The wicked will come to nothing though it be a generation or even many generations before their deeds are remembered no more. Do not spend your energy on those who will perish, but keep your eye on the prize of eternity which the Lord offers to the faithful. Know that He is mighty to save and will lead you in all of your ways in His path of righteousness.
Lord, help me see through the confusion of this age the goodness that You offer before me. Help me now and always to see clearly the truth You have revealed once for all. Guide me in the way of truth that I may walk now and always in Your ways. Help me to see Your goodness and know that in You is the hope for all in this age of sin. May I now and always be guided by Your salvation.
Lord Jesus, by Your grace alone is there hope and a future for all who are captives in this age of sin. Guide me now and always to see the hope of glory You offer through forgiveness. Lead me to see in You alone my guidance through everything that will come. Help me now and always to live with You as my example, by Your grace able to meet all that will come this and every day. Amen.
