“I think it is right to refresh your memory as long as I live in the tent of this body, because I know that I will soon put it aside, as our Lord Jesus Christ has made clear to me” (2 Peter 1:13-14).
Keep your focus on what is happening. Too often, we lose focus and see only the shadow of death in this world. Keep your eye upon the prize and live into the eternal life which is yours through Christ. Know that in Him is all life and true liberty. He will make clear your path and lead you in the way of righteousness. Be guided by Him and live in the truth of His grace.
Lord, help me to see more clearly. Guide me in the way I need to live each day and help me to hold fast to the promise which You have given me in You. You have made possible my journey in faith. In Your goodness, lead me to be refreshed continuously through Your word and through the encouragement You send as I journey in this life of faith You have given me.
Lord Jesus, thank You for the gift of grace which enables me to live this and every day in the hope of faith. Guide me always in this life You have given me in order that I would be refreshed along the way and be an encouragement to others. Lead me, O Lord, and help me to see that in You I have true life that will pass from this temporary existence into the eternity where You dwell. Amen.
