“For, “All flesh is like grass, and all its glory like the flower of grass. The grass withers, and the flower falls off, but the word of the Lord endures forever.” And this is the word which was preached to you” (1 Peter 1:24).
This passage from Isaiah forty is used several times throughout Scripture. It speaks of what the Lord is doing. In this world, there are important people and there are peons. In eternity, there are only children of God. We are to leave behind the one and go to the other. The Lord has spoken, yet we struggle in the world’s messages rather than seeking to live in the word of the Lord. Walk in the narrow way and live as a child of God.
Lord, the world is filled with encouragement to serve the self. Help me to move beyond this to the place where I may live for You in service to others. Continue to lead me in Your mercy Lord in order that I would not fall prey to this world’s sinful deceit. Guide me in the upward way to live according to Your goodness and mercy.
Lord Jesus, when You came to earth, You came lowly and humbly. When You left, You left with nothing, not even the clothes that were on Your back. Yet, You have accomplished salvation for us all. Guide me, Lord, in the way You have established of being a child of the Heavenly Father. Guide me today to accomplish what You would have me say and do. Amen.
