Light for My Path Daily Devotion
Behold, the days are coming, declares the LORD, when I will fulfill the promise I made to the house of Israel and the house of Judah. In those days and at that time I will cause a righteous Branch to spring up for David, and he shall execute justice and righteousness in the land. In those days Judah will be saved, and Jerusalem will dwell securely. And this is the name by which it will be called: ‘The LORD is our righteousness.’ (Jeremiah 33:14-16 ESV)
Hymn ELH 121:1 Behold, a Branch Is Growing
Behold, a Branch is growing
Of loveliest form and grace,
As prophets sung, foreknowing;
It springs from Jesse’s race
And bears one little Flower
In midst of coldest winter,
At deepest midnight hour.
Heavenly Father, thank You for fulfilling Your promise to send a Savior. Through Your Son, our Savior, we obtain righteousness in Your sight by faith. Forgive my sins and help me to trust only in Jesus’ righteousness and not my own. In His name I pray. Amen.
