But the one who trusts in the Eternal is wrapped tightly in His gracious love. Psalm 32:10
Monday Motivation: Greetings, Friends; I trust you are well and refreshed from the weekend. The year is almost over, yet I still believe in the eleventh-hour miracles. It’s not over till Christ says it’s over.
Wrapped Tightly In His Gracious Love
The word of encouragement for this day is taken from Psalms, chapter 32, verse 10. It says, “but loving-kindness surrounds the one who trusts in Adonai.” meaning those who trust and rely on God wholeheartedly will obtain mercy in the sight of God; even if they do not deserve it, God will offer forgiveness for their sins and show compassion towards them. Verse six of the same Psalm serves as an invitation to all the people who are the righteousness of God to call upon Him ahead of the storms of life.
So let everyone who is godly pray to You in a time when You may be found.
When great floodwaters rise, they will not reach him. You are my hiding place—You will protect me from distress. You surround me with songs of deliverance. Ps.32:6-7
The above-mentioned scripture comes with promises of protection amid challenging times. The time spent in the presence of God in prayer, praise, and worship is never in vain. They will speak for you when are cannot; they will come as a memorial before God and will move Him to do good in your life, even when you did not ask for it, Acts 10. The gracious love of God will locate you because you trust in Him and take the time to spend in His presence.
“You will keep in perfect and constant peace the one whose mind is steadfast [that is, committed and focused on You—in both inclination and character] Because he trusts and takes refuge in You [with hope and confident expectation]. Isaiah 26:3
There are so many promises and blessings that come with trusting God as we read the above-mentioned scriptures. He says in His word that He will keep us in perfect peace tightly wrapped in His gracious love, protected from all the work of the enemy. The enemy might try, and at times it might seem like he is winning, but God says He will deliver us because He surrounds us with mercy and songs of deliverance.
If right now, you are well and in a good position to call on the Lord; may I encourage you to reach out to Him in prayer, praise and worship, and adoration, for when you are at the point of despair, your faith and trust in God will speak for you. He will come and wrap you tightly with His unfailing love and heal you, restore you and save you and place you on a path full of light and His endless mercy.
Today serves as an invitation to take care of our relationship with God because the same fruits of this relationship come through for us when we least expect it. I hope you found encouragement to continue to reach out to Christ. One of the reasons He died for you was to have a loving relationship with you that comes with so many rewards.
