“I will sing to the Lord as long as I live; I will sing praise to my God while I have my being. Let my meditation be pleasing to Him; as for me, I shall be glad in the Lord.” (Psalm 104:33-34)
What is the direction of your life? Are you looking to the Lord for all things? No matter the circumstances, do you see in Him your hope and future? God is good all the time, but this age is filled with trouble and heartache. Know that there is purpose in everything and that what the Lord is doing is beyond our ability to begin to comprehend. Rejoice and be glad in the goodness of the Lord.
Lord, You know me and my circumstances beyond my ability to begin to comprehend. In spite of my own sin and rebellion, You have provided all that is needed that I might now and forever abide in You. Guide me, O Lord, into the depths of the goodness of Your grace and mercy that I would walk the upward path of being in Your presence. Lead me in the way I should go now and forever.
Lord Jesus, You provide the way to walk and the example by which to live. Lead me in the tensions of this life knowing that often I have to choose between two things neither of which are palatable. Help me to know that only in the grace You give am I able to abide with You. Lead me today to praise You no matter the circumstance knowing that all things are in Your hands and for the Father’s glory. Amen.
