“Egypt was glad when they departed, for the dread of them had fallen upon them. He spread a cloud for a covering, and fire to illumine by night.” (Psalm 105:38-39)


The world does not like it when the Lord demonstrates His power. The dread comes upon them, but they soon forget. Pharaoh would soon chase after them only to see his army destroyed. The Lord is in charge of history and it will unfold according to His will. Trust in the One who holds all things in His hands. Know that He is the One Who will accomplish all that He has purposed.

Lord, I get caught up in the nonsense of this world. Help me now and always to understand that everything is in your hands. Whether the world is ignoring You or in dread because of what You have allowed, help me to see that it is You to whom I should look in all things. Lead me away from this world’s crazy way of thinking and acting to live in Your presence now and always.

Thank You, Lord Jesus, for coming and being a beacon of sanity in a world that is crazy. Thank You for leading the way for all who believe and follow in faith. Lead me this day into the Father’s presence to do those things You give me to do knowing that the world around me may well be doing things differently. Lift me up to be with You where You are that I may always abide in You. Amen.
