Telling the story: A devotion for May 23, 2014

"Come and listen, all you who fear God; let me tell you what he has done for me." — Psalm 66:16 (NIV)

This psalm recounts all that God as seen God's people through — imprisonment, enslavement, conquered in war — but God has brought them "to a place of abundance" (verse 12b). Although we may not have experienced those particular difficulties we have gone through challenges where, once we are on the other side, we see the abundant life God has brought us to. Like the psalmist, this deliverance gives us the chance to tell others about God's goodness and mercy in our lives.

Prayer: Merciful God, give us the words to tell others of all you have done for us and the abundance you have brought us to. Amen.
