S. O. A. P.
Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!
For you are a people holy to the Lord your God. Out of all the peoples on the face of the earth, the Lord has chosen you to be his treasured possession.
These were the words of Moses to the people of Israel not long before he would die and Joshua would lead them into the land of promise. He said, “Of all the people on the planet, You’re Special.”
Those of us who are “Followers of Jesus” are part of His Church. We believe that the New Testament Church is the Bride of Christ, and that all of the promises given to Israel in the Old Testament are given to the Church in the New Testament. The Church is made up of millions of people like YOU and ME. So in effect, Jesus is speaking to individual people today and He’s saying, “I know that people have said evil things about you. I know that the enemy of your soul is always trying to destroy your faith and will to press on. I also know that you have faced many personal trials that made you question if you should even go on. That’s why I want you to know, with all of MY heart, You’re Special!”
There is never a doubt in my mind, ever, saying that You aren’t in my corner or You don’t love me! I’m thankful for a Savior who is always on my side. Amen
Yes, and amen! It’s wonderful to have that “blessed assurance”. Thanks for the reminder!!
