Today's Verse: Psalm 31:1 (KJV)

Sunday, July 31, 2005

In thee, O Lord, do I put my trust; let me never be ashamed: deliver me in thy righteousness.
— Psalm 31:1 (KJV)

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

When all the clutter is stripped away, what is your real hope? When you push aside the diplomas, awards, accolades, and honors, what is the basis of your significance? Only one source for hope and only one basis of significance is trustworthy. Only One — the Lord God — endures forever! Only our Father in heaven guarantees that our life is significant. So let's place our hope in the Lord and have him be our refuge!

My Prayer...

O Lord, God and Redeemer of our Fathers, Keeper of your many promises, thank you for allowing me to place my hope, my future, and my significance in your hands. Give me the courage and the confidence to know that you will not let me be put to shame, but will share with me your righteousness on that day I stand in your presence. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
