“For in Scripture it says: “See, I lay a stone in Zion, a chosen and precious cornerstone, and the one who trusts in him will never be put to shame.” (1 Peter 2:6)
Do you trust the Lord? This is the real question for us all. The true answer in this age is that some have begun to trust Him, but we all hold back a little. Do not hold back, but come fully into the life He gives you in faith. Do not drive this life of faith but live it in His goodness and mercy. The Living corner stone invites you to build your life upon Him. He must be the finisher of your faith.
Lord, You know how I tug against You and want You to do what I want You to do. I cannot build my life with You in it. You must take charge and build my life with You as the foundation. Guide me dear Lord Jesus to see through the anxiety of this age and my own self-interest. Guide me to abandon the ways of the world in order that I may live into the life You give through faith. Lead me now and always, Lord Jesus.
Lord Jesus, my Savior, You know how much I need what only You can give. Take me out of the driver’s seat so that I may humbly walk with You leading the way. In Your grace, guide me this day to do what is right and fitting. Lead me to look to You and obey Your commandments. You know what the Father asks. Help me to listen to You and do what is pleasing in the Father’s eyes. Amen.
