“The Lord gives freedom to the prisoners. The Lord opens the eyes of the blind; the Lord raises those who are bowed down; the Lord loves the righteous. The Lord watches over the strangers; He relieves the fatherless and widow; but the way of the wicked He turns upside down.” (Psalm 146:7b-9)
In this life, there are many injustices. Each in their own way have been crippled by the ways of this world steeped in rebellion against the Lord. Yet, one by one, He lifts up those who turn to Him and removes their infirmity. Mind you, in the Lord, one can still remain physically or mentally impaired and yet freed by grace. He frees the captives though they remain in an earthly dungeon. Come into the freedom of the Lord.
Lord, help me see that in Your faithfulness You do all of these things and more. Teach me by Your good news to know that in You alone is the hope for all people. Though this world be passing away, yet in You there is eternity. Guide me, O Lord, in the way of everlasting life that I would walk now and forever with You by my side. Lead me according to Your goodness and mercy.
Lord Jesus, You have come to lead the way into everlasting life. Guide me now and always in the way of life that I would walk humbly with You as You lead me. Lift me up to see that in You is the hope for every age. May I now and always be found following You wherever You lead knowing that You have given the words of everlasting life. Lead me, O Savior, in the way of Your salvation. Amen.
