“I will give thanks to You, O Lord my God, with all my heart, and will glorify Your name forever. For Your lovingkindness toward me is great, and You have delivered my soul from the depths of Sheol.” (Psalm 86:12-13)
The wages of sin is death. The Lord has come and is our Savior that we might be saved from being left in the pit. Come unto the Lord and know His goodness and mercy and walk humbly with Him in the way He would lead you. He has shown His love and mercy and gives His kindness to those who fear Him. Know the Lord and know the deliverance He promises.
Lord, I struggle in this life with those things that come along and get in the way. I see the difficulties all around me and do not understand things. You are there and I know that Your purpose and presence is over all things. Guide me to see more clearly the truth of Your love and mercy and to walk humbly in Your ways. Guide me, O Lord, according to Your purpose.
God in the flesh, You have come that all who are in You would have light and life. Guide me in the grace You have given that I may do what is pleasing to the Father. Help me, I pray, to simply do those things which are pleasing to You. Help me in every time of need that I would hold fast to the truth You have given me that I would praise You now and always for Your goodness. Amen.
