Philippians 4:11-13 – Keep Calm And Carry On

Daily Devotional Bible Verse

Not that I am speaking of being in need, for I have learned in whatever situation I am to be content. I know how to be brought low, and I know how to abound. In any and every circumstance, I have learned the secret of facing plenty and hunger, abundance and need. I can do all things through him who strengthens me. (Philippians 4:11-13, ESV)

You know what’s great about being a Christian? Life comes with a survival kit. In all the twists and turns and hiccups of life, we have a trusty and handy source that can get you through it all. Of course I’m referring to the strength we find in Jesus. The Apostle Paul serves as an excellent example of surviving everything life throws his way. He wrote today’s devotional Bible verse. Verse 13 is often used more on a regular basis by than the previous two verses: I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. ( Philippians 4:13). I like the fact that this verse is written in direct support of “I can be content in any situation.” So often we isolate this verse and we apply it to only encourage us to do the impossible, which I am all for. However, sometimes we need to remember that Christ is also here to help in our day to day.

Genesis 15:1 – The Great Reward

Daily Devotional Bible Verse

“And these things the word of the LORD came unto Abram in a vision, saying, Fear not, Abram: I am thy shield, and thy exceeding great reward.” (Genesis 15:1 KJV)

Here in Genesis 15:1, the Lord is clearly telling Abram not to fear. This command can also be seen all throughout the Bible. And this is the same command that Jesus wants us to know. 2 Timothy 1:7 says that God has not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. We are to fear nothing in this world because we have a great God. We have a powerful God that is greater than any circumstance that we could ever face. He is greater than any problem, trial, temptation, need, sickness and even death. So the moment that we are feeling scared, pause for a moment and call on Jesus. You will be

Deuteronomy 8:2 – Don't Forget Your Wilderness

Daily Devotional Bible Verse

And you shall remember the whole way that the Lord your God has led you these forty years in the wilderness, that he might humble you, testing you to know what was in your heart, whether you would keep his commandments or not. (Deuteronomy 8:2 ESV)

And you shall call to mind and never forget to speak of the roads of tests and paths of afflictions the Lord Thy God navigated you down these 40 years in an strange unhabituated land. With no natural maps or compasses for the purpose of manifesting what was in your heart through calculated trials of experience to see if your obedience to His commandments would take precedence over your flesh which is your own way of thinking, feeling, doing and not His (my very own).

We will all have a wilderness experience which is an experience of attacks, oppression, rejection, grief and so forth. Some of these experiences may be shocking, embarrassing, sudden and self-afflicting. Yet and still
