May the God of peace Himself sanctify you completely. May your whole spirit, soul, and body be preserved blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.
1 Thessalonians 5:23
“Sanctify” means “set apart” to represent Jesus to the world.
Today’s verse clearly explains that God is the only One who can sanctify you and that He wants to do so–if you will let Him. He will make you pure and holy through the blood of Jesus. So, when Jesus comes back, you will be able to stand before God and hear Him say, “Welcome home.”
When Moses led the Israelites across the Red Sea, he told them.
Don’t be afraid. Just stand still and watch the Lord rescue you today. The Egyptians you see today will never be seen again. The Lord Himself will fight for you. Just stay calm.
Exodus 14:13–14, NLT
So, take time to look for Jesus at the start of each day. See Him and put your trust in Him–let Him fight for you. So, you can enjoy the victory.
help me to have quiet time with You so I can stand still before You, and let You fight for me.
I pray in Jesus’ Name, Amen.
