“They will be delivered over to the power of the sword; they will be a prey for foxes. But the king will rejoice in God; everyone who swears by Him will glory, for the mouths of those who speak lies will be stopped.” (Psalm 63:10-11)
Though the world rage and do its damage, yet the Lord will prevail. Nothing can thwart the plans of the Lord, for He alone is Sovereign. Come into the Lord’s presence and know the goodness of His surpassing mercy for those who love. To them He gives life and the promise is that all who lie, cheat, steal and kill shall pass away. Come to the Lord and know the true power of eternity.
Lord, all day long there are those who come against me with their wickedness. I too have succumbed and do not love my neighbor as myself. Guide me, O Lord, to live into the life to which You have called me that I would hold fast to the promises You give. Help me see more clearly that You are always there and that Your goodness shall always prevail. Let me seek You in every time of danger.
Lord Jesus, You know how the wicked of this age put You to death, yet it is what You came for. There is nothing they can do that You do not already know. Let me come into Your rest that I would walk humbly with You in the salvation You provide, knowing that only in You is there hope and a future. Guide me this day to celebrate Your goodness and Your coming for all who believe. Amen.
