Devotion for Wednesday, February 9, 2022

“I thank God whom I serve, as did my ancestors, with a clear conscience, as I remember you constantly in my prayers night and day” (2 Timothy 1:3).

Do you live with a clear conscience?  Many do not.  It is not a matter of living perfectly.  Who in this world does?  It is a matter of walking the path the Lord has placed before you.  Do not be guided by this world, but transformed by the renewing of your mind, keeping all things in the hands of Your Lord and Savior.  Be in prayer and pray for others.  Live out the faith You have been given in hope.

Lord. You have done these things and I am a witness.  Help me to better understand that You have come to lead us into eternal life.  You have taken away my sin so that I might learn to live without sin.  You have given me the gift of life that I might know true life.  Lead me, O Lord, in the way of everlasting life in order that I would be in constant communion with You as I lift up concerns in prayer for others.

Lord Jesus, You taught us to pray without ceasing.  Guide me, O Lord, in the way of this life which You have given me.  Help me reject when the devil accuses, but also to freely accept when You correct.  In and through all things, help me today and every day to be more like You.  You have given me the word of everlasting life and in You alone is all hope and an eternal future. Amen.
