Devotion for Monday, November 16, 2020
For as many as are of the works of the Law are under a curse; for it is written, “Cursed is everyone who does not abide by all things written in the book of the law, to perform them” (Galatians 3:10).
The curse is real and we are under it. But, through the death of Christ on the cross, the power of sin has lost its sting. The power of sin is the law and Christ has overcome by perfectly fulfilling for us what was needed. This does not give us permission to do as we please, but liberty to live out the goodness of God’s love and direction in a world that is constantly at war with God and one another.
Lord, teach me these invaluable lessons that I would not be hindered by wrong thinking or a lack of action. Guide me into the life You are preparing for me that I would now and always look to You, the source of all life, for guidance. Let me not live as one cursed, but as one who has been set free to live in the power You give to become a child of the Heavenly Father. Lead me in through and by all the means You know are necessary.
Lord Jesus, You did not come to do away with the law but to fulfill it. Guide me, O Lord, in the way of truth that I may now and always be guided in the truth toward You and all that You have in store for those who follow in Your footsteps. You know all that is needed. Help me to trust You more and more each day so that I can journey truly with You in the way You know I need to go. Amen.
