January 5 – Scripture of the Day


The scripture that spoke to me today was Genesis 15:1 which says: “Some time later, the Lord spoke to Abram in a vision and said to him, “Do not be afraid, Abram, for I will protect you, and your reward will be great.”

This is a message that applied to us today as well. In this passage we hear God telling Abram not to be afraid, and Jesus tells the disciples the same thing several times; for example, Luke 12:4.

Essentially, when God tells us not to be afraid, he is telling us to trust him.

And when we trust God, when we believe that Jesus is his son, our reward is indeed great.

For it is through faith in Jesus that our sins are forgiven, we are reconciled with God, and we receive everlasting life.
