Join Legacy Church as we blog through the year using Darlene Zschech’s Jesus Revealed Devotional!
Weeks 11-12 (March 12-25, 2017) themes:
*Throughout the Psalms, David models God’s desire for us to come to Him “just as I am.” He doesn’t want us to pretend to be feeling one emotion when we are clearly feeling another. He doesn’t want our performance; he wants us in truth.
*The only way a lamb can be left to attack by a lion is when there is no shepherd close-by to protect and rescue. And the marvelous news for David— and for us— is that our heavenly Father is not silent when His child is in danger.
*None of us are perfect. This is why we are all in need of God’s great grace. We walk in this grace, and we are to offer this grace to others as they journey as well.
*He understood that grace is not just a word from the Father to us, but is to be extended to each other.
*Father God, I bring to you the challenges of my life, both big and small, knowing you will sustain me.
*A good word to remember is that in the face of trials, when the enemy drives God’s servant to prayer, the enemy has encouraged the spiritual renewal he sought to destroy.
*No matter what you are going through, only two parties ultimately matter in your spiritual life: God and you.
*The Lord has promised good to me. His word my hope secures. He will my shield and portion be, As long as life endures.
*My dear friends, one of the clear evidences that God loves us deeply is that He always seeks to talk to us.
*For those who carry a pain or sorrow today, I affirm that God is keeping a careful and loving watch over you right now.
*We have the full riches of Jesus today in the here and now. Total salvation is ours because Jesus is the Victor over sin and death.
*Through His glory— the resurrection and ascension— He gave us a brand-new life, left us with the person of the Holy Spirit, and continues to intercede on our behalf before the Father.
*The Christian life is to be enjoyed, but I want us to take it seriously; to be alert, attentive, awake, ready to say yes to all that He asks.
*He would do for us what we could not do ourselves, both in salvation and in godly living.
“So roll up your sleeves, put your mind in gear, be totally ready to receive the gift that’s coming when Jesus arrives. Don’t lazily slip back into those old grooves of evil, doing just what you feel like doing. You didn’t know any better then; you do now.” 1 Peter 1:13-14 MSG
