Daniel Fast Devotion - Day 16

Posted on January 18, 2021 at 11:21 PM by Shiloh Baptist Church

Love (The Hallmark – Abiding)
Tuesday, January 19, 2021
Day 16

Read: John 15:1-17; John 13:31-35

Key Verse:
9 “As the Father loved Me, I also have loved you; abide in My love. 10 If you keep My commandments, you will abide in My love, just as I have kept My Father’s commandments and abide in His love,” –John
15:9-10

Key Reflection: 
Often we say, we love GOD, yet how well do we show it and abide (accept, act in accordance with; obey) in Jesus’s Love; thanks be unto GOD for His unconditional love toward us, in spite of our ways.

Thought: 
I’m afraid I might hurt my Father”
A group of teenagers were enjoying a party, and someone suggested that they go to a certain restaurant for a good time. “I’d rather you took me home,” Jan said to her date. “My parents don’t approve of that place.” “Are you afraid your father will hurt you?” one of the girls said sarcastically. “No,” Jan replied, “I’m afraid I might hurt my Father.” She understood the principle that a true child of God, who has experienced the love of God, has no desire to sin against that love (Source Unknown).

Prayer:
Father God, I need to feel your love, as much as a child needs to feel the love of a parent. Open my heart that I may allow your love to come in. I repent of my sins. Transform my heart, mind, body, and soul that I may fully surrender to you, In JESUS Name AMEN!

Questions:
1. Ask God what thing or things you need deliverance from or removed from your life?
2. How can we develop more confidence/trust in GOD’s love?

Daniel Fast Devotion - Day 15

Love (A Conscious Choice)
Monday, January 18, 2021
Day 15

Read: Hosea 3:1-3 

Key Verse:
“Then the LORD said to me, “Go again, love a woman who is loved by a lover[a] and is committing
adultery, just like the love of the LORD for the children of Israel, who look to other gods and
love the raisin cakes of the pagans.2 So I bought her for myself for fifteen shekels of silver, and one and one-half homers of barley. 3 And I said to her, “You shall stay with me many days; you shall not play the harlot, nor shall you have a man—so, too, will I be toward you,” – Hosea 3:1-3

Key Reflection: 
Have you ever loved someone who didn’t love you in return? It can really break your heart and hurt you physically and emotionally. Imagine how GOD feels; Praises to our GOD who loves us unconditionally. GOD still allows us the choice to love Him or love the world. See for reference, Joshua 24:14-15; John 3:16 (NKJV).

Thought: 
In reading Hosea 3:1-3, where do you see GOD? Now, are we in the verses of this Scripture or are we in the world? Which choice do we make each day, GOD, or the world? Do we take time to self- reflect to ensure we are not of this world just passing through?


Prayer:
Father GOD, search me, O God, and know my heart; try me and know my anxieties; and see if there is any wicked way in me; and lead me in the way everlasting, In JESUS name Amen.

Questions:
1. Have you chosen whom you will serve?
2. What action steps are we taking toward GOD?

Daniel Fast Devotion - Day 14

Love Above All (Love God; Love People)
Sunday, January 17, 2021
Day 14

Read: Deuteronomy 5:6-21 

Key Verse:
“For I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God, [d]visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children to the third and fourth generations of those who hate Me, 10 but showing mercy to thousands, to those who love Me and [e]keep My commandments,” – Deuteronomy 5:9-10

Key Reflection: 
Most of us probably recognize these as a portion of the Ten Commandments. However, we also tend to see this as a list of GOD’s do’s and don’ts (do this; don’t do that) but right in the middle of these verses is GOD’s LOVE (vv. 9-10). Thus, showing mercy to those who love Me. God’s mercy is just one characteristic of His love for us.

Thought: 
As you think on this passage of Scripture, does this differ from your definition of love? Now read and meditate on Matthew 22:34-40 and Deuteronomy 5:6-21. Matthew Chapter 22:34 is the summation of today’s reading.

Prayer:
Father GOD, we ask you to come alongside us to show us what true love is, how to love you, and love each other, in JESUS Name we pray, Amen!!

Questions:
1. In what way have you felt God’s Love?
2. How have you been able to share the love of God with others?
