Daily Devotional for Tuesday July 3, 2018
***SPECIAL DAILY DEVOTIONAL COMING LATER THIS WEEK!!! The Bible says that God uses the foolish things of the world to confound the wise!!! Two years ago, who would ever believe that not only would Donald Trump become the President of the United States, but become an instrument of God to bring to fruition 45 years of hard work by millions of faithful servants of the Lord, hundreds of millions of prayers by the saints, to greatly reduce the number of innocent babies murdered in this nation each and every day. IF THIS COMES TO PASS, NOBODY CAN EVER AGAIN CLAIM TO BE AN ATHEIST, AND ANYONE WHO STILL DENIES THE POWER OF CHRIST DESERVES THE ETERNAL FLAMES OF HELL!!!
***JUNE FINANCIAL UPDATE: We ended June with a shortfall of just $5,000. We covered $2,000 of that Monday, leaving just $3,000 left to close our June! Please be praying about what the Lord would have you do over the coming days to help the His work here at Liveprayer. I deeply appreciate your prayers and sacrifices to make God’s work here at Liveprayer available for the multitudes worldwide we minister to each day!!!

***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Dear Lord, help me to get through this day and the challenges that I will be facing today. Guide me, strengthen me, and give me wisdom as I make choices throughout this day. Please watch over my family and those I love in this world, and keep them safe. I love you Lord, and depend upon you each moment of each day. Bless me as I go through the day, living my life for your glory. In the name of Jesus I pray...AMEN!
For many, one of the greatest challenges of this life is finding contentment. For those who have bought into the world system, contentment is impossible. The world system teaches that happiness comes with being successful, being on top. The fallacy of that philosophy is that you are NEVER successful and NEVER on top. There is always someone more successful and there is always another rung on the ladder to climb no matter how high you may get.
Chasing the things of this world and finding contentment in the things of this world is impossible because there is always more and always someone ahead of you!!!
So many reading this devotional today are unhappy, bitter, and in many cases, without any joy or peace in your life because you are trying to find contentment in something that will never offer it to you. It will entice you and make you feel like you are almost there, but then the unquenchable thirst begins and you have to keep chasing . . . chasing . . . chasing until you get to a point you don’t even know what you are chasing any longer.
My friend, there is only one avenue to finding true contentment. That is in your daily relationship with Christ. You see, the short gratification this world can offer you leaves you only wanting more. Your relationship with Jesus give you all you need and then some.
This is a very difficult and involved issue because it is going to require a total re-prioritization of your life. That will take commitment. That will involve a conscious effort on your part to find contentment in something other than what you have been programmed to for most of your life.
It won’t be easy, and my main job today is to be a messenger and inform you that there is true contentment in this life, if you are willing to get it. My prayer is that if this is speaking to your heart today, you will make that difficult decision to find the contentment only found in your daily relationship with the Lord.
I love you and care about you and know many are struggling with this issue today. Open your heart and let God speak to you today. It is not an accident you are reading these words. I am praying for you and will stand with you and help any way that I can. Today is the day of decision, so why put it off. Make the choice today and find the true contentment this life can offer.
In His love and service, Your friend, brother, and co-laborer in His work, Bill Keller
