Devotion for Sunday, July 12, 2020
“And even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing, in whose case the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelieving so that they might not see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God” (2 Corinthians 4:3-4).
There is great mystery. We probably know much less than we think and the mystery of God is much greater, but what has been revealed has been revealed for us, and there are those who see the mystery and those who will not. Do not focus upon what others will not believe, but upon the revelation of the mystery that the Lord has granted you. Walk in the light of His revelation.
Lord, it is a strange thing, but I am often influenced by what others do not believe. Help me to humbly and simply believe what You have revealed. In this age of wickedness, it is so easy to be carried away by the thoughts and actions of others. Lead me Lord in Your light and the knowledge that all things have their being in and through You. You alone are God and in You alone is light and life.
Lord Jesus, You have come to shine light into the world. All things have their being through You. Guide me in the revelation You have given that I may be influenced by You and not by the world. Hold me fast to You that I may walk with You and not be led by the wickedness of this world. Through all things, may I walk with You in the mysteries of life and eternity. Amen.
