1 Samuel 17:1-31; Isaiah 56:9-57:21; Romans 3:1-31
Nevertheless I am continually with thee: thou hast holden me
by my right hand. Thou shalt guide me with thy counsel, and
afterward receive me to glory. Psalm 73:23-24
The word, nevertheless, indicates a change in one’s perspective.
It could be defined as, all-the-more. The psalmist, Asaph, had his
outlook adjusted and through his experience gives us all-the-more
reasons to walk with the Lord. We have: His presence—continually;
His protection—holding us by our right hand; and His guidance—
by His counsel through His Word. Though we may falter
and fail, nevertheless, each step brings us closer to the wonderful
conclusion that when life is over, He will receive us to glory.
That’s all-the-more reason to praise Him! —Rex Trogdon
Then, Lord, shall I fully know—
Not till then—how much I owe. —R. Murray McCheyne
