The photo was taken a while back when I was walking from the parking lot at work. The office building is up on a hill and Lake Waco is at the bottom of the hill. The rainbow stretched from one end of Lake Waco to the next.
These things of God reward our lives and we reward God by praising him. Each day with God is rewarding as we see a sunrise and a sunset. It is in God that we believe, we are thankful for His provision, and grateful for all we receive.
Reading today in 1 Samuel 2:1-11, we note that the destiny of those faithful to God are assured of a life filled with joy but the fate of those against God is one of unfulfilled need, brokenness, and sadness. For the Lord provides food for the hungry and prosperity for the poor. The barren have children and those in need are provided for.
The adversaries to the Truth are headed towards ruin for the wages of sin is death but the destinies of the faithful ones in Christ are assured. Meditate on the gift of God which is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord (Romans 6:23). Invest in the Truth and earn an amazing return by receiving assurance of a destiny beyond the imagination.
Worship the Lord spontaneously like Hannah does in today’s passage because of grace, hope, and redemption. Each day, we get a new start because of grace and we can set out to capture more memories that reward our lives. At the same time, we reward God by praising him.
This day with You Lord, we get a new start. Some days we miss the mark but with grace, we receive a spark towards a better day today. Our destiny is assured and we meditate on Your Truth because it rewards us with many blessings along the way. Lord … You are in control and You never fail. Amen
