Devotional for November 19

Blessed Assurance



Author: Fanny Crosby


Scripture: Hebrews 10:22 and Proverbs 3:5

Let us draw near to God with a sincere heart in full assurance of faith.

Trust in the Lord with all your heart.




Hymn lyrics:
Blessèd assurance, Jesus is mine!
O what a foretaste of glory divine!
Heir of salvation, purchase of God,
Born of His Spirit, washed in His blood.

Refrain
This is my story, this is my song,
Praising my Savior, all the day long;
This is my story, this is my song,
Praising my Savior, all the day long.

Perfect submission, perfect delight,
Visions of rapture now burst on my sight;
Angels descending bring from above
Echoes of mercy, whispers of love.

Refrain

Perfect submission, all is at rest
I in my Savior am happy and blest,
Watching and waiting, looking above,
Filled with His goodness, lost in His love.

Refrain



Today's thoughts:
Trusting in the Lord with all our heart turns our night to day. We feel His presence and know we are safe. No longer alone we are filled with His goodness, lost in His love. As we feel this love, we want to share it with others--that they may hear His echoes of mercy, whispers of love.
