“We have sinned like our fathers, we have committed iniquity, we have behaved wickedly. Our fathers in Egypt did not understand Your wonders; they did not remember Your abundant kindnesses, but rebelled by the sea, at the Red Sea.” (Psalm 106:6-7)


Those generations are behind us, but we are just like them. We sin as they sin, for we do not trust the Lord and abide in His ways. We do not learn from those who would teach us, but continue in rebellion thinking we know more than we do. The Lord has come offering salvation that we may first be saved from our selves. Remember the Lord and all of His goodness that You may live as He created life to be lived.

Lord, You know this rebellion, for it repeats itself generation after generation. You have opened my eyes to see that I too am one who is rebellious. Lead me, O Lord, in the way of truth that I may walk according to Your Word and not according to the way of this rebellious world. May my heart be lifted up to see that Your way is the way of life and truth. Guide me by Your word into this way alone.

Lord Jesus, You are the way, truth and life and apart from You is the way of rebellion. Generations have come and gone, all rebelling against the truth. Help me lay down my arms of rebellion and humbly walk according to Your Word. Lead me now and always through the rebellion that is in my heart that I may be guided by Your gentle Spirit into life everlasting. Amen.
