It’s Impossible to Please Everyone!

S. O. A. P. Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional! S-cripture: Matthew 11:18-19 For John came neither eating nor drinking, and they say, “He has a demon.” The Son of Man came eating and drinking, and they say, “Here is a glutton and a drunkard, a friend of tax collectors and sinners.” But wisdom is proved right by her deeds. O-bservation: Jesus was speaking to the crowd that gathered, and he talked to them about John the Baptist.

The ONE I Want To Please

S. O. A. P. Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional! S-cripture: John 5:30 By myself I can do nothing; I judge only as I hear, and my judgment is just, for I seek not to please myself but him who sent me. O-bservation: These are the words of Jesus.

Please, Jesus, Please

S. O. A. P. Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional! S-cripture: Psalm 4:6 Many, Lord, are asking, “Who will bring us prosperity?” Let the light of your face shine on us. O-bservation: This Psalm Of David was written with a complete reliance on the Lord. David was desperate as the royal leader of Israel for God’s intervention. In no way was he demanding of the Lord, but in an almost childlike way he says, “Many are asking where our prosperity will come from?” The best way I can relate to you what he was asking was simply, “Please, Jesus, Please.” A-pplication: Have you ever been so overwrought...
