Today's Daily Devotional

Shout for joy, O heavens; rejoice, O earth; burst into song, O mountains! For the Lord comforts His people. Isaiah 49:13

05/13/09 Think about the end of this verse for a moment. God comforts His people. Don’t just read this, really absorb it – His people. Are you one of “His people”? Do you call the King of the Universe “Father” or “Daddy” or “Papa”? Maybe “Abba”? If you do, you are one of the King’s kids! As a Christian, we are grafted into the vine that began as Israel. We are adopted into the most powerful family on the planet! We are the children of the mightiest King, the ultimate Judge, the most loving and compassionate Father. We are so deeply loved that Jesus spilled His blood just for us. We are so treasured that Christ took ALL of our sins upon Himself so that we would be right with our Father! We are so precious because He created us and we are His!
