Adjectives For God & Apple Turnovers

Matthew 10:1 (erv)

Jesus called his twelve followers together. He gave them power over evil spirits and power to heal every kind of disease and sickness.


Before we get into today’s devotional, I would love it if you opened your Bible back up and read through Matthew 10 in it’s entirety. I know the scripture listed for today is only the first verse, but the devotional today surrounds the entire chapter. Once you’re done reading, come on back so we can break some of this down!

Every once in awhile, instead of fully journaling about my thoughts surrounding a particular verse or section of scripture, I’ll make notes about a particular theme that I feel called to focus on. When I was reading Matthew 10, I kept thinking about God’s character, and who He is. In this particular case, His qualities are displayed in human form through Jesus, which often makes it even easier to reflect on and attempt to understand.

I made small notes on several verses throughout this chapter, and I titled my page, “Adjectives describing God.” So today, I thought I’d share some of those, simply to provide a perspective that you may not have thought about when reading the scriptures yourself. When journaling, I started with the adjective, then I wrote why I felt that way, and I ended with the verse reference. It looks something like this:
Generous because He gave the disciples the power to heal others -> Verse 1

Below, I’ll share the remainder of my journal entries, all centering specifically around God’s character.

Trustworthy because He didn’t send His people out without a plan or to simply figure it out for themselves. He prepared them and told them what to do -> Verse 3

Compassionate because He instructed His disciples to go out and heal others -> Verse 8

Kind because He warned the men that it would be difficult. He could have kept them in the dark and acted as a “because I said so” God, but He didn’t. He doesn’t use His glory/power for anything but good -> Verse 16

In Control because He assures the disciples that they will be given the right words to say -> Verse 20

Supportive because He knows what’s coming and still encourages me not to be afraid. He reassures me of His protection and love -> Verses 26-29

Loving because He values me. He knows me better anyone else; everything about me. And He tells me He loves me anyway -> Verses 30-31


It’s your turn! As you read through Matthew 10, pick a theme to focus on and jot down any thoughts and the verses that hone in on that particular topic or theme.


Ask the Lord to reveal something in your reading today that helps you to know Him more deeply.
