Online Devotions

Journaling is an excellent way to hear the voice of God speak into your life. Writing it down helps us to remember what God has blessed us with, as well as the lifelong lessons He wants to deposit into our hearts. Our prayer is that you will allocate some time to spend with the Creator of the universe, and allow Him to mold you into the person He created you to be! 


Below is an example of how we journal using SALT as an acronym to inspire us. The double blessing is that you not only get to learn how to DO devotions but you'll also be discipled by Pastor Sheldon as he shares what the Lord is teaching him!

Speak to me:

Open your Bible to the reading found under today's date of your Bible bookmark. Take time reading and allow God to speak to you. When you are done, look for a verse that particularly spoke to you that day, and write it in your journal. Ask the Holy Spirit to inspire you as you read.


Action:

What do you think God is saying to you in this scripture? Ask the Holy Spirit to teach you what He wants you to do because of what you've read.


Learn: 

Personalize what you have read, by asking yourself how it applies to your life right now. Perhaps it is instruction, encouragement, revelation of a new promise, or corrections for a particular area of your life. What did you learn and what are your next steps?


Talk with God:

This can be as simple as asking God to help you use this scripture, or it may be a greater insight on what He may be revealing to you. Remember, prayer is a two way conversation, so be sure to listen to what God has to say! Now, write it out.

Pastor Sheldon's Devotions

Today's Devotion:


SPEAK EFFECTIVELY


Speak to me:  At Iconium Paul and Barnabas went as usual into the Jewish synagogue. There they spoke so effectively that a great number of Jews and Greeks believed. (‭‭Acts‬ ‭14‬‬:‭1‬ NIV)


Action: Speak effectively in every situation.


Learn:  Paul and Barnabas didn’t just speak with an average appeal, they spoke effectively. Even though synagogue habits were already part of culture, they didn’t treat it as an ordinary opportunity to preach the good news, they made sure they were effective at their message. The greatest message given to mankind deserves the greatest method for effectiveness.


Talk with God:  Heavenly Father, how grateful I am for Your constant encouragement on how incredibly important it is to speak effectively concerning the greatest message given to mankind. Help me today to speak effectively in every situation I find myself in. This way I bring hope to people, not just words. Thank You for showing me the importance of speaking effectively so that many believe in You.

“I LOVE YOU JESUS. AMEN!”
