Devotion for Thursday, September 13, 2018
“They will still yield fruit in old age; they shall be full of sap and very green, to declare that the Lord is upright; He is my rock, and there is no unrighteousness in Him.” (Psalm 92:14-15)
The one who walks in the ways of the Lord matures and the evidence of the Lord’s ways in their lives becomes apparent. The way of the Lord is eternal and the way of the world is destruction. Many walk in the way of the world, but you have been called to walk in the way of the Lord. Come into His presence and see that walking with the Lord is the way of eternal life. It brings peace.
Lord, it is hard to go against the tide of this world. I am often overwhelmed by the temptation to give in and go with the flow of this world’s ways. Hold me up to walk with You the whole distance in order that I may simply stand before You as one who has walked with You all the days of my life. Lead me in the right way that I may see at life’s end the joy of being in Your presence.
Lord Jesus, You have come to save us from this world’s tugs and pulls. Guide me in the way You have established that I may now and always live according to the Father’s will. Lift me up to see in You the hope of glory that is promised by Your grace. Now and always may I walk in the way and truth You have established from the beginning. Lead me, Lord, and help me to follow. Amen.
