Daily Devotion Thursday, January 30

Thursday, January 30, 2014 – Psalm 143; Genesis 16:15-17:14; Hebrews 10:1-10 and John 5:30-47

Psalm 143 – 5   I remember the days of old,
I think about all your deeds,
I meditate on the works of your hands.

John 5:30-47 – 36b The works that the Father has given me to complete, the very works that I am doing, testify on my behalf that the Father has sent me.

The works of Christ that I trust in are: his life, his death, his resurrection and his ascension. Through each of these and because of all of them I believe that Jesus was the Christ sent by God to reveal and accomplish God’s will that we abide in Him and He abide in us. These are the works that I meditate upon day in and day out and through them I find the gift of real life.

Psalm 143 opens with these words;

1   Hear my prayer, O LORD;
give ear to my supplications in your faithfulness;
answer me in your righteousness.
2   Do not enter into judgment with your servant,
for no one living is righteous before you.

And then it later goes on to say;

6   I stretch out my hands to you;
my soul thirsts for you like a parched land.

7   Answer me quickly, O LORD;
my spirit fails.
Do not hide your face from me,
or I shall be like those who go down to the Pit.
8   Let me hear of your steadfast love in the morning,
for in you I put my trust.
Teach me the way I should go,
for to you I lift up my soul.

God does answer our prayer as we meditate upon His ways of old and especially upon His eternal love shown and cemented through the life, death and resurrection of His Son.

Today, meditate upon the ways of God shown us through His Son who is the one and true revelation of God.

O God thanks for sending Your Son and through Him revealing Your eternal love unto us. May I focus upon Your ways revealed through the Christ and thus be guided in the way I should go. Amen.
