OUR DAILY BREAD 2023 DEVOTIONAL WAS WRITTEN BY OUR DAILY BREAD MINISTRIES
Our Daily Bread Devotional, 8th June 2023
TOPIC: Strengthened through Trials
TEXT: We know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. Romans 5:3–4
TODAY’S SCRIPTURE & INSIGHT: Romans 5:1–5
BIBLE IN A YEAR: 2 Chronicles 30–31, John 18:1–18
People who endure trials and suffering are often changed by the experience. But the apostle Paul went further and said to “glory in our sufferings” because through them we develop perseverance. With perseverance comes character; and with character, hope (Romans 5:3–4).
Paul certainly knew trials—not only shipwrecks but imprisonment for his faith. Yet he wrote to the believers in Rome that “hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit” (v. 5). The apostle recognized that God’s Spirit keeps our hope in Jesus alive when we put our trust in Him.
Whatever hardships you face, know that God will pour out His grace and mercy on you. He loves you.
REFLECT & PRAY:-
How have trials and challenges actually helped you trust God more? How could you commit yourself to His care in what you currently face?
Ever-loving God, You promise that You’ll never leave me. Help me to hold on to Your promises even when I’m struggling.
PRAYER OF SALVATION
Please say this pray
I come to You, Lord Jesus. I admit that I am a sinner, and I want to be right with You. I ask You to forgive me of all my sins. Wash me away from all unrighteousness and cleanse me clean Today. The Bible says if I confess with my mouth that “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in my heart that God raised me.
Thank you for saying that prayer, you are in CHRIST now, Old things have passed AWAY………….HALLELUYAH
