“But He sets the needy securely on high away from affliction, and makes his families like a flock. The upright see it and are glad; but all unrighteousness shuts its mouth. Who is wise? Let him give heed to these things, and consider the lovingkindnesses of the Lord.” (Psalm 107:41-43)
Do you look to see things as the Lord made them and then look at how the world fights against the order of the Lord? The Lord wants us to gather together and encourage each other. The world wants us to be our own free agents. Which will work? The way of the world is destruction, but the way of the Lord is forever. Consider the Lord’s goodness and walk in His ways.
Lord, I often am carried away by this world’s thinking. I think myself not able to see things the way You describe them. Shatter that illusion and help me to simply see the truth that You are the One who has established all things. Lead me into Your order of things that I may walk humbly in Your sight and live according to Your will. Guide me in the upward path of salvation.
Lord Jesus, by the power of the Holy Spirit You are able to lead me through the quagmire of this world’s thinking. Help me to see the better portion and walk humbly in the way of salvation that You have established. Lift up my eyes to see more clearly each day the way You would have me go that I may abide in You at all times. You are my rock and my stronghold. Help me to hold on for dear life. Amen.
