“Let them praise the name of the Lord, for He commanded and they were created. He also established them forever and ever; He made a decree which shall not pass away.” (Psalm 148:5-6)
In the beginning was the Word and the Word was spoken and it was so. The Word of the Lord proceeds and it will not come back void. Come into the truth and walk according to the Word which endures forever. Know that all else will pass away, but that what the Lord has determined will be as He says. In the Lord is life and truth. It is He who establishes things and they shall be as He so determines.
Lord, teach me to love Your Word. Guide me through Your Word that my life may be illumined by truth. Help me now and always to see that in You is hope and an eternal future. Lead me through all of the false teachings of this age to rely on the truth of Your Word ringing in my ears. May I now and always rest in the truth of Your Law and Gospel knowing that You alone are the giver of life.
Lord Jesus, You have come that we may have life and have it abundantly. Guide me in the truth of all of the words that You have spoken. Guide me to know that You have come that we may have life, liberty and an abundance of grace that comes through faith. Guide me, O Lord, according to the Father’s will to seek first the kingdom knowing that all else will be added as needed. Amen.
