Devotion for Thursday, November 8, 2018
“Of old You founded the earth, and the heavens are the work of Your hands. “Even they will perish, but You endure; and all of them will wear out like a garment; like clothing You will change them and they will be changed.” (Psalm 102:25-26)
Everything you see in this creation is temporary. The Lord God is forever. Do you place your hope on that which is temporary or are you looking to the One who is forever. Come into the Lord’s presence and know that He who formed You knows you by name. He has called you into His presence to be with Him now and forever. Be guided by His ways and know the life into which You are called.
Lord, Your Word speaks clearly of the things You have made. It also speaks of the reality of eternity. You have called me to come into Your will and walk according to Your ways. Lead me, O Lord, in the way of salvation that I may abide in You now and forever. Lift up my countenance to see more clearly each day the way You would have me go that I may go Your way.
Holy Spirit, lead me by the grace You have provided that I may today and every day grow into the image of Christ my Savior. Teach me what I need to learn and remove the obstacles that get in the way that I may now and always walk the narrow path that leads to eternal life. May I abide in Your presence and I ask that You abide in me that I may be directed according to the Father’s will. Amen.
