You Are My Savior

Written by Gail Rodgers

Show me your ways, Lord, teach me your paths. Guide me in your truth and teach me, for you are God my Savior, and my hope is in you all day long.” Psalm 25:4-5

As we realize how vast, and BIG, how far beyond our understanding God is, we may need reminding that He really wants to be in personal relationship with us.

The God of Heaven sent His Son, Jesus, to span the gulf between His vastness and our sinful, unworthy selves. He waits for us to issue the invitation to make our hearts His dwelling place.

As He declares over you, “I AM GOD”!  He brings it up close and personal.

YOUR Savior.” In essence He is saying, “I am here to show you my way right where you walk; to teach you and to use my truth to guide you as you focus on me in this day. Let your confident expectation be in ME all day long. Keep your eyes in today and do not run ahead into tomorrow. I will walk with you and save you from despair and destruction, from a frantic life and even from yourself.”

When we open our hearts and lives to this very personal Savior He gives an overwhelming confident expectation in EACH day as we arise to say, “You are God, my Savior”!

Sit for a moment and repeat that great truth. Let it soak into your being.

“You are God my Savior, and my hope is in You all day long!”

Thank you Lord God, that You have saved me and I can be confident all day as You walk with me, guiding my way. Amen.

    Tina, it is wonderful that you want to be in daily devotion to the God of Heaven and His Son, Jesus. Let me suggest two approaches: first, on the internet, you can subscribe to daily devotions like that of Dr. Charles Stanley at http://www.intouch.org (that is more theological) but also check out Proverbs 31 Ministries at http://www.proverbs31.org/ that is directed more at women. If you prefer having a printed devotional, visit http://odb.org/subscriptions and request that they begin sending you a very long-standing devotional called Our Daily Bread.

    There are also a large number of “Bible studies” on the Power to Change website, for example, “Who is Jesus, really?” that you can find at http://powertochange.com/discover/faith/truefalse/#comment-8920223 and from that page, you can explore many relevant topics.

    May God bless your efforts to know Him and His Son Jesus, for He says “And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart.” (Jer 29:13)

    This devotion brought tears to my eyes. I am SO thankful for these devotions that just seem to “hit it on the nail” when it comes to what I’m struggling with each day. God is so good and so faithful for providing gifted writers such as Gail. Thank you so very very much.
