March 30 Devotional

As I sit in the church office I am so aware of the quiet and yet remembering the sweet sounds of fellowship that have happened and will happen again in this beautiful place. I know we all have been hopeful that this would all come to an end soon, but it now will be stretched to another month of staying at home safe! As I was reading the Psalms these verses popped out:

"His pleasure is not in the strength of the horse, nor his delight in the legs of a man; the LORD delights in those who fear him, who put their hope in his unfailing love." Psalm 147:10-11 (NIV)

There are a number of things that we can learn through this time of separation. Our first and foremost love is our precious Savior, Jesus. Our eyes and heart are to be fixed on Him, the Author and Perfecter of our faith. We are coming to understand more fully the preciousness of fellowship which can often be taken for granted but now after this extended time of being apart, our love for one another will be even greater--separation makes the heart grow fonder? I think so. We can also learn during this time that we need to take a greater personal effort to seek the Lord daily, to spend time in prayer and reading the Bible to keep our faith strong and our prayer life vibrant. If we will do these things, when we come together it will be more precious than we could have ever imagined.

Keep your hope fixed on Jesus!
