Devotion for Saturday, May 19, 2018

“They did not remember His power, the day when He redeemed them from the adversary, when He performed His signs in Egypt and His marvels in the field of Zoan, and turned their rivers to blood, and their streams, they could not drink.” (Psalm 78:42-44)

How easily we forget Who it is that has created this existence. We come up with other explanations and forget what we have seen. The Lord has done marvelous things and either we look on them and wonder, or else dismiss them and move on. Come into the presence of the One through Whom all things have their being and know what life was created to be.

Lord, the rebellion of this age runs deep and many are they who sell all kinds of things to lead me astray. I believe what I know is fake when I watch entertainment and ponder on the false narrative, yet I will not ponder on the truth You have revealed for the ages. Guide me, O Lord, in the way of truth that I may forever hold fast to the goodness You have given from the beginning.

Lead me, O Lord, that I may walk in the way of grace and truth. Lord Jesus, apart from You, there is just meandering around this creation You have brought into existence. Lead me in the deeper things that I would ponder each day upon the goodness I see all around me. Help me also ponder the rebellion that is also present that I may better understand why You have come. Amen.
