Psalm 7; Esther 2:1-18; 2 Timothy 2:8-13

All three passages speak to us about how we can trust in the Lord God for our care, security, and salvation. The Lord comes through for his people.

In Psalm 7, we learn that David takes “refuge in” God. He trusts the Lord to protect him from all the enemies who pursue him. We too, can pray to God for deliverance from whatever seeks to undo us in life.

In Esther 2, we see how God works in and through a most challenging situation for his people, while at work through those who govern. God works to save and sustain his people. God is at work in our world at all times and we need eyes of faith to see what the Lord is doing.

In II Timothy 2:8-13, we are encouraged to remember the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ through which we are saved. Jesus has lived for us, died for us, was resurrected, and reigns for us. “If we endure, [in faith in him] we will also reign with him.” Jesus remains faithful, always!

Prayer: Redeeming and faithful God, we are grateful for how you have loved us so deeply in and through the Lord Jesus Christ and how you love us still. Hear our prayers of Thanksgiving this day for your gracious love. We make this prayer in Jesus name, Amen.
