“Rescue me and deliver me from the hand of foreigners, whose mouth speaks lying words, and whose right hand is a right hand of falsehood – that our sons may be as plants grown up in their youth; that our daughters may be as pillars,” (Psalm 144:11-12a)
There are those in the world who speak with lying tongues. Their mouths are full of deceit. It may be politically incorrect to say there are liars, but the Lord has declared that there are those who will not abide by the truth. You, however, have the words of eternal life before you. Will you walk in the way of truth or in the way of those who speak with deceitful tongues?
Lord, open my ears to hear the truth. Guide me according to Your goodness to see that in You alone is all that is needed. Guide me according to Your goodness to walk in the way of the righteous. Lead me according to Your will to live the kind of life that Your grace calls me to, that I may be upright in Your sight. Help me now and always to see that in You alone is all hope.
Come, Holy Spirit, and minister to my heart that I may see the goodness of the way of salvation. Lead me in righteousness for Your sake that I may learn humbly from You. Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing in Your sight. Guide me now and always to live into the life to which I have been called by grace. Lead me, Holy Spirit, in the way of life. Amen.
