“I hate them with perfect hatred; I count them my enemies.  Search me, O God, and know my heart; try me, and know my anxieties; and see if there is any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.”  (Psalm 138:22-24)

The Lord knows every circumstance.  The Lord knows the situation you are in.  When you are in places of adversity, the Lord knows.  Yes, the wicked abide for a time, but they will not rule forever.  The Lord is Sovereign over all that He has made.  Do not trust in your circumstances, but in the One who has allowed circumstances to flow in the stream of time.  He will vindicate the righteous.

Lord, teach me to not be anxious amidst any circumstance, but to see that in You is the only hope for resolution.  Guide me in the way of righteousness that I may now and always abide in Your goodness.  Lead me in the way of everlasting life that I would not live in resentment, but in the hope You give.  Direct me by Your Word along the paths of righteousness for Your name’s sake that I may abide in You.

Thank You, Lord Jesus, for clearing the way that I may now and always walk according to Your goodness.  Lead me along the paths You have established that I would trust in Your leading, knowing that You have already made the way of  true righteousness sure.  Grant me a right heart when dealing with the wicked that I may not harbor wickedness in my heart.  Lead me by Your grace, Lord.  Amen.
