Devotion for Wednesday, April 24, 2019

“I am a companion of all those who fear You, and of those who keep Your
precepts. The earth is full of Your lovingkindness, O Lord; teach me Your
statutes.” (Psalm 119:63-64)

Do you regularly participate in
a fellowship? Not attend, but participate. Being a companion of those who are
on the journey of being faithful is important. If we do not stay together, we
will be picked off one by one. The Lord created us as social beings and we need
each other to be encouraged to fight the good fight of keeping the Lord’s
statutes. Walk with others in the way of the Lord.

You know O Lord the difficulty fellowships can be. Lead me, O Lord, to
be a part of the community in which You have planted me. Guide me according to
Your goodness that I would be as active as I am able. Lead me to both encourage
and receive encouragement to live into the life to which You have called me. May
I now and always abide with those whom You appoint in peace.

Lord Jesus, You called around you
those twelve into whom You poured Your life. Lead me to do the same with those
around me. Guide me O Lord in the way of truth that I would now and always walk
with You in fellowship and with those whom You appoint for me to walk in
fellowship. Guide me this day, O Lord, in the good way of the Father’s statutes
and precepts. Amen.
