No ONE Is Greater Than Our KING

S. O. A. P.

Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!

S-cripture:

Daniel 4:37
Now I, Nebuchadnezzar, praise and exalt and glorify the King of heaven, because everything he does is right and all his ways are just. And those who walk in pride he is able to humble.

O-bservation:

These were the words of King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon after the Lord had restored his sanity. For seven years, he had lived like an animal outside his palace because he verbally proclaimed that he was the source of all of his success (vs. 30). After his great declaration, God drove him from his palace, and he ate grass for seven years. Now he was restored and giving God all the praise.

A-pplication:

“No ONE Is Greater Than Our King.” This story is living proof of that statement. King Nebuchadnezzar, at the height of his success, forgot that he was mortal and began ranting about how great he was. When he did, the Almighty turned him into an animal. When he finally awakened to his senses seven years later, he realized that only God is God. Many leading Christian theologians believe we’ll share heaven with Nebuchadnezzar. Why? Because he woke up one day and acknowledged who the real God is. It’s true we are human, and that means most humans have a lifetime of seventy to eighty years. The very fact that we will all face death is proof that we’re not God. Stay low, stay near the cross, and remember, “No ONE Is Greater Than Our King.”

P-rayer:

Dear Jesus, As I humbly bow before You this AM to acknowledge that You are my Lord, help me always to remember, “There Is No ONE Greater Than Our King.” Amen

No Greater Joy

S. O. A. P.

Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!

S-cripture:

3 John 1:4 I have no greater joy than to hear that my children are walking in the truth.

O-bservation:

The Apostle John referred to the "Jesus Followers" he was writing to as his children. Just like a father, he told them, “My greatest joy occurs when I hear that you are walking in the truth.”

A-pplication:

John, being one of the Apostles, was talking in a spiritually patriarchal way. However, let's make this about a real family with a Dad and Mom and Kids. If you're reading this AM devo and you happen to fall into the category of a Mother or a Father, I have a question. What brings you the greatest joy when it comes to your children? Is it good grades or cool friends or the fact that they are attractive? Certainly every parent has a secret hope that our kids would do and be all that stuff, but here's the deal. I know a lot of people who have met those measurables who continue to give their parents and friends great heartache. Here's what I've discovered as a Father. When children decide to pursue Faith and really walk in Truth, there is ... "No Greater Joy!"

P-rayer:

Dear Jesus, This AM, I want to give You praise and thanksgiving for children who walk in truth. I'm asking for friends of mine who are believing the same will happen in time for their kids. Because there is, "No Greater Joy!" Amen

JESUS: He’s Greater Than You Think!

S. O. A. P.

Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!

S-cripture:

Psalm 86:15 But you, Lord, are a compassionate and gracious God, slow to anger, abounding in love and faithfulness.

O-bservation:

The Psalmist could only write what he knew about the Lord. He simply said that our great God is compassionate and gracious. He said He's slow to anger and abounds in the attributes of Love and Faithfulness.

A-pplication:

Living in the western part of the world, news is readily available as it happens. So much of it, however, is biased by political opinion. You hear folks on both the Left and the Right complain about the bad press they have received from the other side. If anyone in history has been besieged by "Bad Press" from both sides, it's JESUS. It's the nature of the game. The truth is, there is no one who is more loving and faithful than Jesus. There's no one you could find who is as slow to anger as Jesus. There's no one you could find who could be more compassionate or more gracious than Jesus. So for just a minute, let's disregard what your friends or acquaintances have said about Him. Let's forget about a biased press on either side of the political spectrum, and for just a minute let's clear our minds and meditate ... and after a while all you can say is ... "JESUS: He's Greater Than You Think!"

P-rayer:

Dear Jesus, This AM, as I consider You ... Truly, You are more wonderful than words can possibly express. For any reason, if I have joined the bias against You in the past, I am forever sorry! You are Greater than I can possibly imagine! Amen
