December Devotional: Keeping the Faith

Scripture of the week: “Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.”  Matthew 4:4

Devotional Thought: In life, it gets hectic and chaotic and our faith can easily be put to the side. We may have a hard time keeping our faith through the hard times and we often say to ourselves “I’ve got this.” The scripture in Matthew clearly states that we shall not live by bread alone but by the word of God, therefore we need to always remember to keep our faith strong and instead say “With God, I’ve got this.” 

Thought/Action Point: There are many ways to keep your faith. Here are a few ideas: Read his word every day, go to church and have fellowship. Most importantly, talk to God and pray. God truly listens to our prayers. The next  time you feel like saying “I’ve got this.” remember to keep your faith strong and centered and say “With God, I’ve got this.”
Prayer: Heavenly Father, Help us to keep our minds focused on you and our faith in you strong. Life will give us temptations but remind us that we shall not live by bread alone, but by your word. Give us a clear mind as we enter the month of December and to remember the true reason for the season which is you. In your name, we pray, Amen
