Devotion for Friday, September 20, 2019
“I remember the days of old; I meditate on all Your works; I muse on
the work of Your hands. I spread out my
hands to You; my soul longs for You like a thirsty land.” (Psalm 143:5-6)
Look at the story of God saving
His people. He did so despite their
behavior. God loves His creation and
those whom He has made. He provides for
us all. Walk in the provision of the
Lord giving thanks for His goodness and mercy.
Look for what the Lord has promised and be guided by the truth of all
that He has done and will do for those who walk in His salvation. Come to the Lord.
Lord, I am sometimes lazy and just look at this moment. I then react depending upon how I feel in this moment. Lead me, O Lord, to walk in the goodness of Your grace and mercy and to know Your kindness. Lead me, O Lord, into the way of everlasting life. Guide me now and always to abide in You in the promise that You are abiding in me. Guide my soul to always long for You.
Lord Jesus, You have prepared the journey of salvation for all who believe. Lead me, O Lord, in the way of salvation that I would always walk in the way of righteousness. Lift up my soul to look beyond the moments I find myself in and to live according to Your everlasting goodness. You have come to lead the way. Lead me, O Lord, and give me encouragement to always follow. Amen
