Devotion for Sunday, April 7, 2019

“Deal bountifully with Your servant, that I may live and keep Your
word. Open my eyes, that I may behold wonderful things from Your law. I am a
stranger in the earth; do not hide Your commandments from me.” (Psalm

If we live by faith, we know
that this life is short and temporary. We are in the midst of being made new in
the image of Christ. Live to keep the Word and you will become like Christ. This
is so simple to see, if even hard to do. Trust in the Lord and He will open
your eyes to see the truth of the revelation which has always been before you. We
are all pilgrims and strangers upon this earth.

Lord, open my eyes to see more clearly the path upon which You have set
me. Guide me according to Your commandments that I may abide in You as You
abide in me. You are the Creator of all things and You know what You are doing.
Keep me from trusting in myself that I would trust in You always. Lead me, O
Lord, according to Your goodness that I may learn to abide in Your promises.

Lord Jesus, You have called us to
join with You through the cross and prepare for the coming resurrection. Lead
me, O Lord, in the way You know I need to go that I would follow You step by
step through this journey of faith. Guide me to live according to the
never-changing word which has been declared that I may now and forever live
into the promise of salvation which You have made possible. Amen.
