Nightly Devotions, November 25, 2013 – John 3:3-8

I am reminded of the importance of Baptism once again, and since it’s only been three weeks since I was baptized, I also realize that with all the temptations in this world, one can stray from the path very easily. For some it can be a drink, others it could be sins of the flesh, but for most people, it’s in the little things, such as getting angry when someone cuts you off on the road, the waiter or waitress at a restaurant that’s having a hard night and not keeping your cup full. For most God fearing people, you might not realize what it is until you’ve really taken time with the Word.

3. Jesus answered and said to him, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.”
4. Nicodemus said to Him, “How can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter a second time into his mother’s womb and be born?”
5. Jesus answered, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God.
6. That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.
7. Do not marvel that I said to you, ‘You must be born again.’
8. The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear the sound of it, but cannot tell where it comes from and where it goes. So is everyone who is born of the Spirit.”

– John 3:3-8

Nightly Devotion, November 18, 2013 Psalms 4:8

I will both lay me down in peace, and sleep: for thou,  Lord , only makest me dwell in safety.

– Psalms 4:8

Tonight I am tired. It has been a long day. Ever since I made the decision to follow our Lord, Jesus Christ, Satan has been coming into my dreams, showing me things that I do not want to see. Last night, I dreamt that I was in this small town. It was present day, but everyone was dressed either Gothic or in 1800’s attire.

Rituals were being performed, but they were not holy. My wife was hanging from the rafters by her wrists in one of the town halls along with many other women, all of which were about to receive a branding (I couldn’t see what the brand was) on their exposed left breast.

My children were not in the dream. We didn’t have kids in it. Eventually, my wife and I escaped in a car into a corn field.

Tonight, I say this prayer and ask God to take away these unholy nightmares. I ask for a peaceful rest, and prosperity in the morning.
