“Let not a slanderer be established in the earth; let evil hunt the violent man to overthrow him.” I know that the Lord will maintain the cause of the afflicted, and justice for the poor. Surely the righteous shall give thanks to Your name; the upright shall dwell in Your presence.” (Psalm 140:11-13)
Look at the reality that even our entertainment includes stories where the bad guy does not win. We all long for justice and for goodness to prevail. Evil may seem to prosper for a moment, but it will fail. Only the goodness of the Lord is forever. Only the way of the Lord is everlasting. Come and walk in the way of the Lord and live life as it was designed to be lived.
Lord, I have a very limited view and do not see beyond my own circumstances. Lead me, O Lord, according to Your goodness that I would now and always walk humbly with You, my Lord and God. Keep me from the paths of the wicked and bring me to walk alongside You. In You alone is there hope and a future. In You alone is there truth and justice. In You alone is there life.
Lord Jesus, You have given Your Spirit to be in me and with me always. You abide in me. Guide me today and every day to walk humbly in Your presence. Lead me according to Your goodness to see that in You alone is the hope of the ages. Keep me abiding with You this day according to Your goodness that I would be led by You and not the circumstances in which I find myself. Amen.
