Today's Verse: 1 Samuel 12:22

Wednesday, December 22, 2004

For the sake of his great name the LORD will not reject his people, because the LORD was pleased to make you his own.
— 1 Samuel 12:22

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

The great and holy God will not be unfaithful. In fact, he will act to show his character and honor his holy name, even when his people don't deserve his grace. Why God would love and preserve us and our great Israelite ancestors is nothing short of grace, love, and faithfulness.

My Prayer...

Holy and Righteous Father, your grace has not only saved me, but it sustains me even when Satan tries to use my own failures to make me doubt your love for me. Thank you for triumphing over my unworthiness and giving me righteousness so that I will be fit for your kingdom and glory. In Jesus' name I praise you. Amen.
