Stories of God at Work

from United States

Our Daily Bread devotionals have really been a source of encouragement and spiritual teaching to me as a single mom over the last 14 years. Many times I and my daughter were unable to go to church due to finances/not enough gas to get to church or fellowship with other Christians. We used your devotionals as a starting point to study God’s Word and discuss biblical and life applications of what we read in our bible and your devotional.

The Delight of Despair
My Utmost For His Highest

It may be that, like the apostle John, you know Jesus Christ intimately. Yet when He suddenly appears to you with totally unfamiliar characteristics, the only thing you can do is fall “at His feet as dead.” There are times when God cannot reveal Himself in any other way than in His majesty, and it is the awesomeness of the vision which brings you to the delight of despair.

Stigler treated Brown as a friend even though they were supposed to be enemies.
