“It is good for me that I was afflicted, that I may learn Your statutes. The law of Your mouth is better to me than thousands of gold and silver pieces.” (Psalm 119:71-72)
None of us is where we need to be. We need the salvation of the Lord. More than just an overlay, it must be deep-rooted in removing all that stands in the way of our walking in the righteousness of the Lord. The Lord will stop at nothing to bring you fully into the way of everlasting life. Rejoice in the love of the Lord and His willingness to lead you always.
Lord, there are troubles and turmoil in this age. You have promised that will all be worked for good for those who love You. Help me to see through to the many times where You have done this. Let me rejoice that even in adversity, You are growing in me the likeness of Christ. Lead me, O Lord, in all of Your ways and help me to see Your hand in everything knowing that it is You who leads.
Holy Spirit, reveal in my heart the many ways in which I am daily learning lessons. Help me to persevere that I may grow in obedience. Let me not be hindered by the ways of this world which plague me, but instead see that through Your guidance, I can and will learn and grow in faith. May I ever rejoice that You have given me the true treasure of eternity in being forever with You. Amen.
