There are traps in this world laid by the wicked. The Lord will protect you if you look to Him. The only help in this world is the One who knows all things and knows what lies before you. Come under His wing and know the goodness of His love and mercy. Be comforted by His faithfulness and the shield of faith which He has given you. Know the Lord and know peace.
Lord, it is a difficult world and there are many around me who do wicked things. I too fall prey and do those things which are not pleasing in Your sight. Help me, I pray, to look to You for all good things and then do what is right in Your sight. Guide me according to Your Spirit that I would be attentive and aware in order to be one who is about Your business and not conformed to this world.
Lord Jesus, You came to set us free from the recompense of sin, yet sinfulness remains in this age. Guide me according to Your grace to abide in You and practice those things which are pleasing in Your sight. Help me now and always to look to You to find protection from the troubles of this world and to live in the faith You have given me. Amen.
