“In you, O Lord, do I take refuge; let me never be put to shame! In your righteousness deliver me and rescue me; incline your ear to me, and save me!” (Psalm 71:1-2)
When all is said and done, where do you rest? Where is your place of beginning and ending? We find distractions to keep us busy, but we seldom think of where we begin and where we end. The Lord is the beginning and the ending. In Him is the source and result; we do well to realize this and make Him our beginning and end and then everything else will fall into place and be balanced.
Lord, I am so distracted by the constant noise and activities of this world. Often I just go through my days going from one thing to another. Help me, I pray, to learn to prioritize, not with a list of things, but with the reality that I have come into this world and will leave this world and the beginning and the end are equally important. Guide me, O Lord, in the way I should go always.
Lord Jesus, You came with a specific mission to call all who would come unto You to follow You as You lead us from our beginning into Your eternity. Not so much finding out what to do as to whom to rest in, guide me always to look to You as the author and finisher of my faith. Lead me now and always to go through life with Your purpose as the purpose of my heart for all things. Amen.
