Devotion for 21 August


A brief prayer is offered that you can add to your daily prayers this week. The scripture is from our Sunday Service Bulletin for today.  We are continuing a summer sermon series on Psalms.
OT READING: Psalm 121 (English Standard Version)
I lift up my eyes to the hills.
    From where does my help come?
2 My help comes from the Lord,
    who made heaven and earth.
3 He will not let your foot be moved;
    he who keeps you will not slumber.
4 Behold, he who keeps Israel
    will neither slumber nor sleep.
5 The Lord is your keeper;
    the Lord is your shade on your right hand.
6 The sun shall not strike you by day,
    nor the moon by night.
7 The Lord will keep you from all evil;
    he will keep your life.
8 The Lord will keep
    your going out and your coming in
    from this time forth and forevermore.

Devotion: Don’t Look Down!!
Have you ever heard that old expression, “don’t look down”? People that are afraid of heights are told this so they that they can try to avoid the fear. I like the way this passage starts with that same advice: “I lift my eyes unto the hills”. We are all pilgrims on a journey to our heavenly home and this Psalm tells us to focus on the Lord. When the things that are happening here on earth fill you with disgust, disappointment, sadness, loneliness or just plain wear you out—stop looking down!! Get your eyes up toward home, Pilgrim! The Lord is looking out for you 24/7. You can do this!

We pray: Lord thank you for your everlasting love. Amen

Devotion for 7 August


A brief prayer is offered that you can add to your daily prayers this week. The scripture is from our Sunday Service Bulletin for today.  We are continuing a summer sermon series on Psalms.
OT READING: Psalm 95: 1-7 (English Standard Version)
Oh come, let us sing to the Lord; let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation!
2             Let us come into his presence with thanksgiving; let us make a joyful noise to him with songs of praise!
3             For the Lord is a great God, and a great King above all gods.
4             In his hand are the depths of the earth; the heights of the mountains are his also.
5             The sea is his, for he made it, and his hands formed the dry land.
6             Oh come, let us worship and bow down; let us kneel before the Lord, our Maker!
7             For he is our God, and we are the people of his pasture, and the sheep of his hand.
Devotion: Created to Worship
This Psalm assures people that God is King over all and talks about how we should worship Him.  Some of you may even recognize the lyrics of a current worship song embedded in this text. Our sermon theme was that we were created in His image and what a great worship experience we can have if we put no other gods before Him. I [and others have told me this] have noticed in my life that I am enjoying my worship experience more and more as I try to put Him first more and more. As a child, my parents were very insistent on me going to church with them and I don’t remember having as much joy worshipping as I do now.  I do not think it is an age thing, I think it is because I am walking closer to God now. How about trying a little harder to put God first in our lives this week? We can do it!

We pray: Lord you know me well, I want to put you first. Amen
