Set Apart

I am presently immersed in a 365-day Bible reading plan, courtesy of YouVersion. Yesterday’s Life Application Study Bible ® Devotion is based on Psalm 4:3 “Know that the Lord has set apart his faithful servant for himself; the Lord hears when I call to him.” A blessed reminder that no matter how unworthy of answered prayer I might feel, that doesn’t matter.

Not one iota.

Because I have the gift of salvation and God’s promise of grace, when I am faithful, the Lord hears when I call. Oh, I may not get the answer I want, but I rest in the assurance that His answer will be just what I need.  Which, more often than not, is a refreshed perspective:

Psalm 4:3 :: Look at your problems in the light of God's power...

If you’re not currently engaged in a devotional plan, I encourage you to get engaged. Make up a plan on your own, or take advantage of one of the awesome reading plans developed by YouVersion, Bible Gateway, or one of the other readily available, free online programs. Just search for “Bible reading plan” and you’ll be presented with several options. (I really like the universal availability and consistent reminders the YouVersion plans offer.)

I knew I’d be blessed, but as is God’s way, the blessings of daily Word immersion are much more than I imagined!
