God is Our Assurance
Scripture: Genesis 49:24 But his bow remained steady,
his strong arms stayed limber,
because of the hand of the Mighty One of Jacob,
because of the Shepherd, the Rock of Israel,
Observation: Sometimes I wonder how I made it through this far in my life with all that I had tried to do to end it. I can’t believe some of the things that I accomplished and lives I was able to touch. I have no great abilities and by nature I’m very selfish yet God has used me. The answer is in this scripture, I didn’t do it but it was because of God the mighty One, because of my Sheppard and savior.
Application: Any time I do anything I need to give the glory to God and whenever I go out to do something I need to ask God for direction, realizing I can’t do anything on my own. If I go out to accomplish anything I need to be walking along side my Lord to make sure it is successful. I can do nothing apart from God, but I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
Prayer: My Lord be with me each day and direct my steps. Show me the things you desire of me and do them through your servant. May I touch the lives of others and may I say the things you want me to say that I may bring others closer to you. I love you Lord and I’m fully dependent of you.
