Look over history and you will see amidst the turmoil of the ages the blessings God has given that people would live better lives. We have been blessed in spite all the wickedness that seeks to have us do otherwise. Look to the promises of the Lord and see that He has been good to all for the sake of those who love His name. Live for the Lord and for the goodness He is and gives.
Lord, I get caught up in my own personal struggles and do not see Your hand clearly at work amidst the people. Guide my heart to see in You the goodness You give and live according to Your never failing promises of grace and mercy. Help me see in You the hope of the ages and live into the promises You give. Help me learn faithfulness from You.
Lord Jesus, You are the One who came to save. Lead me O Lord in the way of salvation which You have established. Let me be among those who will inherit Your Kingdom. Teach me love as You love. Bring my heart to dwell in the riches of Your grace and mercy. May I be found in You all the days of my life. May I do what I do to the praise and glory of the Father now and forever. Amen.
