Alphabet Devotional | S

I was overjoyed with the amazing feedback everyone came up with for last week’s letter, “S”. Here were some of what you shared. 🙂

Biblebloggergirl said, “Relinquish- we have to give it all to Him!”

Mia, shared a number of awesome words and scriptures. Way to go, Mia! Here is one of her responses I really liked. “REMAIN—John 15:4 (NLT) “Remain in me, and I will remain in you. For a branch cannot produce fruit if it is severed from the vine, and you cannot be fruitful unless you remain in me.”
REVERENT—1 Peter 3:1b,2 (NLT) “Then, even if some refuse to obey the Good News, your godly lives will speak to them without any words. They will be won over by observing your pure and reverent lives.” “

Lynn, shared,“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you REST [caps by me],” Matthew 11:28″

Hayley, shared,“ROYAL, 1 Peter 2:9 But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light.”

2 John 1:9 (NLT) “Anyone who wanders away from this teaching has no relationship with God. But anyone who remains in the teaching of Christ has a relationship with both the Father and the Son.”

Romans 9:23 (NLT) “He does this to make the riches of his glory shine even brighter on those to whom he shows mercy, who were prepared in advance for glory.”

1 Peter 1:9 (NLT) “The reward for trusting him will be the salvation of your souls.”

1 Peter 1:17 (NLT) “And remember that the heavenly Father to whom you pray has no favorites. He will judge or reward you according to what you do. So you must live in reverent fear of him during your time here as ‘temporary residents.’”

This week’s letter is S

Strength

-The quality or state of being strong.

When we are weak, He is strong. He gives us strength through Christ Jesus.

Shelter

-Protection from bad weather or weather

The Lord is our strong tower. He is our protector. The Holy Spirit lives within us. We are not alone. Christ walks with us.

(NIV) Isaiah 4:06, “It will be a shelter and shade from the heat of the day, and a refuge and hiding place from the storm and rain.”


What “S” words can you think that relate to having a relationship with Christ?

Month Scripture (NIV) Hebrews 12:07 & 11, “Endure hardship as discipline. No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it.”

  1. Sufficient – 2 Cor 12:9 “My grace is sufficient for thee”.

    Wouldn’t we all like to be completely healthy, without fault or trouble? of course! But this does not happen, and we are faced with issues that can easily distract us from God’s grace. God tells Paul His grace is sufficient – He has shown us grace even though we may be struggling. When we focus on all the grace He has bestowed on us, we will find that it is sufficient to bring us through the tough times.

    Be blessed

  2. “Sake”. As concerning the gospel, they(Jews) are enemies for you sakes: but as touching the election, they are beloved for the fathers’ sake.” Rom. 11: 28; Silver and Say: And I will bring the third part through the fire, and will refine them as silver is refined, and will try tome as gold is tried: they shall call on my name, and I will hear them: I will say, it is my people: and they shall say, The LORD is my God. Zech. 13:9. Seek: Seek God for the salvation of Israel.

  3. Soldiers – We are soldiers in Christ’s mighty army:

    Soldiers of Christ, arise,
    And put your armor on,
    Strong in the strength which God supplies
    Through His eternal Son.
    Strong in the Lord of hosts,
    And in His mighty pow’r,
    Who in the strength of Jesus trusts
    Is more than conqueror.

    Stand then in His great might,
    With all His strength endued,
    And take, to arm you for the fight,
    The panoply of God;
    That, having all things done,
    And all your conflicts passed,
    Ye may o’ercome through Christ alone,
    And stand entire at last.

    Leave no unguarded place,
    No weakness of the soul,
    Take every virtue, every grace,
    And fortify the whole.
    From strength to strength go on,
    Wrestle and fight and pray,
    Tread all the pow’rs of darkness down
    And win the well-fought day.

  4. Streams of water. A spring of water. “Whoever believes in Me, just as the Scripture has said: “Streams of living water will flow from within him.'”

    “But whoever drinks of the water that I will give him shall never thirst; but the water that I will give him will become in him a well of water springing up to eternal life.”

  5. Still! 🙂 Psalm 46:10: “Be still, and know that I am God…” ❤

    (Are you surprised that the verse I picked for "still" wasn't Psalm 23:2? "…He leadeth me beside the still waters…" 😅 Of course, that crossed my mind too, how could it not? **glances at blog name** 😂)
