"Who Do YOU Say That I AM?" (#379)

Posted Apr 9th 2010, 07:14 by Dear Jesus Devotionals on Inspiration

Dear Jesus:
“… But who do YOU say that I am?” (NKJV – Emphasis Added)
There are times in our lives when it seems like we are directly and particularly confronted with our perception of WHO YOU REALLY ARE TO US.  Not who our pastor says You are, not who our elder says You are, but who do WE say that You are?
©      If we lose our job, do we REALLY believe that You are Jehovah Jirreh, Our Provider?
©      If we...

Prophesy Your Victory!" (#378)

Posted Apr 7th 2010, 06:51 by Dear Jesus Devotionals on Inspiration

Dear Jesus:
Then David said to the Philistine, "You come to me with a sword, with a spear, and with a javelin. But I come to you in the name of the Lord of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied.
This day the Lord will deliver you into my hand, and I will strike you and take your head from you. (1st Samuel 17:45-46)
David knew whose name he confronted the giant Goliath with – it...

"He Arose So You Can Arise!" (#377)

Posted Apr 2nd 2010, 07:51 by Dear Jesus Devotionals on Inspiration

Dear Jesus:
What a glorious truth the angel proclaimed when he said that You were not in the tomb, but that You had RISEN as You said You would!
When You arose, hope arose.  When You arose, power arose.  When You arose, peace arose.  When You arose, all that was needed for abundant and purposeful living arose. 
Dear Jesus, as we celebrate "Good Friday" today, hope rises eternal within us. Strength rises within us.  Faith rises within us.  Even if we are pressed...

"Forget The Past & Reach For The Future" (#376)

Posted Mar 31st 2010, 07:48 by Dear Jesus Devotionals on Inspiration

Dear Jesus:
It is true that we cannot look in two directions at the same time.  We can either look forward or we can look backwards, but we can’t look forward and backwards at the same time. 
There are some things in our past that we have dragged into our present that should have remained in our past.  What if, after You had parted the Red Sea for them to cross, the Children of Israel tried to go back to Egypt...

"Stand Still & See The Salvation Of The Lord" (#375)

Posted Mar 29th 2010, 07:45 by Dear Jesus Devotionals on Inspiration

Dear Jesus:
There are times when we find ourselves in the midst of battles that are beyond our control, conflicts that seem too big for us to handle, and complications that need more than sheer willpower alone to turn around. 
In response, we exhaust all of our resources and do everything we know to do.  We may even try to fix the situation by forcing a particular outcome, only to make matters worse.  And, too often, we fight these battles ourselves...

"You Are NOT Forgotten" (#374)

Posted Mar 24th 2010, 08:11 by Dear Jesus Devotionals on Inspiration

Dear Jesus:
 “Then God REMEMBERED Rachel, and God listened to her and OPENED her womb.  And she conceived and bore a son, and said, “God has taken away my reproach.”” Genesis 30:22-23 (NKJV)
There are times when we may feel that You have forgotten us.  But, it is clear in Your word that You never forget Your People.  If earthly parents can never forget their own children, how could You, being far superior and better in every respect and regard, ever forget...

"God is LARGE and In Charge! (#374)

Posted Mar 22nd 2010, 06:00 by Dear Jesus Devotionals on Inspiration

Dear Jesus:
No matter what circumstances look like, no matter how we feel, we must remind ourselves and others that God is Large and in Charge.
Too often, we become preoccupied with the size or largeness of our problems.  But, we need to become preoccupied with the size and the largeness of our God.  Instead of magnifying and lifting up our difficulties, as Children of promise and hope, let us magnify and LIFT UP our God.
Dear Jesus, every knee must bow and every...

The Ultimate In "Room Service" (#373)

Posted Mar 18th 2010, 08:07 by Dear Jesus Devotionals on Inspiration

Dear Jesus:
Talk about “Room Service” -- the outpouring of the Holy Ghost on the disciples in the Upper Room on the day of Pentecost – now, that’s Room Service. 
You have NOT left us powerless or without support in this world.  You gave us the Holy Spirit who empowers, energizes, and re-fires us among many other things.  The presence of the Holy Spirit never runs dry.  We can never exhaust His vast and unlimited reservoirs of joy, peace, faith, and...

"You Are God's Property - Evict The Devil!" (#372)

Posted Mar 10th 2010, 08:01 by Dear Jesus Devotionals on Inspiration

Dear Jesus:
Quite frankly, there are some areas where the enemy may be trespassing in our lives, and we need to immediately evict him.  We are, after all, GOD’S PROPERTY.  We are, after all, the temples of the Holy Spirit. 
Perhaps Satan is squatting in, oppressing, or latching on to our relationships, finances, or bodies.  You have told us that You have given us power to tread over all the powers of the enemy.  Yet, instead of taking authority over the...

"Turning Water Into Wine" (#371)

Posted Mar 5th 2010, 09:00 by Dear Jesus Devotionals on Inspiration

Dear Jesus:
The first recorded public miracle that You performed was turning water into wine.  I think there is a lot of symbolism in that event that can be applied to our lives today. 
Water, usually a life-sustaining and life-giving force in its natural state, was not sufficient for this festive occasion – the joyous celebration of a wedding.  I can imagine the music playing, the people fellowshipping, the bride and groom staring tenderly into each other’s eyes.  Then, unbeknownst to...

"Light For Your Journey" (#370)

Posted Mar 1st 2010, 08:51 by Dear Jesus Devotionals on Inspiration

Dear Jesus:
Wisdom and knowledge for day-to-day living.  Guidance and grace for interacting successfully with others.  Illumination and inspiration for seeking souls.  Direction and discernment when navigating through treacherous circumstances.  These are just some of the benefits of being led and governed by Your Word. 
Dear Jesus, Your word is brilliance personified.  It is resplendent with knowledge, love, wisdom and all that leads us in the way of wholeness, righteousness, and godly living.  We don’t have to stumble around in the...

"Straight Talkers" (#370)

Posted Feb 24th 2010, 08:24 by Dear Jesus Devotionals on Inspiration

Dear Jesus:
I love to be around people who “tell it like it is" -- not with a sense of callousness, disrespect, or insensitivity, but with a sense of purpose and power.  Their “yes” is “yes” and their “no” is “no”.  They speak truth to power. 
Straight Talkers, as I like to call them, don’t want the devil to get a foothold in people’s lives.  Instead of wasting time beating around the mulberry bush, they just go straight to the heart...

"Framing Your World" (#369)

Posted Feb 15th 2010, 08:55 by Dear Jesus Devotionals on Inspiration

Dear Jesus:
“By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible.” Hebrews 11:3
I can imagine You saying to Your People:
©      What do you want your marriage to look like?
©      At what level do you want to be at financially?
©      What dreams would you like to see come to pass for your children?
As Children of God, we are to imitate...

Are You A Gold Digger? (#368)

Posted Feb 12th 2010, 09:37 by Dear Jesus Devotionals on Inspiration

Dear Jesus:
Gold Diggers, in a worldly sense, are those men and women who associate with or marry someone chiefly for material gain.  However, in the spiritual sense, the word takes on an entirely different meaning.
To be a Spiritual Gold Digger means:
©      To pursue You with all of our hearts, minds, souls, and strength
©      To esteem, treasure, and apply the pure gold nuggets of truth found in Your Word
©      To mine the fields of this world which are full of souls...
