S. O. A. P.
Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!
1 Samuel 12:24
But be sure to fear the Lord and serve him faithfully with all your heart; consider what great things he has done for you.
The Prophet Samuel had come to the end of his primary role as leader of Israel. Before Saul became the first King of Israel, Samuel gave what could be called his “Passing The Torch” speech. As he came to his conclusion, he made a powerful statement. “Whatever you do, keep fearing Your great God in heaven, and serve Him with everything you’ve got. Never forget all the wonderful things He’s done for you.”
“Take Time To Consider Jesus.” In his finest hour, that’s what the Prophet Samuel said to the people of Israel. You will have Kings who fail you. You will have Bosses who fail you. You will have Spouses who fail you. You will have Children who fail you. You will NEVER experience JESUS failing you EVER! You can read Scripture from cover to cover and see that Jesus never fails. You can read the stories of Christian missionaries and martyrs, and to a man and woman they will say … “Jesus Never Failed Me.” You and I have been blessed. Face it, we didn’t get here strictly on our own merit. No! We’ve had help. Countless people have helped us for sure, but in the end it’s always been Jesus who kept us going. Give people their kudos and pat yourself on the back from time to time, but never fail to … “Take Time To Consider Jesus!”
This AM, as I read the words of the great Priest and Prophet Samuel. I stopped in my tracks and said … “Thank You Jesus!” Who is anyone trying to fool? Without You, none of us would have a chance at even drawing the next breath! I will forever Praise and Love You! Amen
