“I shall walk before the Lord in the land of the living. I believed when I said, “I am greatly afflicted.” I said in my alarm, “All men are liars.” (Psalm 116:9-11)
The world is filled with those who believe they live for themselves. Lift me out of the lie that I may live in the truth that You alone are God. Help me now and always to abide in You all the moments of this life as I prepare for the eternal life You have promised. You have promised that all things will work together for good as I am learning to love as You first loved me.
Lord, You know the afflictions of this life. You have tasted them firsthand. You know the path I need to walk and You have prepared the way. Lead me through the lies of this age and the afflictions that come because of those lies. Help me now and always to simply come into the truth of Your presence. Lead me in the way of salvation that I would hold fast to the truth You have revealed.
Lord Jesus, Truth Incarnate, lead me this day to abide in You. You are the way, truth and life and there is nothing apart from You, for through You all things have come into being. Guide me in the goodness You have revealed that in spite of the circumstances of this day I may give You thanks and praise. Keep me lips from lying and my heart focused upon what is holy and true for Your name’s sake. Amen.
