Devotion for Friday, March 02, 2018
“My mouth will tell of your righteous acts, of your deeds of salvation all the day, for their number is past my knowledge. With the mighty deeds of the Lord God I will come; I will remind them of your righteousness, yours alone.” (Psalm 71:15-16)
How much does the Lord do each day that you or I are unaware of? How often does something not happen that would hurt us? How many good things fall into place that benefit us? The Lord is good all the time and His goodness comes to all. Be reminded of the Lord’s goodness and speak of it day and night. Devote yourself to the One who provides for all and sing His praises.
Lord, thank You for all the good things You do. You are the Sustainer of the universe and You provide for all people. Guide me, O Lord, not to look at the evil in the world and give up hope, but to see Your goodness and praise You for the multitude of ways in which billions are blessed each day. Change my point of view and help me understand and praise Your goodness always.
Lord Jesus, we read of your many miracles and are told there were many, many more. The greatest miracle is the salvation You paid for to provide for all that they may not perish, but have everlasting life. Guide me, O Lord, in Your ways that I would learn to praise You and all the works You accomplish through those who believe. Remind me in times of forgetfulness. Amen
