Recent Daily Devotions

Silence is golden, perhaps because it is so rare. The siren calls of our age easily drown out silence. Urgent text messages. Email notifications. Blaring news reports. Pervasive social media. Words about silence seem foreign to our eyes and ears."My soul waits in silence for God only; From Him is my salvation ... My soul, wait in silence for God only, For my hope is from Him." (Psalm 62.1,5)Waiting in silence often seems like an exercise in futility. Beyond the noise of technology is the noise of our mind. Thoughts dash around like young children at play. Insignificant tasks suddenly seem urgent.I've lately noticed that if I hope to have a half hour of quiet time with my Father, I need to devote an additional half hour to preparing for it. For me, it takes that long to quiet myself to even begin to enjoy quietness with Him.A divided life is a distracted life. Sure, there are details to be tended to every day of our lives: paying bills, studying at school, working diligently at our job, investing in our families. But, amidst it all, is there a quiet center where we often commune with our Father, and His Son? Is there refreshing, rejuvenating silence with Him that replenishes our drained soul?Out of silence, may we find renewal in purpose and grace to renew and refresh others around us.SteveMy other blogshttp://thetruthrevolution.wordpress.com/  https://kingdomdreamer.blogspot.com/Amazon ebookhttp://www.amazon.com/dp/B00FQ1Q9GWAmazon paperbackhttps://www.createspace.com/4500045Facebook pagehttps://www.facebook.com/azstevetaylor/YouTube video channel https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCxND_ZsDdWXURp9rg88YY7g [Read More]

Most people are familiar with the Golden Rule: "Treat others the same way you want them to treat you." (Luke 6.31) We think of it as applying to our treatment of other, which it does. But, it also applies to our relationship with our heavenly Father:"With the kind You show Yourself kind, With the blameless You show Yourself blameless; With the pure You show Yourself pure, And with the perverted You show Yourself astute." (2 Samuel 22.26-27)In essence, it is a law of returns; we reap what we sow. Live a life of integrity, and God reveals to us His qualities of integrity. Live a calculating, manipulating life and know that God will surely outwit us! No one pulls the wool over His eyes.None of us earn righteousness; that can only be had in and through Christ (Romans 6.23). But, how we live matters. God favors those who live before him with integrity.Out of gratitude for grace, we choose to seek to walk in humility with Him. Mercy given is manifested in mercy shown, as is kindness and love.We have this day to live with godly integrity. May we do so, and know our Father more fully as He reveals Himself to us. SteveMy other blogshttp://thetruthrevolution.wordpress.com/  https://kingdomdreamer.blogspot.com/Amazon ebookhttp://www.amazon.com/dp/B00FQ1Q9GWAmazon paperbackhttps://www.createspace.com/4500045Facebook pagehttps://www.facebook.com/azstevetaylor/YouTube video channel https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCxND_ZsDdWXURp9rg88YY7g [Read More]

Few things generate as much anxiety as opposition. Someone is at odds with you, whether because of jealousy, resentment, or unseen spiritual warfare. Regardless of the cause or source, it stings and stirs up unpleasant emotions."Be gracious to me, O God, be gracious to me, For my soul takes refuge in You; And in the shadow of Your wings I will take refuge Until destruction passes by. I will cry to God Most High, To God who accomplishes all things for me. He will send from heaven and save me; He reproaches him who tramples upon me." (Psalm 57.1-3)David was being hunted down like an animal by King Saul. He sought and found refuge in a cave, but there was the ever-present risk of being discovered and killed. But, he was not given to despair. His confidence was in "God who accomplishes all things for me."Such can be our confidence. God is working on our behalf, with our best interests in mind. Maybe not as we wish, but as He sees best. And He DOES see best. Our ways are not always His ways (Isaiah 55.8). We're prone to short-sightedness, whereas He sees and works according to the big picture. What He accomplishes is consistent with a view of the kingdom of God, and not the fleeting, fickle kingdom of this age.Facing opposition from time to time is inevitable, but need not be defeating. God accomplishes all things for us. He hides us in the shadow of His wings. He delivers. As such, this also is our song of praise and thanks:"I will give thanks to You, O Lord, among the peoples; I will sing praises to You among the nations. For Your lovingkindness is great to the heavens And Your truth to the clouds." (Psalm 57.9-10)SteveMy other blogshttp://thetruthrevolution.wordpress.com/  https://kingdomdreamer.blogspot.com/Amazon ebookhttp://www.amazon.com/dp/B00FQ1Q9GWAmazon paperbackhttps://www.createspace.com/4500045Facebook pagehttps://www.facebook.com/azstevetaylor/YouTube video channel https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCxND_ZsDdWXURp9rg88YY7g [Read More]

"We gain the strength of the temptation we resist." Ralph Waldo Emerson.To yield to temptation is to be mastered by it; to resist is to become master over it. Problem is, it's far easier to yield than resist.There is much to learn from the temptation of Jesus. The devil sought to lure Him according to His perceived greatest weakness: bread after fasting, kingdom power at the wrong time and from the wrong source, reckless use of divine protection. In each temptation, Jesus skillfully brought pertinent Scripture to bear to resist temptation; even when Satan himself quoted Scripture! (Luke 4.10-11)The three biblical responses of Jesus are temptation safeguards:  "It is written, 'man shall not live on bread alone' ... It is written, 'you shall worship the LORD your God and serve him only' ... It is said, 'you shall not put the LORD your God to the test.'" (Luke 4.4,8,12)Resist the temptation to indulge various appetites. Keep your Father central. Yield always to Him, rather than place expectations upon Him. Above all, so immerse yourself in Scripture that it becomes your defense in the face of temptation. "Your word I have treasured in my heart, That I may not sin against You." (Psalm 119.11)Temptation is an ever-present reality in a fallen world. The enemy is adept at bringing it to bear on our greatest weakness. But, our assurance is this: "No temptation has overtaken you but such as is common to man; and God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will provide the way of escape also, so that you will be able to endure it." (1 Corinthians 10.13)SteveMy other blogshttp://thetruthrevolution.wordpress.com/  https://kingdomdreamer.blogspot.com/Amazon ebookhttp://www.amazon.com/dp/B00FQ1Q9GWAmazon paperbackhttps://www.createspace.com/4500045Facebook pagehttps://www.facebook.com/azstevetaylor/YouTube video channel https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCxND_ZsDdWXURp9rg88YY7g [Read More]
