Monday, November 30 Forty Days of Proclamation: Sober-Minded LeAnn Vance “Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.” 1 Peter 5:8 NIV “Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.” I Peter 5:8 ESV When 2020 began, I prayed for God to send me a word for 2020. In years past I had picked a word but half way through the year it would be lo
Friday' November 27 Forty Days of Proclamation Abundance Amanda Thompson Some years, God delivers my word in quiet prayer and other years, he delivers everywhere and in everything I see, hear, and do. For me, my 2020 word was the latter, roaring in loudly and clear. ABUNDANCE. Like the majority of the words that God has given me, ABUNDANCE felt like a bit of an odd choice. It felt odd to me because in general, I tend to see ABUNDANCE in all areas of my life. Contrary to the w
Wednesday, November 25 Forty Days of Proclamation Intentional Angie Blackman Landers He must become greater; I must become less. John 3:30 I have a quote on my desk, I’m not sure who penned it , but it says. “The value of consistent and persistent prayer is not that He will hear us - but that we finally hear Him” Last year when I chose my Word of the year I decided on Intentional because more than anything I wanted to hear the the voice of God, I wanted to truly feel as thoug
Forty Days of Proclamation: Wisdom Hester Jane Burnside “Happy is the man who finds wisdom and the man who gains understanding” – Proverbs 3:13 Have you ever said this about a particular : They are wise beyond their years,” “They are as wise an an owl,” or perhaps, “With age comes wisdom.” Growing up I always looked up to people older than me because I knew they were wise. I often sought their support and guidance. My parents raised me while instilling knowledge and wisdom in
The Word of the Lord to me for the past several years has been “Behold the Lamb.” To be honest, I have felt a little intimidated as I have tried to condense what could be a book into a short devotional. As I prayed asking what the Lord would have me say, he reminded me of a vision I had 35 years ago. It is just as fresh today as it was then and encapsulates what Behold the Lamb means to me.
The scene opens and I am standing in a bank of fog on a what appeared to be a stage.
November 20, 2020 Forty Days of Proclamation: RESTORE Hope Beach Psalm 51:12 Restore to me the joy of Your salvation and grant me a willing spirit to sustain me. When I chose my word for this year, I spent a lot of time, last year, wondering what God had planned for me. I was excited that I had several jobs and they were all going so well and I was actually having extra money set aside for paying down debt and paying my taxes quarterly. (Who does that??!!) I foolishly thought
40 Days of Proclamation – Trust Thursday, November 19th, 2020 Kristen Kaplan “The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in him, and he helps me. My heart leaps for joy, and with my song I praise him.” Psalm 28:7 When asked about writing a post for this series, I was at first going to say no. I am not an eloquent writer like some others on here. I still struggle with my walk with the Lord. How was I going to write about my word? But as the word I chose this year,
Wednesday, November 18, 2020 Forty Days of Proclamation Eunice Glick Faithfulness “But my God will supply all your needs according to his riches in Christ Jesus. Philippines 4:19 The conversation that began was nothing new. My husband was concerned about our finances. We had house taxes due and they had increased from last year. Then I remembered a story that my mother told me before she died. In 1921 my mother, uncle, grandfather, grandmother, and aunt arrived in Ellis Islan
Tuesday, November 17, 2020 Forty Days of Proclamation: Joy Sharon Suiter Reyes “Those who sow in tears shall reap with shouts of joy!” Psalm 126:5 “I shall look at the world through tears. Perhaps I shall see things that dry-eyed I could not see.” – Nicolas Wolterstorff Does it seem strange to start a devotional on joy with a Bible verse and quote about weeping? This is the very tool God has used over the past two years to produce unmistakable joy in my life. And we all know
Monday, November 16, 2020 40 Days of Proclamation – Acceptance & Surrender Laurie Bubela Waligura “There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love.” – 1 John 4:18 NIV “Fear not, For I am with you; Be not dismayed, for I am your God, I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. - Isaiah 41:10 NKJ As the new year began, I knew I neede
