“And brought Israel out from their midst, for His lovingkindness is everlasting, with a strong hand and an outstretched arm, for His lovingkindness is everlasting.” (Psalm 136:11-12)
If you step back and look at history, you will see the hand of the Lord as He guides His people; not only the Israelites, but also those who follow Christ. Look to the Lord and see His goodness, and know that He watches over all people. The wicked one may seek destruction, but the Lord preserves those who are His. Come into His lovingkindness and see that the Lord is good.
Lord, the epoch of time unfolds, but I see only what is happening now. Guide me to see the bigger picture and know that time and time again, You have brought the faithful to a place of safety. Lead me, O Lord, as one of Your people that I may abide in You now and forever, dwelling securely in Your presence no matter what is happening in this world. Let me remain in Your goodness.
Lord Jesus, the world goes through its motions and turmoil comes. You had much of it while You walked in Your ministry. Guide me, O Lord, to trust in Your leading that I would walk humbly with You today in Your grace. Help my eyes to look to You and see the goodness You bring to the world. Lead me, O Lord, in the way of Your justice and the truth You have spoken for all ages. Amen.
