I’m Tired, Exhausted, Wiped out.. and Enduring!

Devotional Thought of the Day

4  “Listen, O Israel! The LORD is our God, the LORD alone. 5  And you must love the LORD your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your strength. . Deuteronomy 6:4-5 (NLT)

999    And what is the secret of perseverance? Love. Fall in Love, and you will not leave Him!

it is the last thought listed in the book, “The Way”

It is one I needed to hear, especially given the last few weeks.  Full of things that I am praising God for, and things that challenge my faith.  Other things which are simply irritating, like that rock in your shoe that keeps rubbing and rubbing.

How we survive, how we endure, how we persevere is to keep our eyes on God.

To trust in Him to get us through, whether it is to a green pasture, or through the valley of the shadow of death, or just a meeting we didn’t anticipate going the way it did.

That is what this is all about.  He is our God, we are His.

Know He loves you and love Him… and He will ensure you endure.

About justifiedandsinner

I am a pastor of a Concordia Lutheran Church in Cerritos, California, where we rejoice in God's saving us from our sin, and the unrighteousness of the world. It is all about His work, the gift of salvation given to all who trust in Jesus Christ, and what He has done that is revealed in Scripture. God deserves all the glory, honor and praise, for He has rescued and redeemed His people.
