“You made men ride over our heads; we went through fire and through water, yet You brought us out into a place of abundance. I shall come into Your house with burnt offerings; I shall pay You my vows,” (Psalm 66:12-13)
Things will happen in this life, things that we do not like or even at the time understand, but the Lord is still Sovereign. To whom will you give your loyalty? Will it be to yourself, another or the One who created all things. Loyalty does not depend upon circumstances for the righteous but upon truth which the Lord of Creation IS. Come to the Lord who is Sovereign over all.
Lord my loyalties do wander about and I am circumstantial in my alliances. Guide me to be loyal to truth and to You who is truth. Lead me into a life that recognizes the toils and troubles in this life but perseveres through all knowing that You are the One who is leading me. Guide me in Your truth that I would forever hold fast to what You have revealed once for all through Your Word.
Lord Jesus, You know how difficult it is to navigate through this world filled with rebellion. You have come to save me from myself and the other things that would get in the way of the simple truth that You alone are Lord and Savior. Guide me, Lord Jesus, through each of the difficulties that will come my way knowing that in You I have hope and a future. Amen.
