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, NIV)
Lord, I know You will do what You have promised. Lord, Your faithful love will last forever. You are the One who made us, so don’t leave us! – (Psalm 138:8, ERV)
David understood the purposes and promises of God in a person’s life. Additionally, he knew what it was to wait and grow in understanding of God’s faithfulness and love in the time between the promise spoken and the fulfillment. Even David, who had seen the faithfulness of God, continued to call and Him and ask God to remain with him in all that he was called to do. It is no different for us today. God has created us each with purpose, and speaks promises over our lives. He is faithful to be present, and He prepares our hearts and minds as we continue to move forward toward the fulfillment. We too, can cry out, asking the Lord to make Himself known, and to continue to work in us and through us as we walk in His way. May we trust in His unfailing love and the permanence of His promises, as we continue to walk forward in the purpose to which we are called.
His purpose for me;
His love will endure,
He won’t abandon,
the work of His hands;
He’ll do what He’s said,
to fulfill His plans.
May we call on Him,
and let trust remain;
in Him who’s faithful,
to make our path plain.
Dear Heavenly Father, thank You that You will fulfill Your purpose for me and that Your love endures forever. Thank You that You never abandon the work of Your hands. Forgive us for feeling like we have been abandoned when things don’t seem to go the way we think that they ought to, and help us to trust You more, so that we would place all things in Your hands, regardless of how they appear. Lead us to love others in such a way, that they too may come to know Your mercy and grace. May many choose to walk in Your way. Be glorified O God, as we trust in You, even when we cannot see what You are doing. Amen.
Let the heavens rejoice, let the earth be glad. – 1 Chronicles 16:31
