Summer Life Devotions | week1

Over the course of the summer, we are doing summer devotionals together as one church! Every week, we will post seven scriptures, each with a thought and a prayer you can pray. Easy to add to your current devotional life and something we can share over the summer.

DAY 1 

The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have LIFE, and have it to the full.
John 10:10

Thought: In which areas in your life have you found the devil has wanted to steal something         from your life? How can you embrace Christ’s life today instead?

Pray: For the life of Christ to overwhelm the temptations of the world. To live full of His joy today

DAY 2

Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me
John 14:6 NIV

Thought: Jesus IS life.  If we ever wonder where our life, motivation, energy for living comes from – it is Him.  Having a living relationship with Him

Pray: For intimacy with Jesus to grow, so you allow Him to share His motivations with you.

DAY 3

For we live by faith, not by sight!
2 Corinthians 5:7

Thought : Faith is that quality that grasps inside a confidence about something we can’t touch or feel.  We need faith to have a living an active relationship with God and to fulfil His purposes through us.

Pray : For something you are believing for but not yet seeing. 

DAY 4

Then the LORD God formed a man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being.
Genesis 2:7

Thought: God created us as his image and gave us LIFE. We were created for his glory as Isaiah 43:7 said.  

Pray: For hunger to seek Him more and more. Understand all the purpose He has determined for us as a church and personally.

DAY 5

Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it.
Proverbs 4:23

Thought: The quality of our lives, flow from the quality of what flows out of our hearts.  Guard your heart and keep it healthy, and healthy life will flow out of it.

Pray : For a healthy heart and for the life of God to flow out of you today.

DAY 6 

On the last and greatest day of the festival, Jesus stood and said in a loud voice, “Let anyone who is thirsty come to me and drink. 38 Whoever believes in me, as Scripture has said, rivers of living water will flow from within them.”
John 7:37,38 

Thought : The river Jesus was talking about is the Holy Spirit.  He is a person, not a river, but He flows in you and through you like a river.  Let Him flow into and out of you today.

Pray : To be filled again with the Holy Spirit. Pray for an opportunity to bless someone today.

DAY 7

I rejoiced with those who said to me, “Let us go to the house of the LORD.”
Psalm 122:1

Thought : There is life to be found in God’s House, His Church, amongst His people.  Rejoice today for the fact that we get the opportunity to go to Church.

Pray : For our Senior Pastors today, Steve & Lizby Warren.  Pray for Church to be full of health, life and salvation today.
