Today’s verse

And we all, who with unveiled faces contemplate the Lord’s glory, are being transformed into his image with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit. 2 Corinthians 3:18 (NIV)

Today’s reading
2 Corinthians 3
https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=2%20Corinthians+3&version=NIV&interface=amp

2 Corinthians 3:4-6 NLT
[4] We are confident of all this because of our great trust in God through Christ. [5] It is not that we think we are qualified to do anything on our own. Our qualification comes from God. [6] He has enabled us to be ministers of his new covenant. This is a covenant not of written laws, but of the Spirit. The old written covenant ends in death; but under the new covenant, the Spirit gives life.

The Light That Never Fails

My Utmost for His Highest
https://utmost.org/the-light-that-never-fails

We must build our faith not on fading lights but on the Light that never fails. When “important” individuals go away we are sad, until we see that they are meant to go, so that only one thing is left for us to do— to look into the face of God for ourselves.

Allow nothing to keep you from looking with strong determination into the face of God regarding yourself and your doctrine.

Today’s prayer
Dear God, Abba Father, Jesus my Lord and Savior. You are the light that never fails. You are the way and the life. So I fight to build my faith only on You. Knowing that it must be Your will, not mine. I must have more of You and less of me. For my confidence is in You, my truth. And I am at my best when You are flowing through me and we are one. How natural that feeling is. But how fragile it is. It’s so easy for lose focus and disconnect. Often without even realizing it. Help me Jesus. I love You, I’m sorry, forgive me, thank You. Amen

Never forget that our capacity and capability in spiritual matters…, and based on, the promises of God.

OneWalk: Under the Sun, with the Son

Today’s Bible Verse, Reading, Devotion, Worship Song and Prayer

Today’s verse

All the promises of God in Him are Yes, and in Him Amen… 2 Corinthians 1:20

Today’s reading
2 Corinthians 1
https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=2+Corinthians+1&version=NLT

It is God who enables us, along with you, to stand firm for Christ. He has commissioned us, and he has identified us as his own by placing the Holy Spirit in our hearts as the first installment that guarantees everything he has promised us.
2 Corinthians 1:21-22 NLT

Today’s devotion
Can a Saint Falsely Accuse God?

My Utmost for His Highest
https://utmost.org/can-a-saint-falsely-accuse-god/

Jesus’ parable of the talents recorded in Matthew 25:14-30 was a warning that it is possible for us to misjudge our capacities. This parable has nothing to do with natural gifts and abilities, but relates to the gift of the Holy Spirit as He was first given at Pentecost. We must never measure our spiritual capacity on the basis of our education or our intellect; our capacity in spiritual things is measured on the basis of the promises of God. If we get less than God wants us to have, we will falsely accuse Him as the servant falsely accused his master when he said, “You expect more of me than you gave me the power to do. You demand too much of me, and I cannot stand true to you here where you have placed me.” When it is a question of God’s Almighty Spirit, never say, “I can’t.” Never allow the limitation of your own natural ability to enter into the matter. If we have received the Holy Spirit, God expects the work of the Holy Spirit to be exhibited in us.

The servant justified himself, while condemning his lord on every point, as if to say, “Your demand on me is way out of proportion to what you gave to me.” Have we been falsely accusing God by daring to worry after He has said, “But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you”? (Matthew 6:33). Worrying means exactly what this servant implied— “I know your intent is to leave me unprotected and vulnerable.” A person who is lazy in the natural realm is always critical, saying, “I haven’t had a decent chance,” and someone who is lazy in the spiritual realm is critical of God. Lazy people always strike out at others in an independent way.

Never forget that our capacity and capability in spiritual matters is measured by, and based on, the promises of God. Is God able to fulfill His promises? Our answer depends on whether or not we have received the Holy Spirit.

Today’s prayer
Dear God, Abba Father, Jesus my Lord and Savior all my hope is in You. I know that because I have not lived up to my spiritual capacities and capabilities, I misused my gifts. As a result I have not lived up to my potential in the natural realm. But I push forward in and with my Lord Jesus Christ, knowing that You use all things for good. So I fight to stay connected to You, with an open heart and mind. Seeking Your will, not mine. Asking that You continue to bless me and mine, enlarging our territory for Your will, keeping us from evil and from causing any pain. Amen
