Devotion for Friday, November 16, 2018
“Just as a father has compassion on his children, so the Lord has compassion on those who fear Him. For He Himself knows our frame; He is mindful that we are but dust.” (Psalm 103:13-14)
What are you? Think of the times you think beyond what you really are. Now, think about the Creator of all things. Is there really ever a comparison? With this in mind, know that the Lord loves you whom He has created. In humility, come before the Lord and be one of His created creatures. You are His and it is with love that He deals with His creation. He knows who we are.
Lord, I am guilty of being haughty and self-centered. Who am I that You would love a piece of animated dust like me? Yet You have become as I am in order that I might be with You forever. Guide me, O Lord, in the way I should go that I would walk willingly with You alongside me. Help me each and every day to live into this faith You have given me.
Lord Jesus, it would be impossible without You. Sometimes I am overwhelmed and it seems impossible anyway. Keep my eyes upon You that I may not look to myself, but to You for all things. Guide me according to Your goodness that I may grow in faith and love and take on Your likeness. May I always know my place and rejoice that You would count me in Your fellowship. Amen.
