Online Daily Devotionals
For the past several years, Ginghamsburg Church has produced the Transformational Journal (The TJ) as a tool to grow our church family in God's word. In 2013, Ginghamsburg will sharpen its discipleship focus and better equip individuals exactly where they are on their spiritual journey. Although, Ginghamsburg will no longer produce a weekly TJ, these new devotionals offer a range of reading plans tailored to where you are in your faith walk.
For the week starting September 21, 2014
Ready, SET, Go
When there’s a race to run there must be an EXPECTATION to win. In fact, our EXPECTATION will determine our DESTINATION - and God has promised FRUITFULNESS (faith-filled success) to those who intentionally ask, picture and plan forward.
Daily devotionals that accompany each day's reading are also available on Facebook. They are created by a great Ginghamsburg unpaid servant team. You do not have to be a Facebook user to access them. View here.
Day 1: Read Ephesians 3:14-20
This is a very popular passage of scripture, but that last verse is quite the statement—“To him who is able to do infinitely more than we can ask or imagine…” Is that hard for you to believe? Is that hard for you to trust? If, so, why? If not, where does your confidence come from?
Day 2: Read Joshua 6:1-20
Moving toward new beginnings in our life requires us to live with expectation. What does this passage have to say to the power of expectation?
Day 3: Read Jeremiah 29:1-14
This word was delivered to people who had been conquered and were now living in captivity in a foreign land. What range of thoughts and emotions do you think went through their minds when they heard this message? How can you relate?
Day 4: Read Joshua 8:30-35
How many times does the name Moses show up in this passage? What does that have to say about the impact that Moses had on Joshua’s life? In what way do the people we attach ourselves to impact our commitment to live with expectation?
Day 5: Read 2 Kings 2:1-17
How did Elijah impact Elisha’s vision and picture? Who is your Elijah? Who is your Elisha?
Day 6: Read Hosea 10
List all of the warnings to the people of God that can be found in this passage. What does it have to say to us about our own pursuit of new beginnings and moving forward?
Day 7: Read 2 Kings 6:8-22
How does this passage encourage you in your commitment to make new and healthy changes in your life? Spend some time in prayer, and ask God to help you see what God sees and to give you the courage to expect the unexpected.
