Daily Devotional from Pastor Mary 8-11-21

Psalm 57: 9-11 (CEV)
I will praise you, Lord,
    for everyone to hear,
    and I will sing hymns to you
    in every nation.
Your love reaches higher
    than the heavens;
    your loyalty extends
    beyond the clouds.
May you, my God, be honored
    above the heavens;
    may your glory be seen
    everywhere on earth.

Every believer will continually be tasting the love and loyalty of the Father for them as his son or daughter. God picks the times and places to reveal his extravagant love; however, we must trust he is going to show how much he loves us. He is more than Words; God is love in miraculous and righteous evil-defeating action. No enemy we may face has the power to thwart God’s plan for our lives. The heavenly Father’s love for us is greater than anything we can imagine, yet sometimes we have to sing our praises for his great love while we are still in the valley of dark circumstances.

In our passage today, David sings a song of praise before he sees the light of change. Keep in mind David is innocent and hiding in a dark cave from those who want to destroy him. David does not let his circumstances rob him of joy. Faith is about our confident trust in God. David knows his heavenly Father will respond at the appointed time, because God is loyal to his Word and his love never fails. Therefore, in the midst of this dark cave, David begins to praise the Lord and exalt him with the confident hope of victory. David’s enemies no longer matter and have no power to destroy his life, because he knows God is with him and for him. Faith will lift you and me above the pain of our circumstances, too, as we praise the Lord for his loyal and steadfast love.

Prayer: Father, thank you for your love and loyalty to deliver your sons and daughters from evil. We praise you and honor you! In Jesus’ name. Amen.
