A daily devotional through the Bible speaking with God as Adam and Eve may have in the garden east of Eden. Our website http://alittlewalkwithgod.com

summary

Do you want to know what God thinks of women? Just watch the way Jesus treated them as He walked among you. He spoke with the woman at the well. He sat in Lazarus’ home and allowed Mary to sit and listen to His teaching. He encouraged women to minister to others around Him and blessed them for their acts of service. 

Men and women stand side by side in importance in God's eyes. Does that mean equal? Not if equal means the same. He made men and women different with different gifts, different physical and psychological frameworks. He made men and women with unique characteristics because He wants each to be interdependent upon the other.

summary

Elisha wanted that double portion of God's spirit. He didn’t want anything to interfere with his getting it. Elisha was prepared to do anything to keep his promise to Elijah to get the kind of spirit he saw in his mentor and would not leave his side regardless of how difficult the journey.

Do you seek God the same way? Do you want Him in your life bad enough to keep going over the rough roads and mountains of life to stick by His side? Do you keep at it when you’re tired and hungry and hot and cold and ready to give up? Do you just keep going because you realize the prize is worth it in the end?

summary

Why would Paul need to tell you to stay alert when you pray? Does he expect you to fall asleep? Well, perhaps. When do you pray? Is it when you go to bed? Do you give God the scraps of your time at the end of the day when you are tired and have no energy left over for Him? Maybe you have your devotions at the very beginning of the day when you are trying to shake off sleep and you’re barely awake.

How are you to hear God's voice if you give Him only the times when you are only half awake? Paul’s admonishment to stay alert when you pray is as important today as it was when he wrote it to the people in Colossae, maybe more so. With your rushed schedules, busy lives, and sleepless nights, the average person seldom gets enough sleep, so early morning and late night you are often not at your best. 

When you read God's word you need to be alert.

summary

Jehoshaphat served God the way David served God. He searched His word. He listened to and obeyed His laws. He did everything God asked His kings to do and God rewarded him for it. Consequently, his coffers grew, even the long lasting enemies of the land, the Philistines, brought rich gifts to Jehoshaphat to honor his reign and he immediately gave the credit to God.

That’s what happens when you’re faithful to God. He blesses you. It may be the same way in which He blessed Jehoshaphat, with riches and power and fear from your enemies. It may come in the form of peace and happiness but without a lot of wealth and stuff to clutter your life. It may come with pain and suffering, but knowing His peace, hope, and love that sustains you in the worst times of life. You will succeed in God's eyes… And that’s what’s important.

summary

Paul exhorts the Colossians to view their continued maturing in God as a hardwood tree that finds it's nourishment from the roots it sends deep in the ground. Grow deeply in God. Find the richest nutrients, the purest water, the safest anchor for the day’s trouble by sending your roots deep. Don’t just touch the surface with your experience with God. Dig deep into His word. Spend time with Him. Study and learn from Him and understand what He wants from you and what He did for you.

summary

Only the good works you do for others on God's behalf have eternal value. Only the relationships you build and the knowledge you gain from being close to Him will pass from this life to the next. Nothing else is real. It’s all just temporary. Just a breath, a wink of the eye, and it’s gone.

Paul’s prayer for his brothers and sisters in Colossae still ring true today. Seek God's will for you life. He won’t hide it from you, but He also expects you to put some effort into finding it. Achievement in life takes effort. It takes work. It takes some sweat and tears and sometimes blood. It’s always worth it, though. God doesn't want any lazy followers. He expects all of His children to do their part in building His kingdom.

summary

Like the evil character in a dime novel, the world is slowly poisoning our minds. Just a little change in language. Not so bad. Slip in a word here and there. It’s okay. Let a towel drop accidentally in a TV scene and black out the screen at just the right moment to tickle your imagination. No harm done. Alternate lifestyle slipped in here and there in contradiction to God's commands. The world says it’s okay. 

More important than ever before the words Paul gives you, “Finally, brothers and sisters, fill your minds with beauty and truth. Meditate on whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is good, whatever is virtuous and praiseworthy.”

summary

Paul found in Christ the hope he tried to find in his religion without success. He felt the forgiveness that lifted the burden of guilt sin placed upon his life and knew the stories he heard from Christ's followers about God's grace and mercy were true. Paul understood the transforming power of His Spirit and gave himself fully to Christ. 

Paul died to himself. He gave up everything for Christ. Paul recognized the mission He wanted him to complete and eagerly accepted it. He saw the eternal ramifications of his decision and the temporary nature of all else around him. Paul could say without any doubt that everything he gained to that point in his life truly appeared as garbage compared to knowing Christ. 

Why? Because Jesus is the Eternal God…and that’s enough.

summary

It might seem I’m always talking to you about selfishness, but that’s the essence of sin, the opposite of perfect love. God's love in you thinks about other’s interests ahead of your own. It doesn’t mean you ignore your own needs, but it meets their needs before your wants. It looks after your brothers and sisters. It demonstrates the kind of love God demonstrated toward you.

 

Paul puts it in terms of having the mindset of Christ - Him incarnate. When He came to you in the flesh, He showed you how to love. He showed you what love really means. It means putting others ahead of yourself even if it means to die. God let you put Him on a cross to show you how much He loves you. He died to pay the penalty for your sins to demonstrate His love for you.

summary

What would have happened had Paul not been imprisoned? How many letters would you miss had Paul been set free? How would the doctrine have survived had God not allowed the Jews to force Paul's plea to Rome for justice? Paul still didn’t understand the full ramification of his imprisonment. He saw how his message spread to the guards, but never envisioned his letters would reach to you…but God did.

Never second guess God's decision to put you where you are. He has reasons for your position in life. Just understand, like Paul, you have an opportunity to witness for Him to those around you. From your witness incredible things can happen. Whether you introduce Him to one person or thousands, the message remains vital to the spread of His name. He placed you where you are today for a reason. Don’t let today go by without knowing your role right now is important to God.
