Daily Devotional from Pastor Mary 9-27-16

Daily Reading: 9-27-16
Psalm 62:5-12 Contemporary English Version (CEV)

In a world where words and actions are frequently unkind, isn’t it wonderful to know that God is entirely kind? Our hearts are always safe with God. Always. He does not love us because we are respectful or kind to Him. He loves us because He is powerful and infinitely kind enough for all of us no matter what the state of our hearts. As humans, we can accept or reject God and He will still be kind. However, how sweet to enjoy fellowship with Him in Christ. Seek His kind heart!

God Is Powerful and Kind

Only God gives inward peace,
    and I depend on him.

God alone is the mighty rock
    that keeps me safe,
    and he is the fortress
    where I feel secure.

God saves me and honors me.
    He is that mighty rock
    where I find safety.

Trust God, my friends,
    and always tell him
each one of your concerns.
    God is our place of safety.

We humans are only a breath;
    none of us are truly great.
All of us together weigh less
    than a puff of air.
Don’t trust in violence
or depend on dishonesty
    or rely on great wealth.
I heard God say two things:
    “I am powerful,
    and I am very kind.”
The Lord rewards each of us
    according to what we do.

Prayer: Lord, I can always depend on your kindness and love. I put my trust in you. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
