Topic: The Father’s Yearning
Today Saturday January 13, 2018
Text: Jeremiah 3:1-12

DCLM Daily Manna January 13 2018 KEY VERSE: “Go and proclaim these words toward the north, and say, Return, thou backsliding Israel, saith the LORD; and I will not cause mine anger to fall upon you: for I am merciful, saith the LORD, and I will not keep anger for ever” (Jeremiah 3:12).

No matter how pained, hurt and disappointed a father may be over the misdeed of his child, there is always a longing in his heart to have the child back to his love. True, he may take some steps to discipline the child; but he has just one purpose for doing this: to have the child realise his wrong, repent and ask for his father’s forgiveness. A real father is ever so ready to forgive and reinstate a truly repentant child. – DCLM Daily Manna January 13 2018

In the passage under consideration is God’s gracious invitation to the children of Israel to repent and return to Him. The children of Israel had consistently sinned and rebelled against God, provoking Him with innumerable abominations in spite of His love for them and the many wonders He had done for them. He had, in the previous chapter, reproved them for their sins and warned of the great punishment for their apostasy. They rightly deserved to be punished and abandoned by God.

But here, He pleads with them to return to Him in repentance. This shows that God delights more in showing mercy and forgiveness than in bringing punishment and judgment on sinners and backsliders. The good news is, no matter how far and deep you have gone in sin and backsliding, God is willing to forgive if you are penitent. Do not allow the gravity of your sins to drive you further away from Him. Yes, God hates sin and rebellion and will surely punish the sinner but He is willing to forgive if you truly repent of your sin, confess and forsake them and receive Jesus as Lord and Saviour.

DCLM Daily Manna January 13 2018 Thought for the day: God’s mercy rejoices over His judgment.

Billy Graham Devotion 13 December 2018 – What God Has Done

Topic: What God Has Done (Billy Graham Devotion 13 December 2018)
With everlasting kindness will I have mercy on thee, saith the Lord thy Redeemer. — Isaiah 54:8

If God is all-powerful and all-loving, it would seem inconsistent with His nature to allow anyone to be lost. Here again we rationalize because we do not understand the nature of God. God cannot go against His own laws and against His own nature. God is holy. He cannot tolerate sin in His presence. He created us free to choose how we would live. He invites us to come His way, but leaves us free to pursue our own ends with tragic, natural consequences.

Billy Graham Devotion 13 December 2018

We glibly say, “Surely a loving God would not allow a person He loves to be lost. He just wouldn’t allow it.” Far from allowing it, God has done everything He can to prevent it! Talk about love! “God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son . . . ” This is good news. Because of what God in love has done for us, we need not be lost.

Prayer for the day: Almighty God, your magnanimous love is felt in my life, as I live each day through the grace of Your Son, Jesus Christ.

Kenneth Copeland Devotional 13 December 2018 – Don’t Panic

Topic: Don’t Panic (Kenneth Copeland Devotional 13 December 2018)
Roll your works upon the Lord [commit and trust them wholly to Him; He will cause your thoughts to become agreeable to His will, and] so shall your plans be established and succeed. –Proverbs 16:3, The Amplified Bible

Right now you may be on the edge of a major decision…about to make a change in your job or your church or your personal life. You know you need divine guidance. And you’re hoping desperately to hear from the Lord.

If that’s your situation, don’t panic. Being led by the Lord isn’t some complicated process that only the spiritual “pros” can master.

Kenneth Copeland Devotional 13 December 2018

I found that out years ago when I was a new believer. I wanted to live in a way that was pleasing to God, but I didn’t know how to make decisions that were in line with His will.

Then one day as I was studying The Amplified Bible, I came across Proverbs 16:3. Immediately, I latched on to this verse and began to use it in my life—and I can tell you now from experience, it works!

It will work for you too if you’ll do what it says. Roll your works over on God, commit your ways to Him, trust them wholly to Him. He’ll start adjusting your thoughts to be like His until, at some point, you’ll just know the right thing to do. Of course, faith is involved. One of the requirements is trust, and you won’t be able to do that without feeding on God’s Word. Then as you practice rolling your works upon the Lord and trusting Him, you become more confident in your ability to hear. Start now with whatever problem is bothering you. Pray and trust God with it. In other words, believe you receive when you pray. Stop worrying and begin believing. 
Kenneth Copeland Devotional 13 December 2018

Learn to live this way and it doesn’t matter whether you’ve been a Christian 30 minutes or 30 years, your plans shall be established and succeed!
