Devotion for Sunday, July 21, 2019

“He causes the vapors to ascend from the ends of the earth; who makes
lightnings for the rain, who brings forth the wind from His treasuries.  He smote the firstborn of Egypt, both of man
and beast.”  (Psalm 135:7-8)

The earth is the Lord’s for He
made all things.  Know that He who made
all things knows His creation.  Do not
trust in the words of mere mortals, but in the One who created all things.  In Him alone is life and light.  In Him alone is goodness.  Come then and dwell in the house of the Lord
forever.  Come and be nurtured by the One
who made you and all things that you may know your Maker.

Lord, I am often led off the path of righteousness by the cares of this
world.  Help me, O Lord, to live into the
life for which I was made.  Guide me
according to Your goodness to see the hope of glory which You have placed
before me.  Lead me ever deeper into the
unimaginable depths of the faith You have given me.  According to Your goodness, lead me to live a
life of faith.

Jesus, my way, truth and life,
guide me this day to understand a little more about the faith You have given
me.  Guide me according to Your goodness
to see that in You is all hope.  Lift me
up to see today Your guidance as I live out this day.  Help me to see through the clouds that will
come that I may now and always abide in the light of Your countenance.  Lead away my Savior; I will follow.  Amen.
