Lenten Daily Devotional from Pastor Mary 3-11-20

Psalm 95:3-5 The Voice (VOICE)

For the Eternal is a great God, and a great King, supreme over all gods.

Within His control are the very depths of the earth; the mountaintops too—they all belong to Him.

The sea belongs to Him, for He created it—scooped and filled it—with His hands He made the dry land—every valley and mountain.

Pause in his presence

Lenten Reflection: Displaying greatness is never difficult for God. He displays his presence in the material and spiritual world. We see his greatness everywhere we look in the beauty of all he has created. He is EL, JEHOVAH, ELOHIM. These names reveal his strength, being and essence, and his covenant relationship with humanity. Creation reveals a spiritual reality, as well. Next time you are enjoying the mountains, remember they reflect his great strength operating in your life. When you find yourself looking at the ocean, remember he carved it for you and washes your soul with the water of his Spirit. When you wander in the valley, remember he created them, too, because he wants something deeper in your relationship and is there to bring you peace and provision for your soul.

Prayer: Lord, be my strength—the essence of everything great you call me to be as I stay in this place of promise with you. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
