Daily Devotional - April 5, 2021
💛 Worship: If you'd like to play a song before you begin or while you read, may we recommend "How Great Thou Art" by Carrie Underwood. Why not try asking alexa, siri, or google to play it for you?!
💚 Daily Verse: All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right.
☆ 2 Timothy 3:16 NLT
💙 Let's Talk About It: I just love this verse because, to me, it highlights the amazing work of the Holy Spirit.
He has had His skin in this game since the beginning. As this verse states, it is the Holy Spirit that inspired the Word of God. Peter expounds upon this in 2 Peter 1:21 stating that even the prophets only said what the Spirit of God told them to say (paraphrased).
It is clear then, that the Holy Spirit's work began long before the New Covenant.
He also had a hand in Creation (as we see in verses Gen 1:2 & Psalm 104:30). All three parts of the Godhead were there from the beginning, separating the firmament, creating all the fish of the sea and birds of the air. God consists of 3 parts (Trinity) and they are not separate in a sense of their deity or strength, but they do all have their special roles.
Have you ever thought about what hand the Holy Spirit had in the Old Testament? What's one new thing you've learned about the Holy Spirit since this month's devo began?
❤ Prayer: Dear God, thank You for another day and another opportunity to worship You. You are a good God and I am grateful that You guide me in ALL aspects of my life. Thank You for bringing healing to my family and I. Thank You for blessing me with more than I could imagine. I love You Lord and I want to bring You glory in my life. Help me to be Your hands and feet, Jesus. May Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Lord, You know the needs of Your people and I pray You would meet every need today in Jesus name. I love You Jesus and in your mighty name I pray, amen.
