Daily Devotionals - December 2019

15Dec

December 15

“As soon as Jesus heard the word that was spoken, he saith unto the ruler of the synagogue, Be not afraid, only believe” (Mark 5:36).

Fear and doubt are closely linked. If we wholeheartedly believe God’s Word, there will be no room for fear.
14Dec

December 14

“And when he had called unto him his twelve disciples, he gave them power against unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all manner of sickness and all manner of disease” (Matthew 10:1).

When we wholeheartedly believe that Jesus gave us the same authority and power that He and His disciples had, nothing can stop us from fulfilling His will for us. The enemy knows this; therefore, we must not let unbelief creep in when we consider God’s promises.
13Dec

December 13

“Owe no man any thing, but to love one another: for he that loveth another hath fulfilled the law” (Romans 13:8).

The Law of Moses consisted of the Ten Commandments plus more than six hundred additional laws, and was impossible for anyone but Jesus to keep. However, Jesus replaced all those laws with just one—the law of love.
12Dec

December 12

“Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us” (Romans 8:37, NKJV).

Life has a way of throwing unpleasant surprises at us when we least expect it. Christ’s love will never let us down or abandon us when trouble hits; we win over adversity when we’re in Him.
11Dec

December 11

“I shall not die, but live, and declare the works of the LORD” (Psalm 118:17).

God wants us to live joyful, victorious lives according to the plans He has made for us. When we feel tempted to doubt the His promises, we fight back against unbelief by speaking His Word out loud.
10Dec

December 10

“Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me” (John 14:6).

We can’t get into heaven without Jesus Christ. After getting born again and making Him our Lord and Savior, we need to continue seeking His presence through prayer, studying His Word, and fellowship with other believers.
09Dec

December 9

“There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death” (Proverbs 14:12).

There’s no way we can succeed without the guidance of the Holy Spirit to tell us which path in life to take. He can see when trouble is brewing ahead of us, and steer us away from it.
08Dec

December 8

“Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore” (Psalm 16:11).

The peace and joy we all seek isn’t found in the world, but only through a relationship with Christ. We find success when we let Him guide us through life.
07Dec

December 7

“For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their iniquities will I remember no more” (Hebrews 8:12).

Religion still teaches the law, which says to fear God’s punishment if we fall short or miss the mark. However, under grace, He chooses to show us mercy, compassion, and forgiveness.
06Dec

December 6

“Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution” (2 Timothy 3:12).

The world doesn’t know Christ; therefore, we can expect to encounter persecution for living godly lives. When we verbally declare God’s Word, we may receive the same treatment that Jesus received during His earthly ministry.
05Dec

December 5

“For this is as the waters of Noah unto me: for as I have sworn that the waters of Noah should no more go over the earth; so have I sworn that I would not be wroth with thee, nor rebuke thee” (Isaiah 54:9).

God promised to never destroy the earth by flood again. This was a demonstration of His love and a foreshadowing of the new covenant that He would establish with His people—a covenant of grace.
04Dec

December 4

“Forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so also do ye” (Colossians 3:13).

Under the law, man had to forgive others, first, before God could forgive him. Under grace, we’ve already been forgiven; this enables us to forgive others.
03Dec

December 3

“Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree” (Galatians 3:13).

Under the law, God blessed the people if they kept every part of it; otherwise, they would be punished. Now that we’re redeemed from the curses the law brought, we can benefit from all the blessings that remain.
02Dec

December 2

“For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ” (John 1:17).

The covenant of the law was true and applicable for the time it was intended to be in force, but when Jesus came He replaced the law with grace. To experience God’s best in our lives we must live under the correct covenant.
01Dec

December 1

“Moreover the law entered, that the offence might abound. But where sin abounded, grace did much more abound” (Romans 5:20).

Trying to do the right thing under the Law of Moses only causes us to struggle more. By comparison, grace does perfectly what the law could never do: it makes us righteous in God’s eyes.
