Psalm 84:2

 
“My heart and my flesh cry out for the living God!” Psalm 84:2

The desires of the heart are the best proofs of salvation; and if a man wishes to know whether he is really saved or not, he can very soon find out by putting his finger upon the pulse of his desires, for those are things that never can be counterfeit. 

You may counterfeit words; 

you may counterfeit actions; 

but you cannot counterfeit desires. 

Archibald Brown, “The Heart’s Cry after God” 1879

Built for God’s Purpose 

Today’s verse and devotional thoughts come from “The Gospel Daily“. 

 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. Psalm 139:14

Scientists can tell us about the intricacy of the make-up of the human body. With every system designed for an exact function, all designed to work together in perfect harmony. Each of us is unique, designed by God for a specific purpose. Only a loving Creator could do that. We should praise God because we are fearfully and wonderfully made by God. Each one of us designed just right, for a specific purpose, a specific role, in His plan. – Commentary by Mary Frances Morden

Today’s Prayer:

Creator, God, we praise You for creating us in Your image. We praise You for trusting us to do Your work and to follow the path You have designed for each one of us. Amen.
