October 15, 2014 THOSE WHO ARE DEVOTED
So many times we look over the needs of others because of the things we, ourselves, are dealing with. So many times we think those who are devoted to God seem to have no problems. However, they do. We need to spend time with those who are devoted to God and ask them how we can pray for them and help them. We should submit ourselves to those who are devoted to God by helping them and encouraging them.
1 Corinthians 16:15b-16 “I urge you, dear brothers and sisters, to submit to them and others like them who serve with such devotion.” (NLT)
Dear Lord, help us to not overlook those who are devoted to You. Help us to seek them out and ask them how we can pray for them. Help us to go to them and encourage them thanking them for what they do. Help us to remember them in our prayers and look for ways we can help them. Thank You for those who are devoted to You in their work, those who give expecting nothing in return, those who love and serve You no matter the cost. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
Those who are devoted to God need our prayers just as much as anyone else.
Those who are devoted to God sometimes get overlooked when they are in need.
Those who are devoted to God need encouragement and help from those they serve.
Those who are devoted to God have struggles in the world just as we all do.
God comforts us in time of troubles so we can comfort others when they are troubled.
2 Corinthians 1:4 “He comforts us in all our troubles so that we can comfort others. When they are troubled, we will be able to give them the same comfort God has given us.” (NLT)
Focus: Remember those who are godly today and pray for them. Thank them. Encourage them.
