Devotion for Monday, June 18, 2018

“They do not know nor do they understand; they walk about in darkness; all the foundations of the earth are shaken. I said, “You are gods, and all of you are sons of the Most High.” (Psalm 82:5-6)

People walk in ignorance. To intentionally ignore is to remain ignorant. The message of the Lord is there, but it is ignored and excuses made. Many walk in the darkness of this age. The Lord has created us in His image to dwell with Him in eternity. We have been called in His mercy to walk with Him in the light of His countenance. He has toppled the wickedness of those walking in darkness.

Lord, You are all around and speak in many and various ways, but in these last days, You have spoken through Your Son. The world spends its time being busy and ignoring the upward call You have given through Your Messiah. You will make of us what You will make of us. You are the Lord, creator of all things. Lead me into the light You have shown that I may be Your child of light.

Jesus, You are the light of the world. As many as believe come into the salvation You have brought into the world. Lead me this day into Your light that I would live as one called to be Your brother. In the mystery of faith that You have revealed, grant me eyes to see and ears to hear the call You have given me and empower my feet to walk in the way You have shown Your disciples. Amen.
