For the Lord takes delight in his people; he crowns the humble with salvation.

Psalm 149:4

Thoughts on Today’s Verse…

Jesus, who left heaven and made himself a servant, did so to enable the last to be first, the servant to be greatest, and the least to be best. For ages, the arrogant, the abusive and the powerful have found it easy to reject the call of Christ — after all he died and they’re “important” and have no need for a Savior. But those who are humble find him to not only be Savior, but also Conqueror, King, and Friend.

My Prayer…

Precious Servant, Almighty King, thank you for coming to our world and serving us at great cost and showing us that we can reign with you. I look forward to the day every other knee will join mine as I bow before you as my Lord. Until that day, I pray that you will use me to bless those so often forgotten by our busy and glamour-intoxicated world. To our God be glory and praise for sending you, Jesus my Lord. In the holy name of Jesus I offer my praise. Amen.
