Dr. David Miller, Philippians 1:21 Devotional

Philippians 1:21 – For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain. When boiled down, this is the essence of the Christian life. Let’s be blunt here; Jesus’ disciples were not fishermen during the day and followers of Christ on Sunday mornings and Wednesday nights. They did not retain their old lives and add Jesus to the open slots that He fit into. No, they walked away from their professions and rearranged their lives so that Jesus…

Dr. David Miller, Deuteronomy 10:17 Devotional

Deuteronomy 10:17 – For the Lord your God is the God of gods and the Lord of lords, the great, the mighty, and the awesome God who does not show partiality nor take a bribe. How amazing is that!? He is an awesome God! I would strongly encourage you to choose carefully how you use the word “awesome” from here on. In Scripture, the term is only used when speaking of God or something that He has done. Depending on your translation, it is used…

Dr. David Miller, 1 Samuel 2:12 Devotional

1 Samuel 2:12 – Now the sons of Eli were worthless men; they did not know the Lord This is quite a difficult statement to be made of a man’s sons. These boys were not just average citizens though, the sons of Eli (Hophni and Phinehas) were priests of the Lord. They likely got their position due to their father’s influence, but they “did not know the Lord.” That may seem unusual to think a church leader would not know God, but…

Dr. David Miller, Joel 2:25 Devotional

Joel 2:25 – Then I will make up to you for the years that the swarming locust has eaten, the creeping locust, the stripping locust and the gnawing locust, my great army which I sent among you. What God tells His people here is that things can and will get bad, but He is always in control. Also, He points out that He will restore our hearts from the damage caused by the world. Whether you are a follower of Christ…

Dr. David Miller, John 20:27 Devotional

John 20:27 – Then He said to Thomas, “Reach here with your finger, and see My hands; and reach here your hand and put it into My side; and do not be unbelieving, but believing.” Thomas wanted to see the risen body (and wounds) of Christ as evidence of the miraculous resurrection. We often call him ‘Doubting Thomas’ today. I dislike that moniker. The fact is it’s not fair. Thomas didn’t question the resurrection any more than the rest of us,…

Dr. David Miller, Proverbs 13:3 Devotional

Proverbs 13:3 – The one who guards his mouth preserves his life; the one who opens wide his lips comes to ruin. A lot of people need this advice in our social media-run world right now. Just because you have an opinion does not mean you need to share it. Honestly, in many cases, voicing your opinion can cause hurt, unrest, insult, and anger among your friends and family. That is not to say your opinion cannot be expressed; it just needs to…

Dr. David Miller, Deuteronomy 25:4 Devotional

Deuteronomy 25:4 – Do not muzzle an ox while it is treading out the grain. In many ways, this verse has become a pretty well-known axiom in our society. It is often used by followers/employees who want to justify their desire for selfish gain. They use it to suggest that stealing is okay. They say everyone takes home a few office supplies here and there. Or, what is the big deal if I use some of my work time for…

Dr. David Miller, Romans 5:8 Devotional

Romans 5:8 – But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. What AMAZING news! Yes, it is that simple. And some of you need to hear this today. You do not need to impress God with your efforts, or your personality, or your deep long-winded prayers. He chose you, sought you out, and offered you salvation through grace while you were still a sinner. It is similar to the idea of proposing…

Dr. David Miller, Lamentations 3:27 Devotional

Lamentations 3:27 – It is good for a man that he should bear the yoke in his youth. Hard work is a lost art. Although “bear the yoke” doesn’t always mean getting your hands dirty, it is an excellent start. Hard work develops character and appreciation for others. Try it. You will be surprised how good it feels to sweat and grow tired and then do it some more until the job is finished. Volunteer with a landscaping crew or a…

Dr. David Miller, Zephaniah 1:18 Devotional

Zephaniah 1:18 – The sum of Your word is truth, and every one of Your righteous ordinances is everlasting. It is easy to say we trust God and it is easy to say we trust every word God says. But saying something and living a life that reflects those things is quite different. Does your life reflect the truth of Scripture? Read a biography of George Müller, he led a life of absolute trust and conviction. Read about Keith Green…
