Today's Verse: Psalm 62:7

Monday, March 27, 2006

My salvation and my honor depend on God; he is my mighty rock, my refuge.
— Psalm 62:7

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

Who we are, what becomes of us in life, and what we accomplish of significance are all in God's hands. We cannot achieve lasting honor for ourselves without his blessing. We cannot secure our future or our safety without his protection and blessing. The basis of all achievement and glory is dependent upon our willingly placing our lives in his care.

My Prayer...

O Rock, Fortress of my life, I place myself in your care. Take charge of my future and use me for your glory. In you I take refuge and on your strength I rely to make my days worthwhile. In the precious name of Jesus I pray. Amen.
