Devotion for Tuesday, April 24, 2018

“Has God forgotten to be gracious, or has He in anger withdrawn His compassion? Then I said, “It is my grief, that the right hand of the Most High has changed.” (Psalm 77:9-10)

Our perspective changes, but God does not change. We see things the way we see them, often influenced by our circumstances. God is good and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love. There are times when He does not give grace. There are times when He is angry.  We change, but God does not, so look to Him Who has shown Himself to be changeless and not as you feel He is.

Lord, I am fickle and often behave as a small child. Guide me, O Lord, through the winsome and feeble feelings of this world to hold fast to You, for You are my rock and fortress. Lead me away from being guided by my feelings that I may be led by the truth that Your Word is forever. Help me now and always Lord to be guided by the truth of eternity and walk in Your ways.

Lord Jesus, You encountered all manner of people who were here, there and all over the place.  You call to each of us to humbly come with You wherever You lead. Guide me in the Holy Spirit, Lord, that I would walk with You, my Savior. You are unchanging, but I must change to be conformed to Your image. Lead me as I must go that I may learn to faithfully follow wherever You lead. Amen.
