 Charles Stanley (March-29-2020) Daily Devotional: Sunday Reflection: Sorrow According to the Will of God.

Paul’s second letter to the Corinthians follows up on a previous letter of his (likely 1 Corinthians), in which he rebuked that congregation. In this later epistle, he writes about their feeling grieved and draws a distinction between the sorrows of the world and being “sorrowful according to the will of God” (2 Corinthians 7:9-11...

Jesus’ Temptation: The Peak of Pressure - Charles Stanley Daily Devotional (March-27-2020). We can trust that Jesus understands, because He was tested in the same ways we are.

Charles Stanley (March-26-2020) Daily Devotional: Recognizing God’s Handiwork.

Sometimes it’s hard to understand what God is doing in your life, but over time I’ve learned that we can identify His fingerprints in several ways:

First, the work God does is creative and powerful. He made heaven, earth, and all living creatures, and He knitted each of us in our mother’s womb. Then, through His Son Jesus, He powerfully accomplished ...

God Is at Work - Charles Stanley Daily Devotional (March-25-2020). God is always working, whether or not we can perceive the evidence.

John 5:16-23 ( 16 For this reason the Jews were persecuting Jesus, because He was doing these things on the Sabbath. 17 But He answered them, My Father is working until now, and I Myself am working." 18 For this reason therefore the Jews were seeking all the more to kill Him, because He not only was bre...

A Time to Wait in Prayer - Charles Stanley Daily Devotional (March-24-2020). We seek God's counsel because His wisdom is higher than ours.

Charles Stanley (March-23-2020) Daily Devotional: The Influence of Godly Parents.

In preparing the Israelites for the promised land, God didn’t command priests, teachers, or national leaders to train the next generation. Instead, He assigned this to parents.

This remains true today. First, we’re to train children verbally, through teachings and conversations about God and His Word. Second, we’re to influence them by our actions...

Charles Stanley (March-22-2020) Daily Devotional: His Comfort in Our Mourning.

The Bible is full of stories about people who are hurting. In Psalm 22, the writer cries, “My God, my God, why have You forsaken me?” (Psalm 22:1). When immersed in hurt or sorrow, we too have questions and may cry out to the Lord. Or we might withdraw in silence like Job, who endured staggering losses (Job 2:13).
