Devotional Guide, Today’s Reading – Sunday, August 9, 2020


Text: “Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.” – Philippians 4:6, 7.

Comment: We should not worry unduly or fear for tomorrow but  think positively knowing that as long as we continue to do what is right in the sight of God, things will turn out right according to the will of God by His grace. “For he that will love life, and see good days, let him refrain his tongue from evil, and his lips that they speak no guile: Let him eschew evil, and do good; let him seek peace, and ensue it. For the eyes of the Lord are over the righteous, and his ears are open unto their prayers: but the face of the Lord is against them that do evil. And who is he that will harm you, if ye be followers of that which is good?” – 1 Peter 3:10-13.


Though times are hard, God will always sustain His people by answering the prayer, “give us this day our daily bread” and “feed me with food convenient for me”. (Matthew 6:11; Proverbs 30:8). It is commonly said that “when there is life there is hope”. Jesus Christ said, the life is more than meat and the body more important than clothes. “Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?”   – Matthew 6:25,30.
