Reference Passages #1 Matthew 16: 18 [NKJV] …
18 “…on this rock I will build My church, and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it.
Reference Passages #2 Hebrews 6: 19-20 [NKJV] …
19 This hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and steadfast, and which enters the Presence behind the veil, 20 where the forerunner has entered for us, even Jesus, having become High Priest forever according to the order of Melchizedek.
My Journal for Today: Today’s Our Daily Bread helped me to realize, recognize, and remember that Jesus is the Rock of my salvation; and no matter what happens in my life I can know that He will prevail … just as our Lord promised His chosen ones in the Old Testament (see the Highlight passages) and as Jesus promised His disciples (see Reference passages).
Our Lord is our blessed - and only - assurance. And I don’t have to write a long journal entry here to claim, hold on to, and share this truth with others here.
Our (my) only question for reflection and meditation today is … “DO WE BELIEVE THESE TRUTHS?!!”
My Prayer for Today … Lord, You are my blessed assurance … FOREVER!! … Amen
