JOHN HAGEE 2 FEBRUARY 2024 DAILY DEVOTIONAL MESSAGE
John Hagee 2nd February 2024 Daily Devotional, Friday Devotional Message. As you study today’s devotional, remember this; “Work hard so you can present yourself to God and receive his approval. Be a good worker, one who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly explains the word of truth.” 2 Timothy 2:15 (NLT)
Give us this day our daily bread. – Matthew 6:11
All of us crave the liberty and joy that can be found in relationship with Jesus Christ. Hiding behind that desire, though, we may harbor a taste for our old lives.
We long for Christ’s forgiveness, but we carry a grudge against another. We pray for the blessings of prosperity, but we seethe with jealousy when He blesses our neighbor. We relish the gift of grace, but we judge others instead of extending that same generosity.
We combine two things that do not mix – daily bread with deadly bread! We must choose between the daily bread of heaven that comes from God or the deadly bread of this world.
Our daily bread says that God is more than enough, while the deadly bread tells us that we need more. Our daily bread instructs us to love our neighbors and bless those who persecute us, while the deadly bread pushes us to seek revenge.
God has generously provided us with His daily bread through the inspiration of the Holy Spirit. From the pages of His Word springs the message of salvation, freedom, hope, and redemption.
We must repent and cut away those cravings for our old lives—deadly bread—and the certain death to which they lead. We must embrace the daily bread given by a loving Father who satisfies our every longing with good gifts.
May the Lord bless you and keep you. May the Lord make His face to shine upon you and be gracious unto you and give you His peace. May you hunger for the daily bread of God. May you feast on it to find deeper faith and the fullness of life in Him.
