Daily D – 1 Samuel 25:29

“Someone is pursuing you and intends to take your life. My lord’s life is tucked safely in the place where the LORD your God protects the living, but he is flinging away your enemies’ lives like stones from a sling.
1 SAMUEL 25:29 (CSB)

_____________________________________________________________________________

Howdy! We are on the Left Coast for a few days enjoying our 21-month-old granddaughter. The time change and travel will alter the delivery of these almost daily devotionals. Thank you for your flexibility.

Know this: Your God-honored life is tightly bound
in the bundle of God-protected life;
But the lives of your enemies will be hurled aside
as a stone is thrown from a sling.

The Message

Words of blessing are powerful gifts. They give courage. They provide strength. They lean us forward into adventures of God’s preparation and our wonder. Words fitly spoken make successful engagement possible where the only alternative is to shrink back and settle for less, for loss. 

Abigail is as beautiful a name and as gracious a woman as Nabal is harsh and hateful. She lived up to her name. He lived down to his. Her name means a father’s joy, the daughter he delights in. Nabal means fool. 

A beautiful woman, a delight to all who knew her, spoke words of a special future built upon the successes of the past. Verses 23-31 are stunningly full of meaning and feeling. Even at this distance in time and space, they stir our hearts. 

Who will you bless today? Who will you help win and succeed and live a life of blessing? Who will you empower with words of truth and life and hope?

Take this text and Ephesians 4:29 bundled together and make every word from your mouth a gift to those who hear.

Our Father, place your thoughts in my mind, your words in my mouth. Make my words a blessing to all who hear them. May they find encouragement, strength, and hope for all they face. Amen.

Daily D – Ezekiel 43:1-5

Ezekiel 43:1-5 He led me to the gate, the one that faces east, and I saw the glory of the God of Israel coming from the east. His voice sounded like the roar of a huge torrent, and the earth shone with his glory. The vision I saw was like the one I had seen when he came to destroy the city, and like the ones I had seen by the Chebar Canal. I fell facedown. The glory of the Lord entered the temple by way of the gate that faced east. Then the Spirit lifted me up and brought me to the inner court, and the glory of the Lord filled the temple.

Daily D – Ezekiel 37:3

Ezekiel 37:3 Then he said to me, “Son of man, can these bones live?” I replied, “Lord God, only you know.”

Daily D – Ezekiel 36:26-27

Ezekiel 36:26, 27 “I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; I will remove your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh. I will place my Spirit within you and cause you to follow my statutes and carefully observe my ordinances.”

Daily D – Psalm 40:6-8

Psalm 40:6-8
You do not delight in sacrifice and offering;
you open my ears to listen.
You do not ask for a whole burnt offering or a sin offering. Then I said, “See, I have come;
in the scroll it is written about me.
I delight to do your will, my God,
and your instruction is deep within me.”

Daily D – Psalm 39:4-5

Psalm 39:4, 5
“LORD, make me aware of my end
and the number of my days
so that I will know how short-lived I am.
In fact, you have made my days just inches long,
and my life span is as nothing to you.
Yes, every human being stands as only a vapor.”
Selah
