Daily Devotion Tuesday, May 28th

Tuesday, May 28, 2013 – Psalm 123; Deuteronomy 4:15-24; 2 Corinthians 1:12-22 and Luke 15:1-10

2 Corinthians 1:12-22 – 18As surely as God is faithful, our word to you has not been “Yes and No.” 19For the Son of God, Jesus Christ, whom we proclaimed among you, Silvanus and Timothy and I, was not “Yes and No”; but in him it is always “Yes.” 20For in him every one of God’s promises is a “Yes.” For this reason it is through him that we say the “Amen,” to the glory of God.

This morning I’m thinking of all the promises that I made and didn’t keep. I’ve told many a person that I’d be by to see them, then got busy and forgot. I’ve made plans and then changed them.

God is the only one who truly is a promise maker and a keeper of each and every one of his promises. In Jesus Christ God was keeping all his promises and making way to say YES to us. When Jesus was crucified for all our sins, God said yes unto that sacrifice and unto us by raising him from the dead. Jesus is God’s loud and clear YES unto us, calling us to be united in relationship with God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

Our life is to be lived as a lifelong yes unto God’s YES. Praise be to God for his YES unto us, that comes before anything we do, anything we believe, before anything. God’s YES is the gift that we’re called to unwrap throughout our life, unwrap each and every day.

Today, receive this gift from God, his eternal YES unto all his promises, his eternal YES unto all creation, his YES unto you.

May we believe and trust in God’s YES and enjoy this gift today and always.

O God, thanks for saying YES unto us, even before we were willing and able to say yes unto you. May we live this day as a response to your gift, your YES unto us and all. Amen.

Psalm 123 – 1   To you I lift up my eyes,
O you who are enthroned in the heavens!
2   As the eyes of servants
look to the hand of their master,
as the eyes of a maid
to the hand of her mistress,
so our eyes look to the LORD our God,
until he has mercy upon us.
