“..work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.” Philippians 2:12, ESV.
After a few relationship failures in my life, it finally occurred to me what the problem was; I was constantly trying to change people. I didn’t know how to love and accept people just the way they are—flaws and all. When God opened my eyes to how I was behaving, I felt like a huge puddle on the floor. My pride and self-righteous attitude was exposed, and now I had to deal with myself. Don’t let your relationships be ruined because you want people to be more like you.
You can’t change:
• How people feel
• How they respond
• What they think
• What they believe
• How they love
• How they live their life
However, you can change:
• How you feel
• How you respond
• What you think
• What you believe
• How you love
• How you live your life
Don’t spend so much time trying to change people, their feelings, their mind, their moods, their life, or their habits. God didn’t call us to change anyone. That’s His job. We have a hard enough time trying to change our own selves, let alone someone else. Accept people the way they are and let God do the rest. Focus on what you can do, which is work on you. The more someone see your life improving for the better and the more they see you walking in humility, the more they may be inspired to change.
Prayer: Father God, I ask that you kill my pride. Completely crush it. I don’t want anything to do with self-righteousness. I humble myself. I’m nobody apart from you. You reached down and you rescued me from a pit. Any change that’s taken place in my life, you did it. You helped me, and you’re still helping me. You’ve turned my life around. Please forgive me for anytime I didn’t love who you love, or accept who you’ve accepted. Help me Lord. Do what only you can do in the lives of those around me. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

These devotionals are very inspiring. It’s like the one for each days fits my circumstances for that day. I have been truly blessed. I am so blessed that I often share them with a wives whatsapp group that I oversee. Continue to let God speak through you all to speak to us. Blessings above and beyond.
Thanknyou for this. I am praying for wisdom. I teach Bible study and am constantly praying for God to guide me to know how to speak to His people. I dont want to be as if I have it altogether. I teach using myself as an example and how God delivers me.My desire is for Gods people to hear His Word.
Thank you for your encouraging devotionals daily.May God continue to bless you,your families,and your ministry.
Good Morning I thank God for you I agree whole heartily it does seem every post is right on time I know God is speaking through you to me I’m so thankful I really gotta work harder realize only God can change people not I he want me to love as he love Lord help me to have a heart like you see the best in people instead the worst just as God sees the best in me with all my flaws being imperfect God Bless you and your family as you continue to do he work it’s truly a Blessing to me
I agree it’s much better to be filled with love for others, than a critical overview. Pray for Gods peace as we deal with others and to stay focused on how His Mercy endures forever for others and ourselves
This was just for me, I needed this today. Thank you, Amen.

The Redeemer’s Never-Ceasing Intercession
How encouraging is the thought of the Redeemer’s never-ceasing intercession for us. When we pray, He pleads for us; and when we are not praying, He is advocating our cause, and by His supplications shielding us from unseen dangers. Notice the word of comfort addressed to Peter–“Simon, Simon, behold, Satan demanded to have you, that he might sift you like wheat, but” 1–what? “But go and pray for yourself”?
That would be good advice, but it is not so written. Neither does He say, “But I will keep you watchful, and so you shall be preserved.” That would be a great blessing. No, it is, “But I have prayed for you that your faith may not fail.” 2
We little know what we owe to our Savior’s prayers. When we reach the hilltops of heaven and look back upon all the way whereby the Lord our God has led us, how we shall praise Him who, before the eternal throne, undid the mischief that Satan was doing upon earth.
How we shall thank Him because He never held His peace but day and night pointed to the wounds upon His hands and carried our names upon His breastplate! Even before Satan had begun to tempt, Jesus had forestalled him and entered a plea in heaven. Mercy outruns malice. Consider, He does not say, “Satan hath desired to have you.” He checks Satan even in his very desire and nips it in the bud. He does not say, “But I have desired to pray for you.” No, but “I have prayed for you–I have done it already; I have gone to court and entered a counterplea even before an accusation is made.” O Jesus, what a comfort it is that You have pleaded our cause against our unseen enemies; You have unmasked their ambushes. Here is a matter for joy, gratitude, hope, and confidence.
1 Luke 22:31
2 Luke 22:32
We don’t have to worry about changing each other Jesus already knows the plan’s for our life together with whom He places in one’s life Ephesians 3:11-14 I believe yes I feel so blessed!
Thank. You. Jesus. For. Your. Prayer. Thank you. For. Your mercies that never end. The. World. Lies. To us. All the time. You are our latern of thruth. I love you. Diane

I pray that God shows you just how great you are in His Kingdom! Thank you, anne for all of your love and support! It means so very, very much to me!! God bless you from the bottom of my heart. I KNOW that God is using you to bless me and my family. Thank You Jesus for Anne’s friendship and for her sisterhood and for all that she does and has done for me!! She continues to lift me up and pray for your servant, my Lord. I pray that You would bless her tremendously for her faithfulness and loyalty unto me!! God, bless her for her obedience to pray and encourage me!! Set her heart free from all the strongholds that are still there. Set her free completely. Touch her family’s heart. Touch her offender and all of her enemies in a way that they know not to put their evil words or place their malice intent upon her soul anymore!!! Bomb those words of mockery on the battlefield now!!! Build up a warrior’s heart in my sister anne!!! Building up more and more!!! Spiritual muscles getting stronger and stronger!!! Standing in the fire of persecution with the joy of the Lord sustaining us more and more!!! You are more and more in our hearts and lives, my Lord!!! More and more of You and less and less of us, sweet Jesus!!! Your Name is the sweetest Name I know!!! Your love is the only love I know that never hurts me in my weakness!!! Your hands are the only Hands I have known that have never caused me pain in one way or another!!! Your countenance looks upon me in tenderness and love always!!! Your faithfulness has never failed me!!! I believe You protect me from the enemy’s lies!! Sticks and stones may beat and batter these dry bones, but You will protect and revive these dry bones for me and breathe life and love unto my soul that won’t let go of my Beloved’s sovereign hand, no matter what flaming arrow lands on my heart, ears, mind, body, soul, or life. Because He holds up the shield of faith for me while I hold His Hand and hunker down under His Wings! He really is my Everything!!! Sing a song of protection over Anne’s heart, please, sweet Jesus. May no weapon formed against anne prosper in Jesus’ Name I pray. Bless, protect, honor, and promote anne in heart and life. Blanket the pain and strife in the blood!!

Help us behave as You would have us. Help us really be untroubled by troubled waters upon our souls!! Help us really be obedient when it hurts the most!! I really need You in this endeavor for myself unto Your glory. The oppression gets heavier and denser and more purposeful the closer I get to You, Lord! But I won’t let that scare me away!! I have to believe that the opposition has picked up their pace in ambushing my soul, because dawn is approaching and the cover of the darkness that the enemy has depended on so greatly is about to be lifted and the tricks of the enemy will be bleeding out before the world’s eyes on the battlefield of love!! Thank You, my Jesus, most of all, for all the love and safety You give me!! I love being safe in Your loving embrace and held in Your sovereign hand. Your Love is everlasting!!! From glory to glory, You reveal Your Truth to me in magnificent wonder!!! Hallelujah!! Jesus reigns!! He is the same, yesterday, and tomorrow!!! Forevermore, He stays the same!!! He can not change!!!

The enemy’s plot is dead!!! Bang!! Bang!! The enemy’s plan over your life has been canceled, sweet anne! The plot to harm and derail you has been stolen from the enemy, destroyed and his hold on you has been killed and defeated, once and for all, on this battlefield we stand on!!! Praise the Lord!!!

Thank you God, for helping me to accept people for who they are. I Jesus Name AMEN
I might be guilty of that,not intentionally . I know I’ve always tried to encourage people in their struggles,or when they r feeling down .Although I do agree with the devotional concerning working out our own soul salvation with fear and trembling, that is a reminder that I really needed to hear.I have expressed how I’m feeling deeply hurt from people that showed direct hatred towards me .I’m having a hard time with this thing especially not ever running in their circle ,I am challenge with accepting anything that people dish out!Do I really have to do that?,I can’t lie about it.By no means do i think i have arrived because I know God still has plenty of work to do on me and thats why i try my best to be mindful of how i act.The Holy Spirit convicts me quick!I thank God for that!but you know only God knows the matters of my heart and I know that He alone will heal me because He hears my prayers.If any pride is in me please God let it show up and help me address it,if any self righteous is in me ,let me see it that I may deal with it.Help sooth this hurt in me so I can breath a little easier. Help me love as u love,even my enemies, and see as you see.I want to do better and I want to live right!In Jesus Name!! I like that sis what grandma said!That’s a keeper!Prayer changes things and if they don’t change I will!!!!This devotional makes me want to focus more .DOTK thank you.
Amen and amen to Bridget B’s prayer for me. Amen and amen again. I am under heavy persecution and abuse in my own life, Bridget B, from every person I am close to. None of my loved ones are walking my walk in salvation and grace and I am heavily attacked by the enemy through my own family. It hurts tremendously, and I still don’t get it right every time, but I get it right more times than I used to now. By getting it right, I mean being truly humble. This has been a wretchedly painful process, having my pride and defense mechanisms stripped from me. But, my sister, I am learning that I like His defense mechanisms better. I pray that God breaks the strongholds on Your heart and life. I pray that He gives you the much needed all sufficient grace needed to walk the road of persecution. I walk it with you, my sister. God bless you and I pray that we will keep our heads together! Let’s call out to the Lord, with our broken hearts and ask God to defend our tender hearts! He is faithful!! I don’t know about you, but only He could have made my heart tender, so I am desiring greatly to be tender and gentle and compassionate and kind and patient unto the best of my ability in my present state. His grace has proven to be my breakthrough. I find that my obedience today produces the grace needed for my tomorrows.God just works it out that way for His glory!! Glory to God!!! I love His love the best and so much more when I see that He is the only one loving on me and defending me and remembering me and speaking encouragement and purpose and value in my spiritual ear. I see how truly loving and faithful He is, when I look around and He is the only One I see!!! Hallelujah!!! Bless Bridget B!!! Bless her heart, body and soul more and more until she isn’t phased by the cruelness of the world!! Help her love the loveless. Help her touch the untouchable, without their filth or sinfulness laying ahold of her heart and soul. Help her keep her heart pure when it hurts the most!!! Jesus, hold her close when she hurts the most!!! When the words sting to the marrow of her own soul, help her drop her pain and tears and let go and let God. I trust that You will for my friend and sister Bridget B!! God called me to pray for you, so pray with me Bridget B!!! He is rising from our ashes in beauty!!! Yes, Lord, give us more and more of You and less and less of us, sweet Jesus!!! Help us love others the way You love us, Blessed King!!! Hallelujah!!! We lift Your Name above the haze of persecution and abusive words and ridiculing glances and mocking stances!!! We are not held up by the enemy’s lies!!! No way!!! We are held up in the Sovereign hand of the Lord and His Name is Truth!!! His Name bleeds Truth!!! The Truth is written on His scars!!! We walk and talk and look and behave like the Truth!!! The Light shall light the truth up in our heart!!! Set a fire in our soul that consumes all pride!!! Make our love a love that defies the logic of the world!!! Let us touch the filth and disease and pain and suffering of the world and come out unscathed, yet our enemies shall be bathed in holiness in their own darkness!!! Hallelujah!!! You speak right to my heart, my Lord. Help me and Bridget B make it off this battlefield in sweet victory, hand in Hand with the God of Sovereign Plans!! Grant us patience and longsuffering to endure the race and carry our cross with a smile. God, blow Bridget away with Your love so that it doesn’t hurt so much when the world and those she loves hurts her most. Heal snd restore her heart and soul, mind and body, life and circumstances completely unto a providential end. God grant us patience to see this through with You, on this battlefield of love!!! Thank You, Jesus, for loving me first!!! Hallelujah!!! God bless King Jesus!!! Jesus in Your Name I pray. Amen and amen.

I thank you for your son Jesus Christ my Savior who saved a wretch like me.

As your daughter, I am thankful that I can see wrong in my life past
Where You Jesus help me find truth and set me Free.

I love others as you would
Thankful I am ,

Your Love Is sufficient
Your promises are true
I stand in awe of you Lord Jesus
I Love you because you first loved me and have showed me how to love others
Amen and Amen
Beautiful Sandra… Amen and amen and amen.
Teach me your way and how to be a better person instead trying to change people and learn to accept people for who they’re. Lord help not act on my own behalf but rather to seek your guidance in doing so. In Jesus Name, Amen 🙇
Amen and amen.
