Daily Devotional Bible Study Acts 13:16-19 – Why should I worship God? – Free online Bible Study – Commentary in easy English – Day 563

Paul stood up, raised his hand, and said, “You Israelites and you who worship God, please listen! The God of the Israelites chose our ancestors. He made the people great during the time they lived in Egypt, and he brought them out of that country with great power. And he was patient with them for forty years in the desert. God destroyed seven nations in the land of Canaan and gave the land to his people. (Acts 13:16-19)

Paul stood up and raised his hand because he wanted to encourage the Israelites. In the same way, I want to encourage you. I’ve taken Paul’s words, given to him by the Holy Spirit, and am speaking God’s promise into your life. Fill the blanks with your name.

God chose ____________. He made ____________ great during the time _____________ lived. He gave ___________ great power. ______________ made some mistakes but God was patient. With God’s help ___________ fought the enemy, enabling __________ to receive God’s gifts and do His will.

God chose you also. He wants you to receive His encouragement and power and believe and trust Him for His promises. Ask God daily for His power, and He’ll give it to you through His Spirit. You’ll make mistakes as the enemy entices you, but God will be patient with you and help you destroy the enemy. “For the Lord God is a sun and shield; The Lord gives grace and glory; No good thing does He withhold from those who walk uprightly.” (Psalm 84:11) These promises are for you if you worship God.

Heavenly Father, I praise you for the gifts you’ve given me. Thank you for forgiving me and being patient when I make mistakes. Thank you for filling me with the Holy Spirit so I can fight the enemy and be the best version of myself. Help me encourage others as I go through my day. Please protect my entire family, show them favor, and hold them in your loving hands. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
