David's Daily Devotion for Jan. 24

January 24, 2023 - Good Morning! It’s Tuesday, January 24.

I John 5:14 is one of my favorite scripture verses on the subject of prayer. You’ve heard it before - “This is the confidence we have in approaching God; that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us”. That’s from my favorite translation - the NIV - the New International Version. But listen to how it sounds in the New Living Translation - “And we are confident that He hears us whenever we ask for anything that pleases Him”. Anything that pleases Him!

I believe that the simple act of prayer pleases God. We are told in His Word that we are created in His image, and doesn’t it please us when an old friend reaches out? Doesn’t it bring a smile to your face when you get a Face Book message from someone in your past? Doesn’t it bless your heart when someone sends you an encouraging email? When you open your mailbox and find a note of love, isn’t that a good day?

Take a moment to reach out to an old friend on this day. They will be blessed. Take a moment to pray today, and you will be a blessing to God!

Meet you back here tomorrow,

Bro. David
