Friday Jeremiah 33:14-16

 

“Behold, the days are coming, says the LORD, when I will fulfil 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 forth 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.’

 

Father, we cannot save ourselves. We can only be saved by the promises you have given us. Help us, by faith, to hold on to your greatest promise that Jesus is our righteousness. Amen.
