I share these daily devotions on FB everyday and people are helped by them. Unlike Paul, I don't believe God has to speak to us verbatim from the King James Bible. And unlike Garee, I don't believe God ONLY speaks to us through the Bible. He can speak to us any way He likes. I serve a LIVING God Who speaks to us today as well as He has always done thoughout history. Those with ears to hear will hear His voice. His sheep hear His voice and another they will not follow. The messages are Scriptural....they simply expound on the Scriptures. These devotions were an answer to my prayers and I don't believe the Lord gives us a scorpion when we ask for a fish!
God bless you
SAVE YOUR BEST STRIVING FOR SEEKING MY FACE
I am constantly communicating with you. To find Me and hear My voice, you must seek Me above all else. Anything that you desire more than Me becomes an idol. When you are determined to get your own way, you blot Me out of your consciousness. Instead of single-mindedly pursuing some goal, talk with Me about it. Let the Light of My Presence shine on this pursuit, so that you can see it from My perspective. If the goal fits into My plans for you, I will help you reach it. If it is contrary to My will for you, I will gradually change the desire of your heart. SEEK ME FIRST and foremost; then the rest of your life will fall into place, piece by piece.
1 Chronicles 16:11 - "Seek the Lord and His strength, seek His Face continually."
Matthew 6:33 - "But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and His righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you."

The Joy of the Spring shall be yours in full measure. Revel in the earth's joy. Do not you think that Nature is weary, too, of her long months of travail? There will come back a wonderful joy, if you share in her joy now.
Nature is the embodied Spirit of My Thoughts of beauty for this world. Treat her as such - as truly My servant and messenger, as any saint who has ever lived. To realize this will bring to you both new life-joy. Share her joys and travails, and great blessings will be yours.
This is all-important, because it is not only believing certain things about Me that helps and heals, but knowing Me, sensing My Presence in a flower, My message in its beauty and perfume.
You can truly live a life not of earth - a heaven-life here and now. Joy - Joy - Joy.
"The flowers appear on the earth; the time of the singing of birds is come, and the voice of the turtle is heard in our land." - Song of Solomon 2:12

Eternal Life gives a youthful resiliency.
Think of My parable of the wine-skins. Those who merely worship Me as a creed are like unto old wine-skins.
They cannot accept new truth, new life. It would destroy, not increase their faith.
Those who have My Gift of Eternal, youth-giving Life have the ever-expanding, revitalizing, joy-quality of that Life.
The new wine poured so freely into new bottles. That bracing wine sustains the many who receive it.
