21 Days Fast & Pray - Day 20 : Our World

 


21 Days Fast & Pray - Day 20 : Our World

Devotion - John 3:1

There is a certain feeling we have when we wait at the airport for the arrival of our friends or family members who have been away for a while. It is a natural anticipation to celebrate their homecoming. The Father eagerly desires for all to come back to Him. The verse above denotes the love of the Father lavished on those who have come to Him. In our practical life, our home is typically the place where we rest. It is where we feel loved and safe. It is also where we grow and are taught discipline. This is because home is where family gathers and love resides. The verse above assures us that He loves us so much, that He calls us His children. The Scripture also tells us that He Himself is our resting place and place where we feel safe (Ps. 91:1-2) In short, He is our home. Today, let us realize that God calls us His children! He wants us to dwell in Him because He is our Father and He is where we want to return to if we have gone astray. There is no other place we truly want to be.

Application / Self-reflection

  1. Being a believer, do we have any challenges calling God as our Father and experiencing His love as His children? Write them down and meditate on scripture verses that will assure our identity as His children and His love for us. (e.g. Rom. 8:15-16, John 3:16, Matt. 7:11-12)
  2. Have you been praying for the salvation of a certain person? Pray specifically for the person who will experience our Father's love today.

The Danger of Spiritual Infancy (Hebrews 5:11 - 6:12)

Have you met people who refuse to grow up? There are some adults who prefer to remain as children because they do not want to take on adult responsibilities. Not only is immature behaviour unpleasant to observe or deal with, the consequences are often destructive. In Hebrews 5:11-14, the writer expresses his frustration that some members of the church were refusing to grow into spiritual maturity. They were no longer trying to understand God’s word (v 11). Instead of taking on the responsibility of teaching others as they themselves had been taught, they needed to be taught the basics all over again (v12). Therefore, they were unable to take on “solid food” which is for mature Christians, and they were not able to distinguish good from evil (v14) or to understand teaching about righteousness (v13). Spiritual maturity is a necessary part of our walk with God. Remaining as a spiritual infant means that you are not good at discerning right from wrong and you will have a hard time maintain

22 Sep 2020 - Isaiah 54 : GOD’S PROMISE FOR FRUITFULNESS AND BLESSING

Daily Devotion Tuesday 22nd September  Isaiah 54 – GOD’S PROMISE FOR FRUITFULNESS AND BLESSING    This scripture is a beautiful promise of encouragement and affirmation to God’s people. If you have served God faithfully, but you feel discouraged, if you feel that your effort thus far has not borne any fruit, if you feel that you have been despised or looked down upon, this promise is for you.    God tells the “barren woman” to sing and shout for joy, because God will give her the desire of her heart and gift her with more children than she can imagine (v1). This is a prophecy for the increase and expansion of the nation of Israel through the birth of many children, and a promise that the city would be rebuilt. The barren woman could also mean a person or a church that is feeling discouraged, unfulfilled or foolish. Perhaps you feel foolish and discouraged for putting your trust in God for so long, but you have not experienced the results that you expected? If you are feeling discourage

A prophet prophesies and the church fully obeys (Acts 11:27- 12:4)

During this time some prophets came down from Jerusalem to Antioch. 28 One of them, named Agabus, stood up and through the Spirit predicted that a severe famine would spread over the entire Roman world. (This happened during the reign of Claudius.) 29 The disciples, as each one was able, decided to provide help for the brothers and sisters living in Judea. 30 This they did, sending their gift to the elders by Barnabas and Saul. 12 It was about this time that King Herod arrested some who belonged to the church, intending to persecute them. 2 He had James, the brother of John, put to death with the sword. 3 When he saw that this met with approval among the Jews, he proceeded to seize Peter also. This happened during the Festival of Unleavened Bread. 4 After arresting him, he put him in prison, handing him over to be guarded by four squads of four soldiers each. Herod intended to bring him out for public trial after the Passover. When Jewish believers from Cyprus (Europe) and Cyrene (Liby
