Daily Devotional from Pastor Mary 4-15-20

Psalm 118:1-2, 4

A praise psalm

Keep on giving your thanks to God, for he is so good!
His constant, tender love lasts forever!

Let all his princely people sing,
“His constant, tender love lasts forever!”
Let all his lovers who bow low before him sing,
“His constant, tender love lasts forever!”

Many things have changed over the past four weeks; changes in my life, in the lives of others, and in the world. My point is not “what things” have changed, but rather the understanding that we really do live in a temporal world that can never give eternal stability to our lives. NEVER. What gives me security right now—in the midst of all the change and unknown—is the revelation that God’s love and character never changes and can be known. Yesterday, I experienced his wisdom, love, tenderness, holiness, and truth. Today, I experienced it again. Tomorrow, God will be there for me in every way he has promised. It doesn’t matter what changes in this world, God is consistently loving and his Word is living, enduring, and true. So, even though we might have to adapt to change in this temporal world, we can seek God’s Kingdom every single day and we will find the King tenderly responsive, full of mercy, abounding in love, and looking for ways to impart his goodness into our lives. Here’s why you can find security in God: he lives true to his covenant! He promised to take care of us in this unstable sin-laden world and he fulfills every promise! Priceless! Give him thanks!

Prayer: Lord, thank you for being the eternal Rock upon which I stand. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
