Sunset over Mountains

April 25
Isaiah 65:17-25

17“For behold, I create new heavens and a new earth;

And the former things will not be remembered or come to mind.

18“But be glad and rejoice forever in what I create;

For behold, I create Jerusalem for rejoicing

And her people for gladness.

19“I will also rejoice in Jerusalem and be glad in My people;

And there will no longer be heard in her

The voice of weeping and the sound of crying.

20“No longer will there be in it an infant who lives but a few days,

Or an old man who does not live out his days;

For the youth will die at the age of one hundred

And the one who does not reach the age of one hundred

Will be thought accursed.

21“They will build houses and inhabit them;

They will also plant vineyards and eat their fruit.

22“They will not build and another inhabit,

They will not plant and another eat;

For as the lifetime of a tree, so will be the days of My people,

And My chosen ones will wear out the work of their hands.

23“They will not labor in vain,

Or bear children for calamity;

For they are the offspring of those blessed by the LORD,

And their descendants with them.

24“It will also come to pass that before they call, I will answer; and while they are still speaking, I will hear.25“The wolf and the lamb will graze together, and the lion will eat straw like the ox; and dust will be the serpent’s food. They will do no evil or harm in all My holy mountain,” says the LORD.


LightbulbTips on spending devotional time with God

There are many methods to quieting ourselves to spend devotional time with God. Below are several suggestions to approaching spending time with God.

  1. Set a time. We’ve all heard it said that it takes between 21 days to three weeks for something to become a habit. Set aside a time for devotions that will allow you to be consistent most days during your week. In the bible, most Christians spent morning hours with God—meeting God before meeting men. However, if the morning isn’t a convenient time, choose a time of day that will allow you to be consistent.
  2. Locate an area free of distraction. When Jesus spent time with God, He usually went off by Himself to spend quiet, alone time with God. We should follow His example. When we sit down to meditate on the word of God, we should do this without interruptions from the television and phone.
  3. Read God’s word. Reading God’s word during devotional time is beneficial for several reasons. Firstly, it allows us a subject upon which we can meditate; secondly, we are commanded in the bible to “put on the full armor of God.” That armor is the word of God. Thirdly, the reply we are waiting on from God can come in the form of scripture.
