Daily Readings – Forever and ever!

Day 1782: Just blinked and we’re over half way through August already!

Scripture: For this is God, our God forever and ever; He will be our guide even to death. Psalm 48:14

Thoughts/questions: I’ve had guides take me through difficult terrain, and eventually we’d get to a spot that was well worth the effort. Then we’d go on facing more challenges, only to be rewarded by another beautiful sight.

God’s guidance is similar. Sometimes our challenges don’t seem to have any redeeming value, but trusting our heavenly guide also eventually brings us to His destination for us! Can we trust God, our guide, during these times???

Then death is the last stop our guide brings us to, and we are extracted from earth and INTO THE ARMS OF JESUS! Our final destination and what a day that will be! But first our guide has many, many places for us to go and people for us to influence! In humility, let us fiercely resolve to follow our guide in service of others until He finally takes us to Jesus!!!

Suggested prayer: Father Guide, my trail is often long and difficult. Help me to trust You completely for now and forever . . .
