The Lord is my confidence!
Scripture reading for April 1st: Luke 21, Psalm 65, Proverbs 3
Key Scriptures: Luke 21:33-36 “”Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will not pass away. But watch yourselves lest your hearts be weighed down with dissipation and drunkenness and cares of this life, and that day come upon you suddenly like a trap. For it will come upon all who dwell on the face of the whole earth. But stay awake at all times, praying that you may have strength to escape all these things that are going to take place, and to stand before the Son of Man.””
Jesus was giving final instructions to His disciples. He emphasized that His word was eternal and dependable. He warned them about the traps that would catch men up in the last days: dissipation, drunkenness and the cares of life. He encouraged them to stay awake and pray in order to escape the traps and be able to stand before Him at the final judgment.
Faith Confession: I believe that Your Word is eternal and truth. I am awake through the infilling of the Holy Spirit and aware of Satan’s traps. I am trusting Jesus to give me grace to stand before Him when He returns.
Proverbs 3:25-26 “Do not be afraid of sudden terror or of the ruin of the wicked, when it comes, for the Lord will be your confidence and will keep your foot from being caught.”
