“You give to them, they gather it up; You open Your hand, they are satisfied with good. You hide Your face, they are dismayed; You take away their spirit, they expire and return to their dust.” (Psalm 104:28-29)
Everything you gather, all that you collect, will one day go to another. All that we have on this earth is temporary, with the exception of our character. All are destined for the dust, but all have a promise before them. Come into the presence of the Lord and seek Him while He may be found. Know that in the Lord is liberty and life and apart from Him is nothing good.
Lord, You are good and I do not know the fullness of Your goodness. I tend to cling to what I know. Help me learn to walk in the faith You have given me that my journey be according to Your Word and not according to the foolish ways of this age. Guide me in the fullness of Your grace and mercy that I may abide now and forever in You, the God who created all things and for whom all things exist.
Thank You, Lord Jesus, for walking in our midst and granting the promise of grace. Lead me now and always in the grace You give that I may forever abide in You and You in me. Grow in me wisdom and understanding that I may live into the promise of becoming like You. Take me where I need to go and remove from me the obstacles that hinder this life into which You are bringing me. Amen.
