Devotion for Saturday, May 4, 2019

They almost destroyed me on earth, but as for me, I did not forsake
Your precepts.  Revive me according to
Your lovingkindness, so that I may keep the testimony of Your mouth.”  (Psalm 119:87-88)

The wicked of the world are
destructive.  Like their father, the
devil, they kill, maim and destroy.  But
it should not be so among you.  Be those
who uphold the stewardship of the Lord and do what is right in the face of
evil.  Let your life be a testimony of
the goodness of the Lord.  Seek His ways
always and walk in them.  Know that in
the Lord is found all goodness, mercy and kindness.

Lord, I hear the laments of this age and it has only gotten worse since
this verse was penned.  Mankind has
increased in its wickedness.  Guide me, O
Lord, in the way of righteousness that I may live according to Your precepts
and walk in them.  Turn my heart to
always do what is right and good. Lead me in Your ways, O Lord, that I may walk
in them.  Help me to be a good steward.

Lord Jesus, You have come to save us from ourselves.  You know the state of our hearts and the ways in which we are uncaring.  Guide me this day to do those things which are pleasing in Your sight.  Help me now and always to abide in Your promises and know that all things are Yours, for through You and for You they were made.  May I now and always be found in You, O Lord, doing what is pleasing in the Father’s sight.  Amen.
