“The Lord gives strength to his people; the Lord blesses his people with peace.” Psalm 29:11 (NIV)
The last three days we have read of promises from God given to us in the book of Psalms. The promise we received from yesterday’s scripture verse is underscored in the one we have for you today. There are two promises in this verse. They are both promises for God’s own people. If you have accepted God’s Son, Jesus Christ as your Savior you belong to Him and these promises are for you. Yes, God does promise to give us strength and we need strength each day to live for God as we should. When we face difficult situations we need God’s strength and that’s what he promises. The other promise is for a blessing of peace. Doesn’t that sound good to you? Isn’t that what we all need and want every day? Strength and peace – it’s a promise of a wonderful blessing we hope you are experiencing today.
