Daily Devotionals - June 2024
12 Jun.

Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters (Colossians 3:23, NIV).

Whatever vocation or profession we’re in, wherever our careers take us, we should always give our best efforts and set an outstanding example. One way we stand out as Christians is by working for God’s glory, not for any earthly rewards.

11 Jun.

I will give thanks to you, Lord, with all my heart; I will tell of all your wonderful deeds. I will be glad and rejoice in you; I will sing the praises of your name, O Most High (Psalm 9:1, 2, NIV).

A thankful, joyful heart is important to God. When we praise Him and express our thanks and gratitude for what Jesus has done for us, it’s hard not to be joyful.

10 Jun.

For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord (Romans 8:38, 39, NIV).

God will never leave us, no matter what happens. We can be thankful for His continued presence in our lives.

9 Jun.

As for me, far be it from me that I should sin against the Lord by failing to pray for you. And I will teach you the way that is good and right” (1 Samuel 12:23, NIV).

When we pray, we’re using a spiritual tool; we can use this tool to offer up to God intercessory prayers on others’ behalf. As Christians, this is something we can all do.

8 Jun.

And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son.  You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it (John 14:13, 14, NIV).

Prayer is how we can talk directly to God, and it’s a powerful form of communication. When we need to have a conversation with Him, He always answers us.

7 Jun.

Again, truly I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything they ask for, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven.  For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them (Matthew 18:19, 20, NIV).

God is closer than we realize. When we talk to Him in prayer, He’s not distant or far away, but right here with us.

6 Jun.

When my soul fainted within me I remembered the Lord: and my prayer came in unto thee, into thine holy temple (Jonah 2:7).

When we’re truly in despair and in deep trouble, God answers our prayers from the heart. Even when we forget Him for a while, He always remembers us.

5 Jun.

The Lord is far from the wicked, but he hears the prayer of the righteous” (Proverbs 15:29, NIV).

Accepting Jesus as our Lord and Savior makes us righteous in the eyes of God. Prayer is a heart-to-heart conversation with God, and He always hears our prayers.

4 Jun.

Thus saith the Lord, ‘The people which were left of the sword found grace in the wilderness; even Israel, when I went to cause him to rest.’ The Lord hath appeared of old unto me, saying, ‘Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love: therefore with lovingkindness have I drawn thee’ (Jeremiah 31:2, 3).

Grace is unmerited, unearned, undeserved favor from God. The children of Israel were in the wilderness, which may have seemed like the middle of nowhere, yet God knew exactly where they were. Likewise, no matter where we are or what circumstances we find ourselves in, God knows where we are and can still bless us.

3 Jun.

Happy is that people, that is in such a case: yea, happy is that people, whose God is the Lord (Psalm 144:15).

God’s promises for us include happiness, prosperity, abundance, strength, and good health. Solely relying on Him for direction and purpose in our lives allows these blessings to manifest in our lives.

2 Jun.

They will come and shout for joy on the heights of Zion; they will rejoice in the bounty of the Lord—the grain, the new wine and the olive oil, the young of the flocks and herds. They will be like a well-watered garden, and they will sorrow no more” (Jeremiah 31:12, NIV).

God’s will is to bless us abundantly with every good thing. True happiness and joy come from the Lord; when we rely on Him, we want for nothing.

1 Jun.

Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel (Isaiah 7:14).

God’s arrival on earth in the form of a man was heralded in advance, and He was born to us just as foretold. “Immanuel” means “God with us,” and He has promised never to leave us.
