“Praise the Lord!  Praise God in
His sanctuary; praise Him in His mighty firmament!  Praise Him for His mighty acts; praise Him
according to His excellent greatness!” 
(Psalm 150:1-3)

The sanctuary of the Lord is the
Lord Himself.  Why do you trust in
created things when the Lord, who is forever, is your strength and refuge.  Come into the presence of the Lord and abide
in the safety of His presence now and forever. 
Know that He who made all things knows the plans He has for those who
are His.  Praise Him for the mighty acts
He has and will do.

Lord, teach me to look beyond today in order to know that it is You who
is guiding me all the days of our lives. 
All time is in Your hands.  Guide
me, O Lord, in the way of truth that I may abide with You now and forever.  Lead me according to Your purposes to see
that in You is the hope before us all. 
Lead me and I will follow.  Lead
me to abide now and always with You.

Jesus, You promised that if we
abide in You, You will abide in us.  Help
me learn, understand and live in this truth. 
Lead me to see that in You alone is the hope for all people of every
age.  Teach me to know that regardless of
the circumstances of this age, You are always with me and will guide me through
all of life.  You are my Lord and
Savior.  Guide me today and always.  Amen.
