Daily devotional: Purpose of salvation

Scripture
For you have delivered me from death and my feet from stumbling, that I may walk before God in the light of life.
Psalm 56:13 NIV

Observation
God has a reason for saving me from death and protecting me from stumbling. He has blessed me far beyond what I could have even hoped for or asked for. I have the privilege of walking in His life-giving light!

Application
Don't take this privilege for granted. Be thankful and live life to the fullest, walking closely with the Lord my God.

Prayer
Lord, You are so good. Your mercies are incredible, and Your favor is humbling. Thank you for blessing me with such abundant life. Thank you for not giving me the penalties I deserve but rather showering me with Your amazing grace. I want to fully experience all that You have in store for me. I want to know You deeply and be in close communion with You. Help me to always stay near to You, basking in Your light and Your presence. Help me not miss any opportunities You call me into, and make me an effective communicator of Your gospel and the great things You have done. Make me a servant leader after Your own heart.
