David Jeremiah Devotional February 24 2022 :
For this God is our God for ever and ever; he will be our guide even to the end.
Psalm 48:14, NIV
Recommended Reading: Psalm 48
The great German Christian philanthropist, George Müller wrote this about his ministry to orphans: “The Lord led me to this work. He gave me faith for it. He sustained my faith for it to the end. He provided the means. He remarkably helped me through one difficulty after the other. Had he not upheld me in the midst of them all, I should have been surely overwhelmed by them.”
Our God is the same yesterday, today, and forever. He leads us in our daily lives and into our work for Him. When making any decision, it’s important to remember God’s faithfulness in the past, His presence now, and His promises for the future.
When looking backward, don’t dwell on your own failures and mistakes. They have been swallowed up in His grace. Recall His faithfulness! When looking around you, don’t be overwhelmed by the difficulties. Remember His presence! When looking ahead, don’t be afraid of the future. Revel in His promises!
He who had blessed you is with you, and He will guide you to the end.
If the Holy Spirit guides us, he will do it according to the Scriptures, and never contrary to them.
