Daily Devotional - April 22, 2021
💚 Worship: If you'd like to play a song before you begin or while you read, may we recommend "Alpha & Omega" by Israel Houghton (ho-ton). Why not try asking alexa, siri, or google to play it for you?!
💙 Daily Verse: God saved you by his grace when you believed. And you can’t take credit for this; it is a gift from God.
☆ Ephesians 2:8 NLT
💜 Let's Talk About It: Our salvation isn't ours, not in a sense that we would even be able to make a claim to it on our own. The truth is, as Paul suggests, it is a gift.
Faith is the second effect of the Holy Spirit's regenerating activity and calling. It is by faith that we are saved, therefore, it is absolutely instrumental to salvation.
Some people believe faith is the cause of regeneration, but this is not actually the case. In truth, faith is the effect of regeneration.
When is the last time that you thanked God for your faith? How about prayed for faith?
I don't know about you, but I am praying for more faith to believe for miracles and see God bring revival to His church and people.
❤ Prayer: Jesus, thank You for Your sacrifice and for being the arbitrator of my faith. I am thankful for the faith You've given me and for giving me the gift of salvation. Lord, there are none like You. I am amazed by Your goodness and give You all the praise. Thank You, Father, for always taking care of me. You are an amazing provider and have always come through in my time of need. My God, if it be Your will, I pray for more faith. Lord I want to see people healed by my shadow. I want to see the prisoner set free. I want to be Your hands and feet, Jesus, so I pray You would increase my faith so that I may bring You glory, God. Lord, I pray that You would bring revival, and Father, I thank You for allowing it to start with me. I love You Jesus and in Your mighty name I pray, amen.
