Devotional For August 9, 2023

For if we live, we live to the Lord; and if we die, we die to the Lord. Therefore, whether we live or die, we are the Lord’s.
‭‭Romans‬ ‭14‬:‭8‬

As believers, our ultimate purpose is to honor, glorify, and serve the Lord. Whether we experience life or face death, our existence finds meaning in our Creator. We are created for a wonderful purpose.

This truth invites us to live with intention, recognizing that every moment is an opportunity to offer our actions, thoughts, and decisions to God. It encourages us to live life to the fullest. It also gives comfort in times of hardship, assuring us that even in death, we remain secure in our Heavenly Father’s care.

Our identity and purpose are found in our relationship with the Lord. As we draw close to the Lord, He will reveal to us His will. As we fulfill our purpose, God is glorified and we are filled with joy and gladness. Is your heart filled with joy?

As you face the good and bad today, remember that you belong to the Lord. Your actions will directly reflect your commitment to Him. No matter the circumstances you face today, you can find purpose, joy, and solace in the boundless love of our Creator.


Lord, thank You for giving me a purpose for living. Even when I die, You still have a purpose and plan for me in heaven. Give me courage to honor You in all that I do. In Jesus’ name, amen.
