Psalm 150 | Praise the Lord. Praise God in his sanctuary; praise him in his mighty heavens. Praise him for his acts of power; praise him for his surpassing greatness. Praise him with the sounding of the trumpet, praise him with the harp and lyre, praise him with timbrel and dancing, praise him with the strings and pipe, praise him with the clash of cymbals, praise him with resounding cymbals. Let everything that has breath praise the Lord. Praise the Lord.
TAKE AWAY: AN ETERNITY OF PRAISE
I can’t believe that this is THE LAST DAY of this devotion! 😥 Part of me feels like this has been the longest year ever and part of me feels like it just flew by. The one thing I know for sure about this year is that this devotion was part of God’s plan for me. Through this devotion, God spoke to me and helped me to grow in my dependence upon Him. He allowed me to contrast my fears against His peace and blessed assurance.
I had thought about finding a new year-long devotion, but the choices are slim and don’t look like they would measure up to this one. And then my niece came to visit and I’m pretty sure that God gave me a new “devotion” of sorts. I have committed to calling her everyday and promised to love her unconditionally, regardless of her daily choices. She is open to God and has agreed to allow me to talk to her about Him. Yesterday, I sent her the song Reckless Love and she said she loved it. Yay!
PRAYER: Abba, You are truly amazing and I owe You an eternity of praise. Thank You for everything You’ve done for and in me this year. I look forward to whatever You have in store for me in 2019. Help me to FOCUS on You before anything else and to live like I’m loved. Guide me so I can be the hands and feet of Jesus. Give me Your words to speak to all I meet (and especially to Shawnee). Empty me of me so that I can be filled with Your Holy Spirit. I will love You forever and praise You until my last breath.
