your testimonies are my heritage forever, for they are the joy of my heart. i incline my heart to perform your statutes forever, to the end. [psalm 119:111-112]


where would you say your heritage is? in your past successes? in your past failures? in your family? what from your past defines you? no matter how good or bad, our past in Christ is defined by God’s testimonies – His word, His actions, and His will.

Lord, teach us to live in Your heritage. whether we look back on our family and history with pride or with regret, we find our identity in You and what You’ve done. that is who we are – we are Yours! teach our hearts to believe that anew today.
