Read Psalm 89:19-26
Once you spoke in a vision, to your faithful people you said:
"I have bestowed strength on
a warrior; I have raised up a young man from among the people. I have found David my servant; with my sacred oil I have anointed him."
Salvation for the world is bound up in this concept of covenant and the promise God made to King David. That's what this Psalm is all about. It reminds us of a life-giving truth: God the Father made an agreement with humanity to provide a way out of his wrath by the life of his Son, Jesus. Covenant...that's a word that we as disciples of Jesus need to never forget!
God our Father, Please help us to remember your promises to us, and to be thankful for your gifts every day. Bless us, we pray, as we look forward to celebrating the birth of your son, our Savior, Jesus Christ. Amen
