“He sent among them swarms of flies which devoured them, and frogs which destroyed them. He gave also their crops to the grasshopper and the product of their labor to the locust.” (Psalm 78:45-46)

Whether it is good which elicits no thanks, or plagues to warn, people remain unmoved. Generation after generation sees the Lord’s hand in things and the people go about their business as if the Lord does not matter. He who holds all things together is simply a part of the fabric, not given a thought. Think again and turn to the Lord while you may that you may know His goodness.

Lord, I do forget and go about my business as if it did not matter. I do this with others too. Help me, I pray, to see in You the truth that without You I do not exist, for You are the One who created and sustains me. Guide me away from selfishness and into the truth of Your ever-present love and kindness. No matter what happens in this earth, help me see Your hand in all things.

Lord, You do care for those whom You have made. You love us enough to die for us. Guide me into Your presence to walk with You, knowing that You who hold all things in Your hands, have come that we might have true liberty and life in and through You. Guide me in the way of Your righteousness that I may abide in Your love now and forever and come to everlasting rest in You. Amen.
