Praise & Shine Devotion

Wake up to inspiring music with an inspiring message Sunday morning on Quicksie 98.3. Scott Goettel is your host for Praise & Shine every Sunday morning at 8 AM.

Praise & Shine: Don’t Be Deceived

In Genesis 3:1-7, the story of Adam and Eve, we learn of a menace. The serpent, Satan, deceived the couple into disobeying God and eating the forbidden fruit so they would “be like God”. But why listen to a serpent? Did his words alone entice Eve, or was there also something attractive about him?

Praise & Shine: God Our Rescuer

Whenever life or people threaten to pull us under, as believers in Jesus, we know we have a Rescuer. “For this is what the Sovereign Lord says: I myself will search for my sheep . . . . I will rescue them from all the places where they were scattered” (Ezekiel 34:11-12).

Praise Shine 57: A Divine Duet

Our life in Jesus is much more like a duet than a solo performance. Sometimes, though, we forget that He’s “sitting next to us,” and it’s only by His power and guidance that we can “play” at all. We try to hit all the right notes on our own—to obey God in our own strength, but this usually ends up seeming fake and hollow. We try to handle problems with our limited ability, but the result is often discord with others.

Praise Shine 56: Time Traveling Letters

More than a million young people take part in the International Letter-Writing Competition each year. In 2018, the theme of the competition was this: “Imagine you are a letter traveling through time. What message do you want to convey to your readers?”

If God wrote a letter to you today, what would it say? If you wrote a letter to a friend telling about how you’ve encountered the living God, what would it say?
