Devotion for Thursday, January 23, 2020

“For even if there are so-called gods whether in heaven or on earth, as
indeed there are many gods and many lords, yet for us there is but one God, the
Father, from whom are all things and we exist for Him; and one Lord, Jesus
Christ, by whom are all things, and we exist through Him” (1 Corinthians

Even though the world offers all
kinds of ideas and ideals, focus upon the True and One God who is the Creator
of all. Do not worry about all the offers out there. Come to the Lord and let
Him guide you through life amidst the myriad thoughts that float around. It is
not to figure out, but to taste and see that the Lord alone is good and
gracious. All things exist through Him.

Lord, I am easily distracted and chase this way and that. Help me O
Lord to see that in You alone is the hope of all ages. Guide me through the
noise of this world to see that only in You do I find the hope and salvation
that is true for all times and in all places. Lead me now and always in the way
of truth that I would know that You are the One through whom and in whom are
all things.

Lead me Lord Jesus in the way of
truth. You have come to reveal truth and lead those who follow in the way
established before the foundation of the world was laid. Guide me, O Lord, in
that way You know I need to go that I may live as one who has faith. Help me
through the struggles and save me from this world of insanity. Guide me in the
way of true faith that I may abide in You. Amen.
