Devotion for Friday, February 15, 2019

“Let my accusers be clothed with dishonor, and let them cover
themselves with their own shame as with a robe. With my mouth I will give
thanks abundantly to the Lord; and in the midst of many I will praise Him. For
He stands at the right hand of the needy, to save him from those who judge his
soul.” (Psalm 109:29-31)

How is the attitude you have
toward the things of the Lord? Is it constant questioning and pondering over
your own circumstances or does it come down to giving the Lord thanks for all
the goodness He has brought into your life? The Lord is good and greatly to be
praised. Know that the Lord will accomplish what He has purposed and that
nothing or no one can stand against Him.

Lord, in my day-to-day life, help me live knowing that all things are
in Your hands. Guide me in Your goodness to see in You the hope of glory. Lead
me according to Your will to do what is pleasing in Your sight that I may now
and forever abide in You and the promise You give by Your grace and mercy. Lead
me in the upward way to come into Your presence with thanksgiving that I may
now and forever abide in You as You abide in me.

Lord Jesus, You have taught us
that we are blessed in You. Lead me now and always to daily become more a
person of praise and thanksgiving. Help me to follow through with what You have
spoken that I may become more like You, learning to love my neighbor. In all
that happens, teach me to come to the place where I am thankful above all
things knowing that the Father’s will shall be done. Amen.
