Jesus Was The One That Was Crucified
“… who Himself bore our sins in His own body on the tree …” —1 Peter 2:24 April 6, 2012 God loves us so much that He redeemed us from our sins by sacrificing His Son Jesus (John 3:16). Because of this sacrifice, I can freely pray to God, anyone can. I can fellowship with God just like everyone else. The sad thing is people do not understand, they want to be spoon-fed,...
Customer: I drove 2 hours to get here and you tell me you're out of stock?!
Me: Sorry sir but yes, you could've called to make sure first.
Customer: Well I didn't have time! I want a refund!
Me: But sir you didn't even buy anything yet.
Customer: I don't care! I want to be compensated for my drive! At least pay me back the gas I used to drive here!
Break My Heart For What Breaks Yours
“Jesus came with them to a place called Gethsemane, and said to the disciples … . ’Stay here and watch with Me’” —Matthew 26:36, 38 April 5, 2012 Seeing things through God’s eyes… is what I got from this verse. Before I fully dedicated my life to God, I always relied on my own understanding and vision. It was always what I think is right, what I think should be but...
Customer: Hi, can I order a cheeseburger meal super-sized?
Me: Is there anything else?
Customer: My son wants curly fries, can I get those on the side?
Me: Sorry ma'am we don't have curly fries here in McDonald's.
Customer: Well can you curl them up or something? You have fries, just curl them up and fry them!
This Is Crazy!
“Indeed the hour is coming … that you will be scattered …” —John 16:32 April 4, 2012 I am at a loss for words right now so I may not say much for today’s devotion. I prayed to God before I opened utmost.org that He tell me what is happening with me, why my passion or faith is roller coasting itself right now and why am I such in awe at the moment is because this is...
Regrets and Reminisce
“If you had known … in this your day, the things that make for your peace! But now they are hidden from your eyes” —Luke 19:42 April 3, 2012 There are things in my life that was hard to let go. They took over my life and fulfilling them were my temporary peace. God on the other hand was trying to show me real peace at the time and because I ignored it, my actions and thoughts...
Look To You
“… the Lord Jesus … has sent me that you may receive your sight …” —Acts 9:17 April 2, 2012 I guess I was looking at things wrong. I have had a heavy heart for quite sometime now (my problems that I wrote on my previous devotions) and now I know why that is. I was more concerned looking into my problems how I felt that time is running out and not looked to...

“’Let us go to Judea again.’ The disciples said to Him, ’… are You going there again?’” —John 11:7-8 March 28, 2012 What does it truly mean to have complete faith in God? I learned from this verse that there maybe things that God will tell us to do and it might not make sense, or in our understanding might be wrong or have a better solution. That shouldn’t be the way we...
Way better than KONY 2012
Level Up On Understanding
“Come up here, and I will show you things which must take place …” —Revelation 4:1 March 27, 2012 What I learned from this is that the more I get closer to God, the clearer things are for me. Things about my life, about the thing happening around me, the stories in the bible and God as Himself as to why He is what He is is definitely much clearer. Just like the line of the...
“Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God” —Matthew 5:8 March 26, 2012 From my personal experience, being pure is very very crucial in terms of receiving God’s anointing, and feeling His presence. I have gone through a time where I was consistently doing something that is unpleasing to God and at the same time calling out to Him. I didn’t feel His presence...
I Might Be Wrong But It's Ok
“Where there are envy, strife, and divisions among you, are you not carnal … ?” —1 Corinthians 3:3 March 23, 2012 This devotion today, what I learned could not be explained any better than what it said on utmost.org: If the Spirit of God detects anything in you that is wrong, He doesn’t ask you to make it right; He only asks you to accept the light of truth, and then He...
Fire Burns Within
“Did not our heart burn within us … ?” —Luke 24:32 March 22, 2012 My devotion today will be short for the revelation I have is very straightforward: Does the fire in my heart really burn? Just like a real flame… my heart must be able to burn through anything if I maintain to feed the fire within my heart. Basing my life through emotion will definitely be based on...
No Best Of Both Worlds
“I have been crucified with Christ …” —Galatians 2:20 March 21, 2012 What I learned from today’s devotion is something I used to easily misinterpret or something that is hard to grasp. Being “crucified with Christ”, “it is no longer I who live but Christ within me.” As a devoted Christian, my life should clearly dictate this. Not the “I am...
“Shall I hide from Abraham what I am doing … ?” —Genesis 18:17 March 20, 2012 Reading utmost.org today gave me something new when it comes to being one with God. As a Christian that is hungry to be doing God’s will… I realize now that being one with God means I don’t have to ask for God’s plan to manifest or for His will to happen because I am bound...
Life of Uncertainty
“He went out, not knowing where he was going” —Hebrews 11:8 March 19, 2012 I learned in this verse that being led by God leaves a big deal of uncertainty because that is how my faith is going to be exercised. Right now I am going to be honest, the past weekend, I was hit with worry and stress. I got these plans that would be my source of income/being self-employed and this past...
Slavery, Bondage, Lust, Welcome To The Good Life?
“… you are that one’s slaves whom you obey …” —Romans 6:16 March 14, 2012 What I learned from this verse is simple really… whatever I give into, it will take over me like a bondage. If I yield to lust even for just a second, it quickly plagues my mind like a disease as it tries to tempt me to attain what I was lusting for (whether it is lusting for flesh or mind)....
