“Oh give thanks to the Lord, for He is good, for His lovingkindness is everlasting. Let the redeemed of the Lord say so, whom He has redeemed from the hand of the adversary and gathered from the lands, from the east and from the west, from the north and from the south.” (Psalm 107:1-3)
From every tribe, tongue and nation come those who have been called by the Holy Spirit into the counsel of the Lord, the Word of God. They come in His mercy and learn the Lord’s love. It is they who walk according to His promises and abide in His commandments, who live in the goodness of the Lord, walking in His ways and abiding in Him now and forever.
Lord, in this mixed up world, I do not see clearly through all of the obfuscation that is around me. I walk as half awake and unclear in thought, word and deed. Help me in the salvation You have provided to walk upright in Your sight and live according to all that You have commanded. I know I need Your grace and mercy, which You have provided, and thereby redeemed my life from the pit.
Lord Jesus, You alone are the Redeemer. You have paid the price I could not pay for not only my sin, but for all of those who walk in the counsel of the Holy Spirit. Lead me now and always,knowing that You are abiding in me that I may abide in You. Guide my steps by Your Word to make godly decisions and to walk humbly in the sight of the Father,singing praise and thanksgiving. Amen.
