Daily Devotional – Breathe God Is In Control

By on September 19, 2022
Daily Devotional

Our scripture for the Daily Devotional today is taken from Deuteronomy 31:5-8. All of our personal efforts and ambitions will not amount to anything. We need to live consuming the word of God as sustenance and as our provision to life.

“The Lord will deliver them to you, and you must do to them all that I have commanded you. Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.”

Then Moses summoned Joshua and said to him in the presence of all Israel, “Be strong and courageous, for you must go with this people into the land that the Lord swore to their ancestors to give them, and you must divide it among them as their inheritance. The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.”

I am completely lost without God’s guidance

I have come to know that a weekly fix from a Sunday service will never provide me with all that I need to live life. Living on a rationed amount of God and the His word will leave my soul malnourished and void of all that I was created for.

Like my lungs need air and my heart needs blood, I need the word and presence of God daily. As hunger pains set in, I am reminded that I live not by bread alone, but by every word spoken by my God. While I may think that I am not very desperate for God’s intervention, this is a sign of how lost I am.

Let us arrange our priorities today. Without the connection and leadership of our Father, all our efforts and attempts will be done in our own strength and amount to dust!

Let’s Pray

Dear Father, 

Thank you Father that You are all that I need in this life. I submit and surrender my desires and will to Yours. Breathe Your life into my lungs and keep my heart beating for You and Your will.

In Jesus’s Name,
Amen
