“Hear, my people, and I will testify to you, Israel, if you would listen to me! There shall be no strange god in you, neither shall you worship any foreign god.” (Psalm 81:8-9)

The Lord calls to us to come to the One who is true that we may be in Him and He in us. The world goes where it will and believes as it will. The truth speaks and we have the opportunity to listen. Come, worship the One who created you and know His goodness. Come and listen to the Lord, for He will grant you wisdom and understanding. Come and know the Lord, for He is good.

Lord, I do wander off into the realm of the world where they hate You and pretend You are not there. Let not the gods of this world infect my heart. Instead, grow deep within me wisdom and knowledge of the truth that I may abide in You and You in me all the days of my life. Help me to see clearly in this messy world the truth You have revealed for the ages and to abide there.

Lord Jesus, truth in the flesh, guide me now and always to walk humbly in Your example. You have come that all who believe would be set free from the curse of this world and the false gods that occupy it. Lift me up into the light of truth which You have reveled that I may walk in truth. Guide my footsteps to see what is before me and take those steps which are pleasing in the Father’s sight. Amen.
