“Who will bring me into the besieged city? Who will lead me to Edom? Have not You Yourself, O God, rejected us? And will You not go forth with our armies, O God? Oh give us help against the adversary, for deliverance by man is in vain. Through God we will do valiantly, and it is He who shall tread down our adversaries.” (Psalm 108:10-13)
The times come when we feel that the Lord is nowhere to be found. Circumstances overwhelm us and we do not see the hand of the Lord. Come out of this fog of thinking and know that all history is in the hands of the Lord. He knows the end from the beginning. He who formed You knows all things and in His redemption you will have life everlasting. Do not look to the world, but unto the Lord.
Lord, clear my mind to live into the simple truth that You are God and nothing can take Your place. Help me to understand more clearly the truth of Your power and purpose that I may walk now and always in Your presence. Lift up my heart that, no matter the circumstance in which I find myself, I may rejoice in Your perfect will being accomplished through all that happens around me.
Lord Jesus, You have come to save us and it is saving that we need. Lead me, O Lord, in the way of truth that I may now and always live into the salvation You have prepared for those who believe. Lift up my countenance that I may walk humbly with You my Savior through all that this world will bring. Guide me in the goodness of Your grace and mercy that I may abide in You as You abide in me. Amen.
