Today's Devotional Scripture

Today's Verse
My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of heart and my portion forever.
~Psalm 73:26

Thoughts on today's verse...
"My flesh and my heart may fail..." and sometimes they do. My flesh - as in the physical adversities and my heart - as in the spiritual rumblings. Sometimes I am weak, and that is when God is my strength. Just like our little children's' song "Jesus loves me, this I know... they are weak, but He is strong. Yes Jesus loves me, yes Jesus loves me, yes Jesus loves me, the Bible tells me so!"

There have actually been times in my life when I've simply had to sing that simple little children's' song to myself. And it is that simple - Jesus does love me! What a profound truth and such a humbling thought.

So, how about you? Is He your strength? Do you know that He loves you? Wonderful! Now, how about a rousing chorus of 'Jesus Loves Me!"

My prayer...
Abba, Daddy... You do love me, don't You? That is such an amazing thought, that the God of all creation could love me, yes, even me. I ask now, that in Your holiness, you surround me with Your love and Your peace. Fill me with Your Spirit as I go through my day's activities. May I be ever mindful that I belong to You. In Jesus' name ~Amen!

Yours, because we're His,
