Excellent. Short but powerful devotionals, worth listening to over and over again.

Prayer for Repentance from Arrogance
I’m wondering if you’d be willing to join me in a prayer of repentance—repentance from arrogance.  What have we done that God didn’t first do?  What do we have that God didn’t first give us?  Have any of us ever built anything that God could not destroy?  Have we created any monument that the Master of the stars can’t reduce to dust? God asked this question through the Prophet Isaiah: “To whom will you compare me?  Or who is my equal?  says the Holy One. Lift up your eyes and look to the heavens:  Who created all these? He who … Listen Now

Why God Hates Pride
Do you see a person wise in their own eyes?  There is more hope for a fool than for them” (Proverbs 26:12).  God hates pride.  How do we explain God’s abhorrence of the haughty heart?  Simple.  God resists the proud because the proud resist God.  Arrogance will not admit to sin. The heart of pride never confesses, never repents, never asks for forgiveness.  Pride is the hidden reef that shipwrecks the soul. Pride comes at a high price.  Don’t pay it.  Choose instead to stand on the offer of grace.  “God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble” … Listen Now

When You Speak, God Listens
You may find yourself in an impossible situation; outnumbered and outmaneuvered.  You want to quit.  Could I implore you to memorize this promise and ask God to bring it to mind?  Write it where you’ll find it.  Tattoo it, if not on your skin, at least on your heart…“When a believing person prays, great things happen” (James 5:16). If you’ve taken on the name of Christ, you have clout with the most powerful being in the universe.  When you speak, God listens.  Jesus said, “When two of you get together on anything at all on earth and make a prayer … Listen Now

Prayers Matter to God
God delights in hearing your prayers!  We can’t even get the plumber to call us back, so why would God listen to our prayers?  Your prayers matter to God because you matter to God.  You aren’t just anybody, you are his child. When God saved you, he enlisted you.  He gave not only forgiveness for your past but also authority in the present and a role in the future.  This life is on-the-job training for eternity.  “If we endure, we will also reign with him” (2 Timothy 2:12). When you, as God’s child, seek to honor the family business, God … Listen Now

When You Face a Wall of Fear
Perhaps standing before you is a wall of fear.  Brick upon brick of anxiety and dread. Haunting you are the kings of confusion.  Thanks to them, you’ve struggled with your identity and destiny.  You’ve bought the lie that life has no absolutes or purpose.  As a child of God, it comes down to a simple decision to believe and receive your position as an heir of God and coheir with Christ. “In this world we are like Jesus” (1 John 4:17).  Our inheritance is every bit as abundant as that of Jesus himself.  What he receives, we receive.  What message … Listen Now

Do You Choose Inheritance or Circumstances?
One of the most famous stories in the Bible has to do with inheritance.  The Hebrews had just been delivered from Egyptian captivity.  God led them and Moses to the edge of the promised land and made this offer:  “Send some men to explore the land of Canaan, which I am giving to the Israelites.  From each ancestral tribe send one of its leaders” (Numbers 13:1-2). God didn’t tell the Israelites to conquer, invade, or secure the land.  No, He told them he was giving it to them.  Their choice was clear–  promises or circumstances?  The circumstances said,  “No way…stay … Listen Now

Live Adventurously Expectant
As a child of God, this resurrection life you received from God is not a timid, grave-tending life.  It’s adventurously expectant, greeting God with a childlike, ‘What’s next, Papa?’  God’s Spirit touches our spirits and confirms who we really are.  We know who he is, and we know who we are:  Father and children.  And we know we are going to get an unbelievable inheritance!” (Romans 8:15-17 MSG). God says, “Hey, Lucado.  You are an heir to the joy of Christ.  Why not ask Jesus to help you?”  “And you, Mr. Without-a-Clue, aren’t you an heir to God’s storehouse of … Listen Now

Heirs of God and Co-Heirs With Christ
After spending the better part of an hour reciting the woes of my life to my wife, Denalyn interrupted me with a question.  “Is God in this anywhere?”  I hate it when she does that.  What had happened to me?  I was focusing on my resources.  I wasn’t consulting God.  I’d limited my world to my strength, my wisdom, and my power.  No wonder I was in a tailspin!  For such moments God gives this promise:  “We are heirs—heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ” (Romans 8:17). The cronies of dismay, gloom and rejection have no answer for the promise … Listen Now

You Have a Spiritual Inheritance
Let’s talk about your inheritance!  As a child of God, you have one, you know.  You aren’t merely a slave, servant, or saint of God. No, you have legal right to the family business and fortune of heaven.  The will has been executed.  The courts have been satisfied.  Your spiritual account has been funded.  He “has blessed you with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places” (Ephesians 1:3). Need more patience?  It’s yours.  Need more joy?  Request it.  Running low on wisdom?  God has plenty.  You will never exhaust his resources.  At no time does he wave away your prayer with … Listen Now

Our Conflict is With Satan
Make no mistake… the devil is a real devil!  Every conflict is a contest with Satan and his forces.  For that reason, the Bible says, “though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh.  For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds” (2 Corinthians 10:3-4). What are these weapons?  Prayer, worship, and Scripture.  When we pray, we engage the power of God against the devil.  When we worship, we do what Satan did not do.  We place God on the throne.  When we pick up the … Listen Now
