Devotion for Monday, February 18, 2019

“The Lord is at Your right hand; He will shatter kings in the day of
His wrath. He will judge among the nations, He will fill them with corpses, He
will shatter the chief men over a broad country. He will drink from the brook
by the wayside; therefore He will lift up His head.” (Psalm 110:5-7)

What have you to fear? It is the
Lord who governs all history and times of repression will pass away as He
shatters the power of those who rule for only a short while. Come into the
presence of the Lord and know His unfailing love and mercy. Know that the Lord
shall accomplish all that He has purposed and nothing shall hinder what the
Lord will accomplish by His will.

Lord, I am often tossed about like a ship in a storm. Guide me to the
place where I know that no matter what storm comes upon my life, You have
promised to work it all for good according to Your will. Lead me in the faith,
hope and love that You give that I may grow according to Your will and fulfill
the purpose for which I have been created. You alone are God and all things are
in Your hands.

Help me moment by moment, Holy
Spirit, to know that You are there to guide me through whatever the day will
bring. Though ten thousand fall at my right side, keep me from being one who
fails to stand back up that in the end I may be found in You. Teach me wisdom
that I may grow in understanding and have the strength to stand firm. Lead me,
O Lord, and grant me a new and clean heart. Amen.
