“But He, being compassionate, forgave their iniquity and did not destroy them; And often He restrained His anger and did not arouse all His wrath. Thus He remembered that they were but flesh, a wind that passes and does not return.” (Psalm 78: 38-39)
Lord, Your ability to hold Your hand against those who do evil is more than I am able to understand. You give freely to all and do not punish the wicked before their time. All things are in Your hands and You have a reason for everything. It will be as You have determined and nothing will thwart Your perfect plan. Help me trust in You in whom all things rest.
Lord, it is often difficult when I see the wicked spewing their lies and deception. You have given Your promises and many reject You. Help me to not be one of them. Create in me a new and clean heart that ponders on all the goodness You have brought into the world. Lead me in the way of righteousness that I may forever walk humbly with You, my God and my Savior.
Lord Jesus, You who was put to death by the wicked of this world and for the sake of sin which infects us all, by Your humble example, help me to walk before You as one who knows that it is You alone who is able to accomplish salvation for all who believe. Guide me this day to do those things which are right in the Father’s eyes, which will provide a witness that it is You who guides me. Amen.
