S. O. A. P.
Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!
For in the gospel the righteousness of God is revealed—a righteousness that is by faith from first to last, just as it is written: “The righteous will live by faith.”
In this word from St. Paul, the author of the book of Romans, he emphasized FAITH. He said the very fact that a man or woman lives by FAITH is proof that they are righteous in God’s eyes. He then quoted from Habakkuk 2:4, where God himself said through the prophet, “The righteous will live by faith.”
If you’re getting ready to head to work this AM, or maybe you’re preparing to meet with friends or even take a trip out of town, I need to say this, “FAITH … Don’t Leave Home Without It!” There is no other way to navigate through this life of challenge without FAITH. Those who endeavor to move in their own ability only are not wise. King David said, “The fool says in his heart, ‘There is no God” (Ps. 14:1). Yet today so many folks are living and operating as if there is no God. Their actions and their speech appear to detest the very idea that there is a God. Those who are fully committed to Jesus on the other hand, are committed to Him by FAITH. Their words, their actions, and their relationships are all motivated by FAITH in the God they serve. The scripture says, “And without FAITH it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards them who earnestly seek him” (Heb. 11:6). Faith is Your connection to the Almighty. So remember, “FAITH … Don’t Leave Home Without It!”
As I prepare to leave my house today, I’m so happy that I’m heading into today with my FAITH on. I know You will reward my FAITH as You always have. I need You like never before! Amen
