Daily Devotional for Sunday December 31, 2017


Isaiah 30:21 (NASB) Your ears will hear a word behind you, “This is the way, walk in it,” whenever you turn to the right or to the left.


Shhhhh… Can you hear it? There it is again! Close your mind to all the sounds of your busy schedule and the world we live in and sit quietly for a moment. Can you hear it now? What did you think when you read the opening lines for today? Did you hear anything as you sat quietly… listening? Maybe some of you thought there was going to be a big bang or some music to go along with the reading. Nope. I want you to take a moment and listen—listen for the voice of God in a small whisper or pull on your heart. Sometimes, we may not hear Him simply because we don’t take the time to listen. Try it now. Sit quietly and see if you can hear Him. What is He trying to stay to you? What does He have in store for you in the upcoming year? 


Personal Application: Continue spending time with the Lord daily. Sow righteousness and reap the fruit of God's unfailing love.

Family Devotional: Read this chapter to your family. Ask them if anything spoke to them as you read. Talk about their answers and show them that one important aspect of this chapter is that we must continue to spend time with the Lord and keep our hearts focused on His plans and purposes. Pray for them.
