Daily Bible Scripture Devotion

After this, I saw four angels standing at the four corners of the earth, holding back the four winds of the earthso that no wind would blow on the earth or on the sea or against any tree. Then I saw another angel coming up from the east,having the seal of the living God. He cried out with a loud voice to the four angels who were permitted to harm the earth and the sea, saying, “Do no harm to the earth or the sea or the trees, until we have put a seal on the foreheads of the servants of our God.” Now I heard the number of those marked with the seal: 144,000 from every tribe of Bnei-Yisrael— 12,000 from the tribe of Judah; 12,000 from the tribe of Reuben; 12,000 from the tribe of Gad; 12,000 from the tribe of Asher; 12,000 from the tribe of Naphtali; 12,000 from the tribe of Manasseh; 12,000 from the tribe of Simeon; 12,000 from the tribe of Levi; 12,000 from the tribe of Issachar; 12,000 from the tribe of Zebulun; 12,000 from the tribe of Joseph; 12,000 from the tribe of Benjamin. After these things I looked, and behold, a vast multitude that no one could count—from every nation and all tribes and peoples and tongues—was standing before the throne and before the Lamb. They were clothed in white robes, with palm branchesin their hands and crying out with a loud voice, saying, “Salvation belongs to our God, who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb!” And all the angels were standing around the throne, along with the elders and the four living creatures; and they fell on their faces before the throne and worshiped God, saying, “Amen, blessing and glory and wisdom and thanksgiving and honor and power and might belong to our God forever and ever. Amen!” Then one of the elders answered, saying to me, “Who are these dressed in white robes, and where have they come from?” I said to him, “Sir, you know.” Then he said to me, “These are the ones coming out of the great tribulation.They have washed their robes and made them whitein the blood of the Lamb. For this reason, they are before the throne of God, and they serve Him day and night in His Temple. The One seated on the throne will shelter them. They shall never again go hungry, nor thirst anymore; the sun shall not beat down on them, nor any scorching heat. For the Lamb in the midst of the throne shall shepherd them and guide them to springs of living water, and God shall wipe away every tear from their eyes.”

Daily Bible Scripture Devotion

Dishonest scales are an abomination to ADONAI, but an accurate weight is His delight. When pride comes, then comes disgrace, but with the humble is wisdom. The integrity of the upright guides them, but the crookedness of the treacherous will destroy them. Riches make no profit in the day of wrath, but righteousness delivers from death. The righteousness of the blameless man makes his way straight, but the wicked man is brought down by his wickedness. The righteousness of the upright delivers them, but the treacherous are trapped by their desire. When the wicked dies, his hope perishes, and the hope of the strong vanishes. The righteous is rescued from trouble. Instead it comes on the wicked. With his mouth the ungodly destroys his neighbor, but through knowledge the righteous will be delivered. When the righteous do well, a city rejoices. When the wicked perish, there are shouts of joy. Through the blessing of the upright a city is exalted, but by the mouth of the wicked it is destroyed. One who despises his neighbor lacks sense, but one with discernment remains silent. A gossip reveals secrets, but one who is trustworthy conceals a matter. Without guidance people fall, with many counselors there is deliverance. Whoever puts up security for a stranger will have trouble, but whoever avoids shaking hands on such a deal is secure. A gracious woman gains honor, but ruthless men seize riches. A kind man does his own soul good, but a cruel man harms his own flesh. The wicked earn deceptive wages, but a sower of righteousness reaps a true reward. Steadfast righteousness leads to life, but pursuing evil ends in death. Perverse hearts are an abomination to ADONAI. His favor is on those blameless in their ways. Be sure, the evil will not go unpunished, but the offspring of the righteous will be delivered. Like a gold ring in a pig’s snout is a beautiful woman who lacks discretion. The desire of the righteous is only good, but the hope of the wicked only wrath. One gives freely, yet gains even more. Another withholds unjustly, and comes to poverty. A soul who blesses will prosper, and one who gives water will himself be satisfied. People curse anyone withholding grain, but blessing is on the head of one who dispenses it. A person who diligently seeks good finds favor, but to one who searches for evil, evil comes to him! Whoever trusts in his riches will fall, but the righteous will flourish like a green leaf. Whoever troubles his own household will inherit wind, and the fool will be a servant to the wise-hearted. The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life, and whoever wins souls is wise. If the righteous is rewarded on earth, how much more the wicked and the sinner!

Matthew 10:33English Standard Version

33 but (A)whoever denies me before men, (B)I also will deny before my Father who is in heaven.

In Matthew 4 Jesus was in the wilderness and the devil presented him with so many different opportunities. Opportunities of money , fame , and fortune all if he just worshiped the enemy . Of course Jesus said no (to God be the glory ) . 

But see the enemy is subtle and sometimes when people do things to us to hurt us we want to get them back . For example , what if you have a spouse who is cheating on you ? What if someone you love betrayed you and now you want revenge ? 

Well the answer is STAY RIGHT WITH GOD . 

~ don’t cheat back because you have been cheated on 

~ don’t curse back because someone has cursed at you 

~ sometimes don’t argue back because someone is trying to make you angry … 

Stay Right With God ! 

I know your flesh may be saying one thing … but align your body to the word of God … 

*many are the afflictions of the righteous …. but the Lord delivers us from them all . – Psalms 34:19

Prayer

Father even when people mistreat me… help me to stay right with you . Help me to make better decisions and not to allow the enemy to take me off course . Help me God to follow you with my whole heart . In Jesus Name, I pray … Thank God … Amen

31 But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.

Social media can cause a lot of comparison in our lives . I mean it is so easy to compare our journey , destiny , and our calling with someone simply by appearance . I want to remind you that people have a tendency to post only what they want you to see . On the bright side you don’t see the blood, sweat , and tears that people put into their success. On the other side you don’t see the silent persecutions , betrayals, storms, trials , and tribulations that they go through . Today instead of comparing yourself ENCOURAGE yourself . Speak positive affirmations and scriptures over yourself and trust God totally and fully for your prayers to be answered . In Jesus Name !

Free From Pain

1 Chronicles 4:9-10Amplified Bible

Jabez was more honorable than his brothers; but his mother named him Jabez, saying, “Because I gave birth to him in pain.” 10 Jabez cried out to the God of Israel, saying, “Oh that You would indeed bless me and enlarge my border [property], and that Your hand would be with me, and You would keep me from evil so that it does not hurt me!” And God granted his request.

When you become a parent, your eyes will be opened to a whole other world. Another world where you realize that your decisions impact your child and yourself as well. When it is just you and bad decisions become a lifestyle, it can be easy to numb the pain. However, when you give birth you realize that some pain cannot be numbed but it must be addressed. That means some relationships have to end, some tears have to be shed, and some lessons have to be learned to provide a better life for your child. Painful decisions that lead to victory seem bleak in the beginning… but in the end the Lord will bless you. When I became pregnant with my daughter the doctor’s told me to terminate her because I would die if I carried her full term. Not only that , people persecuted me and I had no support. My mother’s day was lonely and the pain that I endured cannot even be described. But now, when I look at my daughter Ruth I can say that it was all worth it. Today… view today as your new Mother’s Day. Make the decision that even if it hurts… you will make better decisions for your child or children.

Prayer

Father, help me to rely on you and not toxic relationships. Keep me safe in your arms and away from all hurt, harm, and danger. In Jesus Name, I pray… Thank God, Amen.
