Daily Devotional for Wednesday April 7, 2021
***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Dear Lord, I know I have only one life, one life to live for You. This is my moment in human history. Please Lord, let me make the most if it. Use my life to do great things for You as I surrender it afresh to You each morning. When I take my last breath, let there be no regrets, no sadness, that I didn't use my life fully for Your Glory! In the name of Jesus I pray...AMEN!
***THE DAILY LIVEPRAYER TV NUGGET: Dear Lord, our nation is in the grips of FEAR over the current health crisis. We know fear is not of You. You actually tell us in Your Word to, “Fear not, little flock, for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom.” We live in a nation, a world, that has turned its’ back on You, forsaken You and Your Word for the false gods and lies of this world. Let me as Your follower be a living testimony in these fearful days to the lost, hurting, and afraid that You are Lord...You are on Your throne....You and not man will always have the final word! May this current health outbreak here and in nation’s around the world be a wake-up call that we MUST turn back to You and Your Truth! You and You alone are out answer in this life and for all eternity. May sinful man bow their knee to You at this time and find true hope and peace in the midst of our trials. May fear give way to faith...in the name of Jesus Christ my Lord and Savior I pray...AMEN!!!

The spirit is willing, but the body is weak." Matthew 26:41 (NIV)
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 and brother in Christ,
