“Do not put your trust in princes, nor in a son of man, in whom there is no help. His spirit departs, he returns to his earth; in that very day his plans perish.” (Psalm 146:3-4)
Sadly, too many people put their trust in temporary things. Set your priority on eternal things. The Lord is forever and He has created all things. Do not trust in those things created, but in the One who made all things. In Him alone is the hope of all the ages. The Lord is forever and in Him is the only forever hope. Walk humbly before your Creator and trust in Him above all things.
Lord, I am led astray by those people and things around me that tempt me. Lead me not into temptation, but into Your eternal arms of grace and mercy. Help me to see that in You alone is the hope of the ages. Guide me according to Your eternal plan and purpose to walk as You know I need to walk that I may be guided forever by Your Word and Your will. Lead me away from all that is temporary.
Thank You, Lord Jesus, for coming to lead the way for the faithful. Guide me now and always in the everlasting way of salvation that I may become ever more like You. Help me this day to see that You have come that all who believe might have life and have it abundantly. Guide me in the way of truth which You have established that I may walk in the way of Your salvation. Amen.
