many to repentance for having been deceived into having the focus of their attention on the wrong interests. Philippians 2: 21 says, "For they all seek after their own interests, not those of Christ Jesus." Glory to You aone!
