Oh Lord, I pray for people who are on earth now and will be when You return Jesus. If people have not repented on that day, then they will get what they rightly deserve. Justice has to be served, for You are our King and Lord of Lords. I worship You, God. It is hard to believe that people will continue to resist You, even until the end of their lives. I often have to wonder why people would choose to live a life without You, God, when they could be saved from the wrath to come. It doesn’t have to be difficult to be saved, but many people make it seem this way. They add extra rules to their religion thinking it will better help them, but in reality, it is only keeping them from doing Your will. Surely, the gospel message is simple, but people like to complicate it. If people could just know the will for themselves, they would stop trying to work their way to heaven but live to do Your will instead. It is sure nice to know that You are speaking to us and also leading us by the hand. I love the feeling of being led by You. Truly, I am not the only one blessed when this happens, but others around me also. One thing You have taught me, God, is that there will be persecution, although we are made strong with You leading us. Things will only get worse as time goes by, but I know that You will one day come for Your church. Then, will we be raptured up to be with You. Not to endure any more lives trials, but be forever blessed. I love You, God. You are my King and I worship You. Amen.
Revelation 19:15,16 (KJV)
15 And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.
16 And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, King Of Kings, And Lord Of Lords.
When Jesus returns, His wrath will be poured out upon the wicked. The saints will be fighting along with Him in white robes.
Oh Lord, I pray that You will make a spot for me during the marriage ceremony of the Lamb. I have lived this life for You, and pray that I will be there among all the other saints of God. You know that I have had my share of mistakes on this earth. I have done things I wish I hadn’t, and only You could settle the debt. I was lost in my sins and transgressions against You, but because You died for me, I have been made clean. Lord, I know that You have died to pay the price for all our sins, no matter how heavy they are now. Thank You, God, for Your forgiveness and mercy. It is my prayer that You will keep me from harms way. Lead me from temptation. Help me to live a life that is worthy of my calling. Whatever You would do in my life, I know I cannot accomplish it if I am living in willful sin. This is only quenching the Holy Spirit, which I pray I will never do again purposely. Therefore, look at my heart, even now, and rip out of my soul anything that is contrary to Your will. I am speaking of any false beliefs that are still there, along with any sinful actions. Cleanse me and move within my life. Lead me to Your truth. I love You, God. You deserve all the praise and glory. I sing to You, my King and my God. Amen.
Revelation 19:4-6 (KJV)
4 And the four and twenty elders and the four beasts fell down and worshipped God that sat on the throne, saying, Amen; Alleluia.
5 And a voice came out of the throne, saying, Praise our God, all ye his servants, and ye that fear him, both small and great.
6 And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude, and as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of mighty thunderings, saying, Alleluia: for the Lord God omnipotent reigneth.
One day, there will be a marriage ceremony with Jesus. We will be there, who are His saints. Be ready for that day.
Oh Lord, You are so good to us. Though we don’t always deserve Your mercy, You extend it just the same. Those who love and follow Your commands are those who have experienced Your abundant grace and perfect love. I just wish that people who are currently against You and Your followers on earth would wake up to their sins. Then would they know that You are so just in Your punishments, but also so forgiving. We are all like the prodigal son when we live a life apart from You, Lord. For we have all gone astray during different parts of our lives and done things we wish we hadn’t. However, the day we return to You, all our debts are settles. I know that my sins have been very heavy, where receiving Your forgiveness would have sounded like a fairy tale in times past. You know how wretched and wicked I once was. I was so far from You in my lust and sexual sins. My beliefs were also of men, but all this has changed. You have come into my life and done a work like never before. All the lust is scattered to the wayside. Every false belief has been squashed, and now I only wish to be led by You, God. Lord, Lead me into the harvest where the very elect will be called out of the darkness and into Your glorious light. I trust in You. I believe in You. All the glory to God in the highest. I worship You, my King. Come and lead me to greener pastures. I love You, Jesus. Amen.
Revelation 18:18-20 (KJV)
18 And cried when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, What city is like unto this great city!
19 And they cast dust on their heads, and cried, weeping and wailing, saying, Alas, alas that great city, wherein were made rich all that had ships in the sea by reason of her costliness! for in one hour is she made desolate.
20 Rejoice over her, thou heaven, and ye holy apostles and prophets; for God hath avenged you on her.
If anybody fights against God and His people, they will have their due punishment, lest they confess their sins and repent.
Oh Lord, You are so good to me. What have I done to merit Your favor in my life? Nothing. But still, You have seen something in me that myself and others could never see. I am speaking of potential, which I am so grateful for Your patience. You could never think this way of me unless You knew that something greater was coming in the future. And now that I have put my trust in You, I have seen so many good things take place in my life that I have never seen or experienced before. Why do You work through me? I will never understand. But what I do know is that I am so grateful. I would like to think that I would be Your disciples while You were on earth, Jesus, but only You know if that would be true or not. What I know now is that You are the greatest thing to ever happen to me. I love to witness Your truths to anybody possible. It is true that I feel an urgency to reach certain people while I have time. If it is my life or other people’s lives that are soon to end, I will never know. Only You know this, God. If me reaching certain people at certain times in the day is what is important to their salvation, I also do not know. What I do know, Lord, is that I am like a farmer. You have given me seeds on earth, and I am here planting those seeds in people’s hearts. Will they all germinate and be saved? I know this is not possible. What I do hope for, Lord, is that out of the thousands of people I have reached for Your cause, I pray that a hundred will come off of the path of destruction and be saved. I live for You. I love You. Amen.
Psalm 27:14 (KJV)
14 Wait on the Lord: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the Lord.
My life may be on the brink of death because of persecution, but I will never deny my one true love, who is Jesus.
Oh Lord, it is so good to have You in my life. I know how it once was when I put all my trust in people who only failed me. I was so lost and doubts continually swirled in my mind. But now that I have You with me, my life is founded on a rock that is unmovable. Thank You for taking me out of the Mormon Church, which is false, and leading me to know You personally. I would have never made that leap of faith to know You like I do today if I took the easy way out. What would have been very easy was to simply stay in the religion I grew up in. I would have never lost friends or relationships with family if I had done this. But it was worth it. No matter if I hardly ever see certain people I grew up with anymore, I know that You have placed new people in my life that are only helping me in the faith. Nothing in this world is more valuable than that what You can do for my life. I have searched for truth throughout my life but never felt what I had was complete. It was until I found You, Jesus, that I thought I would be lost forever. Oh, how wrong I was. You took a person who was discouraged, not knowing where or what to do next in life, while leading me to write daily devotionals for my ministry. And not only this, You have given me web developer skills in order to create the site I have today. Yes, God, I give You glory for everything that I have been able to accomplish on “Daily Christian Devotionals“. It is a work of art, but only because You have done it all through me. I give You glory and praise. I surely am unashamed to tell people about You now. I love You. Amen.
Revelation 18:4,5 (KJV)
4 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.
5 For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities.
If you, knowingly are a part of a false religion, then l I ask, and God asks also, for You to come out of it for Christ’s sake.
Oh Lord, I lift my hands up to praise You. I don’t deserve the life I have now. You could have taken it away a long time ago. You know how deep I was into sexual sin that it almost ruined me and my marriage. In this time, I had run to things that only led to temporary happiness. I was never fulfilled. Each time I needed a bigger high than the previous times. You probably saw all this and were so sickened by what I was doing. I am sure that You thought about giving up on me then, but You didn’t. For this reason, I have to ask why? Was it because You knew I would overcome the enemy and find victory with You? I believe this to be true. You do know everything, and although I was causing grief in my family’s lives and especially Yours, Your patience for me endured. And so I remember the day that I found You. It was at the time that I was desperate for help, and especially for a Savior. Then, You came Jesus. You heard my cries and I was no longer alone. I didn’t need the things I was seeking after any longer for You became all I need. Forgiveness and mercy are all I wanted. I wanted a clean slate and You gave it to me. Thank You for calling me out of the darkness and into Your light You covered me by Your blood and I am made clean. Therefore, I need more of Your presence in my life and less of me. I am desperate to know You more and to do Your will above all else. I worship You, Jesus. I love You. Amen.
Ephesians 2:10 (KJV)
10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.
The fruits of our faith are good works. Not the kind of good works that many people do in their lives, but things for God.
Oh Lord, I worship You, my King and my God. Only through You am I any different than before. If there has been a change from within that people have noticed, You have done it all. One thing I am amazed about, even now, is how You have been able to tame the lusts in my heart towards women. You know how I once was, but now even pornography is vial in my mind. I truly want nothing to do with things that will turn my heart from You. You are my everything and I pray that You can see in my heart how this is true. I am sorry for the past and what I have done in transgressing against You and Your holy commandments. Therefore, I truly hope that You have heard my cries and forgiven me as a sinner. Lord, I love it when You said You came for those who are sick and need a physician, for that was me the whole time. I didn’t realize it until what You did for me on the cross sunk in. Deep down in my soul, I am now so grateful for what You did for me, Jesus. You have come down from heaven to save a wretch like me, and many others in the dark world we live in. I love You. I give You honor and praise. Amen.
Ephesians 2:1-3 (KJV)
1 And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins;
2 Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:
3 Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others.
The moment you put your trust in Jesus, a life change begins. You are not only saved but are now made different from within.
Oh Lord, I pray for every person throughout the world who is part of the Catholic church. Wake them up to the idolatry they are under when it comes to praying to Mary, the saints, and angels. These images of stone, wood, and clay are doing nothing good for the welfare of their souls, but bringing them further and further from You, God. So I pray that Catholics will begin to read the Bible and pray to You for themselves. Then, will they know that no idolator will ever have entrance into Your kingdom. Surely, if idolators are not going to heaven, then only hell is at the door. I am afraid too many people have already died in these false beliefs and are there now. But one thing I do know still is that there are good people in the Catholic church who are not idolators but eagerly awaiting to hear the truth. These types of people, You have led to me as I have gone out in the harvest to witness Your truths. This is so amazing to hear them pray and confess their sins before You, God. I have seen many people who are Catholic give up their worship to anything but You. It is the love they have in their hearts for You that leads them to repent and leave what is false behind. I have seen this from many people in other false religions also and it is truly remarkable. Even my faith is strengthened when I hear another person pray with me for salvation. Last weekend, I heard this from my Mormon nephews and that was amazing as well. Thank You for these encounters. I love You, Lord. Amen.
Revelation 17:12-15 (KJV)
12 And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast.
13 These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast.
14 These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful.
15 And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues.
Be watchful and know the Lord, that You don’t side with a person over Him and His power. This causes the wicked to be destroyed.
