Psalm 95:1-2 (New Living Translation)
Come, let us sing to the Lord! Let us shout joyfully to the Rock of our salvation. Let us come to him with thanksgiving. Let us sing psalms of praise to him.
The Lord is our Rock of our salvation. It is only through Him that we can find forgiveness and healing. We are saved by His grace. Chosen by Him, drawn by Him, our eyes are open by Him, we are saved from ourselves by Him.
It is only in Him that true hope is found. The writer of the Psalm speaks of singing and bringing thanksgiving to the Lord. We do these things because of what the Lord has done for us. When we examine the word of God what we find is that He is always faithful. Even in the most difficult seasons, God is faithful. There is not a moment that He is not in control and there is not a moment that He is not providing every need.
In this world people look to different things for their comfort and safety. Some look to money, others like to human leaders or military might, but next to the Living God all of these things are nothing. All of them will pass away. But the Lord shall remain forever. Those who know Him personally know that our lives are in His hands. We know that He protects and watches over us. There are moments when the enemy will try to overwhelm us with fear and doubt, but when we recognize every word from the mouth of the enemy is a lie, we simply stop listening and paying attention.
May we remember that God has created all things. He holds all things together by His mighty power. He holds every heart beat in His hand. He provides the very air we breath. He holds every molecule in place. By His word all things were created and with one word He could destroy all things. This is the awesome God that we serve. In Christ we know Him personally and no matter how dark things become we have nothing to fear. For we are simply being prepared for His soon return and His coming Kingdom.
Father help me this day to trust you. Help me to let go of the fear, the worry, the doubt, and unbelief. Father help me to fix my heart upon you and know that in you my salvation is found. Thank you for saving me and bringing me into right relationship with you. Thank you for sending your Son Jesus to die in my place and take the punishment I deserve. Thank you for removing all of my sins and declaring me righteous before you. Father you are truly awesome and I thank you for how much you love me. In the name of Jesus, Amen!
