A Light for My Path Devotional

A Daily Meditation

JUDE 24-25
Now unto Him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of His glory with exceeding joy, to the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever.

I’ve just returned from a wonderful vacation in the Midwest, and as I reflect on all that transpired from the time we pulled out of the driveway in Pennsylvania until we returned nine days later, I’m amazed at the multitude of blessings our loving Heavenly Father showered upon us.  Safe travel, perfect weather, wonderful time with family and friends, worshiping with other believers and hearing from God’s Word, time to relax and be refreshed—the list is long and I truly praise God for each of these gifts.

One of my favorite hymns is TO GOD BE THE GLORY.  It’s an old song written by Fanny Crosby, but it’s something I can sing and meditate on every single day, because it reminds me that all of my blessings come because of God’s goodness and His graciousness to me as His child.  What an incredible gift it is to receive His gift of life and pardon from sin through the Lord Jesus Christ and belong to Him and daily walk with Him.  Please take a moment to read through this hymn and soak in the words.  May it become your daily meditation.

To God be the glory great things He hath done!
So loved He the world that He gave us His Son,
Who yielded His life an atonement for sin,
And opened the life gate that all may go in.

Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, let the earth hear His voice!
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, let the people rejoice!
O come to the Father thru Jesus the Son,
And give Him the glory – great things He hath done!

O perfect redemption, the purchase of blood,
To every believer the promise of God;
The vilest offender who truly believes,
That moment from Jesus a pardon receives.

Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, let the earth hear His voice!
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, let the people rejoice!
O come to the Father thru Jesus the Son,
And give Him the glory – great things He hath done!

Great things He hath taught us, great things He hath done,
And great our rejoicing through Jesus the Son;
But purer and higher, and greater will be
Our wonder, our transport, when Jesus we see.

Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, let the earth hear His voice!
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, let the people rejoice!
O come to the Father thru Jesus the Son,
And give Him the glory – great things He hath done!

Glorious Lord, I thank You for the gift of redemption through Jesus Christ my Lord.  May I always remember to praise and thank You for the bountiful blessings You send to me each day.
