Daily Devotion

“the LORD your God, he is God in the heavens above and on the earth beneath.” – Joshua 2:11. (Read the larger context in Joshua 2)

If the God of Israel is the omnipotent God of the heavens and the earth, then our only hope for safety is from his righteous wrath is in Him. that is why the appropriate response to the fear we have of God is to run to Him in faith, renouncing our sins and trusting in Christ alone (John 14:6, 1 John 1:8-9). This is something we must do not only at the start of our christian life, but we must daily turn from sin and believe in the Lord Jesus Christ.

Prayer: (Let this hymn be your prayer – My Hope is Built on Nothing Less)

christ the solid rock

My hope is built on nothing less
Than Jesus Christ, my righteousness;
I dare not trust the sweetest frame,
But wholly lean on Jesus’ name.

On Christ, the solid Rock, I stand;
All other ground is sinking sand,
All other ground is sinking sand.

When darkness veils His lovely face,
I rest on His unchanging grace;
In every high and stormy gale,
My anchor holds within the veil.

His oath, His covenant, His blood,
Support me in the whelming flood;
When all around my soul gives way,
He then is all my hope and stay.

When He shall come with trumpet sound,
Oh, may I then in Him be found;
In Him, my righteousness, alone,
Faultless to stand before the throne.

On Christ, the solid Rock, I stand;
All other ground is sinking sand,
All other ground is sinking sand.
