S. O. A. P.
Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!
For what you have done I will always praise you in the presence of your faithful people. And I will hope in your name, for your name is good.
David had been on the run from King Saul, and in his haste to avoid capture he paused to praise the Lord. What others had done to him at this point was of no concern when placed in the light of God’s Grace. He finally said, “My HOPE Is In The Name Of The Lord.”
Wherein does your hope lie? I spoke to a man recently who is still hoping an outdated idea he has will blast onto the market and make him wealthy and famous. Still another woman believes she is going to be named to a high position at her place of employment. She doesn’t have the credentials for the promotion, and there are others ahead of her. But David speaks of a hope that surely will endure all other desires and in time prove to be everything he’d Hoped for. David’s hope and trust was totally in the Lord. Remember, David wrote these Psalms before there were printing presses. Yet today, several thousand years later, David’s words stand true. It wasn’t deep and layered with sourced research to prove that what he was saying was true. No! It was simply stated, and it works today: “My HOPE Is In The Name Of The Lord.”
I don’t have a million words to describe my lifelong rock to stand on and the anchor that holds me there. It’s just a simple statement that I’ve built my life upon. “My HOPE Is In The Name Of The Lord.” Amen
