Christ Unite Daily Devotional Verse
18 October 2018   Isaiah 55:6-13 (NIV)

6Seek the Lord while he may be found; call on him while he is near.

7Let the wicked forsake his way and the evil man his thoughts. Let him turn to the Lord , and he will have mercy on him, and to our God, for he will freely pardon.

8"For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways," declares the Lord .

9"As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.

10As the rain and the snow come down from heaven, and do not return to it without watering the earth and making it bud and flourish, so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater,

11so is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.

12You will go out in joy and be led forth in peace; the mountains and hills will burst into song before you, and all the trees of the field will clap their hands.

13Instead of the thornbush will grow the pine tree, and instead of briers the myrtle will grow. This will be for the Lord 's renown, for an everlasting sign, which will not be destroyed."

 

 

Psalm 65 (NIV)

1Praise awaits you, O God, in Zion; to you our vows will be fulfilled.

2O you who hear prayer, to you all men will come.

3When we were overwhelmed by sins, you forgave our transgressions.

4Blessed are those you choose and bring near to live in your courts! We are filled with the good things of your house, of your holy temple.

5You answer us with awesome deeds of righteousness, O God our Savior, the hope of all the ends of the earth and of the farthest seas,

6who formed the mountains by your power, having armed yourself with strength,

7who stilled the roaring of the seas, the roaring of their waves, and the turmoil of the nations.

8Those living far away fear your wonders; where morning dawns and evening fades you call forth songs of joy.

9You care for the land and water it; you enrich it abundantly. The streams of God are filled with water to provide the people with grain, for so you have ordained it.

10You drench its furrows and level its ridges; you soften it with showers and bless its crops.

11You crown the year with your bounty, and your carts overflow with abundance.

12The grasslands of the desert overflow; the hills are clothed with gladness.

13The meadows are covered with flocks and the valleys are mantled with grain; they shout for joy and sing.

 

2 Corinthians 9:8 (NIV)

And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.
