Today in the 40 Day Devotional series, we read…
Day 9 – Value His Name
Read 1 Samuel 12:1-25
“Samuel replied, “Don’t be afraid. Even though you have committed all this evil, don’t turn away from following the LORD. Instead, worship the LORD with all your heart. Don’t turn away to follow worthless things that can’t profit or deliver you; they are worthless. The LORD will not abandon His people, because of His great name and because He has determined to make you His own people.” 1 Samuel 12:20-22 (HCSB)
The year 2008 changed the value of many things: houses, retirement accounts, salaries, etc. There will be long lasting effects on the companies and individuals impacted. Value is something that changes. What would it be like if something of great value never changed? The value of something that is priceless remains priceless throughout all eternity. Yes, each of us knows that we have a priceless Savior!
These verses in 1 Samuel remind us that even during times when we have sinned against the Lord, we must not turn from HIM. The name of the Lord has great VALUE for us. One of the ways we see the value of the Lord is He will not forsake His people. Not that we have that much value; but because His name and reputation is that valuable.
Do you see the value of the name of the LORD? Does your life reflect how much value you see in the Lord?
Pray today that the value of God’s name would be seen in your life so that a world may see HIM. Pray that your church would reflect the value of the name of the LORD.
