Today’s reading is in Psalm 105. It is about the Lord’s wonderful work on behalf of Israel. In it is reference to the cloud of covering that the Lord gave the Israelites to shelter them from the hot sun during the day and the fire that He gave for light at night as they wondered in the wilderness.
From this passage we are reminded of the need to be thankful for the grace that has been bestowed upon us through the covering we have in the blood of Jesus. He is now giving us the ‘protection by day‘ and ‘light by night‘ that we need.
–Saves us… “For by grace we are saved through faith, it is the gift of God.”
–Gives us strength... “And He said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for My strength is made perfect in weakness“. 2 Corinthians 12:9
–Guides us... “I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go: I will guide you with my eye“. Psalm 32:8
–Provides for us… “But my God shall supply all your needs according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:19
–Renews us… “but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day.” 2 Corinthians 4:16
–Gives us rest… “My presence will go with you and I will give you rest.” Exodus 33:14
–Lights our path… “the LORD my God will enlighten my darkness,” Psalm 18:28.
My prayer for you this week: Thank-you gracious and mighty God for your ‘protecting’ cover by day and the ‘directing’ fire by night. And also for your ‘providing’ loving arms that carry us all the time. In Jesus name, amen. Psalm 105:39
