God’s Unfailing Guidance

S. O. A. P.

Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!

S-cripture:

Numbers 23:19 (NIV) "God is not human, that he should lie, not a human being, that he should change his mind. Does he speak and then not act? Does he promise and not fulfill?"

O-bservation:

In this verse, Balaam affirms the unchanging nature of God's character. He declares that God is not like humans who may lie or change their minds. Instead, God's words are trustworthy, and His promises are sure to be fulfilled.

A-pplication:

This verse reminds us of the faithfulness and reliability of God. It challenges me to trust in His promises and to rely on His unfailing guidance in my life. In a world of uncertainty and change, I can find security in the unchanging nature of God and His word.

P-rayer:

Dear Jesus, May I always trust in your guidance and find security in your unchanging nature. amen

The Voice of Majesty

S. O. A. P.

Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!

S-cripture:

Psalm 29:4 (NIV) The voice of the Lord is powerful; the voice of the Lord is majestic.

O-bservation:

The psalmist exalts the power and majesty of the voice of the Lord. The repetition emphasizes the awe-inspiring nature of God's voice, which carries authority and strength beyond human comprehension.

A-pplication:

This verse invites us to meditate on the greatness of God and the authority of His voice. It reminds me that God's voice has the power to create, command, and bring about change in our lives. As I listen to His voice through Scripture, prayer, and the promptings of the Holy Spirit, may I respond with reverence and obedience.

P-rayer:

Dear Jesus, Help me to listen attentively to your voice and to obey your commands. Amen

Oh God, Please Forget About It!

S. O. A. P.

Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!

S-cripture:

Psalm 25:7 Do not remember the sins of my youth and my rebellious ways according to your love remember me, for you, Lord, are good.

O-bservation:

At first look, I’m reminded of the little boy (me) sitting outside of the principal’s office for something I had done. David, on the other hand, has been a true servant of God, and as an adult is almost begging God not to remember the sins of his youth.

A-pplication:

The sins of one’s youth are usually easily recalled by most any adult. I can start down a list of youthful sins that, at least once a week, I’m basically saying to the Lord, “Oh God, Please Forget About It!” But God has way too much for you and me to do for His Kingdom to be concerned about your past sins, which He has already forgiven. After He forgave you, He began calling you up higher. If you keep reminding Him about your youthful sins, you may just hear God whisper to you, “Oh Rich, Why Don’t You Forget About Your Youthful Sins?”

P-rayer:

Dear Jesus, Once, you forgave me of my sins many years ago. I’m still ashamed of some of the things I did back then. Thank you for forgetting all you forgave me of. Amen

I’m Going To Trust The Lord

S. O. A. P.

Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!

S-cripture:

Acts 27:25 So keep up your courage, men, for I have faith in God that it will happen just as he told me.

O-bservation:

These are the words Paul spoke to the people he was on board a ship with; they had been lost at sea for 14 days. An angel of the Lord had appeared to Paul in a dream and told him that everyone on the ship would be saved, even though the ship would be destroyed before reaching shore. Paul told the men to take courage because, “I’m Going To Trust The Lord.”

A-pplication:

The ship ran aground, and as it broke apart everyone jumped off the ship and somehow arrived safely on shore. What is breaking apart in your life today? Better yet, have you had to abort a safe arrival for a sure arrival instead? You may wonder what a sure arrival is. It’s the conclusion to a trip that began but plans were aborted when God stepped in. When God steps into crisis situations, He demands change that may not appear safe but will always end sure. In other words, you may not always look that good when you get there, but you’re going to get there right on time. What must you do to have a sure arrival? Simply go with what Paul decided on and say, “I’m Going To Trust The Lord!”

P-rayer:

Dear Jesus, I can’t count the many times you’ve brought me safely through the storm on a sure foundation and with a sure arrival in a way I least expected it to happen. That’s what has happened when I’ve said, “I’m Going To Trust The Lord!” Amen

You Lord Are Worthy

S. O. A. P.

Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!

S-cripture:

Revelation 4:11 You are worthy, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for you created all things, and by your will they were created and have their being.

O-bservation:

While he was in "Vision Mode" on the Isle of Patmos, John saw and heard the 24 elders in heaven fall down before the Lord and say, "You, Lord, Are Worthy."

A-pplication:

Many theologians believe that the 24 elders in heaven represent the 12 heads of the tribes of Israel in the Old Testament and the 12 Apostles in the New Testament. Whoever they are, they have a high place in heaven’s economy. The idea is that all of God’s creation, both High and Low, will one day bow and confess that Jesus is Lord, as the Apostle Paul told us in Philippians 2:10-11. I know that is all futuristic, and I also know that we do not see this happening in the world as a whole today. Here's my point. Revival starts with me and then you. If I don't regularly stop each AM and say to my God, "You, Lord, Are Worthy," I cannot have a part in the worldwide revival that is prophesied. I hope you join me right now and say, "You, Lord, Are Worthy!"

P-rayer:

Dear Jesus, Before anything else this AM, let me say, "You, Lord, Are Worthy." Amen
