“Be gracious to me, O God, be gracious to me, for my soul takes refuge in You; and in the shadow of Your wings I will take refuge until destruction passes by. I will cry to God Most High, to God who accomplishes all things for me.” (Psalm 57:1-2)
Grace is unmerited favor, a gift that the Lord grants to those who turn to Him. We all need grace, for we all have fallen short of the glory of the Lord. Cry out to the Lord who hears you and knows all about what He has made. Know that in Him you can take refuge and He will cover you in the shadow of His wing. The Lord is more than able to accomplish your salvation.
Lord, in times of trouble I look to You, but often in times of plenty, I simply go my way and ignore You. Help me realize that this age is a time of great trouble and turmoil. Lead me into the truth of Your presence that I would know that in You I have an eternal hope and a future. Guide me in Your will to walk in Your ways all the days of my life, knowing in You alone can I hope.
Christ, the Savior of the World, You have come to be the refuge for all. Lead me in the grace You have purchased by Your own blood that I may forever walk in the mercy of the Father. Destruction has already come upon the world, but in You I need not fear anything that comes. Lead me, O Lord, to stand by Your side and walk where You direct, knowing that only in You will I be made complete. Amen.
