Devotion for Saturday, April 7, 2018

“Consider the covenant; for the dark places of the land are full of the habitations of violence. Let not the oppressed return dishonored; let the afflicted and needy praise Your name.” (Psalm 74:20-21)

The covenant of God is always before us. He will be our God and we will be His people. Come then into the covenant which is unchanging, but fulfilled in Christ Jesus. Know the goodness of His mercy and walk humbly in His ways, knowing that He is God and all who are His people will walk with Him forever. Come and praise the Lord for all His goodness and mercy.

Lord, You call each of us to humbly come before You and walk in the ways You have established from the beginning. Guide me, O Lord, to walk in the ways You have established that I may not be led astray by the wicked of this world, but live in peace with You, seeking to live in peace with my neighbor. Only in You is there hope for the ages. Only in You is there peace that surpasses understanding.

Lord Jesus, You know the circumstances in which we find our selves. Only You know what is needed for each day. Guide me in the grace You have provided to walk humbly with You all the days of my life knowing that in You is the hope of every tomorrow. Lead me away from the wicked ways of this world into the glorious peace You give for those who walk with You in grace. Amen.
