O Lord, the God of my salvation, I have cried out by day and in the night before You. Let my prayer come before You; incline Your ear to my cry!” (Psalm 88:1-2)
The Lord is our light and our salvation. Ponder what this means. It is not what you do, but what He has done. He invites those who hear His voice to come into His presence and walk in the way of salvation. Come unto the Lord and be fed by the word of truth that You may know that He hears your cries amidst a world filled with wickedness. The Lord hears our cries and has answered with salvation.
Lord, help my heart to be calm and my mind ready to receive the salvation You have prepared. Still the voice in my head that places conditions on salvation to receive freely what You have given. Guide me in the way of life that I may walk humbly in the salvation You give for all. Lead me to the place where I truly trust You above all things knowing that only in You is there hope and a future.
Lord Jesus. Salvation come to earth, guide me this day to walk in the way, truth and life You have accomplished from the cross. By the power of the Holy Spirit, lead me in the way of that truth. Keep me from making conditional what is unconditional, the way You have prepared for those who believe. Lead me to trust You and walk humbly in the way You have established for all. Amen.
