{ Day 87 }

Until the day breaks and the shadows flee, I will go to the mountain of myrrh and to the hill of incense. All beautiful you are, my darling; there is no flaw in you. —Song of Solomon 4:6-7

We see our failures and shortcomings, and we may automatically think that God is accusing and condemning us. The devil has deceived us, leading us to attribute to God what is true of himself. Satan, not God, is the accuser of the brethren. God is our affirmer—our encourager. He believes in our sincere desires to obey Him more than we do and calls us forth in ways we would never dream. He says, "I love you! I have great affection for you! I will transform a fervent, immature maiden into My reigning, mature bride."

{ PRAYER STARTER }

When my failures and shortcoming seem to overcome me, Lord, give me the courage to recognize the work of the accuser. You do not accuse me, Lord, but You affirm my desire to obey You, and You call me forth into my destiny in You.

Christ sees our desire for obedience
even when it is only in seed form in our hearts.
