All Have Sinned…

All Have Sinned
Billy Graham’s Daily Devotion
22 Oct 2013
So it is that we are saved by faith in Christ and not by the good things we do.
–Romans 3:28 (TLB)

Many people still cling to the notion that man is naturally good. We did not get this from the Greeks. Aristotle said, Chr(34)There is no good in mankind.Chr(34) We did not get it from Judaism. Jeremiah said, Chr(34)The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked; who can know it?Chr(34) (Jeremiah 17:9).

We did not get it from Christian teachings. The Apostle Paul said, Chr(34)All have sinned, and come short of the glory of GodChr(34) (Romans 3:23). We got this illusion, I believe, from the philosophers and psychologists of the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries who taught the false doctrine that man is a helpless victim of his environment.

The Bible says that man is not naturally good. All human experience confirms it. Man is rebellious by nature. This first rebellion in history happened in the Garden of Eden, where the environment was perfect and there was no heredity on which to blame it!

PRAYER FOR THE DAY
Each time I become obsessed by the idea that my deeds are so noble, let me remember the magnanimity of Your perfect life.

Searching for Peace???

Searching for Peace?
Billy Graham’s Daily Devotion
17 Oct 2013
Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee …
–Isaiah 26:3

Are you searching for peace? Are you longing for it? You thought you would find it if you made a lot of money, but you didn’t find it. You thought you would find it in getting and accumulating a lot of knowledge, so you got all the degrees you could, but you didn’t find it, this peace.

You’ve searched the religions of the world, but you haven’t found it. There are a thousand ways you’ve turned, trying to find peace, but you haven’t found it. When you come to Christ by an act of faith, He gives you the Holy Spirit who produces the fruit of the Spirit and gives you the peace that passes all understanding.

PRAYER FOR THE DAY
Your presence fills my mind with peace, Lord, bringing into perspective all that I need—You, my heavenly Father.

Loneliness…

Loneliness
Billy Graham’s Daily Devotion
16 Oct 2013
My heart and my flesh crieth out for the living God.
–Psalm 84:2

Loneliness is one of the greatest problems people face today. It is a leading cause of suicide—that is now the third greatest killer of students in the United States. People feel various kinds of loneliness. One of the most common is the loneliness of solitude. Or there is the loneliness of suffering. Many people experience loneliness in society, or there is the loneliness of sorrow, guilt, and judgment.

All of us feel at times a loneliness for God. Someone has called it cosmic loneliness. We don’t know what it is. It makes us restless. You see, man was made for God; and without God, he is lonely. But Jesus is knocking at the door of our heart, saying, “I want to come in. Let me in.” He doesn’t push His way through that door. We have to open it and invite Him in; when we do, He comes in to live forever and we are never lonely again.

PRAYER FOR THE DAY
Lord Jesus, I remember the agony of my days without You. Lead me to the lonely people who need to experience the joy of Your companionship, too.

Pure in Heart…

Pure in Heart
Billy Graham’s Daily Devotion
14 Oct 2013
He that walketh righteously . . . shall dwell on high.
–Isaiah 33:15,16

Being pure in conduct also includes honesty and integrity in dealing with our fellowmen. A Christian should be known in his neighborhood or place of business as an honest person, a person who can be trusted. Jesus said, “Blessed are the pure in heart.” Do you want to be happy? All right, apply this Beatitude to your heart. Take it to yourself.

The pure in heart are the only ones who can know what it means to be supremely happy. Their hearts are pure toward God and, as a result are pure toward their fellowmen. They are happy because, in possessing Him who is All and in All, they envy no man’s worldly goods. They are happy because they envy not another man’s praise. Because they are the enemy of no man, they regard no man as their enemy. The result is peace with God and the world.

PRAYER FOR THE DAY
Forgive me, Lord Jesus, my heart is far from pure. I confess to You all my innermost thoughts.

True Freedom…

True Freedom
Billy Graham’s Daily Devotion
13 Oct 2013
. . . believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable . . .
–1 Peter 1:8

Christ is the answer to sadness and discouragement. This is a world of thwarted hopes, broken dreams, and frustrated desires. G.K. Chesterton says, “Everywhere there is speed, noise and confusion, but nowhere deep happiness and quiet hearts.”

A Hollywood columnist wrote about a famous movie star, “The bright, carefree radiance has gone from her pretty face.” Optimism and cheerfulness are products of knowing Christ. If the heart has been attuned to God through faith in Christ, then its overflow will be joyous optimism and good cheer.

You will never be free from discouragement and despondency until you have been tuned to God. Christ is the wellspring of happiness. He is the fountainhead of joy. Here is the Christian’s secret of joy.

PRAYER FOR THE DAY
By Your love I experience the delight of a quiet heart. Deep down is the joy that cannot be taken away. Lord, may I always keep my eyes on You, my source of joy.

Suffering as a Christian…

Suffering as a Christian
Billy Graham’s Daily Devotion
5 Oct 2013
Blessed is the man whom [the Lord] chasteneth . . .
–Psalm 94:12

God sometimes allows Christians to suffer, in order that they might learn the secret of obedience. The Psalmist said, “Before I was afflicted, I went astray; but now have I kept thy word” (Psalm 119:67). It was not until after great sorrow and much affliction that David learned obedience to God.

My dear Christian friend, if you are today suffering at the hand of God and you have asked a thousand times, “Why?” I beg of you to be patient and quiet before God, and listen to the still, small voice. Bow under His loving hand and recognize that above the clouds the sun is shining. God has a purpose and design for your life, and what is happening to you is for your good.

PRAYER FOR THE DAY
The human in me says, “Why, Lord?” whenever I have to bear suffering—but the Spirit-filled me that was born again says, “I trust You, Father.”

Respect for Authority…

Respect for Authority
Billy Graham’s Daily Devotion
4 Oct 2013
And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All [authority] is given unto me in heaven and in earth.
–Matthew 28:18

Have respect for authority. Jesus Christ was under the authority of His Father in heaven . . . He lived for one thing: to fulfill the will of the Father. Everyone is subject to some kind of authority. There is one chain of command and the ultimate authority at the top is God.

What is the authority in your life? Is it your selfishness? Your lust? Your greed? Or have you turned it all over to God and said, “Lord, You are going to be my authority?Chr(34) When you are under authority, you are then able to assume authority.

PRAYER FOR THE DAY
There are still areas in my life that need to come under Your authority, Lord Jesus. Give me Your grace and strength to yield everything to You.

Our Defeated Foe!!!

Our Defeated Foe
Billy Graham’s Daily Devotion
1 Oct 2013
For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword . . .
–Hebrews 4:12

How do we overcome the devil in everyday life? First, we need to recognize that the devil is a defeated foe. The Son of God came to undo the work of the devil. The crucifixion of Christ, which looked like a mighty victory for Satan, turned out to be a great triumph for God, because it was on the cross that Jesus took your sins and my sins. God laid our sins on Christ, so that when our Lord bowed His head and said, “It is finished,” He was referring to the plan of redemption and salvation. Then . . . we are to resist the devil. If we resist him, Scripture says, he will flee from us. Jesus overcame the devil not by argument but simply by quoting Scripture. That is why it is so important to learn and memorize Scripture passages.

PRAYER FOR THE DAY
Thank You, heavenly Father, for the protection of Your Word as I face everyday temptations.
