Read Your Bible, Pray Everyday
“If anyone wills to do His will, he shall know concerning the doctrine …” —John 7:17 July 27, 2012 What I learned from today’s devotion is that as a Christian, if I do want to seek Jesus and do what He wants me to do then I have to make the effort to communicate with Him and learn more about Him. Read the bible and pray - those things are the foundation of my faith and...
“Those things which proceed out of the mouth come from the heart … . For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies. These are the things which defile a man …” —Matthew 15:18-20 July 26, 2012 The verse today is very very straightforward. It is a constant struggle to remain pure and sometimes we are not...
Right Doing < Right Being
“… unless your righteousness exceeds the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, you will by no means enter the kingdom of heaven” —Matthew 5:20 July 24, 2012 It is true that actions speak louder than words but hour about our thoughts? aspirations? motives? Are they as pure as our actions? That is what I learned today. As Christians, it is not enough that we do good works...
You See My Obey Hat?!
“You call Me Teacher and Lord, and you say well, for so I am” —John 13:13 July 19, 2012 What I learned today was so straightforward that this might be a short one. The last line on utmost.org said the following: The Son was obedient as our Redeemer, because He was the Son, not in order to become God’s son. Why do we obey Christ? Do we obey because we want to be...
The Price Has Got To Be Right
“In the year that King Uzziah died, I saw the Lord …” —Isaiah 6:1 July 13, 2012 What I learned from this devotion is that following God’s plans in our lives always and always have a sacrifice. It doesn’t literally mean that someone has to die but there will be people we will have to let go so God can take their place. Any relationship that we prioritize over God...
Seek Jesus Not Blessings
“… till we all come … to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ …” —Ephesians 4:13 July 12, 2012 I learned from this devotion that I should grow out of the thought of seeking God for blessings, joy, peace, etc. and that I should seek Him realize who He is and not what He has done for me. When we want to get to know a person, we want to get to know...
Self-Realization VS Christ-Realization
“… that I may know Him …” —Philippians 3:10 July 11, 2012 What I learned on this devotion is that on the things we do and the lessons we learn and circumstances we overcome, where is our focus? Is it focused on realizing ourselves and what we’re capable of or realizing Jesus and His awesome power? Sometimes I do mistake some events in my life to be focused on...
To Be Stirred Up - No Lazy
“Let us consider one another in order to stir up love and good works, not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together …” —Hebrews 10:24-25 July 10, 2012 Being a Christian is more than just the works, the Sunday services, etc. Part of being a Christian is to be constantly stirred up by God. The continual evolution of our characteristics and spiritual standing. Being a...
I Am Not Ready To Serve
“Joshua said to the people, ’You cannot serve the Lord …’” —Joshua 24:19 July 9, 2012 I used to think that I have to meet a certain criteria to be able to serve the Lord, to be “up there”. I used to think that I need to build myself up first before I could worship Him again but I realized now that all it does is waste time. “Come as you are”… God...
Once Upon A Time - A Love Story
“… choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve …” —Joshua 24:15 July 8, 2012 The Lord has been placing in front of each of us some big proposals and plans. The best thing to do is to remember what you did before when you were touched by God. Recall the moment when you were saved, or first recognized Jesus, or realized some truth. It was easy then to yield your...
Keep On The Hustle
“The parched ground shall become a pool …” —Isaiah 35:7 July 6, 2012 What I learned from utmost.org today is that when God gives us vision or goals on where He would want to take us, the process is not instant. When the vision is revealed, the process of evolution will then commence. God will put you through things that will shape you to be ready for that vision and until then,...

Beyond God's Will - Plan With Him
“Commit your way to the Lord, trust also in Him, and He shall bring it to pass” —Psalm 37:5 July 5, 2012 I learned from this devotion that to go beyond asking God for “His will to be done” is to plan thing with Him. Planning things with God is a much more different experience. Planning with God has to be focused on God to the point that worries and failures are not even...
