Here we are at the end of another week. God repeatedly told me to have another lighthouse devotional today. So here we go.
Today, take some time and realign yourself with your word for the year again. I know we’ve done this several times, but I think God’s trying to reiterate a point. We have to continually remind ourselves of what He has promised. If we don’t, then we could lose hope or forget it was His promise when it happens therefore robbing from Him the glory due His name.
So, look back to your word. Like a lighthouse, you will see it sending light into your heart and mind. Reflect on any fulfilled promises you’ve received this year already and thank God for those. Now, consider the remaining promises, and thank God for what He is going to do.
His words are true. He never fails.
Now I do want to take a moment to address one thing. Sometimes, when we’ve heard a promise from God, we then “decide” the best way for that to happen. Please be aware of this pitfall. Don’t allow your earthly understanding to box in a promise. He alone knows how and when He will fulfill His words. What a privilege it was when He released a glimpse of His workings into your heart! Remain in that state of awe and wonder as you yield the outcome to His hands alone. Work with Him when He calls you to and if He doesn’t, then simply rest in the promise.
Everyday all you need to do is, whatever He says. Nothing more and nothing less. It’s in His hands. So, yes, you should partner with Him. But no, you shouldn’t begin to grab from His hands.
Now take some time and breathe in His promises. Re-focus your gaze to His face and let the peace that surpasses all understanding wash away all fear and doubt. He Who promised is faithful.
“To whom will you compare Me? Or who is My equal?” says the Holy One. Lift your eyes and look to the heavens: Who created all these? He who brings out the starry host one by one, and calls them each by name. Because of His great power and mighty strength, not one of them is missing. Isaiah 40:25-26
For, “All men are like grass, and all their glory is like the flowers of the field; the grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of the Lord stands forever. 1 Peter 1:24-25
(Note: As we enter into this new week, I will begin a study of the names of God. Each day of next week will be a devotional on another name. I hope you enjoy it!)
