Prayer Devotional: Day 18

Why art thou cast down, O my soul? And why art thou disquieted in me? Hope thou in God: For I shall yet praise Him For the help of His countenance. – Psalm 42:5 KJV

Our relationship with the Lord is not a joint venture business relationship. We do not exchange our money and good works for salvation through Jesus Christ. Jesus gave all so that we would live. The exchange was not equal, and He was not coerced onto the Cross to atone for our sins. He sacrificed Himself for us because of pure, unselfish love. If only we could understand the magnitude of His sacrifice for us, we would not grumble about our day-to-day chores.

Our loving Heavenly Father wants to align us with the right people who can further His purpose for us. We never feel taken advantage of when Christ is at work in our lives. We never feel exploited. It is a relationship based on true love, for which we can be eternally grateful. We are blessed to know the Lord. Amen.
