Today's Verse: Psalm 121:7-8

Thursday, June 22, 2006

The Lord will keep you from all harm — he will watch over your life; the Lord will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore.
— Psalm 121:7-8

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

Our lives are not lived out on our own, alone. The Lord is with us personally. He holds our future and our safety in his hands. Our deliverance is assured, either deliverance from death which means service to him, or deliverance to him through death which means freedom from the constraints of mortality and the battle with sin. The Lord will keep us from all harm!

My Prayer...

Mighty Protector, Rock of my salvation, thank you that I cannot go where you are not. Thank you that my future is secure with you. Make this assurance the convicting power in my life to turn over my future and my life to you. By the power of Jesus I believe this, and in his name I ask it. Amen.
