“Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of His godly ones. O Lord, surely I am Your servant, I am Your servant, the son of Your handmaid, You have loosed my bonds. To You I shall offer a sacrifice of thanksgiving, and call upon the name of the Lord.” (Psalm 116:15-17)
Are you afraid of death? What is there to fear? The unknown? If you know the Lord, then all you need to know is known. The Lord is with You all the days of Your life. He created you and He knows you. He even knows the day of your death. It is precious to Him because this age of sin and wickedness is over and you are in His eternal presence. Trust in the Lord always, for He is with you.
Lord, lead me through the dark clouds of this age to know that in You is all the hope anyone could ever want. Guide me in Your goodness that I would walk with You always, knowing that You are there and You know the plans You have for me. Lead me into the assurance that no matter what comes, I am in Your hands. In You alone, Lord, is there hope and a future that is eternal.
Holy Spirit, minister to my heart that I would not be afraid. Lead me beside the still waters of faith that no matter the circumstances of this world, I would rest securely in the hope You give. Teach me this day what You would have me know that I would humbly walk with Your guidance in the presence of the Father. Help me to be thankful in all circumstances, lifting praise and thanksgiving to You. Amen.
