and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. Matthew 6:33 (NKJV)


International Church daily devotional,  September 2017

September 1
"Seeing it is one God, which shall justify the circumcision by faith, and uncircumcision through faith" (Romans 3:30).
The only way to gain God's approval is to operate by faith, and not by works.

September 2
"Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations" (Jeremiah 1:5).
Don't ever fall for the devil's lie that you don't have a purpose. God has a plan for your life. Before you were even conceived in your mother's womb, He predestined your life to follow a particular path.

September 3
"He forgives all my sins and heals all my diseases" (Psalm 103:3, NLT).
No matter what you have done in your life, when you ask God to forgive you, He'll never bring it up again. Only the devil does that, so don't walk around in condemnation once you have repented for your sins. Be free in Christ!

September 4
"Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ…" (2 Corinthians 2:14).
It is the anointing inside of you that enables you to be a conqueror over the enemy's assaults. "Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ…" (2 Corinthians 2:14).

September 5
"But let it be the inward adorning and beauty of the hidden person of the heart, with the incorruptible and unfading charm of a gentle and peaceful spirit, which [is not anxious or wrought up, but] is very precious in the sight of God" (1 Peter 3:4, AMP).
The more you reflect God and godliness, the more you will radiate His beauty. While you should maintain your outer appearance, it is what is on the inside that counts.

September 6
"You will guide me with your counsel, and afterward receive me to honor and glory" (Psalm 73:24, AMP).
God's Word will continually guide you in life. The Bible is the only reliable source for instruction.

September 7
"He that committeth sin is of the devil; for devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil" (1 John 3:8).
When you become born again, you are no longer the devil's property. Therefore, you are no longer under the jurisdiction of sin and death; you don't have to sin if you don't want to. Jesus has destroyed sin's power over your life, so walk in freedom today!

September 8
"Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets" (Matthew 7:12).
Treat others the way you want to be treated. When you do, you are walking in the love of God.

September 9
"Keep and guard your heart with all vigilance and above all that you guard, for out of it flow the springs of life" (Proverbs 4:23, AMP).
To guard your heart means to protect your spirit from all unclean influences. This means discerning what you look at, listen to, and talk about. When you do, your life will reflect God and His Word.

September 10
"Do not spread slanderous gossip among your people" (Leviticus 19:16, NLT).
Gossip is a sin of the mouth and is forbidden by God. Believers should not engage in it.

September 11
"Wherefore receive ye one another, as Christ also received us to the glory of God" (Romans 15:7).
Seek to edify and strengthen your neighbor in faith. Ask about their well-being and offer to help when they have a need. As you do, the Body of Christ will continue to reflect the light of God's love to others.

September 12
"And when he had made a scourge of small cords, he drove them all out of the temple, and the sheep, and the oxen; and poured out the changers' money, and overthrew the tables; And said unto them that sold doves, Take these things hence; make not my Father's house an house of merchandise" (John 2:15-16).
Jesus got angry, but the Bible says that He never sinned. His anger propelled Him to an act of righteousness. Let yours do the same.

September 13
"And if you belong to Christ [are in Him Who is Abraham's Seed], then you are Abraham's offspring and [spiritual] heirs according to promise" (Galatians 3:29, AMP).
Belonging to Christ means that you are an heir to God's promise of total life prosperity and salvation.

September 14
"Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path" (Psalm 119:105, NASB).
The Word is the only thing that is qualified to guide you in life. It is infallible and will never steer you wrong; that's a guarantee.

September 15
"I have set the Lord continually before me; because He is at my right hand, I shall not be moved" (Psalm 16:8, AMP).
When you are planted in God's Word, nothing can move you; not even the attacks of the enemy.

September 16
"…the joy of the Lord is your strength" (Nehemiah 8:10).
You get strength from what you know from God's Word. That knowledge will empower you to get through the hard times in your life.

September 17
"Desire without knowledge is not good, and to be overhasty is to sin and miss the mark" (Proverbs 19:2, AMP).
When you move too quickly without having adequate information, you set yourself up for disaster. Instead of rushing ahead of God, seek Him in everything you do.

September 18
"Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you" (1 Peter 5:7).
When you give your cares to God in your mind and in your heart, you allow Him to reveal His power in your situation. Refuse to worry about the outcome and God will always deliver you.

September 19
"Likewise, I say unto you, there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner that repenteth" (Luke 15:10).
Never downplay the impact of soul-winning. God rejoices when even one sinner accepts Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.

September 20
"Praise the Lord; for the Lord is good: sing praises unto his name; for it is pleasant" (Psalm 135:3).
Regardless of your personal circumstances, you always have a reason to celebrate; God is good!

September 21
"And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me" (Luke 9:23).
Being a Christian means dying daily to your flesh and the things of this world for the sake of fulfilling God's will in the earth. That is what it means to deny yourself and take up your cross.

September 22
"Praising God, and having favour with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved" (Acts 2:47).
A sign of the anointing being present is increase. Like the early church grew daily because of the power of God, your life should show visible signs of consistent increase as well.

September 23
"And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it" (Matthew 16:18).
It is your revelation of Jesus and the anointing that position you for victory in life. He always causes you to triumph when you know the power that resides in your spirit.

September 24
"And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. And it repented the Lord that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart" (Genesis 6:5-6).
Evil and wickedness disappoint God, but holiness, purity and faith are pleasing to Him.

September 25
"Do not complain, brethren, against one another, so that you [yourselves] may not be judged. Look! The Judge is [already] standing at the very door" (James 5:9, AMP).
When you complain about other Believers, you are complaining against God and His Word. Your brothers and sisters are a part of the Body of Christ. Don't set yourself up to be judged by God by judging other people. Instead, focus on loving them by edifying and strengthening them in their walk with God.

September 26
"If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men" (Romans 12:18).
Do everything in your power to be at peace with others. Purpose to walk in the love of God and He will bless you.

September 27
"Out of the depths have I cried unto thee, O Lord. Lord, hear my voice: let thine ears be attentive to the voice of my supplications" (Psalm 130:1-2).
When you reach the end of your rope, call on God. He is always ready to hear and answer you.

September 28
"The way of a fool is right in his own eyes: but he that hearkeneth unto counsel is wise" (Proverbs 12:15).
Take heed to godly counsel. It could save your life.

September 29
"The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised…" (Luke 4:18).
If you are experiencing depression or oppression of any kind, go to the Word for help. Jesus has promised deliverance to those who put their trust in Him. Meditate and confess His promise to set you free from the enemy's bondage until the burden is lifted.

September 30
"Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that ye should obey the lusts thereof" (Romans 6:12).
When you become born again, you are no longer under the dominion of sin. It is up to you to discipline your mind so that it will line up with your born-again spirit.
