Pray

Devotional

“Let the beloved of the Lord rest secure in him, for he shields him all day long, and the one the Lord loves rests between his shoulders.”

Deuteronomy 33:12

 

God cares for you and about you. All day long He is taking the time to shield you, to pour His love on you. Our society is constantly “go, go, go. If you stop, you’re weak. Go faster, get stronger, do more, gain more”. But God offers us a different way of life. A different pace. We have the opportunity to rest secure in Him. Will you take it?

In 1 Corinthians, chapter 6, verses 19-20, it says:
Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies.

Let's pray.
