“…who is this in royal robes, marching in his great strength? ‘It is I, the Lord, announcing your salvation! It is I, the Lord, who has the power to save!’ ” 63:1
Focus your attention on that last verse. It is I, the Lord, who has the power to save.
I’m asking myself these three questions:
1. What do I need saving from? Besides the general concept of needing to be rescued from my sin by God, what specifically do I need God to save me from? (Pridefulness. Sigh.)
2. How am I trying (and failing) to save myself? It’s important to recognize how you try to escape from things. We all do it.
3. What has God been mighty to save in your life?
Sometimes God takes away something we aren’t willing to give up. Other times he gifts us with something (or someone) we didn’t realize we needed.
Reflect on the three questions above and spend time thanking God for his faithfulness!
