Devotion for Saturday, February 24, 2018

“Be to me a rock of refuge, to which I may continually come; You have given the command to save me, for You are my rock and my fortress. Rescue me, O my God, from the hand of the wicked, from the grasp of the unjust and cruel man.” (Psalm 71:4-5)

Where is your point of anchor? Do you listen to the constant hammering of daily news? Do you fall into novels, movies, entertainment? Is your passion filled with sports or hobbies? What do you lean on in times of trouble? The Lord is the greatest friend to those who seek Him. He is always there and He alone will never leave nor forsake you. Come to the Lord, your anchor, and be secure.

Lord, I am comforted by many things in this life. They are good as far as they go but they never satisfy. Guide me, O Lord, to walk in Your ways and be comforted by You as the ultimate source to whom I turn. Lead me in Your ways that I would walk in them. Remind me in times of confusion and distraction that You are always there. You are the rock for all who turn to You.

Lord Jesus, turning us to eternity and the blessed assurance of it is why You have come into this world. Guide me this day in the truth of salvation, not only saving me from sin and death, but from meaningless nothingness which fills our days with activity that has no eternal meaning. Lead me in the way You have established that I may go as You lead and live as You have always intended. Amen.
