In 1 Samuel 12:22, we find this promise of God: “For the sake of his great name the LORD will not reject his people, because the LORD was pleased to make you his own.” God desires companionship, fellowship, and communion with those who will reciprocate his expressions of friendship.
We remember today, the pain and suffering of the cross, and all that Jesus was willing to endure, so we could be set free. He paid the price, such a great sacrifice, to offer us the gift of eternal life.
Help us never to take for granted this huge gift of love on our behalf. Help us to be reminded of the cost of it all. Forgive us for being too busy, or distracted by other things, for not fully recognizing what you freely given, what you have done for us.
Thank you Lord that by your wounds we are healed. Thank you that because of your huge sacrifice we can live free. Thank you that sin and death have been conquered, and that your Power is everlasting.
Thank you that we can say with great hope, “It is finished…” For we know what’s still to come. And death has lost its sting. We praise you for you are making all things new.
Jesus is Lord
If you are a believer, do you understand the importance of the Holy Spirit in your life? He is the one who enables you to live the Christian life. He is your Helper, your Teacher, and your Guide.
Application: Spend some time in Scripture reading about the role of the Holy Spirit in a Christian’s life. Suggested passages: John 14:26; John 16:1-15.
Simply knowing God’s word will give us power to live out our days with understanding and wisdom.
I pray that the spirit of God will rest upon his people that they may speak boldly HIS words to win the people of the world over to HIM. I pray that the world will seek his face and turn from their ways. The Bible is fulfilling itself ready or not the Lord wishes that none of US will perish but to come into the knowledge of he Son Jesus Christ. I pray that people will repent for there sins and live a life that will be pleasing to God.
Jesus is coming back ready or not.
Lord help us to prepare for you like we’re prepare for the coronavirus…
Psalm 91 New Life
The Lord—the One We Trust
91 He who lives in the safe place of the Most High will be in the shadow of the All-powerful. 2 I will say to the Lord, “You are my safe and strong place, my God, in Whom I trust.” 3 For it is He Who takes you away from the trap, and from the killing sickness. 4 He will cover you with His wings. And under His wings you will be safe. He is faithful like a safe-covering and a strong wall.
5 You will not be afraid of trouble at night, or of the arrow that flies by day. 6 You will not be afraid of the sickness that walks in darkness, or of the trouble that destroys at noon. 7 A thousand may fall at your side, and ten thousand at your right hand. But it will not come near you. 8 You will only look on with your eyes, and see how the sinful are punished. 9 Because you have made the Lord your safe place, and the Most High the place where you live, 10 nothing will hurt you. No trouble will come near your tent.
11 For He will tell His angels to care for you and keep you in all your ways. 12 They will hold you up in their hands. So your foot will not hit against a stone. 13 You will walk upon the lion and the snake. You will crush under your feet the young lion and the snake.
14 Because he has loved Me, I will bring him out of trouble. I will set him in a safe place on high, because he has known My name. 15 He will call upon Me, and I will answer him. I will be with him in trouble. I will take him out of trouble and honor him. 16 I will please him with a long life. And I will show him My saving power.
Psalms 27:14 – Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, i say, on the LORD.
