Daily Devotions from Dan & Sharon Stolebarger
TUESDAY, JUNE 2, 2015
9 “Moreover, I myself say to you: keep asking, and it will be given to you; keep seeking, and you will find; keep knocking, and the door will be opened to you. 10 For everyone who goes on asking receives; and he who goes on seeking finds; and to him who continues knocking, the door will be opened.
COMMENTS: I love the way the Complete Jewish Bible renders this: KEEP ON … Oh, how I need this encouragement to push ahead! Help me Jesus!
Luke 11:35: “So take care that the light in you is not darkness!”
COMMENTS: I appreciate this version. How often do I think I have the light in an area but find out that light is not light at all; I have been deceived and it is darkness? I need to be willing to open myself up, delve into my view on things, and really ask the Holy Spirit to reveal to me light and, equally important, reveal to me where there is darkness that I haven’t been aware of. (Sharon Stolebarger)
2 In vain do you get up early
and put off going to bed,
working hard to earn a living;
for he provides for his beloved,
even when they sleep.
COMMENTS: Again, love the wording here that God now only watches over us as we sleep but that He provides for us even when we sleep! WOW!
17 Thus says Adonai, your Redeemer,
the Holy One of Isra’el:
“I am Adonai, your God,
who teaches you for your own good,
who guides you on the path you should take.
18 If only you would heed my mitzvot!
Then your peace would flow on like a river,
and your righteousness like the waves of the sea.
19 Your descendants would be numerous as the sand,
your offspring countless as its grains.
Their name would never be cut off
or destroyed from my presence.”
COMMENTS: Peace flowing like a river for those who choose to walk in His ways! Make sure that today you make a conscious decision to walk with the Lord – don’t get ahead of Him nor lag behind. As you walk in His ways receive His promised shalom and know that the peace that Jesus gives passes all understanding!
