Today’s devotion is based on Psalm 19:7, “The law of the Lord is perfect, converting the soul; the testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple.”
God assures us that he will never forget us and has a place for us in heaven.
How do we know these truths? Here, we can know God in two ways: through the majesty of nature and through the beauty of his word. The world mocks God’s word, so we need to guard against the tendency of becoming ashamed of its simplicity and thinking we are too clever in our modern age to accept the truths in the word. The word of God is perfect, teaching us, converting us, making us wise, rejoicing our hearts, and enlightening us.
Please pray with me, Gracious God, we thank you that you have revealed yourself to us as the sustaining creator of our world. We praise you for your goodness in giving us your word, which tells us that you are above all, our loving and saving God. Help us immerse ourselves in your word and let it dwell in our hearts and lives, giving us joy and the assurance of your love. Amen.
