Guilt Free

TODAY’S DAILY READING: 2 Samuel 7-8 & Psalm 37-38

Old Testament:
2 Samuel 7- So Far So Good

2 Samuel 7:18
“Then King David went in and sat before the Lord; and he said: ‘Who am I, O Lord God? And what is my house, that You have brought me this far?’”

Reflecting upon the Lord, and what He has done for you, is a valuable asset to your walk with God.

Psalm 38- Guilt Free

Psalm 38:4
