So I will sing praise to Your name forever, that I may daily perform my vows. Psalm 61:8 NKJV
David declared he would sing praise to God forever!
I will sing praise to God forever.
How can I be sure I will sing praise to God forever? I will sing praise to God forever because it is the reason The Lord created me.
Today is one of those days when I wonder why I write a daily devotional. How did I ever get in so far over my head? Why would I put myself in a position to make a fool of myself?
I am a fool for Christ! I am foolish enough to believe Jesus can and will use me!
God can use anyone anyway He chooses. God created us with natural gifts and talents. He created us to accomplish good works through faith in Jesus Christ.
We know the love of God because Jesus revealed Himself to us. We love Him because He gave us the faith to love Him. What the world calls foolishness God calls faith!
God’s love for you is real and unconditional. He is pleased when you step out in faith because you love Jesus.
You do not need to make or keep vows to earn God’s love and favor. Nothing will ever stop Jesus from looking upon you with favor. Nothing you can do will ever stop Jesus from loving you!
I send out this devotional despite my feelings of inadequacy and insecurity. My faith is not in what I can do. My faith is in what Jesus has already done. My faith is in what God is doing. My faith is in what God will do in the future!
Jesus wants you to step out in faith even if you get in over your head. Jesus wants you to trust Him enough to step out in faith even if you feel foolish doing it. Jesus wants you to be foolish enough to believe He can use you anyway He chooses to use you!
God will never be disappointed by anything you do through faith in Jesus!
Step out in faith. Serve Jesus the way He is calling you to serve Him. Don’t do it out of guilt or condemnation. Don’t do it because you have made a vow when you desperately needed help. Serve Jesus because you love Him!
Sing praises to the name of Jesus. It is the reason The Lord created you. Your Heavenly Father will be pleased if you step out in faith to serve Jesus because you love Him!
