The theme for Dr. David Jeremiah daily devotional for today October 24 2023 is ”The Plain Promises” and it is a message highly recommended for today’s spiritual growth and upliftment.
2 Corinthians 1:20.
When the great pastor and hymnist Isaac Watts grew aged and sick, he had a visit from a friend. As they conversed, Watts spoke of once hearing a minister preach about “the same plain promises of the Gospel.” It was a phrase Watts liked. “And so I find it,” he told his friend. “They are the plain promises of the Gospel that are my support, and I bless God they are plain promises, which do not require much labour or pains to understand them, for I can do nothing now but look into my Bible for some promise to support me, and live upon that.”
God has given us His promises to use as a shepherd uses his rod and staff to support himself, as a house uses its foundation to remain solid, and as weary Jacob used a rock for a pillow and had dreams of heaven.
The Lord does not forget His promises. We can cling to them, but even better—we can rest in them. They will never fail.
I’ll read the histories of Thy love, and keep Thy laws in sight, while through the promises I rove, with ever fresh delight.
