    Depend on Him By Billy Graham   •   April 19   •   Topics: Holy Spirit Share204 Tweet Home Daily Devotion Depend on Him I advise you to obey only the Holy Spirit's instructions. He will tell you where to go and what to do, and then you won't always be doing the wrong things your evil nature wants you to.—Galatians 5:16 (TLB) To walk in the Spirit is a challenging and inspiring exercise, for it combines activity with relaxation. To walk means to place one foot in front of the other. If you stop doing this, you are no longer walking-you are standing still. Walking always implies movement, progress, and direction. Sin shall no longer rule or dominate you when you are allowing the Holy Spirit to live Christ’s life through you. It is living by faith, living by trust, living in dependence upon God. If we look to our own resources, our own strength, or our own ability, as Peter did when he walked on the water, we will fail. You cannot live the Christian life by yourself. The Holy Spirit must live in you and express Himself through you. Living for Christ is a day-by-day experience. It is a continuous dependence upon the Spirit of God. It is believing in His faithfulness. God is our help. Dig deeper in this Anne Graham Lotz Bible Study. Prayer for the day Lord, so often I have walked on my own instead of walking in Your Spirit. Guide my footsteps this day, I pray in Jesus' name.

    2 Samuel 22:36 (WEB) You have also given me the shield of your salvation.Your gentleness has made me great.      Promise #109: My gentleness will enlarge your life. In today's Scripture verse, King David is making a declaration that God's gentleness has made him great. The Hebrew word for 'great' is pronounced 'rabah' and means to increase, excel, abundance, enlarge, etc. David acknowledged that it was the kindness and gentleness of God that was the reason for the expansion in his life which led to his greatness.It is God's love for us that makes us great. Not our own ability to manage life. A friend of mine says that we can never be worthy enough for love, but it is love that makes us worthy. David knew that this was the secret to his own success. It wasn't his own ability that made him great, but the kindness of a God who loved to show him mercy.The gentleness of our God makes us great too. Jesus told us that we would do greater things than He did because He was going to the Father (John 14:12). My prayer today is that faith would rise up in our hearts because of the kindness of our God and Father. It is the love that He has for us that will make us great.

    Some Truths About Money Money is not true riches. LUKE 16:11 ESV 11 If then you have not been faithful in the unrighteous wealth, who will entrust to you the true riches? Money cannot buy lasting happiness and fulfillment. If money guaranteed happiness all rich people would be happy -- but they're not. Money will never love you back. Money is only a tool to use on earth. LUKE 12:15 ESV 15 And he said to them, "Take care, and be on your guard against all covetousness, for one's life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions." You cannot serve money and God. LUKE 16:13 NLT 13 "No one can serve two masters. For you will hate one and love the other; you will be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money." You can serve God and have money. But you cannot serve two masters at the same time. Only one can ultimately control you. Loving money leads to evil. 1 TIMOTHY 6:10 NKJ 10 For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil, for which some have strayed from the faith in their greediness, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows. Where your money is, there your heart will be also (Luke 12:34). So if you want to know where your heart is, just look at what you do with your money. God is not against His people being rich. But God is against us being covetous, proud, and selfish. 1 TIMOTHY 6:17 ESV 17 As for the rich in this present age, charge them not to be haughty, nor to set their hopes on the uncertainty of riches, but on God, who richly provides us with everything to enjoy. 2 CORINTHIANS 9:11 GWN 11 God will make you rich enough so that you can always be generous. Your generosity will produce thanksgiving to God because of us. SAY THIS: Thank You Lord for teaching me truth about money.

      From The Heavens Devotional by Kevin Hartnett We all have increasingly busy lives, and life in the “information age” only seems to pick up pace. Less frequent landline telephone calls and “snail mail” letters have given way to a daily barrage of texts and twitters. If we miss our e-mail for a day, the number of stacked-up messages looks like the arrival and departure board at the airport. Traffic rages around us daily, resulting in congestion and delays as everyone scrambles to live the “good life” filled with sports, concerts, church meetings, and family events. The kids need attention, the grandparents need attention, the bills need attention—the empty refrigerator, the car, the house, the yard, the garage, our clothes, our jobs, our bodies. Frequently we get to Wednesday of the work- or school week, and we’d swear it was Friday. Bedtime has never had so much appeal! Our Lord understands. The gospel of Mark records that Jesus was so busy healing and teaching those who sought Him out that He didn’t even have time to eat. His mother and brothers thought He was out of His mind. What did Jesus do? He pulled away. He withdrew when the Sun went down to be alone with His Father in prayer. Nighttime gives us a wonderful opportunity to do the same. Take a walk—or at least pull away from the daily grind—and have fellowship with your Maker, Savior, and Helper. If you can, go out beneath the Moon and stars. Think about how Jesus stared up at the very same ones as He prayed, and delight with Him in the discipline of solitude. He modeled its value for us in His own life on Earth. The same beautiful starry sky and gracious Father awaits us as did Him. Go experience them both. Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light. - Matthew 11:28–30

    APRIL 18 You Can Stop Being Taken Captive “And that they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil, who are taken captive by him at his will.” - 2 Timothy 2:26 I’ve heard it told how they catch monkeys in the South Sea Islands: they take a coconut, make a hole in the top, and put a hand full of rice in. A monkey will reach his paw in, take the rice; but then his fist is bigger than the hole, and he can’t withdraw it. Now, when the captor comes, that monkey will scream and plead; but he’ll never let go of the rice. You say, “Foolish monkey!” Well, foolish person, who will not relinquish the sin he is clinging to, that he might have the blessings of God. Foolish person, taken captive by Satan, who will not have power with God because of some handful of rice -- some sin, some habit, some grudge -- that he holds onto. Let go! Don’t be captive!

    Christ Is Our Comforter By Billy Graham   •   April 18   •   Topics: Holy Spirit Share7K+ Tweet Home Daily Devotion Christ Is Our Comforter . . . realize that your heavenly Father will . . . give the Holy Spirit to those who ask for him.—Luke 11:13 (TLB) Before He left His disciples, Christ promised that He would send a Comforter to help them in the trials, cares, and temptations of life. This word comforter means “one that helps alongside.” He is the Holy Spirit, the powerful Third Person of the Trinity. The moment you are born again, He takes up residence in your heart. You may not emotionally feel Him there, but you must exercise faith. Believe it! Accept it as a fact of faith! He is in your heart to help you. We are told that He sheds the love of God abroad in our hearts. He produces the fruit of the Spirit: “love, joy, peace, long-suffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance.” We cannot possibly manufacture this fruit in our own strength. It is supernaturally manufactured by the Holy Spirit who lives in our hearts! Listen to Billy Graham’s message on how the Holy Spirit helps you. Prayer for the day Lord God Almighty, I praise You for Your Holy Spirit who guides and keeps me in all my ways.

    Once again, I have had several instances of a recurring theme show up, getting my attention. In this case it revolves around a shoe. You see, ever since I broke my leg, the time I spent recovering and healing, I found myself truly diving into Gods word for solace and comfort. I also spent a great deal of time painting, (although the paint was digital, just me and my iPad) I was playing around one day and just happened to start a free-form painting, something that looked like a woman's high heel shoe emerged, so I went with it. It came out fantastic, it pleased me so much, that it became the first in a series of shoes. I thought later on about it that perhaps it was because I was injured and desirous of being able to return to such attire (which seemed really far off, if ever at all).LOLRolling ahead, I've recovered, but keep painting my fancy shoes amongst other works of art. Incidentally, over over the last few weeks, I've been drawn to several passages in the Bible, all of which revolve around a shoe or shoes. I watched the movie, the Story of Ruth from the Bible, (Ruth 4:7) who became the wife of Boaz, (the Great Grandparents of David) I read about Moses being instructed to remove his shoes, as he was standing on Holy ground (Exodus 3:5) and the same thing for Joshua (Joshua 5: 14-15). Further research uncovered yet other mention of shoes, such as (Amos 2:6) which refers to Joseph, who was sold by his brothers into slavery! (which speaks to the injustices of this world, those who sit in high places who have dominion and power, supposing to be in good standing, who are not)Every account mentioned above, has different meanings, different connotations attached, one meant concession (forfeiting their possession or rights thereto) another meant humbleness, in standing before God and yet another stood for symbolism of an injustice (where money, possession and power were favored over the kinship of blood and brotherhood). So what is the underlying unifying theme to all of this. It is obedience, obtaining it, remaining in it or the lack of it!I think of a baby, walking around with no shoes, barefoot and it conjures up thoughts of trust, being carefree and cared for. God wants us in spirit to be barefoot to Him, like a baby. We see the loss of a shoe, as symbolic, this applies to anything you might have lost in your life; if it's yours and meant for you, worn by you, what use is it to anyone else?! In all honesty those that take from others will find that their spoils are as useful as one shoe, in other words useless! That which is taken from us wrongfully, will surely have to be returned or counted to us for restitution. Then we have the conscious and intentional forfeit, isn't that a picture of dying to this world for the gain of Christ Jesus?! Having the Lord dwell within us, shouldn't we allow Him to fill our shoes? To order our footsteps and keep us on that path?! Blessed are the feet of those who spread the Gospel! Romans 10:15 And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things! I hope that gives you some new insights on the significance of walking with the Lord and staying in step with the rhythm of obedience!

    For the past eighteen months, I have been priveleged to give to the SBN Share-A-Thon, which is fundraising for air time of the Sonlife Broadcasting Network. But lately, it seems like people are trying to take that away from me. I live in a group home called Suportive Apartments, so I am responsible for buying my own food and personal items. Because I am on SSI, people have been threatening me that if I don't stop donating to SBN, that I will lose my Social Security and end up homeless. But this morning I felt a burden in my soul weighing heavily on me, a burden for souls to get saved through SBN. I truly believe God placed that burden there, and I will keep doanting to SBN until the day I die or the Trump of God sounds. I have been too blessed by this minstry to stop and feel like this is God's calling on my life. If I end up losing Social Security because of my giving to the work of God, so be it. But there is nothing more important than the work of God.

    God only requires of his adult children, that their hearts be truly purified, and that they offer him continually the wishes and vows that naturally spring from perfect love. For these desires, being the genuine fruits of love, are the most perfect prayers that can spring from it. It is scarce conceivable how strait the way is wherein God leads them that follow him; and how dependent on him we must be, unless we are wanting in our faithfulness to him. John Wesley

      "Being  a Chrsitian is more than a  instantaneous conversation it is a daily process '' Billy Graham, " This song should be our prayer to be more like Jesus .................... More Like You More like you, Jesus, more like you Fill my heart with your desire To make me more like you More like you, Jesus, more like you Touch my lips with Holy fire And make me more like you Lord you are my mercy Lord you are my grace All my deepest sins Have forever been erased Draw me in your presence Lead me in your ways I long to bring you glory In righteousness and praise Lord you are compassion And never ending love For you have redeemed me By your priceless blood Create in me a clean heart A spirit that is new The joy of my salvation Is only found in you!

    My Attorney After living what I felt was a "decent" life, my time on earth came to the end. The first thing I remember is sitting on a bench in the waiting room of what I thought to be a court house. The doors opened, and I was instructed to come in and have a seat by the defense table. As I looked around, I saw the "prosecutor." He was a villainous looking gent who snarled as he stared at me. He definitely was the most evil person I have ever seen. I sat down and looked to my left and there sat My Attorney, a kind and gentle looking man whose appearance seemed so familiar to me; I felt I knew Him.The corner door flew open and there appeared the Judge in full flowing robes. He commanded an awesome presence as He moved across the room. I couldn't take my eyes off of Him. As He took His seat behind the bench, He said, "Let us begin." The prosecutor rose and said, "My name is Satan, and I am here to show you why this man belongs in hell." He proceeded to tell of lies that I told, things that I stole, and times when I cheated others. Satan told of other horrible perversions that were once in my life, and the more he spoke, the further down in my seat I sank. I was so embarrassed that I couldn't look at anyone, even my own Attorney, as the Devil told of sins that even I had completely forgotten about. As upset as I was at Satan for telling all these things about me, I was equally upset at My Attorney who sat there silently not offering any form of defense at all. I know I had been guilty of those things, but I had done some good in my life - couldn't that at least equal out part of the harm I'd done? Satan finished with a fury and said, "This man belongs in hell, he is guilty of all that I have charged, and there is not a person who can prove otherwise." When it was His turn, My Attorney first asked if He might approach the bench. The Judge allowed this over the strong objection of Satan and beckoned Him to come forward. As He got up and started walking, I was able to see Him in His full splendor and majesty. I realized why He seemed so familiar; this was Jesus representing me, my Lord and my Savior. He stopped at the bench and softly said to the Judge, "Hi, Dad," and then He turned to address the court. "Satan was correct in saying that this man had sinned. I won't deny any of these allegations. And, yes, the wage of sin is death, and this man deserves to be punished." Jesus took a deep breath and turned to His Father with outstretched arms and proclaimed, "However, I died on the cross so that this person might have eternal life, and he has accepted Me as his Savior, so he is Mine." My Lord continued with, "His name is written in the book of life and no one can ****** him from Me. Satan still does not understand yet. This man is not to be given justice but rather mercy." As Jesus sat down, He quietly paused, looked at His Father and said, "There is nothing else that needs to be done. I've done it all." The Judge lifted His mighty hand and slammed the gavel down. The following words bellowed from His lips... "This man is free. The penalty for him has already been paid in full. Case dismissed." As my Lord led me away, I could hear Satan ranting and raving, "I won't give up, I will win the next one." I asked Jesus as He gave me my instructions where to go next, "Have you ever lost a case?" Christ lovingly smiled and said, "Everyone that has come to Me and asked Me to represent them has received the same verdict as you, "PAID IN FULL."
