How Christlike Are You Really? Inspirational Devotion

Inspirational Devotion

Scriptures: Matthew 9: 11-13, John 13: 34-35, Matthew 25: 31-46, Hebrew 2: 1-18


I was recently reading Hebrews chapter 2 and I was struck once again by all that Christ has done, and continues to do, for us as human beings. Christ is God the Son- that is the role He chooses to play. But another role that He played was the sacrificial lamb. A 100% human and 100% God hybrid that was tempted like us, but understood completely who and what God the Father is and was, and therefore acted accordingly.
Here’s the truth that I realized: If what you are doing by most is considered hatred, in bad taste, or lacking love then you’re not perpetuating the message of God. Christ got into many arguments with teachers of the law, and even got angry with situations or people that negatively demonstrated what God would want, but no one would ever argue, even in other religions that Christ was not a “good” man.
He spread love within his message everywhere he went. He was persecuted …

Are You a Bored Christian? (Article for Devotional Diva by Yetunde Mitchell) Inspirational Devotion

Image
Inspirational Devotion
Not too long ago I came across this devotional that I wrote to myself when I was feeling really stagnant in my relationship with Christ. Church had become boring, and I really needed a change. I lamented to my husband about my feelings and decided to get real with myself and really evaluate the problem by writing it down. And this is what came out…
I recently had a thought about my relationship with God and how it has changed over the years. At times it’s on fire and I’m full of Godly motivation, but recently I’ve found myself without zeal for God. Almost with an “I’ve heard it all before” attitude. I compare it to the feeling of being a mathematician and feeling like your sitting in Algebra class. There have literally been times in Bible study or regular service when I’ve wanted to raise my hand and say, “I’m sorry, but I think we did this same lesson last week?” Not to say I’m an expert in all things Godly, because I’m not! But I have been going to church my wh…

Inspirational Devotion: Today's Verse: "God is my strength and power: and he maketh my way perfect." - 2 Samuel 22:33

Inspirational Devotion

Remember everything you do is not dependent upon your own strength and power when you have Christ in your life. It is His strength and power that will propel you through each day. You just have to surrender you cares, worry, and path into his hands. What does that look like? Well, first and foremost we all have to make time in the morning to commune with God. This is the fuel that will get you through the day. Next, if you find yourself worrying or even in a high stress situation throughout the day, taking the time to send a quick prayer up to God helps to give you peace and direction. So remember, in order to utilize God's strength and power you have to be able to tap into it through prayer. It is given freely by request!

Inspirational Devotion: "Praise ye the LORD. O give thanks unto the LORD; for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever." - Psalms 106:1

Inspirational Devotion

Today is the day!!! Today is the day that you simply praise God for being awesome, faithful, and forgiving. Today is the day that you acknowledge Him for his place in your life, and all that He has done. Today my friends, is the day, that you show your utmost appreciation for God, for being the I Am.

Peace and Love,

Inspirational Devotion: Today's verse 6: "Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves." - Matthew 7:15

Inspirational Devotion:

There's a whole lotta criticism when it comes to Christianity these days, but the truth of the matter is not everyone who says they're a Christian truly are. We have to start evaluating critically who we choose to follow or link ourselves with on the basis of our Christian beliefs. Although your mouth must profess that Jesus is Lord/Christ/Messiah your (and other people's) actions must also reflect Jesus' ideologies. Be cognizant of yourself and others when it comes to upholding your Christian ideals, because although Jesus operated (and still does) in love, He still told it, like it is, when it comes to our salvation.

Peace and Love,

Inspirational Devotion: Today's Verse 5: "Teach me thy way, O LORD, and lead me in a plain path, because of mine enemies." - Psalms 27:11

Inspirational Devotion:

Learning about God is not as simple as just reading your Bible. You should read you Bible to acquire the knowledge of God's word, but in order to grasp the true meaning of the scriptures we have to ask God to reveal it to us.Knowing and understanding "the spirit" behind a scripture, as in what God really means, takes the revelation of the Holy Spirit. Asking God to give you understanding of how a particular scripture is important, and impacts you, is the step past simply reading, to living the scripture. When a person lives the scripture their path is made plain, and when you walk upon the right path God will help you avoid obstacles that enemies (people with bad spirits and intentions) will want to put in your path. So make sure to ask God to teach you His way, as I do the same!

Peace and Love,

Inspirational Devotion : Today's Verse 4: "I sought the LORD, and he heard me, and delivered me from all my fears." - Psalms 34:4

Inspirational Devotion:

Even though I know that God will always be there for me. There are still times in my life that I allow my fears to take root. I fear not doing well in some particular task, not being successful, not being a good wife, not being a good daughter/sibling, not being a good mother someday, not being a good teacher, not fulfilling my purpose, I could go on and on, but you get the point. I know I shouldn't allow these fears to inhabit me, but sometimes I spend more time worrying about something than I do actually living, and doing what I can in the present.

But all it takes is a moment of clarity, and I remember that God is the master of my universe, and "He's got this!". He will not let me down, and as long as I'm willing, will lead me to be exactly what He needs me to be. As long as you seek Him, He will hear you, and He will deliver you from all of your fears. He will give you a peace that surpasses all human understanding, and no matter how r…

Today's Verse 3: "And I say unto you, Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you."Luke 11:9 If there's one thing most of us know how to do is request something from God. At least we think we do. For some of us our asking gets different results, and many times if the result isn't what we want we feel let down, or disappointed by God.

What if I told you that God would like to give you everything you ask for, but that sometimes as Christians we're simply not asking for the right things. God is our parent, our Father, so He only wants what's in our best interest. If God says no to something, His reasoning is always based on our well-being. Because He knows our ultimate future and our purpose, He is able to gauge what will harm us or what will bring us joy. Sometimes He gives us things that don't bring us joy, that we've asked for, just so that we can learn from our mistakes.

I try to preface my req…

Inspirational Devotion Today's Verse 2: "And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be."- Revelation 22:12

Inspirational Devotion Anytime you're in the service industry you're often unappreciated, as an educator I know the feeling first hand. It's no different for Christians who are out there everyday trying to do God's will, by helping others and showing God's presence in their lives, through their charitable works.The concept of helping others and giving back though, has not been synonymous with the term "Christian" these days. Instead it seems there's an overwhelming thought that calling yourself a Christian and having Christian viewpoints makes you a hypocrite.

People are entitled to believe what they want, but I do think that those who call themselves Christian need to start truly practicing the Word that they claim to believe in. And one of the most important concepts to follow, is supporting the needs of the people no-matter their religious beliefs, or demographic breakdown. After all, at some point, if you truly believe the Bible, there will be an…

Inspirational Devotion: Today's verse: 1 "When a man's ways please the LORD, he maketh even his enemies to be at peace with him."- Proverbs 16:7

Inspirational Devotion:
I can't say that I ever had any real enemies that I've known of, but that doesn't mean they didn't exist. God
is the protector of all things that are His, and He can thwart trouble before it even gets to you. God can also
turn the heart of those who want to do you harm, to suddenly want to encourage you and help you succeed. I've started to look at all negatives as gateways to some positive thing in my life. But it all starts with you pleasing the Lord and seeking Him and his direction; it is through God's pleasure in your loving and serving Him that his giving you favor with man comes from. So start pleasing God, and watch the haters of you, turn into lovers of you. God Bless~

It's finally here! Lola's Prayer Cocktail- Donations only for a limited time LPC  is available as a gift in return for a $5, $10, or $20 donation to the Purposeful Changes Foundation. Instead of just asking you to buy the book we wanted to make sure you knew your funds were going to a good cause. The purpose of Y. L. Mitchell's ministry is simply to reach and help people, not for financial success. LPC will eventually be sold on Amazon and in bookstores at its regular price of $7.99, but the importance of building the ministry, in the beginning, takes precedence over getting the book in stores. Having books in stores when you're a small publication (including Amazon), takes a large percentage away from the proceeds, which unfortunately stunts the growth of the ministry.
