The theme for Dr. David Jeremiah daily devotional for today September 22 2023 is ”A Safe Harbor” and it is a message highly recommended for today’s spiritual growth and upliftment.
SCRIPTURE: And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.-Romans 8:28.
Everything we know about love stems from God. The apostle John wrote that “God is love” and that “we love [God] because He first loved us” (1 John 4:8, 16, 19). Our love for God, as well as our love for others, is a response to the God of love who first loved us. As we abide in God’s love, we respond by obeying His command to love others (John 15:10).
Psalm 91 is a testament to God’s loving protection for those who love Him: “Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore I will deliver him” (verse 14). When we get to the New Testament, we find Paul writing that everything works for good for those who love God (Romans 8:28). And in the same chapter (a mirror of Psalm 91), Paul lists all the things in life that might separate us from God’s love and says none of them will (Romans 8:35-39)!
To be loved unconditionally—by God or by others—is a safe harbor. Dwell in God’s love today so you are equipped to love others.
We are called upon to reflect the love of God as much in trial as in tranquility.
