Daily Devotionals - February 2020
25 Feb.

“Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God” (1 John 3:9).

When we become born-again, we’re able to partake of everything that He possesses.

24 Feb.

“But he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit” (1 Corinthians 6:17).

When we become born again, our spirits become one with God. This is an eternal union.

23 Feb.

“Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world” (1 John 4:17).

We can have confidence in our right-standing with God when we accept Jesus into our hearts. We are just as He is because our spiritual nature has been recreated.

22 Feb.

“And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness” (Ephesians 4:24).

Our spirits were recreated in holiness. They are perfect, complete, and exactly like Jesus.

21 Feb.

“In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise” (Ephesians 1:13).

When we became born again, our spirits were sealed with the Holy Spirit, which means nothing can contaminate our inner man. Our minds must then be renewed to align with our recreated spirits.

19 Feb.

“And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us” (Romans 5:5).

Since the love of God has been deposited in our hearts by way of the Holy Spirit, we have the ability to love others just like Jesus does.

18 Feb.

“That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man” (Ephesians 3:16).

God has empowered us with might, which strengthens our spirit man, no matter what the circumstance or situation. We can release our faith in the grace of God that is available to us.

17 Feb.

“What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?” (Romans 8:31)

God loves us; there is nothing that can separate us from that love. When we know God loves us, we have confidence that we win in life.

16 Feb.

“For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing: for to will is present with me; but how to perform that which is good I find not. For the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do” (Romans 7:18, 19).

The battle all Christians deal with is between their old way of thinking, which is a by-product of the sin nature (the flesh), and the desires of their recreated spirits. We can overcome this battle by keeping our eyes on Jesus and reminding ourselves that we are no longer obligated to sin.

15 Feb.

“Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith” (Galatians 3:24).

The purpose of the law was to show man his need for a Savior. It acted as a schoolmaster that pointed the way to Christ.

14 Feb.

“For I was alive without the law once: but when the commandment came, sin revived, and I died” (Romans 7:9).

The law gives life to the sin nature. Grace releases us from the bondage of sin.

13 Feb.

“The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law” (1 Corinthians 15:56).

The law was given to show people their need for a Savior by actually arousing the sin nature. However, Jesus has abolished the law and, in doing so, taken care of the sin problem that plagued mankind.

12 Feb.

“For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace” (Romans 6:14).

There is good news for those who are in Christ Jesus! We’re no longer under the influence of sin because we possess a new nature that is governed by grace and not the Law of Moses.

11 Feb.

“This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh” (Galatians 5:16).

To walk in the Spirit is to walk according to the Word of God. When we walk in the Spirit, we won’t satisfy the desires of our old sin nature.

10 Feb.

“By the which will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all” (Hebrews 10:10).

Jesus paid the price for us to be made holy. His redemptive work is eternally complete.

9 Feb.

“Unto the church of God which is at Corinth, to them that are sanctified in Christ Jesus, called to be saints, with all that in every place call upon the name of Jesus Christ our Lord, both their’s and our’s” (1 Corinthians 1:2).

When we’re in Christ, we are sanctified. This means that we’ve been called out of the world and into the marvelous light of Jesus Christ.

8 Feb.

“And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also might be sanctified through the truth” (John 17:19).

The truth of God’s Word, when internalized, will set us apart from the world’s ways of thinking.

7 Feb.

“For where a testament is, there must also of necessity be the death of the testator” (Hebrews 9:16).

The new “testament” is the will and testament of Jesus Christ for us. He had to die in order for us to be able to benefit from it.

6 Feb.

“Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth” (2 Timothy 2:15).

Understanding the Word of God comes through diligent study and application. In doing so, we are able to properly discern the context of what is being said and how it relates to us.

5 Feb.

“Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you. Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you” (John 15:14, 15).

Friendship is a covenant word. When we obey God, we demonstrate the friendship, or covenant relationship, we have with Jesus.

4 Feb.

“The secret of the LORD is with them that fear him; and he will shew them his covenant” (Psalm 25:14).

When we walk in the fear of the Lord, God will reveal His secrets to us.

3 Feb.

“The fear of the LORD is clean, enduring for ever: the judgments of the LORD are true and righteous altogether” (Psalm 19:9).

To “fear” God is to reverence, respect, and honor Him and His Word. It has a cleansing effect on our hearts.

2 Feb.

“Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore God, even thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows” (Hebrews 1:9).

Loving righteousness and hating sin will cause the anointing of God to be released on our lives in a greater capacity.

1 Feb.

“Then this Daniel was preferred above the presidents and princes, because an excellent spirit was in him; and the king thought to set him over the whole realm” (Daniel 6:3).

When we possess the wisdom of God, we’ll be favored above other people. God’s wisdom will exalt us.
