• Our Ways Before the Lord Devotional

    Proverbs 5:21

    The good that we do will not save us; only the perfect righteousness of Christ can do that. However, the Lord is still pleased to reward His people for what they do in serving Jesus. Since God ponders our paths, we know that He sees all of the good that we do in Jesus’ name, so even if it is not recognized now, it will be recognized on the last day. We can be content to let much of our service remain secret because we know the One who sees in secret will reward us (Matt. 6:4). View Resource

  • The God Who Hears His People Devotional

    Proverbs 15:29

    God answers the prayer of salvation, when sinners who are not yet part of His family trust in Christ. He does not answer this prayer based on the merits of those who pray it; rather, He answers it because He regenerates those who call on Him before they call on Him. He initiates the prayer and then responds to it. He answers the prayer based on His own righteousness, for that is the only way human beings, who are wicked by nature since the fall of Adam, can be saved. View Resource

  • The Sorrow That Attends Knowledge Devotional

    Ecclesiastes 1:16-18

    Coming to understand the limitations of our knowledge and wisdom can be deeply sorrowing. At the same time, however, there are senses in which it can be liberating. First, knowing the limits of our own understanding forces us to flee for refuge to Christ and to recognize that we are ever-dependent on the grace of His wisdom. Furthermore, knowing that our wisdom is limited frees us from the burden of feeling like we must be an expert in all areas of life and knowledge. View Resource
