Hear Pastor Cecil read today's Evotional
JESUS IS OUR SALVATION!
Psalm 118:14 – Devotional
“The LORD is my strength and song, and is become my salvation.”
Have you ever received one of those notices from the friendly folks at your bank informing you that there is a deficit in your checking account and you need to take action immediately or dire action will follow?
It is very easy for us to feel overwhelmed by circumstance. As a result, we spend far too much time wallowing around in self-pity or complaining that life is so hard we can hardly stand it.
When I read today’s Scripture, I visualize a group of athletes getting set for their event. You can see each of them pausing and even see their lips moving as they tell themselves that they can do it. It will require their very best, but they can do it.
Sometimes we need to give ourselves a pep talk. To others it may appear that we are talking to ourselves, and in fact I guess that is what it is. But as we read this passage in Psalm 118, it is a clear picture of the Psalmist talking to himself. He is distressed. He feels inadequate for the trials facing him. He is trying to shake his own shoulders and wake up spiritually. He gives us the answer. It is to find our strength in the Lord. JESUS IS OUR SALVATION.
Blessings dear hearts walk with God today and become a blessing!
