Praise Him in My Obedience
Scripture Reading: Psalm 66:1-22
Key Verse: Psalm 66:12
You let men ride over our heads; we went through fire and water, but you brought us to a place of abundance.
The title for today’s devotional, “We’re Going,” is pointing to the fact that we are daily going to the place that God has picked out for us! What kind of a place does God pick out for His children? If you don’t know God—really know Him through a relationship with His Son Jesus—then you may have a negative answer. You may think that your destination, at the end of a bad day, is more bad stuff! As you deal with problems and setbacks, you may conclude that your destination will be on the minus side of life.
The Psalmist David has a clear view of where we are going! He stated it in our printed key verse for today: “You brought us to a place of abundance.” Before David got to this destination, that same verse tells us that God allowed “men to ride over our heads; we went through fire and water.” In other words, life was full of problems and struggles, but God was taking him to a place of abundance!
You are never stagnant if you are a Christ follower! You are going to a place of abundance. That place may be a place of “wisdom and knowledge” in abundance. That place may be a place that provides abundant material possessions. That place may be a place where you are full of joy and peace! Whatever you may be struggling with now, remember where God is leading you—to a place of abundance. Be obedient!
Father, I’ll say yes to your will and to your way today. I know you will lead me to your place of abundance! In Jesus’ name, amen.
