Whew! Yesterday was a BIG day. I was a speaker at an IBM Watson event in San Francisco and it was phenomenal. I hope to fill you in more about it later, but for now, I’ll include a link to a related press release at the end. (I don’t want to distract you in your devo time, so that’s why I’m saving it for the end.)
He has been faithful and He has been guiding me. While I was sitting in the front row, waiting for my time to speak, I was listening to the other speakers, but also asking Him to guide me in my speech. I was also giggling inside and thanking Him for the opportunity. It’s been an amazing ride.
So, this morning I can say I survived the big stage thanks to Him and I am ever so thankful. I love His reassurance again in my reading.
Here is what I heard in Psalm 25, using SOAP:
Scripture: Psalm 25: 5
Lead me in your truth and teach me,
for you are the God of my salvation;
for you I wait all the day long.
Please show me what to do, for you are truth. I trust you with the biggest thing, my eternal life, so I trust you with all else, too.
He is an amazing teacher and guide. God has our best interests at heart. Since I trust Him with the biggest thing, my salvation, then trusting in Him for everything else makes sense, right? If he can handle the big stuff, surely he can handle the smaller stuff— which I so often think is the big stuff. (Perspective, right?)
You are amazing, God.
Thank you for allowing me to hear you. Thank you for the many blessings you share with me. Please continue to guide me in your truth. I love listening to you and hearing from you. So often you just make me giggle as I see how you are in my life always. You amaze me.
You ARE the God of my salvation… and THAT is the big deal. All this other stuff, which seems so important to me now, is small potatoes to you, and I really appreciate you being present for all of these things, showing me the path to follow and giving me strength where I need it.
In your Son’s name I pray,
Soooooo here’s more info about what I was up to announcing yesterday, as explained in a press release from IBM. (That’s me in the photo and, of course, that’s my company mentioned in the Wine Recommendations section.)
