"He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all—how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things?" (Romans 8:32 NIV)
Thoughts for Today
Yesterday we read about God providing a substitute sacrifice. He provided a ram to substitute for Abraham's son Isaac. This was a foreshadow of God's ultimate provision. Years later, God would offer his only son, Jesus, as a substitute for each of us.
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. (John 3:16 NIV)
Consider this …
Think about it. God gave his only son to die for us. The ultimate sacrifice. How can we ever doubt his provision in every area of our life? As today's scripture says, "How will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things?"
Father, forgive me for ever doubting your love and provision. Thank you for your ultimate gift, Jesus. Help me never again to doubt you. Help me trust you for my every need. In Jesus' name . . .

The Ten Commandments: Applying the Foundations of Living to My Personal Life by Jimmy Ray Lee, D.Min. Knowing that there are absolutes that define moral conduct and ethical decisions is essential for believers surrounded by relativistic values. This guide helps us understand God's boundaries. It shows how the Ten Commandments apply today. It also discusses the biblical laws on which the legal codes of every civilized society are based. This guide is written in a way that helps people see the Ten Commandments in light of today's problems. Note: This curriculum was written especially for small groups, and we encourage people to use it that way. However, it can also be used effectively as a personal study for individuals or couples.
We hope these devotions are a blessing to you and to others in your life. We are happy to provide them for you at no cost, but thought you might want to consider a donation to help our ministry with the expense involved. You can safely donate through our website . Thank you!
