“Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ, who gave Himself for our sins so that He might rescue us from this present evil age, according to the will of our God and Father, to whom be the glory forevermore. Amen” (Galatians 1:3-5).
The will of the Father is that you would believe in Jesus whom He sent. We sometimes forget that it is not by our own power or might that we do these things, but through the power of the One who created all things. Come then and be guided in the goodness of the Lord. Come then and live into the life He gives. Come then and be faithful in an age that is evil. Come into the will of the Father.
Lord, I have begun to understand what is needed. You know all that is needed. Guide me, O Lord, in the way of everlasting life that I would not be hindered in this age of evil, but grow into the likeness of Christ and become what You are making of me. You know the path before me that I must walk by faith. Guide me in the faith You have given me that I would walk firmly and boldly.
Lord Jesus, You have come to rescue us from this present age. You know the pitfalls and traps that are set along the way. You overcame them for us who could never overcome them. Take my hand and lead the way. Guide me according to Your goodness to see and know that in following You I am being led out of the wickedness that is the snare of this age. May I learn from You how to be faithful. Amen.
