Philippians 3:13-14 NKJV — Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.
I find encouragement in these words.
There is much about life and God’s Word I don’t know, but this I do understand.
This life is not all there is.
Jesus Christ has saved my soul from sin and death, and some blessed day, I’ll be with Him.
Thus, I can find great joy in these words which fuel my perspective to look up, look forward to the return of Christ or my release from this physical tent.
Do you have this same assurance?
Is your soul safe with the Lord?
Philippians 4:4 NKJV — Rejoice in the Lord always. Again I will say, rejoice!
Acts 16:30-31 NKJV — And he brought them out and said, “Sirs, what must I do to be saved?” So they said, “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved, you and your household.”
1 John 1:7-10 NKJV — But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin. If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say that we have not sinned, we make Him a liar, and His word is not in us.
Let us, this day, rejoice in the salvation of the Lord our God, sing praises to Him and bless His holy name!
Dear Lord Jesus,
Thank You for Your Word. Thank You so much for salvation and the security of knowing my soul is safe with You. Lord Jesus, thank You for Your Word of truth which is a lamp to my feet and bread to my soul. Lord, thank You for Your unending love and incredible mercy. Lord Jesus, please help me to live unto You alone this day, not walking in fear, not being tripped up by the enemy, not speaking words of worthlessness, but wholly leaning upon Your Word, Your truth, and walking in Your ways. Lord Jesus, please continue to touch those who need You so desperately, bringing comfort, peace, salvation, and healing to our broken world. Thank You. Amen.
