Today’s Scripture

            “Teach us to number our days, that we may gain a heart of wisdom.” – (Psalm 90:12, NIV)

Value Every Moment

            Have you stopped to consider that today is a special gift from God? Sometimes, our days can be so full and busy that we forget how fragile life really is. It can be easy to allow little things to creep in and steal our peace and joy. Maybe something doesn’t go our way, or someone says something upsetting. Even traffic can cause us to lose focus if we let it. We have to remember that each day is a gift. If we choose to focus on what’s wrong, we’ll miss the blessing that each day has to offer.

            I encourage you today; don’t let the precious moments of life pass you by. Don’t wait for holidays and birthdays to show people that you care. Remember, each day is unique and irreplaceable. You have been given time that can be invested or wasted; hours that can be used or misused. That’s why the psalmist prayed to God, “Teach us to number our days.” He was saying, “Teach us to value every moment we’ve been given.” As you daily keep a proper perspective, you’ll gain a heart of wisdom. You’ll draw closer to God and experience the full blessing that He has for you each and every day!

A Prayer for Today

            “Father, thank You for the gift of today. I choose to focus on the blessing of each moment instead of allowing the little things to steal my joy. Keep me close to You always as I surrender every area of my heart and mind to You in Jesus’ name. Amen.”

By Joel & Victoria Osteen

Today’s Scripture

            “Further, David was greatly distressed because the people spoke of stoning him…But David felt strengthened and encouraged in the LORD his God.”  (1 Samuel 30:6, AMP)

Encourage Yourself

            It’s good to have friends and family around to cheer you up when you’re down, but in order to truly live in victory, that encouragement has to come from the inside. When your mind is telling you it’s not worth it, when your circumstances seem difficult, deep down inside, your spirit has to have the resolve that says, “I refuse to settle where I am.” That’s what David had to do. He was facing a major setback. His family was captured, his city was destroyed, and his own people were now against him, but he still managed to encourage himself in the Lord. How did he do that? He replayed in his mind the victories from the past. He recounted God’s faithfulness. As he rehearsed over and over the goodness of God, strength began to rise in his heart.

            There are so many places you can see the hand of God at work. Thank Him for saving you today. Thank Him for the miracle of life. Thank Him for His faithfulness. Focus on the fact that God didn’t bring you this far to leave you now. Stir up that inner strength and encouragement. As you do, you’ll rise higher and higher and live the life of victory the Lord has prepared for you.

A Prayer for Today

            “Father in heaven, thank You for Your faithfulness today. I choose to focus on You and the good things You have prepared for my future. I thank You for making a way out of no way, and I will bless You always in Jesus’ name. Amen.”

By Joel & Victoria Osteen

A Child’s Spiritual Health As Important As Physical

From the writings of the Rev. Billy Graham

            Q: My husband says that in today’s world we cannot protect our children from things that are on television or the Internet because they need to know what the world is really like. But I am concerned that bad behavior that is celebrated can harm them. Am I wrong? — P.M.

            A: Years ago, some wells in a particular part of the country were contaminated because of a nearby chemical waste dump. Parents would not send their children to drink from these wells. The reason is obvious. The parents were compelled to protect their children from danger.

            The same thing applies when it comes to protecting our children’s moral and spiritual health. Just as they are affected physically by the things they eat and drink, so they are affected morally and spiritually by the things they see and hear — whether on television or anywhere else. While children must learn that the world is steeped in evil, they should not be exposed to it through entertainment. Children need clear cut guidelines in every area of life. The Bible instructs that we “set nothing wicked before (our) eyes” (Psalm 101:3).

            The home is under attack. Satan, the great deceiver, wants us to think that society is good. He wants us to believe that the culture provides all we need for our happiness and social welfare. But beware, the devil is out to destroy and he has targeted marriages, families and homes.

            Be on guard at all times and above all, ask God to help make home a place where Christ is honored. Parents’ example of love and purity and commitment to Christ will be the greatest influence on our children.

DECEMBER 10

Today’s Scripture

            “But if you do not forgive, neither will your Father who is in heaven forgive your transgressions.”  (Mark 11:26, NASB)

How to Move On

            God never promised that life would always be fair. In fact, He warns us of just the opposite! People aren’t perfect; we all make mistakes and bad decisions. You may have been hurt by others in the past, but what’s most important is how you choose to deal with that hurt.

            When you harbor hurts and offenses, it keeps you stuck in the past. It only causes harm in your life. If you want to move forward in joy and peace, you have to choose forgiveness.

            Yes, forgiveness is a choice, and it has nothing to do with the person who hurt you. Forgiveness is the choice to hand your hurts over to God and let Him make up the difference. When we choose to extend forgiveness, that’s when we choose to receive His forgiveness! Today, choose God’s way, choose forgiveness, and choose to move forward in the blessing and victory He has prepared for you!

A Prayer for Today

            “Father, thank You for the gift of forgiveness. Today I open my heart and mind to You. I ask that You help me understand Your truth about forgiveness so that I can be set free. I love You and bless You today in Jesus’ name! Amen.”

By Joel & Victoria Osteen

THE CHOICES WE MAKE

“I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing:  therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live.”  (Deuteronomy 30:19)

            Each one of us has been given the power to make choices.  But the way we choose demands serious consideration.  We have many examples in the Bible of those who made either right or wrong choices and of the bountiful blessings or sad consequence that followed.  Both the natural and spiritual laws of sowing and reaping still stand.  We reap what we sow.

            Multitudes choose to take the broad, easy, downward road even though it leads to destruction.  Fewer are those who are willing to take up the cross of Christ and walk the strait and narrow way, which brings abundant, eternal life.  We can choose to give ourselves in full surrender to Christ and follow Him in full obedience, or we can choose to resist His will, make excuses for our disobedience, and live to please ourselves.  We can cheerfully accept our lot in life with a spirit of godly contentment and restful assurance, if grateful acknowledgement of God’s loving care and overruling hand.  Or as we face the hurts and shattered dreams of life, we can allow attitudes of bitterness, ingratitude, and smoldering anger to hold us in a tight grip.  We can choose by God’s grace to respond to others with love, forgiveness, kindness, and mercy.  Or we can react with malicious revenge or a resentful, grudging, unforgiving spirit.

            If we persist in choosing our own selfish way, whether in action or attitude, we will reap a bitter harvest of remorse, inner conflict, unfulfilled expectations, and a broken relationship with God.  In contrast, choosing the right way brings harmonious relationships, abiding peace, deep joy, true fulfillment, and sweet fellowship with our Creator.  We win or lose by the way we choose.

By Mark Kropf

Read:  Josh. 24:14-23, Heb. 11:23-28

DECEMBER 7

Today’s Scripture

            “…the star which they had seen in the East went before them, until it came and stood over where the young Child was. When they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceedingly great joy. And when they had come into the house, they saw the young Child with Mary His mother, and fell down and worshiped Him...”  (Matthew 2:9-11, NKJV)

Wise Men Rejoice

            The wise men traveled a considerable distance to see the great King whose arrival the Bible foretold. They followed the bright star, and when they found Him, it says they rejoiced exceedingly. Those men were so happy that they couldn’t hide it. Notice what they did next; they fell down and worshiped Him.

            When a wise person seeks Jesus, they are filled with indescribable joy. They are compelled to worship Him! Let that be you and me today. Let’s let the joy of the Lord fill our hearts and be reflected on our faces during the holiday season and every day of the year. Don’t allow the pressures and busyness of life steal your joy. Let those around you see that you’ve been with Jesus. Rejoice in Him, worship Him, and walk with Him in victory all the days of your life!

A Prayer for Today

            “Father, I choose to be wise and seek You first. Fill me with Your joy which is strength. I set my heart and mind on You and worship You. You are the King of kings and Lord of lords in Jesus’ name! Amen.”

DECEMBER 6

Today’s Scripture

            “Let God arise, let His enemies be scattered…”  (Psalm 68:1, NKJV)

Scatter Your Enemies

            What are you letting arise in your life? In other words, what are you focusing your words, energy and thoughts on? You might say, “Oh, it’s just so hard right now. My finances are tight.” “My health doesn’t look good.” “Somebody walked out on me.” No, you’re focusing on the wrong things. You’re letting defeat, discouragement and self-pity rise up. Why don’t you turn that around and say, “God is still in control. Somebody may have walked out on me, but I know God is going to bring me somebody better.” “I may be hurting right now, but I know God is the restorer of my soul.” “I may have an unexpected debt, but I know God is my provider. He is supplying all of my needs. He is fighting my battles.”

            When you give God glory and let Him arise in your life, you can’t stay defeated. No foe can stand against you in the presence of Almighty God. Your enemies will be scattered! They will tremble at your words of faith! Let God arise and embrace the blessing and victory He has prepared for you!

A Prayer for Today

            “Father, right now I release any negative, self-defeating thoughts or attitudes. Instead, I choose to let God arise in my life. I declare that You are worthy, You are holy, and You are the center of my joy, peace and strength in Jesus’ name. Amen.”

By Joel & Victoria Osteen

Conquer ‘Inner Space’ With Jesus

From the writings of the Rev. Billy Graham

            Q: My professors often refer to “inner space” and seem to apply it to every facet of life, including spiritual life, but what does it really mean? — C.P.

            A: Inner space is defined in many ways, but when it comes to the inner life — something we all have — it deals with the dark side of the human spirit. From the vast number of questions on people’s minds it is evident that a large proportion of the population is facing deep personal problems. They vary from person to person, but they do exist, and they are all problems of “inner space.” Thankfully, there is a solution and millions have already found it; that solution is in Jesus Christ. He said, “My peace, my liberty, my freedom, I give to you” (see John 14:27).


DECEMBER 5

Today’s Scripture

            “Good sense makes a man restrain his anger, and it is his glory to overlook a transgression or an offense.”  (Proverbs 19:11, AMPC)

Good Sense

            Every day, we have opportunities to get upset, frustrated or offended. Maybe you had plans that didn’t work out, or someone was rude to you at the office. Maybe you were doing something that should have taken one hour and ended up taking three. Life is full of inconveniences. Even though we can’t always control our circumstances, we can control our reaction. They say, “Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you respond.”

            We should always go out each day with a positive attitude, full of hope and expecting God’s favor. But at the same time, we should recognize that most days are not going to go exactly as we planned. However, we are created to live in peace. Peace is our position of power. If you get stressed because you got off schedule, or upset because your child wouldn’t eat his breakfast, or frustrated because somebody offended you, you are giving away your power. Instead, use good sense! Make the decision to release those offenses and disappointments so you can live in peace. Overlook offense, release offense and move forward in the power and victory the Lord has for you!

A Prayer for Today

            “Father, today I release every care, concern, offense and disappointment to You. I choose to keep the peace that You have given me knowing that with You, my best days are ahead in Jesus’ name! Amen.”

DECEMBER 4

Today’s Scripture

            “…let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith…”  (Hebrews 12:1-2, NKJV)

Content in Your Own Race

            It’s easy to be tempted to go through life competing with everyone around us when we see someone who’s more talented, better looking or has more gifts. Instead of running our race and being comfortable with who we are, oftentimes, we feel inferior and think, “I’ve got to catch up to them.” The problem with this unhealthy competition is that it’s a never-ending cycle.

            There will always be someone ahead of us. But it’s a very freeing thing when you realize, “I’m not competing with you. I don’t have to have as big a house as my neighbor to feel good about myself. I don’t have to keep up with my co-worker. I don’t have to be a certain size. I don’t have to have as many Christmas lights outside. No, I understand that I’m not in competition with my friend, my neighbor or my co-worker. Instead, I’m going to be the best me that I can possibly be.”

            Contentment is an attitude God can work with. When you focus on being who God made you to be and focus on running your own race, that’s when you’ll see things happen. That’s when you’ll rise up higher and position yourself for every spiritual blessing He has in store for you!

A Prayer for Today

            “Father, I humbly come to You giving You all that I am. I choose to keep my eyes on You and allow You to work in my heart and mind. I declare that I am free from competition today in Jesus’ name. Amen.”

By Joel & Victoria Osteen

Satan And All His Lies No Laughing Matter – By Billy Graham

From the writings of the Rev. Billy Graham

Q: Is joking about the Devil a sin? — D.J.

A: Many jokes are made about the Devil, but he is no laughing matter. Some people make light of the Devil, thinking that he is some figment of imagination that runs around with a tail dragging behind him. But with the state of the world and the godless society that permeates the culture, some people take it a little more serious. Then there are those who are drawn to Satan. They want to learn more about the Devil, demons, witchcraft, the occult, etc. In many cases, these people do not fully realize they are inviting Satan to come into their thinking and into their very lives. They are deluded.

The Bible says that Satan is the father of lies. He is the most successful liar of all because he persuades millions of people to follow him. He is called a deceiver. In order to accomplish his purpose, the Devil blinds people to their need for Christ. Two forces are at work in our world — the forces of Christ and the forces of Satan. You must choose the way you will follow.

Pray to the Lord God and ask him to give you strength to live life according to His word in the Bible. Ask Him to protect you and keep you from the deceptions of Satan. Start by giving your life to Christ and draw on the strength of His Holy Spirit to discipline yourself to think on the things of the Lord. Scripture tells us plainly not to give Satan a foothold in our lives (Ephesians 4:27).

Don’t be deceived by Satan and his lies. Instead, stay close to Christ — because the closer you are to Him, the farther away you are from the Devil.


DECEMBER 3

Today’s Scripture

            “But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you.”  (Matthew 5:44, NKJV)

Be Great in the Midst of Criticism

            If you’re going to pursue greatness, if you’re going to be a great businessperson, a great teacher, a great parent, a great leader, you have to understand that not everyone is going to cheer you on. I’d love to tell you that your family, friends and co-workers will celebrate you, but that’s not necessarily the case. Some people simply can’t handle your success. As you grow and increase, as God pours out His favor on you, someone will get jealous. Someone will start finding fault. Don’t be surprised if a relative tries to belittle or discredit you. You can’t focus on making everyone around you happy or you’ll start changing and lose sight of what God has placed in your heart.

            Remember, your destiny is too great to be distracted by people who are never going to affirm you. Don’t take it personally. It’s not about you. It’s their problem. Shake it off, run your race and be great anyway.

            Having greatness in the midst of criticism begins with forgiveness. Don’t hold a grudge. Bless those who curse you; pray for those who spitefully use you. As you keep doing what is right, God will honor you. He’ll promote you, and you’ll be great in the midst of criticism!

A Prayer for Today

            “Father, I come to You today with an open and humble heart. I choose to forgive those who have criticized me. I choose to bless those who have hurt me. I choose to be great because You have equipped and empowered me to be great in the midst of criticism in Jesus’ name! Amen.”

By Joel & Victoria Osteen


DECEMBER 2

Tunnel Vision

Sometimes there is so much focus on what “you” want to do – that you don’t stop and consider the bigger picture of what “God” wants. All you can think about is what’s wrong in your life and what God should do to fix it. Your prayers quickly turn into a list of demands on just how you want God to answer. But prayer doesn’t work that way. God didn’t give you free access to Him just so that you can use Him to get everything you want. Simply put: you can’t make plans for your life and expect God to bless them – just because you want Him to! Jesus wants you to trust Him to make the best decisions – to present your needs, wishes and desires and then have faith that He will respond according to what is good for you! And don’t forget to thank Him for everything that He already has done for you. David thanked God for His blessings in Psalm 103:2-4, “Praise the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits – who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion, who satisfies your desires with good things so that your youth is renewed like the eagles.” Sometimes you can be so focused on your troubles that you forget about all the blessings you’ve already been blessed with. The next time you find yourself afflicted with “tunnel vision,” thinking about all the things “you” want – pray and ask God to give you discernment, understanding, and wisdom . . . but most of all – pray, “God’s will be done.”

NOVEMBER 30

Today’s Scripture

            “Knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing.”  (James 1:3-4, NKJV)

Lacking Nothing

            God wants you to be perfect and complete, living in His abundance and lacking nothing on this earth. That may seem like a stretch from where you are today. It may seem far off; but in an instant, things can turn around. God has set up a system of blessing for you, and it starts with His Word. The Bible says that God has given each of us a measure of faith. We all have faith, and it’s up to us to develop it. Romans 10:17 says that faith grows as we read and study His Word. Faith, in turn, produces patience, and when we allow patience to have its perfect work in us, we will lack no good thing.

            Today, no matter where you are in the process, the key is to keep moving forward by reading and hearing His Word. His Word is alive. His Word will heal your heart and restore your soul. His Word will produce patience in your life so that you can move forward, being complete and lacking nothing all the days of your life!

A Prayer for Today

            “Father God, thank You for Your Word which lights my path and directs my way. I choose to put You first place. I choose to meditate on Your Word, knowing that You are leading me in Your paths of life in Jesus’ name. Amen!”

By Joel & Victoria Osteen

NOVEMBER 29

Today’s Scripture

            “Bring forth fruit that is consistent with repentance [let your lives prove your change of heart].”  (Matthew 3:8, AMPC)

Bring Forth Fruit

            Something supernatural happens when you submit your mind and heart to the Lord. First, your heart changes; then your thoughts begin to change. Your actions begin to change. Your life begins to bring forth fruit, or it displays the character of God. The Bible tells us in Galatians that the fruit of God’s spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. These character traits are proof that God is at work in our lives. Do you have more love than you used to? Are you more at peace than you used to be? Are you more gentle? Self-controlled? That’s because God is at work in your life, and it brings Him pleasure when you act more like Him.

            If you need to grow in any of these areas today, simply open your heart and ask Him to work in your life. He promises that He will complete the good work He’s started in you. Don’t give up! Keep praying, keep believing, keep repenting and submitting your life to Him. Put His Word as a priority in your life, and you will continue to grow and bring forth His fruit and live in His abundant blessings in every area of life!

A Prayer for Today

            “Heavenly Father, thank You for working in my life. Thank You for producing good fruit by Your spirit. I submit myself to You today and invite You to continue Your work in me. I bless You and honor You today in Jesus’ name. Amen.”

NOVEMBER 28

Today’s Scripture

            “He cuts off every branch in me that bears no fruit, while every branch that does bear fruit he prunes so that it will be even more fruitful.”  (John 15:2, NIV)

The Pruning Process

            In life, we all go through a pruning process. God will prune our lives so that we can bear much fruit. To “prune” means something is cut away, something is removed. In other words, maybe a good friend that you counted on moved to another city. Maybe a business shut down that you were connected to, or a relationship went a different direction.

            Friend, God knows what you need in your life in order to grow and flourish. Sometimes when things happen that we don’t understand, we have to just trust that He is working behind the scenes preparing you for increase, preparing you to go to another level. Don’t put a question mark where God has placed a period.

            When you’re going through transition, don’t get bitter. Don’t get down and think it’s the end. Don’t start thinking that you’re a failure. Have the attitude, “God, I let this go knowing that it was only a temporary provision, and what You have in my future will be greater than what I’m letting go of.” If you will accept the change and stay in faith, God will open new doors. He will bring new opportunities, new friendships, and take you to another level of His glory!

A Prayer for Today

            “Father, thank You for loving me enough to work in my life. Today I release the things I don’t understand into Your hands. I believe that You are working behind the scenes on my behalf. I believe that You have good things in store for my future. I choose to wait on You and trust You now and forevermore in Jesus’ name. Amen.”

Today’s Scripture

            “If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you.”  (John 15:7, NIV)

Remain

            In life, we all have ups and downs. There are seasons that are more difficult than others, seasons of testing, trials and temptation where our character is being developed and our faith in God is being strengthened. Sometimes it can feel like you are taking two steps forward and three steps backward. If we’re not careful, we’ll start thinking that life is always going to be this way. Even in the strong seasons, you’ll start looking for things to go wrong.

            God doesn’t want us to be living life like a roller coaster. He wants to bring us to a place of stability where we remain strong in Him. Jesus said, “I am the vine. You are the branches. If you abide in me, you will bear much fruit and your fruit will remain.” The word “remain” means “to be fixed, immovable, not affected by circumstances.” If you will just keep abiding in Him, just keep meditating on His Word, He’ll bring you through. He’ll make you strong, He’ll keep you stable, and you’ll keep moving forward into the life of blessing He has prepared for you!

A Prayer for Today

            “Father, today I set my heart and mind on You knowing that You are good and faithful. I trust that as I seek You and put You first, You will direct my steps. I choose to remain in You and follow Your leading in everything I do in Jesus’ name. Amen.”

Today’s Scripture

            “Though the fig tree may not blossom, nor fruit be on the vines…yet I will rejoice in the Lord, I will joy in the God of my salvation.”  (Habakkuk 3:17-18, NKJV)

Switch Over

            We all face challenges and obstacles in this life. We all have dreams in our hearts, and at times, it looks like they’re not going to come to pass. During these difficult seasons, we have a choice. We can get negative and discouraged and talk about how things are not going to work out, or we can switch over into praise and thanksgiving which opens the door for God to move on our behalf.

            A lot of times people think, “I’ll have a good attitude as soon as I get over this health issue.” “Joel, I’ll give God praise when I get through these tough times.” But that’s not how faith works. As long as we’re negative, discouraged and focused on our problems, it limits what God can do. You’ve got to give God praise first, and then the breakthrough will come. You’ve got to change your focus first, and then things will change in your favor. Praise always precedes the victory.

            Today, if you’ve been dwelling on the wrong things and focusing in the wrong direction, switch over into praise and thanksgiving. Begin to declare that God is good. Declare that He is faithful. Declare His praises and open the door to victory in every area of your life!

A Prayer for Today

            “Father God, today I humbly come before You, lifting You up and magnifying Your holy name. Thank You for Your goodness and faithfulness in my life. I bless You and honor You for Your goodness in Jesus’ name. Amen!”

By Joel & Victoria Osteen

7 Suggestions When God is Silent

Have you ever been there? Has the silence of God in your life ever been eerily strong?

Imagine you had been faithfully serving… God is using you… you are in constant communication with Him… and then suddenly… everything is quiet. You have to wait.  Read more…

 

 

 

DAD, LET’S SING

“For you will go out with joy, And be led forth with peace;

The mountains and the hills will break forth into shouts of joy before you,

And all the trees of the field will clap their hands.”  (Isaiah 55:12)

            Familiar landmarks flashed by as the threesome motored along the highway.  Little lisps of conversation floated from two lads in booster seats behind the driver.  Amiably, the boys shared insights befitting the wisdom of their years.  In need of occasional backing, they quizzed Dad from time to time.  But Dad’s answers sounded short and toneless.  His thoughts centered on the pressures of his work.  Sometimes he emitted a disgruntled sigh.

            Suddenly a childish voice suggested, “Hey, Dad, let’s sing.  I like how singing makes me feel good.”  Dad’s musing stopped short.  “Well, what do you want to sing?” he asked.  “Little brother and I both want to sing ‘Up From the Grave He Arose,'” spoke the innocent voice.  With a rueful smile at the winsome rebuke, Dad began singing in a lusty voice that soon found a happy crescendo.

            Singing is a natural expression of God’s children.  What really is so difficult about just singing?  Perhaps we have already told God about our problems, yet the present discouragements fill us with anxiety.  What can we do?  Maybe it is time to tell our problems about God.  One way to accomplish this is by singing.  Songs of God’s past faithfulness, of present mercies, and of eternal truth have a curious way of causing our troubles to shrivel and disappear.

            Someday we’ll no longer concern ourselves with things of time and sense.  Heaven’s gates of pearl will open and give entrance to streets of gold.  Clothed in robes of righteousness, we’ll join a great reunion of the saints around God’s throne.  “The glory of God and of the Lamb” will enlighten the place.  We’ll do some glorious things like just singing throughout eternity.  So let’s sing today!

Alleluia; Salvation, and glory, and honour, and power;

unto the Lord our God.  (Revelation 19:1)

WHO IS YOUR GOD?

Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am.” (John 8:58)

            Various prominent religions of the world were founded by men.  Did any of these men claim to be God?  For example, Hinduism is one of the oldest religions and has millions of followers.  Hinduism has no single god and no leader who claimed to be God.  Confucius was a Chinese philosopher who founded a religion bearing his name, but he never claimed to be God.  Gautama was called Buddha and established the religion of Buddhism.  But he did not believe that God existed, so he never claimed to be God.  Mohammed referred to God as Allah and founded a religion that today has millions of followers, but neither did he claim to be God.

            One founder of a great religion did reveal Himself as God, and He is Jesus Christ.  Three times in John 8, Jesus referred to Himself as “I am.”  The first two times are in verses 24 and 28.  “If you believe not that I am He, you shall die in your sins…When you have lifted up the Son of man, then shall you know that I am He.” (The word he is not in the original Greek text.)  Jesus’ third claim is in today’s key verse.  In all these statements Jesus identified Himself as God, the I AM of Exodus 3:14.

            Jesus’ claim to be God was one of the main reasons that His enemies crucified Him.  Was His claim true?  Acts 17:31 says that God “hath given assurance (about Jesus) unto all men, in that He hath raised Him from the dead.”  So among the many founders of religions, Jesus Christ is the only one worthy to be followed.  Only Jesus died as the Savior of the world, rose again, and is still living today.  Do you know Him as your God?
