“God Speaks” is a three hundred and sixty five page daily devotional written in the first person. It is designed to take you through the highlights of the Bible in one year. It begins with a devotional from Genesis 1:1 and ends with a devotional from Revelation 21:1-7. God is still alive and speaking today as he did in the days of the Bible. He may speak through dreams or a donkey, or any other way that he chooses. However, he primarily speaks through his Son, his Word, and his Holy Spirit. He has a message for you. Will you hear his voice today? He has a wonderful plan for your life. You are destined to reign in life with Christ. Discover your destiny and fulfill your dream. God’s plans for you are for your good and not for your hurt. Listen for the voice of God as you journey through the Bible as he reveals himself to you in a wonderful way.
(Here is a sample of the first and last devotions for, plus two in between.)
God Speaks– January 1
In the beginning I created the heavens and the earth.
I am the Alpha and Omega; the beginning and the end. I created all things and by me all things consist. (Colossians 1:17) I have the power to speak the world into existence. I also have the power to accomplish that which is humanly impossible. I alone am the lord and beside me there is no other savior. (Isaiah 43:11)
I even have the ability to lay down my life as a human and to take it back again. (John 10:18) I am also the Good Shepherd. The good shepherd gives his life for the sheep. (John 10:11) I created you and then I gave my life to redeem you so that you could enjoy an abundant and eternal life. (John 10:10)
Since I have the power to speak the worlds into existence, and the power to rise from the dead, I also have the power to accomplish the seemingly impossible in your life. All I ask of you is that you trust me, listen to my voice, believe what I say, and act accordingly. You will then be able to experience things that are exceeding abundantly above all that you can ask or think, by my power that is working in you. (Ephesians 3:20)
God Speaks – April 7
THE GREAT SHEPHERD
In Psalm 23 David paints a picture of me as the Great Shepherd. He said that I was his Shepherd and that he had everything that he needed for any circumstance of life.
Hebrews 13:20-21 also attest to the fact that my desire is to “make you perfect in every good work” by my power working in you as the Great Shepherd of the sheep.
As the Great Shepherd I will give you confidence that your sins are forgiven and that I am your shepherd throughout your entire life.. My presence is with you always to lead you beside still waters and enable you to rest in green pastures. You can be sure that your future is secure with me, as goodness and mercy follows you all the days of your life.
As the Great Shepherd I will give you comfort even through the valley of the shadow of death. I will never leave you nor forsake you.
As the Great Shepherd I will give you courage to face the trials of life and even death itself. You can be assured that the sunset of life here is the sunrise of life in glory. (Hebrews 13:6-8)
God Speaks – October 2
Before you were born I designed a specific plan for your life. You are destined to reign in life with me as I reveal my grace through you.
My calling for Moses was to lead my people from Egyptian bondage. David was to be the king of Israel. I told Jeremiah the prophet, “Before I formed you in the belly I knew you; and before you came forth out of the womb I sanctified you, and I ordained you as a prophet unto the nations.” (Jeremiah 1:5) I knew Saul of Tarsus before he was born. I designed a calling for his life. I called him to be a missionary to the Gentiles. However, he still had the choice to either receive it or reject it. These are not exceptions. They are examples.
I have a plan and a calling for you. No one else can fill that calling like you can. I was there while you were being formed in the womb. I saw you before you were born and scheduled each day of your life before you began to breathe. You are fearfully and wonderfully made. (Psalm 139:14-16)
I designed the plan for your life with the same wisdom and care with which I designed the universe. I want to reveal things to you and through you that I cannot reveal through anyone else. Because you love me, my Father will love you; and I will also, and I will reveal myself to you. I will always be with you. (Acts 9:6, John 14:21)
God Speaks – December 31
THE GLORY OF THE FUTURE
There will be a new heaven and a new earth for the first heaven and the first earth will pass away, and there will be no more sea. Then the holy city, New Jerusalem, will come down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And a great voice will come out of heaven saying, “Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God. And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.” And he that sat upon the throne said, “Behold, I make all things new.” I said to John, “Write: for these words are true and faithful.” Then I declared to John, “It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is thirsty of the fountain of the water of life freely. He that overcomes shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.”
The glory of the future is that as a believer you will dwell with me and share the blessings of the heavenly kingdom where I will rule as KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS throughout eternity. Amen. (Revelation 19:11-16)
Will you be Jesus to another person?
This is the age of relationship evangelism. With every order of “God Speaks” we will include a 32 page copy of the book titled, “How to Enjoy the Abundant Life”. It has been used by the Lord to help countless individuals through the years to come to faith in Christ and to learn the secrets of abundant living. As you pass it along to a friend or family member you are effectively sharing the good news of the wonderful life that God has in store for every individual. You become the hands of Jesus in the world today to reach out and share the love of God with someone else. At the same time you are laying up treasures in heaven where moth and rust does not corrupt and where thieves cannot break through and steal.
