A Daily Purpose

Bible Study & Devotional by Casey Alexis

Guiding Scripture: James 1:2-4, “Consider it all joy, my brothers, whenever you encounter various trials, 3 because you know that the testing of your faith produces endurance. 4 And let endurance have its perfect effect, so that you may be mature and complete, lacking in nothing.”

🔴 THE NINTH MONTH

A couple of days after my 39th birthday, I found out I was expecting. I was filled with so much joy and hope to know that God fulfilled His promise. The anticipation is a beautiful thing and keeps us looking forward to the occurrence. God brings forth incredible things!

 Expectancy doesn’t just apply to pregnancy.

We can expect the fulfillment of a promise, dream, or vision- a faith that the things we hope for will eventually come to fruition. Most of us have experienced seasons of expectation. What happens when you’re tested through various trials as you wait in anticipation? 

In my ninth month of expectation, doubt entered my mind:

“What the heck is going on?! Have I committed some sin I didn’t know about?” “Do I have some hidden idol in my home?” It was reminiscent of the children of Isreal in the desert…” somebody sinned in the camp.” (Joshua 7:19-20) How can a promise of God be tested so much? If God said it, why am I being trialed in this way? Especially when the fulfillment of my promise is right around the corner. 

I started to go down the woe-is-me route, but then I remembered, “Be anxious for nothing, but pray about everything (Philippians 4-6).” 

As I prayed, the bible verse from James 1 dropped into my heart. I immediately ran to that scripture and began to meditate upon it. Once I did, the heavy burden of the sufferings lifted off my shoulders, and then it hit me!

Many believers give up on the promises of God in their ninth month of expectancy.

 When things get tough, we don’t allow that particular pain to build our endurance. We hardly allow ourselves to become mature, complete, and lacking in anything. Instead, we walk away from the very thing that used to prosper us, give us hope, and a future. Endurance for a believer builds our strength to fight against the enemy. Without perseverance, our faith is easily shaken, battered, bruised, and destroyed, never fully capable of fighting the good fight of faith and running the race Paul described in 2 Timothy 4. 

To endure as a believer is a testament of God’s word being made whole in us as the Bible speaks in Nehemiah 8:10, “the joy of the Lord is my strength,” and in Philippians 4:13, “I can do all things through Christ that strengthens me.” 

Brothers and sisters, let us all endure to the end.

Let us hold on to the truth of God’s word and allow it to be made perfect in us. In season and out of season, let us trust God to fulfill all of His promises in us, knowing that God is not a man that He should lie (Numbers 23:19). When He says it, it will come to pass, not just for the sake of us, but for the world who watches in anticipation to find out if this God thing is real. 

Most of us are walking Gospels to our families, friends, co-workers, and other believers whose faith may not be as great as ours. Please don’t give up because a trial made to build you feels like it has come to destroy you. No, it is allowed to create a more robust version of who God has called you to be. You are a warrior, and warriors are called to fight to the very end. Put on your full armor of God and endure!

Meditate plan mentally; consider: to think carefully about something.
Think carefully and consider God’s Word every moment of every day. He does not give us a spirit of fear but of power, love, and self-control. To be transformed by the renewing of our minds means we must do our work. Clarifying, organizing, and preparing to do our assignment each day takes strategic planning with God. 

🟥 Take Action

🟡 Clarify.

 Seek God’s wisdom and ask for the truth. Don’t turn away from it or blame someone else. 

🟡 Organize.

Take responsibility for your lack of leadership and coordinate with God to resolve the problem with love.

🟡 Prepare. 

Pray and follow the Holy Spirit step by step. This is the point to consider the cost of what your life is producing.

Daily Bible Study with Purpose

Stay Home A 7 Day Devotional by Casey Alexis

In this devotional, we take a tour of what it means to stay home, using the words of Jesus himself from the Gospel of John 14:1-31, as our guide.

 

JOHN 14:16-18, 26-27 NIV

And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another advocate to help you and be with you forever—17 the Spirit of truth. The world cannot accept him, because it neither sees him nor knows him. But you know him, for he lives with you and will be in you. 18 I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you.

26 But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you. 27 Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.

 

🔴 Day 7 The Spirit of Truth

One of the most significant battles for Christians is staying home in the will of the Father’s house when the world offers a “better” option. In times of uncertainty, it can be tempting to do what the world does because of our humanity. But, Jesus tells us that God does not give as the world gives, so to receive what He gives, He promises the Holy Spirit that is our Counselor.

The gift of the Holy Spirit is for every Believer. The Spirit is our Comforter, our Counselor, our teacher, our reminder, our advocate in prayer, and the vehicle that allows the power of God to flow through us. God provides everything we require and more while we STAY HOME and live out our faith in this troubled world.

Are you filled with the Holy Spirit?

That’s a question that can only be answered by looking through the evidence of your life. What does your faith say about your actions? What do your daily interactions say about the Spirit flowing through you? Are you living a life that exhibits the fruit of the Spirit, love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control?

Dear God,

Thank you for the gift of the Holy Spirit. I ask that you remove anything in me that refuses the totality of your favor in my life. I want every good and perfect gift that you have assigned to me. Please continue to pour your Spirit into me as I choose to STAY HOME in you and live this life according to your will and not my own. In Jesus name, Amen

Daily Bible Study with Purpose

Stay Home A 7 Day Devotional by Casey Alexis

In this devotional, we take a tour of what it means to stay home, using the words of Jesus himself from the Gospel of John 14:1-31, as our guide.

 

“If you love me, you will obey what I command…” JOHN 14:15 NIV

 

🔴 Day 6 Love is the Only Way Day

Whew! Now, that verse is a big pill to swallow. One of the most challenging things to do when we are in a season of uncertainty is to trust God’s commands and stay put. It’s easy to follow His directions when He instructs us to do things that we enjoy, things that bring us what we want. But when we are in agony or uncomfortable, we tend to forget His words and begin to look for an instant remedy. Most of us don’t realize that God uses those depressing seasons of our lives to do the most incredible work through us.

Let’s look at the evidence when Jesus healed and set people free. The Bible first tells us of their significant discomfort, grief, demon possession, sickness, and disease. The most extraordinary works came out of those situations. Jesus did His best miracles when faced with significant opposition. Jesus Christ reminds us that greatness forms through resistance, discomfort, and uncertainties.

Have you ever regretted giving love to an undeserving person? 

If you had a past where you may have worn a clown costume a few times like me, then your answer is yes! I can say I gave my love to some fools with complete transparency while on this journey called life. There were times I went out of my way and left home to provide for their needs. If you’ve been there, you know they didn’t warrant our love because of the evidence they revealed in their actions. But God deserves our obedience because we know of the overwhelming proof that demonstrates how much He loves us.

Dear God,

Please forgive me for all those moments I disobeyed your commands because I fell for the lies of this world. I ask that you continue to remind me of all the evidence that proves how much you deserve more than I could ever give. Please continue to provide me with the grace that I need when I fall short to do what you have commanded. In Jesus name, Amen
