Flipside Day 28

Scripture: Psalm 90:14 Satisfy us in the morning with your unfailing love, that we may sing for joy and be glad all our days.

Devotional: I love those Scriptures that inspire the joy, the benefit, and the importance of prioritizing daily time with God.  This passage is one of them. 

The psalmist beautifully expresses the outcome of meeting God at the dawn of the day: satisfaction, overflowing love, and heart of gladness bursting forth with song.  What a great reminder that our quiet time with God is not a task;  not just an item to be ticked off our “to do” list. It is life giving, nourishing and fulfilling. 

Reflect:

Take time this week to memorize this passage, and as you wake each morning, let it be your prayer. 

Flipside Day 27

Scripture: Matthew 7:13-14  Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it.  But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.

Devotional: Today’s passage is a great reminder that living your life for the important over the urgent is not an easy task.  If it were, the road that leads to life would be characterized with a wide gate and broad road. 

It’s a sobering realization that to live this way is counter cultural.  It’s unpopular. And at times, even lonely.  Following Jesus is not a bed of roses.  Jesus said himself, “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves, take up their cross and follow me.” (Matthew 16:24) The Jesus way is a road that is narrow, less traveled and sometimes treacherous.  But it is the good way, the right way, and the way that leads to glory. 

So friend, when you are weary on the journey, when you are tempted to veer off the path and “go with the flow”, remember what you have to look forward to:  life everlasting and a very great reward beyond what you can imagine. 

Reflect:

  • What “road” would you say you are currently traveling on? Are you choosing life or destruction?
