“Let my soul live that it may praise You, and let Your ordinances help me. I have gone astray like a lost sheep; seek Your servant, for I do not forget Your commandments.” (Psalm 119:175-176)
You know that this life will end. The Lord has promised eternal life to those who trust Him. Do you long for your soul to live in the presence of the Eternal One? You have gone astray. Your heart has times where it is far from the Lord. Do you remember the commandments of the Lord? Come now and trust in the Lord who created You. Be guided by the order of creation that He established.
Lord, I do not even know where to begin. It is You who must rescue me. Bring my heart to the place where it surrenders to You. Lead me according to the way of salvation You have established. Help me now and always to simply abide in Your goodness, mercy and precepts of love. Help me to be one who overcomes the adversity of this world that by Your grace I would be Yours forever.
Lord Jesus, You are the Savior who has come to gather the lost sheep. Grant that I would be one of Your lost sheep. Redeem me according to the Father’s will that I would be able to abide with You in eternity. Lead me along the path You know I need to walk that I would learn grace, mercy and Your precepts. Teach me to obey Your will that I would know how to live into the eternal life You promise. Amen.
