October 12, 2012

BROADWAY BAPTIST CHURCH
In my daily Bible reading and devotions I came across Deuteronomy 24:18 “Thou shalt remember...the Lord thy God redeemed thee...” What a wonderful blessing it is to remember that it is God Who redeemed us. It is easy for us to remember the ruin, the bad, the difficult and the hard times in life, but how often do we pause and remember our redemption.

In doing so you can regain the joy of the Lord in the midst of your storms.
