“The Lord is my portion; I have promised to keep Your words. I sought Your favor with all my heart; be gracious to me according to Your word. I considered my ways and turned my feet to Your testimonies.” (Psalm 119:57-58)

In what do you hope? What is it you seek? It seems as though many seek for fortune and fame, but in this world that is meaningless because when all is said and done, what is accumulated is left behind. Seek as your first portion the Lord who is forever. Consider all of your ways and look to the One who created all things. Seek His favor above all things and all things necessary will be added.

Lord, it is difficult to see through this world’s fog. Help me, I pray, to see first Your goodness and the truth that You have revealed. Lead me into the righteousness You promise by grace through faith. Lift me up to be with You where You are that I would forever hold fast to the truth of Your Word. Bring me under the fig tree where I may meditate upon all that You have spoken.

Lord Jesus, lead me to the place where I become one in whom there is no guile. Through meditation, lift me up to be with You that I may become like You. I have considered the ways of the world and they are fleeting. I see, in You and the salvation You bring, hope and life. Abide with me Lord that I may now and forever abide with You. Be gracious to me according to Your word. Amen.
