I am continuing my sharing with you what I am learning from the Lenten study 24 Hours That Changed The World by Adam Hamilton.
“It is in yielding our hearts and lives to God's will that we become a part of his kingdom. Take a moment today to yield your heart and life to God, to seek to do His will in your life:God, I accept you as my King. Help me to know and do your will. May my life bring you glory to your name. Amen.”
“The experience of being betrayed, deserted, and denied by his closest friends–this would produce great sorrow in any man. It was doubly true for Jesus because these were his closest companions, men who had been with him for three years, who saw him work miracles and heard him preach… The very fact that they failed the Lord helps me trust that there is grace yet for me when I deny, desert, and betray him.”
“In the New Testament, “being awake” is a phrase used to describe being spiritually ready, most often for the return of Christ, but also ready to what the Lord needs whenever he needs us. It entails a watchfulness and a way of paying attention to what is happening around us, to the needs of others, and to the direction of the Holy Spirit. We are meant to stay awake and keep watch.”

Begin 2020 by reading a new devotional called The One Year Adventure with The God of Your Story. It follows the scripture readings in Tyndale's The One Year Bible Creative Expression . It is written by Brian Hardin who founded the Daily Audio Bible podcast, in which he shares similar devotional commentary verbally.
For more than 15 years, God has used Experiencing God in His work, showing believers how to know Him intimately while encouraging them to step out in faith and join Him in His work with miraculous results. The revised Member Book has been updated with new illustration and testimonial content that demonstrates how this study contributed to some truly miraculous results.
