Our Daily Elder Devotional
We claim no originality for these devotions. One of our elders searches various sources and finds a daily devotion. Consider this a gift from Clinton Avenue Reformed Church: www.clintonave.org.
Today’s devotional comes from “Every Day in His Presence” by Charles F. Stanley.
Revelation 19:16 New International Version (NIV)
16 On his robe and on his thigh he has this name written: king of kings and lord of lords.
It’s amazing how quickly life can change. Perhaps you’re looking back today and remembering all that’s occurred since the year began. Problems that consumed your heart in January are a distant memory, while blessings and opportunities that didn’t seem possible a few months ago have appeared by surprise.
If you focus on the ever-changing nature of life, you may feel insecure and discouraged about the future. But nothing will encourage you more than considering God’s absolute faithfulness through it all.
Though this year ends, He remains sovereign over all that exists. Allow this truth to comfort you as you face the unknowns ahead. No problem is too overwhelming for your heavenly Father. He is your perfect Leader, who guides you wisely to triumph no matter what happens. And His love for you never fails.
So as the New Year begins, rejoice that the One who’s always King will be always with you. And that’s a fact that will never change.
Lord, thank You for always being with me. Help me know you better in the year ahead, amen.
In His presence…welcome the new year with confidence.
