Wow, right? Why are we reading this scripture today? Seems a little dark. But it’s not. It’s really hope. How so? The devil likes to mess with my mind, how about you? He knows my weaknesses, what I struggle with. He likes to suggest to me that whatever situation I am in is going to be the end of me. And when he does, I like to suggest to him that I actually know for certain how this story ends…with him being thrown into the lake of fire and with me in eternity with my Father. And if I’m still here…not there…my story is not over yet. So, when the enemy tries to remind me of my past or my weaknesses, I remind him of his future. And then I remind myself of the fact that the Bible says God has a plan for me and it is good. It includes a future and a hope.

Jesus, you died so I could live. You defeated the enemy so I don’t have to. Today, I accept that I don’t have to. I accept that Your plans for me are good and I don’t have to worry about my future. I know how this story ends. Thank you for purchasing my salvation so I can be with You in eternity. My hope is in You.
Be Still –
Now just sit quietly with God, think about the scripture you read, re-read it if need be. Spend the rest of the 15 minutes just being with God.
