“Remember, O Lord, against the sons of Edom the day of Jerusalem, who said, “Raze it, raze it to its very foundation.”  (Psalm 137:7)

The day will come when all the wickedness of this world will be razed.  The faithful will be vindicated.  Do not trust in the justice of men, but trust in the One who created all things.  Come into His presence and live in His provision.  Know that He who promised is not slow as some count slowness, but is patient that all of those who are His have the opportunity to come into His eternal presence.

Lord, help me to see through whatever turmoil this world brings our way.  Help me understand that You have a purpose in and through all things. Guide me to live by Your promises and not by the circumstances in which I find myself.  Help me to fulfill the meaning of the First Commandment and to have no other gods before you, but to love, trust, and always obey You always.

Lord Jesus, You have freed us by grace to live into Your example of being a willing and obedient child of the Heavenly Father.  Guide me this day to live out my faith in a way that looks to You and not to this world filled with wickedness.  Lead me that I may walk in Your presence and to the glory of the Father.  Keep me close to You that I may not stray from Your side.  Amen.
