Come. Come to the well of God’s Word and draw from the source of hope, inspiration, and courage that only God can give us through the Love of Jesus Christ.

Listen

The works of the Lord are magnificent; they are treasured by all who desire them. God’s deeds are majestic and glorious. God’s righteousness stands forever. God is famous for his wondrous works. The Lord is full of mercy and compassion. God gives food to those who honor him. God remembers his covenant forever. God proclaimed his powerful deeds to his people and gave them what had belonged to other nations.

Psalm 111:2-6

Think

The Psalms are full of history as told through poetry. They serve as a reminder to the reader (the Israelites, you, and me) of what God has done in the past and where we come from. Righteousness… mercy… compassion… are but some of the words used to describe these past deeds of God.

But perhaps the most important words of this Psalm are in verse 5: “God remembers his covenant forever.” Unlike the other verses about what God has done, this verse is about what God does… God remembers. God’s actions in the past are because God remembers. God’s actions in the present are because God remembers. God’s actions in the future are because God remembers. And what is it that God remembers? God remembers the covenant, the promise made long ago that we belong to God and that God loves – you, me, all of us. Anchor yourself in this truth – that you belong to God and are loved.

Pray

God of the covenant, you have never wavered in your commitment to the promise you made. It is this promise that is the source of who I am and what I am to be. Move me to draw from this promise each and every day. Amen.

Go

Go. Go from the well of God’s Word and presence, knowing that what we draw there sustains us, renews us, and gives us life to be the people of God and Christ’s light in the world.
