Devotion for Tuesday, April 10, 2018
“The earth and all who dwell in it melt; it is I who have firmly set its pillars. “I said to the boastful, ‘Do not boast,’ and to the wicked, ‘Do not lift up the horn;” (Psalm 75:3-4)
Upon whom, not what, does existence rest? It is upon the Lord God who made all things. Apart from Him there is nothing. Only in Him are the nations upheld. See that it is the Lord who causes all things to be and that only in Him is life sustained. The fool says there is no God, but those who come to wisdom know that He is the One who is the center and the hope of all people.
Lord this earth will pass away. Even the ones who deny you know that one day they will die and for them, the earth will melt away. Lead me, O Lord, in the way You have established that I may walk according to Your counsel and not be led astray by the wicked of this world who deny You. Guide me, Lord, in Your wisdom that I would forever hold fast to the truth You have revealed.
Thank You, Lord Jesus, for coming and showing us the truth of salvation. Thank You for being the way in which we can follow. Thank You for the grace You give to make it possible to walk in the way of the LORD. You are the hope of all people, for You have come in person to show the way and lead us to eternal life. In You alone is the hope of all people. Guide me in You Lord Jesus. Amen.
