“Then they cried out to the Lord in their trouble; He saved them out of their distresses. He sent His word and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions. Let them give thanks to the Lord for His lovingkindness,and for His wonders to the sons of men!” (Psalm 107:19-21)
The Lord is not bent on destruction, the world is. The Lord in a moment could cause all that is to cease to be. But the Lord gives grace and mercy to those who fear Him. Move from rebellion into repentance and know that the Lord will lift you up to be with Him where He is. Be guided by His goodness all the days of Your life. Leave behind the ways of the world and walk in the ways of the Lord.
Lord, You know the tug in my heart that is always seeking what the world offers. I take comfort in the futility of this age rather than being comforted in Your goodness. Lead me, O Lord, that I may walk in Your ways and leave behind the destruction of this age. Guide me in Your goodness by Your mercy to see more clearly each day the path You set before me and I will follow You.
Lord Jesus, You have come and said, “follow me.” Lead me, Lord, that I may walk in Your salvation and learn from You how to believe and live. Teach me Your humble ways that I may be guided to do all to the glory of the Father. Help me now and always by Your grace to see through the wickedness of this world that I may abide in You as You abide in me forever. Amen.
