In this life there are many troubles. Where does your help come from? A reflection of Ps. 2: 7-9
Psalm 2: 7-9
I will proclaim the decree of the LORD: He said to me, "You are my Son; today I have become your Father. Ask of me, and I will make the nations your inheritance, the ends of the earth your possession. You will rule them with an iron scepter; you will dash them to pieces like pottery."
I remember the day I had invited Jesus to live within me; to be part of my life, in my heart. I heard the voice, much like what the psalmist expressed in these verses. God said to me, as a 10 to 11-year-old, “You are mine now.” I did not hear the voice as I would if I were talking to you. I heard the voice in my heart, in my mind. It was a pivotal moment in my life, although I did not fully understand it at that time. It has deep meaning for me. What do you remember of your salvation experience?
To draw closer to God, reflect on the following:
Write 3-5 scriptures down that inform your salvation through Jesus.
Write 3-5 scriptures down that affirm your salvation through Jesus.
Write your story of how you came to know Jesus.
The prayer for today:
Jesus, you are my Savior; my Lord and my King. Thank you for becoming sin and dying on the cross for me. In doing so, Jesus, you shattered my old life and washed me clean of sin. Therefore, I am a new creation in you. As I draw near to you, draw near to me. Strengthen me by your word that I may keep my focus on you. Amen.
