Seeking His Face is a refreshing daily devotional from beloved pastor and bestselling author, Dr. Charles Stanley. Open your heart to the Father as Dr. Stanley leads you in a daily quest to seek His face.
Follow after God each day and allow Him to mold you into the man or woman He intends for you to be. For, as Dr. Stanley writes,"Only a divine encounter with God can satisfy the inner longing of your heart and bring a true sense of fulfillment and lasting peace."
When the hours ahead hold smiles and laughter, the goodness of God is clear. But what do you do with the pain you didn’t see coming or the loss you were not prepared to face? The heart of God is rich with love. He cares about everything concerning you. Snuggled into the center of the Bible is the book of Psalms. You will find great joy and deep sorrow reflected in the beauty of these scriptures. By examining three translations of the word of God, you will gain insight into the Father’s heart. Tomorrow is not promised; however, be confident that the God of mercy and grace walks with you—one day at a time.
With scripture and new personal reflections, the #1 New York Times bestselling author Sarah Young, brings Jesus’ message of joy—for today and every day. Experience true joy—now and always.
Life today is full of difficulties—loss, sadness, fear. In the midst of these challenges, joy often feels impossible or out of reach. But Jesus has more for His followers than a life of striving, pain, and discontent. He offers life abundant, life to the fullest, life brimming with joy! Jesus Always, the new 365-day devotional from bestselling author Sarah Young, was written as part of Sarah Young’s exploration of the promises of joy in scripture. Written as if Jesus Himself is speaking directly to the reader, Jesus Always invites you into a new way of living—a life of joy.
Reaching out with joy-filled reminders from the Word of God, these devotions will intimately and gently connect you with Jesus—the One who meets you where you are. Draw near to Him in Jesus Always.
The Lord still speaks today in the stillness of your mind; read what He is saying to His people, and may His words uplift, encourage, and richly bless your life. God loves you and wants to speak to you today. Will you take time to hear Him? To God, be all the praise and all the glory forever, Amen.
