• God and King Devotional

    Psalm 21

    James 1:5–8 contains the incredible promise that the Lord will give wisdom to all who sincerely ask Him for it in faith. Ultimately, Christ is our wisdom, and He will never cast out anyone who comes to Him by faith alone (1 Cor. 1:30–31). God has given us Christ, the wisdom of His salvation; however, He also gives us wisdom to deal with our daily successes and failures. As we study the Wisdom Literature and seek the Lord’s face, He will make us wise. View Resource

  • God’s Loving, Personal Knowledge Devotional

    Psalm 139:13-24

    Our knowledge of God’s character not only encourages us to pray but it also helps keep us from sin. John Calvin writes, “One great reason of the carnal security into which we fall, is our not considering how singularly we were fashioned at first by our Divine Maker.” When we remember how we were singularly made by the Lord, we are more aware that we are His possession, and therefore we are bound to do what is necessary so that we are holy as He is holy (Matt. 5:48).

  • The Coming Mighty God Devotional

    Isaiah 9:6-7

    There is much that we can learn about the person and work of Christ by studying the titles given to Him in Scripture. This task entails studying the Old Testament background of the New Testament titles given to Jesus. Passages such as Isaiah 9:6–7 provide this background information, and there are many others to consider. If you want to know Jesus better, spend time in the Old Testament looking at what it has to say about His names and titles. View Resource

  • The Blessing of Forgiveness Devotional

    Psalm 32

    God’s free pardon in our justification is a great blessing indeed, but it is only one part of what happens. We are also declared righteous in Christ and admitted to the full rights and privileges afforded to Him for His faithfulness. It is a good thing to be forgiven of sin, but our faith is enriched when we realize that God has not only taken our sin from us but has given us the righteousness of Christ. That is our secure anchor in the storm. View Resource

  • The Lord, Our Shepherd Devotional

    Psalm 23

    In Psalm 8, David asks the Lord why He is so mindful of human beings, creatures who can seem so insignificant in comparison to the grandeur of the rest of creation. We should never fail to marvel that the self-existent and eternal Creator takes interest in us. He does so for the sake of His own name, for He has made us in His image. bearing this image is a distinct privilege and also a sober responsibility, so let us be thankful that God does pay attention to us and serve Him with gladness.
