The LORD will fulfill [his purpose] for me; your love, O LORD, endures forever — do not abandon the works of your hands.

Psalm 138:8

Thoughts on Today’s Verse…

First there is conviction: the LORD will finish his work in us! (cf. Phili. 1:6). Second, there is declaration: the LORD’s love endures and doesn’t fail (cf. 1 Cor. 13:8). Finally, there is supplication: O Lord, don’t forget me, your creation (cf. Ps. 139:13-16). What beautiful balance for our walk with the Lord.

My Prayer…

Heavenly Father and LORD of all things, I am confident that you will accomplish your will and purpose in me. Seeing how you loved and worked through the centuries with the everyday people I find in Scripture, I know your love will last long after I am gone from this place. However, dear LORD, I do face some struggles and difficulties and I ask you to please intervene with your grace and power in my life. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
