“Wealth and riches are in his house, and his righteousness endures forever. Light arises in the darkness for the upright; He is gracious and compassionate and righteous.” (Psalm 112:3-4)
The true wealth is living in the truth of the Lord. Yet also, with wisdom, the Lord grants additional gifts that help living life in this world. The one who loves the Lord becomes like Him and is compassionate and righteous. Come to the Lord and live in the power He gives to become a child of His. Know that He will fulfill His promises and guide all who remain in Him into eternal life.
Lord, I see what is there when I look at myself and know the lack of faith in me. Help me, Lord, to grow into the person You are making me to be. Indeed, bring compassion and righteousness into my heart that I may become what You intend. Lead me along the right paths for Your name’s sake. May I learn from You in humility and know that only by Your power and in Your providence am I able to become what You are making of me.
Thank You, Holy Spirit, for being with me moment by moment. You know the tugs and pulls that come upon me throughout the day. Help me, I pray, to learn this day a little more about all that needs to happen to remove what needs to be removed and to place what is new and right in its place. Guide me that I may live this day in Your presence and under Your direction. Amen.
