Daily Devotionals - November 2022
28 Nov.

“For as the rain and snow come down from the heavens, and return not there again, but water the earth and make it bring forth and sprout, that it may give seed to the sower and bread to the eater, So shall My word be that goes forth out of My mouth: it shall not return to Me void [without producing any effect, useless], but it shall accomplish that which I please and purpose, and it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it” (Isaiah 55:10, 11, AMPC).

God’s Word already contains the power within it to bring to pass what it says. We can therefore confidently go ahead and believe, receive, and speak His Word.

27 Nov.

“For I know the thoughts and plans that I have for you, says the Lord, thoughts and plans for welfare and peace and not for evil, to give you hope in your final outcome” (Jeremiah 29:11, AMPC).

We have an enemy who desperately wants to convince us that God doesn’t love us, and that He only seeks to punish us for our bad deeds. However, God’s Word proves the devil is a liar. God’s thoughts and plans for us are always good, never evil.

26 Nov.

“And he said, Take now thy son, thine only son Isaac, whom thou lovest, and get thee into the land of Moriah; and offer him there for a burnt offering upon one of the mountains which I will tell thee of” (Genesis 22:2).

Abraham’s willingness to obey God was a demonstration of true worship.

25 Nov.

“I will worship toward Your holy temple and praise Your name for Your loving-kindness and for Your truth and faithfulness; for You have exalted above all else Your name and Your word and You have magnified Your word above all Your name!” (Psalm 138:2, AMPC).

Many people erroneously believe God’s Word is no longer accurate or credible. However, there is still supernatural power available to those who wholeheartedly believe in His Word. He has exalted His Word above His own name.

24 Nov.

“But he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit” (1 Corinthians 6:17).

When we become born again, ours spirits become one with God. It’s an eternal union.

23 Nov.

“Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world” (1 John 4:17).

We can have confidence in our right-standing with God when we accept Jesus into our hearts. We’re just as He is, because our spiritual nature has been re-created.

22 Nov.

“And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness” (Ephesians 4:24).

Our spirits were recreated in holiness. They are perfect, complete, and exactly like Jesus.

21 Nov.

“In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise” (Ephesians 1:13).

When we become born again, our spirits are sealed with the Holy Spirit, which means nothing can contaminate our inner man. Our job is then to renew our minds daily so that they will align with our re-created spirits.

20 Nov.

“For the Word that God speaks is alive and full of power [making it active, operative, energizing, and effective]; it is sharper than any two-edged sword, penetrating to the dividing line of the breath of life (soul) and [the immortal] spirit, and of joints and marrow [of the deepest parts of our nature], exposing and sifting and analyzing and judging the very thoughts and purposes of the heart” (Hebrews 4:12, AMPC).

Only the Word of God can penetrate so deep that it reaches the very core of us (our spirits). The Word produces faith within us.

19 Nov.

“And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us” (Romans 5:5).

Since the love of God has been deposited in our hearts by way of the Holy Spirit, we have the ability to love others unconditionally.

18 Nov.

“That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man” (Ephesians 3:16).

God has empowered us with might, which will strengthen our spirit man no matter what the circumstance or situation. We can release our faith in the grace of God that is available to us.

17 Nov.

“What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?” (Romans 8:31).

God loves us, and He is for us. When we know God loves us, we’ll have confidence that we will win in life.

16 Nov.

“Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God. He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love” (1 John 4:7, 8).

Human love is imperfect; it is built on conditions, selfishness, and doubt. However, God’s love is sacrificial, unconditional, and limitless. He empowers us with the grace to love others as He loves.

15 Nov.

“And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him” (1 John 4:16).

There are many ways in which God demonstrates His love for us every day. Each day we should count the ways God expresses His unconditional love.

14 Nov.

“And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased” (Matthew 3:17).

Like Jesus, we are God’s beloved. The devil wants us to believe that God doesn’t love us so that we will feel abandoned and guilty. However, he has no defense against people who confidently know they are God’s beloved.

13 Nov.

“If I [can] speak in tongues of men and [even] of angels, but have not love (that reasoning, intentional, spiritual devotion such as is inspired by God’s love for and in us), I am only a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal” (1 Corinthians 13:1, AMPC).

Like fuel is to a car, the acknowledgment of God’s love is the empowerment that fuels our prayers.

12 Nov.

“For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace” (Romans 6:14).

There is good news for those who are in Christ Jesus. We are no longer dominated by sin, because we possess a new nature that is led by the Holy Spirit, not the law.

11 Nov.

“This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh” (Galatians 5:16).

To walk in the Spirit is to walk according to the Word of God. When you walk in the Spirit, you will not satisfy the lustful cravings of the flesh.

10 Nov.

“By the which will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all” (Hebrews 10:10).

Jesus paid the price for us to be made holy. His redemptive work is eternally complete.

9 Nov.

“In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them” (2 Corinthians 4:4).

Satan blinds the minds of unbelievers because he doesn’t want them to receive salvation. However, once they hear the message of grace, their blind eyes are opened.

8 Nov.

“And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also might be sanctified through the truth” (John 17:19).

The truth of God’s Word, when internalized, will set us apart from the world’s ways of thinking.

7 Nov.

“And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. Faithful is he that calleth you, who also will do it” (1 Thessalonians 5:23, 24).

We are tri-part beings—spirits who possess a soul and live in a physical body. God wants us to be whole in every area of our lives. We are whole when there is nothing missing or broken in our lives.

6 Nov.

“Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth” (2 Timothy 2:15).

Understanding the Word of God comes through diligent study and application. In doing so, we’re able to properly discern the context of what is being said and how it relates to us.

5 Nov.

“Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you. Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you” (John 15:14, 15).

Friendship is a covenant word. When we obey Jesus, we demonstrate the friendship, or covenant relationship, we have with Him.

4 Nov.

“Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you” (James 4:7).

Resist means to actively fight against. Our fight is in maintaining what we have. Victory and success have already been given to us through Christ Jesus.

3 Nov.

“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ” (Ephesians 1:3).

Many times, we chase after blessings we already have. Everything we need for life is in the Word of God. It’s important for us to know where to find these blessings so that we can partake of them.

2 Nov.

“For this reason I am telling you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe (trust and be confident) that it is granted to you, and you will [get it]” (Mark 11:24, AMPC).

Just as the ground receives a seed, we can take possession of the Word of God and get results; we don’t have to live defeated lives. We can receive by faith what we ask God for before it manifests.

1 Nov.

“I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing” (John 15:5).

The branch can’t exist without the vine. Likewise, we can’t produce fruit without Jesus.
