Devotion for Tuesday, September 24, 2019

“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.
