“They even sacrificed their sons and their daughters to the demons, and shed innocent blood, the blood of their sons and their daughters, whom they sacrificed to the idols of Canaan; and the land was polluted with the blood.” (Psalm 106:37-38)
This world has often forgotten the simple admonitions of the Lord. So deep is sin that we do not even love our families as we should. In these days, we see the same things, where parents are willing to sacrifice their children to the gods of this age. Our land too is polluted with the blood of the sacrifices. Yes, we also live in a time where this happens. Fall on your face before the Lord and pray to Him for faithfulness.
Lord God, you alone are able to rescue us from the sin of this and every age. Strip away the pretense and the false attitude that causes me to think that I do not have my part. Do not strip away my life, but bring me into Your salvation that I may discover the freedom that is found in You alone. Help me now and always to see in You the hope You have given and to walk humbly in all of Your ways.
Lord Jesus, You know our sins and the fullness of their impact in our lives. Lead me in humility that I may now and always walk according to Your Word of truth. Teach me today the way I should go that I may now and always abide in You and You in me. Lead me by the Spirit to walk through the valley of this age’s shadow of death to live into the life to which You are calling me be grace. Amen.
