“Blessed be the Lord my Rock, who trains my hands for war, and my fingers for battle – my lovingkindness and my fortress, my high tower and my deliverer, my shield and the One in whom I take refuge, who subdues my people under me.” (Psalm 144:1-2)
The Lord prepares those who are His for the tasks He assigns them. We all must battle in this age for those values which are ours. Are your values the values of the Lord? Are you seeking to do the will of the Lord? Be guided by His goodness and mercy and seek the Lord while He may be found. Know that in Him is life and eternity. Let the Lord always be your refuge.
Lord, grant discernment that I would see what is right. Guide me according to Your goodness to know that in You is the hope of the ages. Lead me in the way You know I need to go to prosper in Your grace. Be my refuge and guide me to always be in Your presence. Help me forward through this life according to Your grace. Show me the way by Your Spirit to listen, grow and follow.
Lord Jesus, You have come to lead the way along the narrow road. You know the pitfalls of this age. You know the problems that come about. You have come that, abiding in You, we may have a life filled with the peace that surpasses all understanding. Guide me in the way of peace that I may wield the sword of the Spirit where needed, but always live according to Your Gospel. Lead me Lord Jesus now and forever. Amen.
