“But my eyes are upon You, O GOD the Lord; in You I take refuge; do not leave my soul destitute. Keep me from the snares they have laid for me, and from the traps of the workers of iniquity. Let the wicked fall into their own nets, while I escape safely.” (Psalm 141:8-10)
There are times when it feels as though the Lord is not near. Keep your eyes upon the Lord and know that He is always near. Be led by the truth of His presence and not the lies of the wickedness of this age. The wicked will trap themselves, but those who look to the Lord will continue in freedom. Live a life that is led by the freedom of the Lord and know His goodness.
Lord, You know that I am struggling daily with the things of this world. It is all around me. It seems for at least awhile that the wicked prosper. Lead me away from thinking I can understand Your justice and instead focus on the fact that You are good and merciful. Keep my eyes upon You always and help me walk through each day in the guidance of Your Spirit to do Your will.
Lord Jesus, You know the struggle it is in this world with those around You who were either pressing into wanting something or else seeking to destroy You. Help me follow Your example and always look to the Father for guidance and encouragement. Keep me on the narrow path of Your salvation that I would now and always live according to the will of the Heavenly Father. Amen.
