Daily Devotion Saturday, November 2

Saturday, November 2, 2013 – Psalm 95; Nehemiah 4:1-23 or Lamentations 5:1-22;
Revelation 7:(4-8) 7:9-17 and Matthew 13:31-35

Revelation 7:(4-8) 7:9-17 – 9After this I looked, and there was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, from all tribes and peoples and languages, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, robed in white, with palm branches in their hands. 10They cried out in a loud voice, saying,
“Salvation belongs to our God who is seated on the throne, and to the Lamb!”

My friend, salvation does belong to our God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Salvation belongs to no other. It is God who does grant eternal life. It is God who holds yesterday, today and tomorrow in his hands. Later on in our reading in Revelation we hear;

15  For this reason they are before the throne of God,
and worship him day and night within his temple,
and the one who is seated on the throne will shelter them.
16  They will hunger no more, and thirst no more;
the sun will not strike them,
nor any scorching heat;
17  for the Lamb at the center of the throne will be their shepherd,
and he will guide them to springs of the water of life,
and God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.”

Thanks be to God that we can trust in Christ who offers and gives eternal life. We can trust in the fact that all who have believe and trust in Christ have been given this gift and their tears are now tears of joy, not sadness or pain.

Because of what God has done for us through Jesus Christ, because God is the God of salvation, we turn to God each day and worship him and give him praise and glory.

Today, focus upon the fact that God is the God of our salvation, so we should dedicate each day to God and seek to love God, serve God and glorify God through all we think say and do.

Psalm 95 – O come, let us worship and bow down,
let us kneel before the Lord, our Maker!
For he is our God,
and we are the people of his pasture,
and the sheep of his hand.

Join me today in worshipping God throughout this blessed Saturday.

“Amen! Blessing and glory and wisdom
and thanksgiving and honor
and power and might
be to our God forever and ever! Amen.”
(Revelation 7:12)
