Day 21: December 4, 2021
Read: Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever. – Hebrews 13:8
Respond: Eternal God, You are from everlasting to everlasting. You are Immutable—You do not change. Jesus is unchanging. It isn’t possible for You or Your Son to change. To alter Your attributes would contradict Your character. Your attitude toward me and all those who know and love You do not change either. Even though my attitudes change frequently, Yours does not. I’m so glad that Your persistent tenderness binds my heart to You forever.
Read: And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ. – Philippians 1:6
Respond: Thank You that what You start, You complete. In fact, You don’t ever stop working in the lives of those You love until the day of Christ Jesus when we will all bow before You in heaven and worship You. Even when I see the flaws in my life, the sin, the weakness, the brokenness, I know You are working in and through my life to heal me from my frailties because You have said in Your Word that You will bring me to completion. Thank You, Father.
Read: Now to him who is able to keep you from stumbling and to present you blameless before the presence of his glory with great joy, to the only God, our Savior, through Jesus Christ our Lord, be glory, majesty, dominion, and authority, before all time and now and forever. Amen. – Jude 24-25
Respond: Bless You, Father, for keeping me from stumbling. Thank You that through Jesus I can be presented as blameless before You. This gives me great joy. All praise, glory, majesty, dominion, and authority are Yours, Lord Jesus now and forever. Amen.
Talk to God today about the work He is doing in your life to bring you to full completion in Jesus.
