Daily Devotionals - November 2019
11 Nov.

“Now hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us” (Romans 5:5, NKJV).

We can’t possibly love others the way God’s royal law of love tells us to without the Holy Spirit’s help. He reminds us of God’s love for us, and enables us to share it with others.

10 Nov.

“But now hath he obtained a more excellent ministry, by how much also he is the mediator of a better covenant, which was established upon better promises” (Hebrews 8:6).

The “better covenant” Paul mentions is the new covenant of grace, which operates by faith. This new covenant is based on our belief in what Jesus did for us, not on our belief in what we can do for ourselves.

9 Nov.

“For what saith the scripture? Abraham believed God, and it was counted unto him for righteousness” (Romans 4:3).

We’re not made righteous in God’s eyes by what we do, but by what we believe. When we have faith in the finished works of Jesus, we can rest from endlessly trying to please God; He’s already pleased with us.

7 Nov.

“When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all truth. He will not speak on his own but will tell you what he has heard. He will tell you about the future” (John 16:13, NLT).

Born-again Christians never have to rely on their own resources or intellect to make the right decisions in life. The Holy Spirit, who speaks to us what He hears directly from the Father, is always by our side.

6 Nov.

“I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou shalt go: I will guide thee with mine eye” (Psalm 32:8).

There will always be times when we don’t know where to turn or who to go to for direction and guidance. God is always waiting to show us the way.

5 Nov.

“And thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, This is the way, walk ye in it, when ye turn to the right hand, and when ye turn to the left” (Isaiah 30:21).

God will never leave us guessing as to His will for us. When we develop a relationship with Him and get to know Him through His Word, we can walk confidently through life.

4 Nov.

“Thus saith the LORD, thy Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel; I am the LORD thy God which teacheth thee to profit, which leadeth thee by the way that thou shouldest go” (Isaiah 48:17).

By His Spirit, God wants to lead us through life and reveal the right path to take. When we’re confused and unsure of what to do, we can always trust Him to give us the direction we need.

3 Nov.

“If you need wisdom, ask our generous God, and he will give it to you. He will not rebuke you for asking” (James 1:5, NLT).

God will never refuse us when we ask for wisdom to handle a tough situation. He doesn’t blame us for asking; He just helps us.

2 Nov.

“And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful” (Colossians 3:15).

Letting God’s Word sink deep into our hearts calms and quiets us. We have access to this type of peace only through Him; we can be thankful it’s available any time we need it.

1 Nov.

“Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid” (John 14:27).

The world will give us a false sense of security; true peace only comes from Jesus. When we trust Him in every situation, we’ll never be moved.
