The Lord can use this morning’s devotion to encourage anybody who is in the midst of trials and tribulations. Yesterday, you may have been ready to climb a mountain, but today, you are fighting for joy and for explanations for your difficulties. We are encouraged this morning to trust in our God who is sovereign over every detail of our lives. Spurgeon says that even our sorrows are a part of His plan. When we mediate on God’s power over all things and God’s unending love for His people, we are encouraged and the weight of our fear is lightened. May God help us to trust Him and depend upon Him as we find ourselves in the midst of the fire.
In this evening’s devotion, we are encouraged to look upon Christ, meditate upon His perfections, and find ourselves in a state of worship and awe.
“Is it not unspeakably delightful to view the Saviour in all His offices, and to perceive Him matchless in each?—to shift the kaleidoscope, as it were, and to find fresh combinations of peerless graces?”
May God help us today to look upon all of the offices, attributes, or perfections of Christ and find unspeakable delight. As I think on the character of God at this moment…there is unspeakable joy in that I know Him and have been made His beloved. I pray that we all might have several moments throughout this day to find ourselves in a place of unspeakable delight!
