A Daily Devotion for Tuesday, December 22


Deuteronomy 31:6,10-13,26-29


verse 6: “Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.”


I remember reading passages like this in the Old Testament when I was a kid and a young adult. It would make me want to ignore the OT because I “knew” this was not true. How could Moses say this? God clearly does not protect everyone from illness, injury, heartbreak, death. But what I didn’t understand was the truth of the rest of the statement. God never leaves us. He will never leave me, no matter what happens to me. And this time on earth, although it is all I know, is like an instant in eternity. God has promised us eternity with Him. And Jesus came to embody that love.


Holy Father, I am so very thankful to you for this life and the life to come. Amen


Becky, transforming
