An Encouraging Word

 

 

 
 

Draw Near


“What shall I render unto the Lord...?” Psalms 116:12

In todays text, David gives us a fresh perspective on how to begin our new year and decade.  Instead of asking: what do I want to accomplish, or what do I want from the Lord, he simply asks, I wonder what the Lord would like?  

The Lord had rescued David many times in the past, but he had taken the Lord for granted.  In our text today David pauses and reflects on what the Lord had done for Him.  It is through his time of reflection and evaluation that David  comes to his conclusion: “I’ll take the cup of salvation, call upon the name of the Lord, and pay my vows unto the Lord....” Psalms 116:13-14  

By taking the cup of salvation, the priest would pour out a sacrifice of substance to the Lord.  I believe that David is encouraging us to pour ourselves out to the Lord, call upon the name of the Lord, and pay the vows that we have already made to Him.  Perhaps you find yourself in a similar situation.  God has been so good to you; however, you have not stopped to ask Him, “what do you want from me Lord?”  

As I get older, I have come to realize,  it’s not the price of the gift, but the value of the gift that is most important. I believe the greatest gift of value that we can give our Lord, Jesus Christ, is ourselves.  God’s greatest desire is to fellowship with you and you with Him. Today, let’s give the Lord what He wants! 

 

“Draw near to God and He will draw near to you….”  James 4:8

HAPPY NEW YEAR AND DECADE!
