The Light Daily Devotional – Divine Approval
Focus: Divine Approval
The word for today
To speak God’s counsel and gain the attention of others, you must first obtain His divine approval. It is not within your authority to be heard by anyone unless God Himself instructs them to listen!
“And a voice came out of the cloud, saying, “This is My beloved Son. Hear Him!” Luke 9:35 NKJV
The Lord Jesus Himself did not embark on His ministry without the unmistakable introduction of God, as evidenced during His baptism. Another powerful moment of divine approval occurred at the mount of transfiguration. These biblical examples demonstrate that divine approval is crucial in fulfilling God’s purpose. Without His endorsement, our efforts, no matter how well-intentioned or noble, can be in vain. We need God’s guidance, confirmation, and empowerment to effectively carry out His plans.
It is through His approval that our words have power, our actions have meaning, and our endeavors align with His divine purpose. In our own lives, seeking divine approval should be a priority. We must align ourselves with God’s will, listen to His instruction, and faithfully follow His leadership. It is only in this place of divine approval that our words will carry weight, and others will be receptive to the message God has entrusted to us.
Recognizing the importance of divine approval, we can walk in confidence, knowing that our endeavors are not in vain but are divinely orchestrated to bring glory to God and fulfill His purpose in our lives and the world around us.
Do you seek God’s approval?
Lord! Help me to prioritize seeking Your approval above seeking the validation and recognition of others in Jesus’ name. Amen!
Emphasis: You have no right to speak God’s counsel until you have gained His approval. No man will hear you until God instructs them to hear you!
Have a Wonderful Week Ahead!
