Every morning during my prayer time I read several daily readings and my Bible. Two of these daily readers are GRACE FOR EACH MOMENT BY ONE MINUTE DEVOTIONS written and compiled by several Christian writers and published in 2011. MY UTMOST FOR HIS HIGHEST (365 one minute meditations) by Oswald Chamber and published in 1935.
These daily readings were written 76 years apart; one written by the famous Christian writer and the other written by various Christian writers.
How can it be that two readings on the same day can convey the same message?
There is only one answer to that question. Only the Holy Spirit delivered this message in these two books on this particular day.
The Holy Spirit blessed me by these readings, only the Holy Spirit knew I needed and longed for this message.
My prayer for you today is that these messages will bless your life too.
FROM GRACE FOR EACH MOMENT – ONE MINUTE DEVOTIONS (written 2011)
Psalm: 37:18 The days of the blameless are known to the Lord, and their inheritance will endure forever
We often hear of people who apparently live virtuous lives and yet are plagued by disaster. Sometimes we want to question God’s actions, and it is difficult to agree with Paul when he says, “We know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose” (Rom 8:28)
However, it is important to remember that God’s perspective on life is eternal and He truly desires all things to work for your own good. Paul also says that our present suffering does not outweigh the glory that will be revealed in us (see Rom 8:18)
Take courage and let your heart be peaceful – God’s grace is sufficient!
Prayer: I thank you, all-knowing God that Your grace is always sufficient for me, despite my problems. Amen

The Undetected Sacredness of Circumstances
Romans 8:28 All things work together for good to those who love God
The circumstances of a saint’s life are ordained of God. In the life of a saint there is no such thing as chance. God by His providence brings you into circumstance that you can’t understand at all but the Spirit of God understands. God brings you to places, among people and into certain conditions to accomplish a definite purpose. All your circumstances are in the hand of God.
