The Good Seed Daily Devotional for Wednesday, September 23, 2020
by GBV Dillenburg GmbH

Amalek came and fought with Israel in Rephidim. And Moses said, … I will stand on the top of the hill with the rod of God in my hand.
Exodus 17:8.9

Amalek – a malicious enemy
The Amalekites attacked the people of Israel in the wilderness. They struck when the people were exhausted. Moreover, they had the rear ranks and all the stragglers particularly in view (cf. Deuteronomy 25:17.18).

Applying this to ourselves, it means that Satan knows our weak points, where we are easily vulnerable. Are you inclined to strive after riches or fame? Have you a weakness for the opposite sex? Then take care: that is where Satan is most likely to break through!

One thing makes the matter extremely dangerous: Satan has an ally – our old nature, which is just waiting to succeed in what our enemy has in mind.

In everyday life there are always moments when we are physically or mentally weary. If our power to resist has been weakened, Satan will endeavour to tempt us to sin. When we are tired we easily react angrily. If we have suffered a disappointment, we are more liable to be enticed to sin. And danger really threatens, if we have got away from the Lord Jesus and are following Him only at a distance.

Let us therefore maintain our fellowship with our Lord by reading the Bible and praying regularly. That will increase our power to resist the hostile attacks. And let us not forget that, just as Moses was on the mountain praying incessantly for Israel on that occasion, so, too, Jesus Christ intercedes for us in heaven. That is a great help in our struggle against the enemy.

Today’s reading: Judges 16:1-12 · Psalm 73:1-8

The Good Seed Daily Devotional for Wednesday, August 12, 2020
by GBV Dillenburg GmbH

The Levites … shall carry the tabernacle and all its furnishings; they shall attend to it and camp around the tabernacle.
Numbers 1:50

The tribe of Levi enjoyed a privileged position among the people of Israel. God had sanctified them for Himself, selecting them from the nation for His service. They were responsible for the tabernacle, God’s dwelling among His people. The people always had to take this tent, which could be dismantled, with them on the wilderness journey. One of the most important tasks of the Levites was to carry the dwelling place and all its furnishings.

Today it is the church (the assembly) that is the house of God – His testimony on earth (1 Timothy 3:15). Just like Israel, the church, i.e. the entire company of all born again Christians, is still on its journey of some two thousand years. Eternity in glory with the Lord still lies ahead of us. On this “wilderness journey” we are called upon to bear witness for God. Every believer is, so to speak, a Levite, even you. Are you one of the bearers?

The tribe of Levi comprised three large families:

The Gershonites carried the tent, the coverings and the curtains. - We must see to it that our conduct is in agreement with the Word of God. It is a question of the spiritual state of the church.
The sons of Merari carried the boards, pillars and their sockets. How important it is to uphold the principles that God has laid down in His Word for His church and their gatherings!
The Kohathites carried the smaller items of the equipment. These depict the Person of the Lord Jesus Himself. Let us hold fast both Him and the truth regarding His Person.
Nor should we overlook anything, but faithfully uphold God’s dwelling on our journey to our promised land above.

Today’s reading: Joshua 13:1-14 · 1 Corinthians 11:1-19

A Wide, Sweeping Grace

Bible in a Year: Psalms 31–3, Acts 23:16–35

I have swept away your offenses.
Isaiah 44:22

Today's Scripture & Insight: Isaiah 44:21–23

Alexa, Amazon’s voice-controlled device, has an interesting feature: it can erase everything you say. Whatever you’ve asked Alexa to do, whatever information you’ve asked Alexa to retrieve, one simple sentence (“Delete everything I said today”) sweeps it all clean, as if it never happened. It’s too bad that the rest of our life doesn’t have this capability. Every misspoken word, every disgraceful act, every moment we wish we could erase—we’d just speak the command, and the entire mess would disappear.

There’s good news, though. God does offer each of us a clean start. Only, He goes far deeper than merely deleting our mistakes or bad behavior. God provides redemption, a deep healing that transforms us and makes us new. “Return to me,” He says, “I have redeemed you” (Isaiah 44:22). Even though Israel rebelled and disobeyed, God reached out to them with lavish mercy. He “swept away [their] offenses like a cloud, [their] sins like the morning mist” (v. 22). He gathered all their shame and failures and washed them away with His wide, sweeping grace.

God will do the same with our sin and blunders. There’s no mistake He can’t mend, no wound He can’t heal. God’s mercy heals and redeems the most painful places in our soul—even the ones we’ve hidden for so very long. His mercy sweeps away all our guilt, washes away every regret.

By: Winn Collier

Reflect & Pray
Where are you most aware of your failures? How does the image of God sweeping away all your mistakes give you hope?

So many regrets, so many things I’d do differently. God, You tell me that You can forgive and heal me. Thank You for Your mercy and grace.

In Need of Rescue

Bible in a Year: 2 Chronicles 28–29, John 17

A Samaritan, as he traveled, came where the man was; and when he saw him, he took pity on him.
Luke 10:33

Today's Scripture & Insight: Luke 10:30–37

A teenager named Aldi was working alone on a fishing hut anchored about 125 kilometers (about 78 miles) off Indonesia’s Sulawesi Island when heavy winds knocked the hut off its mooring and sent it out to sea. For forty-nine days, Aldi drifted in the ocean. Every time he spotted a ship, he turned on his lamp to try and get the sailors’ attention, only to be disappointed. About ten ships passed the malnourished teen before he was rescued.

Jesus told a parable to an “expert in the law” (Luke 10:25) about someone who needed to be rescued. Two men—a priest and a Levite—saw an injured man as they were traveling. But rather than help him, both “passed by on the other side” (vv. 31–32). We aren’t told why. Both were religious men and would have been familiar with God’s law to love their neighbor (Leviticus 19:17–18). They may have thought it was too dangerous. Or perhaps they didn’t want to break Jewish laws about touching dead bodies, making them ceremonially unclean and unable to serve in the temple. In contrast, a Samaritan—who was despised by the Jews—acted nobly. He saw the man in need and selflessly took care of him.

Jesus wrapped up His teaching with the command that His followers should “go and do likewise” (Luke 10:37). May God give us the willingness to risk reaching out in love to help others.

By: Poh Fang Chia

Reflect & Pray
Who has Jesus put in your path that needs your help? How can you put your love into action today?

God, open my eyes to the needs around me and give me Your heart of compassion for others.

Eclipse

Bible in a Year: 1 Kings 16–18, Luke 22:47–71

I will restore David’s fallen shelter—I will repair its broken walls and restore its ruins—and will rebuild it as it used to be.
Amos 9:11

Today's Scripture & Insight: Amos 8:9–12; 9:11–12

I was prepared with eye protection, an ideal viewing location, and homemade moon pie desserts. Along with millions of people in the US, my family watched the rare occurrence of a total solar eclipse—the moon covering the entire disk of the sun.

The eclipse caused an unusual darkness to come over the typically bright summer afternoon. Although for us this eclipse was a fun celebration and a reminder of God’s incredible power over creation (Psalm 135:6–7), throughout history darkness during the day has been seen as abnormal and foreboding (Exodus 10:21; Matthew 27:45), a sign that everything is not as it should be.

This is what darkness signified for Amos, a prophet during the time of the divided monarchy in ancient Israel. Amos warned the Northern Kingdom that destruction would come if they continued to turn away from God. As a sign, God would “make the sun go down at noon and darken the earth in broad daylight” (Amos 8:9).

But God’s ultimate desire and purpose was—and is—to make all things right. Even when the people were taken into exile, God promised to one day bring a remnant back to Jerusalem and “repair its broken walls and restore its ruins” (9:11).

Even when life is at its darkest, like Israel, we can find comfort in knowing God is at work to bring light and hope back—to all people (Acts 15:14–18).

By: Lisa M. Samra

Reflect & Pray
When was a time you chose to reject or disobey God? How did God provide rescue and bring light into your dark situation?

Jesus, as we read in Revelation 21:23, thank You that You shine brighter than the sun and turn back the darkness.

The Good Seed Daily Devotional for Tuesday, April 21, 2020
by GBV Dillenburg GmbH

I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek.There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus.
Romans 1:16; Galatians 3:28

In 1932 two Christians undertook a long journey through the Libyan desert. It took them from the north-west of Sudan through Egypt to the far east of Libya. A caravan of fourteen camels transported their luggage: food, indispensable water and a precious freight of Bibles and new Testaments in Arabic.

These messengers of the gospel had just reached the oasis of Siva, when a sheik approached them and scrutinised one of them. Did he perhaps know them? And did he want to prevent Bibles being offered in the oasis?

The Arab then addressed the Christian: “May I ask you a question? Aren’t you the man who sells books?” – “Yes, I am. But I do not know you.” – “Weren’t you in the oasis of Kharga? Perhaps you remember the bookshop there and the sheik who bought parts of the Bible from you. I am that man. I have read these tracts so often that I know them by heart.”

The two then spoke about the Word of God and Jesus Christ for quite a long time. Two years later the colporteur received a letter from that Arab that began with the words: “My brother in Christ”!

Since then 88 years have passed, but the gospel has lost nothing of its power. It can still change a person’s heart and life thoroughly

Inheritance Isn’t Earned

Bible in a Year: Judges 11–12, Luke 6:1–26

He predestined us for adoption to sonship through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will.
Ephesians 1:5

Today's Scripture & Insight: Ephesians 1:3–14

“Thanks for dinner, Dad,” I said as I set my napkin on the restaurant table. I was home on a break from college and, after being gone for a while, it felt strange to have my parents pay for me. “You’re welcome, Julie,” my dad replied, “but you don’t have to thank me for everything all the time. I know you’ve been off on your own, but you’re still my daughter and a part of the family.” I smiled. “Thanks, Dad.”

In my family, I haven’t done anything to earn my parents’ love or what they do for me. But my dad’s comment reminds me that I haven’t done anything to deserve to be a part of God’s family either.

In the book of Ephesians, Paul tells his readers that God chose them “to be holy and blameless in his sight” (1:4), or to stand without blemish before Him (5:25–27). But this is only possible through Jesus, in whom “we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace” (1:7). We don’t have to earn God’s grace, forgiveness, or entrance into His family. We simply accept His free gift.

When we turn our lives over to Jesus, we become children of God, which means we receive eternal life and have an inheritance waiting for us in heaven. Praise God for offering such a wonderful gift!

By: Julie Schwab

Reflect & Pray
In what ways do you feel or act as if you have to earn God’s love? How can you practice living in the freedom of His love?

Faithful God, thank You for freely giving Your Son so I can be a part of Your family. Help me to honor You in all You’ve done for me.

Liberated by Jesus

Bible in a Year: Numbers 9–11, Mark 5:1–20

[He] began to tell . . . how much Jesus had done for him.
Mark 5:20

Today's Scripture & Insight: Mark 5:1–20

“I lived with my mother so long that she moved out!” Those were the words of KC, whose life before sobriety and surrender to Jesus was not pretty. He candidly admits supporting his drug habit by stealing—even from loved ones. That life is behind him now and he rehearses this by noting the years, months, and days he’s been clean. When KC and I regularly sit down to study God’s Word together, l’m looking at a changed man.

Mark 5:15 speaks of a former demon-possessed individual who had also been changed. Prior to his healing, helpless, hopeless, homeless, and desperate are words that fit the man (vv. 3–5). But all of that changed after Jesus liberated him (v. 13). But, as with KC, his life before Jesus was far from normal. His internal turmoil that he expressed externally is not unlike what people experience today. Some hurting people dwell in abandoned buildings, vehicles, or other places; some live in their own homes but are emotionally alone. Invisible chains shackle hearts and minds to the point that they distance themselves from others.

In Jesus, we have the One who can be trusted with our pain and the shame of the past and present. And, as with Legion and KC, He waits with open arms of mercy for all who run to Him today (v. 19).

By: Arthur Jackson

Reflect & Pray
How has Jesus changed you? Who do you know that needs to hear about it?

God, I’m so grateful that, through Jesus, things that controlled me in the past can indeed remain in the past.

A fresh start
MaIf anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.
2 Corinthians 5:17

A fresh start
Many people are haunted by their past. They cannot get over disappointments and plague themselves with reproaches. During sleepless nights they constantly think: “If only I hadn’t done such a stupid thing! Why ever did I get involved in that? If only I could make a fresh start!”

Have you ever reached this conclusion? Then we have some good news for you. With Jesus Christ you can put an end to your past and make a fresh start.

He offers you the forgiveness of your sins. If you sincerely confess all that you have done wrong, He will relieve you of the burden of your guilt. Simply believe that on the cross He bore the punishment of all your wrongdoing. In this way your past will be put in order before God and your conscience relieved.

Jesus Christ is ready and willing to grant you new life. He said Himself: “I have come that they might have life” (John 10; 10). On another occasion He declared: “He who believes in me has everlasting life” (John 6; 47). Open your heart to receive the Lord Jesus and put your faith in Him! That will change your life fundamentally.

You will then live in a happy relationship with Jesus Christ and have a hope going beyond death. He promises you: “He who believes in me, though may die, he shall live” (John 11; 25).
