D’s Devotional – “A Covenant Of Love”

D’s Devotional – “A Covenant Of Love”

1 Kings 8:23, “and said: ‘O Lord, God of Israel, there is no God like you in heaven above or on earth below-you who keep your covenant of love with your servants who continue wholeheartedly in your way.”

I was struck by the statement, “You who keep your covenant of love.”  The covenant between us and God is a covenant of love.  Do we understand that our relationship with God is to be a love relationship?  It is more than following a list of rules or just a knowledge of the existence of God, but it is a real love for God because He has a real love for us.  He has made a covenant of love with those that are in Christ Jesus.

Saturday’s Devotional – Dealing with Displeasure

Saturday’s Devotional – Dealing with Displeasure

 

1 Samuel 8:6, “But when they said, “Give us a king to lead us, “ this displeased Samuel; so he prayed to the Lord.”

 

I found this verse challenging because when something displeased Samuel he brought it to the Lord. That is the same place you and I should take things that displease us.  Normally we complain and tell our friends so they can be displeased with us, but Samuel just took it to the Lord.  You and I need to do the same thing.
