A Daily Devotion for Thursday, February 11


Matthew 9: 32-38


verses 37-38: Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.”

Jesus comments on the crowds, and reminds his disciples to pray for more workers. He is going to send his twelve out into the world to spread the good news. If I am to see myself as a disciple, out in the world, doing God’s work, I also need to pray for others doing the same. I don’t always remember to pray for others who have devoted their lives to God. And Jesus asks us to pray for more workers. It is far too easy for me to focus on myself, my successes and failures, my opportunities. I know how small my contribution to God’s work seems. God wants more workers, and I will pray for them.

Father God, We need more people walking the earth with your love in their hearts and with your work on their minds. Help us to help each other. Amen

Matthew 9: 32-38


37 Then he said to his disciples, “ The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. 38 Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.”


Not only is Jesus a healing God, but he wanted the belief in God to grow. Jesus was looking to have more disciples join him as he went from town to town healing and preaching. I often wonder what God may be calling me to do. I don’t feel I am ready to move out of my comfort zone and go door to door, but I will pray for now that I can be some kind of an influence on others for Jesus. In…

Matthew 9:35-36 - “Then Jesus went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, and proclaiming the good news of the kingdom, and curing every disease and every sickness. When he saw the crowds, he had compassion for them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd.”


Yesterday was the last time in Matthew that Jesus tried to keep His healing of people quiet. With the healing of the mute demoniac the floodgates were opened by the compassion that Jesus had in His heart to just dive in to teach and to heal. The Pharisees, however, did not see compassion, claiming Jesus’ healing was itself demonic. They would continue to misinterpret His mission until thei…

Matthew 9: 32-38

Again, Jesus performs another single miracle for a man whose deafness is caused from being possessed by a demon. The man is brought to Jesus by the people. Jesus drives out the demon and the man immediately is able to speak. The people were amazed, nothing like this has ever been seen in Israel! Jesus’ healing powers are very clear that he is the long awaited Messiah and his healing miracles were a sign that his teaching were true. The Pharisees were jealous of Jesus because of his powers and his popularity. They are blind because they cannot Jesus as the Messiah sent from God. they are deaf because they do not hear or do not…

2021-0210 Thursday, Daily Devotion - Matthew 9:32-38


Matthew 9:35-36

35 Jesus went through all the towns and villages, teaching in their synagogues, proclaiming the good news of the kingdom and healing every disease and sickness.

36 When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd.


Jesus did a variety of ministries for the people He encountered all the towns and villages by teaching, proclaiming, and healing. Among them, the strongest motive for His healing ministry was Compassion, seeing the crowds who were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. I hope and pray that I could have big compassion enough to love all people I encounter in…
