Colossians 1:9 ” For this reason, since the day we heard about you, we have not stopped praying for you and asking God to fill you with the knowledge of His Will through all spiritual wisdom and understanding.”

The Lord wants to complete His Will in your life. His good pleasure to accomplish this is through the gifts of spiritual insight and comprehension. As Paul did, I too pray a Spirit of wisdom and revelation into you today…that you may perceive His perfect Will for your life.”

Psalm 13:2 ” How long must I wrestle with my thoughts and everyday have sorrow in my heart? How long will my enemy triumph over me? “

Sometimes our worst enemy is our own mind. We struggle silently with our inner self…battling every negative self-image, each personal abasement, every gut wrenching dark emotion. And as we grapple with that inner self…we see that the enemy is no one else… but ourselves.

Mark 9:23 ” Everything is possible for him who believes.”

To the outside world, trusting in Jesus Christ is just plain crazy. To many people, placing your faith in the Gospel is ludicrous. But to the Believer…hope is forged, one faith-building miracle at a time. The world may shake its head in scorn at your trust…but belief in Jesus will never disappoint.

Micah 7:8 ” Though I sit in darkness, the Lord will be my light.”

When those times come of profound sorrow, grief, and heartache, the darkness will shroud even the slightest glimmer of light from our sight. That’s when we, as the body of Believers, must support and under-gird our brothers and sisters…gently leading them from darkness into light. We need to stand in the gap for them, until they can again stand on their own.

Psalm 19:9 ” The fear of the Lord is pure, enduring forever. The ordinances of the Lord are sure and altogether righteous.”

Stand in awe of God today. Look around you…contemplate your surroundings. Draw in a deep breath and consider what He has made. The inspiration and wonder of everything around you is from His hand. Stand in awe of God.

Psalm 19:8 ” The precepts of the Lord are right, giving joy to the heart. The commands of the Lord are radiant, giving light to the eyes.”

God’s principles are right and just…for the Believer, they are not a burden, but rather a joy to follow. There is a sense of security and comfort found there…for within them, we find spiritual illumination and enlightenment.

Psalm 19:7 ” The Law of the Lord is perfect, reviving the soul. The statutes of the Lord are trustworthy, making wise the simple.”

The Law of the Lord is faultless and complete. And by walking in it, we are not only infused with new life within, but we gain insight and perception to do what is right in our daily walk.

I Peter 5: 8-9 ” Be self-controlled and alert. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. Resist him, stand firm in the faith, because you know that your brothers throughout the world are undergoing the same kind of sufferings.”

The devil isn’t very resourceful, he likes to use the same tactics over and over again for everyone…but he makes us think that we’re the only one suffering. And this in a nut shell, is how he isolates us from others and help. The devil will whisper in our ear that whatever is happening in our life – whether it be a temptation, or illness, or mental issue – is so awful that we can’t possible tell anyone about it. So we clam up and self-isolate, afraid to share our “horrible” secret with anyone. But by doing so, the devil has us exactly where he wants us…alone and hurting. This is where the brotherhood/sisterhood of Believers come in…we are all in this thing called life together…a community of Believers that all share the same struggles and problems. For if you are brave enough to share this “terrible” secret with a trusted person…you’ll soon discover that this secret isn’t unique at all. Don’t allow the devil to isolate you from others who can come up along side to pray, share their own struggles, and encourage you in yours.

Psalm 36:5 ” Your love, O Lord, reaches to the heavens, Your faithfulness to the skies.”

Two years ago today, I embarked on a journey with God. And over these months and years He has taken the small pittance I offer, and has multiplied it like the loaves and fishes. God has turned 1 Devotional into 664 posts. He has taken these devotionals around the world to 76 countries who are now reading His Word daily. But most of all He has been faithful, for when I started, I had no idea what I was doing…but the Lord was there every step of the way…and still is today. I would like to thank each one of you who take the time to read Safetypinlove. Thank you for your support and kind remarks. I am truly humbled and honored to be used of God. Pam

I Peter 3:8 ” Finally, all of you, live in harmony with one another; be sympathetic, love as brothers, be compassionate and humble.”

Just think what the world would be like if we all lived by this scripture. Imagine if everyone’s goal was to live a life full of humility, modesty and love for one another. It would take a ground-swell movement, with each individual determining to be a catalyst for change…would you be that person?
