Devotion for Friday, December 14, 2018

“And they wandered about from nation to nation, from one kingdom to another people. He permitted no man to oppress them, and He reproved kings for their sakes: “Do not touch My anointed ones, and do My prophets no harm.” (Psalm 105:13-15)


The unfolding of time is in God’s plan and purpose. Though the people be disciplined, it is through the true voice of God in prophecy that the Lord reminds those who will be faithful to hold fast to His never-changing promises. The Word of the Lord is forever and He will prevail. Come into the Lord’s promise no matter the circumstances and know that He who is forever is with You.

Lord, Your faithful prophets have spoken time and again the simple message that You are Lord and that Your will shall be done. Guide me into the promises You have spoken that I may now and always live according to Your will. Help me in every time of trouble to come to You knowing that only in You is there hope and a future. You are God and there is no other.

Come, Holy Spirit, and minister to my heart. In You is the hope of the ages as You lead me in truth. Cause my heart to flee from unrighteousness and to cling to that which is right and good. Give me eyes to see the difference, in and through all things. You are with me. Help me to be with You. Lead me this day in grace and mercy that I may cling to the eternal Word of truth. Amen.
