“Forever, O Lord, your word is settled in heaven.  Your faithfulness continues throughout all generations; You established the earth, and it stands.  They stand this day according to Your ordinances, for all things are Your servants.”  (Psalm 119:89-91)

The author and finisher of creation is the Lord God Almighty.  It is His, for He made it.  Who then is able to thwart what has already been written?  To whom shall we turn if not the Lord.  The world is His and although we have temporary custody, all belongs to Him.  Be guided not by the wickedness of this world, but the goodness of the One who made all things and walk in His ways.

Lord, it is a struggle to see through the dim light of this age.  So many things have been twisted that I do not see through to Your goodness, Lift up my countenance and grant that more of Your light comes into my soul.  Be Thou my vision and my stronghold that I may walk boldly and with my life proclaim Your goodness.  What You have declared is the reality of eternity.  Guide me in all of Your ways that I may partake of Your promises.

Lord Jesus, You have come to rescue us from the way of sin, death and the devil.  Lead me, O Lord, in the way You would have me go that I may not falter.  Lift me up when I stumble and help me now and always to see through the haze of this world to do what is right in Your sight.  Teach me Your ways that I may walk in them and enable me to hold fast to the truth of the eternal Word.  Amen.
