“But the Lord stood by me and strengthened me, so that through me the message might be fully proclaimed and all the Gentiles might hear it. So I was rescued from the lion’s mouth. The Lord will rescue me from every evil deed and bring me safely into his heavenly kingdom. To him be the glory forever and ever. Amen” (2 Timothy 4:17-18).
The Lord is the One who preserves us according to His will. Be guided then by the Lord that you may learn to hold fast no matter what may come. Know that in the Lord is all truth and the only future worth living. In Him you have hope. Apart from Him is separation and death. Come then and walk humbly with your Maker and know that He who made you has provided the way of life.
Lord, lead me in the way of truth. Guide me according to Your goodness to see that in You is all hope and an eternal future. Lead me Lord and help me to follow. Guide me always in the way You know I need to go. Help me to see through this age and its fog. Guide me by the mercy of grace You provide so that I may have the needed time to understand these things. Lead me, Lord, and I will be led. Guide me, Lord, and help my feet to follow. You alone know the way we need to go.
Lord Jesus, You are the way, truth, and life. Guide me according to Your goodness to walk in the grace You have provided me. Grow in me strength of character and the willingness to go where You would have me go. Lead me, O Lord, and help me to always follow where You lead. In You alone, Lord, is hope and an eternal future. Bring me safely into Your heavenly kingdom. Amen.
