Devotion August 22

old toshiba (3 of 4)

I am not obligated to you apart from My promises to you. So often you are disappointed because you feel that you have given more than you have received. I am not interested in the things you can do for Me. I am drawn to weakness and humility. I say ‘blessed are the poor in spirit’. There is a great idolatry-of service to Me, in My church. For it is by grace that you have been saved, through faith. It is not by works –so that no one may boast. I am eager to fill empty vessels, who by faith are waiting for their redemption. It is not by might nor by power but by My Spirit. So that you can say “I no longer live, but the life I live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.” ~God

Matthew 5:3 The poor in spirit are blessed, for the kingdom of heaven is theirs.

Romans 6:14 For sin will not rule over you, because you are not under law but under grace.

2 Cor 13:4 In fact, He was crucified in weakness, but He lives by God’s power. For we also are weak in Him, yet toward you we will live with Him by God’s power.
