  • Lending to the Lord Devotional

    Proverbs 19:17

    The Lord does not overlook what His people do to help others. When we work to help the poor acquire basic necessities and even to prepare and train them to eventually escape material poverty, we are doing what God finds pleasing. Caring appropriately for the poor takes wisdom. There is no one-size-fits-all solution, for there are many reasons why people might be impoverished. Let us seek to aid the poor wisely, both in their material and spiritual poverty. View Resource

  • Knowing God’s Will Devotional

    Proverbs 19:21

    If you have significant decisions to make, but do not know God’s will, make a checklist—what biblical principles relate to your choices, what are your gifts, experiences, circumstances, needs, personal desires, and responsibilities to others. Review your list. Narrow your decision based on what God has revealed. Commit it to prayer. View Resource

  • The Lord’s Established Purpose Devotional

    Proverbs 19:21

    Matthew Henry also writes, “What comfort does this speak to all God’s people, that all God’s purposes, which we are sure are right and good, shall be accomplished in due time!” The Lord will surely accomplish His will, and this will is always directed toward our final good (Rom. 8:28). Even when things seem their darkest, we can trust that our Creator is working out our lives for our ultimate benefit, and in that we can rest. View Resource
