Daily Devotional – A Million Lights Shining for God

By on September 3, 2021
Daily Devotional

Our scripture for the Daily Devotional today is taken from Isaiah 42:5-9. God has called us to be with Him away from the worries of this world. He has called us out of this world and desires to raise us up toward His level and presence.

“This is what God the Lord says—
the Creator of the heavens, who stretches them out,
    who spreads out the earth with all that springs from it,
    who gives breath to its people,
    and life to those who walk on it:
“I, the Lord, have called you in righteousness;
    I will take hold of your hand.
I will keep you and will make you
    to be a covenant for the people
    and a light for the Gentiles,
to open eyes that are blind,
    to free captives from prison
    and to release from the dungeon those who sit in darkness.

“I am the Lord; that is my name!
    I will not yield my glory to another
    or my praise to idols.
See, the former things have taken place,
    and new things I declare;
before they spring into being
    I announce them to you.”

Staring at the million lights, I can hear God breathing

God created us primarily for a close and intimate relationship with Him. As we live in communion with Him, God will cover us with His righteousness and salvation. Not only will we absorb the heartbeat of God, but we would live in a covenant.

Living in a covenant that is based on love, obedience, and fear. The binding covenant would give us the freedom from all that ties down the other inhabitants of this world. We will live in peace and joy, spreading love and compassion with all that we meet.

Unfortunately we a born into sin and need to overcome the sins that try to claw us unto them. Although I am redeemed and saved from all my past, present, and future sins, God will use all former things to bring glory unto Himself. God has declared His blessings upon us, let us live as those blessed!

Let’s Pray

Dear Father, 

I crave and love Your presence. There is no greater place to find myself, than in Your presence breathing in Your word and love. Be glorified today as I breathe your life upon those around me.

In Jesus’ Name,

Amen
