The Way Of Faithfulness

S. O. A. P. Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional! S-cripture: Psalm 119:30 I have chosen the way of faithfulness; I have set my heart on your laws. O-bservation: King David let all of his people know that, before God, he had chosen, “The Way of Faithfulness.” It was his own decision to run toward the laws of the Almighty.

O-bservation: King David prayed to God that his heart, the place in his life where his choices were made, was STEADFAST.

But What About My Country?

S. O. A. P. Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional! S-cripture: Psalm 131:3 Israel, put your hope in the Lord both now and forevermore. O-bservation: It was the cry of David’s heart that he, as the monarch of Israel, would somehow see his country always hoping and trusting in the Lord for their help. So his Psalm is a command to his own people. A-pplication: Whenever I read this passage I’m thrilled for Israel, but my first thought is always, “But What About My Country?” I’m sure that wherever you’re reading this from you have a similar response. The first thing to be noted is that as much...

A-pplication: I’m pretty sure that few people in history were ever in more troubling situations than David. Time and time again, when it seemed that there was no way out, the Lord delivered him. To be honest, the stories are...
