Jan. 24

Hello and thanks for joining in on to today’s daily devotion. Today is Sunday. January 24th. The 1st day of the Hebraic week.

Our verses today is Psalms 33:16-19.

Ps. 33:16
No king is saved by the size of his army; no warrior escapes by his great strength. 17 A horse is a vain hope for deliverance; despite all its great strength it cannot save. 18 But the eyes of YHWH are on those who fear him, on those whose hope is in his unfailing love, 19 to deliver them from death and keep them alive in famine.

We all want to think that we trust in YHWH. But the question is, “Is He the ONLY one we trust in?” Our verse says “No king is saved by the size of his army,” yet isn’t that the focus of a king for his safety? The size of his army?

There are so many things in life that can give us false hope. Though there is most likely nothing wrong in having these things, like a king with his army, we have to check ourselves and make sure that our ultimate hope is in YHWH. Otherwise, that which we put our hope in may prove to be 100% useless in the time of our need.

Examine your life today and see if there is anything that you may be placing more hope in compared to your hope that you are placing in YHWH.

Let this be a focus in your time of meditation throughout the day. Until tomorrow, shalom!
