• Experiencing God’s Discipline Devotional

    Thank God for keeping His hand on you. View Resource

  • Obedience and Delight Devotional

    Psalm 1:1-2

    True love for God’s law is not legalism (adding to God’s rules or demanding that we obey the civil and ceremonial laws fulfilled in Christ). Love for the law makes us try to follow it truly without imposing unnecessary or ungodly burdens on others. Do you love God’s law or do you consider it an enemy? If you have been born again, the law of God is on your side. You please God as you follow this law, by the Spirit, and thank Him for declaring you righteous in Christ apart from the law.

  • The Purpose of Wisdom Literature Devotional

    Psalm 1

    John Calvin comments on today’s passage: “God is only rightly served when his law is obeyed. It is not left to every man to frame a system of religion according to his own judgment, but the standard of godliness is to be taken from the Word of God.” If we want to enjoy the continued blessing of the Lord, we cannot act based on what we think God might want us to do; rather, we must be certain of His statutes. His moral law revealed in Scripture gives us these regulations. View Resource

  • Opposing the Lord’s Annointed Devotional

    Psalm 2:1-6

    The Westminster Shorter Catechism says that Christ executes the office of king by “subduing us to himself, in ruling and defending us, and in restraining and conquering all his and our enemies” (Q&A 26). All who oppose this work do so in vain. He will conquer the hearts of His elect, drawing them all to Himself. He will defeat His enemies and ours. He is the mighty King and Lord of all, and we need not fear anything if we are in Him.

  • God Makes It All Happen Devotional

    Psalm 2

    Our individualistic culture can make it hard for us to remember that we are accountable to more than just ourselves. Ultimately, however, we have a duty to obey the commands of our Creator. We are His creatures and must submit to His will no matter how hard it seems. Doing so requires the daily resolve to obey Him even when it is most difficult to do so. It also requires daily repentance of our failing to keep His commandments. Let us seek this day to obey our holy Creator. View Resource

  • God Makes It All Happen Devotional

    Psalm 2

    Most of us will offer a prayer of thanksgiving every time we sit down to eat a meal. While it is good to thank the Lord, we should also remember that we depend on Him not only for our food but also for every breath we take. It is only by God’s will that any of us are alive. Take time to meditate on this tremendous truth and thank our Father that He preserves the universe. Trust Him to sustain you in all things today. View Resource

  • God’s Call to Kiss His Son Devotional

    Psalm 2:7-12

    It is not difficult to get people to say nice things about Jesus when the only Jesus they know is the gentle Jesus of popular culture who makes no demands on anyone. That is not the Jesus of Scripture. We live in an era of divine patience, when God is holding back His wrath so that many may be saved. But make no mistake, this patience is not eternal. Gentle Jesus, meek and mild, will execute His wrath at the appointed time. Today is the day of salvation, tomorrow the day of wrath.

  • The Light of God’s Face Devotional

    Psalm 4

    Those people upon whom God shines the light of His glory, kindness, and love cannot help but reflect this light to those around them. Over time, as we grow in the grace and truth of Christ Jesus, we will shine forth this light ever more brightly, so we should find ourselves looking for more and more opportunities to reflect the light of Jesus the longer we are His disciples. How will you shine forth the light of Christ Jesus today? View Resource

  • A Prayer for Deliverance Devotional

    Psalm 6

    Only when we have a high view of God’s sovereignty will we be able to understand that God uses the pain in our lives to discipline us, either to show us the consequences of our sin or to keep us drawing closer to Him. When we are disciplined for our sin, in fact, He brings us to Himself and helps us understand the ways our transgression affect ourselves and others. Because God is in control of all, all of our pain is meaningful and used by Him for a good end (Rom. 8:28). View Resource

  • God’s Furious Anger Devotional

    Psalm 7:11–13

    As Christians, we are privileged to be under the eternal mercy and grace of God, not His wrath. Like those who never repent, we do not deserve to escape His wrath, for we have nothing in ourselves to make us worthy of God’s favor. But if God has brought us into a saving relationship with Jesus, we never need fear the Lord’s wrath again. He is our heavenly Father who welcomes us with open arms in Christ and lovingly disciplines us to conform us to the image of His Son. View Resource

  • God’s Furious Anger Devotional

    Psalm 7:11-13

    Christians can sometimes think that the Lord is “out to get us.” Yet though our sin as believers will incur His displeasure and His discipline (Heb. 12:3–11), Jesus has made propitiation for all who trust Him alone for salvation, and therefore, God’s wrath is not upon the believer. But if you have not trusted Christ, do not imagine that the Father’s patience toward you means He is not angry with you. Believing on Jesus is your only hope to avert this anger. View Resource

  • The Key of Church Discipline Devotional

    Psalm 7:11–13

    Dr. R.C. Sproul has often said that we must first understand the bad news if we are going to know the good news of the gospel. There is bad news for all the natural-born sons and daughters of Adam: we are under God’s wrath as long as we remain impenitent. The good news of the gospel is that those who are presently under God’s wrath will enjoy His salvation if they repent and trust in Jesus alone. Faithful gospel preaching means not wavering on either of these truths. View Resource

  • Adonai Devotional

    Psalm 8

    Humanity’s most basic sin is the desire to throw off the Lord’s external authority and become a law unto ourselves. Even we who have been transformed by His grace must likewise war against this desire, which often manifests itself in an attempt to get around His commandments or excuse behaviors and attitudes that are inexcusable. Let us endeavor daily, with the Spirit’s help, to mortify the lawlessness that is trying to overtake us. View Resource

  • Adonai Devotional

    Psalm 8

    Our greatest temptation as Christians is to live as if Jesus is not the Lord of our lives. When the culture sets the agenda for our worship and ethics, it has become our lord. If we do not confess Christ in the face of hostility at home or in the workplace, we have walked away from the authority of God. It is therefore incumbent upon us to do all we can to recognize Jesus’ authority over everything. Take time to consider the fact that Christ is Lord over all. View Resource

  • The Sovereign Glory of God Devotional

    Psalm 8

    Because God is glorious, He is sovereign over all things. Because God is sovereign over all things, He is glorious. We cannot separate these attributes of His character, and one of the reasons that we emphasize the complete sovereignty of God over every detail of creation is because we want to emphasize His glory. God is most glorified by us when we ascribe to Him full control over all things, even our salvation. View Resource
