Remember God’s Marvelous Works – Eighth Night

15Remember God’s Marvelous Works – Eighth Night

1 Chronicles 16:12  NKJV     “Remember His marvelous works which He has done, His wonders, and the judgments of His mouth”

     We should reflect on God’s faithfulness and on the miracles that He has preformed on our behalf. By reflecting on past miracles you will see God working in your life. When you reflect on past miracles it will also build your faith for the miracles you are waiting on.

 

Dear Father,     I thank-you for Your faithfulness and for the miracles that You have preformed on my behalf. I thank-you for working on my behalf, and for the things that You are going to do.

In Jesus’ name, Amen.

dradle - 2God Worked Many Miracles – Seventh Night

Acts 19:11-12  NKJV     “Now God worked unusual miracles by the hands of Paul, so that even handkerchiefs or aprons were brought from his body to the sick, and the diseases left them and the evil spirits went out of them.”

     Paul went into the synagogue at Ephesus, with some of the disciples, and spoke boldly for three months concerning the things of the kingdom of God. Some of the people that heard Paul speaking did not believe him Eventually Paul left with the disciples. After they left there they taught daily in the school of Tyrannus for two years.

All who dwelt in Asia heard the word of the Lord Jesus. God worked unusual miracles by the hands of Paul. The people even took handkerchiefs and aprons from Paul to the sick, and they were healed and delivered through the power of God.

Dear Father,    I thank-you that You are a miracle working God, full of power, and that You choose to work through us.

In Jesus’ name, Amen.

The Miracle Of Jesus’ Birth – Sixth Night

8-30-2012 11;13;36 AM - Copy (2) - CopyThe Miracle Of Jesus’ Birth – Sixth Night

Matthew 1:18-25  NKJV     “Now the birth of Jesus Christ was as follows: After His mother Mary was betrothed to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Spirit. Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not wanting to make her a public example, was minded to put her away secretly. But while he thought about these things, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, “Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take to you Mary your wife, for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Spirit. And she will bring forth a Son, and you shall call His name Jesus, for He will save His people from their sins.” So all this was done that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the Lord through the prophet, saying: “Behold, the virgin shall be with child, and bear a Son, and they shall call His name Immanuel,” which is translated, “God with us.” Then Joseph, being aroused from sleep, did as the angel of the Lord commanded him and took to him his wife, and did not know her till she had brought forth her firstborn Son, and he called His name Jesus.”

     Mary, who was engaged to Joseph, was found with child. Joseph did not know that she was with child by the Holy Spirit. Joseph was just man. He did not want Mary hurt so he thought about divorcing her  secretly.
As Joseph slept an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, “Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take to you Mary your wife, for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Spirit. And she will bring forth a Son, and you shall call His name Jesus, for He will save His people from their sins.”  Joseph awoke and did as the angel of the Lord commanded him to do. He took Mary as his wife, and not many months later Jesus was born.

Dear Father,     I  thank-you that Your sent You Son, Jesus, to the earth to save us from our sins. I thank-you that Jesus truly is Immanuel, God with us.

In Jesus’ name, Amen.

The Lord Spoke To The Fish – Fifth Night

13The Lord Spoke To The Fish – Fifth Night

Jonah 2: 10  NKJV     “So the Lord spoke to the fish, and it vomited Jonah onto dry land.”

      God commanded His prophet, Jonah, to go and warn the people of Nineveh that the city would be destroyed because of their great wickedness. Instead of going to Nineveh, Jonah set out for Tarshish. Jonah wanted God to destroy the people of Nineveh. Because Jonah did not have a right heart attitude, he refused to carry out God’s command. He deliberately rebelled against God.

While Jonah slept on the ship, God sent a storm, causing the frightened sailors to call upon their gods and to throw the cargo into the sea in an attempt to lighten the ship’s load. Lightening the load did not help and the sailors became more and more frightened.

They cast lots to find out who among them had brought this trouble upon them. The lot fell on Jonah and they questioned him about what he had done. He admitted to them that he was running from God. The sailors cried out to God for mercy as they threw Jonah into the sea.

Jonah 1:17  NKJV     “Now the Lord had prepared a great fish to swallow Jonah. And Jonah was in the belly of the fish three days and three nights.”

     Jonah was terrified! He found himself alive in the belly of a great fish, which God caused to swallow Jonah whole. For three days and nights Jonah was in the belly of the great fish. Finally, on the fourth day he cried out to God for help. He thanked God for all that He had done. Jonah knew that only God could save him.

God spoke to the fish and it vomited Jonah onto dry land, and God again instructed Jonah to go and warn the people of Nineveh about their sin. At last, Jonah went to Nineveh in obedience to God. When Jonah preached God’s warning to the people of Nineveh, they believed God, and He withheld His judgment from the city.

 

Dear Father,      I thank-you that You are a God of forgiveness and second chances. I thank-you that You do not give us what we deserve, but that You are patient with us, full of love and mercy.

In Jesus’ name, Amen.

The Lions’ Closed Mouths – Fourth Night

18The Lions’ Closed Mouths – Fourth Night

Daniel 6:18-23  NKJV     “Now the king went to his palace and spent the night fasting; and no musicians were brought before him. Also his sleep went from him. Then the king arose very early in the morning and went in haste to the den of lions. And when he came to the den, he cried out with a lamenting voice to Daniel. The king spoke, saying to Daniel, “Daniel, servant of the living God, has your God, whom you serve continually, been able to deliver you from the lions?” Then Daniel said to the king, “O king, live forever! My God sent His angel and shut the lions’ mouths, so that they have not hurt me, because I was found innocent before Him; and also, O king, I have done no wrong before you.”

     Daniel distinguished himself above all the governors of King Darius. Daniel had an excellent spirit and the king was considering setting him over the whole realm of his kingdom.

Since Daniel had found favor in the king’s sight the other governors became very jealous. They began to plot against Daniel. One of these men said, “We shall not find any charge against this Daniel unless we find it against him concerning the law of his God.” All of them knew that Daniel prayed to God three times that day. They decided to establish a royal statute and to make a decree, that whoever petitions any god or man for thirty days, except the king, shall be cast into the den of lions. Then they had King Darius sign the written decree.

When Daniel knew that the decree was signed he went home. In his upper room, with his windows open toward Jerusalem, he knelt down on his knees and began to pray. As soon as they saw Daniel praying they went before the king and said, “Daniel, who is one of the captives from Judah, does not show due regard for you, O king, or for the decree that you have signed, but makes his petition three times a day.” The king was sad because he like Daniel, but he was bound by the law to have Daniel thrown in the den of lions. The king said to Daniel, “Your God, whom you serve continually, He will deliver you.” Then they cast Daniel into the den of lions and a stone was placed on top of the den.
The king went to his palace where he stayed up all night fasting. Very early in the morning The king hurried to the den of lions. As he approached the lion’s den he  cried out, “Daniel, servant of the living God, has your God, whom you serve continually, been able to deliver you from the lions?”
Daniel answered the king, “O king, live forever! My God sent His angel and shut the lions’ mouths, so that they have not hurt me, because I was found innocent before Him and also, O king, I have done no wrong before you.”
The king was very glad and commanded that Daniel be removed from the lion’s den. No injury whatsoever was found on Daniel.

 

Dear Father,     I thank-you that You honor our faithfulness and devotion to You. I thank-you that You shield us from our enemy’s attack when we take a stand for You, and that we find favor with man.

In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Hannah‘s Miracle – Third Night

24Hannah‘s Miracle – Third Night

1 Samuel 1:20 NKJV     “So it came to pass in the process of time that Hannah conceived and bore a son, and called his name Samuel, saying, “Because I have asked for him from the Lord.”

     Hannah went with her family each year to Shiloh to worship and offer a sacrifice to the Lord. One morning after they had finished eating Hannah went to the house of the Lord. At the tabernacle of the Lord she prayed to the Lord and cried out in sorrow. Hannah had no children and she desperately wanted a son. Then she made a vow and said, “O Lord of hosts, if You will indeed look on the affliction of Your maidservant and remember me, and not forget Your maidservant, but will give Your maidservant a male child, then I will give him to the Lord all the days of his life, and no razor shall come upon his head.”

When Eli came into the tabernacle he saw Hannah praying so hard that only her lips moved, her voice was not heard, so Eli thought she was drunk.

Hannah told Eli that she had been pouring out her soul before the Lord. Then Eli said, “Go in peace, and the God of Israel grant your petition which you have asked of Him.”  Then Hannah went her way and she was no longer sad. In time, God answered her prayer and she gave birth to a son, whom she named Samuel.

Dear Father,     I thank-you that You see my heart and that You hear and answer my prayers. There is nothing too big or you small for You. You alone can cause the barren to come to life. I thank-you that You are the one who brings peace and true joy.

In Jesus’ name, Amen.

The Sun Stands Still – Second Night

sunThe Sun Stands Still – Second Night

Joshua 10:12-14  NKJV       “Then Joshua spoke to the Lord in the day when the Lord delivered up the Amorites before the children of Israel, and he said in the sight of Israel: “Sun, stand still over Gibeon; And Moon, in the Valley of Aijalon.” So the sun stood still, And the moon stopped, Till the people had revenge Upon their enemies. Is this not written in the Book of Jasher? So the sun stood still in the midst of heaven, and did not hasten to go down for about a whole day. And there has been no day like that, before it or after it, that the Lord heeded the voice of a man; for the Lord fought for Israel.”

     The five kings of the Amorites  gathered together with all their armies to attack Gibeon because they had had made peace with Israel. The men of Gibeon sent a message to Joshua about the Amorites, asking that he come and help them fight their enemy. So Joshua and all the people of war set out to Gibeon. The Lord said to Joshua, “Do not fear them, for I have delivered them into your hand.”

During the battle Joshua called out to God and said, “Sun, stand still over Gibeon and Moon, in the Valley of Aijalon.” Hearing Joshua’s request, God caused the sun to stand still and the moon to stop for a period of time, allowing the people victory over their enemies.

Dear Father,     I thank-you that You have power over everything and that You can do all things. I thank-You that You hear my cry and you help me overcome what ever comes against me. Through You alone I have victory!

In Jesus’ name, Amen.

The Waters Divide – First Night

25The Waters Divide – First Night

Exodus 14:21-22  NKJV     “Then Moses stretched out his hand over the sea; and the Lord caused the sea to go back by a strong east wind all that night, and made the sea into dry land, and the waters were divided. So the children of Israel went into the midst of the sea on the dry ground, and the waters were a wall to them on their right hand and on their left.”

     When they left Egypt, the Hebrews were perused by the Egyptians. They came to a point where the enemy was behind them, mountains to each side of them, and a sea in front of them. To the natural eye it looked like certain death for the Hebrews. They had no way to escape from the Egyptians. However, God had a plan – He provided a way of escape for His people.

All night God caused a strong wind to blow across the sea. This wind made a path through the sea and made the sea bed dry. All the Hebrews, the children of Israel, were able to escape their enemy by crossing the sea on dry ground.

 

Dear Father,    I thank-you that You always make a way for me to escape from my enemies. I thank-you that nothing is beyond Your control.

In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Remembering Great Miracles

Hanukkah Devotions Book 2

The Feast of Dedication is an annual festival celebrated on eight successive days to honor the restoration of true worship in the temple after it had been defiled. After regaining control of the temple, it had to be purified before it could be used again to worship the one and only true God. The altar was torn down and rebuilt and new vessels were made. When everything was finished the curtain was hung and the bread of presence was put on the table.

On the twenty-fifth of Kislev the temple was the rededicated unto God .All the oil that had been found was  poured into the menorah, however, it would only enough to last for one day. The menorah was lit and miraculously it lasted for eight days, the exact time it took for new oil to be made!

Hanukkah is about remembering miracles and the God that can do great miracles.
