Billy Graham Devotions 3 June 2019 – Being Rich

Today’s Topic: Being Rich

Real life and real living are not related to how rich we are.
—Luke 12:15 (TLB)
There are two ways of being rich—have a lot, or want very little. The latter way is the easier for most of us. Many people make themselves miserable by wanting more than they can ever have. They suffer from “thing-itis,” the insatiable desire for more, better, and newer things. Jesus was the most satisfied man that ever lived, and He had less than most of us. “The foxes have their holes, and the birds their nests, but the Son of man has no place to lay His head.” He had learned the secret of adjusting His wants to His needs.

E. Stanley Jones tells about a poor man who had an overnight guest, and as he showed him to his humble bedroom in the hayloft, he said, “If there is anything you want, let us know, and we’ll come and show you how to get along without it.” We don’t need to learn how to get more, but how to get along with what we’ve got, and get on with the business of living.

Does the Bible say money is evil? Read Billy Graham’s response.

Prayer for the day
Father, You have given me so much more than I deserve. May I always show a grateful and contented heart.

Billy Graham Devotions 27 June 2019 – Who Am I?

TODAY’S TOPIC: WHO AM I?

Key Verse: What a glorious Lord! He who daily bears our burdens also gives us our salvation. —Psalm 68:19 (TLB)

Edward Dahlberg, the writer, observed, “At 19, I was a stranger to myself. At 40, I asked, ‘Who am I?’ At 50, I concluded I would never know.” This unexplored personal wilderness is the home of millions of people. Ninety-two percent of all Canadian university students, according to June Callwood, the Toronto sociologist, don’t really know who they are.

The Bible says that man is an immortal soul. When God made man in the first place, He created him and “breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul” (Genesis 2:7). One’s soul is the essence, the core, the eternal and real person. And he will be restless until he opens his life to Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord.

You are a masterpiece created by God Himself. Do you have a relationship with your Creator?

Prayer for the day
Almighty God, knowing I am Your child is all the assurance I need.

Billy Graham Devotions 26 June 2019 – Energy Under Control

TODAY’S TOPIC: ENERGY UNDER CONTROL

Key Verse: You are controlled by your new nature if you have the Spirit of God living in you . . .  —Romans 8:9 (TLB)

A harnessed horse contributes much more to life than a wild donkey. Energy out of control is dangerous; energy under control is powerful. God does not discipline us to subdue us, but to condition us for a life of usefulness and blessedness. In His wisdom He knows that an uncontrolled life is an unhappy life, so He puts reins on our wayward souls that they may be directed into the “paths of righteousness.”

That is what God seeks to do with us; to tame us, to bring us under proper control, to redirect our energies. He does in the spiritual realm what science does in the physical realm. Science takes a Niagara River with its violent turbulence and transforms it into electrical energy to illuminate a million homes and to turn the productive wheels of industry.

Hear a 1-minute message from Billy Graham on discipline and control.

Prayer for the day
Direct all my energy, Father, so that I may be a blessing to others.

Billy Graham Devotions 25 June 2019 – True Happiness

TODAY’S TOPIC: TRUE HAPPINESS

Key Verse: And the Lord said, Who then is that faithful and wise steward . . .  —Luke 12:42
It is not wrong for men to possess riches. But the Bible warns that money cannot buy happiness! Money cannot buy true pleasure. Money cannot buy peace of heart. And money certainly cannot buy entrance into the Kingdom of God. Often money is a hindrance to these things.

Money takes our minds off God. Riches, when used selfishly rather than for the glory of God, tend to corrupt in our hands. Money cannot be a substitute for God. If God has given you more wealth than your neighbors, dedicate it to Christ. Realize that you are only a steward of that which God has given you and some day you will have to give an account of every penny you have spent. The Internal Revenue Service wants a record of how you spend your money, but that is nothing compared to the books God is keeping.

Browse Q&As on money matters.

Prayer for the day
Father, I would be a faithful steward of all You have given to me. Make me constantly aware of Your leading so I may wisely spend any money with which I have been entrusted.
