“He sent signs and wonders into your midst, O Egypt, upon Pharaoh and
all his servants.  He smote many nations
and slew mighty kings, Sihon, king of the Amorites, and Og, king of Bashan,” (Psalm

Generation after generation the
nations come and go.  The mighty deeds of
the Lord are evident to any who will look, but many do not look and so do not
see.  The Lord delivers the faithful and
the church continues.  The wicked go down
to the pit, but the way of the Lord abides. 
Come into the house of the Lord and although times are tough, know that
the Lord provides for all.

Lord, I do not understand the times or seasons, but I see the witness
of goodness of Your provision throughout the ages.  Lead me, O Lord,  to see in You the hope You provide for those
who trust in You.  Guide me into the good
life You offer for those who follow You. 
You will watch over our going out and coming in.  Let me understand this and be affirmed in
faith that I may always trust in You.

Lord Jesus, there are many thing
You have taught us.  You have provided
and led the way that each of us might become like You.  Guide me this day, Lord Jesus, so that I
learn from You and do what is pleasing in the Father’s sight.  Help me now and always to look to You as my
example and be guided by what You have taught us to do.  Your ways are wonderful and forever.  Amen.
