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.

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~
