On this brand new day what do I most need?
I need to reaffirm my hope is in the Lord and not myself. With His help I can scale the wall before me.
You, O Lord, keep my lamp burning;
my God turns my darkness into light.
With your help I can advance against a troop;
with my God I can scale a wall. Psalm 18:28-29
Along with hope, I need remind myself of God’s faithfulness to His promises (His Word). I can trust in Him.
As the rain and the snow
come down from heaven,
and do not return to it
without watering the earth
and making it bud and flourish,
so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater,
so is my word that goes out from my mouth:
It will not return to me empty,
but will accomplish what I desire
and achieve the purpose for which I sent it. Isaiah 55:10-11
And most of all, I need to rest in His love for me.
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. John 3:16
This is what I need. This is what we are given in Jesus. Take a long deep drink of this “Living Water” on this new day.
