Daily Devotional for Thursday June 10, 2021
The challenge I want to give you today is this!
(Malachi 3:6; Hebrews 13:8)
***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Dear Lord, this nation is under Your judgment for our sin, wickedness, and rebellion. Help me to be courageous as I stand for You in these perilous times. Use me as a beacon of Your light in the darkness of our world today. Though our enemies surround us, the world around me curses You, help me to stand for Your Truth that will ultimately defeat the lies of satan. May the evil of this world become so apparent, people will begin to bow their knee to You in repentance knowing YOU are their only hope and only answer! In the name of Jesus…AMEN!!!
***ATTENTION HOTMAIL USERS! Hotmail was blocking our Daily Devotionals since Thursday June 3rd. Our techs have worked overtime to clear this up, costing us an unexpected $3,000 this month. We have been fighting this battle with email providers for 22 yrs, but the Lord always helps us to fight on and get His Word out to the masses each morning! We are grateful for our talented tech team and God’s favor. Never forget each morning the Daily Devotional is posted on our Liveprayer.com homepage. If you missed any in the past week you can go there to catch up. I apologize for the inconvenience. Never forget satan is a liar and a loser! OUR GOD WINS!
***THE DAILY LIVEPRAYER TV NUGGET: Our “avatar” President Joe Biden said in addressing June as “Pride Month,” that religious people need to harmonize with LGBTQ activists. Translation, COMPROMISE! This is exactly what has given rise to the “fake church!” THE TRUTH OF GOD’S WORD IS NOT OPEN FOR DEBATE OR COMPROMISE! The Bible calls ANY AND ALL sex outside of the bonds of marriage between a man and a woman a sin...NO MATTER WHAT FORM THAT SEX TAKES! There is no “harmonizing” with LGBTQ activists. The Bible asks, “What fellowship does light have with darkness?” YOU CAN’T HARMONIZE WITH SIN!!! This is a grave error many Christian leaders make when entering into any sort of ecumenical setting. Those who represent the cults and false religions of the world NEVER compromise their lies and deceit, but in order to “get along” they expect Christians to compromise our beliefs. Again, “What fellowship does light have with darkness?” As followers of Christ we should always be willing to engage those who are lost, who have bought into the lies of satan. WE DO THAT BY SHARING WITH THEM THE LOVE OF CHRIST AND THE GOSPEL!!! I didn’t read one time in the NT where Paul on his many journeys, in his encounters with all kinds of people of various beliefs, WATERED DOWN OR COMPROMISED GOD’S TRUTH! No, he engaged them with the Gospel as the only answer for man in this life and for all eternity. Biden is a classic example of a man who on one hand claims to be guided by his faith, yet what good is a faith that you are willing to ignore when it is convenient to do so? True Biblical faith is immutable, it never changes, it doesn’t compromise, IT DOESN’T HARMONIZE WITH SIN!!!

Immutable is one of those $5 theological words that describes an attribute of God. It is one of those attributes that allows us to keep our faith and trust in Him daily. It simply means "without change". That is why we can boldly say the same God who brought you through the storm 3 months ago, is the same God who will bring you through the storm today. He doesn't change.
That is why we can have confidence each day that God loves us. He doesn't change. It is the fact that God never changes that gives us the ability to go to 1 John 1:9 when we sin and KNOW that He will forgive us and cleanse us. Part of the foundation of our faith is this wonderful truth that GOD NEVER CHANGES.
The challenge I want to give you today is this. Take a few minutes and get alone in a quiet place. Get some paper and a pen. Make a list of the following categories: DAILY WALK WITH CHRIST, CHURCH FELLOWSHIP SERVING GOD, SPOUSE (if applicable), CHILDREN (if applicable), MOM, DAD, BOYFRIEND/GIRLFRIEND (if applicable), FAMILY MEMBERS, FRIENDS, SCHOOL/WORK, FINANCIAL, HEALTH, RECREATION/HOBBIES, BONDAGES (such as alcohol, drugs, pornography, gambling, etc.). Now in each category, simply jot down notes as to where you were in this area 10 years ago, 5 years ago, 1 year ago, 6 months ago, and where you are now. Be honest, this is between you and God.
The point of this exercise will be apparent very quickly. WE change. We are not immutable. Unfortunately, much of our change is for the worst and not the better. It doesn't happen overnight but over a period of time just like the tide that slowly rolls in. It isn't even something we notice most of the time.
Looking over your paper when you are done, will clearly focus you on those areas of your life that you need to work on and make some changes in. This may seem like a waste of time, but trust me, God is speaking to you loud and clear as you read these words. He is trying to get your attention.
The 10 minutes it will take you to do this can be the difference between your relationship with Christ being all it can be or having little life in it. It can be the difference between a better marriage or divorce. It can be the difference between having good health or constant battles in that area.
I am not trying to be over-dramatic but the way we change over time, the subtle ways we change without even being aware of it, can lead to many of the problems you are dealing with today. These could be some of the most profitable minutes ever as the Lord reveals to you those areas of your life that need to be worked on.
I love you and care about you so much. I realize many will resist this exercise for many reasons. Ultimately though it is because the enemy will try to stop you from having to face in black and white those things in your life that need changing. We get comfortable in our lives even when they aren't the way they should be. We get comfortable living with sin.
It is like having a mouse in your house. You can't catch it, and may even get to a point where you will try and live with it. My friend, it is time for a Holy Ghost extermination of those things in your life that shouldn't be there. The only thing keeping you from all the wonderful blessings God has for your life is YOU.
I will be praying today that you will take the time to pray, put your life on paper, see those areas that you have moved away from God in, and give yourself a real and precise focus. I talk about game plans as a way of overcoming sin in our life. Once you complete this, you will then have identified those areas that need work. The next step is to formulate a game plan in order to get where God wants you to be in every area of your life. It won't be easy.
It won't happen overnight but over time, working faithfully daily, and in the strength He can supply, you will see victory!!!
We can be thankful today that our God NEVER changes. We do. Now is the time to see the areas of your life that need to be changed for the glory of God!!!
In His love and service,
Your friend and brother in Christ,
