Sustained & Upheld Part One

Note: at the advice of a dear friend I have broken up my devotionals into smaller increments for easier assimilation and implementation.

Psalm 55:22 says, “Cast your burden on the Lord, and He shall sustain you; He shall never permit the righteous to be moved.” Strong’s definition for sustained is: to maintain, nourish, provide food, bear, hold up, protect, support, defend; to supply the means necessary for living.”

2 Peter 1:3 says, “As His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue.” All means everything without exception. 

I don’t need to explain how relationships get disconnected. I think every living person has experienced it at some time in their lives. We may feel slighted, yet the person was totally unaware that we felt that way. Their mind was on their own problems, and our connection at the moment was not heart to heart.

God’s heart is always an open line for communication. What about your heart? Are you engaged through your heart in your thoughts and conversations with Him? At times we may not feel connected, yet we always are from His part. 

Think back to the parable of the lost son. Luke 15:19 recorded his inner dialogue of what he would say when he went back. It says, “…I am no longer worthy to be called your son. Make me like one of your hired servants.”
