Daily Devotional from Pastor Mary 4-17-20

Psalm 16: 5-11

Lord, I have chosen you alone as my inheritance.
You are my prize, my pleasure, and my portion.
I leave my destiny and its timing in your hands.

Your pleasant path leads me to pleasant places.
I’m overwhelmed by the privileges
that come with following you,
for you have given me the best!

The way you counsel and correct me makes me praise you more,
for your whispers in the night give me wisdom,
showing me what to do next.

Because you are close to me and always available,
my confidence will never be shaken,
for I experience your wrap-around presence every moment.

My heart and soul explode with joy—full of glory!
Even my body will rest confident and secure.
For you will not abandon me to the realm of death,
nor will you allow your Holy One to experience corruption.
For you bring me a continual revelation of resurrection life,
the path to the bliss that brings me face-to-face with you.

Because of the resurrection of Jesus Messiah, the Anointed One is restoring to every believer his or her spiritual inheritance. Jesus Messiah is not only our inheritance, he IS our destiny. He is the great I AM. Therefore, Satan uses lies in order to feed fear in us; which actually distances us from our destiny in the fullness of Christ. The Lord is loyal beyond our comprehension, so choose to place your faith in the Anointed One and silence the fear around you that is driven by lies. If you chose to silence fear and feed your faith in God’s Word (promise), you choose to live in the wisdom and revelation of the resurrection life. Live in his wrap-around presence!

Prayer: Lord, thank you for the life you provide me each day; I choose to live in the revelation of resurrection life. I know that means I will not always understand my path ahead of time. However, I trust you because you do. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
