“Listen, O my people, to my instruction; incline your ears to the words of my mouth. I will open my mouth in a parable; I will utter dark sayings of old, which we have heard and known, and our fathers have told us.” (Psalm 78:1-3)

In parables which speak to all people in all places and at all times the Lord will give instruction which transcends languages and barriers. The Lord has given instruction and has prepared the way for all who will trust Him to come in faith and know that He is God. Be led by the Spirit and know that the One who has come, came to lead all who will listen as He instructs.

Lord, there is nothing new under the sun. You who know all things knows the plans You have for us. You created us to walk in Your love and to live according to what You have established from long ago. Guide me, O Lord, to walk according to Your ways that I may have peace with You my God and live in the grace You give to enable me to receive the message of everlasting life.

Lord Jesus, You who came in the flesh spoke in parables that all might understand. You have laid down the principles of eternity and have given them to us as Scripture said You would. Help me receive the message You have given that I may walk now and forever under Your guidance. Lift me up to see in You not only the hope, but the reality of a life to be lived that I may walk with You my God always. Amen.
