Day 209 – July 28, 2021
Scriptures 1 Chronicles 16, Luke 16, Psalm 62
“One thing God has spoken, two things I have heard: “Power belongs to you, God, and with you, Lord, is unfailing love”; and, “You reward everyone according to what they have done.”” (Psalm 62:11–12, TNIV)
Power belongs to God.
Unfailing love is with the Lord.
He will reward everyone according to what they have done.
As we examine our lives, this verse offers us an important encouragement and a call to repentance.
God has the ultimate power - that is his strength and his authority. He has the strength to move mountains and the authority to draw up the plans.
We are also encouraged that there is unfailing Love in the Lord. His love never fails. We need that encouragement, don’t we? To know that God is patient and Kind, that his love never fails.
And finally, “He will reward everyone according to what they have done.” We look at that and think perhaps fearfully for ourselves. But I’m learning to think about it like this: God will right the wrongs of the world. God will bring about justice and bring peace. He will right the world. God has the power. His love never fails. The world will be made right.
Trust in the Lord!
