Today's Verse: Psalm 34:2 (KJV)

Saturday, October 2, 2021

My soul shall make her boast in the LORD: the humble shall hear thereof, and be glad.
— Psalm 34:2 (KJV)

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

We have no basis to boast in our own might. We can't preserve our life. We can't topple kingdoms. We can't see the edge of the heavens. We can't determine the future or change the past. So what do we have in which we can boast? God! We are living proof of his grace and mercy — he saved us when we didn't deserve it, he rescued us from sin and death when we had no power to preserve our life. Those in sorrow, brokenness, and night can look at us and rejoice, because we are living proof God saves the sinner, raises up the disheartened, and mends the broken. Praise the LORD for his glory. Praise the LORD for his grace.

My Prayer...

Father, thank you! Thank you for all that you have done for me. Let others see your work in me and understand that you can do a great thing in them, as well. In Jesus' precious name I pray. Amen.
