Daily Devotional – The Kingdom of God is Ours

Daily Devotional

Our scripture for the Daily Devotional today is taken from Colossians 1:9-14. Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. The Kingdom of God belongs to those that humble themselves before God.

For this reason, since the day we heard about you, we have not stopped praying for you. We continually ask God to fill you with the knowledge of his will through all the wisdom and understanding that the Spirit gives,[e] 10 so that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and please him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God, 11 being strengthened with all power according to his glorious might so that you may have great endurance and patience, 12 and giving joyful thanks to the Father, who has qualified you[f] to share in the inheritance of his holy people in the kingdom of light. 13 For he has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son he loves, 14 in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.”

God gives the inheritance to those that seek Him

Are you poor in spirit? Perhaps you are bankrupt rather than poor? Being poor in spirit means that you have accurately measured your righteousness. When we accurately measure it, we will easily see that in comparison to the law and perfection of Jesus, we fall well short. For this reason, I am poor in spirit.

Being poor in spirit does not mean that are with no value. 

God has created us with great value. If we were to live as though we had no value, then that would be a great insult to our Father. It was because of the great value that Jesus died on the cross to redeem us.

Let us consider truthfully how we need the perfection of Jesus in our lives. As we acknowledge Jesus, we will be able to rest in His salvation today!

Let’s Pray

Dear Father, 

Thank you for sending Jesus, the perfect one, to live and die for me. I know that I need You and His salvation, and so bring Your kingdom on earth today!

In Jesus Name,

Amen
