“O daughter of Babylon, you devastated one, how blessed will be the one who repays you with the recompense with which you have repaid us.  How blessed will be the one who seizes and dashes your little ones against the rock.”  (Psalm 137:8-9)

Babylon is no more.  There is that place of stones that remind us that it once existed.  The Word of the Lord speaks and tells the truth.  What has come to pass is a witness to us that we may believe the importance to us of the things that the Word says.  Do not place your hope in the systems of this world, but in the One who created this world.  Be blessed by trusting in the One who made all things.

Lord, I look at this world and am tossed about by the waves that come crashing.  Lift me up to see that all things are in Your hands and that one day You will see to it that those who have done harm come to naught.  But let me trust in what You will do and not in myself.  Guide me, O Lord, according to Your ways that I would be led by You and the promise of Your Word.

Come Lord Jesus and be my minister today.  Guide me according to Your Word and the Father’s will to walk humbly in Your presence.  Teach me to see things as You see them.  Guide me into obedience that I would humbly obey all that You command.  You have created me for Your purpose and have redeemed me through Your own blood.  Guide me in the salvation You have prepared in the sight of all people.  Amen.
