“Once God has spoken; twice I have heard this: that power belongs to God; and lovingkindness is Yours, O Lord, for You recompense a man according to his work.” (Psalm 62:11-12)
We vie for power. But all power and authority belong to God. Content is the one who knows this and rests in the Lord’s power. But His lovingkindness is yours and each may bask in His love and know that He loves all whom He has made. Trust in the One who holds all power and loves us, for He will accomplish what He has purposed. Know that the Lord is good and He will do what He promises.
Lord, help me stop playing the games of this world for power. It all belongs to You and the powerful of this world are just an illusion when compared to You. Guide me in Your ways that I may walk in them and help me live according to Your purposes. Keep my mind clear and my sight upon You that I would forever hold fast to Your promises. Let me be about Your business, doing Your will.
Lord Jesus, You demonstrated that You were not anxious for anything. You have declared that all authority is Yours. Help me simply take Your hand and walk with You all the days of my life, learning from You how to walk in the eternal way You have established. Guide me according to Your principles to be faithful to all that You command and help me walk in Your ways. Amen.
