This morning, I’ve zeroed in on Psalm 138:8:
“The LORD will perfect that which concerns me; Your mercy, O LORD, endures forever; Do not forsake the works of Your hands.” (NKJV)
“You keep every promise you’ve ever made to me!
Since your love for me is constant and endless,
I ask you, Lord, to finish every good thing that you’ve begun in me!” (TPT)
I am reminded…
That He will carry through,
He will refine,
He will polish, and perfect and complete the good work He has started within me.
“For I am confident of this very thing, that He who began a good work in you will perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus.”—Philippians 1:6
He is faithful to do His part, and He will help me to be able to do mine.
Father, thank You for Your grace. You know me, and You see me, and You still love me, in spite of all of my shortcomings and all of my inabilities and all of my failures, and all that I lack…You’re still a proud Father when You look at me—in every single moment… and that never changes!
“To me, you are very dear, and I love you. That’s why I gave up nations and people to rescue you.” —Isaiah 43:4 CEV
Lord, I want to live a life that is pleasing to Your heart, that brings You joy, that makes You smile at me…. and I am reminded that, as Your child, I already do…
Oh God, help me to do my part—whatever that is! No matter what it may look like, no matter how big or small or “insignificant” it may appear to be—none of that matters to You in Your heart, and in Your sight. And that… is all that matters.
Father, may Your will be done in the earth! Make it clear, and make us strong, and make us somehow able to do, whatever it is that You have in Your heart and in Your plan for us to do within this earth!
