          Daily Devotion

                                                  JULY 31


Good morning <<First Name>>, this is the day that the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it!

THOUGHT FOR TODAY: BARRIERS TO BEING GOD’S TEMPLE -1
Rom 12:2 Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is – His good, pleasing and perfect will.

Why is it that we often struggle to live as God’s temple?

First, were we never designed by God to operate independently of Him.

The animal kingdom couldn’t function without God either, but unlike us, they have no choice. We have the choice to accept God’s love for us in Christ or reject it, and God continues to love us.

Even as a child of God, filled with His Holy Spirit, we still have a choice to live for His praise and glory or not. When we choose not to, we tarnish our testimony of Him in our lives, and we create a barrier  to being God’s temple. Yet, when we function by the power of the Holy Spirit in our everyday living, as a child of God, we glorify God, and others see in us a reflection of His love, grace and mercy.

Let us pray together:
Prayer (pray aloud with me):  Dear Heavenly Father,You never ever designed me to operate independently of You, yet how many times have I made choices and decisions without ever consulting You first. You have given me this awesome but powerful gift, the gift of free-will, to choose. Even though You love me with an everlasting love, because You are LOVE. I can choose to receive Your love and let it transform my life, or I can choose to reject it. And You will still love me. Thank You Father, for Your Love for me in Christ Jesus and through the indwelling power of Your Holy Spirit. I choose to let Your love to change me so that I will be the temple that You want me to be. In Jesus loving name I pray, through the power and ministry of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

Blessings,
Jono, Sandy, Michelle & Sarah


Good morning <<First Name>>, the LORD bless you and keep you; the LORD make His face to shine upon you, and be gracious to you; the LORD lift up His countenance upon you, and give you peace, this day!

THOUGHT FOR TODAY: BARRIERS TO BEING GOD’S TEMPLE – 2
Rom 12:2 Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is – His good, pleasing and perfect will.

Why is it that we often struggle to live as God’s temple?

Second, since we came into this world physically alive but spiritually dead, we learned during our formative years to live independent of God.

We had neither the presence of God in our lives, nor the knowledge of His ways. When we were born again spiritually, nobody pushed the clear button on the programming system of our minds. For, our minds, like computors, were programmed to live independent of the LORD. that is why Paul says what He does in our reading for today.

Thus, even as children of God, filled with His Spirit, we can choose to renew our minds with the Word of God, or not. We can choose to walk in total dependence upon the LORD, or not. 

When I choose to walk in dependence upon the LORD, I become the temple God wants me to be!

What choice are you making as a child of God – dependence or independence?

Let us pray together:
 Prayer (pray aloud with me):  Dear Heavenly Father, I praise and thank You for blessing me and keeping me. For shining upon me, and being gracious to me; and lifting up Your countenance upon me, and giving me peace, this day. I confess, repent and renounce the choices I have made of living independently of You, even as Your child. I have seen the result, and it has not been good. I choose to renew my mind with Your Word, and live in total dependence upon You. In Jesus’ name I pray through the power and ministry of the Holy Spirit. Amen

Blessings,
Jono, Sandy,  Michelle & Sarah
