Fully Committed To You
“He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, he refreshes my soul. He guides me along the right paths for his name’s sake.”
– Psalm 23:2-3 (NIV)
This precious verse reminds me of another deep verse:
Eph 5: 26 “…to sanctify her, cleansing her by the washing with water through the word, and to present her to Himself as a glorious church, without stain or wrinkle or any such blemish, but holy and blameless.”
God’s commitment to us -His Church- is personal! He defends us, provides for us, rescues us, cleanses us, chastises us, for His Names Sake. His pride, integrity, and righteousness are at stake!
God is so personally vested in His Church that He committed His very Life to rescue us. His Name indeed is at stake.
No wonder Moses declares in Deuteronomy 9:28 “….the country from which you brought us will say, ‘Because the LORD was not able to take them into the land he had promised them, and because he hated them, he brought them out to put them to death in the wilderness.’
Beloved, this Great God is committed to you. Why are you afraid? He will take care of You. He is fully invested in your well being.
Take Him at His word.
Be convinced of His love for you and rest in that same love.
Then you will live in real peace.
In Jesus Name I declare; The Lord makes me lie down in green pastures. I am led beside still waters, my soul is refreshed. I am guided along the right path for Christ’s sake. I have the peace of God. Amen.
