Good news! Regardless of who you are – your background, your pedigree (or lack thereof), how much money you have (or lack thereof), your education (or lack of it), the color of your skin, whether you are male or female, etc. – The Lord makes it possible for you to live your life with a sense of Divine purpose! And additionally it is possible to know that He is involved in your life as Divine Advocate, Helper and Deliverer!
I’m rejoicing in that truth today… and was reminded of it as I read these wonderful words this morning from Psalm 138 during my time of “coffee with the Lord!”
“I give you thanks, O LORD, with my whole heart! Before the gods I sing your praise! I bow down toward your holy temple and give thanks to your name for your steadfast love and your faithfulness, for you have exalted above all things your name and your word. On the day I called, you answered me; my strength of soul you increased… For though the LORD is high, he regards the lowly, but the haughty he knows from afar. Though I walk in the midst of trouble, you preserve my life… Your right hand delivers me. The LORD will fulfill his purpose for me! Your steadfast love, O LORD, endures forever. Do not forsake the work of your hands.” (from Psalm 138 ESV)
