Devos of the Week – Psalm 47

“For the Lord, the Most High, is awesome, a great King over all the earth.”  The Holy Spirit is given to encourage, empower, and embolden the church in its witness to Christ in the world. The Spirit is given to increase the Kingship of God over all the earth. How can we be tempted to take God’s resources to build our own kingdoms rather than His?  Is our ministry under the great King? – Forgive us O Lord for building our own kingdoms that give us control; help us to surrender to the true King and Your will and ways. Amen.

Leadership Devo of the Week: Matthew 6:33

“Seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness.”  It is common in leadership to hear talk of mission, goals, and objectives and the need to prioritize. Jesus speaks these words in the context of “not putting the needs of life first.”  Perhaps in our day, these words need to be heard in contrast to our “wants” as well.  As we begin a new year, perhaps it is right to sit with the question: Is God’s Kingdom, living out his ways in all of my life, the priority of my life? Give me a heart for one thing Lord. Amen.
