2 Timothy 3:16-17



Week One

"Just Be"


Be With Him

1 John 5:14

God wants to have a relationship with you. What

does that involve? The same tenets as an earthly

relationship, but with of the benefits! In this

relationship, God wants to provide for you, to talk

to you about your life, to support you, to be with

you through the ups and downs, and to shower

you with love unconditionally!

What does He want from you in return? Many of

the same things an earthly partner wants as well.

He wants you to talk to Him, to spend time with

Him, to share your burdens and struggles with

Him, to tell others how wonderful He has been in

your life, and to believe in Him. In return, God

offers us the gifts of grace, favor, mercy and

eternal life.

Because this is an unconditional love, we can rest

assured that when we are on the same page with

God ( much like being equally yoked in an earthly

partnership ) we can confidently approach Him

with our wants and needs. “This is the confidence

we have in approaching God: that if we ask

anything according to his will, he hears us. And if

we know that he hears us—whatever we ask—we

know that we have what we asked of him.” (‭1

John‬‭5:14-15‬)


Reflection

What is the status of your relationship with

God? Are you close or distant?

Are you deep in love with Him or only with

yourself?

Are you fulfilling the tenets here or are you on

the outs with your Creator?

God is always there, waiting for you to spend

more quality time with Him.


Be Accountable

James 1:22-24

When we hear or read God’s word, we become

immediately accountable for enacting it in our

lives. You may be afraid because you’re not yet

ready to be accountable.

“But prove yourselves doers of the word [actively

and continually obeying God’s precepts], and not

merely listeners [who hear the word but fail to

internalize its meaning], deluding yourselves [by

unsound reasoning contrary to the truth]. For if

anyone only listens to the word without obeying

it, he is like a man who looks very carefully at his

natural face in a mirror; for once he has looked

at himself and gone away, he immediately

forgets what he looked like” (James‬‭1:22-24‬)

What is God telling us here?

1. First, we must know and study the word. For

how can we do what we do not know?

2. Second, we must prove that we know and

understand the word by doing it regularly.

Listening to what God says is not enough.

Even faith without works is dead.

3. Third, we must internalize the word. This

means not just going over it once, but over

and over again until it becomes our primary

nature and first response.


Reflection

What do you need to start or stop doing?

How much time are you spending in the word

of God?

Are you afraid to be accountable to God? Why

or why not?

God is always there to hold you accountable.


Be Better

Colossians 3:10

Usually around the first of the year, you hear

phrases like: “new year, new me.” But as you drop

off and become more inconsistent in that pursuit,

the “new year, new me” starts to take on the

“new year, old me” vibe. The world may make you

feel like you can’t have a fresh start unless they

say so. But you don’t have to wait for a new year

to make a commitment to being the better

version of yourself with God.

For as we go deeper in Him (praying, studying,

meditating and embodying the word), the closer

we get to becoming who He has designed for us

to be and the more we are like Him! Colossians

tells us that when we study and adhere to God’s

word and His ways, we are like new every day.

“Now you are wearing a new life, a life that is

new every day. You are growing in your

understanding of the one who made you. You are

becoming more and more like him.” (Col 3:10‬)

So, start over today. Read a little of the Bible.

Think about a scripture. Pray to God. Thank Him

and share your life with Him. Make your requests

known to Him and act like the royalty you are as

His child. Do this, and He will constantly reveal

the better version of you!


Reflection

What are you doing consistently to become a

better version of yourself?

What are you doing consistently that is taking

away from you being your best self?

In what ways do you find that you are like

God? In what ways do you want to improve

and get better?

God is always there, modeling for you how you

can be better.


Be a Child of God

John 1:12

So many times we claim to be "a child of God"

but what does that mean and where in the Bible

did that come from? The book of John gives us a

pretty clear indication that we are children of

God, but once I looked it up in the Amplified

Bible, it may total sense. It reads:

"But to as many as did receive and welcome Him,

He gave the right [the authority, the privilege] to

become children of God, that is, to those who

believe in (adhere to, trust in, and rely on) His

name— who were born, not of blood [natural

conception], nor of the will of the flesh [physical

impulse], nor of the will of man [that of a natural

father], but of God [that is, a divine and

supernatural birth—they are born of God—

spiritually transformed, renewed, sanctified]."

John 1:12‭-‬13 AMP

As a parent, I know how hard it is to raise kids in

today's world. We want our kids to represent our

family name well. As a member of the royal

family, you must consider how you represent

God's family name as well.


Reflection

Do you consider yourself a child of God?

Are you acting like a child of God?

What are you doing currently that would tell

others that you are a child of God?

What could you begin doing to better

represent that family name?

God is always there to welcome you back into the

family with open arms.


Be Patient

Ephesians 4:2

When I think about life situations and choices, I

consider them deeply, and this requires a higher

level of patience from those who are around me.

God also requires our patience as He develops

our faith, but He also requires us to be patient.

Ephesians 4:2 tells us to: “...Be patient with each

other, making allowance for each other’s faults

because of your love.” If this is the way that God

would have us to be, and this is the way He treats

us, then why is it so hard for us to do the same?

God’s ways are always rooted in love and love is

the most unselfish action there is.

Note that I said action, not feeling. Patiently pray

for those who are impatient with you.

Communicate your thoughts to them and see if

their actions change. Remember, the measure

with how you judge others, shall be used to judge

you as well, so be as patient with others as you

would want them to be with you.


Reflection

Look at the people surrounding you. Are they

pouring into you unselfishly?

Are they patient with you? Are they humble

about their own faults and forgiving of yours?

In what areas of your life do you need to be

more patient?

God is always infinitely patient with us because He

does not follow our construct of time.


Be Mindful

Colossians 3:1-2

It is important that we reset our minds as we

prepare for the purpose God has called us to

fulfill. This portion of Colossians reminds us that:

1. We must seek Him and His ways, not the

ways of the world. “Therefore if you have

been raised with Christ [to a new life, sharing

in His resurrection from the dead], keep

seeking the things that are above, where

Christ is, seated at the right hand of God.

2. We must also seek Him habitually, meaning

regularly, consistently, and routinely. “Set your

mind and keep focused habitually on the

things above [the heavenly things], not on

things that are on the earth [which have only

temporal value].

3. We must die to our own flesh and selfish

desires initially, in order for God to align us

with what is best and what will truly benefit

us. “For you died [to this world], and your

[new, real] life is hidden with Christ in God.”

Jesus spent much time in prayer, preparation and

surrender as He prepared to begin His God-given

assignment. Let’s model His approach and take

the time we need to reset our minds on Him.


Reflection

What has your mind been focused on lately?

What should your mind be focused on instead?

How will you continue to keep God and the

things above at the forefront of your mind?

We are always on God's mind. Make sure He is on

yours.


Be Humble

2 Cor 12:6-10

God make us great. Paul, one of the greatest first

teachers of the Gospel, could have boasted this

very sentiment. However, he choose not to do so

because he didn't want people to give him credit

for the great work God had done in him. “But I

refrain, so no one will think more of me than is

warranted by what I do or say, or because of

these surpassingly great revelations.” (2 Cor 12:7)

Now this is humility!

But if left unchecked, humility can morph into

pride. In God’s unique design, a “thorn” was given

to Paul to KEEP him humble and reliant on God.

“...in order to keep me from becoming conceited,

I was given a thorn in my flesh...” ‭(2 Cor 12:7)

Our lives will never be without trouble, but God

says to us, “My grace is sufficient for you [My

lovingkindness and My mercy are more than

enough—always available—regardless of the

situation]; for [My] power is being perfected [and

is completed and shows itself most effectively] in

[your] weakness ... [Paul] for when I am weak [in

human strength], then I am strong [truly able, truly

powerful, truly drawing from God’s strength].” ‭(2

Cor 12:9-10‬) Only in our own identified

weaknesses can we partner with God and

operate in His amazing strength and power!


Reflection

In what area of your life ar you struggling with

humility?

Have you been praying for God to remove a

"thorn in your side?"

God is always encouraging us to maintain our

humility in the midst of every situation.

“Your word is a lamp to guide

me and a light for my path.”

Psalm 119:105



Week Two

"Keeping It Real"


Real Faith

Romans 10:17

Faith is a verb not a noun. It comes from reading,

studying, and knowing the Word of God. Faith is

inspired by knowing God's promises. Faith is given

to us as a tool to have more victory in life.

Romans 10:17 tells us that "Consequently, faith

comes from hearing the message, and the

message is heard through the word about Christ."

Based on this scripture, faith comes from listening

to His word, studying His word, and by keeping

His word in the forefront of your mind.

It's important to note that faith is not just knowing

the scriptures, it's acting in a way that shows that

you believe what God says in His word. It's called

a leap of faith because you have to leave a

secure place and jump into the uncertainty in

order to receive the next thing God has for you.

This is how you activate real faith.

Faith is a complex concept if we think too hard

about it. On the other hand, it is actually easier

to rely on Him because we can trust in the One

that is higher than ourselves. Know the word so

that practicing Faith becomes easier and easier

each day!


Reflection

What is your current definition of faith?

How does it align to the definition of faith

found in His word?

What are you doing currently to activate your

faith? What do you still need to do to show

God that you have real faith?

God is always there to help you activate and

increase your faith.


Real Giving

Luke 6:38

I love the reciprocal nature of God. I believe that

this irony is one of the things that sets His ways

apart from the ways of the world. Here, in Luke 6,

we are taught yet another ironic principle: that

the more we give, the more we receive.

Luke tells us to “Give to others, and you will

receive. You will be given much. It will be poured

into your hands—more than you can hold. You will

be given so much that it will spill into your lap.

The way you give to others is the way God will

give to you.” ‭(Luke‬‭6:38‬‭ERV‬) You may be thinking

about what you’ll lose, but focus on His word:

Remember, you have so much more to GAIN when

you give.

In our carnal nature, it seems that the more you

keep, the more you would have. But God reminds

us constantly that we are not to be ruled by our

own way of thinking. His way ensures that we

remain humble, as well as rewarded in the

process. We must enact our faith in order to trust

with confidence, that He will pour back into us

even more than we’ve poured out. With His way,

He also ensures that others needs are taken care

of in the process (by your giving) AND as a result

of this reciprocity, everyone gains!


Reflection

Where do you see the act of giving and

receiving in your own life?

In what ways has the Holy Spirit encouraged

you to give?

God is always there to remind you that the more

you give, the more you receive.


Real Love

Ephesians 3:17-19

The apostle Paul speaks on the nature of God’s

love in Ephesians. Here are some important

points to remember:

1. Our faith in God is based in and on our love

for Him. “I pray that Christ will live in your

hearts because of your faith.” Love God,

believe in Him, and He will give you the

strength to love others unconditionally.

2. God wants all that we do in life to be

based on love. “I pray that your life will be

strong in love and be built on love.” God is

love, so all that He is, is based on this

principle.

3. God’s love is boundless. “And I pray that

you and all God’s holy people will have the

power to understand the greatness of Christ’s

love—how wide, how long, how high, and how

deep that love is. Christ’s love is greater than

anyone can ever know, but I pray that you will

be able to know that love. Then you can be

filled with everything God has for you.”

Love is not self-serving, it is always abundantly

giving, always serving others and always pure in

intent.” Remember that the truest form of love

originates from God himself.


Reflection

How is God's love different from the love that

we see in the world?

How have you demonstrated love in the past?

How does God's love show up in your life?

God is always there to show you His enduring and

unconditional love.


Real Oneness

Revelation 7:9

There are several things about us as humans that

make us different. We have different religions,

belief systems, cultures and backgrounds just to

name a few. But at the end of the day, we all

have so much in common. We encounter many of

the same universal problems that plague our

lives. But we must choose to believe in something

higher than ourselves.

Religion itself can bring us together as a people

or tear us apart. But I believe that at the end of

the day or at the end of our own lives, it will be

revealed to us who to serve. For me, God has

been my saving grace. He has lifted me from the

darkness and streamlined my path. He has given

me unmerited favor and grace as well as strength

and a place of refuge.

So as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord

God who sent His only son Jesus to earth for

thirty-three years, to be an example of how to

live, and to die on the cross for our sins, only to

be raised three days later. I've seen people from

every race, tribe, nation, and language come

together to celebrate God, so don't let the

differences stop you! We are all one!


Reflection

How do you relate to others, especially those

who may be perceived as different than you?

What do you find similar and different about

those with whom you interact?

What similarities do you see between yourself

and others in mankind?

God is always there helping you to see that we

are all His children; we are one.


Real Follower

Luke 9:23-24

God requires us to do certain things. He is not

Santa Claus or a genie in a bottle. He is your

Creator and your Master and He wants you to

give him all of you so that He can then bless you

in return. He requires us to be followers, not fans.

In Luke 9, we find these words:

“And He was saying to them all, “If anyone wishes

to follow Me [as My disciple], he must deny

himself [set aside selfish interests], and take up

his cross daily [expressing a willingness to endure

whatever may come] and follow Me [believing in

Me, conforming to My example in living and, if

need be, suffering or perhaps dying because of

faith in Me]. For whoever wishes to save his life

[in this world] will [eventually] lose it [through

death], but whoever loses his life [in this world]

for My sake, he is the one who will save it [from

the consequences of sin and separation from

God].” (Luke‬‭9:23-24‬‭AMP‬)

As real followers, we must be willing to sacrifice

our will for God’s will. We must align ourselves to

want what God wants. We must take what comes

because we know that we serve a God that will

support us through it all!


Reflection

In Not A Fan, Kyle Idleman says, “You may

indeed be a passionate, fully devoted follower

of Jesus. Or, you may be just a fan who

admires Jesus but isn’t ready to let him cramp

your style." Which one are you?

How do you know? What needs to change?

God is always there, waiting for you to make Him

a priority.


Real Good

Romans 8:28

Romans is a chapter of the Bible filled with

numerous bite-sized nuggets of wisdom. Wisdom

helps you to live your very best life because it is

the skillful application of knowledge to your

present situation. Romans 8:28 says, “And we

know that all things work together for good to

them that love God, to them who are the called

according to his purpose.” If you take a look at

your life, are you moving with a purpose, for a

purpose, on purpose?

The book of Romans is such a favorite of mine

because it helped me to align how I live and

move with God’s ways. I even named my son

after this book of the Bible. When we mature in

our faith walk, it is pure joy. The challenges that

come to make us stronger actually bring us closer

to our source, our Creator.

Stop thinking that your life is supposed to be

trouble free. Without practice, our faith would be

null and void. So, get still today. Take time to

absorb all that is in your present state, accepting

all that is ( whether it’s good or bad ) and

knowing that it is all working together for your

good.


Reflection

A wise man or woman once said, "Be Happy.

Not because everything is good but because

you can see the good in everything." In what

areas of your life do you need to shift your

perspective to seeing the good?

How can you start seeing more good today?

God is always good and all things work together

for our good.


Real Plans

Proverbs 16:1-3

The scripture encourages us to submit our plans

to the Lord, but even more importantly it tells us

to submit to the Lord’s wisdom in our planning.

It is important to note that verse 1 emphasizes

that our plans should begin with us ASKING THE

LORD his opinion, before we move forward with

our plans. How else could He provide a “wise

answer”? We must ensure that our plans are

checked, approved, and confirmed by God if we

want our plans to succeed.

It is also important to note that your plans will

only succeed if you submit them to God and

respond to His will and guidance around those

plans. We serve a God who knows each and

every one of our desires. He knows us so well that

He becomes the perfect counselor in giving us

advice. Don’t you want someone who knows you

and your future to help you make the best

decisions moving forward?

Remember, “Those who listen to instruction will

prosper; those who trust the Lord will be joyful.” -

Prov 16:20


Reflection

Have you checked in with your Spirit man today

about the plans you have in your heart?

Have you allowed God to vet your plans for

alignment between your motives and His?

Have you shared your plans with the God that

can see your future and listened for His perfect

advice?

God is always there, helping you achieve the

greatest plan for your life.

meditating on it is like trying to eat

Week Three

"Just Like New"


A New Strength

Isaiah 40:28-31

I find that when my life is in balance, I can retain

a high quality state of rest. But when I think about

the times I was stressed, overwhelmed, anxietyridden,

or just overworked, my sleeping patterns

were irregular, sporadic and restless. No matter

how we rationalize it, this is NOT in God’s plan for

our lives. Often, we move through our day like

robots, hoping to accomplish only a fraction of

the things we have planned and when people ask

us how we are, “tired” or “busy” is a familiar

response. So, what does God say?

Isaiah 40 tells us how not to become weary. God

wants to give you the strength and energy you

need for your day. But, He only gives you a

reasonable portion of health and strength to

accomplish what He sets forth as the priority for

your day.

Allow God to strengthen you and to give you rest.

Take your day to Him and allow Him to order your

steps. In these words I say to you, “I ask the

Father with his great glory to give you the power

to be strong in your spirits. He will give you that

strength through his Spirit.” ‭(Eph 3:16‬)


Reflection

Have you run your to-do list by God today?

What is God telling you to do? What are God's

priorities for your day?

Where do you need new strength to endure?

God is always there to show you how to gather

strength and how to obtain rest.


A New Circle

Proverbs 27:17

I don’t have a lot of friends, but the ones I do

spend time with are quality additions to my life.

Who you surround yourself with matters. If the

saying goes that “birds of a feather flock

together,” than knowing who you are, as well as

those around you, is equally as important!

Proverbs tells us that “As iron sharpens iron, so

one man sharpens [and influences] another

[through discussion]” (Proverbs‬‭27:17‬‭AMP‬) When

you interact with another person, you exchange

energy, thoughts, ideas, and beliefs. Who you

allow in your circle matters.

Dr. Myles Munroe said, “Eagles fly alone at high

altitude and not with sparrows or other small

birds. No other bird can get to the height of the

eagle. Stay away from sparrows and ravens.

Eagles fly with Eagles.” He urged us to carefully

select our inner circle, just like Jesus did.

Those in your circle should respect you,

challenge you, sharpen you and build you up. If

your circle is falling short, it may be time to make

some changes. Jesus had a whole lineup of

disciples, but He only took a select few for His

most important tasks. Bottom line: Your Circle

matters!


Reflection

Who have you let into your circle? Who may you

need to move out of your circle?

How have you inadvertently allowed others to

influence you?

Who do you need in your new circle?

God is always there to show you how to surround

yourself with those that are best for you.


A New Love

Romans 5:8

God’s love is the truest form of love we can

learn from and experience. It is selfless, affirming,

boundless, and unconditional. What I find that is

so amazing about God’s love is that we didn’t

even have to do anything to earn it! In the world,

the idea is that you must earn someone’s love by

what you say and what you do for them, but

that’s NOT how God operates.

God loves us because of WHO HE IS and I believe

He wants us to love others because of who He is

IN US! God gave of himself by creating us and

giving us free will to choose Him over the what

the world offers. He then sacrificed His son, Jesus,

allowed Him to suffer an earthly life and die for

our salvation! And He did it because He wanted

to, not because we deserved it or earned it.

God’s love towards us shows us how we should

love others. His demonstration of love is far

beyond what the world shows as love. Love

should be proven (not necessarily earned)

through ones actions and show itself daily

through our words, our giving, and our choices

towards others. It is God’s design that we love

others unconditionally because that’s what sets

us apart from the world.


Reflection

How do you love the ones you truly care about?

Is the love unconditional and proven like God’s

love is for you?

What is your new definition of love?

God is always there to love you unconditionally.


A New Submission

James 4:7

This scripture reminds me of the day I exchanged

vows to my late husband. When my pastor asked me

to repeat after him, I hesitated before repeating the

word “submit“. I can laugh at this now, because I

didn’t even know what the word really meant at the

time. I had a world view of submission (ie. being

subservient, undervalued, and ignored) and knowing

myself, this would never sustain our partnership or

make our marriage great.

Years later, after I lost my husband to cancer, I

realized that submission in marriage is really a

model for how we must submit to God and not

resist His will for our lives. The word tells us that

submission to God leads us into our very best life.

James‬‭4:7-10‬says:

“So let God work his will in you. Yell aloud no to the

Devil and watch him scamper. Say a quiet yes to

God and he’ll be there in no time. Quit dabbling in

sin. Purify your inner life. Quit playing the field. Hit

bottom, and cry your eyes out. The fun and games

are over. Get serious, really serious. Get down on

your knees before the Master; it’s the only way you’ll

get on your feet.”

In order for us to live our very best life, we must

submit to God by making Him first in all that we do!


Reflection

How will you submit to Him today?

How have you failed to submit in the past?

What is your new definition of submission?

God is always there to show you how to live your

very best life. You just need to submit.


A New Mastery

Hebrews 12:11

A wise man once said that “Mastering others is

strength, but mastering yourself is true power.” -L.

Tzu. I’ve learned this to be true (in more ways

than one) and know that the process of selfmastery

is one that can be painful, overwhelming,

revealing, and centering, and yet still be

satisfying all at the same time! God’s earthly

journey was the greatest example of self-mastery

that we have to date. But when we consider

other we admire, it is often due to the miraculous

way they’ve mastered and continue to master

themselves.

What does the word say about self-mastery?

Hebrews tells us that self mastery comes from

discipline and that most people don't enjoy

discipline at the time it is being rendered. What

we DO enjoy are the fruits of that discipline.

“For the time being no discipline brings joy, but

seems sad and painful; yet to those who have

been trained by it, afterwards it yields the

peaceful fruit of righteousness ..."

In all that I’ve been through and all that faces

me now, my most formidable challenge has been

and continues to be mastery of self. May the

journey continue!


Reflection

What areas of your life have you failed to

master?

In what ways have you mastered certain areas

of your life?

What is your new definition of self-mastery?

God is always there to help you master even the

most difficult parts of your self.


A New Lesson Learned

Proverbs 13:18

A mistake is defined as “an action or judgment

that is misguided or wrong.” Every day, we as

humans make mistakes. We say the wrong thing,

do the wrong thing, or judge something or

someone wrongly. Often when we make mistakes,

we want to go back in time and fix them. But, life

does not have an undo or a back button. So what

can we do? We can reflect on and learn from our

mistakes.

Proverbs tells us that “If you refuse to learn from

your mistakes, you will be poor, and no one will

respect you. [But] If you listen when you are

criticized, you will be honored.” (Proverbs‬‭13:18‬

ERV)

But, what is perhaps even more important than

learning from a mistake, is that you are able to

discern and know when a mistake has been made

in the first place. For if you believe that all of your

actions are blameless, you won’t look for or listen

to the criticism that follows and the lesson(s) will

remain unlearned.

If you want to evolve and become a better

version of yourself, then you must reflect on your

misguided actions and judgements and learn

from them. This helps to ensure that you won’t

repeat those same mistakes in the future.


Reflection

What mistakes have you made lately?

What have you learned from those mistakes?

What is your new definition of mistake?

God is always there to forgive you and urge you

to move forward.

I was awakened last night by thoughts running

through my mind that I couldn't stop. When my

sleep is disturbed like this, it’s typically the Spirit of

the Lord God wanting to speak to me. So I

listened and I prayed and that still small voice

spoke to me. How many times have you wrestled

with a circumstance in your life? Have you found

that as you wrestled, your peace was disrupted? I

find this to be a direct result of relying on yourself

to fix your own problems. But what does God want

for you?

A New Peace

1. First, He wants us to have peace. “These

things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye

might have peace. In the world ye shall have

tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have

overcome the world.” (John 16:33)

2. Second, He wants to guide us through our

lives so that we are doing and moving towards

His best for us. “Your word is like a lamp that

guides my steps, a light that shows the path I

should take.” (Psalm ‭119:105‬)

3. Third, He wants to shoulder our burdens.

“Cast your burden on the Lord—he will support

you! God will never let the righteous be

shaken! (Psalm 55:22)

If we share our life with Him, we will experience

the full support that God offers in helping us

through our circumstances. He will guide you

through and you will again have peace.


Reflection

Who or what is disrupting your peace?

How did you wrestle with the disruption?

In what new ways can you handle disruptions

to your peace?

God is always there to give you peace.

Week 4

"Personal Devotions"


“The Bible is meant to be bread for daily use, not

cake for special occasions.”

-Anonymous


It is my hope that as a result of reading this

devotional the past three weeks, that you,

too, will spend more time studying the word

of God.

Now, it's your turn. Each day, open up your

Bible to a favorite scripture or to wherever

Jesus leads you. As you read the passages,

take a few moments to reflect on what the

scripture means and how it can apply to your

own life.

Record those reflections on the following

pages and be sure to share them with

someone else.
